Time is a false notion created by the mind.
Eternity is truth, timelessness is truth.
Somebody asked Jesus, “Tell us something more about the kingdom of God. What will be special there? Something unique. Yes, we have heard that there will be pleasure, but pleasure we know – maybe it will be thousands and thousands of times greater, but we know what pleasure is. We have heard there will be celestial music – okay, we know something about music. What will be special?”
And you will be surprised what Jesus said. It is not recorded in the Christian scriptures, but there are a few sayings scattered here and there in other scriptures. This is recorded by the Sufis. Jesus said: “There shall be time no longer.” A tremendously significant answer. There shall be time no longer – this will be special. You have known everything, but you have not known timelessness. “There shall be time no longer” means there shall be mind no longer. Mind and time are synonymous.
In the ultimate reckoning, time is mind, mind is time. Both are aspects of the same coin, they both disappear together. Drop one, and the other is gone also.
You ask me, “What is the seed of desire?” There is no seed of desire. Desire is the ultimate seed of all other seeds.
And you ask, “Is it only in the existence of mind?” No. The mind has only a little glimpse of desire, just a flickering glimpse of desire. The mind knows nothing of desire; the mind only knows about desiring this and desiring that. Desiring money, desiring power, desiring prestige – the mind knows about desires for objects. When the objects are no longer there, desire is no longer part of the mind. Then desire is beyond mind; then desire is simply an overflowing energy.
William Blake says desire is energy and energy is delight. I have heard a rumor that Sargama, one of our sannyasins, is a direct descendant of William Blake. We have beautiful people here. William Blake is one of the most beautiful persons who has ever walked on the earth, one of the most penetrating mystics. Sargama must have something of William Blake’s quality in him. But it may be just a rumor, because I have heard another rumor also that William Blake had no son at all. But that may be applicable only to legitimate sons; one can have illegitimate sons.
William Blake’s insight is true. Desire is energy, energy is delight. Contemplate over it. Just pure desire, just overflowing energy, for no particular object, for no destination.
