In 2016 one of the
held in the divine presence at Ottawa, Canada. A devotee asked if he could get direct instructions from Swami.
And here is what Swami said:
You are not ready to follow yet. They were the ones who were ready to jump. You have to get ready. You have to develop the faith first. I cannot hang a portrait on a shaky nail; I have to hammer a little deeper so that it will become stronger. I have prepared them over the years. Develop that faith and I will give you work, but you have to be ready first. Slowly get yourself ready.
While waiting for the elevator, Swami said, "Just like this elevator, God too comes down to take people up to higher levels. However, there is limited space inside the lift and those who are early, benefit from it.
Others have to wait for the lift to come down again. This is the way of the incarnations too. Many miss the opportunity for they are not ready to board even when the opportunity knocks and have to wait for another opportunity to be with the Avatar." An important lesson to mull upon.
