“The Spiritual journey begins not by reading but by not reading; not by listening but by not listening; not by thinking but by not thinking; not by changing yourself but by not changing your Self.”—General Theosophy
This Gen Theos #82 is Zen Buddhism: "clapping w/one hand". This statement is a paradox of the paradoxes. If affirms what the Buddha said: "meditate with the mind empty." Reading, listening, and thinking are mental activities using the Lower Manas. W/the mind disabled by this paradox, the activity "goes upward" to the Higher Manas/Buddhi/Atman - thus resulting in change. That last phrase in the paradox, about "changing and not changing" will come without mental action. It will be intuitivce.
