Neiye - Verse 13
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
Spirit-like, concentrate the qi, and the world of things is complete.
Can you concentrate?
Can you become one?
Can you know the outcomes of events without divining?
Can you halt?
Can you stop?
Can you grasp in it yourself and not seek it in others?
Then ponder yet again!
If you ponder and do not comprehend,
the spirits will make it comprehensible.
Yet it is not by the power of the spirits:
it is the utmost of the essential qi.
