Good travelers leave no tracks.
Good speakers make no flaws.
Good counters use no calculators.
Good doors have no locks and cannot be opened.
Well made knots cannot be loosened.

The sage takes care of everyone
and rejects no one.
She takes care of all things
and abandons nothing.
This is the secret path to awareness.

A good woman is a bad woman’s teacher.
A bad woman is a good woman’s lesson.

If one does not respect their teacher or love their lessons,
confusion results –
no matter how clever one is.

This is the vital secret.
