No measurement the mind can ever make is large enough to encompass man’s full nature.
Although you can physically take an inactive posture,
The Great Stillness is still an internal matter.
Compared to the demands of instinct,
everything the mind does is entertainment.
That which is done and then forgotten may endure,
but that which must be remembered confesses its finiteness.
The agitated mind is addictive…it’s supposed to be.
It is not accurate to say that man has “lost” his true nature, but rather that it has
been partially “overridden.”
The human mind is the primo example of “alleged responsibility.”
One guy kept buggin’ a mystic to tell him The Secret, and finally insisted:
“Well, just give me a hint — is it terse?”
Who but the liberated might have a mind as still as a lazy man’s body?
When you consider the search for The Mystical Way, consider this:
Man’s instinctive nature has no way, but rather is a way.
Things are arranged as they are so that man will think as he does.
(Or the way things are arranged is the way man thinks.)
All measurements eventually mislead the mind.
