... will destroy millions of people. Just think: if Adolf Hitler had been a drug addict, the world would have been far better; if he had been on LSD, or with a syringe in hand, we would have felt blessed, we would have thanked God "It is very good that he remains in his house and goes on taking shots and is stoned. The world can go on easily without him." Money, politics, are far more dangerous drugs...

...! And one IS free to commit suicide, at least one HAS to be free to commit suicide because it is your life; if you don't want to live, it is okay. But money is murder; so is power-politics murder - it kills others. I am not saying to choose drugs. I am saying ALL drugs are bad: money, politics, LSD, marijuana. You choose these things because you have a false idea that they will expand your consciousness...
..., MORE MEDITATIVE AND LESS MEDITATIVE, CLOSER AND NOT CLOSE. HOW CAN AVOID THESE EXPLOITATIONS? A: There is not much difficulty in it. Simply drop the whole idea. I am teaching you every day that there is nothing higher, nothing lower. It is simply man's ego creating if not money, if not politics, then meditation. The ego can exploit any situation, but it will play the same game. One is higher...
... you until your very last breath. But society is always afraid of nonserious people. Nonserious people will not be ambitious for money, or political power; they would rather enjoy existence. But enjoying existence cannot bring you prestige, cannot make you powerful, cannot fulfill your ego; and the whole world of man revolves around the idea of the ego. Playfulness is against your ego - you can try...
... Nelson had not the guts to defeat Napoleon. Nelson was no comparison to the great warrior Napoleon; but those cats were even bigger warriors. In fact, psychoanalysts have come to the conclusion that the people who become interested in power - either of money or of politics or of some other kind - are the people who are suffering from an inferiority complex. They want to cover it up, and the only way...
... you find yourself attracted to somebody. There is a possibility of love. There are people so dull, so dead, so insensitive, that they only feel attracted towards money, or political power, or fame. You are in a far better situation; at least you are not in love with money. Even Ori Oristotle was in a far better situation than the people who are in love with money. But these people are not thought...
... to think about real problems. Then you put aside everything and you just go into the search for money, more money. And as you get money, more and more desire arises. This desiring for money or political power is nothing but a cover for your anxiety. That's why people are very much frightened when they are left alone and nothing is there to be done. That's why retired people become very very uneasy...
... feel bored with yourself! And everybody is the same: nobody feels good being alone. Man is constantly escaping from himself; that is his whole activity. In business, chasing money, or in politics, chasing power, a constant need to be amused is there, to be entertained is there. Go to the football match or go to the cricket match or go to the races - but go somewhere. Join some club, some crowd, go...
... essential being. But you have become too occupied with the non-essential: the money, the politics, the respectability. You have become too concerned with others' opinions about you, what they are saying about you. You are so afraid of their opinions, and you start living according to their opinions. You always follow in line with the mediocre, the stupid, the crowd. Remember, you are not here to follow...
... knows that he has nothing to do with life, he simply knows that he was searching in a wrong direction. Life has always been compassionate, life has been telling you again and again that you can find nothing here - go back home. But you don't listen. You earn money, and one day money is there - then life says to you, 'What have you got?' But you don't listen. Now you think you have to put your money...

... into politics, you have to become a prime minister or a president - then everything will be okay. One day you are a prime minister, and life again says, 'What have you got?' You don't listen. You go on thinking of something else and something else and something else. Life is vast - that's why many lives are wasted. But don't be angry at life. It is not life that is frustrating you, it is you who are...
... so much as the bat of an eyelash, he addressed the rabbi again. "For the occasion, I am donating to the temple the amount - in cash! - of five thousand dollars." "Mr. Steinberg," the rabbi beamed, "why didn't you tell me in the first place the dog is Jewish?" When it comes to money then even a dog becomes Jewish. When it comes to money and politics, then your Popes...
