The sixth question:
Question 6
DID I HEAR YOU RIGHTLY? THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO STOP THE MISERY -- NO DECORATION OR PRUNING IS GOING TO DO ANY GOOD.
Veda, you heard me absolutely rightly.
Yes, there is nothing that can be done to stop the misery. If you go on doing something to stop the misery, you will go on creating it. That's how it persists, that's how you nourish it, feed it. If you are doing something to stop misery, you are creating it -- because the doing creates the doer. The doing brings the ego, and the ego is the poison. The doing keeps you tense, and the doing creates anxiety -- whether you are going to make it or not. The doing keeps you anxious, always trembling, and that is misery. And the doing never allows you rest. How can you rest unless you have done that which you need to do? Unless you have arrived you cannot relax -- you can only relax in the tomorrow. But the tomorrow never comes; all that comes is today -- and you still have to do something. You are sacrificing your today for tomorrow.
And this is the only stupid thing that man has to be aware of.
Don't sacrifice this moment for any other moment. Don't sacrifice this life for any heaven -- first, second, fifth, seventh... Don't sacrifice for anything. This moment has to be lived as this moment. Just this. Only this. Don't sacrifice it, because the next moment may never come; in fact, it never comes. You sacrifice this for the next, and then you will sacrifice the next, and so on and so forth... and one day you will die. And you will be just sacrificing and sacrificing. Sacrifice is misery. If you want to do something to stop misery, you will never be able to stop it. But if you have heard me, and not only intellectually... Because I use simple words... There is nothing that can be done to stop the misery. If you have heard it, misery will stop immediately. That's what Yoka calls 'cutting the root'.
Stop doing anything to stop the misery. And I am not saying try to stop; otherwise, you move again, you start again, on the same trip -- in a different name, with a different flag. That's why Yoka says the root can be cut directly, immediately, right now. This is the moment. Now or never.
One day it happened...
Ramakrishna was sitting under a tree, and the disciples were working. Somebody was cleaning the garden, and somebody was cooking, and somebody was doing something else. And he was sitting under a tree, swaying, singing, chanting. And then suddenly he shouted 'This is it! Now or never!'
It was so sudden that the man who was cleaning the garden path stopped. The man who was cooking stopped. The people who were Sitting there with closed eyes opened their eyes and stopped whatsoever they were doing. For a moment bliss descended, benediction was there. Ramakrishna laughed. He said 'You see? You go on searching for it, and it is here.'
And one man touched his feet and thanked him. But Ramakrishna said 'Don't thank me. I have not done anything, I simply shouted "This is it! Now or never!" and you heard it. Thank yourself. Now keep reminding yourself. Don't start a journey towards a goal called bliss, God, paradise, truth. Be here, and misery has gone. Where is the misery? Look...'
Veda, look right now! Where is the misery? If you have heard me rightly, if you have heard me at all, where is the misery? In this moment is there any misery? Look inside. All has stopped. It is so silent... the benediction is upon you...
And this can be your life forever and forever. This is my life, and this is your birthright too. Claim it.
If you stop doing anything to stop misery, misery stops -- that's the miracle. You are just doing something like a dog. Have you seen a dog chasing its own tail? And the dog starts getting crazy, because the more he tries to chase his tail... and it looks so close by, it is just lying there, and when he jumps the tail jumps. Naturally, the dog gets offended; a dog, after all, is a dog. He rushes more forcibly -- natural logic; all dogs are logicians. The natural logic is that he is not running enough after it, that's why he cannot catch it.
That's the logic in the market-place, that's the logic of the politicians: that if you are not getting what you want, it simply shows you are not running enough, you are not going fast enough. 'Go fast! Find more speedy means!' That's the whole logic of this century: speed. If you are unhappy then you must be going very slowly towards it. 'Go fast! Hire a jet plane and go fast! The faster you go the better. The greater the speed the better.' This is the logic. This has nothing very special about it -- dogs have the same logic.
And then the dog jumps, and faster and faster it goes, and round and round it goes. But it cannot catch the tail. And it is so close by, just by the corner, and he can look: it is there.
Just think of a dog. Just become a dog for a moment and think. 'So close? And you cannot catch it! Are you impotent or something?' It is such a challenge. Then the dog is exhausted, falls on the ground, panting, and it is there... he avoids looking at it, because it is so tempting -- and it is his own tail! There is no need to catch it. There is the catch: there is no need to catch it; it is already yours.
That's what is happening, Veda. If you are trying to become happy, trying to become not miserable, trying to stop misery and attain to blissfulness, you are chasing a tail that looks close by but which you will never be able to get at because it is already yours. You already possess it. Stop chasing, and see the root of the tail; you will find that it is joined to you. And you don't need any Master to join your tail to you: no Charan Singh is needed to connect you; you are connected.
DID I HEAR YOU RIGHTLY? THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO STOP THE MISERY -- NO DECORATION OR PRUNING IS GOING TO DO ANY GOOD?
You still want something to be occupied with; you are still hoping I will say 'No, Veda. There is something. I will give you a secret initiation, Veda. Come to me. There is something -- a sacred mantra -- that I give only to special people, the chosen few.' There is nothing sacred and there is nothing special, because nothing has to be done; God has done it already. The world is as perfect as it ever can be. You are as perfect as you ever can be. In fact, you are more perfect than you can imagine yourself ever to be.
Just relax. There is no need to stop anything. If misery is there, it is there. Don't do anything about it; leave it there. Be respectful to it, and leave it there. And you will be surprised that just leaving it there is cutting the root. You are no more feeding it; you are no more tense; no more anxious, no more in anguish. Misery is there, and you are not miserable -- how long can the misery remain? It is going to die, it will disappear soon. It was created by your running: it was the smoke created by your rush and speed.
And if you cannot learn it here where I have transformed the air into wine, where will you learn? Here it is happening. You have just to be open to it; it is already happening. All is perfect in this moment. So are you.
This moment, with no endeavour, with no effort, with nowhere to go, is God. In this moment, relaxed, you are that: TATTWAMASI, Thou art That. In this moment nothing is missed, nothing is missing. This I call 'intoxication' -- intoxication with the moment, with existence.

You have to learn to breathe this air. That is SATSANG, that is being with a Master.
