A superior person cares for the well-being of all things. She does this by accepting responsibility for the energy she manifests, both actively and in the subtle realm. Looking at a tree, she sees not an isolated event but root, leaves, trunk, water, soil and sun: each event related to the others, and "tree" arising out of their relatedness. Looking at herself or another, she sees the same thing.
Trees and animals, humans and insects, flowers and birds: these are active images of the subtle energies that flow from the stars throughout the universe. Meeting and combining with each other and the elements of the earth, they give rise to all living things.
The superior person understands this, and understands that her own energies play a part in it. Understanding these things, she respects the earth as her mother, the heavens as her father, and all living things as her brothers and sisters.
Caring for them, she knows that she cares for herself. Giving to them, she knows that she gives to herself. At peace with them, she is always at peace with herself.

A Brief Review
Leo Quan move over! There's a new guy in town and he's gunnin for ya! Enter Rick Naimish and the radically new, Naimish Bridge, a light-weight, compact, well-designed, well-machined, custom replacement bass bridge that will make a believer out of you. Upon installing a few of them, I noticed an immediate improvement in the tone; a tighter-sounding, truer string response with noticeable attack, decay, and harmonic characteristics. This bridge seems to actually improve the timbre of the note, and is very forgiving of some harsh, metallic-sounding strings. The appearance and machining is impeccable, from the contouring of the saddle contact points to the radiusing of all corners and edges. With the pivoting saddles and allen screw intonation adjustments, repairpersons and musicians alike will enjoy the speed and ease of set-up. All-in-all, this is a very "musical" sounding bridge that packs good looks, accuracy, and sustain in a very practical package.

The Kingly Man
My Master said: That which acts on all and meddles in none is heaven...
The Kingly Man realizes this, hides it in his heart, grows boundless, wide-minded, draws all to himself. And so he lets the gold lie hidden in the mountain, leaves the pearl lying in the deep. Goods and possessions are no gain in his eyes, he stays far from wealth and honor. Long life is no ground for joy, nor early death for sorrow. Success is not for him to be proud of, failure is no shame. Had he all the world's power he would not hold it as his own. If he conquered everything he would not take it to himself.
His glory is in knowing that all things come together in One.
And life and death are equal.
From:The Way of Chuang Tzu by Thomas Merton
