No postponement

Papaji says: "Let your intention be of a different order then the intention to practise or to postpone. Then wipe everything that comes into the mind, including your idea about freedom or enlightenment, or even what you are searching for. Not even the concept of searching may arize in the mind. This freedom from your ideas about yourself, is what I am talking about!
Nobody else can give you anything. This is completely your own affair. And you have to do it yourself. Even if you postone, even if you postpone for a million years - at the end of millions of years you are going to get it.
When you know, you realize there has been no sleep, no ignorance, no darkness. When there is light, where is the darkness? When there is knowledge, where is the ignorance? When there is a rope, where is the snake? When there is no misunderstanding, where is the mirage? All creations of the mind. And you have created it all yourself, due to the imagination.
What is that imagination? "I am not that. I am not absolute freedom. I am not absolute existence." You are identifying yourself with something that is not abiding, that is not changeless, that is not eternal. That is the postponement.
This postponement is like a grinding mill; day and night, it is grinding. The grinding mill is working, and all the beings are being crushed like grains. The mill is working, stones are moving, beings are crushed.
A few here and there - one or two - may be safe near the center pivot, where nothing can crush them. Anything which is away from the center, the Self, the absolute existence, must be crushed."

So I say why are we still postponing? Call off the search!
All of this is just a concept, eventually you have to leave concepts alone and abide as your true center which is your own Self [and the Self of every other Being].
