It is only through silent awareness that our physical
and mental nature can change.
This change is completely spontaneous.
Making an effort to change, we do no more than shift our attention from
one level, to another,
remaining in the vicious circle.
This only transfers energy from one point to another.
It still leaves us oscillating between suffering and pleasure,
each leading inevitably inevitably back to the other.
Only living stillness, stillness without someone trying to be still, is
capable of undoing the conditioning
our biological, emotional and
psychological nature has undergone.
There is no controller, no selector, no personality making choices.
