New comes from here

Everyone is trying to create a future for you. They all are trying to take you somewhere, and whenever there is talk of progress, of betterment, of G.D.P growth, and such things, you are always being pulled away from what you are. But if you have a political leader who win votes by offering you a better future; then don’t you see what you are doing?
But you love those leaders — don’t you? — who offer you a better future.
Maybe, you need a totally different kind of mind; a totally different kind of politics; an entirely new way of living.
Maybe the shopping mall, and the ashram are part of one rotten system, and both sustain each other. Maybe the office, and the weekend retreat are part of one system, and both sustain each other; maybe both have to go together. The commercial centre and the spiritual centre both have to go together because both co-exist, and both can ‘only’ co-exist. Maybe you need an entirely new world; a totally new humanity. But the new comes only from that which is immediate.
The new will not come from a distance, the new comes from here.
