Question: Can you tell me how it is, always to be in openness?
Jean Klein: Don't try to be open; don't project; live from moment to moment. Feel deeply what it means: open. The word open is not the experience open. It's a symbol.
See how the symbol acts on you. It's a symbol of the senses. Be completely attuned to it, otherwise the word simply remains a concept. When you say 'I am open' it means that you are completely unfurnished, but on the level of the senses you are immensity.
