Chapter 6: Wings for Your Freedom
Even those who were enlightened have become only a tradition, a convention, a dead belief. You have to be freed from their grip too, because they cannot help you, they can only hinder your path. They can become your chains, but they cannot become your freedom.
I can become your freedom. I am your freedom.
When I am gone I hope there may still be courageous people in the world to criticize me, so that I don’t become a hindrance on anybody’s path. And those who will criticize me will not be my enemies; neither am I the enemy of those whom I have criticized. The working of the enlightened masters just has to be understood.
You should remember only one word, and that is compassion - compassion for you, compassion for all those who are still not centered in their being, who are still far away from themselves, who have to be called back home.
