When you are born in love, religion is born in you — and then your whole life is a melody, a beautiful song…
Religion has nothing to do with churches and temples and rituals: religion is born only when somebody pulsates with love. Each individual has to give birth to a religion — and unless you have given birth to a religion in you, you are not religious. You cannot join an organization and become religious, remember — religion is not an organization to belong to.
To be religious you have to give birth to religion in your innermost core, in your very core: when religion is born THERE, only then are you religious. Not by becoming a Christian but by becoming a Christ, not by becoming a Buddhist but by becoming a Buddha, religion is born.
When you are born in love, religion is born in you — and then your whole life is a melody, a beautiful song. And then you will be surprised that nothing is wrong: all fits together. Right now, nothing fits together. Right now, you are a mess: right now, you are an anarchy. Right now, you are just traffic noise — rushing in all directions, falling apart, disintegrating. Right now, you are nothing but anguish, agony.
Once love is born, you have a center. Once love is born, you are centered — and everything falls in tune with the center. You become an orchestra, a beautiful harmony. It is hidden in you: you have brought it into the world, it is yet unmanifest. Kabir says: Manifest it — let your love be manifested. In that manifestation will be your prayer.
