    The New Alchemy: To Turn You On



    The New Alchemy: To Turn You On



    CHAPTER 1

    Surrendering to What Is
    6 April 1973 pm in Bikaner Palace Hotel


    Three sutras that are basic for life transformation, that are ultimate in a way. The first: Be
    nonambitious.
    KILL OUT AMBITION TOTALLY.
    UNLESS AMBITION IS KILLED, you will remain in misery. Ambition is the source of all miseries.
    What is ambition? ’A’ wants to be ’B’, the poor wants to be rich, the ugly wants to be beautiful.
    Everyone longs to be someone else, something other than what he is. No one is content with
    himself. That’s what ambition is.

    Whatsoever you are, you are not content with it. This is ambition. Then you are bound to be in
    misery, because you cannot be anything else. You can only be yourself; nothing else is possible. All
    else is just futile, harmful, dangerous. You can waste your whole life, your whole existence.

    Whatsoever you are, you are. Accept it; don’t desire it to be otherwise. This is what nonambition
    means. Nonambitiousness is basic to all spiritual transformation, because once you accept yourself,
    many things start happening. But the first thing.... If you accept yourself totally, the first thing that
    happens to you is a nontense life. There is no tension. You don’t want to be anything else; there
    is nowhere else to go. Then you can be here and now. There is no comparison. You yourself are
    unique. You no longer think in terms of others.

    Then there is no future. Ambition needs future, it needs space to grow. It cannot grow here and
    now; there is no space. This moment is so small, so atomic. Ambition needs the future; and the
    greater the ambition, the greater the future that is needed.

    If your ambition is so great that it cannot be fulfilled in this life, then you will create an afterlife. You
    will create heaven, you will create moksha, you will create the concept of rebirth. I am not saying that
    there is no rebirth. I am saying that you believe in rebirth not because it is there but because your
    ambitions are so great that they cannot be fulfilled in one lifetime. Your belief in rebirth, reincarnation,
    is not because it is a fact. It is because of ambition and desire. Reincarnation may be a fact, but for
    you it is just a fiction. For you it is just a matter of the future, of more space to move in.
    Remember, you cannot be ambitious in the present moment. It is impossible. There is no space.
    The present moment is so atomic, so small, that you cannot move in it. You can be in it, but you
    cannot desire in it. It is long enough to be, but it is not long enough for desiring. To desire you need
    future, time. Really, time exists because of desire. For the trees here, there is no time. For the birds
    singing here, there is no time. For the stars and for the sun and for the earth, there is no time. Time
    exists because of human desire. If humanity was not on this earth, there would be no time; there
    would be no past and no future.

    Your desire creates the future. Your memory creates the past. They are both parts of your mind.
    Don’t desire, and the future disappears. And when there is no future, how can you be tense? How?
    There is no possibility of being tense if there is no future And if there is no past – if you know that
    it is simply memory, the dust collected on the way – how can there be any anxiety? With the past,
    anxiety enters. And with the future – plans, imaginations, projections – tension exists. When the
    past drops and the future is not open, you are here, now. No anxiety, no tension, no anguish.

    Nonambition means to accept yourself as you are. But that doesn’t mean that there is no possibility
    of growth. On the contrary, when you accept yourself as you are the transformation sets in. You
    start growing, but the dimension differs. Then the dimension is not in the future but in the eternal
