When we go to bed, we are just normal human beings. We are not ministers going to bed - that attitude will disturb the mind, because it is an The Study And Practice Of Yoga Volume I By Swami Krishnananda The Study and Practice of Yoga, (Volume I) by Swami Krishnananda 35 34 attitude put on under external pressure and circumstances which are not normal and usual to our intrinsic make-up. So if spirituality is like this - that which has been put on, that which has been made up, that which has been created artificially by circumstances, deliberately or otherwise, then it is not going to help us.
The mind is not averse to spiritual consciousness, but it is averse to any kind of punishment that we mete out to it. This is the case with any schoolboy or student. It is difficult to believe that anyone would be averse to education. But one does not want that kind of education which involves punishment of some sort or the other. What is punishment? It is a deliberate and persistent refusal to give what one feels is an immediate necessity. The difficulty of the spiritual seeker in this respect is immense.
The world has gone because we have left it as something non-essential, and God has not come - perhaps He is not willing to come. So, what is our condition? Most miserable. This condition of helplessness is a dangerous situation where anything can happen to any person. The condition of vacuum is not a safe one. The wind can blow from any side, and we do not know from which side it will blow. It will simply blast us in a direction of which we cannot have any kind of idea at the present moment. This situation of vacuum, a sense of emptiness and hopelessness, arises on account of a peculiar psychological reaction that is set up by the mind on account of a protracted control of the senses and practise of austerity for years together.
