Are we aware how many times we say "NO"? To every unpleasant sensation that arises, our first reaction to it is a big "no". As we say "NO" it stays, and the very fact it has arisen in us is because consciously or unconsciously we have said a NO to it sometime in the past.

When we say YES! we let things pass, we can see and experience the ever changing nature of every experience. When we say "yes" we start living in agreement, in acceptance, living in harmony with the opposites. Being in Love is nothing but being in the YES consciousness.

As a seeker if I wish to experience that which is beyond the opposites I need to say "YES". I need to say YES to all the so called negative emotions, I need to offer them a seat and may be even a little hug.

If I wish to experience the imperishable nature of the self I need to say YES to all the storms of emotions that arise in my mind even if they seem strong enough to destroy me.

Once a little 8 year old girl entered Guruji's Kutir looked straight into His eyes and said, " Guruji I know your secret ". Guruji very sweetly asked her," What is my secret?" She nodded and just said " YES " and ran out of the room. Guruji looked at everybody else and said ," she got it ".
