"You yourself are Shaastra. If you study your consciousness, your mind, that is what is in the Shaastra."

Aug 4 2011

We succumb to the illusion that we are yogi, bhogi (epicurean). No one can equal me, I did this, I did that! People who make such declarations are confining themselves to a limited identity.

Any type of identification limits your potential. You are so vast ,and you limit yourself, I did this, I did that. What you did? It all happened through you. Whenever someone has achieved something great ,did something good, they always say it happened, I don't know how it happened.

You want to ask a question, you don't listen to the answer. Because that wanting to do something is stopping you from hearing, have you noticed that? That person has a question in his mind but somebody else has asked some other question and answer is being said but you are not taking it. You are sitting with your question. Similarly you are sitting, oh I want to sing this song and nothing else is going in. it is like that? Yes. That's why you have to be a yogi, you have to drop all the sankalpas. Your sankalpa is: you want to sing now, drop it! These are small exercises on how you can drop things.

When these small sankalpas are there in the mind, then we cannot see anything, we cannot hear anything. Nature wants to give you even bigger things but we hold on to our small desires and keep worrying. That's why is it said drop all this, you should know how to drop all your sankalpas and also how to manifest them. And the secret here is the one who knows how drop his sankalpas he will be the one who will manifest his sankalpa. This is the biggest secret. This is what the Gurus taught, to become an expert is dropping your sankalpas. I want this, I want to do this, drop it! I don't want this, I want that,drop it. When you learn how to drop it you learn how to receive everything. Become hollow and empty.

Now there will be no more questions. In one stroke all the questions have disappeared. Now how will you ask question when I have said that the one asking a question is foolish,so no one will ask a question.
