I am not a thinker in the sense in which the word is used. In fact, I have been pointing out to those that come to listen to me that man's problems cannot be solved through thinking. There is no question of the world's problems being solved by the thinking of anybody. This is the essence of my communication to those that come to listen to me. At the same time, I point out that it is also not possible to communicate because no communication is possible and no communication is necessary.
So how do I go about this funny way? By making people realize that they cannot solve their problems through thinking. They are suffering and the suffering must come to an end. How can man put an end to his suffering? Naturally, it runs counter to all traditional approaches, both the Indian and Western religious approaches, and also the modern approaches, the psychologists. And through conversation and communication we try to understand that it is really not possible to understand or communicate what I am saying.
In other words, my objective in carrying on the conversation is to silence, in a way, and put them in a state of silence. And in that silence something can probably happen, and will certainly happen, that's all.
So I try to meet their arguments. They come with preconceived ideas, concepts and ideals, and then try to argue and debate with me. My approach is to suggest a counterargument and thereby neutralize their argumentative approach to the problem. This is all I do.
We all talk of the mind. The religious thinkers, the psychologists—all talk of the mind. So every individual has to discover for himself, by himself and without relying on any authority, be it religious, scientific or psychological. It has to be your discovery, otherwise it has no value.
The state of being I am describing is a state where there is no effort at all. I am just a mirror here reflecting things exactly.
