There is another dimension within you,
for which the birth has not happened,
nor will the death happen to it.
Only if you touch that dimension,
you have something called as a future.
Otherwise, you have just karma.
Karma means, you are repeating your past as future. You may be changing the colour, you may be changing the style of how you do it, but still the same stuff, nothing different. Same stuff; what the caveman was doing, you are still doing the same stuff. Style and capability might have changed, but it’s the same stuff. Isn’t it so?
This is like anchor. This is an anchor; you throw in an anchor, and you’re trying to move your boat. At the most, it can only go in circles, isn’t it?
So we’re trying to pull in the anchor, or cut the rope which holds us to the anchor, so that next time we power, it will go away.
So the whole spiritual sadhana is based on this, that you want to become free.
Free does not mean you have to forget, but you have to become free from the memory which rules you, and the memory is not just in your mind; every cell in your body carries memory. This much is very clear to us, through genetic science and other things, you are carrying the memory of your forefathers, and you’re still behaving like them. You’re still having a nose like them; look at this; unless you had a nose job done recently. Yes?
There are many many symbols, or there are many many aspects in the body, which clearly say that the memory of these eighty-four Creations are still there in your body. It is there in every atom in the Existence.
So what you’re trying to cleanse is, you want to cleanse it from the memory, because this memory binds you. This memory gives you a sense of belonging, at the same time this memory binds you; it doesn’t let you go.
So when you do sadhana, you are trying to cut everything, because without cutting that, without cutting your anchor, you’re not going to move ahead.
So, “Why this memory is holding me back?”
It is that memory which has given integrity and stability to your body and the structure of who you are right now. Without that, without this memory, this body couldn’t be created. Without the memory of a single-celled animal being within you, without all that information being carried through the evolutionary process and you sitting here, without that memory, this body cannot be structured and held together.
So memory is not your enemy;
it is just that you don’t know how to hold it.
You are into it, that’s the problem. You are into it.
Now, you want to get out of it,
you want to make use of the memory,
but you don’t want to be used by your memory.
That is spiritual sadhana.
You want to have a future,
which is different from your past.
On all our intertwining karmic paths,
