In a very deep sense he (K) was a profound teacher because he did not seek to instruct you but because he was concerned with an act of exploration. Any good teacher, I feel, would be concerned in awakening, in the student, the capacity to explore. And you get the capacity to explore by exploring, you don’t have to do something else and then get the capacity to explore and then he begin to explore.The very act of exploring is also creating the capacity to explore.
…what happens when, instead of thought-knowledge, one puts attention in the middle of the picture?
It was Kabir who introduced it… and it flowed from there.
This is… what I would call “the spirit of Kabir”.
It (attention) must not be left out of the equation; otherwise, what is left is ashes.
