The Power Within Us
We are so lucky to have found a living Master who has taken us under His wing and taught us meditation and how to become spiritually independent. He has taught us to ignite the spiritual fuel lying unused within us and fired us in such a way that soul-realisation happened, the divinity within has been awakened.
The divine lies latent within each one of us but we live in a complete state of body consciousness. It takes a realised Master to awaken the divinity within us and make us embark on our journey to soul consciousness. The Master bestows us with the spiritual experience of self-realisation, with time we come to experience our soul and finally comes inner knowledge. This entire process takes a lot of time and complete dedication is required to be given by the seeker, to progress from self-realisation, to soul-realisation and thence to inner knowledge.
With each progressive step we keep getting spiritual experiences and keep awakening a portion of the power lying dormant within us. The Master puts a portion of himself in each one of us and then like Sadhguru Jaggi Vasdev has mentioned, the seed functions like a GPS — and the Satguru knows the status of every disciple through the ‘Guru Positioning System’!
We always had this power in the past births, but unfortunately man pushed God out of his life and go stuck up in egotistical battles. There is no way the world can change without change in the individual. That can happen only when each one of us awakens the divine within us, and when that happens the collective divine power will become a tremendous force of positivity which could have a positive impact on the way the world is functioning today.
We need to perform our spiritual practice and that in turn helps our soul guide us in our day-to-day life. The change in our persona becomes obvious to others who meet us. We get to hear comments like, “What is it about you? There is something different. What is there about you that is so different? Why do I feel peace and love in your presence?”
This happens naturally when people come within your energy field or aura, they feel good and peaceful — that is just one of powers that comes naturally. We just need to be careful and avoid developing an ego about this. The divinity and the energy come from the spiritual seed implanted in us by the Master, our spiritual practice nourishes the seed into a veritable tree in which others seek shelter and quietude. We become ambassadors of our Master, reflecting the power of God and Guru to the outside world.
