So in the awareness of Sahaja Yogis where you know all about your chakras, you know about vibrations, you know how you relate to others, still all this knowledge is for personal advantages. So, the shadow of the past still lingers on, even when you have this new awareness. Animals can swim automatically, they don’t have to learn. But human beings have to learn to swim. So they had forgotten the techniques which were known to the animals and have taken to the techniques of human beings.
But in Sahaja Yoga you have got your realization in one lifetime. And in this lifetime you have to grow. And in this lifetime you have to achieve the highest. So the time is so very short! And the background is so dark. You are surrounded by people who are pouring out morning till evening destructive concepts. Now, you are the people who have to shoot out much faster than all of them.
But a kind of a lethargy, though you understand that your awareness is very different from them, a kind of a lethargy, which does not accept it the way it should accept Sahaja Yoga. Every one of you must think every day: What have I done for Sahaja Yoga today? But you are all still very busy with your jobs, of making money, of have relations with people who do not matter at all in Sahaja Yoga. We have to make an all out effort to rise to that point, that whatever we know, we believe in, we act on that and become one with it. You can do that with concepts, but not with reality, this is the problem..... So, the first thing is to realize, to be aware, to be in your conscious mind all the time that you are yogis. You are the ones who are very much higher than the rest of the humanity. That the salvation of the whole of the humanity depends on you. The purpose of creation will be served by you. So, first of all you have to be conscious in your consciousness that you are so important, and that’s why you were given realization. ..
