22. The Master said, “If you can keep your mind empty like the empty sky, you can break out of ascending and descending through the cycle of rebirth. If you base yourself on this empty mind, you will always be progressing. If you stay removed from signs by basing yourself on this empty mind, then you will always be endowed with grace. Always abandon any signs that you have either bestowed grace on or been harmed by others, and always reflect on the deficiencies in your own virtue.”
