This is just a transition period

 At the very outset, we have to know what we are seeking. We are seeking the truth. But what is the truth? The truth is that we are not this body, we are not these emotions, this intellect, this ego, these conditionings, but we are the Spirit, the Pure Spirit. This is one truth about ourselves.
 
There is a subtle power which is described as the all-pervading Power of God's love, as Paramachaitanya,  so many other words have been used for this power, which does all the living work. Like we see the flowers so beautiful as they are but we take them for granted. We don't see how they have come from a little seed, how they are blossoming in these different colors. All this living work we take for granted. We have also taken our evolution for granted and everything that autonomous nervous system does we have taken for granted, it's a good thing in a way because it's too much of a worry and botheration if you start thinking why of everything. But there is a power, which does all these things... 

In all the scriptures there's one common thing described, whether they have talked of the forms or the formless: that we have to seek the eternal and whatever is transitory is to be used with full understanding in its balance, and that's why we are lost where we have lost our balances. So the best thing is to get the connection with this Divine power, which gives us all the nourishment, all the care and all the knowledge that we have never known before, and for this you can't pay, you can't force it, you cannot compel anybody , you have to be absolutely free to get it, because after all, this is the ultimate freedom you have. You have freedom because you become such a dynamic, compassionate, wonderful personality that you just become a transformed, special, glorious person.
 
This is just a transition period, just to transition. When this evolution has to achieve its end and when it achieves its end you are, as promised, in the kingdom of God, and that's what has to happen. It's not just talk, talk, talk. It has to work out. The experience has to be there, and the experience of Realization is described very clearly in some of the scriptures which says that you have to feel the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost. In the Sanskrit language, Adi Shankaracharya has described as Salilam Salilam meaning cool breeze, cool breeze. Now this cool breeze is not chilling breeze nor is this a hot breeze but a kind of a cool soothing effects that you feel all around yourself which you have never felt before. You have never felt the existence of this all-pervading Power. But it is there, and one has to seriously think about it. It's nothing frivolous as I was also born in a Christian family so Sunday morning get ready, go to Church and meet few people, "Hello, hello," come back after the sermon, it's not like that. It's also not like going to a temple just pay a few rupees here, there and give something to the Deities and come back home. It is something that you become, becoming is the point."
