……The time has come for the whole world to know their Spirit. This is the time prophesized even by William Blake when He describes England is the Jerusalem. The time has come for you to know your Spirit. That has to happen. It is not a thing by which I tell you, you stand on your heads or hold your nose or start taking some names like one track mind going on chanting some names like some mad caps. It is not that but something that must happen within yourself and that must transform.
Of course, one must understand if it is a living process, you cannot pay for it. How can you pay for a seed to sprout? The seed doesn’t understand the living process, doesn’t understand money. It’s the dead work of human beings. How can you organize it also, you cannot, it’s spontaneous, there is no technique, it’s all built-in, the technique is built in the little seed that you see, the whole technique of its growth is all built-in. The technique is built-in and all its flaps, how it is going to be, what tree it is going to be, how the tree is going to grow into what height, what thickness, everything is inside that seed. In the same way it is a spontaneous thing, which has to happen within you and if it is so we have to find.
That’s how the search started, people went to India, went all over the places to find out they thought we cannot find the solution to lead us to God. It has to be that way because if you grow too much outside you have to find out your roots because you develop that fear, you develop that fear that you may not be able to sustain this out growth unless and until you find out the depth or the source on which this is to be sustained…
