Question: What will it be like when divinity is more manifested?Sri Chinmoy: Treachery will go away, first of all. Then, people will think more of one another and less of themselves, as a spiritual Master does. I can meditate all the time for myself, but I don’t do that. Instead, I concentrate on my disciples; I help them. I help those who want and need my light. In this way I serve them and I get joy. As long as I am of service, I am fulfilling my role on earth. But right now it is not like that with everybody. When divinity is more manifested, one will offer oneself more for the cause of others than for oneself. Now you will say, “If one is not realised, how can he help others?” You can help, according to your own achievement. Always we have to be of service to those who need us. When divinity is more manifested, each one will offer himself to the service of mankind, and each one will have something to receive which he has not yet manifested.
