The guest is always ready to come in, but the host is missing. He is somewhere else, dreaming, desiring… He is never at home, never here now – he is either in the past or in the future.
There are only two ways to go astray: into that which is already past and into that which has not yet come. The past and the future are the only two ways to escape from the present. And God knows only one time. He has no acquaintance with the past and the future: the present is the only time for him – and we are never in the present. The host goes on knocking and cannot find God because he knocks in the past, in the future. And God goes on knocking and cannot find the host because he knocks in the present and the host is never in the present.
Life is always new, mind is always old. Life is never old, mind is never new. Hence they never meet, they can’t meet. Mind moves backward, life moves forward. So those who try to live life through the mind are simply doing something so utterly stupid that the day they recognize what they have been doing to themselves, they will not be able to believe that they could have been so stupid, so ridiculous, so absurd.
Life can be known only by a state of no-mind. That’s what meditation is: putting the mind aside, being without thoughts. Just being silent – not even a single word moves in the mind, no traffic, all is empty, quiet, still. Then suddenly you are in contact with life and you know its tremendous freshness, its liberating freshness. That is godliness, that is nirvana. To live life in its totality, to know life in its absolute freshness is to be blissful, is to be peaceful.
The moment you are empty of yourself, you are full of God. Both cannot exist together, remember. Remember again and again: both cannot exist together: it is either you or God. And it is the foolish person who chooses himself. Choose God: disappear as an ego. Forget yourself as an entity separate from existence, and in that very disappearance you are reborn.
It is a very paradoxical state: the moment you are empty of yourself you become full, and full for the first time, overflowingly full, inexhaustibly full.
The ego is just a shadow, it has no substance. It is a dream, not a reality. Drop the shadow so that you can attain the substance. Drop the false so that the real can be attained. All that I teach here is how to be empty of yourself so that you can be full of God. And the fullness is fulfillment.
Man is not meant to crawl and creep on the earth. He has the capacity to fly to the ultimate,Each age needs a new kind of spirituality because each age is different from any other; hence messengers keep on coming. A messenger is nothing but a man who translates the eternal truth for contemporary man,
We have not lost anything. God is not lost and hence has not to be found. We have only forgotten; it is just a question of remembrance. It is there in the deepest core of our being. Call it truth, God, bliss, beauty: all those things indicate the same phenomenon. There is something eternal in our beings, something immortal, something divine.
All that we have to do is to go deep, dive deep, into our own being, and to see, realize, recognize. Hence the journey is not really a journey. We are not to go anywhere; we have simply to sit silently and be.
सुरक्षा संभव नहीं है। तथ्य ही संभावना का है। असुरक्षा ही जीवन है। सच तो यह है सिर्फ मृत्यु ही सुरक्षित हो सकती है जीवन तो असुरक्षित होगा ही। इसलिए जितना जीवंत व्यक्तित्व होगा, उतना असुरक्षित होगा; और जितना मरा हुआ व्यक्तित्व होगा उतना सुरक्षित होगा।
जो इस सत्य को स्वीकार करके जीना शुरू कर देता है कि जीवन में कोई सुरक्षा नहीं है, असुरक्षा के लिए मैं राजी हूं मेरी पूर्ण सहमति है, वही संन्यासी है। और जो असुरक्षित होने को तैयार हो गया निराधार होने को, उसे परमात्मा का आधार उपलब्ध हो जाता है।
