The ancient Ones
were damn impressive.
They were deep. Real deep.
Words can’t even begin to describe
how deep they were.
You can only talk
about how they acted.
They were careful,
like someone walking on thin ice.
They were cautious,
like a soldier behind enemy lines.
They were polite,
like a guest at a party.
They moved quickly, like melting ice.
They were as plain as a block of wood.
Their minds were as wide as a valley,
and their hearts as clear
as spring water
CHAPTER 65: TAO TE CHING. RON HOGAN
In ancient times,
leaders who were right with Tao
didn’t teach everybody
how to become enlightened.
They kept people’s lives simple.
People who know too much
can’t be taught anything.
