“If you feel much resistance against meditation it simply shows that deep down you are alert that something is going to happen which will change your whole life. You are afraid of being reborn. You have invested too much in your old habits, in the old personality, in the old identity.
“Meditation is nothing but trying to clean your being, trying to become fresh and young, trying to become more alive and more alert.
“If you are afraid of meditation it means you are afraid of life, you are afraid of awareness, and the resistance comes because you know that if you move into meditation, something is bound to happen.
“If you are not resisting at all it may be because you don’t take meditation very seriously, you don’t take meditation very sincerely. Then you can play around – what is there to be afraid of?”
