The Master's Journey

Masters do not become great by practising a style, or by purchasing knowledge, or by self-promotion.
Instead, they practise an art, develop a pedagogy, and transcend their egos.

Many modern schools market "a style" to students who want paint-by-numbers instruction, simplistic knowledge, and self-validation.

The best teachers I know are those who seek to liberate their students from the restrictions of style, from the limits of knowledge, and from delusions of self.
