The sooner you can become a peak in your own right,
the better. The valleys you create can then echo with
your true nature and resonate in response to other
peaks. It is easy to abdicate to others,
to just give up at the goading of the intellectual mind (1)
which simply compares and competes, and so divides;
which asserts with either
‘for’ or ‘against.’
Then the emotional mind (2) feels overwhelmed by
the achievements and ‘talents’ of others and withdraws.
It is self-cherishing and attention-seeking,
given to envy and self-doubt.
But if you close your worldly eyes and listen closely
to the universal mind (3), you are listening to the totality,
to the whole, to the transcendence, to the beyond.
The ‘that’ has no single urge to fight or react or assert
or doubt. It only responds like a valley echo,
and here there are no choices.
