Way thought for the day: 7th December 2011

The wise person follows The Way, which is the natural way, doing what is required of him. Like an experienced tracker, he leaves no tracks; like a good speaker, his speech is fluent. He makes no error, so needs no tally. Like a good door which needs no lock, as he is open when it is required of him and closed at other times, yet remaining accessible. Like a good binding, he is secure, without the need of borders. Knowing that virtue may grow from example, this is the way in which the Caulbearers teach, abandoning no one who stops to listen. Thus, from experience of the Caulbearers, all might learn, and so might gain. There is mutual respect twixt teacher and pupil; for, without respect, there would be void and confusion.
