Dear Embodiments of Love,

On this auspicious occasion of Guru Poornima, we are meeting again and we are expressing the gratitude to the whole guru principle which guided us all though this time, beyond time, beyond eternity and it has continued to take us forward as we move forward. We are not a part from Guru Tattwa, principle called guru. The principle called ‘guru’ exists inside us, within us, and this is driving us towards the ultimate realisation that we are one with the principle. Guru principle is you. You are the guru principle. The guru principle that rests in all beings is the soul element. And once we connect to the soul element, we are one with the guru principle. So this is the simple message of Guru Poornima. And while we walk this path, the path of spirituality, it does not matter which religion, which guru, which concept or which practice you do in life, to attain the highest possible in the human existence. It does not matter who you are, where you are, what you are or whether you are, but guru principle is always with you.
To tap into the guru principle, you have to have a few things which are extremely important, such as discipline. Discipline is simple. If you are not disciplined, it takes you further and further away from the principle called guru and it always makes you feel alienated. Alienation is the state of the mind. It does not exist. We are always one with the guru principle. You are always one with the guru. You are always one with the eternity, or the principle that guides us or maintains us. But sometimes mind comes forward, mind becomes overactive, and we feel we are separate from everything, separate from the guru, separate from the path, from the tradition, from what you want to be, from what you want to achieve. So, whenever you feel separated, understand that there is no discipline in your journey or your effort in reaching the Ultimate using the principle called guru. Guru principle could also come in human form. But human form is given only because you need someone to relate to, someone to talk to. The guru principle is everywhere. It is in the sun, it is in the moon, in the air, water, in every being around you we experience the principle called guru, the Guru Tattwa. So we are actually worshiping the Guru Tattwa today, on the auspicious occasion of Guru Poornima.

Once you have discipline, once you are fully disciplined and fully focused on the principle, and your effort to reach the principle, then the next comes consistency. Whatever you do, do it with consistency. There should be consistency. You can remove all your consistency when you become one with the guru principle then you’ll be fully bound by Guru Tattwa, principle itself. Until then, you need to have consistency. If you are not consistent in your practice, if you are not consistent in your guru, if you are not consistent in your message, or the message which guides you, or the path you follow, then it always leads to alienation. You will be separate from the tradition or the path or the guru. The more you wander, the more you alienate and get disillusioned. Eventually you would feel that you have earned nothing. This was all a wasted exercise. So be consistent.
And whenever you are walking this path of guru, or guru principle, always take firm conviction. You always take your time to understand the tradition. Take your time to understand the path. Take your time to check if this is good for you, or whether it suits you. If doesn’t you have every reason to discard it. But, while you are walking the path, have firm conviction. If you haven’t got firm conviction, it will not take you to desired destination. So a guru principle is available to you, it is within you and at the same time, if you don’t connect yourself to the guru principle, it cannot take you to desired destination, or desired result.

Tree-Faith-Conviction
Now, what does the guru need from you? Actually, the guru needs nothing from you. Guru is just like a road sign, or the electricity which is sitting in your wall, waiting to express itself. But you have to switch it on. You have to press the button. Then it displays its brilliance. The guru principle is similar, it is the principle which is available through time, always available to you, but you need to press the button. The button is first of all your willingness, your conviction, your consistency and your application. You need to apply. Otherwise you are expecting the guru to deliver everything over on to you, o give you in a plateau. It will not happen. Why will it not happen? Because in the guru principle you cannot interfere in anyone’s free will. Free will has been given ultimate or utmost importance in whole creation. You created your destiny, you created your life, you created your path. You chose everything, including your parents, your body, your character, your constitution, all these things are chosen by you. Now guru is coming just to guide you as a road sign to your ultimate destination. So while you are walking this path, guru can never interfere or change things which you have already chosen. But at the same time, when you surrender, when you are convinced that, for example, liberation is your ultimate aim, the Guru Tattwa, the principle called guru, will bring you everything which helps you to attain the liberation. Ultimate, complete liberation. But you must definitely take the step. If you do not take the step, no guru can help you. You can follow any guru you like, you can follow any path you like, but it’s all about being here, now. Being available. Availability is emptiness. Basically, if you are empty, you are available. You are being available just by being empty, being receptive. If you are filled with ideas, if you are filled with concepts, if you are filled with thoughts, and expectations, then guru can give you nothing. Guru is a living, walking, talking example of what you should be. A true guru who is connected to the source, is a real living example of who you actually are. Whatever you see in yourself is not your reality. These are relative realities. In relative realities, everything changes. But in the ultimate reality, there is only permanence. Stillness. Absolute stillness of the mind. Absolute oneness with the constitution, the truth. And we have a saying, ”Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram.” The truth is Shiva, Shiva is truth, and this is wonderful, this is beautiful. Whatever is true is permanent. And whatever is permanent is eternal. Eternal or it is Shiva.

