The good news for you is: There is oneness between you and Mahadeva.
The great news is: He is waiting to make you, give you that experience, understand?
The good news is: There is oneness between you and Mahadeva. The great news is: He is waiting to give that experience to you! When you cognize Mahadeva, don’t cognize him as your competitor. People think, ‘If I say I am Shiva, maybe he will be hurt. He will ask: What? You have become that qualified or what? You have started telling “Shivoham”!’ No! He will say, ‘Dear, start telling “Shivoham”. I will make you qualified.’ He is not going to demand Entry Ticket and qualification certificate to give you the experience of Shivoham. He is only going to say, ‘Start. I will give you the qualification.’
So, cognize always Mahadeva as a person who is sitting, encouraging you to start, and he will give you the experience. Don’t cognize him as a rough person, sitting, ‘Oh, you have become qualified? You started telling “Shivoham”? Even Narayana has not yet achieved that experience! You think you will achieve?’ No! He is not there to tell that, and he is not that type, I am telling you! I am telling you the truth as it is. When you say “Shivoham” and unable to maintain that powerful space and fall, he will only come and tell, ‘Don’t bother. Repeat more and more, cognize more and more, behave, act, live, more and more like Shivoham.’ There will be some part hypocritical. There will be some kind of hypocrisy in the initial level. Don’t bother. Start. That will be aligned!
So, understand, He is here to make you experience Him, because oneness between you and Him is Consciousness, understand? He is waiting to have you as part of him. He is waiting to receive you to be with him. He is waiting for you. You don’t even need to knock on the door. Go near the door; it is open! He is standing to receive you! The very idea “door is locked and you need to knock” is a stupid idea given to you! And you started believing it, because, you never went near the door! From a distance you assume the door is locked, you have to knock. No! Go near. It is open! He is standing there to receive you!
