“All creativity that has happened in the world has come through meditation knowingly or unknowingly. All the poetry, all the music, all the dance is possible only if something deep inside you starts bursting forth in celebration. You have to come out of seriousness. There is no need to be so serious… Learn to laugh, learn to sing and that will help you immensely, because the whole existence is a celebration. If we are serious, then we are not part of the universe.”

“The body is your base. It is your earth. You are rooted there… So feel happy with the body. Enjoy the feel of it and become more sensitive. Let the body become more alive and don’t be afraid… Much more will happen, much higher than the body, but it will be rooted in the body. The tree will go very far away from the earth. It will flower in the sky, but it will remain rooted in the earth… And the higher a tree goes, the deeper it has to send its roots into the earth.”

“Out of curiosity you cannot attain the truth, because truth needs a persistent effort, a continuity, a perseverance which a man of curiosity cannot do… He can sow the seeds, but he cannot wait because millions of new interests are always calling him… He is like a drifting wood in the sea… Accidental he is and the accidental man cannot attain to the divine… A perseverance is needed, a continuous hammering is needed.”

What is music after all? Just noise arranged in a beautiful way.”

“Attachment destroys all joy, because nobody can enjoy anything that brings bondage – that goes against our inner being. Our inner being longs for freedom, so whatsoever prevents the freedom we are angry at. That’s why lovers fight, fight continuously. They are angry at each other, and the anger is that they have become bondages to each other… Love cannot exist without freedom – sooner or later it dies. And freedom cannot exist without love. They nourish each other.”

“The pessimist goes on looking at the darker side of things and goes on denying the whiter side; he accepts only half of the truth. The optimist goes on denying the darker side of things and accepts only the whiter side; he is also half true… Neither of them accepts the whole truth, because the whole truth is both summer and winter, God and devil, darkness and light… Don’t choose. Let truth be as it is. Don’t try to paint it in your own mood – try to see the facticity of it… Don’t look through hope, don’t look through frustration; don’t be positive and don’t be negative – that is the highest consciousness.”

“If you really want to have a transformed life, if you really want to become a light unto yourself, if you really want to know the ultimate mystery of existence and the ultimate ecstasy of being alive, then the first force is intensity, totality. Whatsoever you do, do it intensely, to the optimum… Go into it wholeheartedly, let it become a total absorption… It is only at one hundred degrees intensity that one evaporates from the material into the spiritual, from the earth into the sky.“

“It is love that brings insight into the mystery of life. It is not a commodity. It cannot be part of the marketplace, but without it you can never be ecstatic. Without it you can never be in tune with existence. It is fundamentally the need of the individual, not of the collective …So a shift is needed. One has to change the gears from the head to the heart. And the moment your energy starts moving into the heart you will have such an experience of freedom, such a tremendous experience of expansiveness.”

“Love is the first experience of melting, merging, of losing one’s boundaries. Hence it is the first spiritual experience, and one should not stop at that.

The moment one surrenders oneself to the whole one becomes holy.”
