69. Sweet Child, always pick up virtues. You have to be content in praise and defamation, benefit and loss, victory and defeat and also you have to be merciful. When you come into action, if you look towards each one’s special virtue, you will then forget all the other things. You have to make effort to make yourself complete with virtues. Together with coolness, you have to give light to everyone. You will be able to become the embodiment of power when you have an avyakt stage. Even if you come into the corporeal form whilst being in the avyakt form, that is just for the sake of service. When that service finishes, you have to remain in the avyakt stage. You have to maintain such a practice. One is a virtue (gunn) and together with that, there are also termites (ghun). If you don’t see the virtues, the termites set in. You have to see each one’s virtue, then the termites that have set in will be finished. Always pick up virtues. You have to be content in praise and defamation, benefit and loss, victory and defeat, and you also have to be merciful. You have been using, as an instrument, points of knowledge to hide the weakness in your effort. Finish all these methods and all your obstacles will finish automatically.
You have to imbibe four powers. In fact it is one and the same Godly power, but this is said in order to make it clear.
1) The power to pack up, that is, the power to make something short.
2) The power to accommodate
3) The power to tolerate and
4) The power to confront (the maya).
If you imbibe all these four powers, you will be able to remain completely and eternally surrendered.Those who have an easy nature will also be co-operative with others. Those who have love for all will always receive co-operation from all. This is why they are able to confront everything or pack up. To the extent their nature is easy, Maya will confront them less. They are loved by all. Those with an easy nature never have waste thoughts nor is their time wasted. Because of not having waste thoughts, their intellect remains broad and farsighted, and therefore, no obstacle can confront them. The more there is easiness, the greater the cleanliness. Cleanliness attracts everyone towards itself. Cleanliness means honesty as well as being clean. Those who have an easy nature can adopt (mould into) many forms. You can give any form to something that is soft. One is the power to mould and the other is the power to apply a brake. Although you know how to mould, you sometimes take a long time. You have to have such thoughts that you don’t take a long time. The moment you have a thought, it should take a practical form. You must have only those thoughts that are successful. Each thoughts of yours has value. To the extent that you think about it in depth, to that extent, you will bring it about it in action and into your activity in a practical form. In order to reveal those sanskars, go into depth of each aspect and merge each of those sanskars into your every vein. Those who have a subtle intellect will be able to mould themselves according to circumstance. They will have the courage to confront anything. They will never be confused, but they will go into the depth of whatever the situation is and move according to that. Only when you are light will you be able to mould yourselves.Only when something is warm and soft can it be moulded. The softness is humility and the warmth is the form of power. Humility means the form of love. Those who have love for every soul will be able to remain humble. If there is no love, neither will they be able to become merciful nor will they be humble. This is why there has to be humility and the form of power. To the extent that you are humble, there should be the feeling of being a master. There should be the feeling of being a master in the form of power; and in humility, there should be the virtue of serving.There should be service and also the feeling of being a master of the world. When you have both this softness and warmth, you will be able to mould yourself in every aspect. Each of you has to check that the intellect is equally balanced with warmth and softness. Sometimes, extreme humility causes damage and sometimes the extreme feeling of being a master causes damage. There will be as much greatness as there is equality. Now, do you understand in which one aspect you will pass with honour?
