Why people are not receptive to the “new” consciousness?

 

 

Tom: What you’ve said makes so much sense to me. Why are some people not receptive to your ideas?

 

Guru: Yes, it’s puzzling.

 

Tom: That’s right. This is the puzzle. Why aren’t they receptive to your ideas?

 

Guru: Old consciousness.

 

Tom: Old what? Can you explain?

 

Guru: Okay. Let’s suppose we come into this world like an empty cup.

 

Tom: So we’re empty.

 

Guru: As we go through life, our cup is being filled.

 

Tom: So we’re getting filled.

 

Guru: After many years, our cup is full.

 

Tom: So we’re full.

 

Guru: What happens when the cup is full, and we continue to fill it with water?

 

Tom: The water will overflow.

 

Guru: Will the ‘new’ water go into the cup?

 

Tom: How can the ‘new’ water go into the cup? It is already full of ‘old’ water!

 

Guru: Is it any use to continue to pour ‘new’ water into the cup?

 

Tom: No, it’s useless.

 

Guru: So how can we fill the cup with ‘new’ water?

 

Tom: We need to throw away the ‘old’ water.

 

Guru: Exactly. So how can people be receptive to the ‘new’ consciousness?

 

Tom: They need to throw away the ‘old’ consciousness.

 

Guru: Will this be a problem?

 

Tom: It’ll be a problem to some because they’ve taught the ‘old’ consciousness for thousands of years.

 

Guru: Has the ‘old’ consciousness brought peace to Earth?

 

Tom: No peace on Earth. There’s only violence.      

 

Guru: So, is the ‘old’ consciousness working?

 

Tom: Certainly not!

 

Guru: Well, then it’s time to empty our cup and fill it with something new.

 

Tom: Like the ‘new’ consciousness?

 

Guru: Like the ‘new’ consciousness.
