Robert Adams: T-57, "You Have to Have Bhakti" :
S: Robert, I want to ask you a question. Is it possible to realize the Self through a Jnani without a body?
S: It is?
R: Yes, it is. Because the Jnani is all-pervading. And if you focus your attention on his presence, you'll make contact, if you are sincere enough.
S: So even at a distance one could just focus on your picture for example.
R: It doesn't make any difference.
The only difference is your mind.
Your mind will tell you all sorts of stories.
But if you do not listen to your mind, then the Jnani is everywhere.
People are still getting healings from Ramana Maharshi.
And they claim that he comes into their lives and solves their problems.
For a Jnani there's no time and space.
That's been obliterated.
There is only the Self as omnipresence, so he or she is everywhere.
Of course it's up to you to exude the right energy from yourself, so you make contact.
It's just like grace.
Gods grace is everywhere, but it's up to you to make contact with it.
And of course the easiest way is through devotion, through love.
