If you become more and more conscious, let-go will happen and yet you will be here and now, and more than ever before. You will eat and you will taste more. You will love and you will have deeper orgasmic experiences. You will play and your play will have something of the spiritual in it. Your ordinary life will become sacred.
Only one thing has to be introduced: witnessing.
The second question:
I am feeling more and more that this life is something magical. Is this how you see life? Is this what you mean by the godliness all about us?
Yes, that’s precisely what I mean. By “God” I don’t mean a person. By “God” I mean the magic that surrounds you, the mysterious, the miraculous. By “God” I don’t mean anybody who created the world, but creation itself. The very process of creativity is God.
Hence you cannot worship God, you cannot pray to God. All prayers are false because they are addressed to a personal God – and there is no personal God. You cannot relate to God, calling him “father,” “mother.” He is not a person; relationship is not possible. Then how to worship, how to pray? You will have to learn new ways of praying and worshipping.
To be creative is to worship. To be creative is to participate in the great process of creation – and participating in creativity is participating in God. For a moment you are transported. When you are painting something you are no longer there; you have become just a creative force. When you are playing music, if you are not just a technician but really a musician, a lover of music, then you disappear – then the ego is no longer there. At least for those few rare, diamondlike moments, immensely precious, some windows open. You are no longer there, not as an ego.
God is not a person, he is not an ego. And if you want to meet God you will have to be something similar: a non-ego, a non-person. God is a presence. If you want to have any communion with God you will have to learn how to be just a presence and not a person; alert, fully alert, but without any idea of “I.”
And the best way to let this “I” disappear is not through austerities, yoga, fasting – no. It is through creativity. I teach you the yoga of creativity, because to me that is the only yoga. The word yoga means union; when you are creative you are in a state of union with God. Standing on your head is not going to help much, in fact it is not going to help at all. You can stand on you head for lives – it will do only one thing: it will make you stupid!
