Let the TAO show you the Way

The Bible says that you should go with a brother twice as far as he asks. Devotion to a brother can lead only to mutual progress.
(A Course in Miracles)

Love is GOD's language, so try to speak it whenever you can. Yet, don't force it either. There is a saying from Confucius, "Every truth has four corners. As a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three." Well, I wouldn't mind to show my brother the second, or perhaps even the third, but there comes a time when the fire has to be ignited inside of him, and he has to run with it. As they say, you can lead a horse to the water, but you can't make it drink.

The message of the TAO is pretty plain and simple. There is love and joy wherever the Master treads, but if the friend is distracted by the glitter of the anticipated gold on the horizon, the Master will keep walking. It is not in judgment, it is also not because love is lacking, it is simply the realization that the brother might be ready next time the spiral has returned to the window of opportunity to change course. 

You don't have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Let the TAO show you the WAY.
