...Tonight we are going to discuss a special subject, my consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. and my control over my consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , which is very typical, very delightful, but delicate subjects we are going to touch.

I personally feel that we are now ready for this kind of subject and we'll go into it. And what I am going to add with it is certain practical experience which will open you up to your more dimensions.

I have to tell you one thing there is a one area where I do not agree with anybody and that is very painful to most of the spiritual teachers also. I am a very accommodating man, very loving, I can go all the way I don't care and I am very carefree man. But there is a one area where I am very uptight, that is my polarity, I am very negative, I am absolutely gross and very rigid.

You say how come? But that is truth. My flexibility, my love, my patience, my tolerance, my communication, my sacrifice must have equal balance to produce my existence.

Now if you want to understand this I am going to give my example tonight. Because let me put my skeleton before you rather than giving stories. You can imagine it imaginary or real doesn't matter, but it is just for example.

My existence is my polarity, as everybody's existence is his polarity, positive and negative, both. As I am positive, equally I am negative. If I say I am totally positive I am speaking a conscious lie, I am telling a conscious lie and I want to cover up a reality and I am putting a bait to you. I am forcing you to believe me and that is not true. Because in my consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. there is a support and support is a equal negative attitude of my life and equal positive attitude of my life. There are two balance scales which balance the very rhythm of my life. No person who has any relationship with any kind of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. should ever deny this. Now are you willing to agree or not?

Whosoever denies it cannot be a real person and shall never reach God consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . Now I will leave you to yourself and judge how many times you curtail your chances to be God consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , when you pretend you are great or you are holy and you try to shield that negative part of you, which is equally essentially as positive part of you. So long a person does not represent he as he in totality, he is a cheat of the worst type because he is a self cheat, he doesn't cheat anybody else. All sicknesses, all shallownesses, all unhappinesses, all pains, all miseries are the outcome of one source that is keeping the negativity to yourself. And presenting out the positivity it means you are presenting something which you are not, you are holding which you should not. You know how much consumption of the nervous system is consumed by this kind of behavior? Have you ever thought of it? You can't even imagine. In psychology they call it let out.

(Student's laughter)

You built in a reservoir of negativity and brick by brick you built it so heavy and there is no let out. And that let out, no let out means a stage shall come when you burst out. And you know what burst out means?

I was discussing with a very great teacher one thing.

I asked him one question, I said, "Well, jiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. I understand this knowledge and that knowledge the whole stuff, but in experience when it becomes a total knowledge of a person what a man looks like?"

He said most beautiful words, he said, "Man becomes humble enough to present his total personality before the world without fear."

Your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. is you and if you do not know that you are a balance of two polarities and you are unable to relate to two polarities you are not relating to a reality.

In India a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. came, big publicity, O God. And what he will do, he will not eat anything, you know everybody is curious, so I became a curious too. So I went and I went and namaskar him and I touched his feet and from that touch I picked up that this man does eat.

(Student's laughter)

Moment I touched his magnetic field my body immediately told me as an indicator that this man does eat and he does eat wheat.

So I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down talking with him, fantastic speaker, most balanced very rhythmical, very musical and very to the point and every words scripture like. Then I immediately picked up this man is a very ugly somewhere too. But the shield is very strong.

Why the shied is strong because behind there is something which has to be controlled. Food he doesn't take, talk is totally scripture everything is perfect.

I came back and one of my friend he asked me to discuss.

I said, "Look man he is perfect in his sadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. to control himself but I have got a one point which tells me again and again his total talk is a regiment it is like a machine. From his body when I touched his feet I felt that warmth which normally a wheat eater can have.

He said, "What else you see?"

I said, "From his talk I did not see the white arc in his auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. , it means he is a great controlled mind but he is not naturally a clean mind, so somewhere man we can study this man."

So we two decided to study this guy. Next day we went and we laid down and prostrated and said, "Well you are a God and we feel out of you and your hair give us the silk and all that stuff."

And we first practiced overnight all what we have to say.

