Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.The sage (or Jesus) is welcoming. The sage turns no one away. All that is asked of us is to accept the sage for who and what she is: a teacher, a friend, and a role model.
~ King James version ~
Therefore the sage takes care of all men
And abandons no one.
He takes care of all things
And abandons nothing.
This is called "following the light."
~ from Verse 27 of the Tao Te Ching ~
When we are in the presence of a sage, we feel better about ourselves and the world around us -- not because of a sense of prestige or status, but because the sage encourages each of us to embrace sagacity and virtue on our own terms.
