You cannot become a saint, because if you want to become a saint you will have to deny your devil; you will have to cut yourself into two parts. You will have to force your devil somewhere into your belly, and the devil will remain there and will go on sabotaging your sainthood….When you accept both the good and the bad and you don’t choose, the bad and good cancel each other; the positive and negative cancel each other. Suddenly there is silence; there is neither good nor bad; there is only Existence, with no judgement…..
