example: yesterday you came to Bangalore and from there to
Puttaparti by car. Travel is work. It took you four hours
to come from Bangalore. That is time. You came here to see
Swami. That is the reason. Having seen Him you felt happy.
This is the result.
On the other hand, last night you dreamed
you were in America and were shopping. In this, the four factors
were not involved. There was no work, there was no time expended,
and where is the result? This is untruth. That experience
was imagination, only mind work. This is the difference between
truth and imagination.
H: But truth, that is, in
terms of work, time, reason and result – you look around
the world and you see those things in operation; and the world
is in a mess. So, there must be more to it than that?
