45) T-67 Tank The T67 is an American tier 5 turreted tank destroyer. Development
started in the spring of 1942. After trials in the fall of 1942, the decision was
made to replace the 57-mm gun with a 75-mm gun. Two prototypes were
manufactured. Successful gunnery trials showed that the T67 GMC could be
used for a more powerful gun. It was installed in late November of 1942.
To compensate for increased mass, suspension was reinforced. Trials showed
that use of a more powerful gun had little impact on precision of fire & mobility.
It saw neither mass production nor service. Photo Source: tankarchives.blogspot.com

River emerges from the mountains. John Combs writes about his enthusiasm
for Alaskan railroads. Monday June 16, 2014: Locomotive #67 was blowing
its whistle as we entered the park so I grabbed Terry's hand and headed for
the depot to purchase tickets. The train ride took us completely around the
park while an on-board guide dressed in period clothing pointed out
all the historic attractions. The Friends of the Tanana Valley Railroad had
lovingly restored it & placed it back into operation. Photo Source: alaskarails.org

Corporation. Although the Arrow name was used for its first custom chassis
which debuted in 1979, the company has no affiliation with George N. Pierce's
famous Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company of Buffalo, NY, which operated
from 1901 to 1938. However, Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company coincidentally
supplied 8- and 12-cylinder engines to Seagrave for use in their fire apparatus.

67 in Mythology & History

Mansion of Happiness board game
with spiral goal of 67 at the center
The number 67 played a role in the Mansion of Happiness,
America's very first children's board game (1843). The game
was manufactured by the W. & S.B. Ives Company, a stationer
out of Salem, Massachusetts. Although the Puritan culture
of the day frowned upon children wasting time with frivolous
activities, Mansion of Happiness proved acceptable because
of its moralistic overtones. Invented by clergyman's daughter
Anne Abbott, the game encouraged good deeds as players
worked their pieces through an inward spiral. Squares
labeled charity, industry, & humanity represented rewards,
with drunkenness & ingratitude were penalities. Objective
of the game was to reach the Mansion of Happiness in the
center of the board, square number 67.

57) At Age 67:
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian polymath of the Renaissance, whose areas of interest
included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature,
anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography. Considered one of the greatest
painters of all time. Also credited with inventions of the parachute, helicopter and tank, he epitomised
the Renaissance humanist ideal. Just before dying in France at age 67 (1519), he wrote about creativity
and life
: "See: one's hopes and wishes to return to one's homeland and origin— they are just as moths
trying to reach the light. And the man who is looking forward with joyful curiosity to the new spring,
and the new summer, and always new months and new years— and even if the time he is longing
forever comes, it will always seem to him to be too late— he does not notice that his longing carries
within it the germs of his own death. But this longing is the quintessence, the spirit of the elements,
which through the soul is enclosed in the human body and which craves for return to its source. You
must know that this very yearning is the quintessence of life, the handmaid of Nature, and that Man
is a model of the world." (Photo Source: commons.wikimedia.org)
Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was a British scientist who contributed to the study
of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles
underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis. His book
The Various Forces of Matter and their Relations to Each Other (1859) written at age 67,
covered topics on force of gravitation, cohesion & chemical affinity, heat, magnetism
& electricity, correlation of physical forces, lighthouse illumination, electric light.
Albert Einstein kept a picture of Faraday on his study wall, alongside pictures of
Isaac Newton and James Clerk Maxwell. Physicist Ernest Rutherford said "there
is no honour too great to pay to the memory of Faraday, one of the greatest
scientific discoverers of all time." (Photo Source: commons.wikimedia.org)
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was a Russian writer, regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time.
Best known for the novels War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877), often cited as pinnacles
of realist fiction. Tolstoy has his first bicycle lesson (March 1895) at age 67. The machine is a gift
from the Moscow Society of Velocipede-Lovers, and Tolstoy quickly gains skill at this new activity.
He finds tht cycling gives him a sense of boyish pleasure. Another advantage is that scientists have
recently proved it to be good exercise. However, Tolstoy's secretary & disciple, Vladimir Chertkov, 41,
feels that such a frivolous pursuit is not consistent with Tolstoy's current position as a world leader
of morality (Jeremy Baker, pp. 442-443). Note: Surprised to find in Tolstoy's Diary (March 15, 1884):
"My good moral condition I ascribe to reading Confucius, and especially Lao Tzu. I must complete
a cycle of reading for myself: Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Pascal, the Gospels.
That is something everybody should do with too." It's interesting the authors Tolstoy selected
had cosmic consciousness, something Tolstoy also have experienced. (Photo Source: wikipedia.org)
Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928) was a British political activist and leader of the British
suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. She opens an English
tea shop (1925) at age 67 at Juan-les-Pins, in the South of France, but it stays open for
only a few months. In 1903, Pankhurst founded the Women's Social & Political Union,
WSPU, an all-women suffrage advocacy organisation dedicated to "deeds, not words".
In 1926 Pankhurst joined the Conservative Party. She died on June 14, 1928, only weeks
before Conservative government's Representation of the People Act (1928) extended
the vote to all women over 21 years of age on July 2, 1928. She was commemorated
two years later with a statue in Victoria Tower Gardens, next to Houses of Parliament.

