Man lives in a dark night of the soul . Morning happens on the outside but very rarely in the inside . The moment it happens inside you are a christ , you are a buddha . The whole of life is really an opportunity to achieve that inner morning . The inner sun has to rise , and it can rise ; it is just waiting for us . Just a hint from our side and it starts rising , just a small indication , ” I am ready to receive , ” and , ” You are welcome , and the miracle starts happening . We are born to be blissful , it is our birthright . But people are so foolish , they don’t even claim their birthright . They become more interested in what others possess and they start running after those things . They never look within , they never search in their own house . The intelligent person will begin his search from his inner being – that will be his first exploration – because unless I know what is within me , how can I go on searching all over the world ? It is such a vast world . And those who have looked within have found it instantly , immediately . It is not a question of gradual progress , it is a sudden phenomenon , a sudden enlightenment .
