' Hua Hu Ching '

78. There are many partial religions, and then there is the
Integral Way.
Partial religions are desperate, clever, human
inventions; the Integral Way is a deep expression of
the pure, whole, universal mind.
Partial religions rely on the hypnotic manipulation of
undeveloped minds; the Integral Way is founded on
the free transmission of the plain, natural,
immutable truth.
It is a total reality, not an occult practice.

The Integral Way eschews conceptual fanaticism,
extravagant living, fancy food, violent music.
They spoil the serenity of one's mind and obstruct
one's spiritual development.
Renouncing what is fashionable and embracing what is
plain, honest, and virtuous, the Integral Way
returns you to the subtle essence of life.
Adopt its practices and you will become like they are:
honest, simple, true, virtuous, whole.

You see, in partial pursuits, one's transformation is
always partial as well.
But in integral self-cultivation, it is possible to achieve
a complete metamorphosis, to transcend your
emotional and biological limitations and evolve to a
higher state of being.

By staying out of the shadows and following this
simple path, you become extraordinary,
unfathomable, a being of profound cosmic subtlety.

You outlive time and space by realizing the subtle
truth of the universe.
