I am nobody’s leader; I am just living my life, doing my thing…
I am nobody’s leader; I am just living my life, doing my thing.
And the people who enjoy being with me, they are welcome.
It is a friendship.
We are fellow travelers.
Maybe there is a little difference: I am awake, they are asleep — so what?
I was asleep, now I am awake.
They are asleep, tomorrow they will be awake.
Their very sleep proves only one thing, that they have the capacity to be awake.
And I don’t disturb anybody’s sleep prematurely!
When I see the person is going to wake up anyhow, then I just give him a little nudge.
I don’t nag people, I don’t go on nagging them, “Wake up!
Wake up!” because if you nag a sleepy person to wake up too much, he may start dreaming that he has awakened.
That is a difficulty…because the mind can create all kinds of dreams.
It can even create the dream that one is awakened, that one is enlightened.
