Not running after techniques

‘I have been four months with you, and you have still not given me a method or technique.’ 

‘A method?’ said the Master. ‘What on earth would you want a method for?’

‘To attain inner freedom.’

The Master roared with laughter. ‘You need great skill indeed to set yourself free by means of the trap called a method.’

Anthony de Mello,  Awakening: Conversations with the Master
