Live according to your own light

If you are putting your life together according to the instructions in some book, you will be in trouble.
Live according to your own small light. Enough light has been given to you. You have brought it with yourself.
You need not live according to Buddha, according to Mahavira, according to Krishna.
They never lived according to anybody else,

Remember.

I have heard about a Zen Master, Bokoju – he was celebrating his Master’s birthday – somebody asked Bokoju, ”But you DON’T follow him – why are you celebrating his birthday? You are just the opposite of the Master, why are you paying your respects?”

And Bokoju said, ”My Master never followed his Master and I am doing the same. And my Master has told me not to follow him – that is his message to me. And it is by NOT following him that great light has happened in me. Hence the respect and gratitude.”

Always remember that each one has to live according to his own light. The Master has not to be imitated literally; he has to be understood.

And people are in such a hurry to imitate. Why do people want to imitate? – because it is easier. It needs no intelligence to imitate. Any idiot can imitate. In fact, only idiots imitate. An intelligent person learns, understands, and follows his own light that comes out of his understanding.
