An old Zen proverb
states: "When the student is ready the master appears
". It implies that it is a student's task to get ready. But it also implies that the master needs to be ready to teach.
In traditional craftsmanship the transition from journeyman to master is accompanied with the right and pledge to take on apprentices. So mastery must include teaching to lay the foundation for the next level
: "poor is a pupil that does not surpass his master
". After all it is "Purpose, Autonomy and Mastery
" what motivates us
Have an nice weekend!
