You can speak about the Dao and write about the Dao, but unless you are practicing the wisdom and teachings of the Dao, you are not practicing the Dao. You are merely a charlatan and the Dao will see to it that the charlatans will be rooted out. Those who are practicing hanky-panky will be unveiled and humbled. One cannot evade the Dao. Make sure that each day you are firmly rooted and committed to your path.
