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.
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.
Murli notes. August 23, 2018
Baba describes remembrance as a steep ladder. This implies that we have to rise above everything, including something that could take the form, shape and size of the Himalayan mountain range. The practice of keeping oneself up above is important for our ultimate tests.
Baba talks about love. As you may have heard me say many times, love is not a feeling but an attitude. Love for the father means to have a clear understanding that He is the source of what we need. If we get deviated by attraction to a person, place, or thing it implies that we did not understand what we receive from God. This is why it is said preet buddhi the intellect with love and vipreet buddhi the intellect, not that it has no love, but really it means the intellect filled with hatred. Hatred means that you do not understand God, you assume God to be something which He is not. This is also insulting to Him. Shiv Baba is telling us is what He actually is, and how we should be thinking of Him. Therefore, love for Him also means that we understand Him as He presents Himself to us. We do not mix our preconceptions and our former religious beliefs into it. If there is a mixture it implies that we do not understand Him accurately. Consequently we cannot connect to Him.
Baba emphasizes that this is our last birth, this is the end, our roles are finished, the play is finished, and everything is over. Baba used the word Samapti at the end of the last season. Many BKs are thinking about the meaning of ‘everything is over’. Certainly the avyakt role is over, the sakar role has been over since 1969. There is a lot of interest in the question: what is next? Most BKs consider that we require a much higher level of yoga. Considering yoga to be a practice that takes you high up above all the considerations of the world, including moral and ethical considerations, and to view the human world from God’s perspective in the soul world.
Baba talks about death. We are living a life where we have died already. He calls this Murjeeva janam It assumes that we are taking our support from God. Shiv Baba is our source. We do not take sustenance from the world. Baba compares the intellect with love and the intellect with hatred to the Yadavas (European people of the West) and Kauravas (Unenlightened Hindus of India). Kauravas are called those who have hatred for God, for truth, for reality, and are unwilling to consider it, or to act according to it. When Baba says we don’t have any connection with this world it is related to taking your sustenance from this world, your sense of identity and this world has full meaning for you. When you are dead whilst alive, it means that your meaning comes from the other side, the non material side, the side on which Baba is to be found.
With this practice of being dead whilst alive, many things happen. In the light of the knowledge of the world cycle, and reincarnation, we stop being afraid of death and we stop identifying with our body. We consider the body as an object that we use, and that will eventually be discarded. We are not alarmed about other people dying, because we know that everybody is a soul, and they will come back, and nothing can ever be lost. We understand that this is our last birth, that Shiv Baba comes only at the time of the end, the time of the destruction, and that we have done this many times. Shiv Baba says that He told us all this 5000 years ago and is telling us once again. Baba emphasizes that the confluence age, between the Iron Age and the Golden Age is the period of destruction. Baba calls destruction a task. That means it is creative work which is paradoxical.
At this time Baba gives importance to women, particularly to virgin girls – kumaris. The murli mentions the kumari who uplifts 21 clans. This is a well-known saying in India. However, it would be more accurate to say 21 generations. Whatever you do as Baba’s child, Baba’s student, as a yogi and follower of the Satguru, has an enormous impact on your biological relatives. Many are unaware about this because it is so subtle and often not discernible until many years later.
There is a connection with Christianity. The Virgin Mary is a Kumari and also the mother of Jesus. The Indian goddesses, the Shiv Shaktis are all virgins but they are also called mothers. Clearly, there is a connection between the spiritual meaning of the Indian goddesses and that of the virgin Mary, but it is not known by the Christians; at least I don’t think that they know.
The process of being dead whilst alive also impies the need to destroy attachment. Attachment arises when we take emotional support from a thing, place or person. Baba wants us to let go of that and be just as easy with or without it. This is the practice of the lotus life. You are in the world and not of the world. You are above the negativity of the world.
