All solutions the physical eye seeks dissolve.
Spiritual vision looks within and recognizes immediately that the altar has been defiled and needs to be repaired and protected.
Perfectly aware of the right defense it passes over all others, looking past error to truth.
Because of the strength of its vision, it brings the mind into its service.
This re-establishes the power of the mind and makes it increasingly unable to tolerate delay, realizing that it only adds unnecessary pain.
As a result, the mind becomes increasingly sensitive to what it would once have regarded as very minor intrusions of discomfort.