(Student's laughter)

And he told him that, "I am the toughest guy and I don't believe in any man and I don't worship man and I am Adi Aad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. ShaktiAad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. Shakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. and bah-bah-bah-bah-bah, but I have been so enchanted. Last night yesterday evening by the darshans that whole night," actually whole night we were both practicing what to say.

(Student's laughter)

Whole night we could awake and think of, it was a truth. Whole night we were talking and think of him that is true we were thinking about him.

(Student's laughter)

So and you know people know us and bah-bah-bah the whole stuff. So we were in a position to convince him. Moment he started believing he turns to blue from orange and I gave my friend the signal that we are in him.

(Student's laughter)

Because our my friend was great, he couldn't have that sight so he told me when you feel that you are in this man give me the signal then I'll change my side.

I said, "Okay."

(Student's laughter)

So we did it, we watched him too. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down there like stiff people watching. All we want is to see you nothing else.

Now what he can say? He say get out. We were very sweet we were sweet to the extent that his personal staff were much pleased with us. After third day this guy bugged me.

He said, "Where is that wheat you were talking about?"

I said, "Look, I did not see him eating wheat, I told you that my judgment is when I touched his feet the heat I felt is from that kind of food and man wait a minute there shall be something like that."

Chau (?) the fourth day was there, so yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. raj was to take bath in milk. He took bath in milk and when he came down, I said, "Run and whatever is going out of that bathroom collect it."

He said, "What?"

I said, "What I am saying you do it."

So we picked, we said, Chirnamath you know holy man's something goes out of the feet so we collected that as a Chirnamath and we slipped, came down home, settle it down. The wheat settled down. It was wheat milk and while taking bath he must have drank few pounds of it.

(Student's laughter)

He was to do every fourth day. So why he should eat when four, five pound of pure essence what you call is wheat yeast?

Student: Wheat churn.

YB: Wheat churn, or what is that out of wheat that white thing in that...

Student: (....)

YB: That inner of it.

Student: (....)

YB: Yeah.

Student: (....)

(Student's laughter)

YB: Whatever it was, I mean to say if four five pounds of that thing goes into your body and all you need is a little thing to...

I mean whole day you can survive anybody, that is not going to be great rush. Now comes the scriptures, investigation is a deep habit sometime with some people. We started knowing what his name is, what his village is, what everything is and in about four months we found out the total reality too. So knowing all those facts one day I went to him and I asked, I said...

Now look the most beautiful part of it.

I said, "Great man, I am only interested to you for one thing to be very honest and frank with you. I know your reality as you know your reality, but my difficulty is I know little better than you know yours. All I am interested to know is in such a short time how you have controlled your mind to the activity which you present and why?"

I immediately felt his consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. was so under his control.

All he said was, "To wipeout the karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. and to free myself."

Answer was most correct.

And I said, "Can I now touch your feet for this great answer?"

He said, "Your power to touch feet is so powerful that when you touch my feet last time I knew that your hands have a type of a camera which has taken my inner sketch. I will tell you this knowledge if you exchange with thee, the knowledge which you have we can exchange. I will share my sadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. with you because you have asked me how I control my mind. I'll like to know how you knew in one minute you touched my feet the message came to me also that you have stolen away everything, which I have. I'll like to know how you got that power."

I said, "Well, it is a honest deal between the two consciousnessesConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , if you are conscious of the fact what I did to you I am conscious of the fact what you did to me and we will love to exchange it. Your greatest strength is your awarenessAwareness The pure nature of existence; the power to be consciously conscious without an object or need. A fundamental property of the soul and true self; it is Kundalini as it folds and unfolds itself in existence. that you as a you is conscious of you or not. Your total you what you present is also has a tower on which you sit as a watch over you and that is your higher consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . More you let that watchman become alert and alert and in your normal behavior if you relate to the watchman just as a practice I am going to telephone to order my food."

Hey watchman now tell me what should I eat and what shall be good for me today and the time to come? Get the answer in telephone you will always have a correct answer.

