Chapter 5: My Skin and Bone Are Turned to Gold

That’s why we see life as always divided - God and Devil. Drop language, drop this linguistic pattern. Once language is no longer on your mind and you look directly into reality, day is night. Suddenly you will start laughing at why you missed it for so long! Day - every day turns into night; night turns into day again every morning, and you have been missing. Life is always turning into death, death always turns again into life, and you have been missing. They are not two, they are one whole. This is the non-dual, advait. This is the most essential religion.

Lost in his own thoughts, he seems insane to others.

Because his consciousness is no longer divided by language, he is no longer looking at the world through words. He looks insane: he is absorbed in his own being, he is lost in his own vision. And the vision is so vast, as if a thousand and one suns have risen together. It is so dazzling.

Lost in his own thoughts, he seems insane to others.
He opens his arms to welcome the world,
calling all to the ferryboat tied to the coast of life.

And he goes on calling, “Come to me, come, if you wish to meet the novel man,” and the boat is ready. And his boat is not against life, it is tied to the coast of the life. He is not negative. And he says, “Come, and I can take you to the other shore. Come, and I can make you new. Come, and I can take you into eternity.”

Enough for today.
