  • Baby, My Whole Work Is to Confuse You!

  • I'm confused hearing you say there is no God.

  • There have been many beautiful moments in my life

  • when I feel something moving through me which I know is not me.

  • I used to call it God, now I call it godliness.

  • But I still don't like hearing that there is no God.

  • Can you ease my confusion?

  • Baby,

  • my whole work is to confuse you!

  • Unless you are utterly confused,

  • you are not going to drop your knowledgeability.

  • What do you mean

  • when you ask me to "ease your confusion"?

  • In other words, you want

  • certain,

  • settled

  • knowledgeability.

  • You want to convince yourself that you know it.

  • I

  • cannot commit that crime.

  • You do not know it.

  • So first I have to remove all your

  • knowledge

  • which is bogus anyway.

  • You have not earned it,

  • you don't deserve it.

  • It has not grown within you,

  • it is all

  • rubbish that you have collected from books,

  • from people.

  • I am going to confuse you more and more.

  • And look, what is your confusion?

  • You say

  • that there have been moments in your life

  • which you used to call

  • God

  • you cannot deceive me.

  • I know

  • you may have

  • experienced

  • a few beautiful moments;

  • everybody

  • experiences a few beautiful moments of well-being,

  • of

  • great uplift.

  • Seeing a sunset,

  • suddenly

  • you are silent.

  • Or listening

  • to the

  • tidal waves of the ocean

  • shattering

  • on the rocks

  • on the shore,

  • suddenly

  • you feel

  • almost a nobody

  • before this vast existence.

  • Looking

  • into the sky

  • and the stars

  • you may have

  • had

  • certain moments,

  • and you may have called them God.

  • Don't make God so cheap.

  • I am raising God Higher

  • than he has ever been.

  • The Jewish God says, "I am a jealous God.

  • I am a very angry God.

  • I am not

  • nice,

  • I am not your uncle."

  • Jesus

  • tried

  • to raise

  • the Jewish God,

  • and that was his crime.

  • He said,

  • "God is love."

  • Now, this is very contradictory.

  • The Jewish God says, "I am jealous,

  • I am angry, I am not nice,"

  • and

  • Jesus makes him a goody-goody:

  • "God is love."

  • This man Jesus should be removed

  • before he

  • destroys

  • their

  • certainty

  • that God is jealous, angry.

  • You have to be afraid of him,

  • because that will keep you on the right path.

  • If God is love,

  • then who bothers

  • what is right and what is wrong?

  • A loving God cannot punish you

  • in hell for eternity.

  • But Jesus

  • on the one hand says, "God is love,"

  • and on the other hand

  • he is a Jew after all

  • the eternal hell remains.

  • He cannot see a simple fact, that

  • if God is love

  • then eternal hell should be removed

  • because you need not be afraid of love.

  • Love gives you freedom to be yourself;

  • sandwiched between heaven and hell

  • you cannot have any freedom,

  • any individuality.

  • I am

  • trying to raise

  • God.

  • When I say there is no God,

  • I mean there is no

  • person

  • as God,

  • there is no personality as God.

  • You have to understand clearly

  • that personality is

  • something

  • false.

  • The word

  • personality comes from the Greek persona

  • persona means a mask;

  • in Greek drama

  • the actors used to have a mask.

  • You know sona means sound;

  • a sound coming through a mask

  • was called persona.

  • You cannot see who is behind

  • the mask;

  • hence the actor has a personality.

  • And if you all have personalities

  • you are all actors

  • you are not being

  • authentic,

  • sincerely

  • yourself.

  • Personality and individuality

  • don't mean the same thing.

  • I am taking the personality of God

  • away.

  • I don't want him to be

  • an actor

  • you have so many in Hollywood.

  • Strange, that the place is called "Hollywood"...

  • all gods,

  • personalities,

  • great personalities.

  • I don't want God to be a

  • Hollywood actor.

  • I am trying to destroy his mask,

  • and once the personality drops

  • what is left

  • is godliness.

  • That is

  • the true individuality of existence.

  • I will not say, "God is love,"

  • because that still keeps God as a person.

  • On the contrary, I say, "Love is God."

  • You can forget all about God.

  • If you can understand love,

  • that's enough religion;

  • more than that is not needed.

  • I use the word godliness

  • and you are confused,

  • because those moments...

  • have you seen anybody in those moments

  • that you can call God?

  • You have not seen anybody in those moments,

  • because there is nobody.

  • You were using a wrong word,

  • I am correcting you.

  • Those moments you can call moments of godliness.

  • I am

  • changing God from a quantity to a quality.

  • God is a quantity;

  • godliness is a quality.

  • And you are confused by it?

  • Just a hangover.

  • Shake yourself well

  • slap yourself and shake yourself

  • and all confusion will disappear.
