Seeking the inner path
A tale from ancient China - a noble man passing a potter at work, asks him how he is able to form vessels that possess such convincing beauty. "Oh," answered the potter, "you are looking at the mere outward shape. What I am forming lies within. I am interested only in what remains after the pot has been broken."
It is not the pots we are forming, but ourselves. (M.C.Richards in her inspiring book CENTERING)
