Some know how to keep secrets, and others cannot withhold any information. When I was with my spiritual Masters, many things were told to me and they said, “This is between us.” These things will go with me to my grave. Selective information from the Masters who have left their bodies can be mentioned if it helps in spreading the teachings. Those who cannot keep secrets lose my confidence and I am very careful about how I speak to them. They are not in my inner circle. This weakness of not keeping secrets makes one lose the opportunity to gain knowledge and wisdom. People lose trust in you. Now the most important part of keeping secrets is when you go within. The entire truth, the map of the entire creation, can be experienced by you. There is so much information that you can burst out with the load. If you try to explain it to the world, people will think you are crazy and put you in an asylum. Very few can understand what you are saying. These secrets from the Lord can be disclosed in very small, diluted doses to the true seekers who are ready at the right time. The rest of the stuff is like working for the CIA—given on a need-to-know basis. So practice by keeping small secrets from your friends, family, and coworkers. Then the Masters and the Lord can trust you with the secrets of the real you. — Satish Daryanani
