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
To quell anger nothing is better than the Poetry.
To dismiss cares, nothing is better than music.
To moderate joy, nothing is better than li.
To observe li, nothing is better than attentiveness.
To maintain attentiveness, nothing is better than tranquility.
Inwardly tranquil, outwardly attentive,
able to return to your nature:
thus will your nature be well stabilized.
