“So the thinking process minimizes and you start witnessing.
The higher state than that of attention is that you jump into Nirvikalpa Samadhi, into the state of Doubtless Awareness. Now it is not doubtlessness because you’ve argued it out or anything.
But is a state where you’re doubtless about things! I mean the way you speak, the way you behave, the way your attention is, you can make it out that “I’m doubtlessly there.” The discrimination becomes so sharp that you can just say,
“This is so and so and so,” there’s no fanaticism about it. As I told you this morning that if a blind man cross over something and says, “Oh there’s a snake here,” and he believes it’s a snake, he believes that it’s a snake, that’s fanaticism. Because he has no eyes to see and he believes it’s a snake, he says, “Oh, there is a snake here, I BELIEVE!”
But a person who has eyes sees, “No it’s a rope, it’s just a rope.” And he says, “No, it’s not (a snake), it’s a rope.” But he has eyes and when he says with his eyes, which can see that, that it’s a rope, he means it, the truth – then he’s not a fanatic. But he’s standing on the Truth. This subtle difference people don’t understand. Fanaticism comes through blindness and the truth comes through Realization. And at any cost you’ll not give up the truth, any cost!”