Baba says that knowledge is a matter of a second. You get a moment of clarity, a moment of enlightenment once you understand that you are a soul, that you belong to God, and you understand the cycle. It takes only a moment to grasp it, but a long time to finish off your karmic accounts, to overcome the resistance and inertia, and to create your fortune. This is why Baba makes the point about King Janak having come too late in the confluence age. He goes to the silver age because he did not have time to accumulate the yoga power, to study and to do the work of finishing off his outstanding karmic accounts.
The Brahma Kumaris experiencing a change of era now that Bapdada’s avyakt role is over. I think we will soon see well-known people coming to us. Many will come but they will not have enough time. They may take up the practice very intensively, but due to lack of time, they may not be able to reach what Baba calls the stage of the golden aged master or emperor.
Shiv Baba describes himself as Sarvashaktivan and this is translated as Almighty Authority. There are times when Baba talks of himself as the authority, but that is usually regarding the authority of knowledge. We have to understand that this means that he has all the power, he has all the powers, and that he knows everything so he is the full authority of knowledge. In English, we have this expression omniscient for knowing everything and omnipotent for having all the powers and that goes with the third word omnipresent. Baba says no I am not omnipresent but I am omniscient the authority of knowledge and I am omnipotent, the almighty.
In the early days of the Yagya, the Bks used to refer to Shiv Baba as Almighty Baba and they would use the word Baba for Brahma baba. Our love for Shiv Baba is connected with our recognition of Him. If we do not recognize God we cannot take benefit. The recognition and acting on that understanding is what Baba means by love. It also means that when you take your sustenance and support from Shiv Baba and not from anywhere else, it means you can focus exclusively on Him. Others whom you may have taken support from previously, are experienced as co-actors of the drama. You are no longer taking emotional support from them therefore you can let them go whenever you have to.
Baba compares Bks with different kinds of birds. Nightingales speak the knowledge very sweetly and everyone wants to listen. Parrots repeat what they have been told but they do not necessarily understand. There is a temple in south India of goddess Minakshi who has a parrot on her shoulder. Dadi Janki has compared herself with this goddess and says ‘I don’t tell you anything, I just repeat what I heard from Baba.’ Ccrows are people who fight and squabble. There are some like that. Pigeons make make a cooing sound, not saying anything in their own right but sound that one might make if you are agreeing with what you are hearing. The pigeon is associated with Parvati and the Story of Immortality. This story was never known because Parvati fell asleep. The sound of pigeons gave Shankar the impression she was listening. Baba asks us to compare ourselves with flowers: ‘do you have a beautiful form, color and fragrance. Evaluate yourself accordingly.
There is a story called The City of Darkness. In the city of darkness all things were the same price, everybody had an equal status. It resulted in absolute catastrophe. This famous story in the form of a poem is well known to Indian people who generally learn this at school. It is a reference to democracy. The murli uses the term the rule of the people by the people. Baba says the better form of governance is Monarchy. Everybody is unequal and Baba is establishing a kingdom. In the modern world we subscribe to the idea of democracy. The BK organization has to operate in a democratic manner but the yagya is a preparation for a kingdom. It is hierarchical but hierarchy does not imply tyranny.
The kings and queens of the late iron age were tyrannical and republics were established. Once the system of Monarchy is removed, it is replaced by a republic which may degenerate into military dictatorship which degenerates further into anarchy, civil war and destruction. Democracy is part of the process that leads to destruction, because particularly in India after the 1940s it could be corrupted very easily. Baba prefers monarchy. The Kings of India have to be spiritually as well as politically powerful, pure and serve the kingdom. The example of the raj rishi is given which refers to King Janak a great king and a renunciate. Baba often describes Raja Yoga as the practice needed now if you wish to become good rulers of the future.
Baba quotes the well-known phrase: ‘at the time of destruction, those who have intellects filled with love are victorious; at the time of destruction those whose intellects are filled with hatred will be destroyed.’ This ancient saying is expected to be played out in our life time, so this is something to think about.
To conclude, Baba reminds us that this is a competition. It is very elaborate and complex and only 8 will win, because only 8 reach the level of yoga of total detachment. They are not fazed by the different scenes of destruction. There are many opportunities to practice independence from the visible and tangible scenes of the drama.
