IC : 52.  To achieve a quiet heart…  When a man has thus become calm, he may turn to the outside world. He no longer sees in it the struggle and tumult of individual beings, and therefore he has that true peace of mind which is needed for understanding the great laws of the universe and for acting in harmony with them. Whoever acts from these deep levels makes no mistakes.
Struggle, power, domination, the suffering of man…  is the  higher being removed from such realities…  choosing another reality, another world?
Can we achieve perfection – make no mistakes?  Utter not a syllable to be misunderstood, dismissed,  or find offense?
Quiet, stillness, nothingness comes from the deeper level.  Might one  find that silence, stillness, to be empty is that deeper calm to neutralize competition power and domination .
from self-restraint comes discernment
