SRI BHAGAVAN: "What is inner integrity? Inner integrity is just seeing what is there. Not trying to condemn it as good or bad, right or wrong or giving explanations or saying how should it be in 2012? What should I change? I am still self-centered. I am still ugly. I am still struggling. Who asks you to struggle? Who asks you to change? Not at all.
All that we are telling is please see what is going on. It's very alive inside you. From moment to moment it's changing. It's as alive as an ocean. The waves are coming up and down. Your waves - all waves go away. Similarly thoughts are coming - going away. Emotions are coming - they are going away,
Personalities emerging and they are going away. Whole drama is taking place inside you. You are nothing but the universe. We are just saying: please don't condemn it. Don't try to change it. There is selfishness. Yes. It is not 'your' selfishness. It is not 'his' selfishness. It is selfishness.
Suffering is not 'your' suffering. Suffering is suffering whether you have it or he has it. We are all one. It's just there with us for millions of years. And it will be so until the brain changes.
So, you are selfish. Yes. That's the truth. You are rubbish pits and septic tanks. You are a rubbish pit and someone else is septic tank. That is what we have in the collective consciousness. It is there. You have gathered it over millions of years. Nothing we can do about it.
I am not asking you to become saints. Not at all! I want you to become sages. Who is a sage? He doesn’t think what is right or wrong. He is just responds to life - that's all. He could be violent in a moment he could be a peaceful another moment.
He could help you a moment,he cannot help you another moment. He is just responding to situations as they arise. He sees perfect action. You cannot call it good action or bad action or right or wrong. He just responds. And he does not go back and think whether it is a right thing or a wrong thing. He keeps responding. He is just seeing what is going on. The content is not important for him.
So please just look at your ugliness. And then soon you stop calling it ugly. It could look very beautiful also. What looks useful could look ugly also. Therefore you must take a neutral stand. Not that you take a neutral stand. It must become neutral. Not that you behave like an enlightened one. No. You have to be enlightened.
Not that you behave like an awakened person and you put in effort. If you do that you will never get there. The problem with you is you attend level 1, level 2, this and that and then all of that becomes concepts.
And then you want to get there. You want to achieve that. And then you are doomed. There is nothing to achieve, nowhere to go. Everything is perfect. See things are perfect.
And what will help you? Inner integrity. As you go deeper and deeper it becomes easier and easier. And that is very enjoyable because conflict ceases. Because inner integrity is just seeing what is there."
