"The Tao never does anything,

yet through it all things are done.

The Master doesn't try to be powerful,

thus he is truly powerful.

The ordinary man keeps reaching

for power,

thus, he never has enough.

The Master does nothing,

yet he leaves nothing undone.

The ordinary man is always doing

things, yet many more are left

to be done.

The kind man does something,

yet something remains undone.

The just man does something,yet he leaves many things

to be done.

The moral man does something,

and when no-one responds,

he rolls up his sleeves and uses force.

When the Tao is lost,

there is goodness.

When goodness is lost,

there is morality.

When morality is lost,there is ritual.

Ritual is the husk of true faith,

the beginning of chaos.

Therefore, the Master concerns himself

with the depths and not the surface,

with the fruit and not the flower.

He has no will of his own.

He dwells in reality,

and lets all illusions go."

~ Lao Tzu

Yes, Linda. As Isis says, 

"All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals" ;)

So that when we do rituals of any kind, without true love and pleasure as essential ingredients, it is an empty shell and worth nothing..
