Chapter 21: The Eternal Law

Thirdly: know well that you cannot be attuned to the infinite through thinking. Only through silence, only through a non-thinking awareness, a non-thinking sensitivity will you be attuned. Thinking is the disturbance, the barrier, because whenever you are thinking you are not in the universe. You are enclosed in your mind.

Whenever you are not thinking you are not enclosed. The walls have disappeared, you have moved into existence. Thinking is non-existential. Non-thinking.

But remember, non-thinking plus awareness. You can move into sleep; that will not do. Non-thinking and alert: no thought in the mind, no clouds in the mind, and alert. In that non-cloudy moment, in that alertness, you penetrate existence. You become one with it. Then the wave is the ocean.
