So when you are enlightened, the conscious mind is something like a tree into which the sap is now flowing. It may be that it is just like a leaf or it may be it is like a flower, or maybe it is like a fruit. So it changes its forms once he gets realization. If a person gets realization then the conscious mind moves on, getting more and more light. Say, for example, when the electricity comes, you can see this room, you can see another’s room, you can see another room, you can go round and see and again, again you will see it all the rooms; then you become aware of all the rooms. So you are conscious of all these. But in the beginning you are just conscious of the room where you are standing, isn’t it?
So the conscious mind’s definition cannot be given after realization. A person like Me, say for example, has a conscious mind that might envelop the whole world. Or a conscious mind of a person who is realized soul who is still not anywhere, just started, then he’s only conscious as to where is right, where is left, where is this. So before the realization the conscious mind sees things around you. Out of that also there are categories. Some people see, say, for artists can see something, and a scientist can see something, another poet will see something. So it depends on the conscious mind how it is, has got the trend. But still it won’t see something that is subtle behind it, and that only is possible after you get your realization.

All the knowledge is within you. If you only can get light there, you can see all that knowledge is within you. You don’t have to go anywhere for your knowledge. It’s all inside; everything is built in. You are built in so beautifully to become your Spirit that I don’t have to do much about. It just works out. Only thing is that one has to know what we should expect; to be the Spirit, what should be our expectations. And that also logically you must understand. It should be a logical conclusion. Not just because I say something, because you have become a member of some group, because you have paid money somewhere. It’s not that way. Reality is what it is. And logically it has to be reality…
In our evolution we are human beings, our awareness is that of human beings and this awareness of human beings is not the ultimate. If it was we would not have been seeking. It’s not the end of it. We have to reach at a point where something more has to happen to us. Now how do we approach the subject logically? In our evolution, what has happened to us? We were animals; from there we became human beings. What is so special about human beings compared to animals?…
We are made humans beings to feel that Divine Power, to manoeuvre that Divine Power and just enjoy the bliss of divinity. That Divine Power is the Collective Being, that gives us collective. The Spirit in our heart is the One, which is the Collective Being within us, which manifests that Divine Power to flow through, and that’s how, once we are connected with the mains, we start becoming what we are for. Like a machine, once it is put to the mains it gets its meaning; but this machine, though it is put to the mains, is not aware of the electricity, about My voice, anything. But a human being, when he gets connected with the mains, then he becomes aware, and this is what you must see.
