Avoiding Quicksand



"The Master said, 'Those who are without virtue, cannot abide long either in a condition of poverty and hardship, or in a condition of enjoyment." The beautiful flowers in the forest call to all. They beckon like a beautiful young woman. The young and foolish wander into the forest and begin sinking in the quicksand before they get to the flowers. Meanwhile, the wise remain on the path, free from such dangers. Those who are balanced and self-reliant, those to whom the dirt of the earth, a rock and gold are alike demonstrate great wisdom.
