“Zen does not talk about God at all, but only of godliness:
a certain quality, a fragrance which is everywhere.
Only when you have the capacity to learn will you be able to see it.
All that is needed on your part is the capacity to be silent, receptive, welcoming, open”
“That is my crime, that I create a doubt in you about your mind. I want you to understand that it is not your mind; and your search should be to find your own mind. To be under somebody else’s impact is to remain psychologically a slave. And life is not for slavery, it is to taste freedom. There is something like truth, but with this mind you can never know it, because this mind is full of lies, repeated century after century. You can find the truth when you put this mind completely aside and look at existence with fresh eyes, like a newborn child; then whatever you experience is truth. And if you remain constantly alert not to allow others to interfere with your inner growth, there comes a moment when you become so attuned with existence, so one with existence…Only this experience is religious experience. It is not Jewish, it is not Christian, it is not Hindu. How can any experience be Jewish, Hindu or Mohammedan? You can never see its ridiculousness. You eat something and you say it is delicious-but is it Christian, or Hindu, or Buddhist? You taste something and you say it is sweet-but is it communist? Is it materialist or spiritualist?
These questions are nonsense. It is simply sweet, it is simply delicious. When you feel existence immediately, without any mediator, with no mind given to you by anybody else, you taste something which transforms you-which makes you enlightened, awakened; which brings you to the highest peak of consciousness.
A greater fulfilment, there is not.
A higher contentment, there is not.
A deeper relaxation, there is not.
You have come home. Life becomes a joy, a song, a dance, a celebration-and I call this life religious.”

"There is only one path, which goes inwards, where you will not find a single human being, where you will only find silence, peace."
