Under no circumstances accept what the speaker says at any time. There is no authority; neither you nor the speaker have authority; both of us are investigating, observing, looking, learning.
To be free of authority is to die to everything of yesterday so that your mind is always fresh, always young, innocent, full of vigour and passion – it is only in that state that one observes and learns.
