one awakening, hold the mysteries

 

As you

help people and

respond to their potential,

it should all be clear and free. You mustn’t

roll around in the nest of weeds or play with your

spirit in the ghost cave. If the supposed teacher uses

contrived concepts of “mysteries” and “marvels” and “the

essence of truth”, if he cocks his eyebrows and puts a gleam

in his eye and cavorts around uttering apt sayings and thereby

binds the sons and daughters of other people’s families

with doctrines he claims are absolute realities, then

he is just one blind man leading a crowd of

blind  people — how can this produce

any genuine expedient

teaching?
