Why are you so afraid of being in a wrong situation?

Even the fear of going in a wrong direction is an ego trip. Why are you so afraid of being in a wrong situation? — because the wrong situation is very ego shattering and the right situation is very ego enhancing.

In fact to think of the future is to think in terms of the ego. So remain with the moment if it is needed for your growth — that you should go in a wrong direction — it will happen. And you cannot avoid it, because avoiding it will be avoiding your own growth.

You cannot avoid anything.

So whatsoever is available, enjoy it to your total capacity; respond to it totally. Let this moment give all that it can give to you. And the next moment is going to be born out of this moment.

If this moment has been rightly lived, from where will the next moment come? It will grow out of this moment. It is going to take on the same quality. It is going to be a continuity with this moment.

The next moment is not coming out of the blue.

To live rightly means to live totally. It is not being virtuous; it is just being whole.

The right is not against wrong or against sin. The right is only against being partial. Don’t be partial, don’t be fragmentary.

And the right has nothing to do with any goal, any perfectionist’s ideal. The right has something to do with the feel of this moment If you feel good, it is right. Easy is right. Happiness is right.

So celebrate this moment, enjoy this moment, delight in this moment — and the tomorrow will take care of itself. Think not of the morrow.

The moment you start thinking that you may go wrong, that you have to go right, the ego has entered. It is the ego that is worried about its decoration — morality, good, virtue, respectability… some shoulds.

So just remain with the moment, as much as possible and everything will go right If this moment is right, everything is going to be right
