Turn Your Senses Inward

Constantly looking outward,
Exhausts the eyes and liver.

Over-reaching to listen,
Exhausts the ears and kidneys.

Eating too much numbs the tongue,
And burdens the stomach and spleen.

Compulsive thinking of past and future
Will drive a person crazy.

An unquenchable desire for more
Will break the heart.

Therefore, the alchemist turns his senses inward.
He feels the ebb and flow of creation
But maintains his center.
