The Gift of Time

Mental Preparation for 2019

from a talk given in Tahiti, 29 December 2018

There are two perspectives on time.  One is the commonly known time of yesterday, today and tomorrow.  In Hindi the same word is used for yesterday and for tomorrow.  It is the same word for death also: Kāl.  For death we also say someone’s time has come.  The Tahitian word is tau, and this word refers to far distant time in both the future and the past.  This expresses the sense of time as a whole cycle where the future and the past meet and become one.

Time is a rotating phenomenon and in spiritual practice we rotate the cycle of time in the mind.  Life occurs in cycles.  Regular human experience is lived through the annual cycle of the seasons, religious and cultural festivals.  The diurnal 24 hour cycle is said to be the foundation of our life.  The way we use a day corresponds to the way we use our entire life, so each day has great importance. As we enter 2019, many of us never thought we would reach this far.  I began Raja Yoga ppractice in 1974 and at that time we were told there is very little time.  We are still hearing there is very little time.  This is because time is passing extremely fast.  One month for me here in Tahiti has passed like an arrow.

We are taking up the subject of the gift of time.  To say that God gives us the gift of time also means God gives us the gift of our life.  Our life is our time.  We do not know the date of our death.  Generally we think it is not quite yet.  We still have some time.  There are people who have terminal diseases and their doctor may give a prognosis: “You have six months, one month or two years.”  Then we think that is not enough.  I need more time.  What do we wish to do with our time.  What takes a lot of our time?

In spiritual practice we need time to develop our level of meditation.  In the beginning we may meditate for about five or ten minutes at a time, and then build up the amount of time to stay concentrated in meditation, gradually raising the level of consciousness to a higher dimension.

Time is the past, the present and the future.  Space is the material world, beyond which there are the subtle region and the incorporeal world.  We need time to stabise consciousness in the incorporeal world, a dimension where there is no time.  For many, it is hard to conceptualise existence in a timeless dimension.  Three million years or three seconds is the same in that dimension.  You are not in the body.  It is a gift to be in this body.  In Raja Yoga we learn that we have taken many lives.  It is said that a lot of time has passed by and very little time remains.   Very little time until when?  Roman Catholicism says very little time remains until the end of time.  The meaning of the end of time is the beginning of another time.

We are at the Confluence Age between the time cycles.  Baba tells us this life has been given to us specially because this is the only life when we can create a fortune which will endure for the next 21 lives.  In addition God gives us whatever we need for the next 5000 years.  It is only at this time of the Confluence Age when we have access to the entire past, to the fullness of each moment of the present, and all of the future.  He also teaches us the philosophy of karma.

To understand the philosophy of karma we must be aware of both time and space.  Karma occurs in both dimensions of time and space.  In the incorporeal world there is nether time nor space.  This reminds me of the Christian saying: “How many angels can stand on the head of a pin?”  How should one live in a state where there is no space?  How much space does a soul occupy?  None.  If you dig deep into someone’s head you would not find a space where the soul sits, or any small alcove.  The soul is beyond space.  It is within time as well as beyond time.

For us to understand time well.  Baba gives us the positioning to be able to place ourselves outside time.  The way to position yourself out of time is to rotate the cycle of time in your mind.  The cycle of 5000 years is also called the swastika.  The swastika is a symbol that represents self-awareness, or realization of the self.  Whatever is within the soul gets expressed through action when one is in a body on earth in the dimensions of time and space.

Time is a treasure.  It is also said that breath is a treasure.  In India it is said that you have a fixed number of breaths; that means for how much time you will be able to breathe.  Respiration is called prana in India.  Prana is also a word for life.  Breath is a vital sign.  When a person is no longer breathing, it means they are dead.  You cannot go inside a check whether the soul is still present in the body, so you have to check for signs of life.

Many people practice pranayama, breath control; but this practice does not lead to control of your life, or of your karma.  If you do not learn to control your karma, you will perform negative karma for which you will have to pay.  I am sure you do not wish to allocate time to enter into karmic accounts and then settle them all.

The gift of time is also the gift of a period for achieving your education.  God is the supreme teacher.  We are his students.  We are also His children because He wants to give us His inheritance.  What is the property of God?  Aside from the universe, the treasure of love; not only life, but the energy to make our life function well.  We need the energy  of the spirit, also called inner power.  We need to use our time to establish contact with God to absorb that energy, then use that energy to perform profitable karma.

Baba teaches us to achieve control over time and the result is to gain the kingdom.  It is not a kingdom up above, but down here on earth.  Self-sovereignty means independence.  We do not have time to be dependent on anyone.  We do not depend on anyone for our needs because they are fulfilled by our relationship with God.  Who gives us food?  Why do we offer our food to God?  It is to affirm that we understand that we are nourished by the Almighty.  Who gave us our talents through which we are able to work and earn our living?  Our talents and capabilities are also gifts from God.  Everything that we have originates from that source.  If we waste this, we are wasting our time and energy; consequently, our fortune would be less that it could have been.

So God says, I give you time, I give you life, I give you an education, I give you peace, so use these riches.  He also says something very interesting.  He gives himself to us and he says, “Use Me.”  What does God mean when He says “Use Me.”  He is always with us.  He helps us and reminds us He is always there for us.  Even if we forget Him, He does not forget us.  To use God means to understand that I am here to participate in accomplishing the task of God. The task of God is to establish paradise on earth.   Even if Tahiti seems to be paradise already, there are still some problems here and there.  Establishing paradise on earth means everything has to be in harmony; human beings, animals, fishes, the elements of matter.  This harmonization process begins with the individual human being.   It is a matter of how we use our time, breath and thought.

Thought is the foundation of everything.  From where do thoughts  arise?  Why do certain thoughts arise? Thoughts arise from perception.  We perceive events, people, places and things from the outside through our sense organs, or from the interior through our memories.  Ancient memories also arise from our subconscious mind, which can be from ancient life times.  The work of the mind is to create internal films.  We also have will power, the power of the intellect and of conscience.  With these powers we discriminate which films we will keep and which ones we will throw out or erase.  To use time well means to perform the triage of thoughts.  It does not matter whether the thought is good or bad, what matters is whether we hold on to it or we let it go.  Indeed it is like cooking.  We are continuously preparing food for thought, for consideration, pondering and digesting.

All these little thoughts are the precursors of our great actions.   Everything begins with a thought.  How long is the duration of a thought?  A fraction of a second.  Some psychologists say you have 30,000 or 40,000 thoughts per day.  No one can calculate how many thoughts we produce.

Meditation slows down the rate of production of thoughts.  Negative thoughts move fast, chaotically and repetitively.  Ordinary thoughts move at a reasonable rate with reasonable clarity.  While thoughts that are deep, true and richly significant move perhaps at a rate of one or two per minute.  It is a great accomplishment to slow your thoughts down to that rate.  With that, you enter into a zone of silence that resonates with the meaning of that single potent thought.  Baba tells us to create a collection of powerful thoughts.  These are thoughts that remain true under any circumstances.  I found one that fulfils all the criteria.  It is “I am light,”   Whether it is day or night, whether I am in a body or not, I am light remains true.  Whether I am in good or bad health, in a good or bad mood, it remains true that I am light.  Whether people are good or bad to me, whether I am in prison or in the process of getting assassinated, I am still light.  These thoughts are more powerful than circumstances.  Therefore they can change circumstances.

Baba has told us that time is the duration of the three dimensional holographic film of human life that persists for 5000 years.  He has said that time is your creation.  You are the masters over time.  The gift of time means that he has given us the power to understand everything in creation.  The creator has introduced Himself to us, and creation is everything that happens in the cycle of 5000 years.  We take possession of everything from paradise to hell and whatever lies in between these two extremities.  He gives us the treasure of time and teaches us how to rotate time.  This means we can position ourselves outside of time, or beyond time.  That also means beyond death.  You become immortal.  In the Gita it says that if you can understand these truths you are ready for immortality.

You have to be outside time in order to look at time.  Ordinarily we are within time.  We are squeezed between the past and the future.  The present moment lasts for one second.  One interesting practice is to let go of each second as each one passes by.  Second by second, let go of everything of that second.  Be present for the next second and let that go in a second.  This is the practice for the last second, the last breath, so that we can let go of our body in a second at the second when our time has come, or our time is up.  Live one second fully then let it go.  Next second, then let it go.  At the time of certain seconds we are required to act.  At other seconds we are required to be the detached observer.  We must capture the requirements of each second at the second that they arise.  This is called fast effort.  To be the witness and simply watch what is happening in front of us, we must be the possessors of time.

The word Swadarshanchakradhari means not only to spin the cycle of self realisation, but to be in full possession of the cycle in which you can see who you are.  When all the elements are rotating at full speed, it becomes a clear mirror in which you can see who you are.  It gives you a vision of the self.  In that vision you can see yourself and all the changes that have occurred from your moment of perfect beginning until your completely deconstructed and chaotic, corrupted self which is the opposite of your true self.  In other words your false ego.

Time also means change.  You have a vision of all the changes that you pass through.  It resembles the little cartoon book of papers that you flip to see all the changes and you see the movement, although each picture is static.  This was the first form of animation.

In China there is the I Ching authored by Confucius.  Using the process of change of two sets of trigrams, he calculated 64,000 possible changes of circumstances.  Each change corresponds to a certain influence, which also corresponds to karma.  There is a calculable change of frequency and vibration represented by each change, and the nature of the process of change.  This also corresponds to conception, birth, growth, decline and death followed by resurrection.  It is the flow of harmony from harmonic to dissonant, true to false, and a return to the original position.

In Astrology there is a cycle of 28,000 years of the procession of the stars, all the changes in the sky are a celestial reflection of whatever is happening among the stars of the earth, the souls.  Karma means movement, and movement means change.  Everything moves through a complete set of changes until it reaches the original position, or point of departure, then it would be said to have gone full circle.

Meditation is the same thing.  You take up a point of God’s knowledge and ponder upon it going through all the different manifestations of thoughts and ideas that pertain to that theme until you have gone full circle.  At that point you would say your meditation is complete and you would experience satisfaction that you have thought all the way through that idea.  Then you would say you know that piece of information, from the initial point through the full expansion and back again, ending up and the point of departure.

Baba has enabled us to comprehend the identical repetition of time.  This is possible because He places us outside or beyond time.  Through this He also places us outside space.  This gives us a birds eye view of what takes place on earth in terms of the complete history and geography of the earth in one shot.

A question was asked: how does Baba place us outside time?  Baba has said time is a rotating phenomenon.  Everything that occurs during 5000 years is predestined.  He knows it all in advance. He recounts the story to us in a general way.  He says you began at the Confluence Age, where the end and the beginning come together.  When both the end and the beginning touch each other, this is called the beginning.  It is the end also.  Any clock also shows time as a continuing rotation.  It takes 5000 years for all things to pass from the extreme state of paradise to the extreme state of hell.  Everything in between includes all the necessary events that describe the change required to transform heaven into hell.  This change is referred to as the decline from Satopradhan to Sato, to Rajo, to Tamo, to Tamopradhan.  It is the deterioration of the quality of matter and spirit from completely perfect to completely corrupt.

It changes from completely pure, harmonious through very slow but exponentially accelerating deterioration, until it is old, corrupt and rotten.   Finally there is an intervention of God who brings everything back to its original condition through injecting his power into those souls who take up the possibility of absorbing it and enabling it to pass through them.  The confluence of the end and the beginning is completely out of balance, extremely turbulent and cataclysmic.  God brings this chaos into order.  Then everything functions harmoniously; the climate, human relationships, governance, nature, agriculture, etc.

It is a question of rotating the cycle of 5000 years until it becomes a vortex.  This spinning moves so fast that you can step back mentally from the individual changes, and see the whole.  You detach from human cultures.  This is the perspective of God on the creation, which He can see from a far distance.  He knows everything, He knows the whole process and sees all things at one time.

He knows exactly who is who.  He knows who has done what, who will do what.  He knows the story and the personality of each one.  These are all characters in the great drama of human civilization.  He knows it all and this is why we say God is omniscient.  We do not remember what we did 400 years ago, or three thousand years ago.  This is a safety device of forgetfulness.  If you knew everything about yourself at all times, you could not endure your existence.  The huge gap between your perfection and your imperfection is too much for an individual to bear.  The greatness is too great and the fall is too far.  Gradually Baba makes us able to conceptualise, to accept and to bear this vast chasm between our origins and our end.  So that we can again bridge that gap and cross over, returning to our original condition.  This is accomplished through high speed rotation of the cycle in the mind.

It is only at the confluence between alpha and omega that God gives us the full information as it is the only time we can bear to hear it.  We have already hit bottom, there is no further down to go, and from here onwards there is the rising, the evolving of the soul to its peak of perfection.  He tells us this period of the confluence is very short.

This is the only time when you can create your fortune for a long time.  The impact of your activities and relationship with God last for the entire cycle to come.  So this is a very important time.  Any action performed at any other time period will have an impact on the life that follows that one, but not on your entire series of lives.  Normally, you do a little charity and receive a little fortune for one life.  However, whatever we do now has an impact for 21 lives, and there is an effect for the entire cycle of 84 lives.

