... if you are genuine - in your joy, in your tears, in your dance, sooner or later there will be people who will begin to understand you, who may even join the caravan. I myself started the path alone, then people began to come, and now it is a world caravan! I did not invite anyone; I just did what I felt, what came from my heart.
I am responsible to my heart, not to anyone else in this world. Similarly, you are responsible only to your own being. Do not go against him, because to go against him is to commit suicide, to destroy yourself. What will you win?
Even if people will honor you, be considered a very sober, respectable, respected person, nothing will nourish your being. Nothing gives you insight into life and its immense beauty.
How many millions of people lived before you on this earth? You do not even know their names; Whether they lived or not is no longer important. There were saints and sinners, there were very respected people, there were all sorts of eccentrics, crazy, but they all disappeared - and even a trace of them did not remain on Earth.
Your only concern should be to cherish and protect the qualities that you can take with you when death destroys your body, your mind, because only these qualities will be your companions. Only these are real values, and only people who have attained them truly live - they, and only they; others only pretend to live.
Life itself is not always life. Look at your life. Can you call her a blessing? Can you call her an altar, the gift of existence? Would you like it to be given to you again and again?
Do not listen to the scriptures - listen to your heart. Here is the only commandment I can prescribe: listen carefully, very consciously, and you will never be mistaken. And listening to the heart, you will never be split. Listening to your heart, you will begin to move in the right direction, never even thinking about whether it is right or not.
The whole art of new humanity will be the secret of hearing the heart: consciously, vigilantly, carefully. And, following him, go wherever it leads you. Yes, sometimes it will put you in danger - but then remember, danger is needed to make you mature.Sometimes it makes you lose your way - but remember again, these errors are part of growth. Many times you will fall - rise again, because this is how a person gains strength: falling and getting up again. This is how a person becomes integrated, whole.
