The Mystic Virtue

Can you govern your animal soul, hold to the One and never depart fromĀ it?
Can you throttle your breath, down to the softness of breath in a child?
Can you purify your mystic vision and wash it until it is spotless?
Can you love all your people, rule over the land without being known?
Can you be like a female, and passively open and shut heaven’s gates?
Can you keep clear in your mind the four quarters of earth and not
interfere?
Quicken them, feed them;
Quicken but do not possess them.
Act and be independent;
Be the chief but never the lord:
This describes the mystic virtue.
