the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

Return to Path of the Sage


“I seek not to know all the answers, but to understand the questions.”

— Kwai Chang (Grasshopper) Caine, as portrayed by David Carradine on Kung Fu (TV series, 1972-1975)

It has been a while.

The time has come, it seems- to wander, to ponder and contemplate where I went wrong.  A course correction, some time to be alone and try to figure out where my place should be.

I have overstepped.

What is the nature of the Uncarved Block?  What potential lies in being nothing, so that one might have everything to give?

Taoist monks observed the universe, as well as the immediate earth around them; physicists of today confirm much of what they wrote.  Where is my proper place amongst all things?

There has been an imbalance.  I cannot remain secluded, for this is not Tao- but I need time to myself, time to just be, and see if my path will move back to its rightful place.

  1. Just checking to see if you’re still blogging. I’ve got this new blog now, but just to jog your memory, my old one was joynpain2. I’d love to catch up and see how you’re doing.


    • Joy! Yes, I’m not as active as I used to be, because the chronic pain is just crushing the energy out of me. I had your birthday in my calendar, and I wanted to wish you happy birthday, but I didn’t know how to reach you. icloud… are you using an iDevice, then? (I say iDevice because I never know who’s rocking an iPad and who’s rocking an iPhone)

      • Lol…positive on the iDevice lol. The email I’m using for my blog is (I’m weird…I find it easier to esperare my email accounts than to try to separate the messages in one lol). Go ahead and email me there and I’ll give you my iCloud address since it’s more “permanent”?

        I’m really very sorry to hear that your pain has been so bad. I had hoped that the stimulator would have worked for you.
