When you know yourself you are surprised that the greatest thing for you is to love and to be loved. You enjoy that collective love so much you absolutely overcome your baser self….
We human beings, so-called, are very selfish, self-centred and only worried about ourselves. That is what is said, but it’s surprising that with Self-realisation, with self-knowledge, with knowing yourself, you understand how rich you are within, how great you are within and how capable you are. This understanding comes to you and then that is expressed in such a beautiful manner….
When you know yourself, when you know what is reality and what is absolute truth, you just get dissolved into that knowledge. Of course, you are not knowledgeable in the way people are. You are knowledgeable in the real sense of the word because you realise what is within you is a big power of love. There’s a big power of understanding, a big power of oneness of the collective.
This collectivity works wonders and gives such joy that we are all one, we have no enemies, we have no problems. We are all one together. This joy was expressed by you is like the waves that go to the shores, touch the shores and come back, creating beautiful patterns. And I see that happening now, that these beautiful patterns are showing in your own life, in your lifestyle, in your behaviour….
There can be a diamond, very expensive, but it doesn’t know its value. There could be some dog or some animal which must be something par excellence, but he doesn’t know what he is. The same thing happens with human beings until they get their Self-realisation. And after realisation, they suddenly become aware of what they are and then suddenly they become very humble. They become very loving….
All this is because we have an innate value system, because we have inborn within us a great sense of love and compassion. This compassion has to be really understood and enjoyed and jump in the ocean of compassion – so beautiful. And you’ll be amazed that automatically you’ll swim, automatically you’ll meet other people also in the same ocean and – without any problems, without any troubles – all enjoying the bliss of this love, this compassion, this divine love.
