- Meditation is the action of silence.
We act out of opinion, conclusion and knowledge, or out of speculative intentions.
This inevitably results in contradiction in action between what is and what should be, or what has been.
This action out of the past, called knowledge, is mechanical, capable of adjustment and modification but having its roots in the past.
And so the shadow of the past always covers the present.
Such action in relationship is the outcome of the image, the symbol, the conclusion;
relationship then is a thing of the past, and so it is memory and not a living thing.
Out of this chatter, disarray and contradiction activities proceed, breaking up into patterns of culture, communities, social institutions and religious dogmas.
From this endless noise, the revolution of a new social order is made to appear as though it really were something new, but as it is from the known to the known it is not a change at all.
Change is possible only when denying the known;
action then is not according to a pattern but out of an intelligence that is constantly renewing itself.
