Toni Packer

‘Can the inner noise be entirely left alone while attending? When the changing states of body-mind are simply left to themselves without any choice or judgment – left unreacted to by a controlling or repressive will – a new quietness emerges by itself.’ (The Work of This Moment)

These words, delivered on the subject of silent retreat, echo Chan Master Sheng Yen’s from the other day.