Mohanji

So the principle called Shiva is exactly the principle called guru. And that guru, the principle, stays inside us. This is our soul principle. The principle called soul. This is one with us. This is the only aspect within us which is permanent and this is exactly where every guru leads you to. The guru is showing the way into yourself, connecting to your own soul. Once you connect to your own soul, you’re connected to the whole world, the whole universe. Every being operates from the level of the soul. But because there are differences, because there are cosmetic differences, like different body, different mind, different equipments, such as intellect, ego, the species differences, all these make us feel that we are separate from the other. This is the wrong identity, the wrong identification, this is exactly what the guru principle points at or tells you to look at. Once you are connected to the guru principle, all these differences will evaporate. They will dissolve, and then you will see the soul element within every being. When you see the soul element in every being, you cannot find differences. Like, if there is disturbance from outside, you cannot see the differences. It is an extension of ourselves. You will only see the extension of ourselves because the soul-wise we are related. Another body is creating sound, creating ripples in this canvas called existence, but you will feel that it is just like grumbling of your stomach sometimes, you know. This is the internal thing. You tend to accept it. When there is a problem inside our system, we will do something about it. We will tend to accept it, we will tend to overcome it, we will take some medicines, we will find some remedy, some cure. Likewise, the external disturbances will not matter to us because our extended entity is inside them. This is all our extended identification. Everything is us. There is no difference between a plant, a flower, an animal, a human being, the stars or the sun or the moon, no differences. This is all extension of our constitution, our consciousness, the oneness, the truth which is called the guru, the principle, is extended everywhere. And in that mode, you can never alienate yourself. You will be one with the whole cosmos, and you will be beautifully merging into the whole thing. Once you start experiencing that, you become the guru principle. The principle starts working through you.
The primary difference you will feel is that nothing affects you. The second difference that you will feel is that you will be fearless. You will have no idea what fear is because there is nothing to be afraid of. Third, you will feel that whether you exist or not, there is no difference because actually everything is you. You are always existing. The soul always exists. You will be identifying only with the soul, and that you will always exist beyond time and space. You will be one with the whole universe. We will have no differences between the gurus, or any beings, any beings of the universe we will find as one, same, all are one. And once we attain that state, we are the guru principle. And this you can experience.

Mohanji 3
I would say that we have spoken a lot between our last Guru Poornima message, which I did from America, to this one. So we have covered a lot of distance, many of you have attained great experiences, great evolution, which I am very happy about, I am proud of you. I would request all those who are following me in various countries one thing. Be consistent. And do not be too analytical about your experience, about your progress, about where you stand today, whether the meditation is helping, whether you are connected to Mohanji or not, it doesn’t matter, have faith. The pillar of our tradition is faith. You should have faith in yourself, which is your self, which means your soul, this is the permanent entity in you, which is always permanent, it can never change, it will never divert from its purpose. That is you. So if you are purpose-bound, your objective is clearly purpose-bound, nothing can thwart you from destination. Nothing can prevent your journey. You will be completely guided, you will be protected, and you will always attain your final destination. This is for sure. So your purpose should be very clear. And the purpose should not be ordinary. Not a few sensations. You can easily attain sensations. In meditation, there are various experiences happening, even if you are not meditating, if you are connecting to my consciousness, you may feel an elevation. If you are connecting to the guru consciousness and if you are connecting to your spine, you may experience so many changes within you. Even if you do hyperventilation, you could be touching the altered states of consciousness, but this is not the end. These experiences are only steps to the ultimate trip, ultimate journey. Destination is not these experiences. You need to cross over all these experiences and be one with god. And to be one with god, you should be one with yourself. So my request to all of you is to take time off and experience yourself. Experiencing yourself means first of all, acceptance. You need to accept yourself. You may have all sorts of thoughts about yourself, criticism about yourself, judgement about yourself, forget about all that. Be yourself. What you are today is what you are created yourself to be. This is exactly what you wanted to be. You may not have done that with conscious choice as you say, based on the consciousness or the conscience of the available state of mind which you have now. This is not you. This is just an expression of you. The available consciousness which you are operating on, or let’s say, the available awareness level which is chosen by you for a particular reason, because of the reason, because you wanted to experience a set of desires laid out over a period of time, using this awareness. This is why you chose it. So accept it. This is what you are. But understand yourself. Take your time, feel yourself. Feel life. Feel life more and more. When you feel yourself and feel life, you will stop judging people. You will stop criticising people. And you will be completely focused on purpose. Once you are completely focused on purpose, these emotions will take a back seat. Emotions will not worry you, bother you so much. It will be more on the intellect plane. Intellect is the subtler aspect of your mind. The subtler the aspect, the more powerful it becomes and the more consistent it becomes. Once you stop criticising, analysing, judging, or comparing yourself with other people, automatically, the intellect takes over. Once the intellect takes over, life is smoother. There will be a purpose-bound existence, and once the existence goes on purpose-bound, then you will be stronger and stronger, clearer and clearer. You will have absolute clarity. And also you will be peaceful. Shanti. This is exactly what we are looking for.

