    A MAN IS NOT BORN TO MASTERY.
    A MASTER IS NEVER PROUD.
    HE DOES NOT TALK DOWN TO OTHERS.
    OWNING NOTHING, HE MISSES NOTHING.
    HE IS NOT AFRAID.
    HE DOES NOT TREMBLE.
    NOTHING BINDS HIM.
    HE IS INFINITELY FREE.
    SO CUT THROUGH
    THE STRAP AND THE THONG AND THE ROPE.
    LOOSEN THE FASTENINGS.
    UNBOLT THE DOORS OF SLEEP
    AND AWAKE.
    THE MASTER ENDURES
    INSULTS AND ILL TREATMENT
    WITHOUT REACTING.
    FOR HIS SPIRIT IS AN ARMY.
    HE IS NEVER ANGRY.
    HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES.
    HE NEVER STRAYS, HE IS DETERMINED.
    THIS BODY IS MY LAST, HE SAYS!
    LIKE WATER ON THE LEAF OF A LOTUS FLOWER
    OR A MUSTARD SEED ON THE POINT OF A NEEDLE,
    HE DOES NOT CLING.
