BEING CONSCIOUS

In spiritual life there are two things – being subject-conscious and being object-conscious. Thinking of Bhagavan is being ‘subject-conscious’. Thinking of what the aspirant has achieved — his progress, his spiritual experiences so far, etc. — is being ‘object-conscious’.

We should always be only subject conscious. Being object-conscious is not good.The subject and the object are inseparable. So if we attain the subject (Bhagavan), the object (spiritual progress) will automatically happen. But if we keep thinking of the object, there is danger of forgetting the subject.

In fact, when we say we should not be object-conscious, remember that we should not even think, ‘Let me think of the subject, then the object will follow.’ Even that thought — that the object will follow — should be avoided.
