Neiye - Verse 07
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Extract from the Guanzi (管子) : THE INNER ENTERPRISE (Neiye內業) - translation by Robert Eno
If the form is not balanced, the force of virtue will not come.
If the center is not tranquil, the heart will not be regulated.
When a balanced form controls the force of virtue
then the ren of heaven and the righteousness of earth
will come spontaneously as a torrent.
The polar limit of spirit
-like brilliance shines in the understanding.
The central rightness of the world of things is flawlessly preserved.
Not letting things disrupt the senses;
not letting the senses disrupt the heart – such is called inner grasping
