Universal Power is a subtle but absolute power
inherent in the universe. The dance of Yang and Yin can be understood
as a complex and dynamic vibration whose changes arise
spontaneously. The changes are not haphazard - they flow like a song,
setting an underlying tone to the play of the
universe and establishing a principle by which events
are connected and have meaning.
Were there no other influences, the world would unfold in
perfect harmony with this song of Universal Power.
But the world abounds with competing influences,
our own voices among
them, and these can hide the underlying harmony. Universal
with such supreme modesty
as to have the lightest
powers. No power is softer. This guarantees that it can never be
corrupted, for no other power has the lightness of touch to manipulate
it, but it also means that it is overshadowed by every
competing power. Universal Power serves as
an omnipresent guide to harmony but never enforces that harmony.
By using our personal
judiciously we can avoid contributing to the clamour obscuring Universal Power.
By developing an extreme
delicacy of attention we can learn to perceive its song
and we can participate in its harmony through
an extreme delicacy of touch.
