“Thus, inner seclusion is a way of being that is freed from attachment to past, future, and even present perceptions.
.
.
Consciousness ceases to take its stand on forms, feelings, perceptions, or thoughts.
.
.
Nothing is taken up as a basis upon which to construct personal identity.
.
.
This realization of the unfabricated nature of things brings the uncluttered mind to perfection.
.
.
We don’t just clear away physical and mental rubbish, and then rest in that neat and tidy mental space.
.
.
The very constituents of personality are exposed as utterly empty.
.
.
There is nothing there to hold, and no one to try.
.
.
Nothing exists that would structure a relationship between assumed constructs of I and you, this and that, there and here, past and future.”
