AlochanaamR^itaMShakti Lacking in India
I believe that the main cause
of India's weakness is not
nor poverty, nor a lack of spirituality or Dharma, but a
thought-power, the spread of ignorance in the motherland of Knowledge.
EverywhereI see an inability or unwillingness to think
- incapacity of
thought or "thought-phobia"... It is the one who can fathom and learn
the truth of the world by thinking more, searching more, labouring
more, who will gain more Shakti.... Look at Europe.
We, however, are not worshippers of Shakti; we are worshippers of the
easy way... Our civilization has become ossified, our Dharma a bigotry
of externals, our spirituality a faint glimmer of light or a momentary
wave of intoxication. So long as this state of things lasts, any
permanent resurgence of India is impossible.
We have abandoned the Sadhana of
Shakti and so the Shakti has abandoned
us. We practise the yoga of love, but where there is no Knowledge or
Shakti, love does not stay, narrowness and littleness come in.

Food for thought
When you said "Yes" to Me, you gave up the right to be like everyone else. That
is why you draw experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which
does not fit who you are. Over and over, again and again, until I make you see
that the past no longer works. I challenge you and tempt you every day with your
past, so that you may see that the past is the ultimate delusion. When you said
"yes" to Me you gave Me your body, your thoughts and your actions. When they
don't suit the new you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable. It will be so EVERY
time and when you realize this fully, then and only then will you completely
give up desire. For this is the only way man will learn. Very seldom does he
learn by quiet reminders. Man's desires and pitfalls are placed there so that I
may do My work. When you give up totally, then the temptations will fade. I will
never give up on you. Every slip will become harder and harder to bear and less
easy to remedy. You will tire of your foolishness because I love you and though
not completely aware of it, you did say "Yes".
