And each individual who enters a school, college, or university should have hypnosis sessions in which he can be encouraged to meditate – so meditation comes from within him, it is not imposed from the outside. It is not compulsory to meditate, but it becomes compulsory to meditate because it is coming from inside oneself. And that is the beauty of hypnosis. It can put the seed in your very heart, and when things come from there you never feel that something has been forced on you. And things like meditation cannot be forced – then there is resentment. But hypnosis is a great art: it can help man drop all kinds of resentment, all kinds of jealousies, hatred, competition. It can clean man’s inner shrine completely – that everybody grows up and does not only grow old.
So when I said the word has to be spread, I meant that the new man is an absolute necessity. The old is dead or is dying…cannot survive long. And if we cannot produce a new human being, then humanity will disappear from the earth – and that will be ugly.
And I told you to spread the word because they are trying every hindrance to keep me from approaching people. I will approach people. They are mediocre politicians: they cannot prevent me. They can delay me, but they cannot stop me unless some idiot goes absolutely mad and kills me.
In that case, you have the word. And if I am not there, your responsibility becomes great. When I am here your responsibility is none; I can do it alone without any difficulty. But if I am not here then your responsibilities tremendously increase. Then each of you has to represent me, and we have to see how many people they can crucify.
But the word has to go on because the word cannot be crucified. Ways and means have to be found for the word to reach to every corner of the earth, to every human being who can understand.
When I heard you talking the other day about the fights between various rival factions in India I felt a moment of sheer awe at the size of the task before us. It seems that everything that human beings identify with is defined by rivalry with others, as if they only exist through the energy of rivalry. And at the root of every rivalry seems to lay a belief system or the corresponding doubt system that they hope to suppress by victory over the rival.
From the largest nation to the smallest human there appears to be an endemic disease which is about to become terminal. Is the psychology of the belief system perhaps the major disorder of mankind?
It is. The walls that divide humanity are made of different belief systems, and all beliefs are false. And man has been sacrificed for false beliefs and these beliefs are political, social, religious. But basically one thing is in all of them – that they are repressing your inquiry into truth, they are forcing into your unconscious any doubt about the concepts that the society wants to propagate, but it does not allow anybody to question it.
Any belief system that is afraid of questioning, inquiry, doubt, simply proves that it has no base in reality. And they are all afraid, greatly afraid: nobody should touch basic questions. You can ask questions about details, but you should not ask questions about their basic tenets, because they don’t have any evidence for them; they are fictions.
