But just listening to me will not help. You will have to practice this as much as possible. And it needs no separate time – that you have to sit for one hour, or twenty minutes, and witness. If you have time you can sit silently and witness, but there is no necessity. You can go on doing your work and still be witnessing.
The whole thing is how to make your witness stronger and stronger, so that it is capable of losing all identities. Only a strong person can lose all identities.
And to be in utter silence…there is light, a light that never began and never ends. And it is yours just to claim. And the effort is not so difficult as religions have been telling you.
Walking on the road, what is the problem? Why can’t you simply watch your walking? The question is not of the object that you witness, the question is that you witness. Anything helps to strengthen your witnessing energies.
Looking at a beautiful sunset, don’t just get lost, don’t forget yourself. Remember that you are only a seer. It can go on twenty-four hours a day without anybody knowing that you are doing something. Religion is not something that the world has to know about. It is something that you have to do within yourselves.
Start from this very moment.
This immense silence – thousands of people, but it is as if there is no one…just witness. The faraway sound of an airplane…You remain only a witness.
And then go on practicing the same thing whatever you are doing – eating, taking a shower, doing some work in the garden, in the field. It does not matter what you do, what matters is that your witness is always present.
In the beginning you will forget many times, because for many lives you have never been a witness, you have always been a doer. So it is just an old habit. Old habits die hard, but they certainly die.
And it all depends on you. The more you make it a process almost like breathing…. You go on doing everything, still you are breathing. You don’t stop your breathing because you are digging a hole in the earth.
Witnessing has to become just like breathing.
It in fact is the breathing of the universal soul in you.
And once you have tasted just a moment of being universal, the morning has come. The dark night of the soul is over.
You can master all impossible contradictions into harmony. Can you make a song out of these: what is the link between universal laws and freedom? Sometimes I feel imprisoned by the laws of nature.
You ask me, “Can I make a song out of all contradictions?”
I am surprised – what else am I doing here?
Your problem is very logical, relevant: there are laws of nature, and I teach you freedom. It appears, it is apparent that there is a contradiction.
