Beloved Bhakti,

Love. When I say mutation, I do not mean simply change.

Change is from the known to the known.

A sinner becomes a saint; then it is change and not mutation.

You can practice change - but you cannot practice mutation.

Because only the known can be practiced.

And then any change is going to be only a modified past.

Because the past will be continuous in it.

And the past also will be the master of it.

Because it is cultivated by the past.

In other words, change is from This to That.

It is a movement in the known.

But mutation is explosion.

From this to nothingness.

From here to nowhere.

You cannot practice it.

On the contrary, you are the only hindrance.

So what is to be done?

Really nothing can be done.

Be aware of this helplessness.

And, remain in this helplessness.

Do not do anything.

Because any doing will be escaping from this fact of helplessness.

Do not move at all.

And then there is explosion.

And then there is mutation.

"Well, Nasrudin, my boy," said his uncle, "my congratulations! I hear you
are engaged to one of the pretty Noyes twins."

"Rather!" replied Mulla Nasrudin, heartily.

"But," said his uncle, "how on earth do you manage to tell them apart?"

"OH," said Nasrudin. "I DON'T TRY!"
