I exist without knowing how. My existence itself is a question to which I am obliged to respond, whether or not I so wish. My response is in the way I exist at the very moment, and the kind of action in which I am engaged. At every degree of awareness my response is strictly conditioned by my state of being. The challenge in the question is always new. It is the response that is old, creating a separation from the question. This is because in the response the ordinary “I” is in play.

Liberation leads to liberation...by liberation is meant the liberation which is the aim of all schools, all religions, at all times.  This liberation can indeed be very great.  All men desire it and strive after it.  But it cannot be attained without the first liberation, a lesser liberation.  The great liberation is liberation from influences outside us.  The lesser liberation is liberation from influences within us.

In speaking of evolution it is necessary to understand from the outset that no mechanical evolution is possible.  The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness.  And 'consiousness' cannot evolve unconsciously.
