- Lao Tzu
if there is one thing I HAVE learned it is to be patient and at peace with what you have (or haven't which I suppose is more appropriate for me!). I began to think "ah, what the fuddy duddy, I might as well take a risk and have a crack. But just as quickly I came to my senses. No. It's happened before. Wait.
I grabbed the next exercise book. The front inside cover had a favourite mantra of mine handwritten. It settled me.
Be soft in your practice.
Think of the method as a fine, silvery stream
Not a raging waterfall.
Follow the stream, have faith in it's course.
It will go its own way
Meandering here, trickling there
It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices
Just follow it
Never let it out of your sight
It will take you
