One, the moment you say something is science, what works for one can work for all. So, none of us have to be less in life. No more. None of us have to be average in life, no more.
Two, your intelligence has to direct itself towards the cause and not the effect. Sometimes that’s why we need a higher intelligence. If I’m not able to find the cause, can the higher intelligence explain to me what that cause is?
Three. The responsibility of it working for you, does not depend on it. It depends on you, which means, that omnipotent energy has to flow into you.
You have to grow in faith, because faith only opens the door of that energy. It is energy is there. Intelligent effort, that’s what we are discussing.
You will have to, now mature into, that effort is always on the cause and not the effect. How do I get that energy to work into this intelligent effort of mine? Faith in that energy.
If spirituality is not helping you to grow in faith, spirituality has failed in you. Electricity is not a failure. In your case, it’s a failure because you don’t know how to make it work for you.
It failed you. It’s not a failure. So that energy can work for you. So how do I develop?
And fourth, it’s about my development. If spirituality stops with glorification of God, and does not transform me, to elevating my consciousness to that level, from where, that energy can work through me, for me.
Then it has not served its purpose at all. If spirituality has just attained mere glorification of God, it does not attain anything.
In the context of connecting it back to Valmiki, if Ramayana has only introduced Rama to you, and if Ramayana has not introduced you to you, Ramayana has failed for you.
Knowing Ramayana should help you to know yourself. But if knowing Ramayana has only helped you to know Rama, and not yourself, then Ramayana has still not achieved its objective in your life.
