The Circle

A circle symbolizes perfection. In The Three-Fold Path, we strive to achieve a perfect balance between ethics and etiquette, experience and practical skills, and personal mastery. The circle describes The Three-Fold Path as a continuous process. There is no beginning and no end. There is no time when even a master of The Three-Fold Path will suddenly realize he has no more to achieve, no more to learn, no more room for growth. An individual who believes he has already attained perfection eliminates the possibility of any future evolution. It is the enthusiasm to keep exploring the mysteries of this world and the willingness to learn new ways to explore it that define mastery. Mastery is attained, not by seeking a sense of completion, but by forever embodying the openness and beauty of a beginner. Mastery is not an ending. It is the pursuit of the infinite possibilities and wonder of the future.