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis,
a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a
psychoanalyst. Freud lived and worked in Vienna, practicing there in 1886. In 1938 Freud
left Austria to escape the Nazis. He died in exile in the United Kingdom in 1939. Freud
proposed that the human psyche could be divided into three parts: Id, ego and super-ego.
Freud discussed this model in his 1920 essay "Beyond the Pleasure Principle", and fully
elaborated upon it in The Ego and the Id (1923) at age 67. The id is the completely
unconscious, impulsive, childlike portion of the psyche that operates on the
"pleasure principle" and is the source of basic impulses and drives; it seeks
immediate pleasure and gratification. (Photo Source: commons.wikimedia.org)
Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970) was a French general and statesman who led the French Resistance
against Nazi Germany in World War II and chaired Provisional Government of French Republic
from 1944 to 1946 in order to reestablish democracy in France. In 1958, he came out of retirement
at age 67 when appointed Prime Minister of France by President René Coty. During the failure
of the war in Algeria, de Gaulle offers to be head of government, if he can have a free hand to
promote a new constitution which would centralize power in the presidency. De Gaulle wins
a refrendum on the constitution, and himself becomes President. In his late 60s, he resolves
the war in Algeria. In his early 70s, he pursues a new and vigorous foreign policy; and at 77,
he successfuly rides out the riots of 1968. At 78, he resigns as President, and he dies at 79,
in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises. (Photo Source: newworldencyclopedia.org)

69) 67 Rue de Seine is Galerie L'Amour de L'Art in Paris. (Photo Source: yelp.com)
Founded in 1997, it celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017. It's an inviting place,
L'Amour de l'Art gallery, nestled into the rue de Seine, amidst the left bank's
gallery row. Its name, meaning "the Love of Art", befits it for her gallery owner,
Marie Borel, passionately defends a certain number of artistic values that reflect
her ceaseless quest for authenticity. A refined and tranquil decor with a most
inviting period sofa offers a picture perfect art deco backdrop to exhibit artists
that she represents and promotes, among them Clauzade and Leblebici. Their
works tastefully juxtapose the bronze statues of Anne Itzykson and Jane Deste.
A work by Gustav Klimt in the window readily draws you into the gallery as
does its name, "L'Amour de l'Art" taken from the title of a celebrated novel by
French academician Jean Dutourd, friend & spiritual champion of the gallery.
70) 67th Floor Cloud Club of the Chrysler Building
was a lunch club that occupied the 66th, 67th, and 68th floors of the
Chrysler Building in New York City. At one time it was the highest
lunch club in the world. Opened in 1930 and closed in 1979. Main
dining room, on the 67th floor, was located on the club's south side
& had a capacity of 30 people. North wall had a mural of Manhattan.
The room was decorated with etched glass sconces & granite columns.
The room had a view of New York City. The vaulted ceiling, in a
Cathedral style, had a cloud mural. McGrath described it as having
"a futuristic, Fritz Lang sort of look". A Renaissance-style staircase in marble and bronze connected
the dining room with the 66th floor. Edwin McDowell wrote a New York Times article (4-11-2000)
"Reviving High Life, 67 Floors Up; Chrysler Building Redoes the Cloud Club's Old Space".

71) Habitat 67 is a model community and housing complex in Montreal,
Quebec, Canada, designed by Israeli/Canadian architect Moshe Safdie.
Originally conceived as his master's thesis in architecture at McGill
University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World's Fair
(April-October 1967). It is located at 2600 Avenue Pierre-Dupuy on
the Marc-Drouin Quay next to the Saint Lawrence River. Habitat 67
is widely considered an architectural landmark and one of the most
recognizable & spectacular buildings in both Montreal and Canada.
In 2017, Canada Post issued a commemorative stamp for the 50th
anniversary of Expo 67 featuring the structure. Jennie Xie's article (5-12-2015) "Is the World Ready
for a Habitat 67 Resurgence?" tells about Moshe Safdie's Sky Habitat in Singapore that resembles
his Montreal building. (Photo Source: commons.wikimedia.org)
Stanford Bronze Plaque 67 is on the ground 67 yards to the right
of Stanford University's Memorial Church. It is in front of the archway
between Buildings 60 & 70. The plaque is dedicated to Class of 1967.
First graduating class at Stanford was 1892. In 1980, Stanford Provost
Don Kennedy strolled around the Inner Quad and calculated that it
would take 512 years for the bronze class plaques embedded in the
walkways to circle the entire area ending with the Class of 2403.

