Thought THE MASTERS’ exhortations to abjure “thinking” do not imply the suppression of thought but the reorientation, by articulation

, of the impetus that results in dualistic thought into its im-mediate experience. Suppressed thought is the negative aspect of the dualism “thought-no-thought,” another mode of thought itself and “one half of a pair,” whereas what the Masters mean is wu nien, which is the absence of both counterparts, thought and no-thought, which is the presence of the suchness of thought, and that is expressed in spontaneous Action (pure action arising from Non-action:Wu wei). WUNIENis the presence of the absence of no-thought.
