When you spend time with great souls, it is not easy to accept everything that you are told. The irony is that once you get it, it is as hard to explain to others as it is for them to accept it. We do have a lot of freedom and for that reason we also suffer. We cannot accept the will of God. We bind ourselves with attachments and chase tirelessly after our infinite desires. We are the cause for everything that happens to us. It is hard for us to blame everything on ourselves. All the spiritual masters can do is advise us. If I obey, I would have a comfortable, peaceful, easeful and useful life. But that would be boring for someone like me. Disobedience definitely has spiced up my life. Satish Daryanani
