The Way – the natural way to live that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and others taught about, is not stuck in a permanent form. Teaching others what it is using words and body language one way may work today, but not tomorrow.
The Tao Te Ching is written with apophatic pedagogy for this reason.
You do not need one teacher of the law for this reason.
You do not need a church for this reason.
You do not need religion for this reason.
The natural way can only be pointed at. Then it has to be experienced. Then from the experience comes the storehouse of wisdom.
