Many people pass in front of a castle. Inside, there is a party. Many pass in front of it. The doors are open and many don’t go in, they’d rather stay on the street. And for knowing this, people leave the castle doors open.
If we analyze why people don’t go in, we get to a great secret, and, since it’s a secret, you can’t say why people don’t go into the castle.
Some people talk, others listen; some people write, others read. However, neither the one who talks nor the one who writes manages to transmit what they said or wrote. Maybe this means that it’s not always of use to read what was written, or hear what was said.
The people who walk on the street, who pass by the castle whose doors are open, are those who read and hear. And the fact of reading what is written and hearing what was said doesn’t necessarily mean that the message was received by the sight and hearing organs. So, those who walk on the street, also don’t necessarily see that there is a party in the castle and that its doors are open. That is why they don’t go in
(…) On the surface is the deep, and in the deep, is the surface. It’s a matter of inversion. But neither on the surface nor in the deep is contained the Truth: it’s in the balance. It is the middle point.
That is why one day there won’t be beautiful and ugly: there will be more beautiful, more beautiful, more beautiful… infinitely more beautiful; and, on the other side, less beautiful, less beautiful… infinitely less beautiful. And the words that give a reason of being to the analogy of opposites will disappear from the minds of those who will inhabit the world of balance. On that day, a flower will always be a flower, and everything will be Peace, corollary of the point where you are.
Travel the distance and know to stop exactly at the point of balance.
