Guruji, how to connect to the source?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Don’t see the source as something far away and try to connect to the source. Just relax! Whenever you relax you are the Source. In the spiritual plane only relaxation, doing nothing connects you to the Source.
Mind and body works on completely different laws. Body works on effort. To build muscles you will need to do effort. But to improve your memory the more effort you put, you will drain your memory power. For memory power what do you have to do? Relax more, rest more.
So the mind works on relaxation and effortlessness and the body works on effort. And this is the beauty, this is the combination.
Mind is infinite, body is finite and life is a combination of finite and infinite.
