Chapter 1: Letters
My respects to you.
I was away, but your letter followed me here.
I am pleased to have it.
I see life as full of bliss.
Ordinarily, we do not have the eyes to see this
and so are deprived of it,
but this seeing can be created.
Perhaps it is not correct to say it can be created;
it is already there,
it is only a matter of opening the eyes,
and then - everything changes.
Meditation achieves this.
Meditation means: peace; emptiness.
This emptiness is there
but is concealed by the flow of thoughts.
As thoughts cease it comes into view.
It seems difficult to become free of thoughts
but it is very simple.
The mind seems very restless
but it can easily settle.
The key to this transcendence is witnessing.
One has to be a witness,
an observer of the mind.
One has to watch it,
just watch it.
The moment the witness state dawns,
that very moment one becomes free of thoughts.
This in turn opens the door to bliss
and then this very world changes
into a new world altogether.
Results will come slowly.
You are not to worry about that,
their coming is certain.
