There is a very big difference between doing what I like, and doing what is needed. When you start doing what is needed, there is no such thing as what is it that I like, and what is it that I do not like. If you just transcend this one thing – that I like something, I dislike something. If you just transcend this one thing, 90% of your spiritual work is over. That’s all.
Because the Karma generating machine, the basis of bondage is just this – I like this, I don’t like this. I love this, I hate this. Once you divide creation like this, your ability to touch that dimension, which we call as a source of creation, is out of reach for you. I want you to pay attention, all the children also, okay? Hello? All of you should pay attention to small things, a blade of grass, a leaf, an ant. [pointing to a someone] You paid? You saw an ant? Really closely? You must look at an ant. Whoever made this ant – whoever made this ant, has it been made with meticulous attention? Or simply, okay, just a bloody ant. What do you think? Very well made? Well made or no? Very well made, isn’t it? Fantastic ant, actually. Not just a bloody ant.
So if the creator, if the source of creation is willing to pay that much attention to a tiny little ant, who the hell are you to decide what you like and what you dislike? We like this, we don’t like this. [pointing to someone] You like a cockroach? Why? Suppose, suppose, suppose Shiva came in the disguise of a cockroach, what will you do? Namaskaram – you’ll do? But how will you know it is Shiva, or just another cockroach? How will you know? You don’t know. So better do ‘namaskaram’ to every cockroach. Because who knows which one is Shiva. It’s very simple.
This is what this culture taught you, you see a tree, Shiva. You see a stone, Shiva. You see a dog, Shiva. You see a cow, Shiva. Because you don’t know. You don’t know today what is his disguise. Better not take a chance, isn’t it? Better not take a chance. At least start with the human beings. You don’t know in what disguise he’s come today. Isn’t it? Suppose… who knows – this is why, whoever you see [bow down]. Because who knows today what is the disguise.
If you are like this, grace will be upon you. There is no question. You don’t have to go in search. You don’t have to go in search of God, or Truth. It will rain upon you. It will.
