THE BUDDHA: THE EMPTINESS OF THE HEART

Chapter 5: In the blink of an eye

Question 1

 

Energy Enhancement         Enlightened Texts         Zen         The emptiness of the heart

 

Question 1
Maneesha has asked:
OUR BELOVED MASTER,
IS IT BECAUSE YOU SPEAK FROM YOUR OWN FUNDAMENTAL EXPERIENCE THAT YOUR WORDS SPONTANEOUSLY IMPRESS ONE AS TRUE, AS UNEQUIVOCAL COMMON SENSE, EVEN THOUGH THE LISTENER MAY NOT HAVE HAD SUCH EXPERIENCE?
FROM THE FIRST SENTENCE OF YOURS THAT I EVER READ -- BEFORE I COULD HAVE DEVELOPED THE EYES AND EARS OF LOVE -- THERE WAS NO DECISION TO CHOOSE TO ACCEPT THAT YOU WERE RIGHT. YOU SIMPLY WERE -- WHETHER IT SUITED ME OR NOT. I JUST DON'T GET IT: HOW IS IT THAT OTHERS COULD POSSIBLY FEEL OTHERWISE?

Maneesha, you can speak on the authority of others, but then your words are dead corpses, like the dry roses you can find in Holy Bibles. But when someone speaks from his own experience it is a living phenomenon. You may agree with it, you may not agree, but it leaves the impact on you that you have been in contact with someone who knows.
I am not authoritarian, but I am an authority. And you have to understand the difference between the two. The authoritarian is always within quotation marks. He is a great scholar, you cannot dispute him. His argument is very valid, supported by the scriptures. His authoritarian attitude is derived from scriptures, from the past, from others' experiences.
I am not authoritarian but certainly I am the authority. I say only that which I know. And because I say only that which I know, you may agree with it or not, it does not matter; its truth rings a bell in your heart. And whenever something rings a bell in your heart, don't listen to the mind -- the mind may not agree. Listen to the heart because the heart knows better.
The heart is ancient; the mind is a very recent development. And the mind's development is from outside experiences. The heart knows something of the inner, it knows nothing of the outer. So when your heart rings a bell, whether your mind agrees with it or not, don't be worried; you are very close to the truth.
If any person's presence simply overwhelms you ... that is the only intimate communion between a disciple and a master. That is the only way the disciple can decide that he has found his master. He is overwhelmed, he is surrounded by the master's presence from all sides. The mind may be freaking out, because mind is always afraid of being overwhelmed by someone. The mind is basically egoistic and to be overwhelmed means the ego may be gone like a shadow. Mind is afraid of truth, mind is afraid of reality, because mind consists of all kinds of illusions, lies. Truth will expose it; hence it avoids the truth.
But you are fortunate, Maneesha. If your heart says that you have found a man who is speaking on his own authority, then a revolution is possible in your very life, too. And that revolution is happening day by day, it is not something that stops. It goes on happening until you are completely burned and dissolved.
That fortunate moment will also come. It is not very far. This is a good beginning.

Before you enter into the living way, inwards, don't forget to come back again. I am always afraid for Sardar Gurudayal Singh. I have even ordered a grave to be made ready, because some day somebody may not come back. And Sardar Gurudayal Singh is standing in the queue almost at the front, very close. He will laugh and simply go away. We will celebrate... and he knows that there is no need to be worried. But he goes on coming back, because one never knows what joke I am going to tell.
I will miss him also, because he is the only man in the whole world who laughs before the joke is told. Such trust is very difficult to find. But I warn you all: go deep, but don't go too far. When Nivedano gives the call to come back, be a good boy!

Jesus and Peter are sipping their iced tea while sunbathing on the shore of Lake Galilee.
A group of children nearby start throwing rocks in the water. They laugh and shout and kick up the sand.
His peace completely destroyed, Peter sits up. "Hey! You kids!" he barks at them. "You get outta here!"
But Jesus pushes up his Ray-Ban sunglasses, wipes the sand off his face, and says, "No, Peter. Let the children come unto me."
Five minutes later, the noise is deafening as screaming kids, splashing water, and flying sand fill the air. Peter, hung over from last night's wine, gets totally pissed off. "I said, you kids just get the hell outta here!" he screams.
But again Jesus sits up, wipes the sand off himself, raises his hand and says, "Peter, I told you: let the children come unto me -- so that I can kick their little asses!"

Klopski is sitting with Seamus at the Dancing Duck Pub, sipping his beer.
"Hey, Seamus," says the Polack, "how do you do so well with the girls?"
"Easy," says Seamus. "You have to be sophisticated, and you have to have a gimmick."
"Sophisticated is easy," says Klopski, swallowing down his tenth beer. "But what is a gimmick?"
"Well," replies Seamus, "for example, I painted a white circle on the dashboard of my car. The girl usually asks me what it means. Then I very casually explain that it stands for purity. The conversation generally turns to abstract white things, like virginity. From there it is easy to talk them into it."
"Okay," says Klopski, "I think I got it."
The next evening Klopski paints a white circle on the dashboard of his car, and then goes to pick up his date, Lucy.
"That is rather unusual -- having a white circle on your dash," says Lucy to Klopski.
"Yes, it is," replies Klopski, thinking quickly as he adjusts his tie. "Do you wanna fuck?"

"You are drunk!" shouts the barman of the Groggy Doggie Pub, at Paddy, who just has slipped slowly onto the floor again.
"I'm not drunk at all!" insists Paddy, picking himself up. "In fact, I'm not even drunk a little bit, and I'll prove it to you. Now, you see that cat just coming in the door? Well, it has only got one eye."
"You're drunker than I thought," says the barman. "That cat is going out!"

Nivedano...

Nivedano...

Be silent, close your eyes.
Feel your body to be completely frozen.
Look inwards, straight to the very source of your life.
Go deeper without any fear.
Only this way has anyone found himself as a buddha. This is the only living road that leads you to your cosmic home.
Without hesitation go on, go on.
Gather all the experience of silence, the bliss and the benediction.

To make it more clear, Nivedano...

Relax, watch your mind and body, separate from you.
You are only a watcher.
This point of being a watcher is the buddha.
Recognize your buddha nature; it is just a mirror -- reflecting everything but unaffected.
Nothing leaves a mark on your watching. The mirror remains empty.
This emptiness can at any moment take a quantum leap, and you will find yourself on the other shore.
Just in a split second you can be one with the whole.
This union is the authentic goal of religiousness.

A beautiful evening...
Unfortunately, how many are able to enjoy it?
So few, but we have to spread this fire, this cool silence, just like a breeze around the globe.
This silence is going to become the womb for the new man to be born.
You prepare the way.

Nivedano...

Come back.
But come back like buddhas, with great dignity, with grace, with silence.
Sit for a few moments, just gathering, remembering, collecting the experience of your silent moments.

You have to remain a buddha twenty-four hours.
It is not an action, it is your nature.
It has to be expressed in all your actions, in your words, in your silences, in your songs, in your dances.
But you remain the watcher, the buddha.

Okay, Maneesha?
Yes, Beloved Master.

Can we celebrate all the buddhas?
Yes!
