Q.) We were given levels of awakening in India. What is the one thing that we can do to expand our consciousness into higher and higher levels of awakening and oneness with the divine? How do we know we are transformed?
SRI BHAGAVAN: "Suppose you want to look at yourself. You need a mirror. Now, here the mirror is relationship. Relationship is the mirror in which you could see yourself. If your relationship is improving, it means you are getting transformed. And conversely, if you keep working on your relationships, starting of course with your parents, then your spouse, your children, your friends, your relatives, you will see everything is changing. Relationship is the key.
You have to focus on that. If nothing is hurting you, and if you feel joy in relationship. Looking at your husband, if you get joy. Look at your wife, you get joy. Look at your parents, you get joy. Relationship must give you joy. That means you are getting transformed. Otherwise you're stuck somewhere.
So work on relationships and you could take the help of the divine for that too. And that's where you have to measure yourself."
