Devageet’s old age is the same. Let him remain old but don’t believe his old age. He can get anybody’s monthly problem stopped. He is simply pretending to be old.
Am I moving rightly or am I just a hopeless nutcase?
Your question is very significant, because in this world everybody is moving rightly except the nuts – at least that’s what the whole humanity believes.
The reality is just the contrary: the whole of humanity is a nutcase, and only a few nuts escape from this madhouse you call the world.
It happened once…
Kahlil Gibran’s one friend became mad. He was a very great poet, thinker of a high caliber, a genius. When Kahlil Gibran heard he came back to Lebanon. He was born in Lebanon, he was brought up in Lebanon, he was a Lebanese. But then he went to America and he spent his whole life in America.
Hearing about his friend in Lebanon he came back to see him; he went to the madhouse. His friend was sitting alone in the park of the madhouse on a bench. He looked at Kahlil Gibran but did not pay much attention, did not even show that he has recognized him. Kahlil Gibran said, “Don’t you recognize me?”
He said, “I recognize everybody. But what are you doing here? With great difficulty I have been able to leave that mad world and enter into this peaceful place. What are you doing here?”
And Kahlil Gibran writes in his diary, “It shocked me, but he was making a very significant point. He was saying that only the madhouse seems to be sane, and outside the madhouse everybody is insane.”
At least in the madhouse nobody worries, nobody is ambitious to become a president or a prime minister, nobody is concerned to become the richest man, nobody has any ambition. People are enjoying moment-to-moment life. You may not like their way of doing it, you may not like their way of enjoying it, but that is your problem not their problem. In the madhouse nobody has any problem except the doctors who are running here and there worried and concerned. The mad people don’t have any worry in the world; they are just at ease as they are. They are in a tremendous acceptability.
It happened in one madhouse…
