A talk given by Phiroz Mehta at Dilkusha, Forest Hill, London on 5th January 1969

God is locked up in every cell of our being. Understand, attend, and God is liberated. Look at what is not Truth in oneself now, at images as they arise with the words. Attend without desire to images in oneself.

An Indian Proverb says that "a fish returns to the surface after dashing its head against a stone at the bottom".

It means that reaction is normal and begins when the pendulum as swung to its extreme. We are all in search of happiness. The human mind is always trying to explore new paths of happiness, joy, peace and pleasure. Many look for these in wine and the like, wealth and possesions. By doing so the result is quite often, not more happiness, but greater physical disatisfaction, mental discontent, spiritual deteriortion, and social discord.

Phiroz Mehta's talk - Obererving The Nature Of Attention - in a well rounded, simplistic, (with a touch of humour) yet still profound, shows us, that there is no need to search for something that we already are.

William Brogan-Hill
