Recognize the natural silence of your own Self. Silence is not a behavior. Silence is not a practice. It is the natural perfume of being. Trying to be still is not stillness. Find that stillness inside, which simply Is. There is no one to practice it. It can only be recognized. It is here. It is not hiding. It is not hurried. Simply stop identifying with the past, future, present or with any self image. Be open to being nothing. No thing. So that internally you are simply like a space. But this is not an inert space, but a space full of aliveness. Still don’t define yourself as aliveness. Don’t define yourself at all. Simply remain in natural self-attention.
Keep very quiet and watch what comes to the surface of the mind. Reject the known, welcome the so far unknown and reject it in its turn. Thus you come to a state in which there is no knowledge, only being, in which being itself is knowledge. To know by being is direct knowledge.
