                                                                   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.
