Inner bath is a process done vehemently to shower your mind with innocence and fragrance of your inner being, exploring and expressing your own self without prejudice is the charismatic bath

“Lets take the bath”

First lesson

Everybody is a salesman. If you listen to too many salesmen, you will become mad. Don’t listen to anybody. Just close your eyes and listen to the inner voice. Your whole mechanism is topsy-turvy because when you wanted to be angry you weren’t; when you wanted to hate you didn’t. Now you want to love; suddenly you find that the mechanism doesn’t function.

Then the second thing only if you have done the first thing does the second become possible—never wear a mask. If you are angry, be angry. It is risky, but don’t smile because that is being untrue. You have been taught that when you are angry, smile, but then your smile becomes false, a mask—just an exercise of the lips and nothing else. The heart full of anger, poison, and the lips smiling; you become a false phenomenon.

When you want to be angry, be angry. Nothing is wrong in being angry. If you want to laugh, laugh. Nothing is wrong in laughing loudly. By and by you will see that your whole system is functioning. When it functions, really, it has a hum around it. Just like a car hums when everything is going well—the driver who loves the car knows that now everything is functioning well. There is an organic unity; the mechanism is functioning well.

You can see it—whenever a person’s mechanism is functioning well you can sense the hum around him. He walks, but his step has a dance in it. He talks, but his words carry a subtle poetry in them. He looks at you, and he really looks; it is not just lukewarm, it is really warm. When he touches you, he really touches you; you can feel his energy moving into your body, a current of life being transferred … because his mechanism is functioning well.

I have a suspicion that wherever anger is suppressed too much, people have teeth trouble. Their teeth go wrong because too much energy is there and never released. And anybody who suppresses anger will eat more—angry people will always eat more because the teeth need some exercise. Angry people will smoke more. Angry people will talk more—they can become obsessive talkers because somehow the jaw needs exercise so that the energy is released a little bit. And angry people’s hands will become knotted, ugly. If the energy had been released, they could have become beautiful hands.

If you suppress anything, there is some corresponding part in the body to the emotion. If you don’t want to cry, your eyes will lose their luster because tears are needed; they are a very alive phenomenon. When once in a while you weep and cry—really you go into it, you become it, and tears start flowing from your eyes—your eyes are cleansed, your eyes become fresh again, young and virgin.

And the third thing; authenticity; It always remain in the present because all falseness enters either from the past or from the future.

That which has passed has passed. Don’t bother about it and don’t carry it as a burden; otherwise, it will not allow you to be authentic to the present. And all that has not come has not come yet. Don’t unnecessarily be bothered about the future, otherwise that will come into the present and destroy it. Be true to the present, and then you will be authentic. To be here now is to be authentic.

When you are angry, you don’t show your anger—you are afraid it may destroy your image because people think you are so compassionate, and people say that you are never angry. They appreciate it, and it is so gratifying to the ego. Now, being angry will destroy your beautiful image, so rather than destroying the image, you repress the anger. It is boiling within, but on the surface you remain compassionate, kind, polite, sweet. Now the division is being practiced. People are practicing it through their whole lives; then the division becomes absolutely settled. Even when you are sitting alone and there is nobody, and there is no need to pretend, you go on pretending; it has become second nature. People are not true even in their bathrooms; even when they are utterly alone, they are untrue. Now it is not a question

If you have an ideal, you cannot be true to the moment because the ideal is always there and you have to imitate the ideal. The true man has no ideals.

Whenever you trust somebody, it becomes impossible for him to cheat you, to deceive you. Sitting on the platform in a railway station, you don’t know the person who is sitting by your side—he is a stranger, a complete stranger—and you say to him, “Please watch my luggage. I have to go to purchase a ticket.” And you go. You trust an absolute stranger. But it almost never happens that the stranger deceives you. He could have deceived you if you had not trusted him.

Trust has magic in it. How can he deceive you now that you have trusted him? How can he fall so low? He will never be able to forgive himself if he deceives you.

There is an intrinsic quality in human consciousness to trust and to be trusted. Everybody enjoys being trusted. It is respect from the other person—and when you trust a stranger it is more so. There is no reason to trust him, and still you trust him. You raise the man to such a high pedestal, you value the man so much, and it is almost impossible for him to fall from that height. And if he falls, he will never be able to forgive himself, he will have to carry the weight of guilt his whole life.

A man who trusts himself comes to know the beauty of it—comes to know that the more you trust yourself, the more you bloom; the more you are in a state of let-go and relaxation, the more you are settled and serene, the more you are calm, cool, and quiet. And it is so beautiful that you start trusting more and more people because the more you trust, the more your calmness deepens; your coolness goes deeper and deeper to the very core of your being. And the more you trust, the more you soar high. A man who can trust will sooner or later know the logic of trust. And then one day he is bound to try to trust the unknown.

Start trusting yourself – 

That is the fundamental lesson, the first lesson. Start loving yourself. If you don’t love yourself, who else is going to love you? But remember, if you only love yourself, your love will be very poor.
