"On the path of love celebration grows of its own accord, and dancing and singing, and life is no more a struggle but a let-go. And there are things which happen only when you are in a let-go. All that is great happens only when you are in a let-go. If you are in an effort to conquer, you will conquer only small things.
Conquerors can become at the most Adolf Hitlers, Napoleons or Alexanders. They never become Buddhas – they cannot. To become a Buddha or to become a Christ, one has to be not in the mood of conquering at all, but, on the contrary, to be conquered by god one has to be feminine. That is the secret of love: to be feminine, to be passive, to be open, vulnerable, ready to absorb, ready to be pregnant, just to be a womb, and all that is needed comes. That’s what I call trust – that it comes; whenever your real need is there, it comes. It never comes by your search. It comes only when your real need is there. When you are really thirsty, your thirst will be quenched.
That’s what Jesus means when he says ’Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. Ask and it shall be given. Seek and ye shall find.’ But by ’seeking’ he does not mean an active search, because he says ’The kingdom of god is within you.’
How can you seek it actively? Where can you go to search for it? There is nowhere to go. One has to relax into oneself. The seeking has to be passive,
the knocking has to be passive. It has to be a kind of prayer in love. "