It is not imaginary the guy is there. That is unseen part of you this is seen part of you. Any person who relates to his unseen part to take a scene action gets control over the mind. Therefore, that duality which always creates doubt in you all you have to do is put that duality right there. (?) what I am supposed to do tonight.

"YogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. you are tired after teaching class get and sleep that is better, or get to a movie."

(Student's laughter)

These are two communications.

Oh no in the morning I have to get up, Jerry comes very early.

I said, "Last time I have to show up my face at least, better sleep."

(Student's laughter)

Sit down and discuss then decide.

(Student's laughter)

What is going on? A person who cannot discuss his higher self with his lower self and his lower self with higher self has a great subconscious problem. If you can put your imaginary guide there.

You know actually it is ritual that everybody has a guide and one should talk to the guide and the guide should guide you in consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. and that guidance you will lead to Infinity and all that stuff, had a absolutely correct meaning there was nothing wrong in that stuff. But the difficulty is the word guide became an imaginary genie or something a spirit. It is not some other spirit the book is right, the knowledge is right but that the fear to him is there is a some genie which lives on mount (?), what they call it, I don't get, can't pronounce that mount name?

Student: (....)

YB: Ah everybody goes there to guide his, get his guide they live in that mount, can you believe that?

In that mount those genie lives, those spirits, whatever you can call them. And they are going to get them there. This spirit in you which has an Infinity and a finite form both has to be related under that knowledge. And it is a very beautiful experiment.

You will not believe it there was a lady she was very, very sick. Everybody tried to diagnose what her sickness is, all came clear but sickness was there. After all a doctor can diagnose on certain test, A test, B C D E all that. When she gets a headache she gets a headache, when she has a breath trouble, she has a breath trouble. Sometime her body, half body will go numb it will go numb there is no answer to it. She started coming yoga classes, was very regular, no difference.

One day just to get rid of her, they said, "Well, that YogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. Baba comes go and see him."

So she came chasing around me she said, "My this problem bah-bah-bah."

I was in a hurry.

I said, "Listen you are you and you are a big you too, talk to your big you where your sick is and find your own sickness and cure it."

She said, "I'll like to discuss the detail."

I had a good student.

I said, "Why don't you sit with this student and discuss the whole thing."

That person told her everything in detail, after a month she had nothing, it surprised us. She will start having a headache, this was her information to me. And she will sit there. Now why you are giving me a headache? It is not possible what I did?

(Student's laughter)

I have all the life in me, I won't let it go. What do you mean? When she said, I do it and after five or seven minutes I'll be so relaxed and so released there was no pain at all in my body and virtually and gradually she overcame everything. She wanted to know further instructions.

I said, "But only there is a one instruction, don't tell this to anybody."

(Student's laughter)

That's the only instruction.

She said, "But it's a most beautiful thing, I want to share with everybody."

I said, "Look people will think you a witch who has control on certain spirits. God bless you, you have cured yourself and they will start chasing you and people are very dearful here they will just make all the stories about you and you will have a lot of hell around you. Better do it to yourself. There is no fun getting into superstition and nobody will understand that it was your mental conscious effort to connect with the mental unlimited infinite mind, which is there with you relating the energy. All they will feel is that superstition and all they will understand is that negativity. You know there are souls and there is a whole situation.

I said, "Why to get into that?"

If you really understand things what they mean to you then you must understand your finite self and your infinite self are two great personalities and you got to learn to relate to them.

Yesterday I had a privilege to meet a very young rabbi, beautiful man, he came with rabbi (?) who is my friend, that young boy was beautiful, I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down with him.

He asked me one question and it was a fantastic question.

He said, "(?) has told me you have got many centers and many young people follow you and you are a beautiful man."

I said, "(?) is right now what I can do for you?"

He said, "I'll like to know how is this?"

I said, "Wait, it is so simple that you can't believe it, it is not yoga I am talking about but I am telling you the great secret. You should be in your synagogue, you should talk in that synagogue about the God not about your God."

