ABOVE AND BELOW:
Keeping still above.
Movement at the foot of the mountain.
It can be heard but not seen.
The upper teeth hold firm.
The lower teeth, the jaw, moves.
One must impose limits on one’s initiatives.
Moderation is essential.
In coming and going, restraint is needed.
What goes into the mouth and what comes out will determine the outcome.
Stillness in motion.
Stillness without, movement within.
Footsteps in the night.
Quiet as a mouse.
Movement that is not seen.
Seeds must be planted and nurtured before growth can be observed.
One must stabilize relationships
And gain respect
Before one asks for something.
One who talks will not achieve.
One who achieves will not talk.
There is no music without restraint,
The first son to the third son.
The first son speaks.
The third son listens.
The first son acts.
The third son waits.
What is not said will have a greater effect than what is said.
06-12 CAP: 27. Corners of the Mouth
Discretion is needed.
One must assess who is trustworthy
And who is not.
At the beginning secrets must be maintained.
As one’s understanding improves
A path will become apparent
But it is still not an appropriate time for talking.