67 in Art, Books, Music, & Films

Woodblock Print #67 from 100 Views of Edo
"Sakasai Ferry" (1857)
by Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858), Brooklyn Museum
Hiroshige's Woodblock #67 inspired this haiku:
    Mountains in background,
    huts & pines by river bank—
    Ah! five snowy egrets.
The birds that dominate this scene in the swampy delta area
around the village of Sakasai east of Edo have been accorded
special attention, with their wing patterns executed in delicate
karazuri embossing. Judging from the bushy crests & yellow bills,
the birds are Chinese egrets— a species only rarely seen in the
summer in Japan. Far more common was the little egret, with
no crest and a black bill. The artist naturally preferred the more
decorative species, whether it was found in the place or not.

75) Johann Sebastian Bach's Cantata 67 Halt im Gedächtnis Jesum Christ (Keep Jesus Christ in mind),
BWV 67 is a church cantata by J.S. Bach. He composed it in Leipzig for Quasimodogeniti, first
Sunday after Easter, and first performed it on 16 April 1724. Based on the prescribed gospel of
the appearance of Jesus to the Disciples. He places Nikolaus Herman's Easter hymn in the centre
of the cantata, repeats the line "Peace be with you" several times. Bach structured the work in
seven movements, arranged in symmetry around the central chorale, and scored it for three solo
voices, a four-part choir and a Baroque instrumental ensemble of a slide horn for hymn tunes,
lauto traverso, two oboes d'amore, strings and basso continuo. Besides unusual central chorale,
cantata contains a dramatic scene with Jesus repeating "Peace be with you" against the enemies.

76) Joseph Haydn's Symphony 67 in F major, Hoboken I/67, was composed by 1779. The Haydn
scholar H. C. Robbins Landon calls this work "one of the most boldly original symphonies of
this period." The work is scored for two oboes, two bassoons, two horns and strings. There
are four movements: Presto, Adagio B major, Menuetto & Trio, Finale: Allegro di motto,
Adagio e cantabile, Allegro di motto. This is the only symphony where Haydn opens in
fast 6/8 time without a slow introduction. At the end of the second movement, the entire
string section is directed to play col legno dell'arco (with the wood of the bow). The closing
Allegro di molto departs from the standard finale form. It features its own internal Adagio
e cantabile slow movement. (YouTube: Christopher Hogwood). Photo Source: (amazon.com)
77) Car 67 (1978) is a pop song by "Driver 67" that appeared in UK Singles Chart in December 1978.
It was written by Paul Phillips & Pete Zorn and was sung by Phillips. Song is a ballad revolving
around a cab driver who had split up with his girlfriend the previous day and how he is refusing
to make a particular pick-up at 83 Royal Gardens (the passenger, unbeknownst to the controller,
is the woman in question). The song is arranged as the taxi driver singing the lyrics, interspersed
with the voice of the taxi controller. The taxi controller has a distinctive West Midlands accent.
It was in the UK Singles Chart for twelve weeks, reaching a high of Number 7 in February 1979.

78) "Old 67" is a Elton John song from his album The Captain and the Kid (2006). The 4-minutes song
is the fourth on Side 2 of the album. Lyrics: "Hey how about this / A little conversation tonight /
Thinking aloud how we struggled to find / Our place in the dizzy heights // Don't often do this /
We never really get the chance / Nearly froze to death on Oxford Street / Now we're sitting in
the South of France // Talking through the evening It's good to shoot the breeze Just you and me
on a balcony And cicadas singing in the trees // [Chorus:} Old '67 what a time it was /
What a time of innocence, what a time we've lost / Raise a glass and have a laugh,
have a laugh or two / Here's to old '67 and an older me and you"

79) Questions 67 and 68 is a 1969 song written by Robert Lamm for the rock band Chicago.
It was their first single release. Lead vocals are shared by Lamm and Peter Cetera.
The questions in "Questions 67 and 68" address the nature of a romantic relationship
Lamm had during 1967 and 1968. Lyrics include the title phrase only as the last words.
Released in July 1969, the song peaked at No. 71 on US Billboard Hot 100. It was edited
to a more radio-friendly length & was re-released in September 1971, climbing to No. 24
on Billboard and No. 13 on Cash Box. Lyrics: "Can this feeling that we have together /
Oooh, Suddenly exist between / Did this meeting of our minds together / Oooh, Happen just today,
somewhere // Yes it does now baby // Questions 67 and 68"

Bob Kuechenberg (b. October 14, 1947) is a former NFL guard for Miami Dolphins for 14 seasons (1970-1983). Call him the
invisible man. But don't underestimate Kuechenberg's impact on Miami's success when they had an amazing .706 winning
percentage & recorded their perfect 1972 season. Coach Don Shula claims the man wearing number 67 "contributed more
to our winning than anyone else." He played in 6 Pro Bowls in late 1970s & early 1980s. Selected as one of top 15 finalists
for the Pro Football Hall of Fame (2002-2006), but missed the cut. Inducted into Miami Dolphin's Honor Roll on 12-15-1995.

