Lesson 9 – The Man of Understanding

“Watchful, like men crossing a winter stream. Alert, like men aware of danger. Courteous, like visiting guests. Yielding like ice about to melt. Simple, like uncarved blocks of wood.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 15, Lao Te Ching)

“Anyone can play the game. As a matter of fact, almost everyone plays the game except the man of understanding. He goes through the routine with you and laughs and has a good time, and you can’t understand why he’s not serious about this. It’s because he understands that there is nothing to be serious about, because the whole divine action of God is entirely present. And so this man of understanding is accused of being everything but understanding.” – John-Roger
