Those that have a true thirst for Thatness are
wont to not follow the million-and-one things.
When the heart rises, the million-and-one things arise too.
When the heart is Stilled,
the manifold things cease.
And when the heart does not rise,
the million-and-one things are without blame.
In the world and beyond the world,
neither the enlightened nor the Truth
nor do they disappear.
Though different phenomena
and countless scriptures and books exist,
they are only as names and words,
sentences and catch phrases
to attract little children;
Or they are just expedient remedies
for societal diseases and for keeping
the human intelligence in check.
Hence, the Ultimate is ever superficially
revealed as names and phrases.