Mohanji 4

And in order to become peaceful, you need to have consistency, you should not enter into any kind of violence in thoughts, words, action. Even if they come, consider them as flowers and put them at the feet of the master, of your guru. Whenever there are negativities happening, collect them, take them in your hand, and put them at the feet of the master and say, ”It doesn’t mean to me. This is not mine.” Likewise, praises happen, ego develops, ego happens or aspects of ego you experience, take them all as flowers, and put them at the feet of the master. There is no comparison, there is no jealousy, there is no criticism, you will automatically raise your awareness, and awareness will grow and until you reach complete liberation. Complete liberation is a continuous task. Liberation has to happen from every aspect of your existence. Even your name, your fame, your habits, your vices, your good aspects. All these things are a part of your binding. You have to liberate yourself, you have to liberate from every aspect. Detach yourself from all that you think you are and start working towards or walking towards liberation. Liberation is worth it because we have been bound even without our knowledge all throughout our lifetimes. This is why we are here today. Why we are here today is because we have been bound by karma. We have been bound by destiny. Today, right now, we are bound by our destiny. This is exactly the blockage we are planning to remove. If you have to remove this, if you have to be free from all these aspects, you have to be consistent. You should have one purpose, clear purpose, and walk towards that purpose. The Guru Tattwa, the principle will guide you. It will help you. When you need the guru principle most, just like your shadow, it’s with you full-time. Always. So never underestimate the guru principle. Never feel that you are alienated. Guru is with you 100% , 24 hours, 365 days. Full-time. Just have faith. Trust and do not be bogged down or do not worry about the mannerisms or the superficial aspects of any guru who is in the human form. Because then you will never understand the consciousness. You will be stuck with the superficial. It’s easy because the senses always connect to the superficial. Senses are oriented towards the superficial. So when you are using your senses and mind, to recognise or understand or feel the principle called guru, you will never get there. You need to go beyond the senses, beyond the mind. To connect to the consciousness which operates through the principle called guru, who could also be in human form. Never make a mistake of judging a guru using your available understanding, or available awareness. You will never get to the real core of the principle.

Lead by example

Lead by example

So I wish all of you a great year ahead, from now, and let the glow, the energy, the brightness of the principle called guru brighten you, burn inside you and let this plane always remain inside your heart and let it shine forth. Lead by example. If you would like to convey something to the world, do it, live it. If you do not live it, if you just preach, it is just noise. It will not matter anything. It will not matter to the world. But if you live it, you are actually making a statement to the world. When you live what you believe in, you are making a statement to the world. This is much more appropriate, and this is much more important in today’s times. I wish all of you across the world who are connected to me, I love you, I love you deeply, and I am constantly with you and I am concerned about you. I care for you and I will remain so. You are connected to me just like one family. So, please, live harmony, please live love, unconditional love. These are the expressions of higher awareness. Live harmony. If there are differences, take a step towards solving it, sorting it out, making people understand that the life is short, there is no time for differences. We have great things to do for the world and help everybody without thinking, without discriminating, especially those who are helpless. This is our commitment and our responsibility to help the helpless. Always be available to help the helpless. When you help the helpless, you are actually supporting or you are explicitly performing the Tattwa, the principle called guru in you. So always do that. And I am one with you. I am not separate from you. I am always with you and you are always with me. We are eternally connected. We are soul-mates, that is why we came together. That is why we recognised each other. Remember this clearly. And let us be one family. Let us remain so. And let us be connected and let us evolve into the highest possible liberation in one lifetime. I thank you for listening and being here and once again, I love you and I am always with you. Happy Guru Poornima to all.

Overcome Anxiety, Anger, Alienation, Hurt, Tiredness, Disillusion

Dear All,
Here is the compilation of various questions  and Mohanji’s answers on Bless The World Yahoo group. Guided by higher consciousness,  Shahid Khatai was prompted to collect them all so that you also enjoy and benefit from these eternal truths that Mohanji tirelessly conveys through his teachings.
Love, BTW Team

Topics: What alienates, what connects to the source; state of confusion in crisis; how to tackle anxiety; being cheated or hurt; “so-called-control” of one’s life; why masters distract disciples or disillusion them; constant tiredness; dealing with anger

Mohanji 7

Go beyond your mind and catch the energy plane. There, you and I are one. Same energy. Same soul.

Q: What alienates me from you? Sometimes I feel connected. Sometimes I feel detached from you.

A: Doubts. Mind poses doubts which alienates people. Connection is the same at all times. Mind is not the same. Emotions are not the same at all times either. This is the difference that you are experiencing. Mind plays various games. It creates doubts, confusions, questions, faithlessness – and all these create alienation. Ego also alienates. Highly egoistic people are usually loners. Humble and kind people will never be alone. Kindness attracts. Ego alienates. So, in order to stay connected, you must go beyond your mind and catch the energy plane. There, you and I are one. Same energy. Same soul.

Q: So many things are bothering me. I am confused as to what I should do, in the current crisis.

