The discovery of the truth is in the discernment of the false. You can know what is not . What is – you can only be. Knowledge is relative to the known. In a way it is the counterpart of ignorance. Where ignorance is not, where is the need of knowledge ? By themselves neither ignorance nor knowledge have being. They are only states of mind, which again is but an appearance of movement in consciousness which is in its essence immutable.

Whatever has a beginning must have an end. In the timeless all is perfect, here and now.

….practice desirelessness ?
No need of practice. No need of any acts of renunciation. Just turn your mind away, that is all. Desire is mostly the fixation of the mind on an idea. Get it out of its groove by denying it attention

You are entangled in a web of verbal definitions and formulations. Go beyond your concepts and ideas; in the silence of desire and thought the truth is found.

….Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts. When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet – you just find your way between.

If you are earnest you don’t need moving about. You are yourself wherever you are and you create your own climate. Locomotion and transportation will not give you salvation. You are not the body and dragging the body from place to place will take you nowhere. Your mind is free to roam the three worlds – make full use of it.

Live your life intelligently, with the interests of your deepest Self always in mind. After all what do you really want ? Not perfection, you are already perfect. What you seek is to express in action what you are. For this you have a body and mind. Take them in hand and make them serve you.
