in everyone, no matter who it is, has the same power . But the
effect of this aspiration is different. For aspiration is aspiration:
if you have aspiration, in itself it has a power. Only, this aspiration
calls down an answer, and this answer, the effect, which is the
result of the aspiration, depends upon each one, for it depends
upon his receptivity. I know many people of this kind: they say, "Oh!
but I aspire all the time and still I receive nothing. " It
is impossible that they should receive nothing, in the sense that
the answer is sure to come. But it is they who do not receive.
The answer comes but they are not receptive, so they receive nothing. When
you have an aspiration, a very active aspiration, your aspiration
is going to do its work. It is going to call down the answer to
what you aspire for. But if, later, you begin to think of something
else or are not attentive or receptive, you do not even notice
that your aspiration has received an answer. This happens very
frequently. So people tell you: "I aspire and I don't receive
anything, I get no answer!" Yes, you do have an answer but
you are not aware of it, because you continue to be active in this
way, like a mill turning all the time.
