Question: At present I understand, but when the moment comes, I blend with the situation, and realize much too late, what must be done?
Swami Ramsukhdasji: Now you say that - you understand right now, but the moment that a favourable or unfavourable situation comes, at that moment, you cannot tell. You become united and blend with it. After becoming connected with it, you realize later that you have blended. The answer is that even after recognizing this later, think that you were not joined at that time as well. You had simply believed that you were joining. It was never with you, and you were apart from it. With such understanding, become silent!! That is it! It will go away. By giving importance to the joy and sorrow from the union, the clatter within continues. Therefore do not give it any significance. Talk to it and say, you were never connected, then it will be wiped out, eradicated entirely. When you become aware, then say to yourself, that no - no, you were never united with it.
