Recognize your orientation

Mohanji

Question: What is more important in spirituality – faith or being objective?
Mohanji:
Being practical. This is very important in spirituality. Spirituality is not apart from you. Spirituality is your connection with the spirit aspect of you, which is the consciousness aspect. It has three dimensions, the waking state, the deep sleep state and the dream state. In these three states, you are experiencing this incarnation, your life on earth, every day 24 hours. So while you are awake, it is very important to be practical. For example, many have come to me and asked, what is the right path? You can’t generalize the right path, because it is individualistic, because it is as you are. Some people love to experience devotion, Bhakti, because their orientation is Bhakti.
Some people like the path of knowledge, the questions and the answers, because they operate from their intellect. You cannot deny that. That is the way they are, so when somebody is operating from their intellect, they need answers and that is the Gyan-marg – the path of knowledge. Then there is path of service. They are very kind at heart. They want to serve the world. They love everybody. They have a lot of compassion. The kindness overwhelms them. All these are signs of a Karma Yogi, somebody who is there for the world. So it is very important to recognize our orientation and based on our orientation, we should choose our path. Hence, no generalization is possible. That is why I said practicality is very important. Objectivity is not as important as practicality. Even if a Guru or spiritual master gives you something that you can’t use, guides you to a method that is not suitable to you, you should be very practical about it. You should say that this doesn’t suit me and instead choose something which suits you, because the entire spiritual journey is about you.
