What Is There to Do?

PAPAJI: Oh, mind. Mind. The same mind now has become an  action to activate your mind, disturb your mind, now it has become a brush. What are you going to do? What are you going to do? Mind is now a brush. What are you going to do with this brush? So what I say is, neither the mind exists nor the body exists. You prove the mind exists, first of all. This technique, this way, this way that says, “I have to teach the people how to clean the mind”, itself is mind. To clean the mind the way I tell you, how I tell you. A little while ago I said you make a gift. You say, “I have to clean, I have to go and prepare the people to empty their minds” to use these techniques, you see. So you must make this gift of the doer. There must be ego to teach the people to become clean, that ego is now playing the role of a teacher. Isn’t it?

PAPAJI: It is so simple. It is so simple. Very simple. If you don’t make decisions it will rise. You have to be so beautiful that you are chosen. That beauty you can’t touch. You can’t see. So you simply become so pure, immaculate, beautiful and love itself so that you are picked up. You are chosen by your now awareness. Understand? How can you know? How can you reach the unknown? How can you reach? So you have to be lovely and you will be picked up. You will be appreciated. You will be embraced and you will become what it is, you see. You will win the kingdom, the kingdom of awareness, the kingdom of love, the kingdom of happiness, of being and consciousness. But if you raise a single thought by any kind of effort, any kind of thought, you have missed it again, once for all. Don’t use anything that you command, that is yours. Keep quiet, simply quiet. Don’t make an effort. Don’t think. Not even that much. So simply keep quiet, you will be there where I pointed out. And that is your own abode, your own place, your own true nature. I’m not to introduce you to something else. I’m introducing you to your own center, your own indwelling abode which no one has so far introduced you to. Otherwise, we would not have been here. OK. Good luck.

PAPAJI: So I think first we could talk about skills. You cannot be skillful with arrogance. You have to first surrender the arrogance and then anything you do will be skillful. Anything will come out of this after the arrogance is over, you can be a very good painter, very good musician, very good dancer, you see. This is expression, this is expression. That’s what I believe. After this arrogance, after this ego is over, then this is the debt that you have to pay back for the reward you have received from your own majesty. It will happen by itself, like dancing will come by itself, as I’ve seen. Steps will be very accurate, otherwise you will be out of step in dancing if they’re arrogant steps. Musicians also I have seen some perfect musicians making mistakes.
