If the people of the whole earth simply refuse and say, “We are not going to fight, there is no point in it,” if they refuse and say, “We don’t want boundaries of nations. If there is going to be no war, why keep these boundaries? What purpose do these boundaries serve?”…. If the people of the world force their governments and say, “Disperse all your armies. Let those people be creative….”
Millions of people around the earth, in the army, are just doing nothing. In fact, they are hankering for war. They are not meditators who can just sit silently, doing nothing, and the grass grows by itself. They are very ordinary people. To keep them holding their guns, watching their nuclear missiles…. How long can you keep them in this situation? Sooner or later, they will find it is better now to start – “We are tired and bored….”
This is an established fact, that during the war people are less sad, more excited, happier than they are in peaceful times, because so much is going on. Every moment brings new news; excitement is natural.
Human history can be divided in two parts: first when there is war; second, when they are preparing for a new war. There has never been a period of real peace. Preparing for war is cold war – getting ready, because the last has taken so much, destroyed so much, that you have to prepare again. Within ten to twenty years’ time they are again ready, the weapons are ready, the enemies are there.
If really they mean what they say, then take the preliminary steps. The first is to dissolve boundaries, dissolve passports and green cards. The world, the whole earth is ours. Wherever we want to be, it is nobody’s business to prevent us. Let there be freedom of movement. Let all the races, all the nations get mixed. And once the boundaries are not there, they will get mixed, they will spread all over the world – all kinds of races – and it will be a great experiment in crossbreeding. We will have better generations to come.
It is not enough to save the coming generations from war, if they are simply carbon copies of you. What is the point? If they are carbon copies of you, they will do the same as you have been doing. A New Man is needed, a New Man who feels the whole earth is his mother – not small segments of it.
Do you see? You call your land your motherland, and you have cut the mother into so many pieces – is your mother alive still? You are carrying only limbs of your mother. Somebody has taken the leg, somebody has taken the head….
I am reminded of a religious master. He had two disciples – just as every democracy has two political parties. Those disciples were competing in every way to get more attention from the master. And the question basically was, who is going to succeed the master? – he was getting old. So both were trying their best to serve the master, to follow the master, to practice the discipline that the master has given. But the motivation was neither the discipline nor the principles. They were not concerned with the master at all.
One summer day the master was sleeping, and they were not going to lose any opportunity. So they both were massaging the legs of the master. He was tired, naturally – he had come from a long journey. One was working on the left leg, the other was working on the right leg. The master was asleep.
