Be, know, and love only being. Notice any impulse to do or to understand. This impulse can never be fulfilled, only dissolved. Subside into being. There are two types of silence: the absence of sound and thought, and the silence behind that absence, or the silence behind the silence. Rest as that. Notice the expectation something will change and then you will be happy. These expectations can never be satisfied by the world. Expectations projected onto a teaching can never be satisfied by that teaching. The teacher is the final disappointment. An efficient teaching does not fulfil expectations, but dissolves them, revealing that we are already the happiness for which we long. The separate self, or ego, resists sinking into the great silence, but its only existence is the activity of expectation and boredom. See what happens when these activities are met with this understanding. When they come to an end, the great silence remains.
