- But is there something other than pleasure, pain, happiness and sorrow?
Is there a bliss, an ecstasy, that is not touched by thought?
For thought is very trivial, and there is nothing original about it.
In asking this question, thought must abandon itself.
When thought abandons itself there is the discipline of the abandonment, which becomes the grace of austerity.
Then austerity is not harsh and brutal.
Harsh austerity is the product of thought as a revulsion against pleasure and indulgence.
