Zorba the Buddha – It is my whole philosia; it is my whole vision in which the lowest meet with highest, in which materialism and spiritualism will not be two separate and antagonistic things.
Zorba the Greek says to his boss, “Boss, everything is right in you , only one thing is missing — a little bit of madness!”
And I agree with Zorba. Sannyas gives you a little bit of madness, but that little bit of madness brings rainbows to your life…
Sannyas is a rebellion against both the past and future. Man has either lived in the past or in the future, but never in the present. And the present is the only reality there is; nothing else exists. Existence knows only one time, that is now, and one space, that is here. But mind either lives in the past, which is no more, or in the future, which is not yet. Mind exists in the non-existential, hence mind never comes across reality; it cannot be its very functioning.