A: You cannot change certain situations of life. Accept it. You cannot go to the past and rectify or change something that you had done earlier. Accept it. You cannot go to the future and do something there too. Accept it. All you have is NOW. The present time. You have this time in hand, along with the present facilities, current knowledge, infrastructure, time and space. Do your best NOW. When tomorrow happens, we will tackle it then. There is no benefit in harbouring anxieties, fears and regrets. These are all waste materials that you have been carrying on your shoulders, since generations. At least, in this life, you can consciously discard this burden. Can’t you? Regarding the crisis, you never created it. So, do not take ownership. The crisis has taken place and you are dragged into it. This means it was part of your karmic agenda to go through it. Go through it, in a non-attached way. This will not destroy you. This is just another phase. Even this will pass away.

Mohanji quote - Go through the crisis in a non-attached way, this will not destroy you. This is just another phase. Even this will pass away.

Q: How can we tackle anxiety?

A: Through Understanding. Through understanding of the truth or reality. Higher awareness is the only way. When we look from below, the mountain is unconquerable. For a mountain climber, that is only one of the challenges that he has encountered in the course of his life. He will conquer that too. It is the way you look at it. Anxiety happens due to the fear of unknown, or the unknown fears, especially about the future. Since the fear exists NOW, the future essentially becomes clouded. In other words, if we do not use our NOW wisely, the future will be murky. Understand that nothing belongs to us. Just look around. Your house, your car, the clothes that you wear, the transitory money in your hand, your own relatives, even your own body….. you own nothing. Everything came to you, to give you experiences and everything will leave you at some point of time or the other. Your body will be trashed too, after death. So, what is there to hold on to? Your soul. Only your soul, which is the only permanent entity in this impermanent world. So, all the wars, fight for possessions and power are all crap and useless. All are unnecessary. All you need is love. Just love. All anxieties will go. Whether you are anxious or not, the future will happen and you have to face your future. There is no escape. So, why don’t we face it bravely? Head on? That’s the way to live the life – like a KING.
Those who commit suicide are cowards. They have no future anyway. By ending this life, they might feel they escaped problems. Bigger karmic problems await them in the next life.

Mohanji quote - All you need is love

Q: I have had situations where those whom I trusted and loved, cheated me. I cannot forget this hurt. Please help me. (This is a long message, I am cutting it short to the point)

A: There are no co-incidences in life. If a certain situation happens to you, sub-consciously, you have attracted that situation to you. Situations happen in life. Allow it to happen. Do not attach yourself to the emotions attached to a situation. Emotion plus situation creates a file in your sub-conscious. Emotion is the glue that sticks the file of each situation to your sub-conscious. This stays in your hard drive and creates a reality again, in the future. So, understand that such an incident has taken place, understand that it was supposed to happen and it was no fault of yours, understand that there is no point in crying over spilled milk and spoil your tomorrows. Buy another bottle f milk and keep moving. Be objective. An incident took place. Fine. It’s over. Now, take the message out of the incident and keep it in your reference file. Discard the incident as dead and gone. Move on with better clarity and understanding. Past is past. Present is the only reality. Future is yet to be. Never stay in the past. Never stay with silly emotions. If someone cheated you with money, who knows, you may have owed him that money in another life and could never pay it in time. Or, understand money is transitory and it never stays in one place for long. It moves and you are only a temporary custodian. Another aspect of karma is that you can never choose not to pay a debt. So, pay and finish your payable.
You must forget the bad experience through higher understanding and acceptance. If you keep energizing your negative past, it is likely that it will happen again, one way or the other. This is because, you are reinforcing that reality through constant energizing. Lastly, you must also pardon all those who harmed you, as they came into your life to strengthen you, give you those experiences. One way or the other, all these gave you knowledge and further maturity.
Do not keep lot of expectations in relationship with others. The general society works on conditional love while saint and the almighty works on unconditional love. People will love you, provided you conform to their expectations. If you choose to be different or independent, they may not love you. Leave this room in all your relationships, so that, you will not be too depressed with people’s behaviours towards you. Take every smile and every kindness as gift from God and reciprocate appropriately. If it does not happen tomorrow, you must remain the same. This quality must essentially be cultivated. Avoid emotions from spoiling your day and also pulling you down. Understand that each person expresses himself in this world according to his character and conditioning. It may not be the same as ours. Allow, in your mind, room for that variety to exist. So, we will not be “hurt” with any kind of behaviour. If someone decides to walk naked in the street, we will not essentially do it. He expresses his culture, we will express ours. Bear this in mind.
God needs nothing from you. So, do not add stress to yourself on God’s sake. It is up to you to connect with God, for your own sake. God is unconditional. Everything belongs to Him. What more can you give Him?
So, be happy. Pardon all. Lead a pious life. Love all and respect all. You will be fine. God Bless All

 

Mohanji quote - we are all children of one energy...

 

Q: I have always been in control of my life. I always used to think well and take decisions. Off late, I seem to be losing confidence in myself. I believe the rapidly increasing age and market situations are the reason for it. Can you throw some light on this?

