(I • The Celestial Mind – 7)
The golden flower is light. What color is light? It is symbolized by the golden flower … This is the absolutely unified real energy of celestial immortals…
(ibid – 10)
… You should … practice diligently; it would be too bad if you wasted time. If you do not practice for a day, then you are a ghost for a day; if you do practice for a single breath, then you are a realized immortal for a breath. Work on this.
(XIII • Song to Inspire the World – 22)
You suppose that attainment is possible in quietude but lost in activity; you do not realize that the reason for loss through activity is because nothing is attained through stillness. When you attain nothing in quietude or lose anything through activity, in either case you have not yet reached the Way.
