And so it is with the whole existence except man. Only man has ideals and shoulds. ‘You should be this and that’ – then you are divided against your own is. Should and is are enemies.
And you cannot be anything other than you are. Let it sink deep into your heart: you can only be that which you are, never anything else. Once this truth sinks deep, that ‘I can only be myself’ all ideals disappear. They are discarded automatically. And when there is no ideal, reality is encountered. Then your eyes are here now, then you are present to what you are. The division, the split, has disappeared. You are one.
