Book content

( . . . )

The staff is akin to the Path - it's straight and unassuming at first glance but it holds many intricacies, which are impossible to grasp with a limited mind. The staff doesn't yield its secrets to those who are impatient, arrogant, cowardly, or corrupted with affluence - only those who understand the essence of things can hope to unlock its potential.

To learn the staff you need to understand three principles:

- All desires must be reined in. All thoughts must serve the Great Goal - Emotions lead you astray from the Path and therefore they lead you to ruin - The staff is not just your weapon. It's a continuation of your very self.

And remember, that blindly performing the techniques and learning the motions won't teach you the most important thing - the Unity, the greatest of the Nine Virtues.