This is not just an accumulation of savings, but it is a lottery.  Often God tells us that He has given us a lottery, or that we have won a lottery.  Whoever knows how to use this knowledge for his own profit and benefit as well as to benefit others, receives an incalculable return.  A lottery is different from a savings scheme.  You buy a ticket for 100 and you receive a prize of multi-millions.  It is a really good deal.  But this is so unbelievable that very few take it seriously.  This is why you receive such a great amount.  If many would understand the deal they would take it up, and consequently you would have relatively less.  What is the percentage of people from Tahiti here in this room?  Relative to the population of Tahiti it is a tiny fraction.

What price do we pay for this great fortune?  It is to use your time, breath and thought well.  Thought is the foundation of everything.  Through wasting thought, you waste your time.  This is also the same as wasting your breath.  The cost is to be disciplined in your life.  Our great problem is laziness.  We must be disciplined but not force ourselves and go out of balance.  Everything needs to remain in balance.  If we sprint we can run 100, 200 or 400 meters, but a marathon is 42 kilometres.  Spiritual practice is a marathon.  We have to be in for the long haul, so we must move at a speed which can be sustained until the end.  And our run is much further than 42 kilometres.  It is longer than 42 years.  This is reminiscent of the story of the hare and the tortoise.  This is our story.  To maintain a speed that can be kept up for years is to understand time.

It is important to practice rotating the cycle of 5000 years.  This action functions like a helicopter with rotary wings.  By rotating the wings you get lift.  The small rotor at the back is also required in order to provide direction.  Rotating the cycle means to create a vortex.  You know that a hurricane is also a vortex.  In the centre of the vortex it is completely calm and quiet.

The state of the world is increasing chaotic.  The practice of rotating the cycle is an instrument to remain in a state of total calm within chaotic situations.  Chaos is whirling all around us but we are in the centre of calm with our attention focussed above.  We are quietly in the middle knowing what is going to happen.  Others keep asking what is going to happen, but we know very well what is going to happen.  Circumstances will spin to the maximum extent then they will go to their opposite.

A law of spirituality is that once circumstances reach their ultimate extreme, everything changes and becomes something else.  Often we find ourselves in circumstances and we say “for how much longer will this go on?”  Spiritual law says it will continue until it is over.  When it’s over, it’s over.  What do we need?  Patience.

In the context of the 5000 year cycle, the life expectancy at the beginning of the cycle is average 150 years.  We remain physically and mentally in good condition for the first few lives.  In general these are beautiful lives for all, there are no illnesses, no hardships, population is small, there is prosperity.  As time goes on life expectancy diminishes until it can be a low as an average of 30 or 40 years.  There are infant mortality, accidents, diseases etc. which cut short a person’s life unexpectedly.  Many experience financial difficulty and even abject poverty.  Thus the knowledge of the cycle tells us that there is not progress, but devolution.  All the evolution occurs during the short period of the confluence age.  This time between the end and the new beginning is the time when we can know these things.  They remain unknown to us at all other times periods in the cycle.  During decline it is unbearable for a soul to know that they will simply continue to decline until they reach bottom, until they reach hell.  This is neither interesting nor attractive.

Obviously we are experiencing an exponential growth and development of technological progress.  It is interesting to note that this corresponds to the historical period that we call the Confluence Age.  Technical progress is visible and tangible to all, whereas the spiritual progress that we experience is incognito.  Those who are not studying and meditating as we are, will surely be declining rapidly.  Clearly, the quality of matter is in decline due to entropy.  Climate change is a consequence of disequilibrium in the natural cycles of air, water and earth.  There is both a human factor as well as factors beyond human influence such as sun spot activity, and switches in the magnetic orientation of the northern and southern hemispheres.

During this Confluence Age time period there are two very powerful energies in conflict with each other.  One is the energy of exponential decline and collapse of the world as we know it, which we call the tamopradhan stage.  The other is the intensely powerful energy of the Creator.  Science and technology have two important tasks to accomplish.  One is the technology of Artificial Intelligence, Internet, information technology, etc. for communications, media and umpteen applications.  The other is applying the same technology for weapons and the supporting military requirements.

Civilisation in the coming era will be extremely high tech.   The people at that time are more than intelligent, they use telepathy for communications, therefore they have no need for mobile phones etc.  They are also able to guide and control the extremely high tech machines using just their minds.   Transportation is not by cars and wheel based vehicles, but airplanes, individual and small size airplanes powered by clean nuclear energy, cold fusion most probably.  All the technology to be used in the coming era has to be invented at this time.  There is a need for extremely high tech weapons of mass destruction at this time also.  Technology is neutral like a knife.  You can stab a person’s body and kill them or you can cut fruits and vegetables with the same knife.  It depends on the person using it.  In the same way technology can be used in many ways depending on the person in possession of that technology.  The spiritual quality and integrity of the people of the future is such that they would support their civilization with excellent application of technology that is friendly to both the environment and humanity.   At this time technology is often applied from the angle of greed, fear, etc.

We are currently in between these two opposing forces which are in an extreme form at this time.  Baba is telling us to use the yantra.  You are familiar with the word mantraYantra means instrument.  There are sacred instruments.  Rotation of the cycle is a sacred instrument.  It enables you to remain in a state of calm in circumstances of total chaos.  Secondly it enables you to go beyond all things and watch what is going on from a far distance without getting distressed by perceived events.

We know we are eternal souls.  We know we have to pass through the total transformation of the world.  We know how to pass through this while remaining detached.  We are not afraid of death.  Neither of our own or that of others who are also eternal souls.  We have an overview of the future.  The main challenge is to pass through this period of destruction.  It is also a challenge to take full advantage of the confluence age and take benefit of the lottery that has been given to us.   We must make our lives successful and inspire others to do likewise.  All this is included in the gift of time.

God has given us time.  When we have control of time,  including the time for thought, it is said such a one is a sovereign.  When you control time it means you have become a master.  God says, I have come, I have opened a school.  If you wish to become masters, then come and learn.  I will teach you the most interesting matters and you will use it as you wish.  However the condition is to remain pure.  If a person does not remain pure, they are unable to absorb this information into their minds or intellects.  It is a protection.

Where did Christ and Buddha learn to become masters?  It had to have been during this period of the confluence age, and they had to have studied with God.  They are historical people dating from 2000 or 2500 years ago.  They subsequently reincarnated.  Even you do not know who you are, or who you were.  But God knows who we are, and who we were.  He says, come, you need this knowledge, I know who you are and you do not know who you are.   You need this because you need to raise your level of consciousness.  You have a role to play.  But we don’t know who we are.  Gradually he tells us: you were kings of ancient times.  You had once been great Gurus.  You had once been great military generals, great scholars,  And now you are completely ordinary people.

However within us are a few discernible signs.  One is great love for God.  Another is great love for humanity, and for the earth itself.  People with these characteristics must have been someone great in earlier times.    At this time most people are egoistic, and do not care much about others.  Baba knows who we are, and what we had done, and what we have become now.  He knows what is our potential.  Even if we fall to the lowest human level, our original identity persists.  Whatever we did subsequently does not change our original identity.  When we hear the teachings of Baba, our ancient identity re-awakens.  We begin to understand what he is telling us and to use the tools he is providing to us.  They work, and we are able to be connected with God.  We are able to stop our vices.  Vices cannot be overcome without the direct power of God.  It is an energy that purifies.

You say, I need a cigarette,  Why?  To handle your feelings.  Otherwise you don’t need any tobacco.  Or you say, I need a Whiskey, Why?  Because you are not doing well and you need something to calm you.  You need a drug.  You need a fix of Heroin, Why?  Because you need to feel good.  But these substances weaken us a great deal.  The relief is very temporary and will power is greatly weakened by drug use.  If you take power from Baba, then it restores you to your full power and gives you the possibility to handle your feelings.  This is called inner power.  Otherwise you are internally feeble.

Many people call out to God asking him to give them strength.  He says “OK, here, use me.  He says, I have many treasures, I have love, peace, power, I can purify you.  Use me.”  So then we say OK and we start to take power from Baba.  And we see that is works.

Then he says:  “Well, I will give you tests.  I will send you Maya.”  We say: “OK no problem.”  “I will put you into insanity and make you crazy.”  We say, “OK it’s alright.  We can handle it.”  He says, “I will put you in bad situations and vibrations. Everyone will be against you.”  We say “OK its alright.”  All this is the gift of time.

Within this treasure of time are many other treasures.  What is time.  It is events which have a certain duration and which occur somewhere.  That is time.  Otherwise time is just an idea.  But the reality of time and space is: events which have a certain duration and which occur somewhere.  All this is the theatre of events, people, activities and incidents.  These can all be positioned on a circle of time like the reel of a film.  In former times, films were on 35 millimetre plastic film.  You would keep reels of 2 hours in circular cans which were about 2 inches thick and about 10 inches wide.  I used to work in Television News many years ago.  We filmed the news items in 16 millimetre film, we cut the films with razor blades and sent the cans by airplane to reach Canada in time for the 10 pm news.  Now everything is sent by internet and takes a few seconds or minutes to upload.  Now you can store so much media in a tiny chip that can hold hundreds of gigabytes.  It is easy to project that the entire number of lives over a span of 5000 years of an individual can be contained in a tiny point of light.  It is not much of a leap of understanding to arrive at that awareness.

Baba is teaching us such a technology that you can understand all your lives.  What do we want to know?  We want to know who we are.  Not who I am now, not who I am going to become, but who I am in total.  Karma is about cause and effect.  The first cause is also the last effect so it is a closed circle.  That means it repeats identically.  There is the history of the world in general.  There is the history of the very important souls like Adam and Eve and Krishna, Jesus Christ, Buddha, Mohammed.  These are important people.  Their biographies are important for everyone.  Your story is important for you.  It does not necessarily mean much for others, but it is important to you.  He gives the template that shows how it works.  He says, “go into your soul.   Research and you will find out who you are.   Become once again who you are.”

There are three stages.   Your original stage, your eternal stage and your final stage.  All three are the same.  What we are eternally in the soul world is our potential.  What we were when we first arrived on earth was our maximum best.  And at the end when God has completed working on us we will also have the same condition.  All this is a closed circuit.  He gives us this.  This is the gift of time.  He gives us the gift of our identity, so that we can know who we are.  We have to ponder deeply, to know who we are.  We have to face various illusions about ourselves.  We have to go into silence.  This is for everyone, but not everyone will take this up.

What will we do in 2019?  There will be much turbulence, much disturbance.  Volcanos are becoming more and more active.  One third of Anuk Krakatoa fell into the ocean and created a Tsunami.   Mururoa can break very easily  It is very fragile and delicately in balance.  If it breaks then so much radio active nuclear waste escapes into the ocean.

In 2019 we need to rotate the cycle of time in our minds.  We must create a vortex and remain in the calm centre in the middle of the vortex of great turbulence of world events.  Sit in the calm with much peace and much faith.  If we hesitate, we cannot remain in calm.  There is faith that everything is ok and I am sitting in the middle of my vortex.  Et voilà.

Baba makes us go where we have to go.  Why did he call us?  We are here because something made us come here, or inspired us to come there.  Baba called us, but why?  He wants to give us something, and he wants us to do something that only we can do.  Only those people who can connect themselves directly to God can be channels through whom God can dispatch his energy throughout the world.  This is also interesting.  What should a channel do.  He has to just be there and not move around.  The water has to flow through the channel.  So just stay steady and let the water, or the energy flow.  Some rivers flow faster than others, some are more powerful than others.

What will you do in 2019?  A channel who lets the energy flow well must use his time, breath and thought to create a lot of fortune, and inspire everyone else to do likewise.  That’s it.

It is not that difficult.  The reason there are exams, or ordeals, is so that we pass them.  Exams have no other purpose than to enable us to rise to the next level.  Why does God put us through ordeals?  It is to strengthen us, and to make us experienced.  These are the two purposes of going through ordeals.  What is required in us is courage, patience, faith and confidence.  We are his children so he will take care of us.  This stands to reason.

God has no karmic accounts.  He is the creator and He knows who each person is.  He has no problems.  He is always in a state of bliss.  He has concerns because He does not like to see any one starving.  He does not like to see his children suffer.

The order of our concern has to be I first, then God, then others.  If we put the self first it means we consider ourselves responsible for our lives, and for whatever is happening to us.  He gives us these teachings.

He teaches us to take responsibility for our actions.  I am God’s child and his student.  He has raised us and educated us.  He says do not take responsibility for others. That is my responsibility.  This is my problem, not yours.  You do not have enough power to look after the rest of the world.  This is my responsibility.

Our culture teaches us to put others first and put ourselves last.  When we think about others and neglect to think abut ourselves, we find ourselves in trouble.  We get into karmic bondages.

Putting yourself first means. What time did I get up today?  That is my responsibility.  Not to be concerned about what time someone else got up.  What am I doing? Am I acting as I should?    If I act correctly then God will be pleased and others will be inspired.

In our culture, saying me first is considered a form of egoism, because it is assumed that you put your selfish desires first.  But to say I first means to take responsibility and to expect to be held accountable for what I am doing.