A: Be careful when you say that you have been in conscious control of your life. What factor of your existence have you actually controlled? Your heart beat? Respiration? Circulation? Digestion? Muscular movements? Thoughts? Pulse? Sleep? Situations? What have we controlled till now? We do not know what we will think the next moment until the thought come to pass. We know only on past tense basis. All the vital functions of our body are under the control of our sub-conscious mind. Thank God!!! We are saved from some fatal “forgetfulness”. Our conscious mind is not involved in any of the major functions of our body. Conscious mind recognizes a thought after it takes place. It does not have control on thoughts.
If we think that we are taking lots of decisions. Then again, look at its depth. We have no control on the climate, weather. We have no control on external situations. (And to a great extent our internal situations too, such as emotions and mood fluctuations, which often depend on other people’s behaviour too). So, at a given space, at a given time, with the given intellect, with the given status of mind and body, we either think, or talk or do certain things. Yet, we consider ourselves as ‘The doer”. This ownership over things or situations which are not at all ours, is the fundamental cause of many miseries in life.
This means, we have no responsibilities? Yes. We have limited responsibilities or perhaps, we have ‘grand’ responsibilities. One should understand who we actually are, while we are alive. In order to understand who we are, we go through many situations and trials and errors. Often, in most cases, only at the time of death, one understands who we actually are, and we are essentially the soul.  The next responsibility is to express our true nature. Our true nature is that of universal love with perfect awareness that the whole universe is within us and we are part of the whole universe. Third is to help others recognize the true nature of themselves. People have “herd instinct”. If one walks, everyone follows, not even considering if one’s destination suits the others. If you can responsibly detach another person to take strides on their own, and help live with awareness, your life is worth it.
Otherwise, at some point of time, we will lose this “so-called-control” and we will start feeling that there is something ‘wrong’ with us. The “wrong” is not with us. It is with our understanding. So, please understand that this feeling of control that you had entertained was indeed not existing. Secondly, the situations or circumstances made you feel that it did and you lived in that make-believe world for so long that you lost in touch with the ‘real’ reality. That’s all. Now, you are in the right track. You have recognized that there is something fundamentally wrong. This is the time for introspection. Now, you will understand that you had controlled nothing and you will develop gratitude for existence itself. You will see the commonality amongst all beings. All that moves on earth have the same soul running their body. You will recognize that soul inside all shapes. You will evolve higher.

Mohanji quote - whether a person is there or not you should remain the same

Q: Why do masters distract students or disillusion them?

A: A true master knows exactly what the student needs. He will distract the student to test his eligibility to receive the supposed knowledge. Also, he will check the maturity of every disciple to receive that knowledge. Many students come with their cups full with sundry knowledge. The master shakes them so much that the cups will become somewhat empty. Some cannot handle these shaking and they leave. Some stay on and evolve higher. Masters have also displayed strange behaviours which often distracted disciples. Some act like mad men. Some express seeming vices such as intoxicants, and the disciple’s expectation gets affected. These are done to eliminate conditionings. We are born and brought up with lots of conditionings. These are affecting our thought processes and alienating ourselves from our own true nature.
Shirdi Sai was initially considered as mad, until many people started getting benefitted from His grace.
Our conditioned mind often cannot understand a true master. Others also influence our thoughts. Negative thoughts breed fast and positive take time. If one of your friends, or even your own husband or wife did not like a particular Guru, they may distract you and you will eventually surrender. This is almost always the case. We compromise our own truth to others’ words and suffer eventually. A will of steel is essential here. First of all, the path should be clear. The track should be defined, such as Path of Devotion, Knowledge or Action. Then, once you find your master, once your internal churning has been completed about his stature, stick. Do not be doubting Thomases always. This is anti-evolution. It is true that along the path, you may reach higher masters. This is like after graduation, you are stepping into post-graduation. A new master welcomes you there. This is quite fine. This is evolution. There is absolute clarity here. This is a travel with gratitude for the path, the knowledge and evolution so far. This is how it should be. As I mentioned earlier, true masters are road signs. They never bind the traveller to themselves. True masters always liberate you. Guaranteed.

Q: Dear Mohanji, I always feel tired. I thought it is due to some medical issues. I did a thorough check up and found my physical conditions satisfactory. Still, I am feeling some kind of fatigue. Ever since I have been introduced to you, I have been observing you. You seem to have tremendous amount of energy to do many different things every day. Can you share the secret? What do you think is the reason for my constant fatigue?

