When the student is ready

I just had my mind blown. For years now, I've only known the first half of this saying by Lao Tzu, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready, the teacher will disappear.”

This changes a lot, if not everything.

Hmmm, "...is truly ready the teacher will disappear." So, the (real) student seeks to know what (s)he truly desires and know what is taught...

@Rethots: Absolutely. Time to practise, live, and maybe even teach.
