There is no one method for attaining
realization of the Tao.
To regard any method as the method is to
create a duality, which can only delay
your understanding of
the subtle truth.
The mature person perceives the
fruitlessness of rigid
external methodologies;
remembering this, he keeps his attitude
unstructured at all times and thus is
always free to pursue
the Integral Way.

He studies the teachings of the masters.
He dissolves all concepts of duality.
He pours himself out in service to others.
He performs his inner cleansing and
does not disturb his teacher with
unnecessary entanglements, thus
preserving the subtle spiritual
connection with the teacher's
divine energy.

Gently eliminating all obstacles to
his own understanding, he constantly
maintains his unconditional sincerity.
His humility, perseverance, and 
adaptability evoke the response
of the universe and fill him
with divine light.

-Brian Browne Walker,  Hua Hu Ching:  The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu
Verse 18