I said, "If you will talk in synagogue about the one God the whole world will be with you, but if you talk in your synagogue the God of Judaism only then God of church is not going to relate to you. And the God of temple will be very upset about it. And that is all even on this spiritual path, even on the path of our spirit.

What is a spiritual path? The path of a spirit, the very existence the satya which we never recognize, our potential which is a Infinity. And when that Infinity we relate in the finite form my dear we are in the stage of ecstasy. And I am turning my, channeling my whole negativity not to let the God become my God. All the strength of negativity, rigidity and limitlessness, limit in me in my personality is focused only on one thing it is used up there. That under no event of mistake or error or wrong conception I may let that God become my God only. And if you really understand what I am talking to you today it will take you itself into a state of ecstasy, beauty, and to the opening of the door to that great consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. of which you are a part. Study the total human misery, it has become miserable. In scientific terms, now that was a mystic term what I said. Now I am going to come to the scientific term, when this limited defined mind in functional try to relate on the functional limited level to the infinite mind the contact became weak and poor and that weakness and poverty started flowing through this channel. It is so simple. Because your God is only your God and the God is the universal God. Moment you relate to the whole universe you become whole. But if your God is in this only then you are this only. And God is not what you understand God is the totality to generate to organize and destroy. Those three letters makes the one word God.

Paramatma, after all what is this they call in Hindi, or in Sanskrit, paramatma? What is parm supreme, atmaAtma The soul or finite form of the Infinite in consciousness. It is transcendental in nature, not a product of the mind but a part of pure awareness. It is a witness of everything and can only be revealed through itself. soul, but these Indians, they called it big spirit, the great spirit, right? Paramatma. AtmaAtma The soul or finite form of the Infinite in consciousness. It is transcendental in nature, not a product of the mind but a part of pure awareness. It is a witness of everything and can only be revealed through itself. , mahatma, paramatma these are the three stages of the man in consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . AtmaAtma The soul or finite form of the Infinite in consciousness. It is transcendental in nature, not a product of the mind but a part of pure awareness. It is a witness of everything and can only be revealed through itself. the soul, mahatma the great soul, paramatma the universal soul.

Now what is a great soul? Great soul is which recognizes all other souls. Universal soul is which has a merger in every soul there is a very delicate difference.

I hate him all right I hate him. Moment I feel or say I hate him I do not recognize there is a soul in him. And moment I deny the soul in him I deny the soul in me. Then when I am a soulless creature how low and dead I am. Have I damaged him? No.

Whom I have damaged? My own consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . Mind is like a mirror through which you can see the Infinity. But if you put the blackness of hatred over it, you will see nothing and that is what we do. We don't hate people we actually weaken ourselves in other words we put a brush on our mirror of mind so that we may become without reflection, opaque, dead. And that man should learn to avoid.

Tonight we'll do certain exercises they are very simple and very special to me. I'll like you to share with me those exercises. They are mudras, seal when you issue a certificate to somebody or write a letter you issue a letter but when you seal a letter that is known as a confirmation of your factual consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. that is why you issue sealed certificates, authenticity to make it authentic.

That is why in yoga there are kriyas and there are mudras, mudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices.

More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. means the seal, the authentic essence.

I'll serve you to time you. It is not very painful later on we'll let you massage each other, don't worry. Bring your total inner strength into one pointedness of your being and contact on the gross level, physical level with the universal existence of you my love and that is real you. Nothing on this earth can debar you from your higher self, relate to it creatively and all this pain and pleasure which is happening inside you is your personal story, it is not going only to a moon, it is going to the moon and suns and stars, understand what a huge universe it is. You are making your mind capable to perceive the mind of the whole universe, for that there is no liberation which is without labor there is no freedom which is free. If you want to have a mind who(which) can cater to you, you have to go through it through all these situations, so please don't give in, don't give in an inch. Keep up and do it. It is your self exertion at this mind with the help of a relationship a union, it is a total intercourse with universal mindUniversal Mind This refers to the entire spectrum of mental existence and sentient potential in the universe in whatever form. Mind and matter are considered gradations of transcendental nature, Prakirti, and can exist without or before a particular entity to experience it. (See also chitta.) and the individual mind.

