Turning in

Turning inwards is not a turning at all. Going inwards is not a going
at all. Turning inwards simply means that you have been running after
this desire and that, and you have been running and running and you
have been coming again and again to frustration.That each desire
brings misery, that there is no fulfillment through desire. That you
never reach anywhere, that contentment is impossible. Seeing this
truth, that running after desires takes you nowhere, you stop. Not
that you make any effort to stop. If you make any effort to stop it is
again running, in a subtle way. You are still desiring--maybe now it
is desirelessness that you desire. If you are making an effort to go
in, you are still going out. Any effort can only take you out,
outwards. All journeys are outward journeys, there is no inward
journey. How can you journey inwards? You are already there, there is
no point in going. When going stops, journeying disappears; when
desiring is no more clouding your mind, you are in. This is called
turning in. But it is not a turning at all, it is simply not going
