Truth is not of the past or of the present—it is timeless

There is no path to truth and there are not two truths. Truth is not
of the past or of the present—it is timeless—and the man who quotes
the truth of the Buddha, of Shankara, of the Christ, or who merely
repeats what I am saying, will not find truth because repetition is
not truth: repetition is a lie. Truth is a state of being which
arises when the mind—which seeks to divide, to be exclusive, which
can only think in terms of results, of achievement—has come to an end.
Only then will there be truth. The mind that is making effort,
disciplining itself in order to achieve an end, cannot know truth
because the end is its own projection and the pursuit of the
projection, however noble, is a form of self-worship.…He alone
shall know truth who is not seeking, who is not striving,
who is not trying to achieve a result.
