God is your inner voice. No priest is needed, you need not have any instructions from anybody about your life. But one thing has to be done: you have to move inward so that you can hear the still, small voice. Once it is heard, once you know how it can be heard, your whole life is transformed. Then whatever you do is right.

Socrates says knowledge is virtue. By knowledge he does not mean knowledgeability, by knowledge he means intuitive insight, knowing. His statement is tremendously significant. Intuitive knowing is virtue. He does not say what virtue is and what sin is: intuitive knowing is virtue. The man who knows intuitively, the man who can hear his own innermost core, is bound to be virtuous, he cannot be otherwise. It is inevitable.

Once heard, you cannot go against it because nobody can be so foolish, it is unimaginable. My whole effort here – and this has been the effort of all the masters; Buddha, Jesus, Zarathustra – is to help the disciple to listen to his own center. I am not giving you a discipline, I just have to help you to listen to your own center and then to follow your own heart. That will be virtue, and that is real character, that is real morality. But it comes from your innermost core; it is nothing imposed from the outside.
