take care of everyone


 

Men

and women

who wish to be aware of

the whole truth should adopt

the practices of the Integral Way.

These time-honored disciplines

calm the mind and bring one

into harmony with

all things.

 

The first

practice is the practice

of undiscriminating virtue: take care

of those who are deserving. Also, and equally,

take care of those who are not. When you extend

your virtue in all directions without

discriminating, your feet are

firmly planted on the path

that returns to

the Tao.

hold to what is simple

 

Give up

religiosity and knowledge,

and the people will benefit a hundredfold.

Discard morality and righteousness, and the

people will return to natural love. Abandon

shrewdness and profiteering, and

there won’t be any robbers

or thieves.

 

These are

external matters, however.

What is most important is what

happens within: look to what is

pure; hold to what is simple;

let go of self-interest;

temper your

desires.

Chapter 19

perceive the truth of the oneness

insight eye

 

Can

you dissolve

your ego? Can you

abandon the idea of self

and other? Can you relinquish

the notions of male and female, short

and long, life and death? Can you let go 

of all these dualities and embrace the

Tao without skepticism or panic?

If so, you can reach the heart 

of the Integral

Oneness.

 

Along the way,

avoid thinking of the

Oneness as unusual, exalted,

sublime, transcendental. Because

it is the Oneness, it is beyond all

that. It is simply the direct,

essential, and complete

truth.

wherever you are, constant clarity

Was8916545

 

Yongjia says,

“Without leaving wherever you are,

there is constant clarity.” No words come closer

to the truth than these. If you start seeking, then we know

that you are unable to see. Just cut off any duality between “wherever

you are” and “constant clarity”, and make yourself peaceful and

serene. Avoid concocting intellectual understanding

and seeking. As soon as you seek,

it is like grasping at

shadows.

when darkness reigns, maintain your inner light


 

This

is a time when

darkness and inferior energies

surround you. The image is that of the sun

completely swallowed by the earth. The only light

left is that inside your own heart, and you are

counseled to return to it, maintain it,

and quietly nourish

yourself with

it.

 

It is

in dark moments

that a correct attitude is most important.

If we fight against the darkness, we are swallowed by it and

suffer great misfortune. If we react to the lack of visible progress

with despair and negativity, we extinguish our own inner light

and block the aid of the Creative. If we try to persuade

others that they must return to the light,

we exhaust ourselves in

vain now.

 

In

a time such

as this is it wise to adopt

a stance of outer disengagement

and inner perseverance. Do not focus on

or interact with the negative influences around

you; this only strengthens their grip on you. Step

aside, yield, let go, allow people and events to pass

without attachment. Direct your attentions

inside to your inner light, your devotion

to what is right, your conversation

with the Higher

Power.

 

Progress

may be slow, but there

will indeed be progress. Remember

that much of the work of the Higher Power

is hidden from us, and that we enable and assist

it by remaining detached, accepting, and

reserved in the face of negative

influences.
