So remember, whenever I say something or I give a message to you, it is simply to destroy your bondage, your chains, your imprisonment. I am not shaping your being, I am simply deprogramming you. Your being is already there, covered under so many programs – Christian, Hindu, Mohammedan, communist.
You are almost like an onion, layers upon layers. My message is: start peeling those layers. And when you come to the very center of the onion there will be just nothingness in your hands, silence. From that silence, from that nothingness, everything becomes possible – and you need not do anything.
Just as the seed, finding the right soil, starts changing into a sprout…. The seed dies – its death is absolutely necessary for the birth of the plant. And soon there will be a lush green bush full of flowers and fragrance.
But your seed has been covered with so many layers of culture, etiquette, education, religion, country, that you have completely forgotten that you are here to grow, that you have to become a lush green bush full of flowers, fragrance, dancing in the wind and in the rain and in the sun. To me, that is religiousness.
The guide is only a friend, to help you discover yourself. I am certainly not your leader. At the most, a friend, and that too, not against your will. I have not come to you – you have come to me. I am not going anywhere. The thirsty have to come to the well. There is a saying of Mohammed, that if the thirsty cannot come to the well, then Mohammed is going to the thirsty. That is the language of the leader.
The well simply remains available. You have thirst – the well has water. You are always welcome, but the well is not going to force you, tell you, “You have to drink.” It is your freedom to drink or not to drink.
I have made myself available to the whole world. Now, those who feel some kind of synchronicity with me, those in whose hearts bells start ringing…I am not responsible for it. And if they start coming to me, I cannot refuse them.
My message is to discover yourself.
I am not your ideal; you are not to become like me. You are not to have faith in me – that will not help. You will have to do hard work for transformation, and each will have to do it according to his need. I can help in many ways.
All my messages are letters from a friend. Accept them or not – that is up to you. There is no enforcement.
