Are U A Rebel or revolutionary?

04 April, 2006

Aren’t these wonderful words worth reading hundred times…I keep on reading them over and over,,,,and every time I discover new meaning,,,the shadow of wisdom behind each letter…

A rebel is one who doesn’t rebel against the society, who understands the whole game of it and simply slips out of it. It becomes irreverent to him. He is not against it. And that is the beauty of rebellion: it is freedom. The revolutionary is not free. He is constantly fighting with something-how can he be free? He is constantly reacting against something-how can there be freedom in reaction?

Freedom means understanding. One has understood the game, and seeing that this is the way the soul is prevented from growing, the way one is not allowed to be oneself, one simply gets out of it without scar on the soul. One forgives and forgets and remains without any clinging to the society in the name of love or in the name of hate.
Society has simply disappeared for the rebel. He may live in the world or he may go out of the world, but he belongs to it no more; he is an outsider
