      The trouble with the world," said the Master with a sigh, "is that human beings refuse to grow up.

      When can a person be said to have grown up?" asked a disciple.

      On the day he does not need to be lied to about anything.

      The ostensible purpose of all meditation is the cessation of thinking or conceptualization, but this can never be achieved by any entity because an entity is itself the thinking process. A deep understanding of this truth, however, can itself lead to a spontaneous fasting of the mind, whereby thought ceases effortlessly on its own, as would a clock cease whose winding has been allowed to run down.

      Tripping Over Joy

      What is the difference
      Between your experience of Existence
      And that of a saint?

      The saint knows
      That the spiritual path
      Is a sublime chess game with God

      And that the Beloved
      Has just made such a Fantastic Move

      That the saint is now continually
      Tripping over Joy
      And bursting out in Laughter
      And saying, "I Surrender!"

      Whereas, my dear,
      I am afraid you still think

      You have a thousand serious moves.

      After you have rejected
      what was to be rejected
      and accepted
      what was to be accepted,
      then
      only acceptance
      remains hollow.

      At that end you'll say,
      'What's this acceptance for, even?
      I don't need it."
      Then
      you'll arrive at
      'Who am I?'
