Chapter 3: Let Yourself Be a Mystery
“Don’t be a jerk,” the parrot replied. “Just think of the odds you’ll get tomorrow.”
Just wait for tomorrow. My own experience is, every day brings so much that when I think retrospectively I cannot conceive that I could have expected it - and it always brings in abundance! Existence is so compassionate and so sharing, but only to those who don’t demand. Desirelessness is the foundation of all great happenings.
Just wait in trust and everything that existence has will be revealed to you.
The Lone Ranger is about to be hanged by rustlers who caught him spying on their camp. His only hope is Tonto who managed to escape and go for help. As the bandits are putting the noose around the Lone Ranger’s neck, he sees three horses approaching at a gallop. Sure enough, as they get closer, he can see that it is Tonto on the first horse, but he can’t make out who the other two riders are.
The Lone Ranger finally sees that Tonto is riding with two beautiful naked women. The riders burst into the robbers’ camp and Tonto rides up to the Lone Ranger saying, “Kemosabe, I have returned with the people you asked me to get.”
“Tonto, you idiot,” says the Lone Ranger, “I told you to go get a posse!”
It is better not to ask for anything; otherwise, there is always frustration.
Don’t ask, and you will be fulfilled.
Just trust silently and wait, and miracles are always happening to the meditators. The greatest miracle is the revelation of the mystery of oneself.
You are perfectly on the right path. Beware of your mind - it will try to disturb you, to distract you, to create doubts. Just put it aside. This great affair has nothing to do with the mind.
