Simple Wisdom

What the heart talks about is simple: enjoy, be grateful, be thankful, be conscious, be real, be in that bliss.

Everyone is born with a very simple instruction manual: be conscious; be real; be thankful; enjoy this life.

I was thinking about the concepts yesterday, and it gave me goosebumps when I came to this thought of living one’s life without concepts. I mean, it would be so childlike. Because that’s what children don’t have!—is concepts. None! None! They just, wherever they go—I mean, and then they start to accrue them. But till they do, they’re just like, “What is this?”

I remember, one of my kids when he was very young; he wanted a knife. We were like, “Man, you know, you’re going to cut yourself.” He wanted a knife. So I said, “Okay, here—here is a Swiss knife.” I just gave it to him.

And he goes in the closet, and goodness, sure enough, trying to open it and close it. he just wanted to have a knife. I mean, he cut himself. Then he knew what I was talking about. And it wasn’t a concept; it was reality.

So, of course, you don’t want them to get hurt and stuff, but they don’t have the concept. I mean, and do we have a concept? And we have a....

I say the word "divine" and it’s not the same light bulb that goes on everywhere. Because I can see that from here. Somewhere it’s green; somewhere it’s blue; somewhere it’s purple; somewhere it’s yellow; somewhere it’s, you know, red; somewhere it’s white. Because we don’t even know when all these concepts crept in.

But listen to your heart; listen to that simple wisdom that is inside of you. And that wisdom doesn’t tell you to go chop down a tree, to paint the house red. That’s not your heart talking; that’s your mind.

What the heart talks about is simple: “Enjoy; be grateful; be thankful; be conscious; be real; be in that bliss”—a very small instruction manual from the heart.
