Chapter 72: Start Living in Insecurity

Transcendence means going beyond duality. Attachment means remaining within duality, attached to one against the other. When you accept both or reject both, attachment falls. Your tie is unlocked. Suddenly you float into a third dimension of being, where neither life is nor death. That is nirvana, that is moksha - where both the dualities are not, but oneness, isness, is. And unless you transcend, you will always be in misery.

You can change your attachment from this to that, but you will be in misery. Attachment creates misery. Rejection also creates misery. Whatsoever you choose, it is up to you. You can choose a positive path, like Krishna. He says “Accept. Accept both.” Or you can choose a path like Buddha, who says, “Reject both.” But do something with both together, then transcendence follows immediately. Even if you think of both, there will be transcendence. And if you can do it in real life, a new being is born. That being doesn’t belong to the earth of duality, that being belongs to an unknown realm - the realm of nirvana.
