People do two wrong things….
People do two wrong things. First, they make themselves so hard that they cannot love. And then when somebody comes and knocks at their door, they refuse, because by refusing love the ego feels very very good. The ego always feels good whenever love is refused because it feels powerful. Whenever love is accepted, the ego feels powerless.
If you love, the ego disappears. If you don’t love, the ego becomes more and more concrete. So people don’t love, and even if somebody wants to share his being with them, or her being with them, they refuse. They go on becoming more and more hard and farther away from reality.
So remember two things: love is the way and the unmoving within you is the goal. That is the real self, the supreme self. The quality of that supreme self is witnessing. It only witnesses, it is not a doer. You walk; it witnesses walking. You eat; it witnesses eating. You become angry; it witnesses anger. It simply witnesses. It is just consciousness, that’s all…pure consciousness.
So love and go on falling into that consciousness. And nothing else is needed. This is all religion is about. In these two worlds the whole religion can be summrised.
