Challenge and Response

Posted by on Jan 3, 2014

The mind is ever active and restless. Its very activity is exhausting. The mind is never quiet, always pursuing, analyzing, torturing itself.

From the old you derive pleasure, never from the new. There is no time in the new. So, if you can look at all things without allowing pleasure to creep in—at a face, a bird, the colour of a sari, the beauty of a sheet of water shimmering in the sun, or anything that gives delight—if you can look at it without wanting the experience to be repeated, then there will be no pain, no fear and,...
