Don’t Cling to Anything
Papaji: This understanding is a finger pointing to you, who you really are. So don’t try to cling to the finger. Here the finger is understanding. Reject this understanding. Do you follow? Reject this understanding that you have understood and then what is here and there? Don’t try to cling to understanding what you have so far understood. Get rid of all this understanding. What’s left? All understanding so far, up to this moment, you get rid of all understanding so far that you have bagged. Don’t touch this understanding at all. Then tell me where do you go and where do you come; what do you get and what do you lose? Tell me. Don’t try; don’t touch this understanding at all, you see. This has been, itself, a barrier. Impediment was only understanding. This was the only impediment. So reject this impediment right now. Don’t hold any impediment until this moment. Reject everything that you have heard, touched, seen, heard or smelt or felt. So when you have done it find out who you are. Don’t touch any notion up to this instant. Reject this instant tell me who you are.
Questioner: Then there’s no definition.
Papaji: OK. Then there’s no definition. So if you don’t define anything what do you mean by here and there? This is also definition. I understand here. I am very well here and when I go there I don’t maintain that. So here and there is a definition in space and time. So having rejected these definitions just for one second tell me what do you see?
Questioner: I don’t see anything.
Papaji: Anything. If you don’t see anything you are free. You can go wherever you want. You can do whatever you want to do. Don’t touch this only. How simple.
Questioner: Yeah, this is simple. This is true.
Papaji: Yeah, this is simple. This is so simple that you don’t accept it. [Room explodes with laughter.] It is so simple. You want difficulties. You are in habit of getting into difficulty and then asking someone how to remove this difficulty. Now you can ask me a question. I can very well see your face. Maybe millions of suns cannot shine from that place where the sun is getting the shine. Maybe a million suns will not be equal to that shine which you are showing. Now you can speak from there. Do you need to understand what you are now here? What you want to understand?
Questioner: That place there’s no desire to speak. There’s just desire to share this sun, this rising, this beauty.
