It takes a radical chicken to come out of the shell. You will never come out of the shell until you learn to be radical and pick your way out – – cracking the shell of mortal limitation, and coming through all materialism and breaking the skin of materialism and freeing yourself clearly and completely before you can be free indeed. It takes radicalness. It takes fanaticism. It takes ignorance.
Just look at the eggs, the fresh eggs. If after the manner of men they could speak, they would be saying to the incubated egg: “You are foolish coming out of that shell, something will crush you to death, and you will be no good.”
