Do you imagine the universe is agitated?
Go into the desert at night
and look out at the stars.
This practice should answer the question.

The superior person settles her mind as
the universe settles the
stars in the sky.
By connecting her mind with the
subtle origin, she calms it.
Once calmed, it naturally expands, and
ultimately her mind becomes as
vast and immeasurable
as the night sky.
