Chapter 17: The Poetry of the Feminine
But people get into trouble because they’re always thinking rather than experimenting.
Experiment. Experience; then your question will have a reality about it. About such questions you can have a good conversation, but these questions are not going to help you in any way. That’s why I told you from the very beginning that you don’t have any experience of devotion. You know only the experience of dependence. In love, you have found dependence. In friendship, you have found dependence. In all your relationships, sooner or later you find you are caged.
In devotion you will find freedom - freedom not only from darkness, from death, but freedom from everything that you have known up to now - so that you can fly into the fresh sky, enjoying the exhilaration, the ecstasy of the new, of the novel, of the mysterious.
