so you believe lots of things so you believe before you were born you were somewhere, after you're dead you're going to be somewhere else, everything you believe too many assumptions when you have so many assumptions no way to approach truth, isn't it so? if you want to approach truth, the first thing is you don't assume anything is it so? if you're interested in truth if you are searching for truth that means you have not assumed anything, is it so? if you already made your assumption your just trying to find a confirmation for your assumption, that is not seeking truth a true seeker of truth has no assumptions he's just looking shall we just look or shall we try to confirm your assumptions you want confirmation you're right does that get you any closer? if I tell you, your beliefs are right does it get you any closer to truth? does it? you feel better ok I have been right, but nothing gets solved, isn't it? life doesn't get solved, does it? so confirming your belief systems doesn't mean anything this is a big problem with human beings they want to be right all the time that's the biggest problem in fact it is the basis of all conflict in the world I am right, you are wrong. this is the problem isn't it? isnt it so? what I believe is right what you believe is wrong. isn't this the basis of all problems in the world whether it's within the family,or in the community or in the world or wherever yes? shall we eliminate the problem a little bit the first thing you need to do is after all they're your beliefs,and your beliefs are not original, picked up, isnt it? your priest,or mullah or father or mother somebody put it into you, isn't it so? picked up from somebody, it depends how powerfully they worked on you and they worked pretty powerfully because the business is at stake otherwise so what you assume may have nothing to do with reality now you're trying to understand something which is beyond the physical with physical context it won't happen you're trying to perceive something which is beyond physical through sense perception, such a thing cannot happen now you want to measure the depth of the ocean but you went with a foot scale you will obviously come with wrong conclusions, isn't it so? if you want to measure the depth of the ocean your first business is to, get the right kind of instrument, yes? yes or no? that's your first business that's all I'm saying you want to know something beyond the physical first thing that you need to do is to have a perception which is beyond five senses which can perceive that which is not physical only then you perceive otherwise you can only believe or disbelieve, isn't it? if I tell you god is actually in my pocket this many people can believe me this is a ridiculous thing, Oh we don't believe that, but I can tell you more elaborate story if you want which we can work on and make you believe in, isn't it? right now god is in my pocket this many people believe me, this many people disbelieve me have these people gotten any closer to god than they were before, have they? or have these people gone any further away no, nothing changes, isn't it? so why are we wasting our time trying to confirm our assumptions you must enchance your perception because only by percieving, you will know there is no other way to know, is it so? you will know anything only when you perceive it, till then you do not know it is that a reality? is that a reality? people who are not on talking terms with me is that a reality? if you perceive you know, if you do not perceive you do not know you're unwilling to admit I do not know, so you believe, isn't it? if you are just trying to pass the social test belief is a good way to do it but you want to really know then belief is not a good way to do it belief gives you confidence and fools getting confidence is dangerous do you understand when idiots becomes very confident, it's very very dangerous, isn't it so? do you see intelligent are hesitant stupid are confident have you seen this great confidence because when you simply believe something you'll have great confidence you'll have no doubt about anything because you don't apply yourself to anything you are one hundred percent sure you see george bush, how confident he is he is very confident, isn't it? doesn't he seem like confident very confident he came to India and declared I am a believer, I am a true believer I thought you don't have to say it can't we see? you must be a believer otherwise you don't walk blind into situations if you're somebody with sense, you would look around, isn't it? you would see what is there and what is not there because you are a believer not just in god in so many other things the most sensible way to start your life is what I know, I know what I do not know, I do not know once you come to this sincerely you will see your knowing will constantly go on expanding on a daily basis otherwise the moment you believe you are stagnant belief is death actually Marx said it is the opium religion is a opium because it puts people to sleep, he's very right it's put people to sleep isn't it? hasn't it? sleep is comfortable, what's wrong with it? why sleep? why don't you die? it is even more comfortable, do you know that? because anyway you are a believer after all your god is waiting, why don't you go yes, isn't it? because anyway you know when you die, you'll go to god what is the problem? why are you waiting, going to this hospital and all this nonsense, why don't you go?
