give the climate in which he can be, in which he can reveal himself. That's the meaning of trust.

So let your sannyas be a great leap into trust, a jump and from this moment think of yourself as a temple.

Life is a temple, and god is enshrined in the temple.

We are carrying infinite potentiality -- and completely unaware... living like beggars when we can live like emperors. Nobody is hindering us except our own fallacious ideas and old habits; habits have a great pull.

To be depressed is a habit,, to be angry is a habit, to be sad is a habit -- and naturally they are very wrong habits. To be happy, again is another habit. It is the same energy that becomes unhappiness or happiness; you just have to change your habit, your outlook, your attitude, and immediately energy starts flowing into a new channel. So from this moment, become happy, become loving, become grateful, become celebrating.

Drop the past, and I don't say drop it slowly, by and by -- no, because then you will never be able to drop it. If you say, 'I will drop it tomorrow: a little bit I will drop today, then a little bit tomorrow, then a little bit the day after tomorrow,' meanwhile you will be carrying it and it will become more and more strengthened, so simply drop it!

And it can be dropped just like that: very simply, as one changes clothes, changes a dress. The change in the dress to orange is symbolic: as easily as you change your dresses you start wearing the orange. The inner dress, the inner climate of your thoughts, the inner climate of your mind will be changed in exactly the same way. And as simply as I change your name you can change your total being. It is really simple!

So from this moment start thinking of yourself as a new peson who has no habits of the old. They will chase you, they will try, they will hover around you, but simply say 'good-bye' and start living in a new way.

And you will see: if you start, it happens. You will be surprised that it was so simple, that you didn't start it earlier.

[The new sannyasin says he is a farmer.]

That's very good... that's lovely, mm? anything that one can do in cooperation
