"At bed time, feeling the presence of God, repent for the wrongs committed. Beg forgiveness in a supplicant mood, resolving not to allow the repetition of the same."
Human perfection lies in realising Master as one's own Master, and oneself as His devotee, and being busy doing His service. By doing so, you have as though created a state of Negation in yourself, and due to which His look is directly falling on you. That is, the attention of Master has turned sufficiently towards you, and you have established some kind of relationship with Him. When this is the state, it becomes incumbent upon us to go on discharging our duties in the same manner, and to continuously maintain that relationship so that the greatness of Master may go on being impressed on us, and His look may continue to directly fall upon us always. A devotee is concerned only with Master, keeping the thought towards Him somehow, and nearness being kept up. Now etiquette takes a different turn. When he have taken Him as Master, we must place before Him, as a wrong doer, every error as it is, which is committed by mistake, and which is against commandments. Our helplessness is proved by doing so, and Master too thinks that the mistake which a devotee has committed is really pardonable because he has placed it before Master due to the thought of helplessness being present in his heart. There is such sweetness and softness in this intent that it cannot be rendered in words. This sweetness takes up another aspect and gives a conviction of helplessness. It means that the things which were obstructing him have now been removed away; the burden which was upon him has now gone away, and its form is now of complete Purity which is similar to that Current of Nature which is free from the layers of impurities (mal), distortions (vikshep), and coverings (avaran) on it. That is, we have brought that in the pure form by developing the relationship of devotion. Now, this brings in the feeling of simplicity which is the very soul of Nature. Growing further, this condition develops to such an extent that we begin to feel ourselves enveloped in that only; that is, our condition all over becomes the same which we have to attain. The mistakes, from which a devotee can never be free, having entered this sphere, remain in such a way, as to become lifeless. It is probable that big blunders might have been committed before establishing this relationship, but then they go on diminishing by and by, till finally their forms begin to fade away. Or else, it can be said that we have applied the impulse of our will-force in it sufficiently, and its form is now changed to that of a kind of repentance. Repentance is nothing but a beat which is created in that wave, and a wave begins to flow to maintain its uniformity with the above. In other words, another thing comes and cleans up this thing which I have denoted by the word 'beat'. This is the form of repentance.
To create the condition which I have denoted as helplessness, is called meekness, and to the share of whomsoever it came, he has really achieved all and everything. There is a state of innocence in it though it may not appear so outwardly. When this is the case, that mistake does not continue to remain really a mistake because this condition has washed it out entirely. Now, a part of devotion comes wherein we have to make ourselves so careful that we may not commit the mistake again. And its form can be only such that we repeatedly turn to the presence of Master. With this, He may bestow upon us the state of contentment so as not to repeat that mistake. Since we have entered into that sphere in the position of a devotee, it becomes incumbent upon us to discharge similar duties, and try and keep in mind that we should remain away from that which is prohibited by Divine law. This becomes easy by minimising the distance which we have been maintaining all along between a devotee and Master. Hence, the best method would be to feel His presence mentally.
It is considered better to do it at bed-time because we are then free from all works and nothing remains to be done except to rest. In other words, rest and repose alone remain in the view of a person and he finds himself free from every work. It means, he finds himself freed to some extent. This freedom too is called a state of contentment of Nature. It means you have attained oneness with some part of Nature, and therefore, we will have greater power to do this work at that time. This is the reason why there is a greater effect in the Prayer at that time, and all the actions done accordingly are well adjusted. We must make the best use of this time, and must compulsorily do the work which is to be done at that time.
