Neiye - Verse 18
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
Enlarge your heart and be daring;
make your qi
magnanimous and broad.
With form at rest and unmoving,
you will be able to guard your oneness and discard a myriad burdens.
On seeing profit,
you will not be enticed.
On seeing danger, you will not be frightened.
With easy magnanimity you will be jen,
and alone, you will delight in your person.
This is called cloud-like qi,
for thoughts float in it as clouds in heaven.
