You know how to be discreet, what to take , what to not take.It is very easy to criticize others. It is very easy to say the others are wrong, but it should be the easiest to see what is wrong with you because you can not correct others, you can only correct yourself. It is simple as that.
Like a daughter is married to another man- now supposing there is any problem between the two. It is better to tell your daughter than to tell the other man because she is your own. In the same way, it is better to correct yourself than to correct others. It is the easiest thing to correct yourself if you could look at your ego which is stopping it. And who is the gainer? Who is the person who receives th benediction and bliss of Sahaja Yoga?
So the old habits that are within us, which give us obstinacy, must be seen with great discretion. And now, with all this training in Sahaja Yopga, you should be able
see even rationality the discretion part of it. I have seen people who go by the same road all the time are extremely discreet. They know how to turn, which turn to miss and which turn to take and how to reach. That is the sign of your maturity. So you have to be discreet.
Another thing is that you have your vibrations there to teach you discretion. But sometime you may be missing that.
So with rationality, if you discriminate and try to find out. “What is wrong? Where am I going wrong?” You will very easily understand that” This part I’m doing wrong and better check myself and no body else. ” Because you are driving your own car, you can only control your brakes and not the brakes of another person. It is such a funny situation that people are driving everybody else’s car. But not their own.
So with discretion , you will know how to correct yourself, even rationally.
Now your rationality is absolutely logical. Before this rationality was illogical, but now with integration, your rationality becomes logical and you can see. “No, this is wrong, this cannot be .” You know about everything now, practically everything.
I do not think there is anything that requires information for you people. But you just try to think about something and you will get the answer. That is all in your brains. It is opened out. The only thing that I have said is develop your discretion. If you are indiscreet, then you must develop it. You must grow up to it. You must mature.
So then we go from discretion to understand that when we go into discrimination, discriminate and find out things, what we have to do is to find out our own fault, correct it discretely. And then about others, what are we to do? If you people are of that level that you catch from even a butterfly flying around and a little leaf falling from the tree. I mean if you were of that level, then I would never have put you into these tests. But you are not. You are capable of much bigger tests than these.
