  • silence shared in words

  • Silence Shared in Words

  • The way I talk

  • is a little strange.

  • No speaker in the world

  • talks like me

  • technically it is wrong;

  • it takes almost double the time!

  • But those speakers

  • have a different purpose

  • my purpose is absolutely

  • different from theirs.

  • They speak because

  • they are prepared for it;

  • they are simply repeating

  • something that they have rehearsed.

  • Secondly,

  • they are speaking

  • to impose a certain ideology,

  • a certain idea on you.

  • Thirdly, to them speaking is an art

  • they go on refining it.

  • As far as I am concerned,

  • I am not

  • what they call

  • a speaker or an orator.

  • It is not an art to me or a technique;

  • technically I go on becoming worse every day!

  • But our purposes are totally different.

  • I don't want

  • to impress you

  • in order to manipulate you.

  • I don't speak for

  • any goal

  • to be achieved through convincing you.

  • I don't speak to convert you into a Christian, into a Hindu or a Mohammedan,

  • into a theist or an atheist

  • these are not my concerns.

  • My speaking is really

  • one of my devices for meditation.

  • Speaking has never been used this way:

  • I speak not to give you a message,

  • but to stop your mind functioning.

  • I speak

  • nothing

  • prepared

  • I don't know myself

  • what is going to be the next word;

  • hence I never commit any mistake.

  • One commits a mistake if one is prepared.

  • I never forget anything, because one forgets

  • if one has been remembering it.

  • So I speak with a freedom

  • that perhaps nobody has ever spoken with.

  • I am not concerned whether I am consistent,

  • because that is not the purpose.

  • A man who wants to convince you

  • and manipulate you through

  • his speaking

  • has to be consistent,

  • has to be logical,

  • has to be rational,

  • to overpower your reason.

  • He wants to dominate through words.

  • One of the very famous books of Dale Carnegie is

  • about

  • speaking

  • and influencing people

  • as an art

  • it has been sold second only to The Holy Bible

  • but I will fail his examinations.

  • He used to run

  • a course in America

  • to train missionaries, to train professors,

  • and to train orators. I will fail on all counts.

  • First, I have no motivation to convert you;

  • I have no desire anywhere to impress you.

  • And I don't remember what I have said yesterday,

  • so I cannot

  • bother about being consistent -- that is too much worry.

  • I can easily contradict myself,

  • because I am not trying

  • to have

  • a communication

  • with your intellectual,

  • rational mind.

  • My purpose is so unique

  • I am using

  • words

  • just to create

  • silent gaps.

  • The words are not important

  • so I can say anything contradictory,

  • anything absurd, anything unrelated,

  • because my purpose is

  • just to create gaps.

  • The words are secondary;

  • the silences between those words are primary.

  • This is simply a device to give you a glimpse of meditation.

  • And once you know that it is possible for you,

  • you have traveled far

  • in the direction of your own being.

  • Most of the people in the world don't think that it is possible for mind to be silent.

  • Because they don't think it is possible, they don't try.

  • How to give people a taste of meditation

  • was my

  • basic reason to speak,

  • so I can go on speaking eternally

  • it does not matter what I am saying.

  • All that matters

  • is that I give you a few chances

  • to be silent,

  • which you find difficult

  • on your own in the beginning.

  • I cannot force you to be silent,

  • but I can create a device in which

  • spontaneously you are bound to be silent.

  • I am speaking, and in the middle of a sentence,

  • when you were expecting another word to follow,

  • nothing follows

  • but a silent gap.

  • And your mind

  • was looking to listen,

  • and waiting for something to follow,

  • and does not want to miss it

  • naturally it becomes silent.

  • What can the poor mind do?

  • If it was well known

  • at what points I will be silent,

  • if it was declared to you

  • that on such and such points I will be silent,

  • then you could manage to think

  • you would not be silent.

  • Then you know: "This is the point where he is going to be silent,

  • now I can have a little

  • chit-chat with myself."

  • But because it comes absolutely

  • suddenly....

  • I don't know myself why at certain points I stop.

  • Anything like this,

  • in any orator in the world,

  • will be condemned,

  • because an orator

  • stopping again and again

  • means he is

  • not well prepared,

  • he has not done the homework.

  • It means that his memory

  • is not reliable,

  • means

  • that he cannot find, sometimes,

  • what word to use.

  • But because

  • it is not

  • oratory,

  • I am not concerned about the people who will be condemning me

  • I am concerned with you.

  • And it is not only here,

  • but far away...

  • anywhere in the world

  • where people will be listening to the video

  • or to the audio,

  • they will come to the same

  • silence.

  • My success is not

  • to convince you,

  • my success is to give you a real taste

  • so that you can become confident

  • that meditation is not a fiction,

  • that the state of no-mind

  • is not just a

  • philosophical idea,

  • that it is a reality;

  • that you are capable of it, and that it does not need any special

  • qualifications
