TAO TE CHING 27

heavensss

Skilled travelers
Leave neither
Trace nor track
Skilled speech
Is without taint or error
Skilled mathematicians
Need no tools for counting

A good safe
Has neither bolts nor bars
Yet cannot be opened
A good knot
Has neither rope nor string
Yet cannot come undone

In this way, the sage, throughout eternity
Skilfully rescues all men
Without abandoning any of them
Skilfully liberates all beings
Without neglecting any of them

This is called The Concealed Practice of the Enlightened

For this reason,
The good person
Is the inept person’s teacher
The inept person
Is the good person’s raw material

Not revering one’s teacher
Not loving one’s raw material
Even if intelligent and discerning
One will be greatly misguided!

This is called The Crux
Of the sublime spiritual mystery
