No Way Out "All our experiences, spiritual or otherwise, are the basic cause of our suffering The body is not interested in anything that you are interested in. That is the battle that is going on all the time From his very presence I felt "What! This man -- how can he help me? This fellow who is reading comic strips, cutting vegetables, playing with this, that or the other -- how can this man help me? Nothing happened; I looked at him, and he looked at me. I sat there. There were a lot of questions inside, silly questions -- so, "The questions have not disappeared.
I have been sitting here for two hours, and the questions are still there. All right, let me ask him some questions" -- because at that time I very much wanted moksha. This part of my background, moksha, I wanted. Nobody before had said "I can give you," but this man said "I can give you, but can you take it? He answered in a very strange way: "There are no steps leading you to that. But this question "Can you take it? What is it that he has? So, the question formulated itself: "What is that state that all those people - - Buddha, Jesus and the whole gang -- were in?
How is he different from me? What others say or what he is saying is of no importance to me; anybody can do what he is doing. What is there? He was also born from parents. He has his own particular ideas about the whole business. Some people say something happened to him, but how is he different from me? What is there: What is that state?
Nobody can give that state; I am on my own. I have to go on this uncharted sea without a compass, without a boat, with not even a raft to take me. I am going to find out for myself what the state is in which that man is.
