That is the only alternative:
War or meditation?
War or spiritual revolution?
And the war has to be understood as the culmination of our whole human history. It is not coming from the sky – it is coming from our past, accumulating more and more anger, more and more violence, more and more weapons. The First World War was smaller, the second become bigger. The third is going to be total.
Since it is a total war, every person has to understand his responsibility. In small wars it was nothing to be worried about. If it was going on in Vietnam… who cares about Vietnam? If it is happening in Afghanistan, who cares? -- small piece of humanity are involved. But this time it is the whole existence of life and all living beings with us: trees, roses, and lotuses…
And we are coming closer to the point where man can become a superman. Now we cannot afford a war. We cannot afford a global suicide. We have to understand how to transcend the mind that the past has create and programmed for wars destruction and violence.
That’s my whole work: to erase the past from your mind and give you a present orientation to look at reality with clean eyes. And your future will be golden if your present is clean. Out of this clean presence will arise a new future, which will not have any continuity with the past; it will be a quantum leap.
