Don't be Interested

When we study science we become drowsy quite soon, but we are very much interested in self-centered thinking. So, enlightenment is first. To believe in nothing is enlightenment. To believe in something which has no form or no color and which is ready to take form or color by some immutable truth - that is our enlightenment. So enlightenment, our activity and our thinking -  our practice, and then thinking -- if it is necessary - if you are not interested in it, that is our way.