A: If you are physically fit, you should be vigilant that your mind does not make your body sick. Mind is the culprit here. Fatigue happens due to two reasons. One is the oscillation of your mind between your past and the future, along with the attached fears and anxieties. This consumes a lot of energy. The energy loss gives you lethargy. You must counter it with action. Beat the fatigue with physical action. Play tennis or work yourself out and get tired. You will be surprised, that after a thorough workout, you will still be energetic.
The second reason is ennui. This means tiredness because of repetition. If you repeat anything for a very long period, especially a job, your mind will crave for a change. You will feel sick and tired of the sameness. This results in mental fatigue. You must counter it with a good hobby. You must develop a hobby which is close to your heart. That will be your active diversion. This will help you get out of ennui.
Always be aware of how much time you are spending only for yourself or your immediate family. Spend some time for the society and fellow beings too. You will always be energetic.
All of us have the same level of energy. I do not have anything special. My secret is, I have no fear or anxiety. I do not live for myself either. My requirements are very little. I do not have much expectations either. I do not even have a TV at home these days.
So, the energy that runs through my system is not wasted. This gives rhythm and continuity. Then, of course, all of you who are “observing” me, add to my purpose of existence.

Mohanji quote - Energise merits

Q: I cannot control my anger. Off late, I am losing my friends because of this. My family is also suffering. Can you help me?

A: Travel to the root cause for your anger. Mostly it is related to expectations. When your expectations about others are not met by the concerned people, you become upset. Why do you keep those expectations at all? Understand that other people are not here to serve you. They are here to exhaust their own karma. So, they will serve you only if it suits their karma. So, you do whatever possible to the best of your ability. When you delegate, always leave room for incomplete action and counter it with preventive action before the catastrophe takes place. Do not blame others and spoil relationships. Always take others’ assistance as bonus. This includes your family, wife, children and parents. Understand that all are karmic beings. They will only act out their karma. So, if you become too difficult, they will discard you. (If they can help it.Or they will suffer you, because they have no choice!!!) If you tackle expectation effectively, you can see your anger vanishing. It needs constant attention and consistent action till it becomes your habit.
Uncertainty about future and related anxiety also makes a man impatient. During such occasions, tell yourself “even this situation will pass away. Nothing stays for ever. I must remain calm”.
Ego is another cause. “How dare you do it to me?” “Who do you think I am” etc – such questions are all stemmed out of ego. The best way to tackle your ego is to do social service. Serve the poor and needy. This is equal to serving God. We only tend to look at those people who are higher than us or more materially successful than us. This creates anxieties and complexes within us. We must also look at those who are not as privileged as we are. This will give you equilibrium. Usually, very rich people are not those who help a lot of fellow beings. It is the so called “non-entities” that do a lot. So, understand it’s not the money that one spends. It’s the love and care that one expresses. You will win back all your friends and will have more friends in this world. Your family also will respect you because of your higher stature and kindness. Keep doing service for the world. Your life will improve considerably.
A young man saved a young lamb which was going to be slaughtered for meat. He is a student. He had many problems during his change over to adolescence and used to communicate with me. One day, while walking to his classes, he saw the cute lamb, tied to the post of a slaughter house. The lamb looked sad and lonely. He saw fear in its eyes. Even though there was food in front of him, it was not eating anything. It knew that in a few minutes, it will be killed. Suddenly, deep compassion woke up inside him. He met the slaughter house owner and requested him to sell the lamb to him. The owner refused at first saying that there is lot of demand for lamb meat, yet later, agreed for a rather high amount. The young man had no money. He went around, borrowed money from his friends and classmates, and finally bought the small lamb. He took it home, fed it, sheltered it and started bringing it up. This changed his life for ever. He writes “Mohanji, Suddenly, I have a definite purpose for my existence now. I know that many beings who are lonely and sad need me. I am better off than all of them. I will never eat meat ever again. Thank you, for your guidance and wisdom. Thank you for showing me the path. May you live long and guide thousands more like me. Whenever you need me, please call me and I will leave everything and join you.”
I quoted this to make you understand how your life can change, through positive actions. Does anyone think even for a moment before eating lamb meat or any meat for that matter that a poor and sad animal has died to give you its meat? If you cannot stop it, at least have gratitude. Pray for the poor creature who has been killed for your sake.
May God guide you to higher awareness.

Satsang with Mohanji in Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade Serbia, 3rd May, 2014

Seeing through the minds of the attendees, Mohanji started immediately answering questions that were hovering in people’s heads.

