Try to relax your mind. Try to put away all thoughts. Don’t think about trying to relax your mind. Don’t think about the memory of the last time you tried to put away all thoughts. Think of nothing. Think of emptiness, space and light. This may take some time. If you feel irritated, strange or stupid, try not to giggle. You are reacting. Reacting to a situation like you would the next time and the last time. Try not to react. Remember you do not exist. Do not attempt to establish the validity of the assertion at this point, you may reflect on this later.
Ultimate freedom lies in the conscious recognition of destiny. The inner plan revealed to oneself acts as a guide fomenting all action. Without destiny, freedom is an illusion cast ever deeper through the repetition of inconsequential acts. Variations of inconsequential action reveal to the conscious mind a sensation of freedom; of opportunities taken, movements made, situations avoided. Without destiny, freedom is deterministic freefall, at best a probabilistic carnival. The raindrop on the window pane, cast down under its own weight.
Destiny is a flame of purpose for each life. Freedom lies therefore not in isolated acts of a disembodied self, but in the all-consuming course of right action, as revealed through a singular process of acceptance. True acceptance of destiny requires the re-emergence of primal considerations of the heart, and a temporary rollback of the acting mind.
