"Within each human breast shines two mystic hearts, one hid subtly within the other. The outer one loves and desires the beauties of the outer world, and in obtaining them is led into happiness and song; and in losing them, into grief and lamentation.
But the inner heart is a secret heart. It gazes with unbroken rapture into the Great Mystery that is the soul's true desire. Gaining or losing do not disturb this gaze. All things are perceived in their true nature, and living is delivered from all limitation."
