Therefore the more ideas, the more ideals you have, the more inactive you are. Please do see this: when you act from an idea you are not active, because you are 33 living your life in a world of fiction without any reality. So escape, postponement, offering a continuity, which gives you a habit, and functioning from a habit—that is memory and therefore mechanical. So you can see, ideas do not bring passion. I think it is very important to understand this: to act, you must have passion; to do, you must have strong feelings; otherwise, it becomes mechanical.
Madras, 4th Public Talk, January 2, 1966 Collected Works, Vol. XVI, p. 22 So we are concerned with time. And we say time is the interval between actions. A mind that is in action can be without time. Please follow this. A mind that is in action with an idea, with a motive, with a purpose, with a formula, is caught in time; and therefore that action, being incomplete, gives continuity to time. Bombay, 5th Public Talk, February 23, 1964 Collected Works, Vol. XIV, p. 150 51 Is it possible to live in this world without giving continuity to action, so that one comes to every action afresh?

New Delhi, 5th Public Talk, February 28, 1960 Collected Works, Vol. XI, pp. 352-3 Thought is essentially born of choice…any action born of such thought…will produce sorrow, misery, not only for me but for others as well. So what we are trying to do is to feel out the totality of action. There is no action without the background of thought, is there? And thought is always choice.
