Snow

As many have merely heard of snow but never seen it, so many are the teachers who have read only in books about the attributes of the Tao, but have not realized them in their lives. And just as many may have seen but not tasted it, so many are the teachers who have got only a glimpse of wisdom, but have not understood its real essence. He who has tasted the snow can say what it tastes like. He who is one with the Tao is the only one who can relate what the attributes of the Tao are.
