The very idea of going somewhere is basically wrong. Nothing is going anywhere. Existence is now, here; it is not moving toward a particular destiny. There is no destiny; there is no ultimate purpose. But we have been taught for centuries that existence is moving toward a certain goal, and we have been also taught to live ambitiously, to prove that we are something, somebody... But existence is absolutely purposeless.
I am not saying that it is not significant. Precisely because it is purposeless it is significant, but its significance is not that of the marketplace. It is a totally different kind of significance; the significance of a rose flower, the significance of a bird on the wing, the significance of poetry, music. It is an end unto itself.
We are not to become something - we are already it. This is the whole message of all the awakened ones - that you are not to achieve something; it has already been given to you. It is a gift from existence. You are already where you should be; you cant be anywhere else. There is nowhere to go, nothing to achieve. Because there is nowhere to go and nothing to achieve, you can celebrate. Then there is not hurry, no worry, no anxiety, no anguish, no fear of being a failure. You can’t fail;. In the very nature of things, it is impossible to fail, because there is no question of success at all.
It is just a conditioning by the society that creates the problem in you... And what I am telling you here is just the opposite of it. I am talking about being, not about becoming.
Future does not exist, it is as non-existential as the past. The past is no more, the future is not yet, only the present is. And in the present, there is no possibility for desiring, no possibility of being ambitious, not space enough for the ego to exist.
Whenever you are now and here, there is no ego to be found. You are a pure silence.
