…If your attention is entangled outside, you cannot enjoy. So, to be lost into which is samaadhi you see, is the one where your attention is completely drowned into the experience.
That is what we have to achieve. So it’s not only materialism, also emotionalism, all kinds of “isms.” We are attacked by all kind of “isms” since the history of word started in this world I think and now the unholy thing that the “ism” latest is, could be “Sahaja Yoga-ism.” Also could be the greatest word because now there has to be attack on Sahaja Yoga also.
In this one is that, as I told you, I didn’t explain it properly or you didn’t hear Me properly that day, that Sahaja Yoga does not mean lethargy or slowness, not at all, but is a quick and a fast stepping in into the dissolution. Very quick! And once you very quickly dissolve into it, the whole movement of your body is quick but not jerky, is smooth and quick, rhythmic, is musical, neither is awkward nor lethargic, but is musical, is as a rhythm about it, is very gracious. The whole movement of dissolution can happen to you very easily if you don’t allow your attention to be attacked by all these “isms.” There’s no end to it, I mean, if I have to write all of them I think we’ll have to need at least one book to write all the “isms” of the world. There’s no end to it, which we have created. All right.
Then the worst of all is now I think Sahaja Yoga-ism in which first of all is the feeling of lethargy: “It will happen Sahaja, sit down. Mother will do everything for you.” The another is Sahaja Yoga-egoism in which we haven’t got one fellow lying there, in which people get into tantrums, try to show off that they are great Sahaja yogis, they have reached the third stage or the seventh stage or whatever they may. Now it’s good, this example is a very good example, I wish you had taken up…
