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!
Look at your definitions. Look at their unworthiness. Look at the trap that they are.
Every word that you utter is a trap.
What you call as ‘fresh’ is not fresh at all.
What you call as ‘present’ is not present at all.
What you call as ‘love’ is not love at all.
What you call as ‘me’ is not me at all.
Your language is a conspiracy against yourself.
Why do you speak? Why do you even think?
The ability is there; a perfect ability is there. It is just that, you did not allow the ability to take expression.
Only expressions can be compared. Ability is incomparable. It is immeasurable. It is so vast and immense that there is no point trying to compare it.
And you do not even know how able you are. Most of you have no sense of your great abilities. We live in a needless inferiority.
Do you know how strong, capable, powerful and able you are? You do not know.
You only have an idea of yourself, a concept of yourself, which is mostly a borrowed concept. And that concept tells you that you are limited, small and pity.
Does the leaf follow any purpose? The leaf just is. When the wind comes, the leaf dances. That’s it. When the heat is too strong, the leaf dies, withers away. That’s it. And it’s so disturbing to many. “Oh my God! Nothing to do.” When the wind comes, then move and dance, and when your time is up, then go away. That’s it.
‘Whose’ priorities are you talking of? Your priorities depend upon your mind.
We all have priorities but we do not even know that those priorities are not at all, our priorities. Those priorities have been imposed upon us by various forces.