1964-1973 professional career with New York Jets. In preparation for Super Bowl III (1969), Jets coach Weeb Ewbank moved
Herman from right guard to right tackle to defend against Baltimore Colts' defensive lineman Bubba Smith. Herman's ability
to neutralize Bubba Smith's pass rush enabled Joe Namath to enjoy a solid game passing, hitting on 17 of 28 passes. It also
helped open running lanes for Jet fullback Matt Snell, who rushed for 121 yards as the Jets beat heavily favored Colts 16-7.
Russell Maryland (b. March 22, 1969) is a former professional American football player. Played defensive tackle for 10 seasons
for Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders & Green Bay Packers of the NFL. Drafted by Cowboys first overall in 1991 NFL Draft.
Maryland started as a rookie defensive tackle & from the beginning showed the relentless motor & effort that he would be
known for. He was especially stout against the run and helped the team win three Super Bowls (XXVII, XXVIII, XXX).
Reggie McKenzie (b. July 27, 1950) is a former American football player. McKenzie played professional football in the NFL
as left guard for the Buffalo Bills from 1972 to 1982. Selected as a first-team All-NFL player in 1973 and second team in 1974,
McKenzie was a key player on the Bills' offensive line that became known as the "Electric Company" that led the way for
O.J. Simpson to become the NFL's first 2,000-yard rusher during the 1973 NFL season.
Art Still (b. December 5, 1955) is a former American football defensive end in the NFL, for Kansas City Chiefs (1978-1987)
and Buffalo Bills (1988-1989). Still was a 4-time Pro Bowl selection, following the 1980-1982 and 1984 seasons,
He was named the Kansas City Chiefs's Most Valuable Player twice (1980 and 1984).

2. And now the angels are making a wooden (building), and when they have completed
that task I will place My hand upon it and preserve it, and there shall come forth
from it the seed of life, and a change shall set in so that the earth will not remain
without inhabitant. 3. And I will make fast thy seed before me for ever and ever, and
I will spread abroad those who dwell with thee: it shall not be unfruitful on the face
of the earth, but it shall be blessed and multiply on the earth in the name of the Lord.'

11. Behold, John is a mighty fisher, fishing for the souls of men. He throws
      his great net out into the sea of human life; he draws it in and it is full.
13. Behold the thousands come to hear the Wild Man of the hills; they come in crowds
      that he may wash them in the crystal flood, and with their lips they do confess their sins.
15. But blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see the king.
16. And blessed are the strong in heart, for they shall not be cast about by every wind that blows;
19. O men of Israel, take heed to what this prophet has to say! Be strong in mind;

67 in Books on Philosophy and Religion
110) Hymn 67 in Book 1 of the Rig Veda is a song of praise to Agni, the God of Fire:
1. VICTORIOUS in the wood, Friend among men, ever he claims obedience as a King.
    Gracious like peace, blessing like mental power, Priest was he, offering-bearer, full of thought.
2. He, bearing in his hand all manly might, crouched in the cavern, struck the Gods with fear.
    Men filled with understanding find him there, when they have sing prayers formed within their heart.
3. He, like the Unborn, holds the broad earth up; and with effective utterance fixed the sky.
    O Agni, guard the spots which cattle love: thou, life of all, hast gone from lair to lair.
4. Whoso hath known him dwelling in his lair, and hath approached the stream of holy Law,—
   They who release him, paying sacred rites,— truly to such doth he announce great wealth.
5. He who grows mightily in herbs, within each fruitful mother and each babe she bears,
    Wise, life of all men, in the waters' home,— for him have sages built as 'twere a seat.

Rig Veda Book 1, 67.1-5 (circa 1500 B.C.)
Lao Tzu (604 BC-517 BC), Tao Te Ching, Verse 67:
The whole world says that my way is vast
and resembles nothing. It is because it is vast
that it resembles nothing. If it resembles anything,
it would long before now, have become small.
I have three treasures which I hold and cherish.
The first is known as compassion,
The second is known as frugality,
The third is known as not daring
    to take the lead in the empire;
Being compassionate one could afford to be courageous,
Being frugal one could afford to extend one's territory,
Not daring to take the lead in the empire
    one could afford to be lord over the vessels.
Now, to forsake compassion for courage, to forsake
    frugality for expansion, to forsake the rear
    for the lead, is sure to end in death.
Through compassion, one will triumph in attack and
    be impregnable in defense. What heaven succours
    it protects with the gift of compassion.
(translated by D.C. Lau, Tao Te Ching,
Penguin Books, Baltimore, 1963, p. 129)

