' To Feel Reality '...
When attention is stilled, the mind void of thoughts and the desires at rest, it is possible for the instructed person to perceive truth much more clearly than before, and to feel Reality. But the instruction must concern what is the always-true and the ever-real.
It is only as he frees himself from all inward and outward pressures, all suggestions and impositions, that he becomes relaxed enough to receive what the Overself can present him with--ego-freed truth.
In the mind's stillness it is possible to find either nothing at all or clear understanding. It depends on the man's preparation for it, on his knowledge, character, and experience.
