Nisargadatta Maharaj - No resistance

No particular thought can be mind's natural state, only silence. 
Not the idea of silence, but silence itself. 
When the mind is in its natural state, it reverts to silence spontaneously 
after every experience, or, rather, every experience happens against the background of silence. 
It has nothing to do with effort. 
Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts. 
When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet, 
you just find your way between. 
When you fight, you invite a fight. 
But when you do not resist, you meet no resistance. 
When you refuse to play the game, you are out of it.