112) Lao Tzu (604-517 BC), Hua Hu Ching, Verse 67:
To achieve the highest levels of life, one must continually combine new levels of yin and yang.
In nature, the male energy can be found in such sources as the sun and mountains, and the female
in such sources as the earth, the moon, and the lakes. Those who study these things, which are only
hinted at here, will benefit immeasurably. Because higher & higher unions of yin & yang are necessary
for the conception of higher life, some students may be instructed in the art of dual cultivation,
in which yin and yang are directly integrated in the tai chi of sexual intercourse. If the student
is not genuinely virtuous and the instruction not that of a true master, dual cultivation can have
a destructive effect. If genuine virtue and true mastery come together, however, the practice can
bring about a profound balancing of the student's gross and subtle energies. The result of this is
improved health, harmonized emotions, the cessation of desires and impulses, and, at the highest
level, the transcendent integration of the entire energy body.

115) Section 67 of Plato's Philebus— Socrates to Protarchus on pleasure's rank in life:
Pleasure will take fifth place. And not first place, no, not even if all the oxen
and horses & every other animal that exists tell us so by their pursuits of pleasure.
It is the animals on which the multitude rely, just as diviners rely on birds, when
they decide that pleasures are of the first importance to our living a good life,
and suppose that animals' desires are authoritative evidence, rather than
those desires that are known to reasoned argument, divining the truth
of this and that by the power of the Muse of philosophy.

There is a fourth class of sensible things... called by the name of colors and are

to the sense of sight... White and black are similar effects of contraction and
dilation in another sphere, and for this reason have a different appearance.

He occupies an appropriate position & realizes his ambition in affairs.
He settles his thoughts and quiets his mind; riches & blessings have
just arrived. Celebrations and joy are increasingly to one's advantage.

Rapid advance and leisurely pace each have their own meters;
The moon sinks into the western sea, the sun ascends in the east.
When fortune comes, why must you labor your mind?
The wind will waft you across the rivers and seas,

of Evagrios the Solitary (345-399 AD)
When you are praying, do not shape within yourself any image

the impress of any form; but approach the Immaterial in
an immaterial manner, and then you will understand.

126) Text 67 of On Spiritual Knowledge and Discrimination: 100 Texts
of Saint Diadochos of Photiki (400-486 AD)
All God's gifts of grace are flawless and the source of everything good: but the gift which inflames
our heart and moves it to the love of His goodness more than any other is theology. It is the early
offspring of God's grace and bestows on the soul the greatest gifts. First of all, it leads us gladly
to disregard all love of this life, since in the place of perishable desires we possess inexpressible
riches, the oracles of God. Then it embraces our intellect with the light of a transforming fire, and
so makes it a partner of the angels in their liturgy. Therefore, when we have been made ready, we
begin to long sincerely for this gift of contemplative vision, for it is full of beauty, frees us from
every worldly care, & nourishes the intellect with divine truth in the radiance of inexpressible light.
In brief, it is the gift which, through the help of the holy prophets, unites the deiform soul with God
in unbreakable communion. So, among men as among angels, divine theology— like one who
conducts the wedding feast— brings into harmony the voices of those who praise God's majesty.

127) Text 67 of For the Encouragement of the Monks in India who had Written to Him: 100 Texts
of Saint John of Karpathos (circa 680 AD)
We should mention in this connection an inward state that shows the degree of dispassion attained by
the Joseph hidden within each of us. Our intellect, departing from Egypt, leaves behind it the burden
of the passions and the builder's basket of shameful slavery, and it hears a language that it does not
understand (cf. Psalm 81:5-6). It hears no longer the demons' language, impure and destructive
of all true understanding, but the holy language of the light-giving angels, who convert the intellect
from the non-spiritual to the spiritual— a language which illumines the soul that hears and accepts it.

of Saint Anthony of Egypt (251-356 AD)
If you so wish, you are a slave of the passions; and if you so wish,
you are free and do not yield to the passions. For God created you
with free will; and he who overcomes the passions of the flesh is crowned
with incorruption. If there were no passions there would be no virtues,
and no crowns awarded by God to those who are worthy.

Mahamati the Bodhisatva-Mahasattva's Questions to the Buddha:
Self-nature, the discriminating, the discriminated, the visible [world],
dualism— whence are they? Various forms of vehicles, families,
those born of gold, jewels, and pearls?
67th Verse of Chapter 3 in Lankavatara Sutra:
"Coming" (ayam) means the originating of the objective world as effect,
and "going" (vyayam) is the not-seeing of the effect; when one thoroughly
understands the "coming-and-going" discrimination ceases.

Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things, /
Who created death and life that He may try you— which of you is best in deeds;
and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, / Who created the seven heavens one
above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent God;
then look again, can you see any disorder?

to fulfill your various needs, go to thos who employ all the methods
& teach all the doctrines. If you do not understand, whose fault is it?

