This is the most blissful experience, the greatest ecstasy possible. You are a buddha in this moment.
If you can remain aware and relaxed around the clock, you will know the beauty and the grace of every moment, of every inch of life.
What is possible in this moment is possible in every moment. This is simply to show your potential. You have to bring all this silence and peace and this awareness to your day-to-day life.
Collect all these experiences: the silence, the bliss, the ecstasy, the divine drunkenness, and persuade the buddha to follow you. He has to come and become your very being.
He has been hiding inside you because you never went in, you never requested him. Make the request, persuade him.
These are the three steps: first, you persuade the inner light, the buddha, to come behind you; the second step, you become a shadow behind the buddha; and the third step, your shadow, recognized as shadow, disappears, and only the presence of the buddha remains.
That is your truth, and that is everybody else’s truth. That is the truth of the whole existence.
Existential truth is the Manifesto of Zen.
Now, come back.
Come back, but remembering, watching, silent, graceful.
Sit for a few moments just to remember where you have been, the golden path that you have gone through, the center and the silence of the center, the center and your disappearance in it.
Your witnessing has to become slowly, slowly your very life.
I don’t teach any morality. To me, awareness is the only morality, the only ethics, the only religion, because out of awareness you cannot do anything wrong. It is always your unconscious mind which forces you to do wrong things.
As awareness grows, slowly, slowly your whole being becomes luminous, there is no dark spot inside you.
That day you have become a buddha.
That day is the most blessed day of your life.
