Just to remind you I'm still around, I thought I'd tease you with this:
Tracey bought them for me.
And because they go together so well, here's a verse from the Tao te Ching:
|Please have one.
A skilful traveller leaves no track.
A skilful speaker makes no slip.
A skilful reckoner needs no counting rod.
A skilfully made door requires no bolts, yet it cannot be opened.
A skilful binding has no cords or knots, yet it cannot be untied.
Therefore, the True Person is skilful in assisting people, and abandons nobody;
Is skilful in assisting things, and abandons nothing.
This is called “Following the Inner Light.”
Therefore, the skilful person is the teacher of the person without skill. The person without skill is the material for the skilful person.
If you do not respect the teacher, if you do not care for the material, you are on the road to confusion and your cleverness will not save you.
This is an essential principle.
That's all for now! I shall return, in the fullness of time.
