ONE CENTRAL POINT
A lot can be learned from little children. When they're awake they start discovering the world around them. They touch everything, feel everything, and want to taste everything. It's like they're born into the world and now they're experiencing everything that comes before them.
We all did the very same thing. Each one of us came from the womb into the world and we. started out just learning to see, learning to hear, learning to hold things, discovering. Then we keep going on, we. keep growing tip, keep changing, trying to find something. We keep searching.
We're searching for something so perfect; we're searching for an experience. Everything we do - everything we eat, everything we see, everything we hear - is just an experience. But there's one experience that goes beyond all others, and that is the experience of this Knowledge.
This Knowledge can't be described, but this Knowledge is life itself. This Knowledge is infinite. This Knowledge is the experience that we've all been born for. It's like we have a button in the center of our heart and from the moment of our birth we're always waiting for that button to be pressed. Because that button is the button that lets us experience everything. It lets us experience this Knowledge.
We experience so many things, and maybe they come close to that central button. Sometimes religion brings someone very close to experiencing that central thing. Or the love of another human being. Or even, for some people, music can tune them into it. At least, it's bringing them close. But we never really hit that one central button, that one central point, until Guru Maharaj Ji comes and presses that button. That's when we receive Knowledge. Then that is the experience we've wanted. We know it. There's no doubt about it, because we experience it.
If we meditate on this Knowledge then we stay in this experience; we don't lose it like we lose everything else in this life. Everythingelse we experience just goes away or it's here but it changes. We're waiting for that experience that never changes, that's always here within us.
Sometimes we wake up from a bad dream and we feel like we've just had a very negative feeling, an alone feeling. And sometimes when a child wakes up, he forgets where his father is, where his mother is, where his security is. We're like that, too. We're in the world and we forget that when we really wake up that Knowledge is always, always there; our father is always there. And he is. He shows us that no matter what, the Knowledge, the love we have always wanted is always, always there. - A.G.
