- The repetition of words, of prayers, is self-hypnotic, self-enclosing and destructive.
The isolation of thought is always within the field of the known, and the answer to prayer is the response of the known.
Meditation is far from this.
In that field, thought cannot enter;
there is no separation, and so no identity.
Meditation is in the open;
secrecy has no place in it.
Everything is exposed, clear;
then the beauty of love is.
Meditation is the ending of the word.
Silence is not induced by a word, the word being thought.
The action out of silence is entirely different from the action born of the word;
meditation is the freeing of the mind from all symbols, images and remembrances.
