Attention is like a fire, when that attention is there that thing which is sorrow, the loneliness, the pain, the anxiety, the tears, when there is that complete attention all that goes, disappears. Attention is a flame.

Time is now. Time is contained, the past, the future is now. So death is now. That means if I am attached to my wife, to my something or other, to my furniture – aren’t you attached to something? – and death comes and says, ‘That is the end of it.’ Cuts it. So can you be free of the attachment? Therefore you are living, living and dying at the same time. Do it, sir, and you will see what an extraordinary thing it is. If you are attached to your memories, to your experience, to your failure, to your ambition, all that is going to come to an end. So can you live with death, which is to end your ambitions now? And to live without ambition means tremendous energy – not to do more mischief.

So death and life always march together. Then there is that sense of absolute freedom from the little travail of myself. And that is necessary to understand that which is timeless, if there is such a thing as eternity. See all this as a movement of life, dying and living. Therefore in that sense you will never kill another, never deliberately hurt another.
