I realize the state of my own mind. I see that - it is instrument
of sensation and desire and that it is mechanically caught up in routine.
Such a mind is incapable of ever receiving or feeling the new for
the new must obviously be something beyond sensation - which is always
the old. So this mechanical process with it's sensations has to come
to an end, has it not? Karma is not an ever - enduring chain; it is
a chain that can be broken at any time. What was done yesterday can
be undone today; there's no permanent continuance of anything. Continuance
can and must be dissipated through the understanding of its process.
So when you SEE this process, when you are really aware of it without
opposition, without a sense of temptation, without resistance, without
justifying or judging it then you will discover that the mind is capable
of receiving the new and that the new is never a sensation therefore
it can never be recognized, re-experienced. It is a state of being
in which creativeness comes without invitation, without memory and
that is reality. That which is unnamable cannot be recognized. It
is not a sensation."

"What is relevant are the
teachings. Who the teacher is, is not relevant."
". . . it is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in
your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband,
your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians,
your gods - you have nothing but images.
"I maintain that Truth is
a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any
religion, by any sect.... I do not want to belong to any organization of a
spiritual kind; please understand this ... If an organization be created for
this purpose, it becomes a crutch, a weakness, a bondage, and must cripple the
individual, and prevent him from growing, from establishing his uniqueness,
which lies in the discovery for himself of that absolute, unconditioned
"This is no magnificent
deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow
someone you cease to follow Truth.... For 18 years you have been preparing for
this event, for the Coming of the World Teacher. For 18 years you have
organized, you have looked for someone who would give a new delight to your
hearts and minds ... who would set you free -- and now look what is happening!
Consider, reason with yourselves, and discover in what way that belief has made
you different ... in what way are you freer, greater, more dangerous to every
society which is based on the false and the unessential?..."
"You are all depending for
your spirituality on someone else, for your happiness on someone else, for your
enlightenment on someone else.... You have been accustomed to being told how far
you have advanced, what is your spiritual status. How childish! Who but yourself
can tell you if you are incorruptible?... I desire those, who seek to understand
me, to be free ... from the fear of religion, from the fear of salvation, from
the fear of spirituality, from the fear of love, from the fear of death, from
the fear of life itself.... You can form other organizations and expect someone
else. With that I am not concerned, nor with creating new cages, new decorations
for those cages. My only concern is to set men absolutely, unconditionally
"One night in the strange
stillness ... he woke up to find something totally different and new. The
movement had reached the source of all energy. This must in no way be confused
with, or even thought of as, god or the highest principle, the Brahman, which
are the projections of the human mind out of fear and longing, the unyielding
desire for total security. It is none of those things. Desire cannot possibly
reach it, words cannot fathom it nor can the string of thought wind itself
around it. One may ask with what assurance do you state that it is the source of
all energy? One can only reply with complete humility that it is so."
