37. When you sit in yoga, when you stabilise yourself in the seed stage, there is no need to churn the ocean of knowledge. You can churn the ocean of knowledge even whilst walking, moving, bathing and eating. The time for a heart to heart conversation is fixed for amritvela. In the same way, when first sit, spend some time in stabilising yourself in the awareness of the point, and then have a heart to heart conversation. When you find you are not able to stabilise yourself for a long time, then catch hold
of the second stage (heart to heart conversation). But what happens is that because it is easy to have a subtle heart to heart conversation and to churn the ocean of knowledge, you do that very quickly. Because it is difficult to stabilize yourself in the awareness of the point, you pay less attention to that. But it is essential to have that stage. You will only be able to make the avyakt stage permanent with the practice of being bodiless and staying in the awareness of the point. Otherwise you continually come into a corporeal feeling. There has to be such a practice that you should be able to forget the consciousness of the body and yet also be aware of it. By having such a stage you will not experience punishment from Dharamraj at the end. Otherwise because of the strong sanskars you have, there will be the experience of punishment. The practice of the awareness of the point is lacking. When you stabilize yourself in the awareness of the point, a sparkle will be visible on your forehead. Your memorial of the third eye will be physically visible through the stage of the soul. By staying in this stage, you will automatically become introverted. And solitude will pull you even when you are not especially practicing it. You can experience this even whilst talking. However, unless you have the practice of sitting in solitude, you
will not be able to experience this stage whilst performing actions. Knowledge becomes merged internally when you remain stable in the awareness of the point. Everything is merged in the seed, and so when the seed is sown in the earth, everything emerges. In the same way, all knowledge is merged in the awareness of the point. It emerges when you come down. When you have the awareness of the point, your stage remains full.
