VBT – How to Choose Technique 000.2
Really, when you try the right method it clicks immediately. So I will go on talking about methods here every day. You try them. Just play with them – go home and try. The right method, whenever you happen upon it, just clicks. Something explodes in you, and you know that “This is the right method for me.” But effort is needed, and you may be surprised that suddenly one day one method has gripped you.
So while I am suggesting here, parallel to it go on playing with these methods. I say playing because you should not be too serious. Just play! Something may fit you. If it fits you, then be serious, and then go deep into it – intensely, honestly, with all your energy, with all your mind. But before that just play.
I have found that while you are playing your mind is more open. While you are serious your mind is not so open; it is closed. So just play. Do not be too serious, just play. And these methods are simple, you can just play with them.
Take one method and play with it for at least seven days. If it gives you a certain feeling of affinity, if it gives you a certain feeling of well-being, if it gives you a certain feeling that this is for you, then be serious about it. Then forget the others, do not play with other methods. Stick to it – at least for three months. Miracles are possible. The only thing is that the technique must be for you. If the technique is not for you, then nothing happens. Then you may go on with it for lives together, but nothing will happen. If the method is for you then even three minutes are enough.
So these one hundred and twelve methods can be a miraculous experience for you, or they may just be a listening – it depends on you. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for seven days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months. Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it.
Shiva proposes one hundred and twelve methods. These are all the methods possible. If nothing clicks and nothing gives you the feeling that this is for you, then there is no method left for you – remember this. Then forget spirituality and be happy. Then it is not for you.
But these one hundred and twelve methods are for the whole humanity – for all the ages that have passed and for all the ages that have yet to come. In no time has there ever been a single man, and there will never be one, who can say, “These one hundred and twelve methods are all useless for me.” Impossible! This is impossible!
Every type of mind has been taken into account. Every possible type of mind has been given a technique in tantra. There are many techniques for which no man exists yet; they are for the future.
There are many techniques for which no man exists now; they are for the past. But do not be afraid.
There are many methods which are for you.
