In the Midst of the World


One with wholeness of virtue
has an unconditioned mind.
He regards the mind of all being
as his own mind.
He is kind to the kind.
He is also kind to the unkind,
for the subtle nature of the universe is kind.
He is faithful to the faithful.
He is also faithful to the unfaithful.
for the integral virtue of the universe is undeceiving.

In the midst of the world,
he dissolves all minds into harmonious Oneness.
All people strain their eyes and ears for excitement.
One of deep virtue brings all people back
to their childlike-heartedness.
