The fine points here are "quality" and "exemplary"--as if one has acquired
the state of Unity and can carry it in all actions then one can perform any
action. However there is such a thing as ³losing the Action in the View².
Not all spontaneity is enlightened spontaneity.

Life is in the details--as a tantric Buddha once said " Though my View is as
spacious as the sky, my actions and respect for cause and effect are as fine
as grains of flour."
