And the gap becomes bigger every day because life goes on, the river goes on, and you are stuck somewhere. You have become obsessed with someplace. You are no more part of the flowing river, you are clinging to some bank, and that clinging has become your security, your safety. You are now afraid to move with life.
What we are doing here is to help you see where you have stopped growing and to help you to move from there … because to stop is to die.
To become dormant is to become dead. To become stagnant simply means nothing else except that your life will stink.
And the whole world is stinking for the simple reason that people are pretending to be somebody who they are not, and whatsoever they are, they are repressing it. But it comes up again and again; it surfaces again and again.
So there are two things to be done by the sannyasin: one: he should try to see where he has stopped growing — all the meditations and the growth groups and all the work that is going on in this commune is to make you aware of where you are stuck — and second, he should drop his clinging and start moving with the river.
The moment you start flowing, great joy arises, the heart starts dancing. You are born anew. This is resurrection.
