The Golden Age Number 8, Thursday, June 22, 1974
"By meditating on the radiance of the nails of the Lotus Feet of the Perfect Master, the Divine Light illumines the heart. When so much is in the importance of worshipping Him, only a devotee of the Guru can appreciate the great benefit which can be derived by seeing Him and listening to His discourses. One does not attain liberation without listening to the discourses of saints, who in turn are not available without the Grace of God."
"We have to focus ourselves. And the more you focus yourself, the more precise and unique your experience becomes. The whole thing depends upon you, upon your concentration.
It is a very fortunate thing that Guru Maharaj Ji has made us his devotees. There are so many people in the world who are still lost. Guru Maharaj Ji has come in this world and chosen us. He has made us his devotees and we have to remain as he made us."
The following year I went to live in Sydney, and again found that I was being accepted, this time into a crowd of very cynical, drunken, people. I was deliriously happy, life couldn't have been rosier. For a long time I overdid the drinking, the looning around, still feeling that I had to do something to be accepted. Finally in early 1969 I left the person I had been living with and decided to go to London
Isn't there a dependency then, on the Guru who took you out of the mud?
We all have to be dependent. Of course you have to be dependent, to the higher one. Because you must understand one thing, that you are still a baby, everyone is a baby, understand? You can't walk. You don't want to crawl because our knees will hurt. You want to walk, and to walk we need someone's hand. And the only one who can give us his hand is Guru. No one else. To keep us moving we need his help.
