Some people have a habit of thinking that spiritual life is such that you hang by the shoestrings somewhere in the air with no connection to the day-to-day life. So many people think like that. They say, “Such a man should be a thin, miserable creature hanging onto some tree or something and should be absolutely in a paranoid state….” These absurd ideas should be given up by Sahaja Yogis. You have to be very much there, absolutely there between all of them. But some think you should be rare, a different type, a unique personality. You are to be there with all these things that are going on.
