Even the science is a ‘seeking’. And the seeking in the science is in the limited area. Because science is diversified. Somebody is a physicist, he will seek truths in physics.
Some in the medical science, some in the chemistry, like that. And they go on diversified, all the time into different lines of seeking. But the truth is different. In the area of truth, if you have to seek, then the first thing you have to have, humility; that so far you have not known the truth.
If you think you have known the truth, then nobody can force you. But if you are humble about it, that you don’t know the truth and also that you should have the purest desire to know the truth. These are special times- as I said, because, there are so many seekers who are born. And they have to get, what really they are seeking. So far there have been lots of theories about the truth. But it never happened that they knew the truth as reality. So there has been diversification, even in all those theories. Some say, this religion is good, some say, that religion is good and all kinds of diversification started.
And science being an amoral area, there was no connection established between science and absolute truth. Science is not absolute, it is always challenged.But truth is One. It’s singular. And it cannot be challenged. But the main thing is, the truth which is the absolute truth, has to become the reality. As you have chemistry, you have to say, periodic law, as a reality. Also in physics, in the same way, it has to be a reality. So the seeking of truth, when it reaches that point, where the truth becomes reality, it is an absolute truth. So what is the absolute truth?
I can give you as, a theory; and it has to be proved. In a way it goes, in a way, goes beyond the field of modern science. But it is a science. It is an absolute science, which cannot be challenged, which cannot be changed. And which everyone knows as the truth. If I say something, it’s a theory to you, but it can be proved. We don’t know much about ourselves.
We don’t know why we get those diseases which are incurable. We don’t know why people go mad or lunatic type. Schizophrenic on the physical level. Also, we don’t know, how these genes are within us. And how can we change our genes? I can go on and on and on on about these states but the main thing, is that I tell you the theory of absolute truth. For that, you don’t need any academic qualification. You don’t need any elegance or any kind of very ritualistic ideas. It is very very simple.
It is very simple because It is vital. For example, we know how to breathe. Nobody has told us how to breathe. But we know. How? Because it is very vital, so this knowledge is within us. Now the time has come, it is vital, that we should all know the absolute truth. The absolute truth is, that, you are not this body, this mind, not this emotions, not this ego but you are the pure spirit. The scientist can challenge and they should. Because you can’t see a spirit under a microscope.
So, what I’m telling you is, about, that you are the pure spirit, is a fact, is a reality, which has to work out in you. Then the scientist will have to accept, that, it is a science; science of spirit. … So one has to go beyond, this circumference of knowledge, to know, the pure knowledge. And that I call as a modern, meta-modern discovery.
Now you are the spirit, is said by so many saints, by incarnations by everybody else. This is not a new statement. But scientist always thought, that the area of saintliness, spirituality is not connected with them. But whether you are a scientist, a doctor, a philosopher, a poet, a politician, all of you are nothing but pure spirits.
