Chapter 5: Five Techniques of Attentiveness

So I told that man, “Now I will give you the method.” And this was the method I gave him, to suck something and become the sucking. I told him, “Just close your eyes. Imagine your mother’s breasts or anybody’s breasts that you like. Imagine, and start sucking as if there is a real breast. Start sucking.” He started sucking. Within three days he was sucking so fast, so madly, he became so much enchanted by it. He told me, “It has become a problem - I want to suck the whole day. And it is so beautiful, and such deep silence is created by it.”

Within three months the sucking became a very, very silent gesture. The lips stopped, you couldn’t even have judged that he was doing something. But inner sucking had started. He was sucking the whole day. It became a mantra, a japa - a mantra repetition.

After three months he came to me and said, “Something strange is happening to me. Something sweet is falling from my head onto my tongue continuously. And it is so sweet and so energy filling that I do not need any food, there is no hunger left. Eating has become just a formality. I take something in order not to create any problems in the family. But something is continuously coming to me. It is so sweet, life-giving.”

I told him to continue. Three months more, and one day he came just mad, dancing to me, and he said, “Sucking has disappeared, but I am a different man. I am no more the same man who had come to you. Some door has opened within me. Something has broken and there is no desire left. Now I do not want anything - not even God, not even moksha - liberation. I do not want anything. Now everything is okay as it is. I accept it and I am blissful.”

Try this. Just suck something and become the sucking. It may be helpful to many because it is so basic.

This much for today.
