I am not concerned with the future at all. I am totally herenow………….
The future will take its own course. We cannot manage the future in a certain way, that it should be so or should not be so. All efforts have always failed.
Buddha tried that there should not exist any organized religion in his name. He tried that there should not be any image made of him, but there are more images of Buddha than anybody else in the world. There are a few temples which are called 'thousand Buddha temples' — one thousand images and one. There is one temple in China, a cave temple, which has ten thousand Buddha images.
Even Buddha couldn't manage it. There is no way to manage it. The only way is to use the present, and leave the future for the future. There will be people; we will not be here — what they are going to do with my words, it is their freedom.
If they want to make chains out of them, that is their freedom. If they want to be liberated by these words, that is their freedom. If they want to make a prison out of the temple that we are creating, then it is their freedom! and it is their choice. Who are we to interfere?
to be constantly concerned so much about the future is wrong. Who are we? The future belongs to the future and will belong to future generations — they will do whatsoever they like to do.
One thing I can say: it is their freedom, whatsoever they do, and I have nothing against them. If they want to live in prisons, they will live in prisons. They will find a way to make a prison out of anything — they have always done so.
I am not concerned with the future at all. I am totally herenow. And this is what I would like you to be also, here and now. Whatsoever is transpiring between me and you, don't allow any interference. This idea is just a trap of the mind. This is the first thing I would like to say.
