Amongst the whole world sleeping, you become awake, and once you are awake there is no problem. Your very awakening will start shifting things to their right places. The head has to be dethroned, and the heart has to be crowned again. This change amongst many people will bring a new society, a New Man in the world. It will change so many things, you cannot conceive.
Science will have a totally different flavor. It will not serve death anymore, it will not make weapons that are going to kill the whole of life on the earth. It will make life richer, discover energies which can make man more fulfilled, which can make man live in comfort, in luxury, because the values will have completely changed. It will still be mind functioning, but under the direction of the heart.
My way is the way of meditation.
I have to use language, unfortunately, that’s why I say may way is the way of meditation: Neither of head nor of heart, but of a growing consciousness which is above both mind and heart.
This is the key to open the doors for a New Man to arrive on the earth.
I was brought up as a Quaker, and we were told never to swear on a Bible in court, because as Quakers we could only speak the truth, and that the source of our truth was silence. This is so close to what you say, I am surprised when you say you don’t agree with the theology of Quakerism.
I am also surprised.
The first thing: Quakerism is part of Christian theology. I have never said anything against Quakerism, but you are forcing me to now.
It is a by-product of Christian theology, and I am against all theologies. Quakerism is not an independent religion, but just a sect of Christianity. It accepts all kinds of stupidities that are propounded by Jesus and his theologians. It is not against The Bible – and The Bible is so full of rubbish, lies.
The basic lie is God, the holy ghost, Jesus the only begotten son of God. Lies upon lies – a virgin birth, resurrection after being crucified. Quakerism does not deny all these things, it accepts them.
Secondly, you are saying you have been told not to take oath upon The Bible in the court. I have also said that the oath is absolutely unnecessary. A man who is capable of lying – no oath can prevent him. And to take an oath placing your hand on The Bible is hilarious. The Bible is so full of lies, and you are taking an oath for truth – that you will not speak anything but truth!
My reason not to take an oath on any religious scripture is totally different from that of the Quakers. The Quakers believe – remember, they believe: I know. You have been told: I have seen.
And the difference is infinite between being told and experiencing it on your own.
