So this mind is just a myth and we are working through this mind. We are all the time satisfying ourselves by saying, "Oh that's my mind. My mind wants it." You see, like one Indian Sahaja Yogi went to America. And he told me that Americans are manavede. Manavede means they are mad after their mind. I said, "What do you mean?" He said, "I gave money to my wife to buy one good shirt for me. She went and bought some skirts. She has many skirts but she bought some skirts. So I asked her why did you buy the skirts. She said, my mind said that you should buy the skirts, so I bought skirts."

So this is what it is that the mind can take you to all kinds of wrong things because, firstly, it has no connection with reality and, secondly, it is a mythical thing. Absolutely mythical.

You see, people think that whatever they have created, it is out of their mind. It is a wrong idea, absolutely a wrong idea. All great scientists, say Einstein has said that he was tired of trying to find out the Theory of Relativity, very tired. He had some concept, like all scientists take up some sort of a concept and they try to build up their research on that, and then he thought its a wrong concept that I have taken. Suddenly, he said, I went into the garden. I said let's try and play with the soap bubbles. He was playing with the soap bubbles like a small child. And suddenly from somewhere unknown, he says, the Theory of Relativity dawned upon him.

Many scientists have said that, that they don't know from where they get this idea, from where did they get it. People are now making a special study to find out how these scientists got these things and in a very Sahaja manner. Even the way penicillin was discovered, or anything was discovered by these people, was not through the probing or manipulation of the mind but through some unknown force it came into their mind and that's what they thought that this was from their mind. Some, some, but most of them realised - even Newton realised that it is coming from something, some source of which he was not aware.

As Sahaja Yogis you know that it is the source of the Divine power which is all-pervading, the Paramchaitanya. You know because you can feel it. You know that it is there. But even when you know, you must understand that you have to go beyond your mind, into thoughtless awareness - minimum. Always I tell you, "Meditate! Meditate!", because you should be in thoughtless awareness, where you do not react. So what happens is that you become a witness. You become the witness of the whole drama, of the whole scene and you are absolutely at ease with yourself. No problem. And what you are doing is that you become an instrument of this Paramchaitanya, of this all-pervading power. You are just watching. You are a witness and as watching everything you realise that whatever you watch cannot react on you. But you know what it is. And this is a state in which you understand the reality of the whole situation.
