‘The great secret of spiritual science is allowing something to happen without doing it. It needs great understanding and awareness to allow things to happen. No doing is required on our part, because whatever we do, we do out of our confused minds. It can’t be something really deep, because the mind itself is very shallow.Seeing this, understanding it, a new approach arises——the approach of letting go. The great secret of spiritual science is allowing something to happen without doing it. It needs great understanding and awareness to allow things to happen.
The mind is constantly tempted to interfere. It brings its desires in, it wants things to be according to it, and that is the whole problem. We are tiny parts of this vast existence. To have some idea of one’s own is to be idiotic. That is exactly the meaning of the word idiot—– to have some idea of one’s own. It is like a wave in the ocean trying to do something on its own.It is just a part of an immense ocean. It is neither independent nor dependent, because it is not separate at all. The wave exists not—- it is only a manifestation of the ocean. So are we, and if we understand it, then all anxiety disappears. Then there is nowhere to go,there is no goal to be attained, and there is no possibility to fail or be frustrated. A great relaxation comes………this is the meaning of surrendering, of trusting. Then life takes a totally new color.It has not that tension that ordinarily is always there. One lives relaxedly, calm and quiet, at home.’
