- Koan: The old pond, a jumping frog - plop!
- Every moment can be used to gain insight and from that calm arises.
- Endurance is courage over time. Instead of screwing up your resolve to a sword-point, hunker down for the long siege. Deal with the problems at hand while getting on with other aspects of your life, and stay cheerful, putting others' well-being first. Stick at it: your example will be inspiring to all.
