Love someone and you
will feel helpless; hate someone and you can do something. Love
someone and you are absolutely helpless - because what can you do?
Whatsoever you can do seems insignificant, meaningless; it is never
enough. Nothing can be done. And when one feels that nothing can be
done, one feels that one is helpless. When one wants to do
everything and feels nothing can be done, mind stops. In this
helplessness surrender happens. You are empty. That is why love
becomes a deep meditation.
Really, if you love someone, no other meditation is needed. But because no one loves, one hundred and twelve methods are needed - and even they may not be enough.
Someone was here the other day. He was telling me, "It gives me much hope. I have heard for the first time from you that there are one hundred and twelve methods. It gives me much hope, but somewhere a depression also comes into the mind: only one hundred and twelve methods? And if these one hundred and twelve methods don′t work for me, then is there no one hundred and thirteenth?"
And he is right. He is right! If these one hundred and twelve methods do not work for you, then there is no go. So as he suggests, a depression also follows hope. But really, methods are needed because the basic method is missing. If you can love, no method is needed.
Love itself is the greatest method...
