"If it does not happen to you, then genuinely, there are some defects somewhere, which one has to correct. For which I am willing to work hard. And there are so many who have got it also. So, you are also going to get it and you are also going to feel it. There is no problem about it. It is a gift, it is not an enticement. Do not mislead yourself any longer, you have done quite a lot. Now please, receive the gift and establish it within yourself. Do not identify yourself with all false ideas."

Be Truthful - when seeking genuinely

The other day I told you about the instrument that we have already within ourselves for us to have our own Self-knowledge, which is an actualization, which is an experience, which is that the happening by which we become that, it is the becoming. It is not any brain washing or summoning, but itís a becoming Iím talking about. When we say ę We are the seekers of Truth Ľ, how truthful are we about this seeking? This is one point we should try to understand: Are we really genuinely seeking? Are we genuine about it, or we are doing it because itís nice to say that we are seeking the Truth? If you have to seek something genuine, you have to be truthful yourself.

Vibrations are absolutely genuine

This is one of the greatest hurdles in Sahaja Yoga. Sahaja Yoga is a system by which you jump into the Truth itself, you become the Truth. You donít see the Truth, you donít understand the Truth, but you become the Truth. It is most amazing thing that human beings donít understand what to expect out of Truth. They are seeking Truth but they have no conception about the absolute value of Truth. Truth, we cannot compromise it, it doesnít have two sides: like you have day and night, you have right and wrong. Itís absolute! There is no compromise about it. For example, as the other day I told you that when you get your Realization, you start feeling the cool vibrations flowing from your hand. And these cool vibrations are the indication that the Divine power has started flowing through you. Now, these vibrations that you have are flowing through you like a cool breeze, are absolutely genuine, they are much more genuine than genuineness. Because human beings always have relative ideas of genuineness.

In Sahaja Yoga it is you who has to gain

For example, say, if you take carbon atom: it can be placed in any way, it has got four valences. But it can be placed any way in a molecule. You can change the form of it, but still, if you go to the details of it, the carbon will remain carbon. And a hydrogen will remain hydrogen, in its basic structure. So, the Truth that is the basic thing, cannot change. You cannot mould it, you cannot befool it, you cannot act it. When these vibrations are flowing from you, if there are no vibrations then you are not there. Nobody can say that you are there, that you are a realized soul because you are carrying a big horn on your head. You may carry any signs and signatures saying that you are a great person, you have so many following and there are so many people running mad after you. But still you are not a realized soul and you are not. Even if you are crucified and you are a realized soul you can feel that this one, the one whom we have crucified, is the one who is emitting vibrations. But if the seeker is not truthful or is conditioned and heís trying to cheat himself all the time, he is not going to gain anything. In Sahaja Yoga you have to gain. Nobody else has to gain, it is you who has to gain. So, you have to be genuine about it. You cannot purchase it with money. You cannot hide it by any false means. You cannot kill it. It is eternal.

Read within yourself Ė to attain Self-knowledge

So, we have to be extremely truthful to ourselves, we have not to cheat ourselves when we are facing God, when we are facing Truth. There are some people in this world who destroy others and there are some who destroy themselves. In the same way, there are some people in this world who cheat others and there are some who cheat themselves. There are so many things in this world which helps you to do that - itís to cheat yourself. So, be on the alert! We have to realize that we are here to face the Truth. And God has created us in such a way that He has placed everything so beautifully within us for this thing to happen, for us to get our Self-knowledge. You are not to go in wilderness to find it out! You are not to read anything about it! Which in your city did Christ go to, or Krishna go to? What education did Rama have as far as university education is concerned? You have to read within yourself - your own book is within yourself Ė and to see for yourself, in a very humble manner to understand ĎWhere am I?í
