      What is important in meditation is the quality
      of the mind and the heart. It is not what you
      achieve, or what you say you attain, but rather
      the quality of a mind that is innocent and
      vulnerable. Through negation there is the positive
      state. Merely to gather, or to live in, experience,
      denies the purity of meditation.

      Meditation is not a means to an end. It is both
      the means and the end. The mind can never be made
      innocent through experience. It is the negation
      of experience that brings about that positive state
      of innocency which cannot be cultivated by thought.
      Thought is never innocent. Meditation is the ending
      of thought, not by the meditator, for the meditator
      is the meditation. If there is no meditation, then
      you are like a blind man in a world of great beauty,
      light and color.

      Wander by the seashore and let this meditative
      quality come upon you. If it does, don't pursue it.
      What you pursue will be the memory of what it was -
      and what was is the death of what is. Or when you
      wander among the hills, let everything tell you the
      beauty and the pain of life, so that you awaken to
      your own sorrow and to the ending of it. Meditation
      is the root, the plant, the flower and the fruit.
      It is words that divide the fruit, the flower, the
      plant and the root. In this separation action does
      not bring about goodness: virtue is the total perception.