God is telling us that He is OK.  He says, I have no problems.  You have problems.  Most of your problems stem from not having understood that you are responsible for yourselves.  He says I will not act on your behalf.  He says I am your back bone.  I am holding you up and guiding you.  Other people are my problem not yours.  Very often when you try to take over other people, it does not work out very well.  You may well try to change other people, but it is not usually successful.  You can inspire them and be an example.

He gives us free choice.  A good choice would be to act as He teaches us to act.  Of course He is first in terms of being our source and our inspiration.  Be aware, I am responsible for everything that is happening to me.  And for everything that has happened to me.

I can say that everything that is happening and has happened to me is due to my karma, or is a consequence of my karma.  To a certain degree I am also responsible for whatever is happening to all of us.  We cannot think I am alone, I am also with others.  My attitude towards others has an effect.  What I have done, what I have been in the past few thousand years, has contributed to bring the current situation into being.  This is true particularly if you are in a position of leadership.  Some people ae more influential than others.

For example Mr Trump has a lot of influence and many people are affected by what he does.  He is also affected by having affected all those people.  That also affects the American people because he is their elected representative.  It is like the symbol of infinity.  “What goes around comes around.”

In terms of climate change.  Each person who uses plastic bags contributes to the islands of plastic debris that are to be found floating in the ocean.  It is amazing to me that the ocean has managed to tidy up the plastic debris that we wantonly throw into it into piles and thereby protect the sea life from damage to some extent.  There is a sign in a national park saying “Animals respect their environment.  Please conduct yourselves like animals while in this place.”  We must be aware of being not only responsible for what are obvious effects of our conduct, but there are many other very far reaching effects of our individual and collective actions including pollution, the government we have.  There are many things we are responsible for but over which we have no control.  For example we are responsible for the fact that we age.  We are responsible for the fact that time is passing by, everyone is becoming old and corrupt.  We are all in the same boat.  We are implicated.  When one person takes meaningful action and remains in contact with God, he or she spreads a powerful atmosphere.  The effect of this can be very far reaching.  This is why it is good to become a channel for God.

La Conscience et Le Saut Quantique

La Conscience et le Saut Quantique

Eros, Philos, Logos

Je voudrais parler de trois mots grecs très connus:  Eros, Philos, LogosEros est normalement lié à l’érotique.  J’utilise ce mot pour signifier l’attraction et l’amour pour la beauté.  La beauté du paysage, de la nature, du corps humain, de la personnalité humaine, de la littérature, de la peinture, de la musique et de la danse.  L’amour pour la beauté est une partie de notre vie extrêmement importante, il est lié au cœur.  Eros c’est aussi la beauté du foyer familial, les festivals, la vie quotidienne dans toute sa splendeur.  En Inde on parle de la beauté dangereuse lorsque la nature s’exprime à travers les volcans, les tsunamis et autres manifestations spectaculaires.

Nous percevons tout ce qui est éros à travers les organes des sens physiques.  La vue, l’ouie, l’odorat, le toucher, le goût.  Il y a aussi le plaisir dans certains mets, dans l’amour physique, dans les sports intenses… tout ce qu’on peut apprécier à travers les sens physiques se place dans la catégorie éros.  Pour beaucoup de gens, c’est ça la vie, le bonheur.

Nous nous balançons entre le bonheur et le malheur.  Il y a aussi le côté ombre d’éros.  Quand nous sommes déçus par quelque chose.  Par exemple quelqu’un meurt, nous perdons une personne, un endroit, un objet…

Philos c’est tout ce qui est lié à l’intellect.  On comprend et on joue avec les idées.  Tout ce qui est philosophie, la science, la religion…  il y a la religion dans le sens exotérique et aussi dans le sens ésotérique.  Esotérique signifie le côté mystique.  Exotérique est plutôt le côté extérieur, le chant, les rituels, les bâtiments, les institutions, les festivals.

Philos parle aussi des différents systèmes de gouvernement, s’il faut avoir un royaume avec des familles royales, et le gouvernement d’un roi, d’une reine, des princes, princesses etc…  Ou bien s’il faut la démocratie, qui est le système préféré dans le monde actuel.  Est-ce qu’il faut une dictature, une junte militaire, la tyrannie? avec quel système voulons-nous gérer notre société?  Tout cela fait partie des idées.  Dans la philosophie morale, comment sait-on si une chose est bonne ou mauvaise? correcte ou incorrecte? tout ce qui est éthique et moralité fait partie de philos.  C’est important dans la vie sociale de connaître et d’être bien connecté à nos idées afin de formuler nos valeurs.  Tout cela appartient à la catégorie philos.

Pour les gens qui vivent uniquement dans le niveau éros, ce sera un saut quantique de passer d’éros à philos.  Philos est plus subtil et il s’agit du développement de l’intellect, le pouvoir de raisonner, le raisonnement moral.  On doit faire des choix dans la vie, on doit juger qui est bon, quelle personne est fiable, comment on doit utiliser l’argent, qu’est-ce qui est un crime, qu’est-ce qui n’est pas un crime?

Beaucoup de gens restent dans éros.  D’autres vivent dans éros et philos, les deux.  D’autres personnes restent dans philos et dédaignent un peu éros.

J’ai rencontré un physicien qui avait reçu le prix Nobel pour son œuvre scientifique.  Il était très bon mathématicien mais il ne savait pas attacher ses chaussures.  Il ne savait pas gérer la vie quotidienne.  Il dépendait de sa femme et de son université pour les choses basiques.

Voyons un peu logos.  Logos est au-dessus de philos.  Logos représente l’aspect sacré de la vie humaine et le contact avec le divin.  Logos est un niveau de conscience que l’on rencontre plus rarement.  C’est plutôt reservé à la personne qui accorde de l’importance au spirituel.

Voyons si nous pouvons développer un niveau de conscience où on peut vivre sur les niveaux éros, philos et logos, les trois à la fois.  Honnêtement, quelle est la part de logos dans notre vie en général?  Puisqu’elle est insuffisante, notre vie manque d’ancrage et d’équilibre.  Il y a des énergies qui nous font descendre et qui nous empêchent de demeurer dans logos.  Elles ressemblent à un courant et on devrait nager contre ce courant.  Nous ne sommes souvent même pas conscients d’un courant qui nous emporte vers philos et éros et qui nous empêche de nous élever au niveau subtil de logos.

Je voudrais parler du mot perception.  Dans éros nous percevons la réalité physique, les gens, les endroits, les objets, à travers les organes des sens.  Dans philos, nous percevons les idées par l’intellect; nous devons aussi développer l’esprit pour entrer dans le domaine de la philosophie.  Ensuite, pour entrer dans la dimension logos qui est une perception spirituelle, il s’agit de développer l’âme elle-même afin qu’elle puisse percevoir le divin directement.

Dans la Gîta, l’écriture sainte de l’Inde, un verset dit:  Il y a des gens qui perçoivent le divin, il y en a d’autres qui déclarent qu’il existe,  et une troisième catégorie qui dit: de quoi parlez-vous?  Ceux qui sont dans logos perçoivent le divin.  Ceux qui sont dans philos acceptent que logos peut exister, alors que ceux qui sont totalement dans éros ne comprennent pas du tout ce qu’est logos.

Il y a des facultés dans l’âme.  Cependant, nous ignorons jusqu’à quel point nous pouvons développer ces facultés.  D’autre part, chacun a ses propres limites qui sont difficiles à dépasser.

N’importe qui peut commencer une étude, mais très peu atteindront l’excellence ou la virtuosité.  Très peu deviendront des maîtres, que ce soit dans la cuisine, le sport, la musique, la danse ou la médecine.    A Hollywood, on dit pour les vedettes de cinéma qu’il y a 5% de talent et 95% de travail.

Notre capacité d’effort pour élever notre niveau de conscience, pour atteindre le niveau logos, dépend de notre pouvoir de volonté.  Il est nécessaire d’y  consacrer du temps, de travailler régulièrement et intensivement, car c’est à ce moment-là que va sortir tout ce qui est caché dans l’inconscient.

Le développement de la conscience humaine ne coûte pas d’argent.  Alors on dit que c’est gratuit.  Cela ne l’est qu’au niveau de l’argent, mais il y a d’autres aspects.  Il faut consacrer de l’attention, du temps et il faut dépasser nos barrières psychologiques.  En général tout le monde a des blessures psychologiques suite à des chocs importants dans la vie.  Ces blessures ne guérissent pas toutes seules et elles produisent des blocages difficiles à dépasser.  Ces blocages se présenteront devant nous quand nous voudrons passer d’éros et philos à logos.  Il faut une honnêteté totale pour dépasser ces blocages, ce qui n’est pas très facile.   Ceux qui sont les plus blessés ont beaucoup de mal à faire face à leur histoire et ont tendance à être dans le déni.

Certains prétendent qu’ils ne sont pas blessés mais ils ont beaucoup d’arrogance.  Cette arrogance devient un mur infranchissable pour atteindre le niveau logos.  Ceci est probablement pire qu’une blessure.  Quand le cœur et l’âme sont blessés, on cherche une guérison.  Alors que la personne arrogante pense qu’elle a tout, elle ne cherche pas à être guérie de son arrogance.  Pour atteindre la guérison, je pense qu’on a plus de chance avec des blessures qu’avec l’arrogance.

Il y a différents types de blessures, l’anxiété et la peur en sont des signes.  Quand on a vécu des circonstances extrêmes, il y a toujours la possibilité que de pareilles expériences se produisent à nouveau.  C’est normal d’en avoir peur.  Devant la peur il y a deux possibilités.  L’une est le courage, l’autre est la lâcheté, en évitant de faire face au problème.

Les gens qui ont beaucoup de peurs et d’anxiété montrent souvent beaucoup de courage parce que la lâcheté n’est pas bien vue.  Quand on traverse des circonstances extrêmement difficiles on développe l’habitude de se montrer courageux.  Derrière leur masque de courage ils ont aussi de la colère, qui est un mécanisme de défense.  La colère est mal vue, la violence aussi est mal vue, alors ils transforment la violence en masque de courage, ou bien ils refoulent les émotions négatives.  Ils se trouvent dans philos mais dans une attitude de déni, et un travail psychologique est nécessaire pour se défaire de tout cela.  Ensuite on peut faire le saut quantique et traverser le plafond de verre et arriver dans le territoire très subtil et élevé de logos.

Une personne qui commence un travail spirituel a besoin d’espace et de temps pour traverser différentes étapes.  La première étape est de mettre en place certaines disciplines.  Ce sont des exercices qui renforcent le muscle de la conscience.  Dans la pratique du Raja Yoga nous commençons par certaines disciplines physiques, par exemple, si on prétend être non-violent il faut manger végétarien pour ne pas avoir à tuer avant de manger.  Les personnes qui se régalent à la pensée de leur bifteck ou leur poisson grillé ou leur volaille trouveront cette discipline dure.

Une autre discipline est de ne pas boire d’alcool.  Pourquoi? parce que l’alcool affecte la qualité de la conscience.  Il nous fait entrer dans un état altéré de conscience.  Progressivement l’alcool diminue le pouvoir de volonté de la personne.  Il crée une distorsion de la perception et diminue la capacité de gérer ses propres émotions et sentiments.  La personne connait des fluctuations dans ses comportements qui peuvent devenir difficiles à contrôler.  D’autres variétés de drogues dures comme la cocaïne, l’héroine, les opioïdes etc… produisent des effets semblables, progressivement la personne devient esclave de la substance.

La personne qui suit des disciplines se responsabilise par rapport à la gestion de ses émotions.  Quand la blessure est réveillée par une situation banale, la réaction émotionnelle est anormalement violente.  Chaque fois que la blessure qui est dans le coeur ou dans l’âme est réactivée par une provocation quelconque, la personne réagit beaucoup plus fortement que la normale.  Cela vient indiquer la nature ou l’origine de la blessure.  La réaction peut être la violence, la colère, une peur extrême, l’ incapacité à gérer ses pensées, se faire des films qui n’en finissent pas.  Viennent des doutes, des idées complètement irraisonnées, des cauchemards que la personne ne peut pas contrôler.  Des évènements comme les guerres, les calamités naturelles très sévères ou les épidémies, laissent des cicatrices traumatisantes, des barrières psychologiques qui demeurent dans l’âme jusqu’à ce qu’elles soient guéries.

Le travail psychologique consiste aussi à dépasser de nombreuses attitudes sociales de la société patriarcale qui bloquent le développement psychologique.  Un exemple est le déséquilibre entre le traitement des hommes et des femmes.  La personne qui fait son travail spirituel doit d’abord aller fouiller pour retrouver l’origine de son traumatisme qui a bloqué son développement psychologique.

Le niveau logos donne une perspective complètement différente de la vie.  On est au-delà de la moralité conventionnelle.  Tous les pouvoirs spirituels et les vertus divines sont là.  Pour demeurer dans ce niveau logos, il est important de gérer les obstacles psychologiques dès l’instant où ils se présentent.  Il y a aussi la question du karma.  La philosophie du karma est très compliquée et difficile à déchiffrer.

