"Is it possible to renew the mind? - 24 May 1967 - When the mind is living through imagination and thought, it is incapable of living in the complete fullness of the present. - Thought has created time, not chronological time but psychological time. That is, 'I will be,' 'I should be.' - Is it possible for the brain to be quiet, to give an interval between the old and the new? This interval is the timeless nature in which thought cannot possibly enter. - That which has continuity is repetitive, which is time. It's only when time comes to an end there is something new taking place. - To die every day to every problem, every pleasure, and not carry over any problem at all; so the mind remains tremendously attentive, active, clear. - Since love is not desire or pleasure, how does one come upon it? - Q: Is the feeling of responsibility a part of the order and discipline you were talking about? - Q: Why don't people get angry with what you are saying?"
