      "In his hour of silent meditation the student
      will find that there is one space of silence
      within him where he can find refuge from thoughts
      and desires, from the turmoil of the senses and
      the delusions of the mind. By sinking his
      consciousness deep into his heart he can reach
      this place - at first only when he is alone in
      silence and darkness. But when the need for the
      silence has grown great enough, he will turn to
      seek it even in the midst of the struggle with
      self, and he will find it. Only he must not let
      go of his outer self, or his body; he must learn
      to retire into his citadel when the battle grows
      fierce, but to do so without losing sight of the
      battle; without allowing himself to fancy that by
      so doing he has won the victory. That victory is won
      only when all is silence without as within the inner
      citadel. Fighting thus, from within that silence, the
      student will find that he has solved the first
      great paradox."
