You think that there is going to be an end to the suffering, don’t you?
You call it by various names. You call it the achievement of your dreams, the religious man calls it enlightenment, the material man calls it achievement. But be it the material man or the spiritual man, everywhere there is a target to be realized; the material man says a billion dollars, the spiritual man or the religious man says enlightenment, moksh, nirvana.
Both of them have some target. When you have that mental image then suffering becomes unbearable. First of all realize that there is never going to be any end to all this. This is life!
This is life when you are twenty and this will be life when you will be eighty. Get rid-off of all your dreams, all the utopia that you have raised. This is life, and I am not saying this as a statement of disgust or resignation.
There is a difference between resignation and surrender. I am saying this as a statement of deep surrender, ‘I am the great totality of it all and the great totality is expressing itself in a limited way through me. And where there is limitation there is going to be suffering in this way or that way. Why complain against it? Why? And if there is no suffering, then I am not a man! I am not a man.‘
It is a part of your humaneness.
