Reflections on The Way
It is truth to say that all thought and all words are arranged in their particular sequences to make sentences, and sentences to make paragraphs, and paragraphs to make up chapters, and chapters to make up books that make up volumes, and are as all things that come from the Force of Life. That which is ordered and in its proper place is The Way; and so do all things return to their parts, which is their source, which is the teachings of The Way.
As things without obvious or recognizable source do not exist, those who ignore their source are as dead. One must be content with what they are, and, though stretching themselves to their limits, must recognize those limits. A dog cannot be a cow no more than can a man be a woman, or a cabbage a fruiting tree.
The silence of thoughtful ways is The Way; and it is filled with strength. Not even the roar of bombs or great wars can silence the silence of The Way which may reside within your mind, going unnoticed until sought out, unappreciated until discovered.
The compassion of the follower of The way is not guided by religious fervour, nor by expectation of reward.
The wisdom of The Way needs no dogma, and the teaching of its empathies need no rules. Her integrity needs no laws, and her enlightenment can be found without great temples.
Living The Way is living in harmony with all things. It is beyond culture.
Oneness with the thinking of The Way is more than just philosophy; it is beyond philosophy.
Emptiness, like silence, cannot be defined. The Way had no name, as men in far-off times considered that it needed no name; it is just “The Way”.
The ignorant see nothing; neither do they hear anything that spoils their fantasies. They say much, but are never in touch within The Way, and therefore never in touch with themselves.
The wise love only truth, while the foolish love that which avoids the truth when the truth is unpalatable or uncomfortable to them. The truth does not capture the essence of The Way; it is The Way.
Those who are in harmony with The Way need no words to explain truth, and much less to defend it. It is as it is. It is whole and complete within itself.
The noble followers of The Way know that truth can be captured within a falsehood, but with patience the truth will separate itself.
The Way is not in the sky. The Way is in the heart, and perceived by reason.
No one saves us but ourselves. We ourselves must walk the path that leads to enlightenment.
Your work is to discover your true abilities. Work, and then with all your heart give yourself to them.
To conquer one’s mind is to conquer one’s self, which is difficult, as you stand too close.
We hope that these thoughts may help visitors to our website to ponder upon the meaning of their existence. You might perhaps reflect upon them as you consider not only these truths alone, but rather understand them as an extension of the truths that you yourself may well have observed and learned of as you travel on your journey, and as you strive to make your passing notable.
