Just Know Your Thoughts are Fishes
Your whole mind, consciousness, your inner space is like an ocean. Each thought you experience is like a fish jumping in that ocean. Understand, your inner space, means the cosmic inner-space is an ocean. Every thought you get, even the idea you having your body is one more thought.
So each thought is a fish jumping on that ocean. See, I have this body which is six feet, is a thought. Now independently too many fishes are jumping for different reasons in the ocean. You start connecting all those fishes and try to make meaning out of that.
Oh, this fish was jumping right. This left, that front, this back. Oh, all the fishes are trying to create a square. They are not. They are jumping for various reasons, various places. But you try to make meaning out of those various fishes jumping.
Same thing you do in the mind also. When various thoughts come up, it is an independent, just jumping – happening. But you try to connect all those thoughts and create a meaning. Oh, I am depressed because I lost my job. As if when you had job, you were not depressed.
The feeling like claustrophobia is the life imprisonment. Feeling claustrophobic is life-imprisonment. All of you feel continuously for some or other reason, claustrophobic – you are caught!
There is No Meaning in Anything
There is no meaning if you think you have a healthy body or sick body. Both have no meaning.
There is no meaning if you think you are wealthy.
There is no meaning if you think you don’t have wealth, you are poor.
You have collected some seashells and persevering them thinking its pearls. But you need to know the truth, it is not pearls. Some glittering stones which are lying in the beach, you collected and safely keeping them in your locker, thinking they are diamonds.
Dream As You Want, Be a High-Achiever
A high-achiever doesn’t even know he achieved so much. I can say one of the great qualities I enjoy about me is – still I don’t feel I work in anyway. When I sit with myself, I don’t feel I am working, that I have created this organization. I don’t feel I contributed something to the world. Just I know, its happening. My personal belief about me and this organization is this only. I do not believe I work.
