in reply to Tao Perl Ching - The Scripture of the Way of Perl

In attempting to make much of the wisdom we possess, we demonstrate ourselves to not be truly wise. Having lost sight of the fundamentals, our understanding of the words of wisdom becomes an understanding of inferior values which we pretend are the true values.

Yet the tao remains as the tao was - a prescription for how to live our lives. Accept its rhythms, discard rigid preconceptions for the readiness to accept what comes, and that which needs to happen will happen in its own time and place. Without apparent effort.