L’âme non-physique, spirituelle, éternelle, ou l’esprit qui anime le corps, est liée au sacré.  Le karma génère aussi des blocages entre l’âme et le divin.  Ces blocages forcent l’âme à rester dans le niveau éros; ou bien l’âme se réfugie dans l’intellectualisme pour éviter tout ce qui est connecté avec le cœur, les sentiments, la trahison, les différentes blessures.

Si on veut réaliser le saut quantique pour aller dans logos, il faut bien discerner “moi l’âme qu’est-ce que je suis en train de faire?  Quelles sont les tactiques que j’utilise pour éviter la vérité à laquelle je dois faire face, pour pouvoir traverser mes blocages?” En général la personne ne se voit pas elle-même.  Elle ne voit pas ses barricades, mais les autres les voient.  Certaines personnes les voient bien plus clairement que d’autres.

Une personne de confiance, qui a une vision claire, bienveillante, vous dira quel est votre problème.  Par exemple “Ton attitude dans les relations humaines est basée sur la peur.”  L’autre répondra “Qui, moi?”  Elle sera dans le déni, en disant “Non, j’ai du courage, je fais ceci, cela.”

La peur influence cette âme et dirige son karma, ses activités, et la persuade que son courage indique qu’elle est déjà guérie.  Elle ne s’avoue pas le fait qu’elle a fabriqué le masque de son courage pour déguiser sa peur.   Alors l’activité et la personnalité de l’âme deviennent artificielles, ce qui l’empêche de réaliser le saut quantique et d’entrer dans le niveau logos.

La personne vraie a suffisamment de clarté pour se voir réellement.  Il n’y aura pas d’hypocrisie.  Quand il y a de l’égo, soit nous pensons que nous sommes plus que ce que nous sommes, soit nous pensons l’opposé, nous nous voyons moins que ce que nous sommes.  La personne se balance entre les deux attitudes qui sont fausses toutes les deux.  La personne n’arrive pas à se voir telle qu’elle est.

Le saut quantique demande qu’on soit vrai.  La personne blessée, hypocrite, use d’artifices.  Elle devrait écouter des personnes de confiance qui parfois disent des vérités douloureuses.  Est-elle prête à écouter cela?  Si elle prend leurs mots comme une insulte, ces personnes hésiteront à lui en dire plus et se tairont.

La communication entre les gens devient de moins en moins authentique car les gens ne tolèrent pas les mots vrais qui font mal.  Leur égo est touché, il réagit et ils se défendent.  Le problème, l’artifice restent bien en place, bien ancrés.  Pour réparer tout cela il faut faire un travail psychologique.  Beaucoup pensent que c’est un travail spirituel mais non, c’est un travail psychologique.  Cela prend du temps pour terminer le travail psychologique et commencer le travail spirituel.  Il y a d’abord les disciplines, ensuite le travail psychologique qui peut durer plusieurs années.

Il est important d’avoir confiance dans les gens qui nous disent la vérité.  Ce sont nos vrais amis.  Les gens faux ne nous diront jamais la vérité.  Quand on accepte la vérité qui vient briser l’égo, cet égo, qui est la fausse identité, peut mourir, et alors peut émerger le vrai soi.  Si on veut réaliser le saut quantique pour atteindre le niveau logos, on doit dire au divin: “Envoie-moi de tels amis.”  Ou bien des circonstances se présenteront, par exemple, la maladie pourra faire le même travail.  Le malade est dépendant.  Il dépend de quelqu’un pour se laver, s’habiller etc…  l’égo préfère être auto-suffisant.  Les circonstances de dépendance servent à le briser.

Certaines âmes arrivent à développer leur côté philos.  Elles font l’analyse dédramatisée de leur situation et adoptent une attitude détachée par rapport à leurs traumatismes du passé.  Finalement commence le travail spirituel.

Notre conscience est à l’intérieur.  Cependant, l’âme croit que la réalité est tout ce qu’on perçoit à travers les organes des sens, c’est à dire l’extérieur.  Cela s’appelle la conscience du corps, la conscience de la matière.  La spiritualité nous dit de nous orienter vers la dimension de l’intérieur.  C’est un exercice qu’il faut pratiquer.  Mais 30 secondes ne suffisent pas.  Il y a toujours d’autres choses à faire, des distractions etc…  quand on est obligé de rester couché à cause d’une maladie, d’une jambe cassée, c’est une opportunité pour regarder à l’intérieur.  Même avec cela il y a des obstacles, on se plaint, on regarde la télévision, on lit des livres etc… parce que l’âme est faible et n’a pas suffisamment de pouvoir pour faire le travail nécessaire à son évolution spirituelle.  Elle manque de détermination, alors que c’est ce qui lui permettrait de dépasser le plafond de verre et d’entrer dans la dimension logos.  Cela s’appelle aussi le niveau karmateetKarmateet signifie que la personne a réglé ses comptes karmiques.

Pendant la période où nous faisons notre travail psychologique, nous avons en même temps des comptes karmiques à régler.  Cela peut prendre la forme de conflits, de malentendus ou toutes sortes de problèmes qu’on trouve dans les relations humaines.

Quelquefois on se dit “qu’est-ce que j’ai bien pu faire pour mériter cela?” Cette pensée indique qu’il y a un compte karmique qui est en train d’être réglé.  Nous devons développer nos pouvoirs intérieurs afin de gérer les émotions, tolérer les circonstances et les personnes qui nous mettent la pression, qui nous volent, nous agressent.

Une option est de prendre la chose comme un examen.  La vie est une université.  “Même si c’est un règlement de compte karmique, je vais le considérer comme un examen.  Je comprends qu’il y a un aspect psychologiquement faible en moi.   Cette situation est venue pour m’enseigner quelque chose qui va me rendre plus fort dans cet aspect.”  Cette attitude est plus positive que l’attitude de penser qu’on est puni.

On devient de plus en plus honnête avec soi-même et avec les autres.  Le cœur qui était congelé commence à fondre.  On commence à regarder les gens dans les yeux, à être plus présent à soi-même et aux autres, à formuler ses valeurs basées sur les lois spirituelles.  Ce sont là des attributs indispensables pour ceux qui cherchent à aller dans logos.  Cela nous maintient dans plus d’authenticité, de vérité, de respect de soi, de respect et d’amour pour les autres.  En même temps, on développe notre relation avec le divin.

Il est important que notre relation avec le divin soit cohérente et continue.  Autrement cette relation ne sera activée qu’en des moments d’extrême nécessité.  Puisqu’il s’agit d’une relation, celle-ci doit être quotidienne et intelligente.  Il est essentiel d’avoir le respect de soi dans la relation avec le divin.  C’est cette force divine, Dieu, qui va percer le plafond de verre et nous laisser passer.  Cette nouvelle dimension est un paysage complètement différent, habité par des gens purs, vrais, authentiques et honnêtes avec eux-mêmes.  Très peu de gens s’y trouvent mais c’est là qu’on aimerait habiter.

Au moment où on passe des examens cela semble difficile.  C’est comme quand une femme accouche, c’est extrêmement douloureux.  Mais dès que c’est fini, elle est ravie de voir son enfant. Quelquefois la vie nous présente des choses pénibles qu’il nous faut traverser.

Une des lois de la spiritualité dit que quand on pense beaucoup à des évènements pénibles, injustes ou horribles du passé, on devient attaché à ces évènements et cela crée un lien qui nous retient dans éros.  En se l’expliquant ou en le justifiant on arrive à philos, mais on ne pourra pas aller dans logos.  Pour aller dans logos il faut se dénuder, lâcher prise totalement.  Il est nécessaire de comprendre que tous les évènements que nous avons traversés étaient des scènes latérales qui nous ont amenés jusqu’au niveau logos, qui est un niveau de libération des liens.  C’est le côté positif.  L’idée que ces évènements étaient négatifs nous empêche d’aller de l’avant.  Il est essentiel de comprendre que ces scènes appartiennent au passé et qu’elles nous permettent d’évoluer.  Elles deviennent des faits historiques positifs.  On continue le voyage de notre vie.

Beaucoup de gens restent bloqués dans les évènements du passé vécus comme négatifs et recherchent la vengeance.  Ils voudraient démontrer que ces incidents n’auraient pas dû avoir lieu.  Une des lois de la spiritualité dit “ne perdez pas votre temps à essayer de prouver que cela n’aurait pas dû arriver.”  It’s not good, it’s not bad, it just is.  Ce n’est ni bon ni mauvais, c’est comme ça.

Vous pouvez utiliser cette phrase pour neutraliser des mémoires qui cherchent à envahir votre esprit et vous empêcher de faire des progrès.

Il s’agit de tout dépasser.  “Je suis l’âme éternelle.”  Rappelez-vous souvent: “j’ai une grande valeur, je suis aimé par le divin.  J’ai un grand potentiel.  Ma vie a un sens que je suis en train de découvrir.”  Plus on arrive à faire ce saut quantique et à rester dans logos, plus le regard en arrière nous donne une perspective d’acceptation que tout était exactement ce qu’il fallait et cela amène un sentiment d’accomplissement.

Il n’y a plus d’illusions; la déception est un sentiment très déplaisant mais elle est préférable à l’illusion.  On a dépassé le sentiment pénible de la déception et on est arrivé à la clarté.  On a retrouvé la paix.  On accepte ce qui est.  On est alors dans la réalité, dans la vérité.  On a traversé les blocages, l’égo, on est de l’autre côté du plafond de verre.  On vit dans logos.  Notre relation avec le divin nous donne une perspective d’acceptation de la vie.  Les aspects temporaires prennent alors une place secondaire par rapport à logos.  Pour cette raison nous cherchons à intégrer le niveau logos dans notre conscience afin de ne plus être pris au piège de l’impermanence.

Eros Philos Logos

The Conscious Quantum Leap

I will discuss three well known Greek words,  eros, philos and logos.  Ordinarily eros is limited to the erotic.  I am using the term to signify the attraction and love for beauty.  The beauty of the landscape, nature, the human form, the human personality, all the arts including literature, painting, music and dance.  The love of beauty is an important part of life and deeply connected to the heart.  Eros is also the beauty of the family home, festivals and daily life in all its spleandour.  In India there is mention of the dangerous beauty of nature’s expressions through volcanoes, tsunamis and other spectacular manifestions.

We perceive all that is eros through our sense organs: sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste.  There is also sense pleasure in gourmet foods, physical love and extreme sports.  Everything that we can experience through the physical senses belongs to the category of eros.  For many this is life, this is happiness, this gives meaning.

We swing between happiness and misfortune.  There is also the shadow aspect of eros, when we fail, we are deluded, deceived and disappointed, or when some one dies, we lose a person, a place or an object.

Philos refers to whatever is connected to the intellect, analysis and play with ideas.  Philos is about philosophy, science and religion, whether esoteric or exoteric.  The esoteric refers to the mystical side.  Whereas the exoteric refers to prayers, chanting, rituals, buildings, institutions and religious festivals.

Philos also includes different systems of government.  Should there be a kingdom with royal families, and governance by the king, queen, princes and princesses; or should there be democracy, the preferred system of today.  Should there be dictatorship, a military junta or tyranny.  What system do we choose to govern our society?   All these are ideas.  In moral philosophy how do we know whether something is good or bad, correct or incorrect?  Anything connected with ethics and morality is part of philos.  It is important in social life to know and to be connected to our ideas so that we can formulate our values.  All this belongs to the category of philos.

For people who life exclusively in eros, it would be a quantum leap to shift from eros into the dimension of philosPhilos is subtle and requires intellectual development, the power of reason and the capacity to perform moral reasoning.  We make choices in life.  We need to judge who is good, who can be trusted, how we should use money, what is a crime and what is not a crime.

Many remain at the level of eros.  Others live in both eros and philos.  Some remain in the world of philos and disdain eros somewhat.  I once met a physicist who had won a nobel prize for his work.  He was an excellent mathematician but could not tie his shoes.  He could not manage the tasks of ordinary life and depended entirely on his wife and his university for the basics of living.

Logos is higher than philosLogos means the word of God, which must be logical, coherent and filled with the highest significance.  Logos refers to the sacred aspect of human life and is about contact with the Divine.  Logos is a level of consciousness that you encounter rarely.  It is mostly the preserve of mystics and those who give importance to the spiritual dimension.

Can develop a level of consciousness whereby we can live at all three levels at once, eros, philos and logos?  To be honest, how important is the dimension of logos in your life?  Because it is insufficient, our lives lack equilibrium and an anchor.  There are energies that bring us down and prevent us from dwelling in logos.  We must swim against these currents.  Often we are unaware that there is a current that is carrying us away towards philos and eros and that prevents us from rising to the subtle level of logos.

I would like to take up the word perception.  In the dimension of eros we perceive physicial reality, people, places, and things through our sense organs.  In the inner world of philos, we can perceive the meaning of ideas through the development of our intellect.  We must also develop the mind in order to enter the domaine of philosophy, because there is perception of meaning through the mind.  To enter the dimension of logos we require spiritual perception.  For this we must develop the soul at its deepest level of perception so that through the mind we can perceive the Divine directly.

