Understand. Delight in the discovery of life. Delight in the discovery of this breath. Delight in the discovery of the divine that resides inside of you.
How far do you have to travel to find yourself? Do you have to go anywhere to find you? Where do you think you have to go? To some holy place to find yourself? Wherever you are, you are. And all you have to know, is to get to know yourself. That is so simple.
If absence of war is peace, then why is it that wars start again after the wars are over? You see, you’re talking about political peace. Political peace is not the peace that resides within you. War is a symptom, not the disease. When people are in peace, wars could end — if that’s what they decided. Because the real war begins with you.
Is peace possible? Yes. How is peace possible, with all those problems out there? Because peace doesn’t reside in problems. Peace resides in you!
What does that mean, 'to be content'? One could argue, 'to have everything'. But can you have everything? Or do you already have everything, but don’t know it? The most precious thing in your life happens to be right under your nose, and you’re not aware of it. What is it? The coming and going of this breath.
“It is not the world that needs peace; it is people. When people in the world are at peace within, the world will be at peace.”
If we have the strength to have wars, we have the strength to have peace. If we have the minds to have wars, we have the hearts to have peace. Peace is not far. In fact, peace is dancing in the heart of every single being on the face of this earth, waiting, once again, to be discovered.
In that most magnificent place, the purest of all places—your heart, someone resides there who is your closest friend. There for you always. No cell phone required. No language required to communicate. All is there within you. Other parties have to end, but this one has the possibility of going on and on, for the rest of your life.
It is in the minds of men that wars are created. It is from the hearts of human beings that peace will be created. If every individual were to value and feel at peace with themselves there would be no wars. There is something essentially good in every human being, when we find it, nurture it and live consciously, peace becomes a reality.
It’s easy to be a believer. You can believe anything you want. Knowing is a little bit more specific. You cannot know anything. You can only know that which is. What is? This beautiful breath, this beautiful existence.
Know that the divine dwells in your heart — not because I said it, but because you felt it. Not one day, not two days, not three days, but all your life.
There is a great lamp within you, and the rays of that lamp are your life. In these little lamps outside, the wick burns oil and then burns out. The lamp within does not burn anything, but gives bliss.
These eyes can see the world, but they cannot see themselves. To see them, you need a mirror. You need a mirror to see this true face, this true existence, your life; to fall in love.
You know who is your savior? You! You’re most qualified to save yourself. You know all your weaknesses. You know all your strengths. You are eminently qualified to save yourself. So get on with the business of saving yourself by recognizing the potential that you have within you. Understand. This is not a little thing.
