A man who is seeking truth is not a disciple of truth. Suppose you say to me, "I have no love in my life; it has been a poor life, a life of continuous pain, therefore, in order to gain comfort, I seek truth." Then I must point out that your search for comfort is an utter delusion. There is no such thing in life as comfort and security. The first thing to understand is that you must be absolutely frank.
