Call off the search. Relax

“The more you think you have to get somewhere or do something or attain something to finally understand the Truth, the more the Truth seems to recede from you because you will start making plans with your mind, reading stuff to figure out with the mind, etc., which only gives rise to more thoughts and activity of the mind. That is why, ‘Be Still’ (Summa iru) – what does the pot need to do to “become” clay? Nothing! It just has to realize it already is and always was clay because its prop and support and being is clay. The attention has to be withdrawn from the name-and-form called pot (body-mind [thoughts] – hence ‘Be Still’) for one to realize the presence of Clay (Consciousness) as constituting the reality of the pot (body-mind).”–D.
