This night, curl up in bed, cry and weep, and don’t let the head interfere. And by the morning you will be so fresh. You will have learned something from death. This is a precious moment – when the father or the mother dies. It is a sacred moment and you can be enriched through it. You can attain much through it; it can become a great insight. So don’t waste it, mm? This night you try – and I am going to help! Good.
Participants from the Enlightenment Intensive are present tonight.
I’ve just done the meditation camp and three groups in a row. It is too much to think about. I can’t analyze it.
No, there is no need for analysis. That’s why I wanted you to go so fast – so there is no gap for thinking to come in. Analysis is not needed; it is not going to help. Analysis is a way to avoid life – then you don’t live it, you think about it. You think you love a woman, but you don’t love her – you think about loving her. You think that you love her and the whole thing becomes false. You can deceive others, but you will be wasting your energy. Analysis is a disease of the mind; it will give you false ideas. If you analyze love, you will reduce it to something ridiculous. If you analyze life, then you will have chemicals and nothing else. If you analyze a beautiful flower, the beauty will disappear and only matter will be left in the hand. All that is true, all that is beautiful, all that is good, escapes analysis.
That’s why Freud goes on analyzing. He starts thinking about love and only sex is left – love disappears. Analyze a poem and prose will be left, because there are things which simply escape analysis. So don’t do that. That’s why I wanted you to do one thing after another – so fast that there would be no interval and you couldn’t think. That’s why you are feeling great. Feel great – and don’t try to analyze it. Good, it has been good!
There was a wonderful and exhilarating feeling during the group. A very sudden change.
You look as if it has been very good. You still carry the climate of it. I received your letter…. Very good.