134) Case 67 of Hekiganroku: Fu Daishi Concludes His Lecture on the Sutra
Main Subject: Emperor Wu of Liang asked Fu Daishi to give a lecture
on the Diamond Sutra. Fu Daishi mounted the platform, struck the
reading desk with his baton, and descended from the platform.
The emperor was dumbfounded. Shiko said to him, "Your Majesty,
have you understood?" The emperor said, "No, I do not understand."
Shiko said, "Daishi has concluded his lecture.
Setcho's Verse:
Instead of staying in his hut,
He gathered dust in Liang.
Had Shiko not lent a hand,
He would have had to leave the country,
As Bodhidharma did, by night.

Notes: This was a genuine demonstration of the Diamond Sutra:
"There is no Dharma to be preached, and that is called Dharma preaching";
"The past mind is not attainable, the present mind is not attainable,
future mind is not attainable"; & "Abiding nowhere, let the mind work."
Another sutra says "You preached nothing. I heard nothing.
No preaching and no hearing: that is true Prajna [wisdom].

135) Chang Tsai (1020-1077), Correcting Youthful Ignorance, Section 67:
"Everything has principle. If one does not know how to investigate principle
to the utmost, he would be dreaming all his life. Buddhists do not investigate
principle to the utmost. They consider everything to be the result of subjective
illusions. Chuang Tzu did understand principle, but when he went to its utmost,
he also considered things to be a dream. Therefore in referring to Confucius and
Yen Yüan [Confucius' pupil], he said that they both were dreaming."

The knowledge obtained through hearing and seeing is not the knowledge

with things, the knowledge so obtained is not from within. This is what is
meant by extensive learning and much ability today. The knowledge
obtained from moral nature does not depend on seeing and hearing.

138) Section 67 of Chu Hsi's Chin-ssu lu:
The learning of the superior man renews itself every day.
To renew every day means to advance every day. What does
not renew itself every day surely falls back every day. There has
never been anything which does not advance and yet does not fall
back. Only in the Way of the sage is there neither advancing nor
falling back, for in its development it has reached the ultimate.

Section 67 of Wang Yang Ming's Instructions for Practical Living:
I asked, "Should names, varieties, and systems of things. be investigated first of all?"
The Teacher said: “It is necessary only for a person fully to realize the substance
of his own mind, and then its functions will be found right in its midst. If one should
nourish the substance of his mind so that there is really equilibrium before the feelings
are aroused, then naturally when they are aroused they will attain harmony in due
measure and degree, and whenever it may be applied it will be correct... I point out
that if we know that first things must come first,, then we can approach the Way.”
He again said, “The superior man in a position of wealth and in noble station,
he does what is proper to a position of wealth & to noble station, and in a position
of difficulty and danger, he does what is proper to a position of difficulty and danger.
In all these he is not restricted to any particular thing. Only those who have correctly
nourished the substance of their mind can do so.”

I was able to see plainly how clear a perceeption the spirits of Jupiter have
about spiritual matters, by the way the pictured the Lord's method of turning
wicked affections into good ones. They pictured the intellectual mind as a.
beautiful shape, and supplied it with activity matching the life of affection.
They did this in a way indescribable in words, so cleverly as to excite praise
from angels. There were present some learned men from our world, who had
steeped their intellectural faculty in scientific terminology, writing and
thinking much about form, substance, the material and the immaterial,
and suchlike, without putting them to any use. These were unable to
grasp even the representation of the idea as a picture.

141) Chapter 67 of Wei Wu Wei's Ask the Awakened (1963) is titled "Syllogistically":
You cannot reach non-duality by means of a logical syllogism: you can bring interdependent
counterparts into correlation, but there will always remain a gap which cannot logically be
bridged, for logic is based on dualistic thinking. Duality and non-duality belong to different
modes. The jump is from this to the other shore: it is the paramita. the going beyond.
Logical thinking can only lead us to the brink, and that surely is its most precious function...
    The dreamed object cannot establish by logic that he is the dreamer,
but if he could realize it he would be awake.
    For the dreamer is the dreaming, and the dreaming is the dream,
the dream is the dreaming, and the dreaming is the dreamer.

