The timeless non-state cannot be achieved because
the mind cannot evolve towards it.
The mind can only bring you to the threshold.
Awakening comes unexpectedly when you do not wait for it,
when you live in not-knowing.
Only then are you available.
~ Jean Klein ~
Jean Klein was a wise, awakened being who never ceased reminding us to live in "not-knowing." This is the place that is ripe and juicy, ready without waiting to open to all that is. Our minds want something certain, stable and secure, but this is not the way of the universe. It is not the path we have chosen.
But we do, indeed, choose each step of the way to either hold on or let go.
