Tahui

‘You’ve indicated you want me to instruct you by letter in the direct essentials. This very thought of seeking instruction in the direct essentials has already stuck your head into a bowl of glue.’ (Swampland Flowers)

For maximum value, I feel I should stop the quote right there (plus right now I am too lazy to type out the rest of the letter that Tahui wrote to his disciple). The gist of his response is to meet things with the curiosity of a three-year-old, and then keep contemplating it without thinking about such useless fripperies as ‘direct essentials’. Got it?
