And the mind has to be very subtle, because Amitabh’s love for me is tremendous. But as the moment of death comes close, the mind freaks out. And Amitabh will not listen to the mind, hence the mind has to take support from the body. And the body is always following the mind. If the mind wants to create a certain illness, the body is simply to submit to the mind, surrender to the mind.
Ninety percent of diseases are now known to be mind created, mind oriented. Many diseases that happen here around me are more or less mind created. You want a valid reason to escape, and any small thing won’t do because your love for me is great. Something really dangerous has to be created. Your life is at risk, only then you will go.
On one plane your mind says, “I’m not up to it. Stop, it is enough. Go slowly!” But there are a few things which can only be done in a sudden blow, in a single blow. The slower you go, the more painful they are. It is better to cut the knot with a single blow of the sword rather than going very slowly and making the whole process unnecessarily painful.
Secondly: you are aware of another plane, too. Your heart says, “This is what you need. You need a death, because only after death a resurrection is possible. The old has to cease for the new to be.” The mind has to go for the heart to take total possession of your being.
Hence you feel gratitude, you feel joy, you feel great thankfulness. And you understand that for you to grow it is needed that all these things – attachments, possessiveness, jealousy, fear of death, distrust – have to be dropped. They are ugly. They are hanging around you. They are parasites; they suck your blood. They don’t allow you freedom. They don’t allow you the impossible.
But in those rare, crystal clear moments when the heart is functioning as a master and not as a slave, you know: “A sense comes that all is possible.”
Yes, all is possible, even the impossible is possible…because what I am really trying to do is put you in order. You are in a disorder. Everything is there but upside down. Things have to be put right side up, things have to be rearranged.
You have all that can create the orchestra, but everybody is trying to play on his instrument within you as if it is not an orchestra but everybody is a solo performer. The flute player is playing his flute with no idea of what others are doing. The sitar player is playing his sitar with no connection with the flute. The tabla player is playing the tabla absolutely unaware of the flute and the sitar, and so on and so forth. They are doing all that they can do, but they are only creating a chaos, a noise, which is destructive. They all have to be put in tune with each other, and then the same noise will become a great music.
Yes, Amitabh, all is possible, because you are carrying within you a buddha. Amitabh is one of the names of buddha: it means infinite light. In the East we love to give many names to those who have arrived home. Each name represents a certain aspect.
