Do you imagine the universe is agitated? Go into the desert at night and took out at the stars.
This practice should answer the question.
The superior person settles her mind as the universe settles the stars in the sky.
By connecting her mind with the subtle origin, she calms it.
Once calmed, it naturally expands,
and ultimately her mind becomes as vast and immeasurable as the night sky.
With all this talking, what has been said?
The subtle truth can be pointed at with words,
but it can’t be contained by them.
Take time to listen to what is said without words,
to obey the law too subtle to be written,
to worship the unnameable and to embrace the unformed.
Love your life.
Trust the Tao.
Make love with the invisible subtle origin of the universe,
and you will give yourself everything you need.
You won’t have to hide away forever in spiritual retreats.
You can be a gentle, contemplative hermit right here in the middle of everything,
thoroughly sustained and rewarded by your integral practices.
Encouraging others, giving freely to all,
awakening and purifying the world with each movement and action,
you’ll ascend to the divine realm in broad daylight.
