What we know as life, and this whole world, is through our senses. It is through seeing, hearing, touching, and understanding. The knowledge that we get through the five senses is of one level. There is another level which is higher than the knowledge that we get through the five sense, i.e., the knowledge which is through the intellect.
The knowledge from the intellect is superior to the knowledge through the senses.
We see the sun rising and the sun setting, but through the intellect we know that the sun is neither rising nor setting, it is the earth that rotates.
You had a strong intuition, but your logic said something different. Your intuition was completely different, and that is what happened. How many of you have had that experience? (Many raised their hands)
Everybody has this faculty but don't know how to use it.
Our body has access to many dimensions of reality, and we have the ability to attain these levels, to fulfill the desires of others, only if we have the password. As simple as that, yet very profound.
Why do you want to work? Why do you want to earn money? So that you can be comfortable, so that you can be happy.
Second is love. Suppose there is no love in your life, would you like to live on this planet? You won’t. Just imagine that nobody loves you on this planet, and you don't love anybody, then why do you have to be here?
So, happiness, love, and the third thing is knowledge.
These are the three things that everybody lives for, and they are of priority – love, happiness and knowledge.
You just look into anybody's eyes and you can see whether they are worried, tensed, angry or in love. You look into the eyes of a small baby, a puppy, a dog, they all express that love. There is one binding force in the whole universe in which all the atoms are bound, in which the trees are growing, animals are existing, wind is blowing, the earth is revolving, and that power is love.
Love cannot be hidden, at the same time you cannot express it fully. Nobody can express it totally, the more you express, you feel that something is lacking. You cannot express it hundred percent.
Similarly death; all of us are going to die one day. We are all going to get old, you can’t avoid it.
Can you renounce beauty? If you can renounce it, then it is not beauty.
Can you possess beauty? You cannot possess it.
Truth cannot be avoided, nor defined. Beauty cannot be renounced, nor possessed. Love cannot be hidden, nor fully expressed. Think deeper into these points and more wisdom will blossom within you.
