All this weighing, selecting, choosing, exchanging -- it is all
shopping in some 'spiritual' market. What is your business there? What
deal are you out to strike? When you are not out for business, what is
the use of this endless anxiety of choice?
Restlessness takes you nowhere. Something prevents you from seeing that
there is nothing you need. Find it out and see its falseness. It is like
having swallowed some poison and suffering from unquenchable craving
for water. Instead of drinking beyond all measure, why not eliminate the
poison and be free of this burning thirst?
Questioner: I shall have to eliminate the ego!
The sense 'I am a person in time and space' is the poison. In a way,
time itself is the poison. In time all things come to an end and new are
born, to be devoured in their turn. Do not identify yourself with time,
do not ask anxiously: 'what next, what next?' Step out of time and see
it devour the world. Say: 'Well, it is in the nature of time to put an
end to everything. Let it be. It does not concern me. I am not
combustible, nor do I need to collect fuel'.
