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, but love is difficult -- in a way impossible. Love means putting yourself out from your consciousness, and in the same place, where your ego has been in existence, putting someone else. Replacing yourself by someone else means love -- as if now you are not and only the other is.
