Rules and Masters

The following applies to many disciplines:

Rules are for apprentices so that they don’t stumble that hard.

A master doesn’t need rules.
A master will sometimes break the rules, and it leads to good results.

In fact, masters (or their disciples) write the rules.
But masters are aware that their rules are just a crude approximation of their wisdom.
(Disciples are not necessarily aware of that.)

These words came to me during my morning meditation.
