the governing aspect

::

::

If you

correct your mind, the

rest of your life will fall into place.

This is true because the mind is the governing

aspect of a human life. If the river flows

clearly and cleanly through the

proper channel, all will

be well along its

banks.

The

Integral Way

depends on decreasing, not increasing;

to correct your mind, rely on not-doing. Stop thinking

and clinging to complications; keep your mind detached and whole.

Eliminate mental muddiness and obscurity; keep your mind

crystal clear. Avoid daydreaming and allow your

pure original insight to emerge.

Quiet your emotions

and abide in

serenity.

Don’t

go crazy with the

worship of idols, images, and ideas;

this is like putting a new head on top of the head

you already have. Remember: if you can

cease all restless activity, your

integral nature will

appear.

 

from Lao Tzu, Brian Walker, Hua hu Ching, Chapter 45
