and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.

A fool is one who goes on trusting;
a fool is one who goes on trusting against all his experience.
You deceive him, and he trusts you;

His trust is tremendous; his trust is
so pure that nobody can corrupt it.
Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense.
Don't try to create a wall of knowledge around you.

let it happen, and then go on dropping it.

go on dying to the past so you remain in the present here-now,
as if just born, just a babe.

and within knowledge everything is included;

because this has been given to you by others -

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,

You will become a child again, reborn.

Drop guilt! - because to be guilty is to live in hell.

Once guilt disappears you will have
a totally different kind of life, luminous and radiant.
You will have a dance to your feet
and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.
