When almost ninety-nine percent of your unconscious territory has become conscious, you start growing flowers . And when one hundred percent of the territory is reclaimed, when nothing of the unconscious remains in you , your flowers release their fragrance.
In the East we have called that fragrance buddhahood , awakening . In the West the same phenomenon has been called christ consciousness . It is the same . Only the words differ .
And unless one has become a pure fragrance ,one’s life has gone as a sheer wastage. Only with this release of your innermost splendor do you enter the kingdom , the kingdom of the infinite and the eternal . Then there is no death , no birth . Then you are here and now forever . The body will disappear but not you ; the mind will disappear but not you . And to know that which abides and abides forever is to know the truth.
