…… So the difference between a person who is a realized and a not realized is this that the attention which was giving myth as reality to you is gone now, is gone higher. It can see that it is myth. Attention can clearly see that it is myth. And you can see that yourself and you can remove yourself from that.
That … of course I have to give you a push no doubt, and I am working hard on that to give you a push, but you should also know that mythical things must be dropped out, otherwise you will not grow. All mythical things must be dropped out. And the best way to do it is to be in thoughtless awareness, because as soon as you transcend these three gunas you become thoughtlessly aware. You have to cross Agnya. Once you cross Agnya, these three gunas, absolutely you go into a state where you are gunatit, you are beyond gunas. So you do not deliberately do anything, but it just works out.…………..
So first thing is needed is to steady down yourself and tell yourself that “Now all these mythical things I am not going to allow to come to my attention.” All these things are nothing but myths, but you are giving too much importance to myths. You are taking them bit so seriously.……….
So now for you, because you are enlightened now, is to understand that our attention has to move higher and higher, at a higher space. Now actually what has happened in Realization*, your Kundalini has risen and has come up. Just like you can say a small, thin hair – one hair, say. And that has broken your Sahasrara. And now the grace is flowing into you. But it’s a very small movement that has taken place – of course which is a very difficult movement no doubt, but it has taken place. Now you have not expanded like this. Your chakras are only pierced in the center, but the rest of the attention is still intact. Actually it is so intact, that you don’t even feel that it is pierced. Now you have to expand that. Open it out so that more strands of Kundalini can rise and your attention, which is in these centers, expands. By expansion it drives out all that is mythical on the sides. On every center we have our attention, which is being enlightened in the center through this light passing through. But light is too small for the darkness that you have collected………..