In the Gita, India’s most revered scripture, a verse says: “There are some who perceive it.  Others declare that it exists, and a third group who asks what you are referring to.”  Those with access to logos can perceive the Divine.  Those in philos accept that logos exists, while those who are totally in eros cannot conceptualise what logos might be.

The soul has faculties.  Each soul’s faculties are developed to a different degree.  However until you begin the develop your faculties, you remain unaware to what extent they can be developed.  Each one has their own limitations which are difficult to exceed.

Anyone can begin a course of study, but very few achieve excellence or virtuosity.  Very few become masters.  Whether it is cooking, sport, music, dance or medicine.  In Hollywood they say for cinema stars, there is 5% talent and 95% hard work.

Our capacity for raising our level of consciousness and achieving the level of logos depends on will power.  You need to dedicate time to work regularly and intensively.  And as soon as you begin such work everything that lies hidden within the subconscious mind will erupt.

The development of human consciousness does not cost money, so it is said to be free.  But that is only at the level of money.  There are other costs.  It requires attention and time to overcome psychological barriers.  In general most people have sustained psychological wounds due to severe shocks experienced in life.  These wounds neither heal spontaneously nor with time.  They take the form of blockages that are hard to break through.  These psychological barriers block our way when we wish to rise from eros and philos and reach the level of logos.  Crossing these barriers requires total honesty which is not easy.  Those who are the most wounded have difficulty facing and recounting their story, and tend to remain in denial.

Some claim they are not wounded but they display a lot of arrogance.  This arrogance takes the form of an impenetrable wall that stands between the self and the attainment of the level of logos.  This situation is probably worse that a wound.  When the heart and soul are wounded they seek a healing.  The arrogant person thinks he or she has everything or knows everything and does not seek to be healed from his or her arrogance.  To achieve a healing, it seems to be we have a better chance if we are aware that we carry a wound, than if we are arrogant.

There are different types of wound.  A sign of being wounded is fear and anxiety.  When someone has experienced extreme circumstances there is always the possibility that simmilar circumstances may recur.  It is normal to have fear and live in anxiety.  In the face of fear there are two options.  One is courage, the other is cowardice and to avoid facing the fear.

People who experience a lot of fear and anxiety often also show a lot of courage.  Cowardice does not look good.  When someone has passed through extremely difficult situations he or she develops the habit of acting out of great courage.  Thus badly wounded people often display great courage.  They also have a lot of anger, which is itself a defense mechanism.  Anger and violence do not look good therefore they get transformed into courage.  Such a person has the tendency to supress negative emotions by shifting into the dimension of philos and going into justification and denial.  Deconstructing all this is psychological work.  These are barriers which prevent one from making the quantum leap required to cross the glass ceiling and reach the subtle and elevated territory of the dimension of logos.  The invisible blockage resembles the struggle of a bee to fly through a window of transparent glass that blocks her passage and she just cannot understand.

Someone who initiates a spiritual practice needs time and space to pass through various stages.  The first stage is to put in place certain disciplines.  These are exercises which reinforce the muscle of consciousness.  Establishing spiritual disciplines creates strength.  In the practice of Raja Yoga we begin with certain physical disciplines.  For example, if someone claims to be practicing non-violence, then they have to become vegetarian in order to avoid killing what they are about to eat.  Some people salivate thinking about their steak, their grilled fish and their chichen nuggets.  They would find this discipline hard.

Another discipline is to stop drinking alcohol.  Why?  Alcohol affects the quality of our consciousness.  It puts the individual into an altered state of consciousness then gradually and progressively diminishes their will power.  It distorts perception and gradually they lose the power to manage their emotions and feelings.  Such a person experiences mood swings and behaviour patterns that become difficult to manage.  Other recreational drugs like cocaine, heroin, opioids etc. produce similar effects and the individual gradually becomes a slave to the substance.

Someone who follows these disciplines takes responsibility for managing their own emotions.  When their wound is triggered by some ordinary situation they experience an emotional reaction that is abnormally strong.  This indicates the area and the origin of their wound.  A person who desires to do spiritual work, must dig deep to find the origin of their trauma that has blocked their psychological development.  The reaction might be violence, anger, extreme fear or anxiety, inability to manage their thoughts, irrational thinking and production of endless internal films.  They experience doubts, fantasies and nightmares that they are unable to control.  The experience of war, being in a natural disaster or an epidemic, leaves traumatic scars and psychological barriers that remain in the soul until they are healed.

Psychological work involves neutralising the negative emotions and transcending many toxic patriarchal social attitudes that have blocked a person’s psychological development.  For example the inequitable way that men and women are treated.

The dimension of logos provides a completely different perspective on life.  It carries us beyond conventional morality.  All spiritual powers and virtues are in place.  To dwell in Logos, it is important to work through psychological barriers the moment they arise.  There is also the matter of karma.  The philosophy of karma is complex and difficult to decrypt.

The soul is non physical, spiritual, eternal, it is the animating force in the body and is linked to the sacred.  Negative karma generates blocks that stand between the soul and the Divine.  These blocks force the soul to remain at the level of eros.  Some souls manage to develop the philos aspect in order to avoid everything connected to the heart, feelings, betrayal and the various wounds sustained by the soul.  Such people flee into intellectualism.

To make the quantum leap into the dimension of logos one must discern clearly, “What exctly am I, the soul, doing?  What tactics am I using to avoid facing the truths that I must face in order to cross my blockages?”  Generally people cannot see themselves.  They do not see their barricades, but others do see them.  Some can see them more clearly than others.

A person that we trust, who can see clearly, has our interests at heart, will tell us what our problem is.  For example, “your relationships with people are fear based.”  The other will respond, “What, Me?!!!  Not at all,  I have a lot of courage and I did this and that etc.”  Due to passing through many severe situations that person has developed the attitude of courage as a mask to hide their fears.  The reality behind the mask is a state of denial, and unawareness.

Fear and anxiety influence that soul and drive their karma, their activities, and the person convinces themselves that their courage is an indication of having already healed.  The individual denies that he or she has fabricated this mask of courage to disguise the fear.  Then their behaviour patterns are discernibly artificial and contrived.

People who are real have enough clarity to see themselves accurately.  They do not have double standards.  When there is ego either they consider themselves to be greater than thay are or to be less than they truly are.  They oscillate between the two which are anyway both false.  They cannot see themselves as they are.

Making a quantum leap of consciousness demands being completely real.  The wounded person tends to be hypocritical and artificial.  That one needs to listen to trusted people who may tell them painful truths.  Are they ready to hear such words?  If they take the words as insults then the trusted people will hesitate to speak further.

Interpersonal communication is becoming progressively less authentic as people cannot tolerate painful words.  The ego is set off, reacts and adopts defensive attitudes.  The mask of pretence remains in place hiding the wound.  To repair all this one must engage in psychological work.  Many think this is spiritual work, but no, it is psychlogical.  It takes time to complete and then begin the real spiritual work.  There are steps.  First the individual establishes his or her life style disciplines.  Secondly he or she begins the deep psychological work, which can take several years.  Then the deep spiritual work can be undertaken

It is important to trust those who tell us the truth.  These are our real friends.  False people never tell us the truth.  When we accept the truth that breaks our ego, the false ego can then die and the real self emerges.  If we wish to make the quantum leap and reach logos, we have to ask the Divine to send us such friends.  Otherwise circumstances such as a disease will arise.  Someone sick is dependant and needs others to wash and dress them.  The ego prefers to be independent, so such circumstances also break the ego.  Severe physical pain and the possibility of death in extreme pain takes a person to and beyond their limits.  This also can break the ego and provide the possibility for the person to transcend their limitations and move into the dimension of logos.  Some souls manage to develop philos.  They analyse their situation dispassionately and consider their past traumas with detachment.  Finally the spiritual work can begin.

Consciousness is within, but the soul believes in external reality as we perceive it via the sense organs.  This is body consciousness, consciousness of matter.  Spirituality orientates us towards the inner dimension.  Internal orientation is a practice that requires much time to develop.  There are many distractions, things that need doing, etc.  When we get bed-bound due to a broken leg there is a chance, but even in such a position there are obstacles, we complain, we watch TV, read books etc. because there is not the political will or determination to to do the necessary work that allows us to evolve spiritually.  Determination is the key ingredient that enables us to pass through the glass ceiling and enter into the dimension of logos.  This level is also called the Karmateet Stage.  Karmateet signifies that the individual has settled their karmic accounts and is free from any burden or debt, they are in their power.

During the period of psychological work we must also settle karmic accounts.  This can take the form of conflicts, misunderstandings, and all the many problems that arise in normal human relationships.  We might sometimes wonder “what on earth could I have done to deserve this!”  This thought indicates that a karmic account is playing out and is in the process of getting settled.  Therefore we need to develop substantial inner powers to manage the emotions, tolerate the situations and people who pressurise us, who steal from us and who violate us in various ways.

One option is to consider it as a test.  Life is a university.  “Even if it is a settlement of karma, I will consider it as an exam.  I understand that it reveals the presence of some character weakness within me.  This has arisen to teach me something that will strengthen me in that area.”  This is a more positive attitude that taking it as a punishment or retribution for some past bad deed.

Through these circumstances we beome more honest with ourselves and with others.  The frozen heart begins to melt.  We start looking at people directly in their eyes, and become more present for ourselves and for others.  We formulate our values on the basis of spiritual principles.  These are essential attributes of those who seek to enter into Logos.  It makes us more authentic, more real.  We have greater self-respect and respect and love for others.  At the same time we cultivate our relationship with the Divine.

Our relationship with the Divine needs to be coherent and continuous.  Otherwise the relationship is only activated at moments of extreme necessity.  Because it is a relationship it must be a living, meaningful and daily communication.  Self-respect is findamental In our relationship with the Divine.  This divine force, God, is the one that pierces the glass ceiling and allows us to pass through. This new dimension is a completely different landscape, inhabited by real, genuine and pure people who are honest with themselves.  Very few people live at this level, but this is where we would like to dwell.

At the time when we are taking tests they seem very hard.  Like when a woman gives birth, it is extremely painful, but as soon as it is completed, she is over-joyed to see her child.  Sometimes life presents us with terrible trials that we must cross

One of the Laws of Spirituality says that “when we think too much about painful, horrible situations, or some injustice that was done to us, we get attached to those events and these bind us to eros.”  When we try to justify our attitude we may reach as far as philos, but we will not reach logos that way.  To enter the dimension of logos we must strip ourselves down to the core, and let go of everything we may be holding on to.  We have to interpret these events as side-scenes which brought us to this level of logos, and a state of being free from our bondages.  This is positive.  The idea that the events were negative prevents us from moving forward.  It is essential to understand that these scenes belong to the past and they made it possible for us to evolve.  Thus they become positive historical facts.  We continue the journey of life.

Many stay stuck in the events of the past that they experienced as traumatic, they may seek revenge, they wish the incidents had never happened, and they obsessively and repeatedly run the scenes through their minds.  One of the Laws of Spirituality says, “It’s not good, it’s not bad, it just is.”  We can use this phrase to neutralise the hold these memories have over us and which seem to overwhelm our spirit preventing us from moving on.

We need to move beyond everything.  “I am an eternal soul.”  Remind yourself often: “I am extremely valuable, I am loved by the Divine.  I have great potential.  My life has a sense and purpose that I am just discovering.”  The more we make the quantum leap of consciousness and stay in logos, the more the view when we look back on the past, gives us a perspective of acceptance and an awareness that everything was exactly as it should have been.  This brings a feeling of fulfillment.

There are no more illusions.  Disillusionment is a very unpleasant feeling but far preferable to staying under an illusion.  We get past the unpleasant experience of disillusionment and reach clarity.  We have made our peace.  We accept what was.  Then we are in a state of being real, we are in truth.  We have passed through our blocks and ego masks.  We are on the other side of the glass ceiling.  We live in logos.  Our relationships with the Divine lets us accept the way life is.  Temporary incidents take second place in comparison to logos.  Therefore we seek to integrate the level of logos into our consciousness so that we no longer get trapped in the illusion of impermanent realities.

German Murli Notes

Murlinotizen 23. August 2018 Schwester Denise

Baba beschreibt die Erinnerung als eine steile Leiter. Das beinhaltet, dass wir uns über alles erheben müssen, auch von einer Sache, die die Form, das Aussehen und die Größe des Himalaya annehmen könnte. Die Übung, uns selbst weit über Allem zu halten, ist für unsere abschließenden Tests wichtig.

Baba spricht über Liebe. Wie ihr mich schon oftmals davon sprechen gehört habt, ist Liebe kein Gefühl, sondern eine Einstellung. Liebe für den Vater bedeutet, ein klares Verständnis davon zu haben, dass Er die Quelle dessen ist, was wir benötigen. Wenn wir durch die Anziehung an eine Person, einen Ort oder ein Ding abgelenkt werden bedeutet das, dass wir nicht verstanden haben, was wir von Gott erhalten. Deswegen wird davon gesprochen, dass preet buddhi, der Intellekt, mit Liebe ist und vipreet buddhi der Intellekt, der nicht etwa keine Liebe hat, sondern einer ist, der mit Hass gefüllt ist. Hass meint, dass ihr Gott nicht versteht, ihr nehmt an, dass Gott etwas sei, das Er gar nicht ist. Auch das ist eine Art der Beleidigung Gottes. Shiv Baba erklärt uns, was Er tatsächlich ist und wie wir über Ihn denken sollten. Daher bedeutet Liebe für Ihn zu haben, Ihn auch so zu verstehen, wie Er sich uns zeigt. Wir unterlassen es, unsere Vorurteile und früheren religiösen Überzeugungen damit zu vermischen. Gibt es eine Vermischung, so bedeutet das, dass wir Ihn nicht richtig verstehen. In der Folge können wir uns nicht mit Ihm verbinden.

