Meditation is for you to go deep down into yourself, to achieve all that your Sahasrara wants to give you, to achieve that height of detachment, of understanding. It’s only through meditation. So, what happens in meditation is that your awareness crosses over Agnya, goes above and it’s now stationed in the Sahasrara, in thoughtless awareness. Then the reality of Sahasrara, the beauty of Sahasrara starts pouring in your own character, in your own temperament. Unless and until you meditate – not meditate just to get well or just to feel that, “I must meditate” – but meditation is very important for all of you, that you develop your Sahasrara in such a manner that you imbibe the beauty of your Sahasrara.
If you don’t use your Sahasrara in this way, after some time you’ll find that Sahasrara will close down, you’ll have no vibrations and you’ll have no understanding of yourself. So, very very important thing is to meditate….. Meditation is the only way you can enrich yourself with the beauty of reality. There’s no other way, I cannot find any other way but meditation by which you rise into the realm of Divinity….. Whenever it is possible, if you can go into meditative mood, you are in contact with this Divine Power. Then whatever is good for you, whatever good for your society, for your country, all is done by this Divine Power. You don’t have to overpower the Divine Power. You don’t have to order, you don’t have to ask; just if you meditate, you are one with this All-pervading Power which is another great blessings to us.
Unless and until your Sahasrara is opened, all the blessings of the Divine Power cannot come to you, it cannot. Maybe you might get some money, you might get some jobs, you might get this and that, but your own development is only possible when you meditate and your Sahasrara is completely open and open to Truth. Now, the Truth is that this Divine Power is compassion, is love. This is the Truth. They say God is Love, God is Truth. So the equation has to be made that Truth is Love and Love is Truth. But it’s not a truth that as you have for your own children, you have for your family; attached.
Attached love is not the Truth…. But if you are attached to anything whatsoever, that attachment itself causes problems and doesn’t allow Sahaj to grow…
