Chapter 8: The Essence of Existence

A flute song of soft, delicate rays,
A flute song like the sandalwood fragrance in the garden of the gods,
A melodious voice like yours,
This devoted learning of sound,
Instrumental music like the beats
Of a heart drenched with love.
Come, swaying, and we will lose ourselves on the soft waves.
Come, let us make our bed out of the moonlight.

Let go of the definitions of God, the proofs for God, meaningless contemplations about God. God cannot be thought about. Come, let us be without thoughts, let us live God, let us experience godliness.

Here, I am not defining God. If a longing has awakened in your heart I can hold your hand and take you to that sacred place, but don’t come to me as a student, a student’s eagerness is just to increase knowledge a little more. Come to me as a seeker. The seeker’s thirst is for something else, something very different from the student’s. The seeker asks, “How to experience this?” The student asks, “How can I increase my knowledge a little more?” The student wants to decorate his memory. The seeker wants to illuminate his life.

Come, let us make our bed out of the moonlight,
Cover ourselves with it, wear it.

The experience will come, and then this very experience is the description of the ultimate reality. When you will see, in that very seeing you will find a proof for all the scriptures. You will be a witness to the Vedas, to the Upanishads, and to the Koran. Become the witness. Become the proof. Don’t ask for proof of the existence of God - you yourself can be the proof. Then your presence will be enough. There are certain things that are never said, they are only revealed.

Someone asked Ramakrishna for proof of God and Ramakrishna said, “Me, I am the proof of God!”

This is not the language of a philosopher or a thinker, this is the language of one who has experienced: “I am the proof!”

When Vivekananda asked Ramakrishna, “Does God exist? Can you prove God to me?” Ramakrishna said, “Stop this useless prattle. Do you want to meet God? Then ask for that. Don’t ask whether God exists or not. Do you want to know God? I can show you. Do you want to know right now?”
