“Knowing the constant gives perspective. This perspective is impartial. Impartiality is the highest nobility. The highest nobility is Divine.”
(From A New Way of Thinking, A New Way of Being Experiencing the Tao Te Ching)
“Do you walk to school or buy your lunch?”
“Keep your arms attached to your wrists at all times and enjoy the ride.”
“We’ll know when we find out.”
In other words, dear reader, I got nothing on this one. The first step is admitting I have a problem, right?
For what it’s worth this passage does somehow remind me of a totally unrelated verse from the bible that is only similar in its progression of ideas:
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” (Romans 5:3-4)
And there you have it. Here’s hoping you have the character to persevere the suffering of watching me come to know the constant with impartiality and divine nobility.