Para #67 from Volume 16, Part 1
of Paul Brunton's Enlightened Mind, Divine Mind
Notebooks: "World-Mind in Individual Mind—
    The frontiers between God and man cannot be obliterated
although the affinity between them can be established.
    The impossibility of such instantaneous illumination being permanent
without due preparation and purification was taught by the Buddha:
"If the cloth be dirty, however much the dyer might dip it into blue,
yellow, red, or lilac dye, its colour will be ugly and unclear—Why?
Because of the dirt in the cloth. If the heart is impure one must
expect the same sad result."
    The benign figure and still meditative face of Gautama, sitting in
his thrice-folded yellow garment and penetrating into the deep secret
chambers of mind, offers an inspiring spectacle. The solid strength
and paradisaic calm stabilized in his person have helped millions
of people in the Asiatic lands. Yet there were fateful moments when
Gautama refused to appear in public to tell others what he knew,
when the peaceful life of utter anonymity was his reasoned preference.
    The most that a master can give is a glimpse, and that not to everyone.
If the Zen assertion were true, if anything more than that, if full and final
and durable illumination could be passed on to another, what Zen master
could be so lacking in compassion as not to confer it upon everyone,
everywhere? But it is not done simply because it cannot be done.
    To play the role of spiritual adviser to any person is to accept a grave responsibility. (5.67)
Para #67 from Volume 16, Part 2 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "World-Idea"—
    The World-Idea holds within itself the laws which rule the world, the supreme
intention which dominates it, and the invisible pattern which forms it.
    Yin is forever accompanied by its opposite Yang, which flows in an opposing current. (3.67)
    In the complicated structure of the human personality, we find different levels of being,
with different forces operating at each level.
Para #67 from Volume 16, Part 3 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "World-Mind"—
    Only in such a language as Sanskrit does one find a word which covers
this ample meaning, that truth and being are one. The word is Sat.
    Is it not a miracle that physical objects, minerals like coal and oil, can be turned
into heat and light and power, that is, into energies, as men are doing today?—
that matter can be transmuted into electrical energy, which can be turned into sounds,
pictures, songs, and words as it is thrown across the world? But what is the essence
of this energy, whence does it come ultimately? Where else but from the Great Mind
which activates the universe?
    The World-Mind is a radiation of the forever incomprehensible Mind.
It is the essence of all things and all beings, from the smallest to the largest.
Para #67 from Volume 16, Part 4 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "The Alone"—
    We know as much, and as little, about the Primal Mind as we know why
there was a beginning of the universe--that is, precisely nothing.
    All evaluative theories, opinions, judgements, interpretations are assemblages
of thoughts. Insofar as religious theories depart from or lack direct insight into the Real,
into what is, they are mere thoughts. Where these thoughts enter into the recording,
or the communication, of the result of such insight they colour it, add to it, adulterate it.
It is when the person attempts to report the Impersonal that this danger exists.
143) "Understanding People" is Lesson 67
of Subramuniyaswami's Merging with Siva (1999):
    Love is the source of understanding. You know intellectually
that within you resides the potential, expressed or nont, for all human
emotion, thought and action... With understanding, a great thing happens—
your life becomes even, balanced and sublime. The ups and downs within
yourself level out, and you find yourself the same in every circumstance,
find youself big enough to overcome and small enough to understand...
If you are creative, you will begin to truly create. If you are a mystic,
you will have deeper & ever more fulfilling insights in your daily
meditations. All of the mysteries of life will unfold before your
inner vision once the instinctive mind is mastered in your life.

144) Koan 67 of Zen Master Seung Sahn—
Empty Becoming:
The emptier I do become,
the more delivered from the Me,
the better shall I understand
what is God's liberty.
  1. If you are empty, how do you "become"?
  2. How do you understand "God's liberty"?
One mind never appeared. God and you
are never separate. When your mind appears,
you must believe in God one hundred percent.

151) 67 Lines in Shakespeare's poem Phoenix and the Turtle (1601):
This is an allegorical poem about the death of ideal love by Shakespeare.
It is widely considered to be one of his most obscure works and has led to
many conflicting interpretations. It has also been called "the first great
published metaphysical poem". As published, the poem was untitled.
The "turtle" is the Turtledove (symbol of fidelity), not the shelled reptile.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Phoenix and the Turtle, Commentary
Expressing his love towards a young man
in 67th Sonnet (1609) of William Shakespeare:
Ah! wherefore with infection should he live,
And with his presence grace impiety,
That sin by him advantage should achieve,
And lace itself with his society?
Why should false painting imitate his cheek,
And steal dead seeming of his living hue?
Why should poor beauty indirectly seek
Roses of shadow, since his rose is true?
Why should he live, now Nature bankrupt is,
Beggared of blood to blush through lively veins?
For she hath no exchequer now but his,
And proud of many, lives upon his gains.
    O! him she stores, to show what wealth she had
    In days long since, before these last so bad.

153) Chapter 67 of Melville's Moby-Dick (1851):
The ivory Pequod was turned into what seemed a shamble; every sailor a butcher.
You would have thought we were offering up ten thousand red oxen to the sea gods...
And now suspended in stages over the side, Starbuck and Stubb, the mates, armed with
their long spades, began cutting a hole in the body for the insertion of the hook just above
the nearest of the two side-fins. This done, a broad, semicircular line is cut round the hole,
the hook is inserted, & the main body of the crew striking up a wild chorus, now commence
heaving in one dense crowd at the windlass. When instantly, the entire ship careens over
on her side; every bolt in her starts like the nailheads of an old house in frosty weather;
she trembles, quivers, & nods her frighted mast-heads to the sky.

