A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on control, desires, existence, heaven, and mind

When the mind is disturbed, it is attracted by ten thousand things. With attraction, craving will arise. With craving, the desire to obtain things to satisfy craving will emerge. The mind that desires is rooted in earthly existence and is controlled by the pa-k'ua of Later Heaven.

Shui-ch'ing Tzu (between 1600 & 1911 -)
