Are you restless, anxious, awash in choices and arrangements, busy with calculations? Something is keeping you from the knowledge that there is nothing you need. Find out what it is. Blow it up.
Of the outer world, that of form and flags, we know a lot. Of the inner world, that of emptiness and silence, we know a little. We go where our interest takes us.
Knowledge is artifactual, stored up, mnemonic. Knowing is immediate, unpremeditated and explosive. The most difficult clients to work with are intellectuals.
Knowledge comes from the inside, information from the outside. Information without knowledge is exceedingly dangerous. It built the Enola Gay, the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb. With pants-down puerility, scientists christened the bomb “Little Boy.”
Men come here and I tell them what I know. Some of our conversations are pretty brief.
