Our predecessors spoke correctly when they said, “One naturally shuts one’s mouth following three years of study.”
When one stops talking naturally following three years of study, it means the beginning of putting aside oneself. The bigger the art reveals itself to be, the smaller oneself becomes.
At the beginning of study, a mountain one sees is just a mountain. At the point when one stops talking, a mountain is no longer just a mountain.
Many who study collect multiple forms. The more they collect the more they think they know. But the process of learning truly begins when one sees that the content of one form is more than one can deal with. As the art becomes big, the self becomes small.
Every component has a source, an expression and is capable of progression.
Let go, in order to big the art and forgo the self.
