351What are the things that prevent us from acquiring peace in the outer world? Our self-indulgence in the world of the body; our self-aggrandisement in the world of the vital; our self-doubt in the world of the mind; and our sense of self-insufficiency in the world of the heart.
What are the things that can inspire us to have peace in the outer world? Simplicity can inspire our body, humility can inspire our vital, sincerity can inspire our mind and purity can inspire our heart.
