What is the ‘right’ personality to achieve success?

If you break the shell of your personality, you will simply be presence – as life is, as the Divine is, just a Presence.

If you break the shell of your personality, you will become just your presence. As life is. As divine is. Just a presence. Life is just a presence. Persona or personality is something that you put on to conduct activity in the world. To go through social situations. It’s like you want to walk in the garden, wear your shoes. You come home, you take off your shoes. There’s some people who go to bed with shoes on, that’s their problem. This is the same thing that’s happening to a whole lot of people. The personality that they put on to transact with the world has gotten stuck to them in such a way that they cannot keep it aside. This is something that you have to learn to do. All that you have created in the form of your personality, which is an accumulation of memory, which is an accumulation of past experiences of life, you must be able to keep it aside. This is what Holi is about, to burn it. Well if you cannot burn it, if you think it’s valuable, at least you must learn to keep it aside. Try this, at least for a period of time every day, start with minutes and go into hours, that you actually sit here without any sense of personality. Just sitting in one place without any sense of personality. Just as a presence. Because life is a presence. If you do not feel that presence then you miss life. It is a most overwhelming presence in the universe – life and the source of life are not two separate things. If you taste the presence of life, you will also taste the presence of the divine or the source of life. It is in knowing this that you are fulfilled.
