but lets himself be shaped by the Tao,
as rugged and common as stone.

To give and to receive are one in truth.
I will forgive all things today, that I may learn how
to accept the truth in me, and come to recognize my

On the half hour: To give and to receive are one in truth.

Is Gentle, Loving, Kind
One of the first lessons or aspirations of a brother, one of the points of brotherhood, is to overcome egotism; then the flowers of the spirit bloom and you have your saint. A saint is human, is understanding; a saint is able to enter into all feelings, the joys and the sorrows of another. A saint is all love.
