All thought is of the lower knowledge.
There is no control.
There’s just being.
Go silent.
And experience directly.
Learn how to take the needle off the record.

We weren’t taught how to use our own mind,
but you’ve had the experience of no thought...
because you’ve been in the ocean,
you’ve been on the mountain
and those moments were rather profound.

When that album’s goin round,
just pick up the needle,
and go silent.
