Be a Gopal

You walk until you come to the ocean. You don’t walk or run in the ocean – you float and swim. Like this, once you come to the Master, seeking stops, blossomings begins.

You seek until you come to the Master.

Seeking is a desire. Desire is a thought. Thoughts are in the mind. The mind is in the Big Mind. The Big Mind is me is love. Emotions are ripples in love. Love is all Knowledge. Every atom of the Big Mind is crammed with Knowledge. Knowing this, you stop seeking.

You are Knowledge. Every atom in you is shimmering with Knowledge. In Sanskrit, this is called Go. Go has four meanings:

  • Knowledge
  • Movement
  • Achievement
  • Freedom or liberation

Pal means friend or protector – one who takes care of you. Be a Gopal (go-pal); be a friend in Knowledge. Often you become friends by:

  • Gossiping about negative things
  • Complaining
  • Similar cravings or aversions
  • Common enemies or common problems
  • Common goals or common addictions

You become friends with someone because you have something in common. But coming together in Knowledge is rare.

Be a friend in Knowledge. Uplift each other in Knowledge.

All Satsangees are Gopals – reminding each other of the Knowledge, coming together for Knowledge. That is Gopal. Be a protector of this Knowledge.
