AlochanaamR^itaMThe Plasticity of Indian ShastraAs the Indian mind ... advances westward towards inevitable
conquest, it must inevitably carry with it Yoga and Vedanta for its
banners wherever it goes. But in order that the victory may
not be slow, it is necessary that whatever
India has to offer should be stated to the West in language that the
West can understand... Europe will
accept nothing which is not scientific... Undoubtedly, for
practical purposes the West is right....
Indian knowledge possesses such a
scientific basis, but ... expressed
only in broad principles, compact
aphoristic method has great advantages. It prevents the mind
from getting encrusted in details and fossilizing there It
allows a science to remain elastic and full of ever new
potentialitiesfor the discoverer. No
doubt, it has disadvantages. It leaves much room for inaccuracy ...
[reason], among other more important reasons, the Indian mind has thought it wise to give
a firm and absolute authority to the guru... In
Europe, the manual replaces the guru; the mind of the learner is
rigidly bound by the written rule and
detail not by the more adaptable and flexible word of the guru.

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".