Mohanji

We keep a lot of stuff inside. We are collecting various things every moment and keeping them inside. We cannot know how much we have stored and eventually this makes us heavier and heavier in life. Every event every day leaves an impression in our system. Unless we let go of it we cannot evolve. Not only spiritually or terrestrially, we cannot change anything even in our daily life. We accumulated so much and unless we let go or leave them, we cannot be light. Why do we have to meditate at all? Actually we do not need meditation if our mind is completely with us – but our mind is scattered so much around us. We suffer because we cannot bring ourselves to ourselves. All of us are complete by ourselves. Nobody is higher or lower. The only difference is how much weight we carry. What is this weight that we carry? It is the weight of stored data such as things that happened in the past, emotions attached to people, situations and every aspect of life. This becomes very heavy. And if you look at your own life, you can see that it is a repetition over time. One thing repeats again and again over time. Our daily life is equal to past impressions. In sanskrit it is called purva samskara which means ‘past impressions’. What we collected in the past gets repeated as our reality in the present as well as future. What we are today is a bundle of our past impressions. You can see this very clearly in relationships. Sometimes we always attract wrong partnership. Many people suffer because of that. This is because impression is continuing through time and it just goes on and on. So, how do we sort it out? How do we release it? The first step is to be aware. Be aware that things are getting repeated through time. Be aware and if you don’t energize them and let go, they will go away. Second step is to LET GO. Let go of the time, people, places, incidents as dead things of the past and detach from it. Third step is to be in the present. Once you are clear about your thinking, talking, blocking your own life, you start detaching from it. That is why I say, spend some time with yourself. It is not even meditation. Try to understand yourself. What makes you angry? What makes you sad? What makes you agitated? What makes you hate people or hate a particular place or thing? Understand yourself. You must spend time with yourself. Let me tell you something. You may feel you are weak, but you are not weak ever in your life. What makes you weak is the mind. which is filled with concepts, collected from the past. I have not seen any meditation more powerful than observing yourself. That is more powerful than any meditation in your life. If you decide to spend time with yourself, just watch your thoughts, words, actions and understand yourself more and more. Explore yourself more, introspect. Especially when you become angry, when you become sad, or when you feel you are being ignored, when insecurities happen to you, just watch yourself. Keep watching. What is going on? Situations can be very bad, but you can still be powerful if you are with yourself. I’m not talking theories here. I’m talking from my own experience. When things were going wrong, everything was going wrong. At exactly that point in time, if we choose to be with ourselves, and if we choose to weather all storms, then we are successful. Success happens inside first. Richness is inside first before it becomes outside richness. If you are confident with yourself, in yourself, and if you are confident that you are one with yourself, everything else opens the doors. The doors get opened in every level. It is a job of mind to wander and be restless. But you are not the mind. So, minus the mind, you are very powerful. The more you entertain your mind, you become weak and tired, because the mind keeps you moving. Mind does not allow stillness and stillness is the nature of the soul.

Q: I’m talking about our near and dear ones. Our hospitals are contaminated with bacteria Clostridia. It is a very dangerous bacteria which doesn’t allow you to recover, and it brings the whole body into such a helpless state that you are on the verge of whether you will survive or not., and what you had gone to hospital for doesn’t have even a chance to be treated. I had been going through very difficult three months in my life and I don’t give up and it is not too difficult to me, but you go to hospital and don’t know whether your father is alive or not. How to help him? How to help your mother, your family?

A: In one word, lead by example. If you have found peace, express it. There is a reason for being born in a particular country, in a particular city, to a particular set of parents, and also for experience a particular set of events in life. Having said that, if it rains in Belgrade, all people walking in the streets will get wet. This is created by collective consciousness. The best way, e.g. if it is a disease, is to be treated. There is no other way. An illness must be treated. But you can prevent an illness in a few ways. First, an illness cannot touch you if you do not attract it. If you look at the world now, most of the countries suffer because of the insensitive lifestyle. The food industry itself is controlling people’s life. There are various aspects of our diseases created by the food. The vaccines that we have created are affecting our immune system, and there are numerous different aspects created by man. There are seven billion people in the world today and they are occupying the entire Earth. We have destroyed the nature, we have destroyed the immune system of the Earth because of the greed. There is a saying, ”If you control oil, through oil, you control countries. Through medicines, you can control people.“ This is what is happening in the world. There are numerous aspects of our existence that are beyond our control. Destruction has already happened.
God has given energy sources when life was given. One is sun, another one is water, third one is air. These three never pollute the Earth. A situation which has already happened is very difficult to change, but we can see people working with aids, and people with various diseases, completely protected and immune. It is individualistic when disease is attracted or maintained or we become immune. But what we could do is to energise situation, to become positive, to become fearless,
and when fears are completely avoided, because of awareness that you are a pure spirit, you are a pure soul and you are immune. Nothing can touch you. And if that kind of faith happens, if that kind of purity happens, there is 80% chance that you will survive. Faith in any god, any religion, is fine. But faith is important. Because faith can move mountains. Faith can heal. It is worth nurturing positiveness, especially when people are ill and they are suffering. It’s important to guide them to deep faith. It often changes the illness. There are people who recovered from cancer and various illnesses, out of sheer will power. The moment we surrender, we suffer. The moment we are confident that we are one with god, you don’t need any master or any priest to reach god. You are already connected to god. All you have to do is to feel god, to feel life, rather than look for a god outside of you, look within and be one with your consciousness, one with god.

an illness cannot touch you if you do not attract it.

An illness cannot touch you if you do not attract it.

Q: I have gone through dreams and failures to fulfill them, and I’ve fought many battles, my only goal now is to achieve inner peace. How to do that, to go to India, to an ashram, or what…?

