That point is the goal of all religions, the goal of all yogas, the goal of all prayers, all meditations, the goal of Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism – the goal of all the seekers. Because once you have become one, your misery disappears.
Misery is because of the conflict. Misery is because your house is divided, misery is because you are not one, you are a crowd – a thousand and one voices inside you pulling you and pushing you in all sorts of ways and all directions.
You are a mess, a chaos. It is a miracle how you manage not to go mad, because you are boiling with madness. It is a miracle how somehow you go on remaining sane, how you are not lost into this crowd. But whether lost or not, you are sitting on a volcano which can erupt any moment.
Remember this: madness is not something that happens to a few unfortunate people, madness is something everybody is prone to. Madness is something which you are carrying within you like a seed – it can sprout any moment; it is only waiting for the right season, the right climate, the right opportunity. Any small thing can trigger it and you – you simply go berserk. You are berserk because your foundation is split. It is possible to become one but then one has to be very aware about this whole situation.
I have heard:
Mulla Nasruddin went to his psychiatrist and asked if the good doctor could not split his personality.
“Split your personality?” asked the doctor. “Why in heaven’s name do you want me to do a thing like that?”
“Because,” said Mulla Nasruddin, “I am so lonesome. Because I feel so lonely.”
Don’t just laugh at it. Maybe that’s why you never work hard to become one unity, because this duality gives you a certain company. You can talk with yourself, you can have a dialogue – everybody is having a dialogue, continuously. Sitting in your chair, what are you doing when you close your eyes? The continuous dialogue is there. You question, you answer, from this side, from that side.
Watch this dialogue. If this dialogue stops will you not feel very lonesome? Will you not feel very alone? Will you not feel very empty if this dialogue stops? Will you not suddenly feel that all noise has disappeared? Will you not become frightened that only silence is there?
No, you go on feeding this dialogue. You go on helping this dialogue to be there. Either you are talking with others, or if it is not possible because others are not always available, then you are talking with yourself. While you are awake you are talking with others, while you are asleep you are talking with yourself.
