Fasting of the Heart

Directions for Fasting of the Heart

"Concentrate your will. 
Hear not with your ears, but with your mind; not with your mind, but with your spirit. 
Let your hearing stop with the ears, and let your mind stop with its images. 
Let your spirit, however, be like a blank, passively responsive to externals. 
In such open receptivity only can Tao abide. 
And that open receptivity is the fasting of the heart."
