One   can   devote   his   time   only   to   three   entities:   service,   learning   or   vice.   Of   course,   vice   could   be   called   pleasure   and   be   divided   into   the   harmful   and   the   useful,   but   that   would   be   a   lie   and   a   guile.

5.3189.   AR AR

I   tell   you   to   be   diligent   because,   if   you   do   not   succeed   every   time,   it   is   no   big   deal.   Diligence   is   like   a   vector   of   movement   or   an   extended   arm   string.   If   you   generally   follow   the   direction,   minor   lapses   are   not   to   be   afraid   of.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3260.   AR AR

Real   sincerity   is   when   a   person   avoids   saying   what   he   does   not   think.   He   avoids   speaking   without   thinking.   When   a   person   speaks   without   thinking,   either   he   tells   a   lie   or   his   mind   is   sleeping.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3296.   AR AR

Rituals   and   ceremonies   demand   effortlessness   and   lightness.   Tension   and   effort   ruin   everything.   The   meaning   of   rituals   is   to   make   something   heavy   light,   not   the   reverse.   The   meaning   of   rituals   is   to   give,   not   to   take,   energy.   Rituals   are   useful   and   usefulness   is   joyful.   Without   joy,   there   is   no   realization   of   usefulness.   What’s   more,   effortlessness   points   to   the   victory   over   fear.   The   main   rationale   for   rituals   is   to   kill   fear.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3297.   AR AR

5.3401.   AR AR

Ascending   a   mountain   is   a   scarification   to   the   mountain   rather   than   the   victory   over   it.   By   sacrificing   himself   to   his   dream,   a   person   obtains   its   benevolence.

5.3403.   AR AR

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3414.   AR AR

The   essence   of   spiritual   beauty   is   to   hit   the   target,   not   the   very   center   of   the   target.   Precision   is   truth   and   approximation   is   lie,   yet   the   facets   of   precision   can   be   different.   A   sincere   and   virtuous   intention   has   more   truth   in   it   than   a   vain   lie.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3419.   AR AR

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3423.   AR AR

A   wise   one   finds   profit   in   love   because   love   is   the   source   of   energy   and   rituals.   A   person   stupid   in   love   loses   energy   because   he   does   not   stick   to   the   ritual   and   is   unreserved.   A   person   intelligent   in   love   seeks   energy   and   a   person   stupid   in   love   seeks   pleasure.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

               

5.3424.   AR AR

A   noble   man   is   humane   because   strength   has   mercy   on   weakness   and   strength   has   no   fear   in   it.   Where   there   is   no   fear,   there   is   no   anger   or   rancor   either.

Translate: lushchenko Marina

Cognition   is   attention   to   changes.   Attention   to   changes   is   necessary   to   have   enough   time   to   respond   the   other   way   round   while   keeping   the   balance.   Or   to   respond   in   such   a   way   as   to   trigger   growth   or   fruit-bearing.
