The materialistic life, unless and until there is the foundation of the spiritual life, takes you to a very partial development. But to get a full development, you must have your foundation on spirituality. That is why spirituality, being the foundation, has to be deep, has to be fully equipped, has to be absolutely perfect. Then the whole building can be built. It has gone wrong in the West. It doesn’t matter. Now you can build it up and then you will be surprised how you will become really solid people…. You must know that beyond thought when you go, these chakras become extremely efficient because the thought puts a pressure on them and because of the pressure the movement of these charkas is very slow and ineffective. But once you can get out of your thoughts and go into thoughtless awareness, then these chakras start working it out and you start moving much deeper into your own being. (17 December 1990)
