I know only two types of men – those who have turned their backs on truth and those who have opened their eyes to truth. There are no other types of men.
The power of thought is as great as the power of electricity. We have understood the power of electricity, but most of us know nothing at all about the power of thought. And those who do know it cannot use it, because to use the power of thought you have to transform yourself at your very roots.
Try to think of things about which you are unable to think at all – and you move outside the sphere of thinking. Doing this is entering the circumference of the self.
The door to truth, immortality and eternity is neither a languishing love nor an unquenchable thirst nor an insatiable passion. In fact, neither the mind nor anything of the mind is the pathway that leads to truth. Truth exists where the mind has no access whatsoever.
There is no greater power than the power of thought. Thought is the essence of individuality. The flow of a man’s life is centered in thought; all that is manifested within him is expressed through thought. It is thought that separates man from the animal.
It must be remembered, however, that there is a great difference between possessing the power of thought and being overpowered by thought. Not only is there difference, there are also contradictions involved. When a man in overpowered by thought he becomes incapable of thinking. Being overpowered by thought can reduce a man’s mind to madness, which is nothing more than a disordered state of thinking. It is possible that the roots of all madness lie deep in the evolution of this kind of thinking on a global scale. Under the chaotic burden of thought the spontaneous and natural ability to think is stifled, the inspiration to think is killed. And this tumult of thoughts is mistaken for the actual power to think.
