We bloom when krshna is with us

God is not something that is available ready-made; it is our potential. We can actualize it, but we go on missing it. Man is like a seed: the seed has the potential to become the tree, but only the potential. It is not yet the tree; it can miss also. And millions of people go on missing. They are born as seeds, they live as seeds, they die as seeds; they never bloom, they never become self-actualized people.
Man blooms only when he is in contact with Krshna (the god of gods); in the presence of Krshna. The remembrance of Krshna functions almost like the sun rising in the morning. When the sun raises buds start opening on their own accord. Just the presence of the sun is enough and something starts happening in the hearts of the buds.
We carry all the treasures within but we never search our treasures within; it remains there waiting for us. We go on becoming Bankrupt because our all searches are in the outside world; we have not reached our Heart. And the krshna is waiting there. He is our innermost core, he is our life. Krshna happens when we know who we are. Krshna is there, only when heart is there. Modern man has by and by lost all track of his own heart. For us, heart has become only a physical thing, a pumping station for blood and purification. The true heart which is hidden behind the physical heart is fully ignored. We have still not descended from the head.
We have not come out of the flat life, the horizontal process of mundane life. Activate the heart, and Empower it. We can feel changing dimension from the horizontal to the vertical, we can move to the heights and the depths. We carry within us heights of the Himalayas and depths of the Pacific. And when one has known all the possible heights and all the possible depths, then only one does know what a treasure life has been. Once that divineness is tasted then many unwanted things disappear on their own accord. Like the sculptor chiseling out the unwanted portion of rock and suddenly there appears krshna in it.
