No one asks, “why?” except human beings. So no one else is in any anxiety at all. The human mind becomes anxious: he creates questions and then he supplies answers. The questions are meaningless; hence the answers are even more meaningless. But because we can fabricate questions, we cannot be at ease unless we find answers. So we go on finding answers, creating answers. If you see this whole nonsense – questions and answers, our questions and our answers, a great monologue, human mind in monologue with itself…. Even if you are asking me and I am answering you, it is the human mind asking and the human mind answering. It is just a hide-and-seek of the same mind. It makes no difference who is asking and who is answering.
The human mind questions and the human mind answers. We have created such a great mass of answers and questions, and not a single question has been answered. The questions remain where they always were. If you can see this whole procession of questions and answers, this meaningless effort, fruitless, leading nowhere – if you become aware of this whole nonsense as if in a flash of lightning – then you can laugh, laugh at the stupidity of the human mind. And the moment there is laughter you transcend the human mind completely. Then there is no question, and then there is no answer. Then you live. There is no purpose, and there is no cause. Then living in itself is enough.
You ask, so I answer you, – but I myself cannot ask any question. As far as I am concerned, there is no answer and there is no question. I go on living just like waves in the ocean, or just like leaves on the trees, or just like clouds in the sky – without any question and without any answer. And the moment I became aware of this whole absurdity of questioning, something fell completely – totally. It was a resurrection. I was reborn, reborn in a cosmic dimension: not as an “I” – reborn in a cosmic dimension.
In this cosmic dimension everything is a play. Once you understand – not only understand, but realize that all is play – you are at ease; completely, absolutely. Then there is no tension. Then you are relaxed; there is no ego.
The ego cannot relax. It lives on tensions, it feeds on tensions. Then there is no ego, then there is no tension, then you are – all inclusive. Then there is no past, and then there is no future. You are eternity. Then anything that happens is happening, it is not that you are doing it. It is not that something is to be fulfilled through it. These are all illusory notions. And even religious people will think in these terms – of “doing something.” Then the ego has become settled and pious, and more dangerous. If the ego is there, the doer is there, the “doing” is there. Only objects have changed, but the process is the same.
To me…and when I refer to “me” there is no one who is referred to, it is only a linguistic device in order that you may understand. I say “to me,” otherwise there is no one who can be referred to as “me” or “you.” But then language will be impossible. That is why truth cannot be expressed in language. It cannot take any linguistic form, because language is created by those who are not – the “untrue ones,” the nonexistential ones. The mythical egos have created a language. It comes out of ego, it can never transcend it. So even if you know that there is no one to be referred to as “me” or “I” you have to use it in language. And I remind you that there is no one.
