...; There are thousands of ways of getting into this trip of power, politics, money, knowledge, anything where man starts bragging about himself as special. The psychology behind this worshipping of tigers and lions symbolizes the worship of power. So man on the one hand worshipped them and on the other hand killed them. I was a guest of the Maharaja of Bhavnagar. He took me around his palace. And I saw all...
...; it was a reflected glory. And you can see it, it is not very difficult. You know men who have much power -- power of things, power of big palaces, power of politics, money, prestige, heritage but you can see that they are poor people. They don't have any personal power. They don't have any magnetism in their souls. If you put their things aside, t]hey are more ordinary than ordinary. All...
.... These are the only two worldly powers: either politics or money. Because they were not in the majority, they could not be politically powerful, so naturally their whole intelligence was channellised towards money. That was the only way for them to become powerful. And with money many things come. With money comes more education, with money comes more literature, more music, more drama, more art...
... will become even deeper. The more you try, the more you will fail. And the more you fail, the more you will lose your self-confidence, your respect for yourself - in drugs, in alcohol, in this and that, in power politics, in money, in the marketplace... and people have invented a thousand and one ways to escape from themselves. And they have to invent them because they have created an ugly idea...
... driven into mad ways, into mad paths - politics, money, power, prestige, fame. These are all ugly things. These are neurotic things. And religions have not only condemned it, they have created a subtle mechanism for you to condemn yourself. The priest cannot follow you everywhere, the parents cannot go with you everywhere, so they have created a very subtle mechanism - almost like an electrode...
..., "Forgive me, but this I cannot understand. I come here to talk about God, religion, meditation, SAMADHI And this is ridiculous - that I, a man of the world, come to talk about samadhi, enlightenment, and you, a religious man - supposedly religious, because now I have become suspicious - you always, whenever I come, talk about the kingdom and politics and money and thousands of things, but always...
... not known it already you could not have imagined that this lotus has come out of ordinary mud. Impossible to conceive, to comprehend, because the lotus is such a transformed phenomenon. So different. Of some other world. It does not seem to be part of THIS earth. But it comes out of this earth. Love arises as a lotus. As science - particularly destructive science - politics, money and money-oriented...
... - you have more, but your being remains the same. So is power: if you are a prime minister or a president of a country you feel powerful - the army, the police, the court, the whole paraphernalia of the state is yours. The boundaries of the country are your boundaries: you feel tremendously powerful. But that too is a drug. Let me say to you: Politics and money are as much drugs as LSD and marijuana...
... then everything is okay. Success brings sanctity. Remember only one thing: Don't fail. And if you don't want to fail, be absolutely mad - the madder you are, the better. Then you can defeat other people who are not so mad. Only the mad people succeed in politics, in money, in the world of power. Violent people succeed. But what is their success? They succeed, but what exactly is their success? When they succeed...
... needs action. Desires need action; politics, money, everything needs action. Sleep is sheer wastage. If your mind is obsessed with desires you go half-heartedly to bed, as if it is a compulsion - and then you feel you cannot sleep. Half hearted, you create resistance.
