SRI BHAGAVAN: "In the the inner world, you should stop all analysis, You should stop all effort. These have no place in the inner world. The problem with us is, in the external world, we've got to analyze, we've got to put an effort,we carry the same tools inside. That's where the problem is. In the inner world, we must put aside these tools. You must not try to understand because you cannot understand. And you cannot put any effort because effort is the problem.
Let us say you suffer from jealousy and you want to become free of jealousy, and you're putting some effort. That effort only is jealousy. You are getting trapped in the illusion that jealousy is something separate and working to be free of it is something separate, but if you look closely you'll find that that very effort is jealousy. When the effort stops, there is no jealousy at all.
Similarly here, the truth is your heart has not flowered. The truth is you do not feel connected. You feel alienated. That is the truth. There is no other truth. So, you begin there. Do not try to get somewhere, you can never get anywhere. Begin where you are. And the first step is also the last step. Become intensely aware that you do not have a connection, that you do not experience unconditional love. All your love is conditional,all your joy is conditional,all your affection is conditional. That is the truth. Don't feel bad about it. Don't shy away from it. Don't try to explain it away. That is the truth. Hold on to that truth. That's all you've got to do.
The only other support could be a blessing which you could receive. Do nothing else. Wait until something happens. And it will happen very fast. It must happen naturally-automatically. If you try to bring it about, you could try for a million years. You're not going to get anywhere. The only thing is-with effortless effort... effort in the sense that you could bring in some teachings, that you can get a blessing, that may be the effort part.
Thereafter it's all automatic because you become intensely aware of the truth that you do not have love, that the heart has not flowered, that you do not feel connected. Don't let go of that. It could be two days, three days, four days, as long as you can, just be there until it all happens. Don't even expect something, don't even wait for something. The only truth is- love is not there. Just stay there."