Baba betont, dass dies unser letztes Leben ist, dass dies das Ende ist. Unsere Rollen sind beendet, das Schauspiel ist zu Ende und alles ist vorüber. Baba hat das Wort Samapti am Ende der letzten Saison benutzt. Viele BKs denken darüber nach, was „alles ist vorüber“ bedeutet. Die avyakte Rolle ist sicherlich vorüber, die sakar Rolle ist schon seit 1969 beendet. Die Frage, die allen auf dem Herzen brennt lautet: Was kommt als Nächstes? Die meisten BKs sind der Ansicht, dass wir Yoga von sehr viel höherer Qualität benötigen. Sie betrachten Yoga als eine Übung, die uns weit über all die Betrachtungen der Welt erhebt, die moralischen und ethischen Betrachtungen eingeschlossen und dass Yoga dazu führt, dass wir die Welt aus Gottes Perspektive von der Seelenwelt aus betrachten.

Baba spricht über den Tod. Wir leben ein Leben, in dem wir schon gestorben sind. Er nennt dies Murjeeva janam. Das setzt voraus, dass wir unsere Unterstützung von Gott beziehen. Shiv Baba ist unsere Quelle. Wir nehmen keine Unterstützung von der Welt. Baba vergleicht den liebevollen


Intellekt mit dem Intellekt voller Hass der Yadavas (Europäer aus dem Westen) und der Kauravas (nicht erleuchtete Hindus aus Indien). Die Kauravas werden als jene betrachtet, die Gott und die Wahrheit hassen. Sie sind nicht bereit, sie in Betracht zu ziehen oder ihr gemäß zu handeln. Wenn Baba davon spricht, dass wir keinerlei Verbindung mehr zu dieser Welt haben, so bezieht sich das auf das Beziehen von Unterstützung von dieser Welt, dass eure Identität vollständig dieser Welt entspringt. Seid ihr jedoch lebendig gestorben bedeutet das, dass euer Sinn von der anderen Seite entspringt, der nicht-materiellen Seite, der Seite auf der Baba zu finden ist.

Durch diese Übung des lebendig gestorbenen Seins passieren viele Dinge. Im Licht des Wissens vom Weltkreislauf und der Wiedergeburt, hören wir auf, uns vor dem Tod zu fürchten und wir hören auf, uns mit dem Körper zu identifizieren. Wir betrachten den Körper als ein Objekt, das wir benutzen und das wir letzten Endes ablegen werden. Wir sind nicht alarmiert, wenn eine andere Person stirbt, weil wir verstehen, dass alle Seelen sind und sie wiederkommen werden. Nichts geht jemals verloren. Wir verstehen, dass dies unser letztes Leben ist, dass Shiv Baba in der Endzeit kommt, der Zeit der Zerstörung und dass wir schon viele Male durch sie hindurchgegangen sind. Shiv Baba erklärt uns, dass er uns das vor 5000 Jahren schon alles gesagt hat und es jetzt einmal mehr tut. Baba betont, dass das Übergangszeitalter, das Zeitalter zwischen dem Eisernen und dem Goldenen Zeitalter, der Zeitabschnitt der Zerstörung ist. Baba nennt die Zerstörung eine Aufgabe. Das bedeutet, dass es eine schöpferische Arbeit ist, was ein Paradoxon darstellt.

Heute legt Baba einen Schwerpunkt auf die Frauen, insbesondere die Jungfrauen – die Kumaris. Die Murli erwähnt, dass die Kumari 21 Clans erhebt. Das ist ein sehr bekanntes Sprichwort in Indien. Doch es wäre treffender, wenn von 21 Generationen gesprochen würde. Was immer ihr als Babas Kind, Babas Student, als ein Yogi und Anhänger des Satgurus macht, hat enormen Einfluss auf eure biologischen Verwandten. Viele sind sich dessen nicht bewusst, weil es solch eine subtile Sache ist und sie ist oft erst nach vielen Jahren zu erkennen.

Es gibt hier einen Bezug zur Christenheit. Die Jungfrau Maria ist eine Kumari und gleichzeitig die Mutter von Jesus. Die indischen Gottheiten sind alle Jungfrauen, doch sie werden gleichzeitig Mütter genannt. Hier gibt es eine ganz klare Verbindung zwischen der spirituellen Bedeutung der indischen Gottheiten und der der Jungfrau Maria, doch den Christen ist diese unbekannt. Zumindest ist mir nicht bekannt, dass sie sie kennen.


Der Prozess des lebendigen Sterbens führt zu der Notwendigkeit, alle Anhänglichkeit zu zerstören. Anhänglichkeit entsteht, wenn wir von einer Sache, einem Ort oder einer Person emotionale Unterstützung nehmen. Baba möchte von uns, dass wir diese loslassen und mit oder ohne diese Unterstützung klar kommen. Darin besteht die Übung des Lotuslebens. Ihr befindet euch in dieser Welt, seid aber nicht von ihr. Ihr befindet euch über der Negativität der Welt.

Baba spricht davon, dass das Wissen eine Angelegenheit von einer Sekunde sei. Ihr erlebt einen Moment der Klarheit, einen Moment der Erleuchtung, sobald ihr versteht, dass ihr eine Seele seid, dass ihr zu Gott gehört und ihr den Kreislauf versteht. Es braucht nur einen Augenblick, um das zu , doch eine lange Zeit, um eure karmischen Konten zu beenden. Damit überwindet ihr den Widerstand und die Trägheit, euer Schicksal zu erschaffen. Deswegen erwähnt Baba den Punkt von König Janak, der im Übergangszeitalter zu spät gekommen ist. Er geht ins Silberne Zeitalter, weil er nicht die Zeit hatte, Yogakraft anzusammeln, zu studieren und daran zu arbeiten, seine offenstehenden karmischen Konten zu begleichen.

Die Brahma Kumaris erleben nun eine Ära des Wandels, jetzt da Bapdadas avyakte Rolle vorüber ist. Ich denke, wir werden bald sehr bekannte Leute zu uns kommen sehen. Viele werden kommen, doch sie werden nicht genug Zeit haben. Sie werden der Praxis sehr intensiv nachgehen, doch weil die Zeit zu kurz ist, werden sie nicht dazu fähig sein, das Bewusstsein zu erreichen, das Baba dasjenige des goldenzeitalterlichen Meisters oder Kaisers nennt.

Shiv Baba beschreibt sich selbst als Sarvashaktivan und das wird als Allmächtige Autorität übersetzt. Es gibt Zeiten, in denen spricht Baba von sich selbst als der Autorität, doch das bezieht sich üblicherweise auf die Autorität des Wissens. Wir müssen verstehen, was es bedeutet, dass er alle Kräfte besitzt. Er besitzt alle Kräfte und er weiß alles. Daher ist er die Autorität des Wissens. Auf Englisch gibt es den Ausdruck allwissend und den Ausdruck allmächtig. Baba spricht nicht davon, dass er allgegenwärtig sei, doch dass er eine allwissende Autorität des Wissens sei und er allmächtig sei, der Allmächtige.

In den frühen Tagen der Yagya bezogen sich die BKs auf Shiv Baba als Allmächtiger Baba und sie benutzten das Wort Baba für Brahma Baba. Unsere Liebe für Shiv Baba ist mit unserer Erkenntnis seines Wesens verbunden. Wenn wir Gott nicht erkennen können wir von ihm keine Wohltat erhalten. Baba versteht unter Liebe Ihm gegenüber, dass wir Ihn erkennen und entsprechend handeln. Das meint auch, dass ihr eure Erhaltung und Unterstützung nur von Shiv Baba bezieht und


von nirgendwo anders her So könnt ihr euch ausschließlich auf Ihn fokussieren. Andere, von denen ihr zuvor Unterstützung erhalten habt, werden dann als Mitschauspieler im Drama verstanden. Ihr bezieht von ihnen keine emotionale Unterstützung mehr und könnt sie daher loslassen, wann immer ihr es tun müsst.

Baba vergleicht die BKs mit unterschiedlichen Vogelarten. Nachtigallen sprechen das Wissen sehr lieblich und jeder möchte ihnen zuhören. Papageien wiederholen, was ihnen beigebracht wurde, verstehen es jedoch nicht notwendigerweise. Es gibt in Südindien einen Tempel der Gottheit Minakshi, die einen Papagei auf ihrer Schulter trägt. Dadi Janki hat sich selbst mit dieser Gottheit verglichen und gesagt: „Ich sage euch überhaupt nichts, ich wiederhole einfach das, was ich von Baba gehört habe.“ Krähen sind Leute, die streiten und sich zanken. Es gibt welche, die sind so. Tauben machen ein gurrendes Geräusch und sagen überhaupt nichts in eigener Angelegenheit, sondern machen einen Ton, den jemand macht, wenn er mit dem Gehörten einverstanden ist. Die Taube wird mit Parvati und der Geschichte der Unsterblichkeit assoziiert. Diese Geschichte wurde niemals bekannt, weil Parvati eingeschlafen ist. Das Geräusch von Tauben vermittelte Shankar den Eindruck, dass sie zuhören würden. Baba bittet uns, uns selbst mit Blumen zu vergleichen: „Ist eure Form schön, habt ihr wunderschöne Farben und einen schönen Duft? Bewertet euch selbst dementsprechend.“

Es gibt eine Geschichte von der Stadt der Dunkelheit. In der Stadt der Dunkelheit hatten alle Dinge denselben Preis, jeder hatte denselben Status. Die Stadt endete in einer absoluten Katastrophe. Diese berühmte Geschichte in Gedichtform ist in der indischen Bevölkerung sehr bekannt und wird im Allgemeinen von ihnen in der Schule gelernt. Sie bezieht sich auf die Demokratie. Die benutzt sie als Sinnbild für die Herrschaft des Volkes über das Volk. Baba sagt, dass die bessere Regierungsform die Monarchie sei. Jeder ist unterschiedlich und Baba erschafft das Königreich. In der modernen Welt hängen wir der Idee der Demokratie an. Die BK-Organisation muss auf demokratische Weise funktionieren doch die Yagya ist die Vorbereitung auf das Königreich. Das Königreich ist hierarchisch strukturiert, doch Hierarchie beinhaltet keine Tyrannei.

Die Könige und Königinnen des späten Eisernen Zeitalters waren Tyrannen und es wurden Republiken nach ihnen errichtet. Sobald das System der Monarchie abgeschafft wurde, wurde es durch eine Republik ersetzt, die, degeneriert, in einer Militärdiktatur endet, die weiter zu Anarchie, Bürgerkrieg und Zerstörung hin degeneriert. Die Demokratie ist Teil des Prozesses, der zur Zerstörung führt, weil sie insbesondere im Indien der 1940er Jahre sehr leicht korrumpiert werden


konnte. Baba bevorzugt die Monarchie. Die indischen Könige müssen sowohl spirituell, als auch politisch machtvoll und rein sein und dem Königreich dienen. Das Beispiel eines Raj Rishi wird gegeben, was sich auf König Janak, eines großartigen Königs und Entsagenden bezieht. Baba beschreibt Raja-Yoga oft als die Übung, die jetzt notwendig ist, wenn ihr in der Zukunft gute Herrscher werden wollt.

Baba zitiert den sehr bekannten Satz: „Zur Zeit der Zerstörung sind jene mit einem Intellekt, der mit Liebe angefüllt ist, siegreich. Jene, deren Intellekt zur Zeit der Zerstörung hasserfüllt ist, werden zerstört werden.“ Dieses uralte Sprichwort wird aller Erwartung nach während unserer Lebenszeit in Aktion treten und ist daher etwas, das es zu überdenken gilt.

Im Abschluß erinnert uns Baba daran, dass dies ein Wettkampf sei. Er ist sehr ausgefeilt und komplex und nur acht werden gewinnen, weil nur acht die Ebene von Yoga erreichen werden, auf der vollständige Loslösung herrscht. Sie werden von den unterschiedlichen Szenen der Zerstörung nicht beunruhigt. Es gibt viele Gelegenheiten, die Unabhängigkeit von sicht- und fühlbaren Dramaszenen zu üben.

Ein hohes Bewusstsein zu erschaffen – die fliegende Stufe – wird durch wahre Loslösung mittels Seelenbewusstsein erlangt. Dann kann euch kein Problem verärgern oder als so riesig, wie der Himalaya erscheinen. Nehmt alles mit dem dritten Auge des göttlichen Intellektes wahr und ihr werdet eure Belohnung erkennen.

