If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

Harmony

                                                                       HARMONY

A sealed glass vessel will open only in response to sympathetic vibration.  This is already known, but the coordination of the harmony of reverberation with all its astonishing diversity and variation is not sufficiently considered.  Is it not strange that the same glass will resound either to glass or metal or wood, and to the most varied bodies?  Such harmonization of reverberation reminds one once again of the multiplicity of coordinations of combinations.  This example is useful for human leaders.  Is not the greatest harm inflicted by monotony, which penetrates into all human strata?  The law is one, but its vibrations are as varied as the Universe is multifarious.

One must rejoice at this multiformity, for precisely it gives the path to refinement.  What would become of the human heart if it reverberated to only one note?  Hence, let all leaders remember about multiformity and diversity.

Sutra 7

                                                                   SUTRA 7

The heart is the focal point, but of all it is least egocentric.  Not egoism dwells in the heart, but pan-humanity.  Only reason enshrouds the heart with a cobweb of egocentricity.   Mercy is measured not so much by the so-called good actions, the cause of which can be too varied, but by the inmost kindliness; it kindles the light which shines in the darkness.  Thus, the heart is verily an international organ.  If we accept light as the symbol of the aura, then its parent will be the heart.  How necessary it is to learn to feel one's heart not as one's own, but as the universal one.Only through this sensation can one liberate oneself from egoism, safeguarding the individuality of accumulations.  It is difficult to contain individuality with universal containment, but not vainly is the magnet of the heart connected with the Chalice. One can understand how the heart radiates a special light, which is refracted in every way by the nerve substance.   For the crystal of psychic energy can be variedly tinted.
