Question: Sir, does character play any role in awakening of inner potential?
Answer: Is character about sticking to certain norms of behaviour? Is character about following the patterns of society or religion? Then character is just dead conditioning. Your reaction, behaviour, and life will be predictable, like a puppet-show.
Rather, character is a throbbing vital expression of great intelligence. It is the manifestation of the life within. It is not a routine, and it cannot be pre-determined. Character is thought and action arising spontaneously and straight out of understanding.
When you act fearlessly in awareness, that is real character.
Character does not awaken intelligence. Instead, character is the dance of intelligence. It does not conform to expectations, and it does not arise from the flow of the past. Hence, you cannot label it and you also cannot judge or measure it.
You can only live it.
