If this world exists, good; if it does not exist, better. But why should I be puzzled about it? It is my joy, and this joy is not the kind which makes people serious.
I have looked into Dada’s books before; his famous book is Beyond the Mind. Strange that a man who knows beyond mind should be frustrated…. Who can be frustrated? No-mind has never been heard to be frustrated. And he thinks he has given up the idea, and this is his disagreement with me. He has given up the idea; I never had the idea. And whatever he is saying is just a repetition of J. Krishnamurti.
J. Krishnamurti has left many orphans in the world, illegitimate children, because he never accepted them as his disciples. But deep down they enjoyed the idea that without being a disciple they are gathering so much wisdom. Soon all of them have become masters. I have come across many masters who have never been disciples. It is simply ego.
With J. Krishnamurti’s idea that “nobody is my disciple,” you feel relaxed: this is great you don’t have to love this man, you don’t know the beauties of grace that exist between the master and the disciple. You enjoy only one thing: the ego that you are nobody’s disciple. And then these who are nobody’s disciples start collecting disciples – and of all that they are saying, not a single thing is original; it is all borrowed.
I have told Hasya and Kaveesha that when Dada comes here, “Encounter him and put him right. He is misguiding many people.”
I am a man who lives moment to moment, and I want those who love me to learn the art of living moment to moment. What happens tomorrow we will see tomorrow. At least one thing is certain: whatever happens, our blissfulness, our ecstasy, our dance, our song will continue – if not on this planet, then on another planet.
There are millions of solar systems, and each solar system has hundreds of planets, each planet has many moons. Our earth is very poor, with just one moon. Our sun is mediocre; it is six thousand times bigger than the earth, but compared to other suns, which are millions of times bigger than this sun, it stands nowhere in the queue.
What is the problem? We have not asked this planet to be born; it was existence’s decision to be here. Why should one worry if existence wants us to take our song and our music and our consciousness to another planet? We will be there…one thing is certain: this commune is going to exist. The whole existence is there….
Ronald Reagan cannot manage to destroy the universe. This poor earth will be destroyed…that too is possible if existence deep down wills to destroy it. Or perhaps the earth itself has become old, tired, fed up with all kinds of nonsense that man has been doing, and it wants to go into eternal sleep. It is a living being.
