It will become! Become a sannyasin \u2013 that will help you to come close to me, because to come close something has to change inside you. Something that is a kind of no has to become yes; only then can you come to me. Physically you can be close; that won\u2019t help. A different kind of participation is needed, and that is the whole purpose of sannyas, so that you are in an attitude of yes. That is the greatest secret there is \u2013 to say yes. Then things start immediately opening and there is contact.
Life ordinarily prepares us to only say no. Life goes on corrupting our minds and creating doubts. Because of those doubts and because of those no\u2019s and the negatives, one becomes enclosed, one lives in a kind of imprisonment, a China Wall surrounds one. That wall is invisible, transparent, so you don\u2019t know that it is there, but it is always there. Once you say yes it starts disappearing.
To say yes is to be religious. Yes is the most sacred word. One Christian saint, a really signi\ufb01cant man, Saint Francis of Sales, only had six words in his prayer, \u2019Yes, Father, yes, and always yes.\u2019 That was his whole prayer and I have never come across a better prayer. Nothing more can be added to it: \u2019Yes, Father, yes, and always yes.\u2019 But my feeling is that this is a kind of repetition. One yes will do: why say\u2019Yes, Father, yes, and always yes\u2019? Yes means everything. It is always, it is forever. One single yes is enough. It should be intense, it should be total.
I have heard about a young girl who received a telegram from her boyfriend, saying would she be willing to marry him. The friend wanted an immediate telegraphic reply. The girl was a village girl, was very shy and was thinking how to formulate the message so it was neither on the negative side too much nor on the positive side too much, so it did not discourage him and did not show too much
enthusiasm on her side either. She tried hard but she could not \ufb01nd how to do it. Then she went to the telegraph of\ufb01ce and just wrote \u2019yes\u2019. But the clerk at the window said, \u2019For the same amount of money you can write ten words,\u2019 so she wrote \u2019Yes, yes, yes\u2019 nine times. The clerk counted and said, \u2019But you can write it ten times...\u2019, and the girl said, \u2019Won\u2019t it look too much?\u2019
One yes is already too much. And if you understand me, and some day you will understand me, if you can say yes without even using the word \u2019yes\u2019 then it is the uttermost in prayer. One word is more than enough; no word is the ultimate. Just a yes attitude, a climate of yes... not a verbalisation but a heart full of yes. Not something in the head but in the very bones and the marrow.
When you can say a total yes, the being starts becoming a \ufb02ame. The being immediately \ufb02ashes into a \ufb02ame. It is exactly as if you bring a small \ufb02ame into oxygen and it \ufb02ares up. The moment you say yes your being \ufb02ares up and becomes a great \ufb02ame.
Sannyas is nothing but a sacred yes. That is the meaning of Jesus\u2019 saying that faith can move mountains. The word faith is ugly. I say that yes can move mountains, although yes never wants to move mountains. It is always no that wants to move mountains, it is always doubt that wants to move mountains. Faith can move mountains but does not want to. Doubt cannot but wants to. If I was to write the Bible again, I would say yes was in the beginning and yes was with God, and yes was God. So if you really want to come \u2013 and I know you want to come close to me \u2013 become a sannyasin! Come close!
Prem means love, amrita means deathless, immortal. And love is the only thing that knows no death; everything else dies. Love is the only reality that never dies. It is the eternal in existence, it is the very stuff that existence is made of. Everything is on the surface, it is at the core. The surface changes; the core remains the same. One \ufb02ower comes, another \ufb02ower comes, and another. Beauty continues, \ufb02owering remains eternal. One lover, another lover and millions of lovers, but they all \ufb02oat in the same river of love. Lovers are born and die. Love goes on.

Good! You do a few things....
One is: whenever you are feeling that the energy is moving into bliss, dance. Stand and start moving and dancing. Whenever, but it has to be started when you are feeling that it is moving into bliss, mm? So \ufb01rst let your dance be associated with blissfulness: for a few days, for two weeks simply dance only when it is blissful. After two weeks start dancing when it is painful. So the dance will become the bridge and will help you in both ways. It will help you to release your energy in bliss and it will help you to release your pain, your pressure. But start \ufb01rst with the blissful quality. First let dance become associated with it, so when it is a pressure and you start dancing, immediately you will change the trend of it, the direction of it.
