Seeker After Knowledge:
'While you live, you are learning. Those who learn through deliberate effort to learn are cutting down on the learning which is being projected upon them in the normal state. Uncultivated men often have wisdom to some degree because they allow the access of the impacts of life itself...If you try actively to learn from them, you learn certain things, but they are predetermined things... By that I mean that you are seeing what you want to see. This has become an automatic action... You cannot judge...You have set yourself a task: to find spiritual truth. You have sought this truth in the wrong directions... The excessive concentration upon the theme, the anxiety and emotion which is engendered in you, will ultimately pile up to such an extent that you will seek a relief from it...You will become converted to some cult which takes the responsibility...The alternative, which you will not take, is detachment.'