Der Slogan ist interessant. Jene, die jeden achten, werden Vorbilder oder Archetypen. Was bedeutet es, alle zu achten? Ist es möglich alle zu achten, wenn ihr euch selbst nicht achtet? Denkt tief darüber nach, was es bedeutet, ein Vorbild zu sein, durch diese tiefe und außergewöhnliche Qualität der Achtung.

Om Shanti


Arabic Language. Murli Notes

Murli notes august 16 الأخت دنيس نقطة مهمة حول اليوغا: أولاً ، كن بوعيًا روحياً وفقط عندها من الممكن تذكر شيف بابا. في الكثير من الأحيان يحاول الناس أن يتذكروا شيف بابا وهم لا يزالون بوعي جسدي ثم يتفاجأون بأنهم لا ينجحون. والجهد الرئيسي هو أن يصبح المرء بوعي روحي ، وبعدها تصبح بنفس البعد والمستوى مثل شيف بابا. ثم يمكنك الاتصال بسهولة. نقطة فلسفية مهمة تأتي في السؤال والجواب. الإنسان يتأثر بالتأكيد بالكارما. هناك العديد من المجموعات والممارسات الروحية التي تقول بأن الروح محصنة من تأثير الكارما. هذا لأنهم يفترضون بأن النفس هي جزءاً من الله ، والله بالتأكيد محصن من الكارما. شيف بابا هو دائما كارماتيت ولكن النفس تتأثر. ومن ثم فإن مجهود الراج يوغا هو أن تصبح بالكامل خالي من حسابات الكارمة وأن تصل إلى مرحلة الكارماتيت. إشارة الإقتراب من حالة الكارماتيت هو عندما تصبح محايداً بشكل متزايد بما يتعلق بأقطاب السعادة والحزن ، الجيد والسيئ والممتع والغير سار. تصبح أقرب إلى مرحلة شيف بابا التي هي كارمايت ، وهذا هو أيضا الجهد لنكون ببسامان ، )مثل الأب(. إن المعلومات التي نحتاجها لتحقيق ذلك موجودة داخل شيف بابا ، والمعلومات التي يقدمها البشر الاتين من مختلف المسارات والممارسات والأديان المختلفة غير كافية و / أو غير صحيحة. بسبب ذلك لا تنجح. هذه الكلمة “تجسيد للسلام” تُعطى للروح. أعتقد أن “التجسيد” قد لا تكون كلمة جيدة لأنها تشير إلى الجسد. ” Swaroop ” تعني شكل الذات ، والطريقة الذاتية. “الدارما” الأصلية للروح هي السلام ، الصمت ، السكون. إذا كنت تفهم أن كلمة “دارما” تعني الدين فقط ، فهذا لا معنى له. هناك معنى آخر “للدارما” ، وهو “ما أنت عليه بالتحديد” ، “ما هو تعريفك”. تعريف الروح هو أن تكون في حالة سكون أصلية. هذا يوازي الطاقة المحتملة للروح عندما لا تكون نشطة. بمجرد أن تأتي الروح إلى عالم المادة ، والعمل ، والوقت ، وإلى جسد تصبح هذه الطاقة حركية. يتم استخدام كلمة “الروح العظيمة”. أعتقد أننا نستطيع أن نبقي الكلمة باللغة الهندية. اعتاد الناس على كلمة “المهاتما” خاصةً عندما يتم تطبيقها على غاندي. ليس لديك مرجع لكلمة “الروح العظيمة” ولكن إذا استخدمت كلمة المهاتما التي هي جزء من اللغة الإنجليزية في الوقت الحاضر ، فأنت عندها تعرف بالظبط ما الذي تشير إليه. التعبير المستخدم هو: “اليوغا الفكريه ترتفع.” من الصعب نوعا ما معرفة ما يعنيه ذلك ، ولكن يمكنك ترجمة كلمة اليوغا بودي “بتركيز انتباهك”، ومن ثم يكون من الأسهل بكثير فهم وإدراك أن تركيز اهتمامك يرتفع إلى فوق عندما تتذكر ، أو عندما تتحدث عن الآب الأعلى الروح العليا. بابا يدخل المعرفة إلى بصيرتنا أو يمكننا أن نقول أيضا إلى ذكاؤنا. الذكاء يتطلب أن يكون لديك القدرة على فهم ومعالجة المفاهيم. إنها ليست مسألة شعور. الشعور يحدث في العقل ولكن الفهم يحدث في الذكاء. سأستخدم كلمة “ذكاء” و “ضمير” لبوذي لأننا لا نستخدم كلمة البصيرة بهذه الطريقة باللغة الإنجليزية. هناك تفريق مثير للاهتمام يجعله بابا حول الفيداس والغيتا. من المثير للاهتمام أن نعرف أنه في الغيتا ، يذكر بوضوح أن الفيداس هي للأشخاص الذين لا يمتلكون الكثير من الذكاء الخفي ، وأن الغيتا هي المعرفة التي يعطيها الله. أولئك الذين يختارون الفيداس هم أشخاص غير قادرين على فهم المعرفة التي يقدمها الله. هناك وصف مثير للاهتمام عن الذكر وغفران الخطايا. كما تعلمون ، الغفران هو مفهوم مسيحي والراجا يوغا ليست الديانة المسيحية. ما هي الخطيئة؟ الخطيئة هي تأثير الفعل السلبي ، الذي يضعك في عبودية للمادة والناس والأماكن والأشياء. الخطيئة ثم تحكم تصرفاتك والنتيجة هي المعاناة. الخطيئة تأخذ شكل الكسل الذاتي. الطريقة لأن تصبح حرًا هي الانفصال عن مسألة جسدك المادي والبقاء في ذكرى شيف بابا ، وتنفيذ الإجراءات ، ليس على أساس ردت فعل للنشاط الإحساسي ، ولكن مبني على مفهوم الغيان ، الذي يرشدنا إلى نوعية الكارمة الذي يجب فعلها بالحالات المختلفة. حياة براهما بابا هي الموسوعة لتقريباً جميع الحالات. هناك أمثلة على كيفية تفسير براهما بابا للمعرفة ، واستجابته لمختلف المواقف. التعلق هو مشكلة كبيرة. عندما تتذكر شخصًا أو مكانًا أو شيئًا ، أنت ترتبط بالمادة والأنشطة داخل الدراما وتأثير الدراما على وعيك. ومع ذلك ، عندما تنفصل عن تأثير الدراما ، وتفصل انجذابك عن الناس والأماكن والأشياء ، عندها تصبح حرًا ، والخطيئة لا تعمل بطريقة إجبارك على التصرف بطريقة معينة. لقد قمت بإبطال مفعول الخطيئة. هذا ، بالنسبة لي ، منطقياً أكثر من فكرة الغفران ، التي تعني أن تتذكر شيف بابا وهو ينزع خطاياك. ليس عليك القيام بأي شيء عدا الإيمان. هذا يعيدنا إلى التفكير الديني. هو مثل الإيمان الأعمى لأنك لا تستطيع فهم العملية أو الطريقة التي بواسطتها سوف يأخذ شيف بابا ذنوبك. هو يعطينا تعليمات لنحرر أنفسنا من الخطايا. لذلك ، إنها طريقة مفيدة أكثر للفهم. ثم يتوجب علينا أن نباشر بالعمل للإنتهاء من خطايانا. يعطينا التوجيهات والتعليمات المفصلة. عندما يقول بابا “أعطيكم المكافأة” ، هذا يعني أن المعلم يعطينا الكثير من المعلومات التي تخولنا على خلق ثروة غير محدودة لأنفسنا. يعطينا إمكانية خلق الثروة ، لكنه لا يمنحنا الثروة. يتصل بنا ويعلمنا ويمكّننا من خلق الثروة. حبه ، هديته ، هي المعرفة وكل شيء آخر يتبع ذلك. يوضح بابا بأن السعادة هي ما يحدث لنا عندما نقوم بأداء الكارما الدقيقة. لقد أخذنا السلطة الكاملة من بابا ويمكننا مقاومة سحب مايا والمادة والحزن والأوضاع والظروف التي هي أقوى منا. بابا يجعلنا أقوى من المواقف ، ثم نصبح أحرار ، وبعد ذلك نصبح سعداء. يأخذنا بابا إلى السكينة ، ولكن السكينة ليست أرض اً. السكينة هي حالة من الصمت العميق حيث لا يوجد حتى صوت فكرة. ممارسة الذهاب إلى الصفر هي حالة دقيقة للغاية. إنها على بعد مختلف. كلمة “الأرض” هي أرضية. الجنة هنا على الأرض. الجنة ليست فوق والجحيم ليست بالأسفل ، كل شيء هنا. السكينة هو بعد آخر ، غير أرضي.

