P. 11

There is only destruction and no change. For all change is a 

modified continuity of what has been. All social, economic 

revolutions are reactions, a modified continuation of that which has 

been. This change does not in any way destroy the roots of 

egocentric activities.

Destruction, in the sense we are using the word, has no motive; 

it has no purpose which implies action for the sake of result. 

Destruction of envy is total and complete; it implies the freedom

disciplined existence is a life of conformity; in conformity there is 

no freedom from fear. Habit destroys freedom; habit of thought, 

habit of drinking and so on makes for a superficial and dull life. 

Organized religion with its beliefs, dogmas and rituals denies the

the brain of space-time. Being cleansed, the brain can then deal 

with time-space.

on a dark night but it was there, penetrating, blissful.

Something strange is happening to the physical organism. One
