So now, as you are created in the same image of Shri Ganesh, you have
to understand that you have to accept whatever God has given you;
whatever position He has given you. Same with Christ - Christ accepted
His father who was just a carpenter. He didn't aspire for something
higher or some sort of a special position or a power because He was so
powerful - what more power can He have? Though people mocked at Him
and laughed at Him and could not accept what He was saying, but still
He was self-contented, self-satisfied; He knew what it was. So, for a
Sahaja Yogi, first thing is to be self-contented...

So, what we lack is wisdom. That's a vicious circle, I must say, that
Ganesha is to be awakened to give you wisdom – He is the giver of
wisdom, He is the giver of wisdom – and He has to give you the wisdom,
He is to be awakened; but you are not wise because He is not awakened.
It's a very vicious circle. How to make this vicious circle break?
That "Let my wisdom shine in my attention.' 'Let Shri Ganesha throw
His light in my attention.'
