Opening the world of thought
does not depend on systems or psychologies
but on direct experience.
If we can communicate with our mind,
we can open thoughts through thoughts;
we can interpret without an interpreter.
The starting point is
to see that we are not free,
that we are trapped
in the field of emotions and thoughts.
The more deeply we understand this,
the more easily we can cut through
the bonds that restrict us.
Eventually, we can directly touch
the meaning of knowledge,
finding the source of its vitality and abundance,
and with it, true meaning and value.
This discovery is like coming home.
