…..If you see today’s atmosphere, you’ll find there’s such a confusion. People do not know who is right, who is wrong. To some people it is great to be a fanatic; they think they are doing a great honor to themselves because they are fanatics. They are so confused that they do not know how far to go in obeying the religious warnings and religious, we can say, the saints. And how far not to go they do not know. It is such a confusion. In this confusion you the seekers are [there]. You are seekers of truth of ages. If you are not, Sahaja Yoga is not going to help you much. If you have come here just to rationalize something, this is not a place where you can discuss, argue it out or anything. It has to work in you. It has to give you that blessing. If it cannot bestow that blessing in you, then Sahaja Yoga is useless, useless for you.
So this is the central point where you recognize within yourself by becoming something else, that there is God. Not only that He is there, but His power is all-pervading, that He organizes, cooperates the whole universe, and that He is the all-powerful, all-knowing. All these things you feel within yourself. You recognize Him not through your rationality but through your feeling. Like if I put My finger to this [plate/plane] it will be burnt. This is My feeling. It’s My subjective knowledge. Somebody tells Me it is hot, I’ll say, “What’s wrong? Let Me put My hand on it.” But the feeling is such an absolute thing that when you will touch it, even a child can say that, “It is hot.”
So that absolute feeling within us which makes us feel through our organs, sensory organs, the hot and cold by which we hear and we see clearly, that subjective knowledge, whatever language you speak, whatever religion you follow, whether you are an atheist, or egoistical, or whatever [it is], that feeling when it gets enlightened, then you start feeling God, God Almighty. Then you can also rationalize it in the sense that when I burnt My finger I’ll say, “Yes, what they said it’s correct. It burns your finger. It’s a fact.”….
