PUTTING NAILS INTO THE BLUE SKY
Today CT happened to see someone who were
trying to put two of the nails into the blue sky.

One is: "GOD'ness in pure heart", and
the other is: "mundane carnal".

So, how do people work with these nails?

-They possibly will lay one eye on the "GOD'ness,"
and the other eye on the "mundane carnal",
and do not know which one they have to go by.
Therefore, they just stand still in confusion.

-They possibly will run back and for between the two,
don't know where or when they'll stop.

-They possibly will grasp one of the two tightly with hands.

-They forget the blue sky.
