The generosity of loving others, the generosity through compassion – compassion does not mean that you should pity someone, but compassion means the sharing of personality, the sharing of love personality. And that is where we miss the point, that compassion means somebody has to be helped. Sahaja Yoga compassion is not that. Sahaja Yoga compassion is sharing.
First is the forgiveness…. Second is – you can call it the compassion or the detachment leading to compassion…. Thirdly is the compassion. These are the wheels of your chariot which moves you. These are the wheels you should remember.
Now, if you go further with it, with the detachment – supposing it works out in you – even you become compassionate. Even if that comes, still what is the judging point? How do you know that you are all right? How do you measure? How do you find out that you are all right? What do you call to take the bearing of the ship? How do you know? You must have peace. You should be a peaceful person.
Agitation should be outside, but you should be an absolutely peaceful person. If you are not a peaceful person, then be sure that you are not yet there where you should have been….
So if you still have a temper, then know that your progress is very slow….
If you are argumentative, then know that you are not yet there where you have to be. A peaceful person goes to a point and then argues it out. If you are argumentative, then your progress is not all right.
So a person has to be absolutely peaceful, and this peace is the most effective thing. We are seeking the peace of the universe…. You can only achieve it through the spirit, which is the source of all the peace…. Peace is the greatest powerful thing on this Earth….
