If we are in total intensity, in total sincerity, we are here and now. Then all is achieved. It is so close that we need not go anywhere, but just relax. Relaxation is the peak. If you can relax utterly and remain aware, then there are no holds, no hindrances, but gaps. The gaps are immense, you can use them as stepping stones towards godliness.
I am here, so no need to be afraid. I am absolutely unafraid.
I have transformed your room into a Noah’s Ark. It is so and it will always remain so.
The Upanishads have this prayer:
take us from darkness to light,
from untruth to truth,
from death to deathlessness….”
This, this is what they are praying for.
The word in Sanskrit is prah, from which the Hindi prarthana comes. Excuse me, for a moment I fell into an old habit, because English to me is still a foreign language. It can never be very close to me. Although I have spoken millions of words in English it still doesn’t mean it is close to my heart. It is my only foreign language, but my real language is the language of silence, and “prayer” in Sanskrit comes closest.
Yes, Sanskrit comes closest…Hebrew a little, but no modern language…. English, particularly, does not come close; in fact it has gone the farthest. It is not their fault. It is the language for measurement and technical accuracy. They have to make it a reality, a reality of technology, of science. So don’t be worried if I halted in saying “prayer.”
Don’t be worried about my language, my grammar. I am not a man of language, not a logician at all. I am a man of silence who only speaks out of necessity…of necessity because nobody speaks the language of the real. Everybody speaks of everything else, endlessly about everything except the real. Hence I have to speak. In the whole world there are very few who know, who can understand, who can speak of the real.
All the great speakers are deaf. I am not a great speaker but I am certainly deaf. But what is happening now is so very beautiful I don’t want to hear anything. My consciousness is beyond, far away beyond the clouds. I can hear you saying, “Stop, the time is over.” Time is never over, cannot be.
