live for your center, not your senses

 

The five

colors blind the eye.

The five tones deafen the ear.

The five flavors overwhelm

the palate.

 

Fancy things

get in the way of one’s growth.

Racing here and there, hunting for

this and that—good ways to

madden your mind,

that’s all.

 

Relinquish what is without.

Cultivate what is within.

Live for your center,

not your senses.

this heart sanctuary does exist


 

The place

that Solomon made

to worship in, called the Far Mosque,

is not built of earth and water and stone,

but of intention and wisdom and

mystical conversation and

compassionate

action.

 

Every

part of it is intelligent

and responsive to every other.

The carpet bows to the broom. The door

knocker and the door swing together

like musicians. This heart sanctuary

does exist, though it cannot

be described.

 

Solomon

goes there every morning

and gives guidance with words,

with musical harmonies, and in actions,

which are the deepest teaching. A prince

is just a conceit, until he does

something with his

generosity.

 

Jalal al-Din Rumi

detours and distractions


 

Not all

spiritual paths lead to

the Harmonious Oneness.

Indeed, most are detours and

distractions, nothing

more.

 

Why not

trust the plainness and

simplicity of the Integral Way?

Living with unconditional sincerity,

eradicating all duality, celebrating the

equality of things, your every

moment will be

in truth.

Hua hu Ching ☯️ Chapter 78


 

There are

many partial religions,

and then there is the Integral Way. 

Partial religions are desperate, clever, human

inventions; the Integral Way is a deep expression of the pure,

whole, universal mind. Partial religions rely on the hypnotic manipulation

of undeveloped minds; the Integral Way is founded on the free

transmission of the plain, natural, immutable truth.

It is a total reality, not an

occult practice. 

 

The Integral Way

eschews conceptual fanaticism,

extravagant living, fancy food, violent music.

They spoil the serenity of one’s mind and obstruct one’s

spiritual development. Renouncing what is fashionable and embracing

what is plain, honest, and virtuous, the Integral Way returns you

to the subtle essence of life. Adopt its practices and you

will become like they are: honest,

simple, true, virtuous,

whole. 

 

You see,

in partial pursuits,

one’s transformation is always

partial as well. But in integral self-cultivation,

it is possible to achieve a complete metamorphosis,

to transcend your emotional and biological

limitations and evolve to

a higher state of

being. 

 

By staying

out of the shadows and

following this simple path, you become

extraordinary, unfathomable, a being of profound

cosmic subtlety. You outlive time and space

by realizing the subtle truth

of the universe.
