We not only need a great deal of energy to change ourselves in the light of our own understanding of ourselves, but also we need a great deal of energy to change the social order, to bring about a different society, a different culture. All religions have tried to capture an energy that is not brought about by thought. We are talking of a different kind of religion, in which there are no saviors, masters, accepting some authority, in which there is direct perception. And that very perception brings about its own order, its own vitality, its own energy. We are talking of an energy that comes through the total understanding of consciousness, and going beyond it. That consciousness is you. And because of its content it must be always limited.

How am I, how is the mind, which is so conditioned, how is that mind to transform itself without conflict and have an energy that is totally different from the energy that’s brought about through conflict, an energy that never deteriorates, an energy that renews itself all the time, without any motive? Can thought, as time, as movement within the field of the known, can that stop, and only come into action when the known has to function?

Thought cannot be stopped by control. Thought cannot be brought to an end by will. Will is another part of desire. It is desire that says, ‘I want to control in order to achieve heaven, God, truth.’ Sirs, you cannot achieve it, you cannot invite it. Your house must be in order. That’s all your concern. If you really understood this thing, that is, a life in which you have brought about through understanding of yourself without effort, order out of disorder. Then when you have that foundation really well laid then you will come upon this strange energy, and that transforms the whole business of life.
