- Thought cannot conceive or formulate to itself the nature of space.
Whatever it formulates has within it the limitation of its own boundaries.
This is not the space which meditation comes upon.
Thought has always a horizon.
The meditative mind has no horizon.
The mind cannot go from the limited to the immense, nor can it transform the limited into the limitless.
The one has to cease for the other to be.
Meditation is opening the door into spaciousness which cannot be imagined or speculated upon.
Thought is the centre round which there is the space of idea, and this space can be expanded by further ideas.
But such expansion through stimulation in any form is not the spaciousness in which there is no centre.
Meditation is the understanding of this centre and so going beyond it.
Silence and spaciousness go together.
The immensity of silence is the immensity of the mind in which a centre does not exist.
The perception of this space and silence is not of thought.
Thought can perceive only its own projection, and the recognition of it is its own frontier.
