The direct path – La via directa


In the immediate perception of the direct path there is a total absence of known objects, since in order to experience something fully it [the mind] must be empty, free of memory, of feelings, of desire to get and of expectations. In the direct and immediate path, your background of no-state appears, which is waiting for the deep relinquishing of mental and bodily habits so as to be able to make an act of presence, that is, God, Grace, Presence, which is always present. Any move towards approaching it is a distancing itself, because when you desire something it is because you suppose that you are lacking it. Therefore, there is no spiritual evolution, since your natural state is not in a process of becoming; all objects appear and disappear in the background, and they only serve to reveal such background, the supreme no-state in which  you establish a no-relation with the object.

Jean Klein



En esta percepción inmediata de la vía directa hay una total ausencia de los objetos conocidos, pues para experimentar algo plenamente la mente debe de estar vacía, libre de memoria, de emotividad, de deseo de obtener y de expectativas. En la vía directa o inmediata aparece tu no-estado de fondo, que está esperando la relajación profunda de los hábitos de la mente y el cuerpo para poder hacer acto de presencia, esto es , Dios, la Gracia, la Presencia, que está siempre presente. Cualquier movimiento para alcanzarla es un alejamiento, porque cuando deseas algo es porque supones que te falta. Por tanto no hay evolución espiritual, puesto que tu ser natural no está en proceso de devenir, todos los objetos aparecen y desaparecen en el fondo y solo sirven para revelar dicho fondo, el supremo no-estado en el cual estableces una no-relación con el objeto.

–Jean Klein
