    1.
    I received your letter.
    How lovingly you insist on my writing something,
    and here am I, drowned in a deep silence!
    I speak, I work,
    but I am steeped in emptiness within.

    There, there is no movement.
    Thus I seem to be living two lives at one time.
    What a drama!
    But perhaps all of life is a drama
    and becoming aware of this opens the door
    to a unique freedom.
    That which is
    inaction in action
    stillness in motion
    eternity in change
    – that is truth
    and that is existence.
    Real life lies in this eternity –
    everything else is just the stream of dreams.
    In truth the world is just a dream
    and the question is not whether to leave these
    dreams or not,
    one just has to be aware of them.
    With this awareness, everything changes.
    The centre moves.
    A shift takes place from body to soul.
    And what is THERE?
    It cannot be told.
    It has never been told
