NOW BEING FREE FROM THE CONCEPT OF GOD, IS OUR NEWLY FOUND
You will not be entangled in the ego, because the ego is part of your mind, just as God is
part of your mind. Both are fictions; they both are relatives. The moment you drop God ...
If you have guts to drop God, you certainly will have guts to drop the ego -- that is a
smaller God within you. And once the bigger brother is dead, the little cousin-brother will
die. First you have to kill the big brother; it is his reflection in you. Your God is an egoist,
an arch-egoist, and he gives you the idea of the ego.
Don't get confused between dignity and ego. Dignity is very humble, very simple, very
innocent; it belongs to the trees. When they blossom in spring, you just look and watch
their pride, their dignity. Just watch when a peacock is dancing. Those psychedelic
colors, and the beautiful dance ... do you think there is any ego? But there is certainly
Dignity is a totally different phenomenon, it is self-respect. Ego is domination over
others. Dignity is just standing on your own feet, independence, freedom; it is not
domination over others. The moment you start thinking of dominating, you are falling
into the trap of the ego. And God is the greatest ego because he created everything, he
dominates everything. He is present everywhere, he is all-powerful. And his reflection in
the priests ... The pope claims that he is infallible. Now this is ego.
A man of dignity, a man of self-respect will not say such things. Certainly he will walk
straight with his head raised in dignity. He will not walk like a slave, surrendered,
subdued. He will walk like a lion and roar like a lion. But that is your intrinsic energy,
your intrinsic power.
The power that depends on others creates the ego. The power that comes from within
your own sources of life creates dignity. Meditation brings tremendous dignity, a great
grace, but not even a shadow of ego is found in it.
If you are capable of murdering God, you will certainly be capable of murdering his
image in you. In fact, the moment God is no longer there, you will suddenly be surprised.
Where has the ego gone? If the moon is not there, the reflection in the lake of the moon
To me, egos are reflections of one moon in different ponds, in different lakes, in different
oceans, in different rivers -- millions of reflections. But just remove the moon and all the
reflections are removed. You don't have to remove every reflection. It will take millennia
to remove all those reflections. And in fact, if the moon remains, you cannot remove the
So I am hitting directly on God's head. Zen masters have been hitting on poor disciples'
heads. I am hitting to the very source from where your ego is arising. God removed, you
will not find the ego at all, it is a reflection.
The Bible says, God created man in his own image. This causes ego. You are the highest
creature in existence because God created you in his own image, and he created all the
animals for you to eat. These are your religions, scriptures which are telling you to
destroy the ecology of existence, which are telling you to destroy beautiful animals which
bring grace and joy all around you. But God himself says in your holy scriptures, "I have
created everything for your use." He is giving you the first incentive for the ego.
Once God is removed, you will simply find your ego is gone. It was the shadow, the
reflection of God. And then you will find a totally new phenomenon, a dignity which is
not a domination over others, which is not superiority over others. It is simply the joy that
existence loves you, that existence creates you, that existence needs you, that you are not
accidental. This gives you dignity, this gives you honor, and it is not dependent on others.
It comes from your own innermost experience of your being.
The moment you find yourself existential, that you belong to the whole cosmos, and the
whole cosmos belongs to you, there arises a tremendous splendor in your being --
Himalayan peaks of consciousness, Pacific depths of consciousness. That brings you the
You realize for the first time you are not a slave.
You realize for the first time you are not a created creature.
You realize for the first time that existence is your home, you are not an outsider, and
existence is nourishing you every moment.
There must be a certain purpose, a certain destiny that existence is seeking through you to
reach, a certain height of consciousness, a certain height of love, a certain height of
compassion, understanding, wisdom, enlightenment. Existence is trying in every possible
way to create a buddha in your very innermost being. The moment you are a buddha,
there is dignity without any superiority.
There is dignity in a rose flower. Do you think it has any power over anybody? It is so
delicate, so vulnerable, but it has tremendous dignity. When it is dancing in the sun, in
the rain, in the wind, it knows existence has created in him one of the most beautiful
Dignity arises out of meditation.
Ego arises out of mind.
So don't be worried about it.
Meditation will take care.
You will not become egoist, that's an impossibility.
