Don't postpone anything beautiful until tomorrow. And postpone any-
thing bad as much as you can - death may come in between, and
you will have been saved from doing something bad. If you get the
idea to do something bad, postpone it for as long as you can. Death
is not very far away - if you can just postpone some of your bad
actions for ten or twenty years, your life could become divine. Death
is not far away, if someone is able to postpone his evil acts for a few
years, his life can become pure. Death is not far away - and someone
who postpones to do something good for too long will not experience
any bliss in life.
I want to remind you that there is an urgency to do something good.
And if you are feeling something good, then just begin with that.
Don't think and postpone it until tomorrow. A person who thinks a-
bout doing something tomorrow does not really want to do it. "I'll do
it tomorrow" is a way of postponing. If you don't want to do some-
thing, you should be clear that you don't want to do it; that is
another matter. But to postpone until tomorrow is dangerous. The
person who postpones something until tomorrow has in a way
postponed it forever.
If something in life feels right, then the moment it feels right is also
the moment to act on it. You have to begin in that moment.
So keep in mind the urgency of doing things that are good and of
delaying things that are wrong. Also keep in mind that the keys that
I have given you to experiment with about goodness and truth are
not intellectual doctrines. In other words. I am not interested in ex-
plaining doctrines to you. I am not interested in academics. I have
told you about these keys to presuade you to act on them. And if
you act on them they can do something for you. If you are ready to
act on them, these keys will help you. And if you use them, they will
transform you. These keys are very alive, they are like fire: if you
kindle them even a little, you can experience the birth of a new man
The first birth we get from our parents. It is not a birth, it is only the
arrival of one more new death. It is another cycle that will end in death. It is not a birth it is only taking on a new body.
There is another birth which you don't get through your parents, but
which happens through meditation. And that is the real birth. It is only
after this birth that one becomes a dwija, twice b-born. One has to give this birth to oneself. So don't feel satisfied and at rest until you have known this second birth within yourself. Until then, no energy should remain dorment within you. So gather all your energies and start moving.
If you have worked hard, with determination, on the few keys I have givenyou, very soon you will find that a new person is being born within you, the birth of a totally new man. And the outer world will become new to the same extent as this new man has been born within you.
There is great light in the world, great brilliance and tremendous beauty, if only we have the eyes to see it and a heart to receive it. And the eyes to see and the heart to receive can be born in you. And this is the only reason that I have shared all these things with you during these last three days.
In a sense, there are not many points - in fact there are only a few. I
have spoken about two points: that life should be pure and conscious-
ness should be empty. I have said only these two things - that life should be pure and consciousness should be empty. In fact, I have said only one thing - that consciousness should be empty. The purification of life is only a foundation for this.
When consciouness is empty, that emptyness gives you the capacity to see and unveil the hidden secret of existence.
