Q: Is it possible to be a light to oneself, not dependent on anybody?
Can we remain with the fact, without any deviation, without any interference of all the accumulated memories of the past, to observe what is taking place without thought acting as a barrier?
Is it possible to be completely, totally free from all influence, from all propaganda, tradition, superstition, every form of influence –both external and inward?
Face the fact that dependence means pain. Look at it.
There must be freedom from the known. The known is all the memory, the past. To be a light to oneself, to stand by oneself, the past with all its tradition must totally vanish. What has been registered on the tape of the brain –that must end, and no present or future registration take place.
