That was Zen, this is Tao...

Much of what we learn has no real meaning or value to anyone outside of ourselves. Dropping something seems to mean that we discard theories and bits of information we don't find to be practical wisdom.

Over time, the most insignificant seeming things will just "take over". The violets have "broken" the rocks because they grew in small cracks and forced them open.

The seed of enlightenment, when planted in the rock hard mind of a completely unenlightened person, will grow and "break the rocks" if given the proper nourishment.

One of my favorite childhood memories is of flowers in the city. Lily of the Valley, Buttercups and wild Violets, breaking through the tar and cement. Flowering despite adversity.

Kinda gives you...hope.

Always giving.

Thank you, Kintama. I think you will be a good karate teacher someday.

Life is like an earthen pot. Only when it is shattered does it manifest its emptiness.

Our life is so full of what we do, that only when we die do the people around us truly understand how short life is.
