ONCE YOU ARE ENLIGHTENED, YOU WILL KNOW PERFECTLY WHAT TO DO.
WHEN YOU KNOW YOU DON’T PLAN. WHEN YOU ARE IGNORANT YOU PLAN
BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW. GET THERE FIRST AND SEE WHAT IT IS.
In Sanskrit this effort is called purushartha. You have to put
purushartha before grace descends. And if you can do that, all of a sudden
the shakti will come, the strength will come up. Fear will be no more. Fear
and insecurity are born out of darkness, out of ignorance, desires,
weaknesses and degradation. As the inspiration rises, as the Light rises, as
you rise upward you begin to be fearless. All of a sudden your heart chakra,
which was otherwise emotional and somewhat sloppy, is very strong, open and
inspired. You achieve strength and fearlessness. And once you have this
freedom from fear, even to some extent, you get more courage and strength to
do higher things. It goes on progressing like that. Then you won’t feel any
resistance to give yourself unto the Lord. And at one certain fortunate
point the Light will shine—which was already there. This Light is within you
and outside you, not a conception. The full wattage is there to shine but
only, like a dimmer, you have to rotate the switch. By the steps revealed
here you are raising the dimmer.
Maintain the focus on the Light in the back of your mind wherever you are. That is your Lord. That is your Truth. That is your Divine Mother. Once She takes over, your job is done. But until that happens, do it yourself. Go on practicing. Don’t go to sleep. This inspiration is a gift, a boon of Mother Saraswati. She inspires you to the Light. And when this Light shines you won’t see that it came all of a sudden. It does not descend or project from anywhere. It was there all along. It is here now, everywhere. You have to open your eyes to see it.
ARE THE METHODS, but the Light shining of Itself is not dependent
upon methods. Methods simply remove the blocks so that you can see it. The
nearest possible statement is: you are Light. You could not exist
without being Light. Not only is Light within you, around you, but
everywhere it is Light. We shudder to imagine this. “I am Light? How
can that be?” It’s hard to believe and we get horrified just to think about
it. Somehow our fear, our shyness and our differentiation hold us back.
Instead of hatred I’ll use the word differentiation. When you are keeping
the focus, remembering Light at the back of your mind or in your heart
through whatever you are doing, that is an objective method. But there is a
subjective way too: you are Light.
