Three disciplines are essential, to become aware of divinity in all and in the Avatar : No activity should be taken up with individual aggrandisement in view; intellect and emotion must be directed to the revelation of the resident in the heart, Atma; every act should be done sincerely, with love, with no yearning for acquiring personal profit, fame or benefit. Above all, listen to the voice of God within. As soon as one contemplates a wrong act, that voice warms, protests, and advises giving up. It pictures the shame that has to be suffered, the punishment that has to be faced, the disgrace that it entails. It would appear as if there are two personalities inside you, the one that prompts and the one that prevents. The warning signal, the timely advice, is given by the jangam in the angam. It reminds you of the absurdity and the danger inherent in the identification of the Self with the body, it encourages you to discriminate between right and wrong; it is God, enthroned in every heart as the highest wisdom, the Prajnana, the Eternal Witness, whom you can contact easily in the depths of dhyana.
