The Art of Learning:
Initially I was very drawn to the Tao Te Ching, the Taoist philosophy. It was helping me deal with the balance of these external and internal issues with my chess life. Tai chi is the martial embodiment of Taoist philosophy. Initially, I had no intention of competing in the martial arts; it was just the meditation.
Simple words can transmit the message.
To learn this, study nature.
A fierce tornado won’t last all morning.
Neither does a sudden downpour continue all day.
The Tao is the architect of nature. If the great Tao cannot
make fierce and sudden things last, What hope does man have
Of sustaining force and temper?
