Over some cabbage roll and peach juice, I asked a sage, “Taoism teaches me to accept everyone and cast aside my purist ways. Yet how can I do this if it’s in my nature to refuse to accept people’s flaws? I must accept myself as I accept others”.
He told me, “If you are happy with yourself and the decisions you make, then there is nothing to worry about”.
Then he took my bowl, washed it, and we played Warcraft III for eleven straight hours.
