Sit at the centre, rule the circle

Question: Sir, what does the name of the group ‘You belong here’ signify?

Speaker: The name ‘You Belong Here’ signifies that our real home cannot be at a disturbed point. ‘xyz’ means others and ‘t’ means past and future.

When the mind is free of the conditioning of others and thoughts of past and future, then one is at home. You Belong Here.

Sitting at the origin, go wherever you want to. Sitting firmly in the present, think freely about past and future. Just don’t leave the origin.

Keep sitting at the center. And rule the circle.

Question: What does being at zero actually mean?

Speaker: Being at zero means not being a slave of ‘xyz’ (objects-others) and ‘t'(past-future).

We have defined ourselves as:

P= f(x,y,z,t)


=f(uncles,aunties, neighbors, friends, known people, unknown people, media, rumours, all history, so much future)

We don’t define ourselves as


So ‘P’ is disturbed by others.


Question: Sir, one should not make decisions and promises when he is too happy or too sad. Why?

Speaker: And decisions and promises get made only because one is happy or sad. Can we live free of decisions and promises?

In spontaneous response, is there a space for decisions? In clarity, is there a need for decisions?


Question: Sir what is the definition of champion? How can everybody be a champion?

Speaker: There is no need to pretend that you are a champion. There is no need to believe that you are a champion.

You ACTUALLY are a champion.Champion of champions.

Each one of us is so big a champion that he remains a champion even after being defeated a thousand times.

A champion is one is who is not defeated even in defeat.

Neither victory makes me big nor does defeat make me small. That’s a champion.