Creating a high stage called the flying stage is accomplished through true detachment in soul consciousness, way above everything. Then no problem can bother you even if seems as big as the Himalayas. Perceive everything with the third eye of the divine intellect and you will also understand your reward.
The slogan is interesting. Those who respect everyone become ideals or archetypes. What does it mean to respect everyone. Is it possible to respect anyone if you don’t respect yourself? Think deeply about the meaning of being an ideal through this deep and extraordinary quality of respect.
Baba is talking deeply about what we do to sabotage our success. Baba begins in his traditional way by praising us a great deal and describing the reality of what we have become as a result of our relationship with him and that we have every possible cause for maximum success but yet at the same time there are certain things we do that sabotage it, so Baba goes into those details.
The main way we sabotage our success is to take credit for what we did. This sabotages our success because the only reason it is possible for us to have success is b following the instructions of Baba therefore the credit is due to Baba. If we take the credit or think “I am doing it” or “I have to do it” that weakens the action. Regardless of whether there is Maya, the atmosphere is not good, the company is not good or trivial or irrelevant thoughts are present, the instruction of Baba is to have the firm determined thought, recognition and understanding that Baba has given us the authority to go ahead and follow his instruction. We must do that, give Baba all the credit, rise above the atmosphere, not be concerned about the ways in which there can be obstacles or interference. Move forward and take the success.
Baba points to laziness and carelessness as a reason for lack of success. Baba has told us about specific methods to apply, and we need to be attentive to make sure that we do follow those methods accurately. Baba says stay in the fortress of being fully aware. Some things get in the way of this which Baba describes as an open door or window due to the lack of one or another power. Determination is a key ingredient.
One important point is that what we do should not be influenced by fear or concern for public opinion. Our strong connection with Baba, in the understanding that this is what Baba motivates us to move ahead with determination. This brings us happiness.
Determination is extremely powerful. It means to have one thought, total focus on that one thought, to move forward with that one thought and not let anything, anyone or any doubt or distraction get in the way. Then success is assured.
In the meeting with the groups Baba gives us further details about rotating the discuss of self realization. This is an instrument for destroying obstacles which arise from weak thoughts. Creating weak thoughts is the result doubt, questioning why and what. Create instead the elevated thoughts about who and what we are, then we move forward with success. Baba says it is the game of thought.
We must be attentive about what thoughts we produce and avoid thoughts like: “I don’t know whether this will work or not.” That is a sign of lack of faith. Firm determination, faith and self honor are all attributes of the method to achieve success.
Another important point is to become free from “I and mine,” to pass on the credit for your success to Baba and to be free from taking possession or feeling possessive about what you have done or your achievements. Doing this weakens you and reduces you to ordinariness. Instead, stay busy with the task and Maya cannot get in your way.
Baba says: sparkle and do what you have to do, and success will come after you. You will get cooperation from Baba when you have the company of Baba, you feel all the attainments, and Baba is with you. Make yourself unshakeable. Take full advantage and take everything that Baba is offering because you can, and you have the right to do that.
Talking to the German group Baba is reminding us of the word Baba. When you say “I” it doesn’t work so well when you say Baba it is like a magic word that makes everything function easily. Then you experience your fortune. Your connection with Baba and the sanskaras of recognition also make you special.
In the blessing Baba reminds us of the importance of the balance of serving the self and serving others. Balance makes you a conqueror of Maya. However, many Bks forget to serve the self, resulting in imbalance of service of the self and service of others. This deprives you of the feeling of success. Be careful to maintain the balance. Baba calls service an extroverted stage therefore stay introverted, and avoid getting caught up in the commotion of the clash of sanskaras and too much running around for service. Stay connected and go deep into the self.
The slogan is to water the seeds of all your specialties with your powers. If you don’t have powers, your specialties will not be able to flourish and grow. It is important to stand up for yourself, know what you have to do and get on and do it. Do not allow yourself to be discouraged by anyone or anything.
