taken from: Perverse Criticism

If a person wasn’t ‘running off at the mouth’ and reacting from the poison they picked up in society - all the stupidity, all the ’digs’, all the criticisms - what then would they do? The mind cannot stand being inactive. If you leave it alone, it will do all the old shit. That is one of the things that make the Work Ideas so unique. Even if you cannot practice all that you already ’know’ - at least there are things that you can ponder. You can remember that pondering is thinking and feeling about something at the same time! There is what to do: self-observation, non-identification - just to mention a few!
This is just where the expression comes in: “If you don’t call on the Work - it cannot help you.” And god knows that you need help!
