……..As you cannot force Sahaja Yoga or anyone you cannot force yourself upon us. And we don’t want dishonest hypocritical people. You have to become the genuine, the pure, otherwise how will you emit these vibrations. You are the one who has to do this new revolution. For any other revolution people had to sacrifice, had to die, there were massacres but in Sahaja Yoga* you are blessed all the time, blessed.
And you have to just count your blessings one by one. You are all the time blessed all the time you are given support and help and security. Every moment you have the sensation of tremendous joy and enormous confidence in your righteousness and virtues. But as we are coming from the crowds suddenly we cannot accept, to be on a hill-top watching the crowds. Because in modern times we live in Hell. Like our one foot is in the mouth of a crocodile and here you are pulled into a boat but if you want to be on the crocodile, or in the crocodile’s mouth, nobody can help you. If you want to put back your foot into it what can anybody do? If you like that way, nobody can force you. But once you start enjoying yourself, enjoying the bliss of Divine then seldom you want to go back to the crocodile.
The conditioning in human beings sometimes can be very strong. Specially the conditioning of the ego is horrible. Like to say, “I don’t like this. I like this”. or, “I hate this, I love this.” When you say that ‘I’ where is this ‘I?’ You have not known yourself so far. When you become yourself, you’ll never say like that. because you do not react in that manner. You just watch and see, absorb whatever is good and discard whatever is bad. But this discretion has to be established…..