Don't worry, don't feel tired I am timing you exactly at eleven minutes you will cross we'll give you three more minutes and you will get to stop. If body doesn't cooperate tell it you got to do it. If mind is scattered, tell him guy go wherever you like I am going to relate to my higher mind I am going to do it. There is going to be a great fight between yourself and this distracting force. But I know you can come with a great success, so fight well friends and don't give in at all.

The breath should be very long, very light and very slow. If the breath can be little hard, heavy and short, pain will be tremendous. The whole key in this game is let your breath be very long, very light and very sophisticatedly slow. Don't let it become hard and heavy and short.

Four more minutes you have to just fight this war. Two more minutes.

Start moving your palms about half an inch and balance has the balance (?). Little up and down in relationship to the world alternatively.

Inhale deep, exhale, relax.

Now while doing this if you have felt tension in this area over the wrist on this area then your body clearance is not right. May you do not clear yourself correctly. If you have felt tension in this area it means stomach and digestive system is not right. If you have felt tension in this area and this area it means the arteries and the veins have lost some flexibility and if doing so you have a total tension on this area back here. It simply means your food whatever you are eating is not right. It has also an indication to the body in existence and those centers, nerve centers will come into play and give you a lot of pain and there you can use the deductive method and come to a conclusion where is what in the physical. So now just relax and just shake your belly. Shake these muscles you never get to shake them, do you know that?

Man wants to shake the whole world but doesn't want to shake his arms sometime can you believe that?

(Student's laughter)

Shake that little while.

Student: (....)

YB: Yeah, no.

Student: (....)

YB: Twist around, halla hooo.

Conversation...

It's the story of the nerves, and nerves, first of all if any nerve and the supporting nerves are not functional well in harmony this will do, that's the first reaction you see.

Student: (....)

(Student's laughter)

YB: That is where the fourth vertebrae, down much below.

Student: (....)

YB: Here?

Student: (....)

YB: Now one is (?)

Student: (....).

YB: You know one day week, stomach we rest, put the stomach in the garage.

(Student's laughter)

Normally if you have felt any tension between the eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth vertebrae you have seven vertebrae in the neck, eight is this joining point, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth. All it takes is one day a week off the food on the water, that's all.

Student: (....)

YB: Elimination is not right, eat laxative food.

Student: (....)

YB: Yeah circulation.

Student: (....)

YB: No, it is just area.

Student: (....)

YB: Your joint is hurting? Do some exercises.

(Student's laughter)

Student: (....)

YB: Yeah.

Student: (....)

YB: No, no that doesn't create imbalance but don't deny that you have also equally a strong negative force and not channeling that and denying that creates a problem.

Student: (....)

YB: No, no negative force is the most useful, positive force is useless.

(Student's laughter)

You ask me question why? It is only negative force in me which cut down my negative actions otherwise man I can go crazy, force is a force. It is channeling that force. I mean to say I understand I have got an anger and anger of a joint, right, there is no fun, it's a big anger. Then get angry on you when you become egocentric. I have a perfect greed, all I want is to be a universal man and never get to my individual level come what may, that's the greatest greed I have got. I don't care for anything else I have got a great attachment that I should not fail in my compassion may fail in my life I don't care. You got to channel this, you can't get out of it it's an absolutely wrong teaching when somebody tells you get out of greed, impossible. You have an earth as a element in your body how can you get out of greed? Channel it, be greedy and so greedy that you get to get God nothing less than that.

(Student's laughter)

If you get to get few dollars what is going to happen to you? Nothing, you are not going to take anything with you.

My weakness in me that I cannot overcome the cavities of other people. Just (?) discuss yourself in few minutes you are gone and you can put up a telephone, ring him up and you can be more sweet to him then you can ever be. It is so simple.
