This is almost a miracle. I have not come across any miracle other than the miracle of meditation, the miracle of witnessing. Because if you can witness, you will be surprised that the strong wall is becoming thinner, the crowd is dispersing. Slowly, slowly you see doors and gaps through which you can get out.
But there is no need to get out. Remain where you are. Just go on witnessing. As your witnessing becomes stronger, the wall that surrounds you will become weaker. The day your witnessing is perfect, you will find there has been no wall, nothing is surrounding you, the whole sky is available to you.
Rather than fighting with thoughts, fighting against wrong conditionings, just become a pure witness. Fighting, you cannot win. Without fighting victory is yours. Victory belongs only to those who can witness.
Hymie Goldberg was having trouble getting Becky, his wife, to make love to him anymore. So one night just before bedtime, he offered her a glass of water and two aspirins.
“What are you giving me these for?” Becky asked. “I have not got a headache.”
“Great,” said Hymie. “Let us get started.”
This headache was the problem. Every day, whenever poor Goldberg would ask, the wife had a great headache. This time he worked through a different methodology. Becky could not understand that now he is using a very wise strategy – offering aspirins even before she has said she has a headache.
So just be a little wise….
Doctor Klein finished the examination of his patient and then said, “You are in perfect health, Mr. Levinsky, your heart, lungs, blood pressure, cholesterol level…. Everything is fine.”
“Splendid,” said Mr. Levinsky.
“I will see you next year,” said Doctor Klein.
They shook hands, but as soon as the patient had left the room, Doctor Klein heard a loud crash. He opened the door and there, flat on his face, lay Mr. Levinsky. The nurse cried, “Doctor, he just collapsed. He fell down like a rock.”
The doctor felt his heart and said, “My God, he is dead.” He then put his hands under the corpse’s arms.
“Quick,” said the doctor, “take his feet!”
“What?” cried the nurse.
“For God’s sake,” said the doctor, “let us turn him round. We have to make it look like he was coming in!”
Just be a little intelligent.
It is said that intelligence is not of much use unless you are intelligent enough to know how to use it.
