As long as we remain within the confines of the thinking mind, we can't experience the state of non-thinking. If we can't experience non-thinking, we will not understand what our life truly is. Please realize this for yourself! Just sit.
Practice is this life, and realization is this life, and this life is revealed right here and now.
Have good trust in yourself,
not in the One that you think you should be,
but in the One that you are.
I am not devaluing thoughts. Just do not mix up what we think with what actually is.
