Paul Brunton - A Search in Secret-India

How divorce oneself from the age-old tyranny of thoughts?
I remember that the Maharishee has never suggested
that I should attempt to force the stoppage of thinking.
"Trace thought to its place of origin," is his reiterated counsel,
"watch for the real self to reveal itself,
and then your thoughts will die down of their own accord."
I have repeatedly interrogated my consciousness
of physical, emotional and mental sensations in turn, but,
dissatisfied in the quest of self,
have eventually left them all.
I have then applied the attention of consciousness to its own centre,
striving to become aware of its place of origin.
