And if the mind becomes clear that it is not your friend, it stops creating a rift between you and your real nature. A day comes when the mind simply drops because now its function is no longer there. And then your life – those twenty-four hours a day – are of love, are of peace, are of silence, are of great joy.
Mind is the worst creation that society has put in every individual.
People ask me why I am against society, why I am against religions, the status quo, the establishment. I am against them because these are the people who have been destroying millions of people for thousands of years, giving them a mask and telling them, “This is your real face.”
And millions have lived on the earth and died without ever encountering their own face. They have not known what they were supposed to be; they have not known what potentiality they have to actualize. They have not known that they are part of an ecstatic existence – not part of a rotten society.
So pay more attention to those moments, and don’t pay any attention to the mind. And slowly the mind will become weaker, because it is unnatural, forced; it has no roots in you. And that which is natural and has roots in you will come up automatically; just the mind has to give space.
Neglect the mind.
Ignore the mind.
And it becomes a tremendous meditation.
Is it never a violation to gaze into your eyes? Sometimes it feels like an intrusion, and I pull myself back – even though I would like to jump right in.
It is a strange phenomenon.
The psychologists who have been working on it have come to know that if you gaze into somebody’s eyes for more than three seconds, he will feel offended. Just to have a look and go on your way is acceptable, but to look more than three seconds means you have taken a certain interest in the person, and it is an intrusion. It is interfering with his very private world. And the eyes are the most living part of his body, and most expressive part of his body.
A man can look with lust in his eyes, a man can look with anger in his eyes, a man can look with sadness in his eyes, a man can look with all kinds of emotions. The eyes are very sensitive. So in the society it has not been thought right.
But to be with a master is to go against the society. And looking at the eyes of the master is neither lust nor anger not sadness; it is a pure looking.
Secondly, the master is there to be available to you. There is no question of intrusion, you cannot interfere.
The master has no secrets to hide from you, no private world of his own that he would not like anybody to know. He is an open book – you can read it from the first page to the last. And his eyes are also different from other eyes.
