WALK THE PATH YOURSELF
People try to capture Divinity in a test tube, but they can’t. Because the very test tube is Divinity itself – so, what is capturing what?
Everything is Divine, everything is pure, and everything is simple. We make it difficult and complex because we are in our Western world and are very technologically orientated.
We want push buttons for everything. On the spiritual path, it’s not possible – there’s no instant pudding or instant coffee. It is a path one has to walk by oneself.
Only by yourself can you find the Divinity within you. No one else can find it for you.
The spiritual master gives you guidelines. A spiritual master gives you a little push. A spiritual master ignites a spark. But you got to fan that spark yourself so that you experience the great big fire – the fire of Divinity. And that fires you up to live a life of joy, of peace and of harmony.
YOUR AWARENESS IS YOU
You are like a computer and this computer – that you are – functions on different levels, different stages of evolution. So, the more highly developed the computer that you are, the more aware you become of your possibilities, that means developing a greater awareness where you just know, and no button pushing is necessary.
The computer within us is built in such a fashion that all parts are known in its fullness, and all parts are known in its separateness.
Like Mozart, he could see the wholeness of the symphony, and at the same time be aware of the various parts of the symphony.
You – the computer – do not need to feed information, you need to extract information. And, you extract this information from the deeper levels of yourself, from the superconscious level of the mind, through the subconscious and then to the conscious level, where you can cognize your value and your worth and become aware of your awareness.
This means that you have to become aware of your awareness, and your awareness is you. That technology that is within you can be so activated that you need nothing outside of yourself.
You don’t possess a soul; you are the soul. You don’t possess a spirit; you are the spirit.
