Premodaya's picture



Your situation is quite simple; you have this choice or that choice. You don’t have a complex set of options to work out or decisions to make. You’ve got a very simple situation: You’re either going to go to God, or Truth—or you’re not. You either want it, or you don’t. And if you do want it—and want to go—and decide to go—then you can do it the bhakti way (the devotional way), and then it’s kind of like, you buy a ticket, and it’s all set. Or—you can grope your way, go on your own legs—which is your only other option.

When you learn the knack of that, you’re going in the right direction. So there are only two choices, there are only two ways to live: You can live by being led by your thoughts—or you can live by you leading your thoughts.
