And it is so much that it is difficult to contain it; one starts sharing the joy….
A drunk is standing at the bar one day, when he turns to the man on his right and says, “Did you pour beer in my trouser pocket?”
The man says, “I certainly did not.”
Then the drunk turns to the man on his left, and says, “Did you pour beer in my trouser pocket?”
The man says, “I most certainly did not pour beer in your trouser pocket.”
“Just as I thought,” says the drunk, “an inside job.”
You are asking me what is happening? It is an inside job. Enjoy!
It is our mental training always to look for some cause somewhere outside. Our whole training is meant to be for outer exploration. Even if the stars are so far away that there seems to be no possibility ever to be in contact with those faraway stars, billions of light years away, still there are thousands of scientists around the world who are wasting their lives finding out some way to have contact with other planetary beings.
In America – I have just remembered what I am going to say to you – sitting in the court, listening to the government attorney…He had a list of thirty-four crimes that I had committed. The truth is, I cannot even remember those thirty-four crimes. In fact many times I forget whether there were thirty-four or thirty-five. One time I even reached the number sixty-five!
The man was very seriously insisting to the judge, and finally he said the first crime was that I had come to America as a tourist, but with an inner intention to remain there forever. I wondered, in what way can anybody know my inner intention? And if my inner intention is a crime, then what about the dreams in which you have killed people, raped women? There is no way to prove what my inner intentions are.
And the second thing he said was that I had arranged thousands of marriages in America. For three and a half years I was silent and I was not meeting people; I was living in isolation. I wondered, from where is he getting these figures? Thousands of marriages I have arranged and I have not been able even to arrange my own marriage? This man seems to be absolutely mad! A man who has failed even to arrange his own marriage is being charged with arranging thousands of marriages.
