A real seeker always feels grateful, to everybody, whosoever has helped him in any possible way. He feels grateful to his parents, he feels grateful to all his teachers; he feels grateful even to people who have deceived him, who were pseudo, who were not real teachers even, who were cheaters. But he feels grateful even to them, because they all have helped you — positively, negatively, in some way or other.
If you are here, you are here because of many many people, good and bad both. And the day you become reborn, remember it, that you owe something to everybody, whosoever has helped you in any way. The husband who has divorced you, the wife who has left you and gone with somebody else, the parents who abandoned you, who have forgotten all about you, the many pseudo teachers who roam around the world exploiting people, they all have helped in certain ways.
When you will become enlightened you will know how they all have helped. If the husband has not divorced you you may not have been here at all — you may be still hanging with the fool! You owe much gratefulness to him. The wife who left you and went with somebody else, don’t carry any grudge against her; she has done a great service to you, otherwise you may not have been here. She may be still nagging you!
Everything that has happened has been good. Once you attain to the ultimate rest it makes everything golden. Even nights, dark nights become sources of the beautiful mornings, beautiful dawns.
