As people start becoming collective, they do not bother others, they do not trouble others, but they give joy to others. They are not bothered about their going and coming, their eating and everything. They just don’t behave like mundane, usual type of people, but they are very patient - saburi, as they call it. They are in the patience.
Now this patience is most joy-giving. Patience gives you the greatest joy. When you are patient, you develop all your qualities. I think in patience you blossom the best. But patience is not just to be patient. Patience is also a kind of a state within us. With just this patience … you just watch and see. Wherever you are, you are.
Now some people are worried that they must get into the bus. Some people are worried they must reach back home. Some people are worried they must get their food in time. According to them this is discipline. This is not. This is conditioning. But what is the discipline is of patience in Sahaja Yoga, where you watch everything and you are patient. If you are in the bus, you are there. If you are standing on the road, you are there. If you are walking on the road, you are there. On the contrary, it is a good idea to walk…. It’s a very good idea. Leisurely you can walk … to feel that, “I have to walk. I have to go there.” Once you start thinking you get exhausted sitting here, even if you have not walked. So it is important that patience should be made the discipline of life….
Patience is my quality. It’s my nature which I enjoy most of all…. If I lost my way, I enjoy it because I am there to enjoy myself.
