So if you see the truth that analysis is not the way for a mind to be completely free of its conditioning, then you will drop completely the analytical process. If you see the danger of analysis as you see the danger of a serpent, actually see the danger of it, then you will never touch it. Then the mind is free from the idea of analysis; therefore, it has already a different quality. It is capable then of looking in another direction. The old direction, the old tradition, the methods, the systems, what the gurus offer, what all the books offer is the gradual process, which is a form of analysis. When you see the truth of it, you are completely out of it. Therefore your mind has become much sharper, much clearer.
The test of every religious, political, or educational system, is the man which it forms. If a system injures the intelligence it is bad. If it injures the character it is vicious. If it injures the conscience it is criminal.
Henri Frederic Amiel (1821 - 1881)

The human mind moves always forward, alters its viewpoint and enlarges its thought substance, and the effect of these changes is to render past systems of thinking obsolete or, when they are preserved, to extend, to modify and subtly or visibly to alter their value.
