When for the first time there is a breakthrough, you start feeling alive. Suddenly you cannot even believe how you were missing it before. It is as if a dream has broken, as if you were under a spell, a hypnotic spell, and it has broken, and suddenly one comes out of the drunk state. It has been good. Now continue something of it.
Should I use the technique of tiredness, as we did in the group, in my day-to-day life? I found that aspect of the group helpful.
It can be helpful, but don’t do it too long, because anything done too long will not be of any help – it will become a daily routine.
So once a while you can do it. Once in a while for three days and nights, remain awake, don’t go to sleep. Three days will do – it will release enough energy. Then forget about it, otherwise it can be dangerous. It can destroy the body and the subtle nervous system, it is not good then.
Fasting and night vigilance are the same. A few religions have used fasting, a few religions have used vigilance in the night, Sufis particularly.
You can do it, but every night it is not good.
