So you have to have your peace within yourself and this you achieve through thoughtless awareness. Then another thing happens to you that you become the witness, the witness of the whole drama. Say, if you are in the water and there are waves, you’re afraid of it. But supposing you get into the boat, then you watch these very carefully you can watch them. Also, you can enjoy them. But supposing you know how to swim, then you can jump and save many people.
So like this, into two stages, you rise. The first one, when you rise into the boat when you are thoughtlessly aware and the second stage, which we call is a doubtless awareness, which is called as Sanskrit language it is called as Nirvikalpa samadhi the first one as Nirvichar samadhi and the second one as Nirvikalpa samadhi where you have no doubts about yourself. You know that. You know all your inner knowledge. You know about your inner being and you know about the inner beings of others.
This knowledge we have to know and it takes hardly any time for you to know, hardly I would say, even one month is sufficient. But what I’ve seen that people have to be deep to go into it. Normally, once they get realization, they feel extremely relaxed, peaceful, then finished. But it’s like a seed being sprouted. It has to grow into a tree. They get lost first some disease they have is cured, then they come out with another disease second year I come back. So one has to be determined about it in the beginning. Then you cannot leave it because you enjoy it so much. You know that you are now in the Kingdom of God..
