Let the words point you in a direction: you make the trip yourself.



Do not allow the words to hold back your understanding.  As words, they are inadequate...  Remember that this is to be your own experience. Let the words point you in a direction: you make the trip yourself.

- Introduction to The Wind Book, The Book of Five Rings, Bantam Edition



Any "learning to do" book should have a variation of this in the introduction.  This certainly includes Unschooling Rules. And, I suppose, any school would do worse than to have this as their philosophy.

  1. I can only find the Shambhala edition, are you referring to the book by Miyamoto? I can't find it under "The Wind Book" at our library at all. Is it the same thing you're referring to?

  2. Hi Kathryn,

    The quote is from page 89 of The Book of Five Rings (Amazon link).
