      To free the mind from all conditioning, you must
      see the totality of it without thought. This is
      not a conundrum; experiment with it and you will
      see. Do you ever see anything without thought?
      Have you ever listened, looked, without bringing
      in this whole process of reaction? You will say
      that it is impossible to see without thought; you
      will say no mind can be unconditioned. When you
      say that, you have already blocked yourself by
      thought, for the fact is you do not know.

      So can I look, can the mind be aware of its conditioning?
      I think it can. Please experiment. Can you be aware
      that you are a Hindu, a Socialist, a Communist, this
      or that, just be aware without saying that it is right
      or wrong? Because it is such a difficult task just to
      see, we say it is impossible. I say it is only when you
      are aware of this totality of your being without any
      reaction that the conditioning goes, totally, deeply;
      which is really the freedom from the self.