Spanish Murli Notes December 4, 2018

Comentarios de sister Denise del 4 de Diciembre 2018.
El propósito del yoga espiritual al contrario del yoga físico es alcanzar la pureza en uno mismo, y así uno puede alcanzar la pureza en el mundo.
En la pregunta y la respuesta Baba nos pide pensar sobre la fe. Tenemos que tener fe en nosotros mismos, que somos los hijos del Padre y vamos a recibir la soberanía de las deidades, y así podemos entender que nuestro tiempo de la devoción ha terminado. Y si lo comprendemos muy bien podemos convertirnos en héroes pero muy pocos lo harán. En el cuerpo de la murli Baba habla del deseo profundo de las almas de regresar al mundo de las armas que en primer lugar, es el lugar de dónde venimos, este deseo profundo es un indicador que estamos al borde del viaje de regreso al mundo de las almas el lugar que está más allá del mundo material donde no hay la luz del sol o la luna donde no hay drama y es una región completamente diferente de dónde venimos y adónde regresaremos. Hasta ahora hemos tenido fe en que somos cuerpos materiales y ahora tenemos que desarrollar una fe muy profunda en el ser un alma incorporal que pertenece al mundo incorporal, y éste deseo profundo de regresar es el indicador de que esto es una realidad. Así, nuestros papeles están por terminar; pertenecemos al único padre a ese hogar, el elemento de luz, en la murli dice, el elemento del cielo pero ustedes saben muy bien que no es así, es el elemento del éter. Así este es el mundo material, donde el ciclo está girando y los elementos de la materia están aquí. Baba nos está cambiando nuestra relación, haciéndola más fuerte con el mundo incorporal y menos fuerte con el mundo material porque tenemos que entrar en el estado de conciencia donde queremos dejar el mundo material y para eso el mundo incorporal debe ser muy real para nosotros, y tenemos que desarrollar el desapego del mundo material de lo contrario no lo podemos dejar con desapego.
Hay muchos elementos del camino de la devoción que nos ayudan a comprender que
tenemos una conexión profunda con el mundo arriba y más allá y también con el Ser
Supremo el Alma Suprema, quién está allí y quién es nuestra fuente, ésta comprensión se
ha vuelto corrupta por el concepto de la omnipresencia que ha hecho el intelecto de todos quedarse atrapado del mundo material pensando que no hay distinción en lo material y lo no material.
Mientras Maya tiene diferentes significados, uno de los cuales es, sus pecados del pasado,
otro es, el materialismo y otro es, el concepto de que no hay nada más allá del mundo
material, por lo tanto, aparta completamente su orientación hacia el padre. Hay dos
energías, una es la energía de Dios y la otra es la energía de la materia; y nuestra guerra es la de obtener victoria sobre la materia y la ilusión de que la materia es la realidad del ser.
Habrá esta Gran Guerra del mundo pero la verdadera guerra intensa es contra la atracción de la materia, la orientación de la mente hacia los órganos de los sentidos y los objetos de los sentidos, esto es lo que dice la Gita, éste es realmente el obstáculo para el alma, así que el alma tiene que retirarse de la orientación de los órganos de los sentidos y de los objetos para poder ir a otro nivel y conectarse con el mundo incorporal y recordar al padre quién está allí en el mundo incorporal, y esto es lo que hace que nos hagamos puros y no hay otra forma de yoga. Los otros tipos de yoga dan alivio temporal pero este no es yoga físico es el yoga espiritual para hacernos puros para siempre. Éste yoga con el océano de la pureza que se vuelve como un fuego que destruye la corrupción las impurezas que han contaminado al alma.
A pesar de que la gente en la India piensa que los ricos están en el paraíso y los pobres van al infierno, sin embargo, ésta no es la Edad de Oro sino la Edad de Hierro, que significa que todos estamos en el infierno ricos o pobres. Lo que estamos alcanzando de Baba no es tanto la auto soberanía, sino la independencia de la materia, de la gente con mentalidad materialista, independiente de los vicios y de cualquier otra dependencia que puedan tener.
Este es realmente el reino, este proceso es también para encontrar esas almas que tienen
el potencial para convertirse en los reyes para convertirse en los héroes de Baba la mayoría de la gente a las que ustedes les hablan que no toman el conocimiento son llamados súbditos en la Edad de Oro porque ellos están todavía sujetos a los vicios a la materia, ellos no harán ese nivel de esfuerzos que convierte a una persona en un verdadero héroe un verdadero rey y reclama su herencia.
Hay personas que no pueden seguir el shrimat, es muy difícil para ellos separarse de la
sociedad convencional. Baba da ejemplos de cómo y porqué él no debe ser llamado
omnipresente, una muy interesante es, ni una sola persona es infeliz en la ausencia del
padre, así, cómo la gente puede ser tan infeliz en su presencia? Así la ausencia del padre
es en la Edad de Oro y Plata y la presencia del padre es en la edad de la confluencia que es al final de la Edad de Hierro, donde todo está muy mal.
Baba habla de esta nueva imagen del nido como el paraíso que ha sido creada para sus
hijos, un buen lugar confortable para que sus hijos se queden. Baba hace éste nido para
nosotros, a través de nosotros, así, el nido es el paraíso, y nosotros lo gobernaremos. Si
ustedes tienen fe firme ustedes se agarran con fuerza y lo aprovecharán. Así la clave es
morir en vida, eso significa, que lo que le sucede a una persona cuando muere ella pierde sus parientes, sus cosas, posesiones, todas las cosas del mundo que le daba una identidad, pero nosotros debemos hacerlo sin dejar el cuerpo, y funcionar como un observador desapegado, viviendo una vida de loto, mientras reclamamos la herencia ilimitada del Padre. Todo esto depende de dos cosas: una son los esfuerzos que hacen que dependen de su voluntad y comprensión y la otra es su fortuna que tiene que ver con su karma del pasado y con lo que está destinado para ustedes.Ustedes pueden verse profundamente y pueden sentir observándose a ustedes mismos qué es lo que está en su fortuna, en su destino y cuál estatus reclamarán. Baba toma el ejemplo de la hermana Prem que tenía una gran influencia en un número de gurús quiénes estaban muy impresionados por ella, pero Baba dijo que ellos no tienen la fe que éste es el padre ilimitado y ellos no se convierten en los héroes del padre. Y ésto es lo que Baba está buscando y para nosotros inspirar a la gente vertirse en sus héroes.
Hay mucha gente que acepta esto, piensan que es maravilloso pero luego de poco tiempo
ellos no lo aceptan más, ellos no piensan más que es correcto y regresan a su forma de
pensar. Luego Baba dice, a medida que las cosas avanzan y Brahma Kumaris progresa, se
hace más grande y con más influencia y la destrucción se acerca habrán visiones precisas verán exactamente quiénes son ustedes, verán quiénes son los demás, y si ustedes no hicieron lo que Baba les pidió hacer, no siguieron Shrimat, etcétera, no sé encontrarán en una buena condición y al final habrá gran arrepentimiento porque en ese momento no habrá nada que puedan hacer. Luego Baba dice no importa que éste es el drama y éste tiene su parte en el drama cada ciclo y ustedes tendrán visiones. El resultado será anunciado y se dirá, ese era su destino, esa era su fortuna, los resultados de los estudios serán anunciados y todos sabrán quién es quién. Baba dice, ésta es una escuela muy elevada y el único ser supremo les enseña, hay un solo estudio, un solo examen, por lo tanto, sigan avanzando al final irán una y otra vez en trance, así como al principio. Si uno no sigue el shrimat, entonces, no habrá fortuna, y se verá que hay malos presagios, que son una señal del karma negativo del pasado, pero a medida que avanzan estos presagios terminarán. Baba quiere que sean intensamente y profundamente puros esta Bharat ahora es completamente corrupta pero era pura y elevada y debe convertirse en eso de nuevo. Definitivamente Baba está estableciendo una civilización pura, nueva y quien venga y establezca una religión debe ser absolutamente puro y no importa cuál sea la reunión, siempre habrá el bien y el mal en cada situación hay el bien y el mal, habrá gente con menos fortuna otra con más fortuna, pero en el presente este mundo de Ravan está por terminar, se incendiara.
Algunos entenderán inmediatamente cuando sean golpeados con la flecha del conocimiento a otros les tomará más tiempo pero Baba dice, nunca pongan excusas. Soporten las tormentas de Maya y resistan los esfuerzos de Maya para hacerles olvidar quiénes son y a quién pertenecen, sean cuidadosos a no ser atraídos por cuerpos físicos la belleza física, su estado depende de su enfoque interior de mantener su conciencia de alma, el estado más elevado de conciencia y mantengan la fe de que esto es lo que son y esto es lo que está sucediendo.
La prueba de la fe de una persona es demostrada por el servicio que hace. Baba una y otra vez nos recuerda a que existió el mundo rico, el gorrión dorado el almacén de tesoros de toda la felicidad y ahora todos estamos haciendo esfuerzos para ir a esa misma tierra de la felicidad una vez más.
En la bendición: sirvan como un observador desapegado manteniendo la unicidad de su
nacimiento Brahmin, la unicidad de su nacimiento es divino, y éste nacimiento implica tener todas las relaciones con elUno, así nuestra unicidad es que somos diferentes del resto estamos solo con el Uno Él es nuestro compañero, a pesar de que somos compañeros de unos con otros en el servicio, es necesario tener el estado de observadores desapegados y Baba dice no dejen que haya el más mínimo servilismo hacia nadie. Mantengan su independencia y tomen la responsabilidad por ustedes mismos.
El eslogan: que sean un emperador libre de preocupaciones, como un equilibrio entre la
humildad y la autoridad en su vida y esto también indica el que sabe de no ser el sirviente de nadie y también conoce la arrogancia.

Om Shanti.

Murli Notes, September 4, 2018, Sister Denise

Baba is talking about the balance of the fire of yoga which destroys the sins and the arrows of knowledge which shoot down negative ideas that are also the origin of many of the sins.

There are two types of sins one is the kind that you are quite aware about.  It is sin to harm other people.  There is a second type of sin.  It is also a sin to propagate incorrect ideas which cause people to apply flawed moral logic that results in assuming a wrong action to be right.  This applies particularly to descriptions and definitions of God, souls and karma.  This also explains why, no matter how moral people may be, due to insufficient knowledge, they are unable to become free from sin.

Baba connects the balance of the fire of yoga and clear knowledge, with the creation of a high status and that too for many births in your future.  Baba takes us back to the basic essentials.  The original dharma of the soul.  Note that dharma does not always mean religion, but what you actually are.  A soul begins as still, silent, at peace, and then receives physical organs, the instrument of the body, through which to perform karma.  Thus, the body is secondary and the soul is primary.  Baba clarifies how we souls take the support of the body so that we can understand better how Shiv Baba, the bodiless Supreme Soul, takes the support of the body of Brahma Baba in order to speak to us.

Baba explains that we forget Baba is because we do not have sufficient practice.  It is necessary to spend a lot of time sitting practicing to detach from the body, practicing to connect with Shiv Baba in order for it to remain stable, steady and permanent, whilst  you are doing other activities.  In each Murli, Baba gives us the basics and reminds us: “I have told you who I am, I told you who you are, and I have told you the beginning the middle and the end of the world.”  This is a completely different way of understanding what humanity is and how the world proceeds, in comparison with what we receive from the scriptures or from regular education.

You will see in the Murli the word ‘infinite’ which is the translation of the word béant.   However, I would not use the word ‘infinite’, I would say a better translation is ‘indefinable.’  This is because the English expression for this tends to be that God is indefinable.  They say further that if you try to define God, no matter what definition you give, it will be wrong because God is indefinable.  Baba says this is not true.   Maybe you cannot define Me, but I can define Myself, and then explain Myself to you.

The English translation also says that the creation is ‘infinite’; infinite in the sense that it is never ending. The Hindi word béant, means that it does not have an end in time or space.  Also, because of the cyclical nature of creation, it doesn’t cease to exist.   When a person defines something physical, they delimit it.  It is difficult for people of linear thinking to define something which is non-linear.  Baba clarifies that, because people think God is indefinable, consequently He must be everywhere. However, that is faulty logic.   Baba points that out, which becomes an additional proof that He is not omnipresent.  The foundation of the concept of omnipresence is faulty logic.

Baba takes up the praise of God: Ek Onkar Satnam Karta Purush, which comes from the Guru Granth Sahib the religious scripture of the Sikh religion.  You will find many quotes from the Guru Granth Sahib.  The community of Sindhis that Brahma Baba and the original Bks came from would be familiar with quotes from both the Gita and from the Sikh scripture. Brahma Baba belonged to the Valabhacharee sect, that was a combination of Sikhism and Hinduism, where they believe in Vishnu, Krishna, and Lakshmi and Narayan as well as the Gita and the Guru Granth Sahib.

The expression “washes the dirty clothes” also comes from the Sikh scripture.  Baba takes up the expression ugly and beautiful: Shyam Sundar, which refers more accurately to the brightness of the soul when there is no eclipse of body consciousness, and the darkness or shadow of the vices that dims the brightness of the soul.  It is not so much a question of beauty and ugliness but of brightness and darkness or dimness.

Shiv Baba specifies the time of His coming.   it is only possible for Him to come when the path of devotion is at maximum, has reached its completion, and has finished everything that it had to do.  The time of Baba’s coming cannot be in the middle of the cycle, as many of the Hindu concepts present.  Rather, it can only be at the convergence of the end and the beginning.  Both the creation and the destruction occur at the time when God comes.  He can only come at the time when it is possible for there to be destruction and creation.  This can only take place at the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.  If He is here, it means we are at that time of destruction and new creation.

Baba describes the path of Bhakti as a maze.  You can neither find your way out of it, nor untangle it. Shiv Baba is the only one who can show you the way to come out, and give you a perspective that is distant enough for you to see the whole thing, and go beyond it.

Baba prepares the Brahmin community for Brahma Baba becoming avyakt.  Now the avyakt role is completed.  It is no longer happening and so we have the complete role of Sakar Baba and now the complete role of Avyakt Babdada.  He defines the avyakt form as that of a deity so the soul of Brahma Baba has temporarily come out of the cycle, he did not reincarnate.  He is the only soul who has that specialty so he has become equal to God and he has now effectively been functioning as a deity for nearly 50 years.  We have experienced that very extraordinary phenomenon.

Baba gives importance to the study and ability to communicate the information to others.  Your status is also based on your ability to work with the knowledge. The symbolism of the double crown of the deities means that one is the crown of light referring to purity, and the other is the crown of jewels, referring to the absorption of the jewels of knowledge.  Purity combined with the wisdom makes you fit to claim the status of a king.

Baba takes up the concept of dreams.  Anything that has gone into the past is experienced the way you experience a dream.   It is also said in gyan that your dreams are created by events of the past that come in to your mind during sleep.  Since that is the case, it must also be possible to have dreams of the future.  Due to the nature of the cycle of time, the future is the same as the distant past.

Baba specifies that calling him omnipresent is defamation.  How is it defamation?  Because the concept of omnipresence causes people to be unfocused, it prevents people from connecting with God, it causes people to become materialistic and to lose the power of discernment or discrimination.   That implies that it destroys your intelligence, therefore Baba presents it as an extremely negative concept.

Baba also warns that Maya will trouble us, but we should not be concerned, and just get on with our practice.  Baba connects the practice of spinning the cycle, rotating the cycle of the 84 births, and going through all the stages of sato rajo tamo, as the instrument to escape death.  Therefore it is important to consider the cycle as the key to achieving the awareness of immortality.   This is the key that enables you to leave the body without being taken by the claws of death.

Baba talks about the Third Eye as a form of intelligence by which one is able to comprehend matters that are so deep and so subtle that only God knows about them.  Only God can communicate such concepts to a human being, and that human being also has to be pure in order to absorb that information.   There is the deep secret of the Third Eye.  We have been given the Third Eye and we take care of it by maintaining our purity.

Baba says that people find it difficult to deal with the point of information that the flames of destruction emerge from this sacrificial fire of the knowledge of Rudra.   The destruction is ignited by the sacrificial fire of knowledge and yoga, because the yoga provokes absolute polarization of purity and impurity.  There is clarity about truth when there is perfect yoga and this causes everything negative to erupt, to burst and ultimately the effect is global causing generalized destruction.  When everything negative has reached its extreme, and the process of purification reaches its extreme, then there is generalized eruption.  Baba calls the destruction a task, something which is achieved through the power of purity, so the pure fire of yoga of the yagya of Rudra spits out everything that is negative which is an explosive process, akin to a chemical reaction.

On a smaller scale when anything extremely negative takes place in Baba’s yagya, Madhuban, a time comes when that gets spat out.   Baba has predicted that a time will come when Madhuban and the Brahmin world as a whole goes through intense purification.  Anything that is not pure or anyone there who is not practicing purity will not be able to stay there.  They will be spat out by that fire, like water spits when it hits a hot griddle.

In the blessing, Baba speaks about charity which is Punya not really charity as such, but the extremely pure karma that also finishes off negativity.   The highest pilgrimage place is Abu, the place where God had come, and where Brahma Baba had done tapasya.  Abu is the place of purest atmosphere, and when you come there, that atmosphere makes everything that pulls you down evaporate, and you swing in the swing of happiness and peace.  Coming to this land is also great fortune.

In the slogan, to enjoy the reality of what Baba is giving, you need to be knowledgeable and experienced. Do not worry about anything that you think might be bad or negative.  It is there simply to make us strong and experienced.  Being just a theoretical Bk is insufficient.

Om shanti
