Ojai 3rd Public Talk November 5th 1966

“We were saying how very important it is to bring about in the human mind a radical revolution. The crisis - and there are always crises in the world, especially now - it seems to me, is a crisis in consciousness,
a crisis that cannot any more accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions, a particular way of life, whether it is the American way, the European way, or the Asiatic way. And considering what the world is now,
with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, the tremendous advancement in technology, and so on, it seems to me, though man has cultivated the external world and has more or less mastered it, inwardly he is still as he was: a great deal of animal in him;
he is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive, and he has built a society along these lines. The more one observes - and I think almost everyone sees it, unless he is totally blind, deaf and dumb - the more one is aware of the extraordinary contradictions of
human beings, & of the great demands, intellectual as well as a demand at a different level; a demand which is not emotional, not built on enthusiasm, not sentimental, but factual. & to understand the factual, which is neither intellectual nor emotional,
there must be a great deal of passion.

What we are trying to is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are, no the world does not explain it, but to understand it, to go into it, to examine it, give your heart and
your mind and everything that you have to find out a way of living differently.

But that depends on you and not somebody else, because in this there is no teacher, no pupil, there is no leader, there is no guru there is no master no saviour.…
You yourself are the teacher and the pupil, you are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader.

You are everything.

And to understand, is to transform what is.
