53. The Master said, “Practitioners have three types of teachers: a human teacher, who teaches us through his or her speech, writing, and conduct; the universe as teacher, which awakens us through the wordless reality arrayed before our eyes; and our conscience as teacher, which rouses one’s own self. If a person aspires to attain the great Way, one should receive guidance well from all three of these teachers.”
