Most of us are satisfied with authority because it gives us a continuity, a certainty, a sense of being protected. But a man who would understand the implications of this deep psychological revolution must be free of authority, must he not?
He cannot look to any authority, whether of his own creation or imposed upon him by another. There can only be one state in which reality, newness, can come into being, which brings about a revolution. That state is when mind is completely empty of the past, when there is no analyzer, no experience, no judgment, no authority of any kind.
