49. The Master said, “In anything, if there is an attractive force inside, energies outside will respond. Drinking guests gather at a tavern because of the attractive force of liquor. People gather around a virtuous person because of the attractive force of virtue. If a practitioner cultivates well the formless mind practice, then the formless power of the mind is aroused, enabling one to attract and apply the great energy of the boundless universe. This is what is referred as ‘the great authority of the triple world.’”
