"Attention consists of suspending our thought, leaving it detached, empty and ready to be penetrated by the object. It means holding in our minds, within reach of this thought, but on a lower level and not in contact with it, the diverse knowledge we have acquired which we are forced to make use of. Above all our thought should be empty, waiting, not seeking anything, but ready to receive in its naked truth the object which is to penetrate it."

"Millions of human beings around the globe ask questions about
their life, about what they doing here, why they have so many
problems. They ask why life has so many pains and difficulties.
However, most people do not intelligently pursue their own
questions, instead they make the mistake of supplying their
own answers. The answer to a problem cannot exist on its own
level, it has to be above it, beyond it."
