Having the clarity that Consciousness fills everything, by Consciousness all this is filled, if you understand, if you look at it with this cognition, you will have answer for the one-thousand questions you cherish. ‘Oh, if everything is Consciousness, why there is so much of suffering in the world?’ I don’t want to justify that. It may look insensitive. It may look insensitive. To the people suffering poverty, if I make a statement, it may look insensitive. But, I tell you, I completely have an understanding. I don’t have that question any more. If your cognition changes, you will also have answer for that question, but you will not be able to utter it for others. There are many answers you cannot utter, because it will create only more cross-questions, not the solution. If I give answer for this question – ‘Oh, if everything is Consciousness, why there is so much poverty in life?’ – it will only create more cross-questions, and people will feel hurt about their insensible sensitivities. No, these people who go on questioning me, ‘Why there is so much poverty?’, have they got down even one day into the ground and tried to eliminate people’s poverty? But, if I give any spiritual answer for it, they will use that to project that I am insensitive; but they themselves have never done anything sensibly to remove the poverty about which they are crying! I have done more actually! Most of the time, answers are taken for the sake of offending or defending their strategy. That is why, for some problems, the right cognition you need to have is given; so, automatically answer happens in you.
Understand, I tell you, understand this one truth: EVERYTHING IS CONSCIOUSNESS! So, your secret crush, or the fear of getting crushed, both will become meaningless when you understand everything is Consciousness. Secret crush, fear of getting crushed, both will become meaningless when you understand that whole life is Consciousness.
The secret crush you carry about everything, wealth, people, positions, powers, this throne….. That is why I have changed it! No, so many people have a secret crush for the throne! Mahadeva is the being who does not have anything, seeing which people will have a crush. Old bull (Nandi), and ordinary some tree beads (Rudraksha) is his ornament, and the “smashaana bhasma” – ash from the cremation ground; everything he has, no one will have crush. All the things Vishnu has, people will have a secret crush. Shyamanthaka (a precious jewel which has magic powers), Peethaambhara (beautiful yellow garment), Mukuta (crown), all the best things, and the Miss Universe, Lakshmi! Everything Vishnu has, people will slowly develop secret crush. But, with Mahadeva, nothing; you cannot have any secret crush.
Understand, when you bring this “Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath” (ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत्) as your cognition, your secret crush and fear of getting crushed, both will be crushed!
Only then, only from that context,“Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (तेन त्यक्तेनभुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्) happens! Only in that, “Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्) happens!
