Tranquility is the Goal

In India, you have no idea of what there still is going on. . . . I have not lived in India much,  but even then I meet people with miracles.

But miracle is not the test.  Somebody makes miracles, that's nothing.  That's just manipulating the laws of nature.

  Tranquillity!  Where tranquility is, God is. Look for that. In yourself, look for that

Live the Truth of Your Real Being

There is something, in you, which is your real Being ---  something, actually not in you, but that you are, that is full.

That beautiful dress is beautiful because the beauty is in your eye. To a person from a different culture it is not beautiful. There's nothing intrinsic in that.

It is a value you have given it. A diamond is precious because you say so. The diamond doesn't say so; you say so. You say so because the worldwide subliminal suggestions, created by DeBeers, say so. I'm telling you, you're conditioned.

Without that it's a suppression. That is why we have so much problem nowadays, sometimes, with the monastic life. Because that with which ones needs to feel filled, that experience, has not been imparted

Keep Filling Yours Vessel

Upanishad says, "Whomsoever he chooses by Him is he to be found."  Just become such that He chooses you, and don't say, "Well look, I have been doing these good things for so long, and I have done this good deed for that person, and I helped that person; and, God, you still haven't shown your face to me.  I'm going to tear up my contracts with you."  There is no contract.  God hasn't signed a contract with you nor has the Guru.  Only this someone is coming to my home Thursday.  Have I filled a vessel with water?  The world is thirsty for a drink of peace at your fountain

Fill Yourself First With Meditation

The world is thirsty for a drink of peace at your fountain.  Don't go around to the thirsty world asking for a drink from them.  That is what we are doing.  We are going around to the rest of the thirsty world to give us a drink.  No.  The world is thirsty, knocking at your door, dying at your doorstep.  Fill your vessel with water so you may quench their thirst, and when you quench their thirst, your thirst will be quenched by the divine
