Example text

Et encore là, il y a deux langages : quand vous serez vraiment déçus, entièrement déçus, désillusionnés, il n’y a rien à trouver, c’est le « miroir aux alouettes » – ou quand vous serez entièrement contentés, comblés – eh bien maintenant j’ai tout dans ce domaine – vous serez disponibles pour vous tourner vers la Conscience. Swâmiji, lui, utilisait les deux approches : quand vous serez entièrement satisfaits et quand vous serez entièrement déçus – les deux en même temps. Vous êtes tellement attirés par l’existence?

En ce qui concerne un futur possible, est-ce qu’elles correspondent à la réalité? Si vous deviez aller vivre au Sahara et que toutes vos pensées tournent autour de la crainte que le climat trop humide soit fâcheux pour vos rhumatismes, une telle stupidité serait criante. Naturellement, quand je prends un exemple comme celui-ci, vous êtes tous d’accord mais ce qui devient plus intéressant c’est de détecter ce fonctionnement dans les situations concrètes de vos existences, au moment où des réflexions dénuées de tout fondement parviennent quand même à vous duper, malgré votre bon sens et bien que vous soyez déjà familiarisés avec cet enseignement.

Swâmiji m’a montré avec la rigueur que vous connaissez l’importance de l’émotion : l’émotion n’est ja- mais justifiée. Est-ce qu’il y a ou non émotion? Si j’ai encore des émotions, je le constate, je ne peux pas me faire d’illusion. Cependant, pour la plupart de ceux qui ont lu mes livres et qui ont cru découvrir l’enseignement de Swâmiji, la nocivité des émotions a pris une importance si grande que la pensée proprement dite, ce qui se produit dans l’intellect, le cerveau, est passée au second plan et le thème fondamental de la maîtrise des pensées n’a pas été compris.
