Do not restrict your emotions

At the core, neither is man a friend nor an enemy. Everybody is love and divinity incarnate.

Relationships, when laced with Karma, create friends or enemies. Krishna was the true form of love that was readily available to both the Kauravas as well as the Pandavas.

There is no end for thoughts as each new thought only gives rise to a reaction. Man should go beyond thought through silence.

Thoughts trap man. But a few thoughts unavailable to articulation as well as imagination preoccupy themselves with the idea of God.

Such contemplation can never be replaced by thoughts arising out of Karma because the realization of truth cannot be expressed in mere words.

Man’s power to think leads to self-enquiry, which leaves the Yogi with the power to decipher the thoughts of others.

Such a man does not cross swords with anybody but is guided by his inner voice. The pursuit of truth is nothing but lending a patient ear to diverse thoughts but ultimately following the inner voice.

This is also known as soul searching. Arjuna never had any misgivings or doubts about anybody except Lord Krishna. Likewise, ignorant people never doubt anybody except the Gurus and the God.

Also, such ignorant people prefer the company of their ilk. But the company turns slowly repulsive and they turn towards the Guru. But in the presence of the Guru, they are also in the presence of Truth, which might not suit them.

But God and Guru inspire fear in ignorant people. Such people are wedged in Karma and lead different lives from within and outside.

They also cannot enjoy freedom and happiness but when they come in the presence of the Guru, their true form begins to unravel itself and their evil doubts come out in the open.

But ignorant people continue to be oblivious to the fact that this is the process of Sahaja Dhyana.

The idiosyncrasies, unfounded defenses, illogical arguments and ironies evident in such a person become palpable once his false pride is prodded and slowly gives way.

He stops defending his stand and his true self starts gesticulating itself. Many times when you come to me, you cry inconsolably. But suddenly, you become conscious of yourself and stop weeping.

There is no need to restrict you as emotions, which are withheld, transform into Karma. Since there is no place for pride in the presence of Guru, people stop coming for the fear of being exposed.

But man himself nurtures such stands. Such a phase arises as most people deceive themselves and are never true to their self. Completeness and purification can be achieved only when man goes beyond ritualism and physical acts and expunges evil thoughts hidden in his mind.

But the life of a Yogi has little to conceal. His mind is free of machinations and so he is free of any internal conflict.
