Thought of the Day

from A Spiritual Teachers Notebook

There is a great deal of value in abstention, whether in thought or action, most particularly if it is done unreservedly and without motivation. The arguments for or against any form of self fullness or indulgences are inevitably one-sided. The scales are always weighted on the side of self-indulgence.

Purity need not be justified and cannot finally be.

There is no reason for Truth.

Holiness (or Wholiness) is self-evident. There is nothing comparable to it. Cause and effect are one. The value of abstention is in the act of abstaining not in the justification of it. All acts are self- justifying.

Relative position is no position. There is no reality in justified action. Attaching previous causation to apparent present circumstances establishes objective sequentiality or space/time. Objective thought is without cause, and therefore meaningless.

"It occurs to me that I keep saying the same thing over and over and over and over and over and bla bla bla bla bla bla bla..."
"The hell with it!"

"See you in a hundred years."


"Well here we are back again."

"Now about the case for subjective reality........"
