Now these things look absurd – because we don’t know, because we don’t know the language. For three days he would remain in the forest. He would sit under one tree, under another tree, and he would talk to trees – and he was a madman! But a tree is to be judged by its fruit, and this master has also to be judged by his creation. A few of his chairs still survive in China – they still carry a magnetism. You will just be simply attracted, you will not know what is pulling you. After a thousand years…something tremendously beautiful.
He said, “I go and I inquire: I am in search of a tree who wants to become a chair. I ask the trees if they are willing – not only willing, cooperating with me, ready to go with me – only then. Sometimes it happens that no tree is ready to become a chair; I come empty-handed.”
It happened that the emperor of China asked him to make him a stand for his books. And he went, and after three days he said, “Wait…no tree is ready to come to the palace.”
After three months the emperor again inquired. The carpenter said, “I have been going continuously. I am persuading. Wait…one tree seems to be leaning a little bit.”
Then he persuaded one tree. He said, “The whole art is there, when the tree comes of its own accord. Then she is simply asking the help of the carpenter.”
You can go and ask Asheesh. He has a feel for wood, and wood also has a feel for him.
If you are loving you will see that the whole existence has individuality. Don’t pull and push things. Watch, communicate, take their help – and much energy will be preserved.
Even trees are creative, rocks are creative. You are man, the very culmination of this existence. You are at the top, you are conscious. Never think with wrong beliefs and never be attached to wrong beliefs that you are uncreative. Maybe your father said to you that you are uncreative, your colleagues said to you that you are uncreative. Maybe you were searching in wrong directions, in directions in which you are not creative, but there must be a direction in which you are creative. Seek and search and remain available, and go on groping – unless you find it.
Each man comes into this world with a specific destiny: he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally, you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.
The second question – it is from Hareesh:
A white and small aura is visible just over your head. Why is not a colored one visible?
