I am against organization. It has a hierarchy, it moves from the lowest to the highest in a vertical line. Organism is a circle, not a vertical line; no hierarchy, a circle. Nobody is higher than anybody else. And the circle has a center and that center is the source of energy for all, for all the organs which make the circle.
Every living thing is an organism. Every dead thing is an organization. I would like my people to be an organism. And they are turning, slowly, slowly. It is natural, because they have come from a world – they have carried with them thousands of years of conditioning. It takes time for them to drop it, but they are dropping it.
There was a question, two, three days before. The questioner was asking me, “Before you started speaking, there was continuous hammering from the higher-ups in the commune to be positive, to be this, to be that. Since you started speaking, those hammerings have stopped. Nobody is telling us to be positive, but strangely enough, everybody is more positive than he was ever before, more loving, more in tune.”
The difference is that I am not higher up, I am not in a vertical line from where I order you. I am amongst you, just in the middle, at the very center of the commune. I need not order. I can just be there and that will be enough for everybody else to function positively. They can take the energy, they can take the insight.
Of course they are not yet capable of understanding it in silence, but they have become capable of understanding words. Soon they will be capable of understanding the wordless presence too.
So, since I started speaking, they suddenly became a totally different group. They were an organization because I was silent, and the people who were responsible for running the commune had no other way than to say to you, “Do this. Don’t do that.” They cannot be condemned for that; there was no other way. They are just people like you.
With me things are different. The moment I started speaking again, came back into the center – became the center of your existence, of your thinking, of your being, of your dancing, of everything – naturally you started functioning the way you should function. There is no need to say it. You love me and out of that love arises your action. How can it be negative?
I love you. You know it, you feel it – how can you act in any negative way? Then to be positive needs no effort. You simply are positive; nobody has told you to be.
So when I say I am against organization, my meaning is that humanity has lived in the form of organization – the hierarchy, the bureaucracy – and all those efforts have led nowhere except into more and more misery.
