All that human mind has, comes from somebody else. All your notions of right and wrong come from others. At your age, should you not inquire from where you have obtained these notions of right and wrong? Somebody told them to you. Right? Somebody else told you that always speak the truth, don’t lie, don’t hurt others, respect your elders, and that is right, and if you steal, then that is wrong.

All are heartfully invited!
You are always looking at other’s faces, always looking back over your shoulder.
Your eyes are always waiting for approval.
And when you are not sure of yourself then, anybody can disturb you, anybody can shake you up.
Sureness is missing. And one cannot live peacefully without that inner sureness.
Life is what life is.
It has no obligation to confirm to your images.
Whatever is happening around you is a gateway to the Truth.
Pay attention to it, come close to it, and you see a way opening up to you.
Just come close.
Just see what it is, and you will only hear the call of the Truth.
There is nothing else that is there!
It is not possible to keep believing that you are needy and yet not be a beggar. Not possible! You have to remove this belief from your mind that you are needy. And you cannot remove this belief just through willpower, by just telling yourself that you are not needy. You will actually have to test it.
The more clearly you state to me that such and such people are inhibiting your freedom, hampering your growth, stealing your joy; the more obliged you become to answer the question then, “Why are you with them”?
I will tell you, why are you with them.
Because you are so corrupted that you want all the benefits that come from their company and parallelly you also want to insult and humiliate them. You take all that can be taken from them and then you sing to the world that they are exploiting you.
Who is exploiting whom?
