This nose, these eyes, this language, these clothes, these thoughts, they are all influences. Influences by themselves are no guarantors of suffering.
Influences are the celebration of life.
In fact, in being totally open to influences, you are leading a total life.
The teacher is one who is totally open to influences, who is totally available to the situation. The disciple is one who lives in standards in benchmarks.
To him, this directionlessness, this non-resistance is his total oneness with existence.
The real one has nothing to defend, so he never defends.
And after calling him all the names, you are left with no more names, that’s when you fall silent and that is teaching.
Do not try to judge it on your moral platforms. That judgment will not be wrong, it will be simply irrelevant.
If you have a direction then you are not directionless.
The direction does not keep on changing. Your ways keep on changing. The destination that you have set for yourself that does not change. Your destination is a pleasure.
