Let the old die. Let the old be led by people like Ronald Reagan. Let the blind people follow the blind.
But those who have a younger spirit – and when I say “a younger spirit,” it includes even those old people who are not old in spirit; and it does not include even the young people who are old in spirit. The spiritually young are going to be the new man.
The new man is not a hope: You are already pregnant with it.
My work is just to make you aware that the new man has already arrived. My work is to help you to recognize him and to respect him.
You are asking, Maneesha: “What is our relationship to the new man?” There is no relationship between you and the new man because you are the new man. You just have to drop all the dust that has gathered down the ages on the mirror of your consciousness.
The new man is not someone coming from another planet. The new man is you in your freshness, in your silences of the heart, in your depth of meditation, in your beautiful spaces of love, in your songs of joy, in your dances of ecstasy, in your love of this earth. No religion teaches you to love this earth – and this earth is your mother, and these trees are your brothers, and these stars are your friends.
You are not going to have a relationship with the new man because that would be a separation; all relationships separate. You are going to be the new man. In my vision you are already on the path of the new man. You have started the journey, although you are not fully awake; but as you will see the old man moving more and more towards the graveyard, it will become easier for you to renounce him and his ways of life, his churches, his synagogues, his temples, his gods, his holy scriptures.
Your holy scripture is your whole life, and nobody else can write it – you have to write it. You come with an empty book, and it depends on you what you make of it. Birth is not life; it is only an opportunity given to you to create life…to create a life as beautiful, as glorious, as loving as you can imagine, as you can dream.
The new man’s dreams and his reality will be one because his dreams will be rooted here in this earth. They will bring flowers and fruits. They will not be just dreams – they will make the world a dreamland.
Realize the responsibility…man has never faced a greater responsibility before: a responsibility to renounce the whole past, to erase it from your being.
Be Adam and Eve again, and let this earth be the Garden of Eden; and this time we will see who the God is who has the guts to drive man out of the Garden of Eden! It is going to be our garden, and if God wants to be in our garden, He will have to knock on our doors.
