The Dao is a natural thing. When we’re trying to be one with the Dao, it’s got to be natural too. You can’t force it. The square peg just doesn’t go into the round hole. It takes time to sand it down and get it to fit. It don’t matter how many retreats you’ve gone to, or if you’ve been to India or Tibet or Nepal, it doesn’t matter how many books you’ve bought. It’s got to come natural. Nobody becomes one with the Dao overnight. The Dao isn’t that cheap. You don’t find it on the street corner beckoning you, or leaning into your car asking you questions, although you could find it on the street corner somewhere if you look hard enough.
