Mad With the Formless Condition
I have always been insane since the day I was born,
mad with this Formless Condition
that is only vaguely associated with my body-mind.
I have been led by all kinds of psychic phenomena and intuition into my entire life of sadhana and Teaching. That is just the way it is. If this is unacceptable to the common world, then I will just have to live outside the common world. If it is acceptable to devotees, then I can live with them to the degree that they will live with me and make right use of my availability.
This process does not reinforce people’s illusions
about how it is supposed to work
or their idea of the orderly universe.
It is orderly in some profound and paradoxical sense, but not orderly as people expect orderly to be. If life were orderly as people would like it to be, there would be no death or suffering or disease or difficulty. The insanity of my Teaching Work is part of the “order” of this particular manifestation. When you die, you just sort of explode out of this realm and go on to something else. It is a very strange, weird, total universe of God.
What can I tell you?
That is the way it is.
God is crazy just like me.
In fact, God is crazy just like vou.
You are God, and all of this is God.
That is the way it has always been obvious to me. I have always been very attentive to people because I do not see any difference between God and them or myself and them. It is all the same thing. And so I just play it as it comes. This is God-business. I have never become serious about the human-business. I have never been involved in anything but the God-business, and the God-business is very strange and paradoxical and wild.
That is the way God is, that is what Reality is, and neither you nor I have a thing to say about it. When we are busy saying things about it and trying to manipulate it and change it and make it something else, being human so-called, we interfere with our existence and make everybody suffer.
