In the empty state there is nothing to worry or be scared about! In the worried state there is plenty to be scared about.

Rudra spent 3 days on retreat with Jac O'Keefe at the end of which she said something to the effect of 'if you think you have something to bring home with you, you didn't get it. If you think 'you got it' you didn't.' Rudra's friend Richard said in sotto voce "If you didn't get it, you got it".
Roushka was there too and after it was explained to him about the direct path and the progressive path he plumped for the progressive one. He justified this by the remark 'I'm built for comfort not for speed'. Little does he know that the paths meet further up the road. So we sent him a wave and wish him God Speed, the old rascal.

Shooting ducks at the fun-fare. Shoot one and another pops up and another. Rudra wore himself out aiming, shooting and reloading. he found it best to let them float by. After all it was only a fun-fare and not to be taken too seriously. Oddly enough he spent the whole day there and was fascinated by the display without having to lift a finger.

Western man with his overdeveloped thoughtscape lives here. He wants to nail the fundamental questions and establish a blueprint for living; a manual to refer to which might ease his existential angst. As long as there is an idea that this can be attained by thought so long will the ineffable be at a remove. The simple fact is that Life is bigger than mental positions although it includes them.
