  • You Have Everything but You Don't Have Yourself

  • Do you think its true that the more light you have

  • the better you can see what is trivial

  • and outmoded in your conditioning?

  • Right.

  • The more comfortable you are

  • the more luxurious you live

  • the more

  • richness

  • in all the dimensions of life

  • more is the possibility

  • for you to become aware of one thing:

  • that you have everything

  • but you don't have yourself

  • that you are surrounded by all the luxuries

  • there is nothing more to be added to it,

  • but who are you?

  • Living in a palace

  • but what the hell you are doing here?

  • The question is bound to happen.

  • The poor man cannot ask it.

  • He is looking for bread,

  • he is looking for his children's medicine,

  • he has no house

  • You think he will

  • start inquiring about his

  • interiority,

  • about truth,

  • about the meaning of life?

  • It is impossible for a poor man

  • to be religious.

  • That's why I say I am the rich man's guru.

  • It has nothing to do

  • with me.

  • Only the rich man

  • has the opportunity

  • to inquire

  • beyond

  • the mundane things

  • The poor man

  • I feel sorry for him

  • but I cannot think that

  • I should go to Ethiopia and teach meditation there

  • They will kill me.

  • And I am not suicidal.

  • The world

  • has enough

  • technology now.

  • If its

  • old

  • prejudices and stupidities

  • can be dropped

  • we can make the whole world

  • a paradise.

  • Nothing is lacking.

  • If we can reach to the moon,

  • if we can create so much destructive power,

  • why we cannot create

  • creative power?

  • The same power can be transferred

  • into creativity

  • because power is always neutral.

  • You can burn your cigar by the lighter

  • you can burn your house too

  • Cigar does not...

  • your

  • lighter does not give you

  • any instructions what to do.

  • Science has made available

  • all the energies.

  • You are using them in the service of death.

  • Use them in the service of life.

  • I would like the whole world

  • to live so luxuriously

  • that

  • people start becoming

  • bored with luxury.

  • You should ask me

  • how I am bored with Rolls Royces.

  • How are you bored with Rolls Royces?

  • Ninety Rolls Royces

  • anybody will be bored.

  • And my people

  • are going to try

  • to have three hundred sixty-five.

  • They are bent upon to bore me.

  • What you can do?

  • And the whole earth

  • is capable for the first time

  • to be so luxurious

  • that you don't feel

  • any material need.

  • All material needs are fulfilled.

  • Then what you are going to do?

  • There is nothing else

  • than meditation.

  • That is the only door that is left

  • still open.

  • All other doors you have knocked

  • and seen there is nothing.

  • Only one door

  • is still open, inviting.

  • And whoever has entered that door

  • has never come

  • frustrated,

  • disappointed

  • not a single case in the whole

  • history of humanity

  • that anybody who has

  • reached

  • the center of his being

  • was disappointed,

  • felt meaningless,

  • was miserable,

  • committed suicide.

  • Not a single exception.

  • That's why I say meditation

  • is a scientific thing.

  • That's how science works:

  • if you can find something without any exception

  • it becomes rule.

  • Meditation is a scientific method

  • because in the whole history

  • nobody has

  • denied

  • that it does not lead you

  • to the ultimate

  • blissfulness.

  • This is such

  • a strange phenomenon

  • that these politicians go on

  • sympathizing with the poor people,

  • with the starving people,

  • with the dying people,

  • and the same politicians go on

  • throwing food into the sea.

  • Ethiopia is dying

  • and Europe has thrown

  • thousands of tons

  • of fresh oranges

  • into the ocean.

  • And the political leaders go on talking

  • about sympathy, compassion.

  • The religious leaders go on

  • talking about sympathy

  • and they are against birth control.

  • They are against

  • abortion:

  • it should not be legalized.

  • Strange,

  • they are responsible for creating more population;

  • that means more poverty.

  • The politicians are putting seventy-five percent

  • of their nation's income

  • into wars,

  • army,

  • nuclear weapons,

  • and people are dying

  • even their own people.

  • Thirty million people in America itself

  • are on the streets.

  • And you are creating nuclear weapons,

  • and you are

  • making efforts to reach to the mars

  • or to the moon.

  • You must have gone nuts!
