The Simple Way, Part 19

The Simple Way
The Life & Teachings of Zhouzi
by Scott Bradley

After a disciple had observed Zhouzi easily silence a deputation of disputatious Confucian scholars, he exclaimed, “Truly master, your way triumphs over every other! Fortunate are we to have you for our teacher!”

“Surrender is our only triumph; any other is just more bondage,” replied Zhouzi. “This way is not a faction, but an all-affirming ‘Yes!’. But you would make it Something and become Someone therein. Yet know that it is empty, and only no one truly walks within.”
