Don’t Console Yourself With Teddy Bear One-Liners


DEVOTEE: Life is suffering, and then there is God.

ADI DA SAMRAJ: That is one way of putting it, in your humble one-liner fashion. Humble one-liners are sufficient for most people to generate in them a sense of feeling consoled. They are like teddy bears.

So a lot of people reduce the religious life to something like one-liners that they pull out to snuggle with. But how can one settle for a couple of sentences worth of comprehension as the attitude of ones existence? It is a profound matter.


The only way to save yourselves from the destiny of religious one-linerism is to constantly and directly study My Teaching, read the great traditions, study them. Stay in the process of this great “consideration”, instead of just sitting around and ‘smoking the pipe”, rapping out dharma and consoling yourselves with your teddy bear knowledge.
