This is a beginning
The beginning of a new life
The beginning of a new vision
The beginning of a new way of being.
You will have to drop much, you will have
To disconnect yourself from all that is gone,
From the past.
Don’t carry it any more.
It is an unnecessary burden
It hinders growth, it paralyses.
Slowly slowly it becomes such a mountain
That one is crushed underneath the mountain.
One should be capable of dying to the past
Every moment so that it is never accumulated.
That’s the path of sannyas
Dying to the past every moment
So that you are always young and fresh and alive
So that you are always present in the present.
To be present in the present
Is to be present before god.
