The second relaxation technique. Stop the doors of the senses when feeling the creeping of an ant. Then.
“What is to be done? Close your eyes and think that you are blind and you cannot see. Close your ears and think that you cannot hear. With all of the five senses, you just close them. How can you close them? It is easy. Stop breathing for a single moment: all your senses will be closed. When the breath has stopped and all the senses are closed, suddenly you are removed - far away.
This sutra says, Stop the doors of the senses. Become stonelike, closed to the world. When you are closed to the world, really, you are closed to your own body also, because your body is not part of you; it is part of the world. When you are closed completely to the world, you are closed to your own body also. Then, Shiva says, then the thing will happen.
And then, when you cannot move, you are thrown back to yourself, you are centered in your self. Then, for the first time you can look from your center. And once you can look from your center you can never be the same man again.”
