Mind

Mind has its utilities.
It is practical, it is needed, and even when you have become a meditator mind will be needed.
But then it will be a servant, not a master.

Life is a verb

Leave a comment

Life is a verb. Life is not a noun, it is really "living" not "life."
It is not love, it is loving.
It is not relationship, it is relating.
It is not a song, it is singing.
It is not a dance, it is dancing.
See the difference, savor the difference.

Say YES !

1 Comment

Theists, atheists, both are victims.
The really religious person has nothing to do with The Bible or the Koran or the Bhagavad Gita. The really religious person has a deep communion with existence.
He can say yes to a roseflower, he can say yes to the stars, he can say yes to people, he can say yes to his own being, his own desires.
He can say yes to whatsoever life brings to him.
He is a yea-sayer.

Nowhere to now-here..

Leave a comment

We carry the past so that we can use it in the future.
Otherwise who will carry the past? It is unnecessary. If there is no future,
what is the point of carrying the knowledge that the past has given to you?
It is carrying a burden which will destroy the joy of the journey.
And let me remind you, it is a pure journey.
Life is a pilgrimage to nowhere, from nowhere to nowhere.
And between these two nowheres is the now-here.
Nowhere consists of two words: now, here.
Between these two nowheres is the now-here.

Love or attachment?

Leave a comment

Drop the idea that attachment and love are one thing.
They are enemies. It is attachment that destroys all love.
If you feed, if you nourish attachment, love will be destroyed;
if you feed and nourish love, attachment will fall away by itself.
They are not one;
they are two separate entities, and antagonistic to each other.

 Against truth, the greatest enemy in the world is the knowledgeable person.
..and the greatest friend is one who knows that he does not know.

No mind

 The mind has its limited uses. Use it.
When you are working in your office, I am not telling you to be a no-mind.
When you are working in your shop or in the factory,
I am not saying to be a no-mind.
I am saying be perfectly a mind.
Use the mind but don’t carry it continuously, twenty-four hours, day in and day out, with yourself. Don’t go on dragging it.
Use it as you use a chair.
