144. Letting Everything Go; Putting All Thoughts Down
1 You should not get attached to forms. Do not keep thinking about what is above the “Gate of Heaven” and what sensation you will have when you get there. This is getting attached to form. You need to allow it to take its course naturally.
2 About purposive methods: when a person uses his own energy to do something, it is the acquired way and it is contrary to the natural, non-purposive method.
3 Be vigilant of this and be sure to have a purified heart. Reduce your desires. Let everything go. Put all thoughts down. Let everything take its own course. Just keep the “Gate of Heaven” fully open, not half open or half closed.
4 This means that you should keep your heart purified and your desires reduced. Let everything go. Put all thoughts down. Even if you try to let go of everything and think of nothing, you cannot. More so, much of what you think of is imaginative or delusive. Thinking of nothing is almost humanly impossible.
5 Do not attempt to do anything, because as soon as you attempt to do something, you fall into the acquired way.
