A Cup of Tea (37)
It is good that you are forgetting the past –
it will open up an altogether new dimension of life.
To live completely in the present is freedom.
The past does not exist apart from memory
and nor does the future apart from castles in the air.
What is, is always present,
and if you start living unreservedly in the present
you live in God.
Once you are free of past and future
the mind turns empty and peaceful,
its waves die down
and what is left is limitless, endless.
This is the ocean of truth –
and may your river reach it!
P.S. I shall probably go to Ahmedabad in January,
can you come with me?
It would be good if we travelled together for a few days.
