All perfectionists are neurotic. The very effort to become perfect is obsessive; it creates neurosis, it creates a sort of madness. Then you will never be sane. The only sanity there is, is to accept yourself as you are. Don't condemn and don't judge. Don't make standards to judge and don't make criteria to judge. Suddenly you see that you have started moving, that the river is flowing. And the river reaches to the ocean of its own accord; nobody needs to force it.
The more you try to change yourself, the more you will be in a vicious circle. And then guilt is created; and when you feel guilty you feel condemned, and when you feel condemned, in that condemnation life becomes a hell. Hell does not exist somewhere; it exists in a wrong attitude. Then you live in hell; your whole being is surrounded by a nightmare. Drop that nightmare. Start living and flowing; a deep let-go , acceptance. And wherever you move, don't be worried, because the divine is everywhere. When you create the idea of guilt, for what so ever reason, you create a gap; then you are surrounded by your own darkness. Drop that word guilt, and always remember that words are very potential and powerful. Don't say you feel guilty; never use a wrong word."
If I'm teaching anything here, if it can be called a teaching at all, it is a very simple teaching: to be yourself, and never try to become anything else. If you cannot understand me it's okay, you don't need. Whenever you need, it happens. Let everything happen when it is needed; let everything follow its natural course
Come Follow to You.
