All that I can do is to help you find the way that reaches to your own innermost light…

All that I can do is to help you find the way that reaches to your own innermost light...

 

I persuade you, I seduce you towards awakening.

But I am not in a hurry — it cannot be done in a hurry.

I have to wait, and when I see that you are just coming out of your sleep, only then a little shaking helps and you are fully awake.

Even if you are not shaken up at the last moment, you may awaken.

It may be a little later; it is just a question of time.

The master has to be watchful not to be in a hurry, because sometimes it happens that you see people in misery and you would like to help them immediately, but to help them immediately may harm them more if they are not ready to wake up.

My people are not my followers, they are just my friends, my lovers — they have fallen in love with me. And as you know, love is blind; it is not a logical thing, so how can they convince you?

They have not connected themselves with me through logic; it has been an illogical jump. They can only share their joy with you, and if that brings you here it is good.

And certainly my sannyasins will tell you not to follow me, because that’s exactly what my teaching is: not to follow me. Each individual is unique; nobody has to become an imitator. And they will discourage you from adopting the way I am preaching — they will discourage you so that you can find yourself. Otherwise, people are very willing to believe. Belief is so cheap; it costs nothing to believe.

My people will discourage you from believing, from following, from adopting the way I am teaching. If you become interested you have to come here and explore yourself. It is an exploration. It is an adventure into the unknown.

It is going beyond the familiar, beyond that which can be comprehended, beyond that which the mind can cope with. It is a journey into the beyond. It is very delicate, far more delicate than the petals of a rose. You can destroy it very easily; any coercive effort and it is destroyed. So they bring you here without any coercion, without any logic.

They only invite you, and that too not directly — very indirectly. And they will discourage you from following me, because it is not a question of following me; the real question is of following your own light.

All that I can do is to help you find the way that reaches to your own innermost light. I can show you the way. And when you have found your light you will have to live your own life.

It will not be as a Christian, it will not be as a Hindu, it will not be Mohammedan; it will simply be your life, nobody Else’s.
