Stop having images. Your disappointment comes from your fantasies. You want even Truth to behave as per your expectation. You want the doctor to prescribe medicines as per your demand and if the medicine does not taste right, you say, “The medicine is not right.”
You have been told that the lovers of God become peaceful, and their eyes are always half-closed, and they are smiling even as you slaughter them, and they can go for two-thousand days without food. You have read all these things and you do not find them in your life. So just by comparison, you burn yourself in frustration.
Life is what life is.
It has no obligation to conform to your images and whatever is happening around you is a gateway to the Truth.
Pay attention to it, come close to it, and you see a way opening up to you.
Just come close.
The magic lies in not rejecting life. Come close to whatever is happening, and see whether or not a road opens up for you. Just try.
And when I say, “Whatever is happening,” it is all inclusive: good, bad, pleasant, ugly, whatever is there. Just see what it is and you will only hear the call of the Truth.
There is nothing else that is there.