Herman Melville (1819-1891), Moby-Dick, Chapter 67: Cutting In
154) 67th Poem of Emily Dickinson (1859):
Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple host
Who took the flag to-day
Can tell the definition,
So clear, of victory,

As he, defeated, dying,
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Break, agonized and clear.

"You are overstocked already. Dunnett's Farm never carried
more than fifty bullocks— even in Mr. Wright's time.
And he used cake. You've sixtry-seven and you don't cake.
You've broken the lease in that respect. You're dragging
the heart out of the farm

67th Verse in Tagore's Gitanjali:
Thou art the sky and thou art the nest as well.
O thou beautiful, there in the nest it is thy love that
encloses the soul with colours and sounds and odours.
There comes the morning with the golden basket in her right
hand bearing the wreath of beauty, silently to crown the earth.
And there comes the evening over the lonely meadows deserted
by herds, through trackless paths, carrying cool draughts
of peace in her golden pitcher from the western ocean of rest.
But there, where spreads the infinite sky for the soul to take her
flight in, reigns the stainless white radiance. There is no day
nor night, nor form nor colour, and never, never a word..

Poem 67

when faces called flowers float out of the ground
and breathing is wishing and wishing is having—
but keeping is downward and doubting and never
—it's april(yes,april;my darling)it's spring!
yes the pretty birds frolic as spry as can fly
yes the little fish gambol as glad as can be
(yes the mountains are dancing together)

when every leaf opens without any sound
and wishing is having and having is giving—
but keeping is doting and nothing and nonsense
—alive;we're alive,dear:it's(kiss me now)spring!
now the pretty birds hover so she and so he
now the little fish quiver so you and so i
(now the mountains are dancing, the mountains)

when more than was lost has been found has been found
and having is giving and giving is living—
but keeping is darkness and winter and cringing
—it's spring(all our night becomes day)o,it's spring!
all the pretty birds dive to the heart of the sky
all the little fish climb through the mind of the sea
(all the mountains are dancing;are dancing)

164) Sonnet 67 in Pablo Neruda's 100 Love Sonnets (1960)
The great rain from the South falls on Isla Negra
like a single drop, lucid and heavy,
the sea opens its cool leaves and receives it,
the earth learns as a cup to fulfill its wet destiny.

Give me your kisses, water to my soul,
salty from these months, the honey of the fields,
fragrance dampened by the sky's thousand lips,
the sacred patience of the sea in winter.

Something calls to us, all the doors turn
open by themselves, the rain repeats its rumour to the windows,
the sky grows downward till it touches the roots:

so the day weaves and unweaves its heavenly net,
with time, salt, whispers, growth, pathways,
a woman, a man, and winter on the earth.

(There are 70 poems in this edition; Poem 67 is "Two Cities")
Two Cities

There is a stretch of water, a city on each side—
one of them utterly dark, where enemies live.
Lamps are burning in the other.
The well-lit shore hypnotizes the dark shore.

I swim out in a trance
on the glittering dark water.
A steady note of a tuba comes in.
It's a friend's voice: "Take up your grave and walk."

Parables and Portraits (1990), 67th poem
He had heard from her several times during his long absence. Three letters managed to arrive at Troy, one at Calypso's island, and one at the cave of Polyphemus (it was delivered by a sheep). All of them written on the same light-blue 5 x 8" stationery, in her girlish, touchingly fluid handwriting, with looped thetas, and nus as round as upsilons. "Things are difficult but all is well... How ripe I have become for you... Much love..." The longer he was away, the more intensely he felt the gravitation of that love. Even on Aeaea or Ogygia, caught up in the embrace of one of the importunate, multi-orgasmic nymphs whom it was his fate to satisfy, he could sense her presence, could see her in bed or walking on the beach or sitting at her loom, as faithful to him, body and heart, as he was to her in his heart alone, alas.
    Now, for the first time in twenty years, he stands before her. The suitors have gone home, disappointed but polite. The whole household— servants, maids, swine, cattle, chickens, and the astonished dogs— have retired. There are just the two of them. She looks, at fifty-three, even more beautiful, more transparent, than when he last saw her: her radiance like a flame that has outgrown its need for fuel. He is so proud of who she has become.
    The silence deepens.
    He stands there for a long time before letting himself plunge to the bottom of her eyes.

The great taloned osprey
nests in Scotland.
Her nest's the biggest
thing around, a spiked basket
with hungry ugly osprey offspring
in it. For months she sits on it.
He fishes, riding four-pound salmon
home like rockets. They get
all the way there before they die,
so muscular and brilliant
swimming through the sky.

67th poem is by Hadewijch of Antwerp (13th century),
"Love's Maturity" (translated by Oliver Davies)
In the beginning Love satisfies us.
When Love first spoke to me of love—
How I laughed at her in return!
But then she made me like the hazel trees,
Which blossom early in the season of darkness,
And bear fruit slowly.
