- Meditation is the summation of all energy.
It is not to be gathered little by little, denying this and denying that, capturing this and holding on to that;
but rather, it is the total denial, without any choice, of all wasteful energy.
Choice is the outcome of confusion;
and the essence of wasted energy is confusion and conflict.
To see clearly what is at any time needs the attention of all energy;
and in this there is no contradiction or duality.
This total energy does not come about through abstinence, through the vows of chastity and poverty, for all determination and action of will is a waste of energy because thought is involved in it, and thought is wasted energy: perception never is.
The seeing is not a determined effort.
There is no ``I will see'', but only seeing.
Observation puts aside the observer, and in this there is no waste of energy.
The thinker who attempts to observe, spoils energy.
Love is not wasted energy, but when thought makes it into pleasure, then pain dissipates energy.
The summation of energy, of meditation, is ever expanding, and action in daily life becomes part of it.
