Only Well-measured Practice Is the Middle Way

In spiritual practice, we shouldn't ask for too many results at a time, and we mustn't work too hard or be too sluggish. For personal practice, we must deeply practice just one Dharma method, instead of trying to be adept at many things in one go. In fact, once we have successfully practiced one method, we will be able to penetrate all others.
