      To the very ear of your ear,
      ... And to the Silence and
      Openness of the "Heart":


      ************************

      Physical practices have
      a limit, as do all self-
      improvement programs.

      Controlling action with an
      agenda keeps one confined to
      a pattern, and caught in the
      conflict of overcoming.

      There is the pleasure of achievement,
      and the pain of failure, both which
      results in a preoccupation with the "I",
      the "self" - the "me" and the "mine".

      In this way I am all the time
      self-consciously "becoming more
      or becoming less", as I measure,
      and try to control "my progress".

      So the sense of an egotistical
      self can become more solidified
      each time I try to improve myself
      with some daily agenda, and the
      more I enforce it, the more I loose
      the freedom of spontaneity.

      The mind does not know the way
      to the "Unknown", and that is
      why it is so essential to FEEL
      the spontaneity of the "Heart",
      and to let it dominate - to let
      it have duration, so that it can
      overcome all the ignorance and
      pettiness of the mind.
      ... Only then can there be "Freedom".

      Then Heart knows "The Way", but the
      mind does not. The mind can only
      accumulate negative or positive
      vanity - in its sense of achievement
      or failure, and in the sense of an
      entity becoming more or less,
      ... Because the mind does not have
      the power of "Being".

      Love,
      Tony
