THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD give low-level satisfaction even if you see them, eat them, take them, acquire them, and make them your own. The level of the brain is low, and the level of thoughts is low and limited. Therefore, just as a nickel-silver pot gets quickly heated and quickly cooled, you [can] enjoy them only for a moment, only for a brief, extremely short instant. There is ‘limitation of the body.’ However, ‘the spirit’ has no limitation. It is limitless. ‘The body’ travels on foot about 100 ri a day. A hundred ri is 40,000 meters. ‘The spirit’ travels 100 ri in a second. Therefore, there is no comparison.
Just as you would draw nothing on a blank piece of paper and then draw on it when you have received an idea, you must empty out your thoughts completely and do things ‘only according to God’s Will.’ Asking for God’s Will while taking action according to your thoughts is not [doing things] ‘according to God’s Will.’
