Harmonizing with the Tao

To be perfectly harmonized with
the Tao is like perfectly centered
clay on the potter’s wheel.


It can not be verbalized, but
you feel it when you
have achieved it.


Just like clay, we can
get off balance, but we can
always center ourselves again.


Clay can get fatigued. So
can we. Centering in a fatigued
state is impossible.


Strong, even clay without
air bubbles is the easiest
to center.


It takes courage and lots of
practice, and to accept
failures until we succeed.
