Hello. I have many questions to ask you about many different things and the first is: “How are you?”
I am always the same, just fine.
Just fine? Okay.
How do you think the world sees you?
To me everything is very simple; I never do anything that is not spontaneous. I just live in the moment: no attachment to the past moment, no projection for the future moment. I am always here now. These two words here now contain the whole of existence.
And after Albert Einstein, they are not even two words. It is one reality – space and time are four dimensions of the same reality. Time has three dimensions, space has one dimension; here has one dimension, now has three dimensions. But within these two words, everything is included. Einstein had to make a new word, because to express it exactly it is not good to use two words – that gives a sense of duality. So he invented the technical word, spacio-time.
I have also made my own word: nowhere – just one word, not even a hyphen between now and here.
In a few words, could you comment on the word that I am going to give you? For example, what does love say to you?
It means three things. Love can exist as just a physiological relationship – then we call it sex, and most people go on believing that that is love. It is only the beginning.
The second thing that can be called love is something deeper, psychological – what poets talk about, what musicians sing about. It has nothing to do with sex, it is just a magnetic attraction between two persons. Something transpires between two persons – they suddenly feel as if they are made for each other. Something almost gives them the sense, “Without the other I am half, incomplete; with the other I’m complete.” A sense of completion is the second quality; a sense of being entire, the whole circle.
