………And to understand the complete totality of man you have to open your mind, listen to Me like a scientist would listen or understand a hypothesis, and later on if you are realized – if you are; that is a very big “if” with some people, with some people it is not – you all can testify, you can find out, but as a scientist you must have an open mind. If you are a fanatic, even if you are science-obsessed person, you cannot understand.
Science does not know anything of love; it does not know anything of religion. It does not know anything of incarnations. But it can be proved today that there exists a force which is the synthesis of all the forces that are working. And there exists the all-pervading power of Divine love. But for that, you have to be a subtler personality. With this gross human attention, you cannot realize it. You have to be a subtler being and to be that subtle being you are already blessed with a mechanism that works out this happening spontaneously. It is Sahaja, spontaneous, effortless. Somebody has to trigger it………
……Now you are listening to Me, paying attention to Me, your Chitta is towards Me. This attention is the conscious mind. You know that you are conscious of what I’m speaking. Moment to moment you are listening to Me. This present moment now, at this moment, this moment as it is, it’s slipping, is becoming the past and the future is coming in you. Every moment is disappearing and a new moment is coming. You cannot stop the present; you cannot stop your attention at present. Now, to be at this moment, you cannot be, that’s the difficulty. You either think of the past or of the future, but you cannot think of the present, of this moment. So, we have our past and our future, in a simple work.
The past, they call it as subconscious mind. Subconscious mind, they call it as psyche sometimes. I don’t know what do they mean by psyche, they are so confused, but we have a subconscious strata, in which we store all that we collect, experiences, conditionings, everything. This work is done by the left-hand side channel, known as Ida Nadi, which is worked by the power of Mahakali. Now this word should not shock all the English knowing scientists. This Mahakali power works with storing of all the experiences, all the thoughts that are coming to you from the present into the past, is done by Mahakali power.
Thinking of the future, planning of the future, organizing the future is done by the right-hand side power of Mahasaraswati which acts through the Pingala channel. In the gross form they are expressed left and right sympathetic nervous systems. But for a doctor, both the systems act simultaneously. They are so interconnected that it is very difficult for them to verify two different functions which are allotted to them because the ways and methods are so gross.
The left side attends to our emotional being, the lower left side to our physical. We can say psychosomatic side. The right side – the lower to our physical being and the upper right side to our thinking. The center channel of Sushumna is a completely independent system which works out our sustenance.
In the beginning, when a person wants to drink, he wants, all the parasympathetic activities are performed through the subtle action of this channel known as Sushumna and the power that acts is known as Mahalakshmi. This power evolves us, it gives us Dharma, is a sustenance. ……….
