Chapter 13: Inner Centering

When you are not the body, then you have to create a different life. That life is the sannyasin’s life. It is a different life; the center is different now. Now you exist in the world as a soul, as an atman, not as a body. If you exist as a body, then you have created a different world: of material gain, greed, gratification, lust, sex. You have created a world around you; this is the body-oriented world.

Once you know you are not the body, your whole world disappears. You cannot support it any more. A different world arises which is around the soul - a world of compassion, of love, of beauty, of truth, of goodness, of innocence. The center is shifted, and it is not in the body now. It is in the consciousness.

Enough for today.
