Not only that I am illogical; I am illogically here.
And those who want to be argumentative with me will be at a loss. They cannot defeat me, because I am not trying to convince them and I am not trying to prove anything. I am not interested in converting you; I am just interested in giving you something that I have. If you are ready, open, en rapport with me, you can receive it. Otherwise later on you will repent very much.
A drunk staggered into a crowded pub, pushed his way through the customers and approached the bar. Finding a man and woman in his way, he brushed them aside, pushed the woman rudely aside, elbowed his way through to the counter and belched loudly. The man he had just pushed past turned to him angrily.
“How dare you push through like that and belch in front of my wife!” he said indignantly.
The drunk looked apologetic.
“I am sorry to belch in front of your dear lady,” he said. “I didn’t realize it was her turn.”
I am like that drunk: you cannot corner me.
That’s what I am doing with your questions. What answer I give is not important – try to see that I am destroying your question. My answer is not an answer but a strategy to destroy your question. There are people who answer your questions, they give you certain ideas, they fill you with certain ideologies, theories, dogmas, cults…I am not answering your question that way. If you watch, if you are aware, you will be able to see that I try to destroy your question. Not that you receive the answer, but that you lose the question.
If someday you become questionless, that will be the point of realization. Not that you will have any answer: you will not have any questions; that’s all. You can call it “the answer,” when there is no question.
A buddha is not a man who has all the answers; a buddha is a man who has no questions. The questioning has disappeared – the questioning has become absurd, irrelevant. He is simply there without any question. That’s what I mean when I say he is a no-mind. Mind always questions, mind is a questioning; as leaves come out of the trees, questions come out of the mind. Old leaves fall, new leaves come; old questions disappear, new questions come.
I would like to uproot this whole tree.
If I am giving you any answer, then many more questions will arise out of it. Your mind will convert that answer into many questions.
