    The Secret of Secrets, Vol 2


    CHAPTER 1


    A little bit of sky
    27 August 1978 am in Buddha Hall


    MASTER LU-TSU SAID: YOUR WORK WILL GRADUALLY BECOME CONCENTRATED AND
    MATURE, BUT BEFORE YOU REACH THE CONDITION IN WHICH YOU SIT LIKE A WITHERED
    TREE BEFORE A CLIFF, THERE ARE STILL MANY POSSIBILITIES OF ERROR WHICH IWOULD
    LIKE TO BRING TO YOUR SPECIAL ATTENTION. THESE CONDITIONS ARE RECOGNIZED
    ONLY WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO
    SPEAK OF THE MISTAKES AND THEN OF THE CONFIRMATORY SIGNS.
    WHEN ONE BEGINS TO CARRY OUT ONE’S DECISION, CARE MUST BE TAKEN SO
    THAT EVERYTHING CAN PROCEED IN A COMFORTABLE, RELAXED MANNER. TOO MUCH
    MUST NOT BE DEMANDED OF THE HEART. ONE MUST BE CAREFUL THAT, QUITE
    AUTOMATICALLY, HEART AND ENERGY ARE COORDINATED. ONLY THEN CAN A STATE OF
    QUIETNESS BE ATTAINED. DURING THIS QUIET STATE THE RIGHT CONDITIONS AND THE
    RIGHT SPACE MUST BE PROVIDED. ONE MUST NOT SIT DOWN (TO MEDITATE) IN THE
    MIDST OF FRIVOLOUS AFFAIRS. THAT IS TO SAY, THE MIND MUST BE FREE OF VAIN
    PREOCCUPATIONS. ALL ENTANGLEMENTS MUST BE PUT ASIDE; ONE MUST BE DETACHED
    AND INDEPENDENT. NOR MUST THE THOUGHTS BE CONCENTRATED UPON THE RIGHT
    PROCEDURE. THIS DANGER ARISES IF TOO MUCH TROUBLE IS TAKEN. I DO NOT MEAN
    THAT NO TROUBLE IS TO BE TAKEN, BUT THE CORRECT WAY LIES IN KEEPING EQUAL
    DISTANCE BETWEEN BEING AND NOT BEING. IF ONE CAN ATTAIN PURPOSELESSNESS
    THROUGH PURPOSE, THEN THE THING HAS BEEN GRASPED. NOWONE CAN LET ONESELF

    GO, DETACHED AND WITHOUT CONFUSION, IN AN INDEPENDENT WAY.
    FURTHERMORE, ONE MUST NOT FALL VICTIM TO THE ENSNARING WORLD. THE
    ENSNARING WORLD IS WHERE THE FIVE KINDS OF DARK DEMONS DISPORT
    THEMSELVES. THIS IS THE CASE, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN, AFTER FIXATION, ONE HAS
    CHIEFLY THOUGHTS OF DRY WOOD AND DEAD ASHES, AND FEW THOUGHTS OF THE
    BRIGHT SPRING ON THE GREAT EARTH. IN THIS WAY ONE SINKS INTO THE WORLD OF
    THE DARK. THE ENERGY IS COLD THERE, BREATHING IS ROUGH, AND MANY IMAGES
    OF COLDNESS AND DECAY PRESENT THEMSELVES. IF ONE TARRIES THERE LONG ONE
    ENTERS THE WORLD OF PLANTS AND STONES.

    NOR MUST A MAN BE LED ASTRAY BY THE TEN THOUSAND ENSNAREMENTS. THIS
    HAPPENS IF, AFTER THE QUIET STATE HAS BEGUN, ONE AFTER ANOTHER ALL SORTS
    OF TIES SUDDENLY APPEAR. ONE WANTS TO BREAK THROUGH THEM AND CANNOT; ONE
    FOLLOWS THEM, AND FEELS AS IF RELIEVED BY THIS. THIS MEANS THE MASTER HAS
    BECOME THE SERVANT. IF A MAN TARRIES IN THIS STAGE LONG HE ENTERS THE WORLD
    OF ILLUSORY DESIRES.

    AT BEST, ONE FINDS ONESELF IN HEAVEN, AT THE WORST, AMONG THE FOX-SPIRITS.
    SUCH A FOX-SPIRIT, IT IS TRUE, MAY BE ABLE TO ROAM IN THE FAMOUS MOUNTAINS
    ENJOYING THE WIND AND THE MOON, THE FLOWERS AND FRUITS, AND TAKING HIS
    PLEASURE IN THE CORAL TREES AND JEWELLED GRASS. BUT AFTER HAVING DONE THIS,
    HIS REWARD IS OVER AND HE IS BORN AGAIN INTO THE WORLD OF TURMOIL
