This has always been so. Mohammedans have killed so many people, and so have Christians. They are all trying to do good, and they are all trying to help people, but they are not aware of their own unconscious ego trip. It is not a question of wanting to change the world and helping people – these are nonsensical things. One should understand that these games have been played long enough and be aware of them. But human stupidity is such that again and again we fall into the same trap.
A really religious person will not in any way be forcing anything on anybody. He cannot be moralistic, cannot have any idea of sin. He will accept you on your terms. He won’t have any terms, any conditions, saying that if you fulfill these then you enter heaven, and if you don’t fulfill them you will be thrown into hell.
Any religious person will not be fanatical at all – because there is nothing to be fanatic about! He will be a wideness, an open sky. You cannot find any boundaries, any limitations to him.
So if these are the negatives, whatsoever you call the positives are bogus. If these positives are real, then these negatives cannot exist. So you sort it out. You may have a certain fascination for the positives, but that alone is not enough – because the path of hell is lined with good wishes.
They don’t seem to be authentically human, fully integrated. It seems like their spirituality is built on a weak foundation; it doesn’t permeate their whole being.
In fact spirituality is not something separate from your being. It is your fullness of being. It is not something that you have to attain over and above you. It is you, a flowering. It is you, relaxed, integrated, total. Spirituality is not a goal. If it is a goal, then you will always find a superstructure of spirituality, and somewhere deep down, the crippled human being. All that sort of spirituality is just rot.
Be a total human being. When I say total I never mean perfect. A total human being can never be perfect, because he will always be growing; it is a process. Totality is a process and never comes to any perfection; or, every moment it is perfect and goes on attaining to so many types of perfection. It becomes more and more perfect, more perfect than perfect, but it is a process. A perfect man is a dead man. A total man is an alive process, a dynamic force.
Spirituality is not something over and above humanity. It is just the fragrance of humanity. If you are really human, you are spiritual. We can drop the word spiritual – there is no need for it. There is no need to give it a special name, but the separate name helps the ego. You start fighting with your humanity, repressing your humanity, and trying to create a superstructure on top of it. It is a mere decoration and remains skin-deep. So if you look deep into your saints, you will find very paralyzed, crippled human beings, not flowering at all – stinking!
