What is the immediate perception freed from all ideas?…

If we are caught in ideas, that will bring us nowhere.

Only when the Mind is free from any content – can it experience something directly, without postponment…

The New is awareness with no name. It necessitates the courage of letting go of the known – that is, of name and current ideas you have about life…It is about inquiring beyond the old thought patterns.

The cessation of pursuit outwardly is reasonably easy. The hard part is the cessation of pursuit inwardly – so to say, to “arrest” thinking…We have to follow the process step by step in greatest attention…I am sure you are acquainted with the unending inner chatter in your head. That cannot be stopped by a deliberate act, because that “authority” trying to put an end to a thought, is, another thought. Hope you see what I mean, because it is either very easy or utterly complicated…

We have to come to that point where thought must come to an end. I say again: NOT MADE COME TO AN END. Thinking is inertia, and if not given enough fuel, at some point it does stop by itself.

The greatest issue here is that no book, no guru, nothing and no one, can ever help us in this process. We have to proceed in this undertaking step by step in greatest vigilance…When thought stops, begins self-knowledge. And self-knowledge is awareness – that is, instant after instant in intimate relation.

This intimate movement released from thinking is self-awareness…
Life-awareness…- what we usually call “LOVE” 🙂
