The Master said: The Way - how deep its dwelling, how pure its clearness! Without it, the bells and chiming stones will not sound. The bells and stones have voices but, unless they are struck, they will not sound. The ten thousand things - who can make them be still?Life is what we experience it to be because of the unfathomable Grand Mystery. Everything that we encounter and everything that we feel exists because of a process or spark that we can never comprehend. So, why do we spend so much time trying to figure out what can't be figured out?
