Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: NIMIT - INSTRUMENT OF THE DIVINE

Click on the button Bookmark and Share to share Sri Sri's divine knowledge topics.

Sri Sri: When you are neither clear nor confused, only then can you be a perfect
instrument of the Divine! How would an instrument know what is going to be, and
when? How can an instrument be confused, and how can an instrument be clear!

This state is called Nimit - just being an instrument of the Divine. Being very
clear means not opening to new possibilities and can lead to limitations.
Unlimited possibilities are open to one who is not clear and not confused.

Your mind swings from clarity to confusion and confusion to clarity but the
state in which there is no doership nor inertia is the most creative and
progressive state.

Sharmila: Will this not lead to lethargy?

Sri Sri: No. A sharp instrument does its job perfectly, effortlessly.

Sharmila: What about focus?

Sri Sri: Focus is natural to a dynamic consciousness.

Confusion arises when new information flows in and clarity is lost. Then
confusion again seeks clarity. Clarity constricts the possibility of new
information. A confused consciousness seeks clarity and every confusion is
breaking away from clarity.

If there is only confusion, there is frustration. If there is only clarity,
there is rigidity.

After giving contradictory knowledge, Krishna tells Arjuna, "Just be Nimit!" And
to be an instrument, the prerequisite is to be madly in love! That's why in love
there is neither confusion nor clarity; or there is both - confusion and

Nazreen: Is truth more important than love?

Sri Sri: I'm confused! Is it clear? (laughter)
