3) The Loving Union of Your Heart and Mind
"The Way is inclusive, not exclusive. Your heart and mind are meant to be lovers, not enemies. Like Heaven and Earth, they wish only to live as equals in harmony within you. It's their kind wisdom together, the sublime flow of their discerning devotion, that creates the loving world where you--the true you-- can thrive."
