The First Lesson
We live in the physical world, driven by spirit, tempered by mind. All that you see is important, subtle. The passage of days, the cycles of the Moon, the rising and falling of the tides, all these have subtle but important effects. Learn to see the instant in the whole.
The Second Lesson
In repetition there is chance, in chance, there is pattern. Patterns may be repeated, chance may be successful.
The Third Lesson
Backwards and forwards, closer and closer, coming by slow degrees to resolution.
The Fourth Lesson
Patterns within patterns. Sometimes cycles of change do not appear consistent, sometimes patterns are more than one level deep. Change something near, and something far may change as well. Many steps may be necessary to achieve success.
The Fifth Lesson
Economy of motion, economy of pattern, meander and fail.
The Sixth Lesson
All is not as it seems. Greed comes in many forms... Greed will destroy you.
The Seventh Lesson
Each step on life's chain is small, yet each instant has meaning, each moment may contain a microcosm of the whole. Revel in the day to day, take up your Rod and Staff, walk the lands, be here now.
The Eighth Lesson
Complexity is relative, the simple may be obscured by the appearance of complexity. Each step you take may make the pattern more obvious, or less, choose carefully.
The Ninth Lesson
Through the Forest of Confusion, a single glimpse of the tree may be enough to illuminate the hidden meaning.
The Tenth Lesson
All is not as it seems. Choose carefully.
The Eleventh Lesson
Patience, and the lure, repeat....
The Twelfth Lesson
Parts of the whole are obvious, but the order is not certain.
