I understand perfectly well why you are driving us, slowly slowly, to be independent of your physical presence, but I wonder how. The other day you said that you have your own methods. I trust you totally, and I know that you will not hurt the delicate veil between us and you; and if you do, it is because something is missing in our journey. But I cannot avoid thinking and being worried: “How will he” – you – “move away from our beings?” Beloved one, you are the king of the world now, and your coming to India to me is a tremendous analogy to Jesus coming back to Jerusalem. Is it true?
The moment you cross the boundaries of personality the consciousness is one.
It can be of Gautam Buddha, it can be of Jesus Christ, it can be of Chuang Tzu. These names are names of the personalities. These names have nothing to do with the beyond, with the pure consciousness. It is always the same: wherever superconsciousness exists, it is Jesus coming back to Jerusalem.
I understand your fear, because you do not understand my method. It appears to you as if there is only one way of disappearing so that I am no longer a hindrance to you, and that is by leaving you alone. That’s why I have said I have my own methods.
I can merge in you; I can allow you to merge in me. We need not be two. We can become one, and the hindrance disappears. The idea that the hindrance has to be removed is very crude; there is no need to remove it. If you are ready, you can merge with me. If you are afraid, I can merge with you.
The basic question is that the gate of the paradise is very narrow and only one can enter – two cannot enter together. Now it is not my fault! – simply old architecture.
As a Christian I was taught, “Jesus loves you and lives within you.” I could never find him – not within me, not within others, not in churches – not to mention God, whose house a church is supposed to be. Now I’ve met you. I feel your love; and seeing others, I feel something in them. Yesterday I saw you in the house. I didn’t even have to look for you; you were just there. When I trust, everything goes wonderfully. Is it you who enters me, who comes in?
It is your trust that creates miracles. Nobody else can create a miracle for you, but your trust is the source of all miracles.
You were brought up as a Christian; that is a misfortune, but nobody can avoid it. If you had not been brought up as a Christian, you would have been brought up as a Hindu, as a Mohammedan, as a Jew – and all these diseases have the same quality of destroying you and your trust. In fact to destroy your trust is to destroy you.
Because you were brought up as a Christian, you were told that Jesus loves you, Jesus is in you. But these were words told to you, not your experiences. They were false; they never tallied with your own understanding, intelligence, intuition. Still, you had to believe in them because everybody else believed in them. Not to believe in them would have created many kinds of troubles.
