Contemplation – Who is Master?

Above Grassmere in Lake District1

First establish yourself in the Way,
Then teach,
And so defeat sorrow.

To straighten the crooked
You must first do a harder thing –
Straighten yourself.

You are your only master.
Who else?

Subdue yourself,
And discover your master.
