Chapter 47. Looking far
Human can know the world without leaving his own house.
Through his own windows he may see the high Tao.
The farther he goes, the less chance he stands of finding.
That is why a wise one knows and recognizes without traveling, names beings without seeing and completes everything without action.¹
- Mr. Ervast: “Deep experience, because the life of the spirit is not in doing but being.”
