Sounds like the pail wasn't being properly maintained.
My taoist goal is to become goaless.
Living without past or future,
until such things require my attention.
my golfing goal is
to swear less,
perform better at the lie.
First you get an intention or goal to cultivate Tao , say paying attention to your dantian so that qi arisen there leads you to Tao( 有心修道) .
Then, you notice that cultivate qi /tao in a mindless / no-intentional way is better ( 修道無心) .
Finally you understand that Tao is , in fact, no need to cultivate (道不用修)
If you find the above stuff no bullshits , and somewhat methodologically sensible to you , then it is Great ! If you find the above -said is philosophically sensible to you, then it is NOT so great , study more.
