"Damyata: The boat responded
 Gaily, to the hand expert with sail and oar
 The sea was calm, your heart would have responded
 Gaily, when invited, beating obedient
 To controlling hands"
"And all shall be well and
 All manner of thing shall be well
 When the tongues of flame are in-folded
 Into the crowned knot of fire
 And the fire and the rose are one."

of turtles
In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna exhorts Arjuna to cultivate discipline/control by in-folding the senses the way a turtle in-folds its organs.
Here's an insight, if you like, into the cosmic principle of discipline/control/order.
I guess it operates in all spheres of existence, and at all levels -- from the micro to the macro.
Nothing stays in place without it -- without it there is disorder/chaos.
It's turtles, indeed, all the way down, if you like !!!
