HOW CAN I STOP WANTING TO BE SPECIAL?
Just listen to the fact.
Just go into your being and see, and the effort to be special will disappear.
When you know that YOU ARE special, the effort will disappear.
If you want me to give you some technique so that you can stop being special, then that technique will disturb.
Again you are trying to do something, again you are trying to become something.
First you were trying to become special, now you are trying not to become special.
But trying… trying… improving in some way or other, but never accepting the you that you are.
My whole message is: Accept the you that you are, because God accepts it.
God respects it, and you have not respected your being yet.
Be immensely happy that God has chosen you to be,
that God has chosen you to exist, to see his world, to listen to his music,
to see his stars, to see his people — love and be loved — what more do you want?
Rejoice! I say again and again rejoice in it!
And in that very rejoicing, by and by, it will explode in you like lightning that you are special.
But remember, that will not come as an ego that you are special as against others.
No, in that moment you will know that everybody is special.
The ordinary exists not.
So this is the criterion: If you think I am special' –
more special than that man, more special than that woman –
then you have not understood yet. It is the ego game.
Special, not comparatively; special, not in comparison with anybody — special just as you are.