A: I have already answered that. Actually the only way to reach yourself is to watch yourself, understand yourself, explore yourself. It’s worth it because you are a unique creation, you cannot have a general medicine. You are unique. Your creation is unique. Every being walking on earth is a unique creation. So understanding yourself, exploring yourself, being with yourself, not comparing with another person, this is fundamental, this is perpetual meditation. If you cannot be peaceful in Belgrade, you cannot be peaceful on Himalayas. Changing location with the same mind? You need to be peaceful. There is a saying, you can go to the sea because you love the sea, not because you hate the land. Some day you’ll have to come back. But you are welcome to our ashram :)

Q: If we have a gift of healing, if our teacher is telling us to charge for it and our heart says not to charge anything, what should we do?

A: I would feel that you can keep a donation box. Your time is valuable. Nobody can take your time for granted. There is a saying in scriptures, „Don’t take your time for granted because you have chosen a certain number of breaths to breathe before you took the birth. You have only that many breaths. So your time is valuable and that time is chosen, decided before birth. It is ok to charge, but sometimes if a poor person comes, he does not have money to pay, heal him free if you could. And if a person who has money comes, he can pay. You could probably keep a donation box and say, „Whatever you can, you can put it there.“ But time is valuable and gift is a gift. All people have power to heal. You can see animals healing themselves. They do. We have power to heal, so nurture it. It helps the world and the more you heal, the purer you become.

Q: Is it ok to receive as appreciation a hug, a kiss, or does it have to be something material?

A: Hug is always welcome :) You know, there is a science to it. The moment you hug, your heart chakra merges with the heart chakra of the other person and there is an energy transmission. So there is oneness, there is a feeling of togetherness, and it is usually said that if there is a tendency for depression, it goes away. This is also a science, not exactly spirituality, but it works. If you see a child before going to school or college, if mother or father kisses him or her on the third eye saying, ”You will do well“, they usually perform well. Because that kiss on the third eye immediately activates 72000 meridians in the body. You feel nice, you feel powerful. This is scientific and many people say it works. So kiss on the third eye has an immediate rejuvenating effect.

The moment you hug, your heart chakra merges with the heart chakra of the other person and there is an energy transmission.

The moment you hug, your heart chakra merges with the heart chakra of the other person and there is an energy transmission.

Q: Is enlightenment the aim of life on earth or each of us has a unique purpose and does this our purpose change through time?

A: Enlightenment is the purpose of the soul. This is mainly because the soul is trapped in the body. The soul wants liberation. So the soul will appreciate if you reduce the baggage. If there is no baggage, it’s enlightenment. But the purpose of the substratum which the soul carries, which we call character, our constitution, our body, our mind, our intellect, this whole combination is to experience earth and express our constitution on earth.
Every person is a bundle of karma. Number one is what provoked this birth, what provoked you to take this body from your first heartbeat till your last heartbeat. Second is that you have a collection of karma which is inherited from your family, from your lineage. Third is that we have collected the karma as we live the life. this includes, as we talked about it now, some of the diseases in the city and all these things collective. You can also see that you were born in one place, but live in another place. So all this is a part of inherited individual and collective. We are a combination of all three karmas, we cannot segregate them.
When you are looking at me, you see a physical image and the words I speak. These are only two dimensions of my existence. If you want to see my consciousness, you have to merge into my consciousness. That is when the exact understanding happens and that needs awareness. You have to increase your awareness, and connect to my consciousness. If you look at my cards, there are always eyes on them, eyes are a gateway to the consciousness. Eyes can never lie. They always carry the truth. And it transcends through lifetimes. If you connect to the consciousness, you will understand that you and I are One. There is no difference. Physically we are different. And you look at the physical form, we have so many differences. But the moment you connect to the consciousness, it’s 100% peace. It’s a beautiful feeling. We can read and understand lots of staff, there is plenty in the world. Even internet can give you many things. But if you do not digest them, they are just theories. They never help you to evolve. If you look at the whole spirituality, there is only one message: „You are that.“ Just one message. Whatever you are searching for in the world outside, that is you. If you understand that, you have understood the whole spirituality. And how do you know you are that? When you finished all the search outside, you become tired. Then you start thinking: „I’m not finding what I am looking for. Where is it?“ Then you slowly withdraw. Once your whole search ends, you find yourself. This is the whole spirituality. Whatever we do, or whatever we say, or whatever we practise, one day everything will stop and we become still. Then you know who you are. Until then, you only have a relative idea. You have not experienced yourself. The moment you experience yourself, you are totally in peace. There is nothing more to experience. These are fundamentals in spirituality.
In the path sometimes you get frustrated, sometimes you become angry and sometimes you feel you are not reaching anywhere, sometimes overwhelming love, sometimes overwhelming hatred, all emotions will come. This is all sitting in you. At that time, what people usually do, as they cannot change, they change the guru. :) But that is not a solution.
So, when you are going after god, nothing should stop you and you do not need a priest or anybody because you and god are already One. All you need is to understand that. Experience it. God can never be understood, god has to be experienced. First, before you experience god, you have to experience yourself. When you are going into silence more and more, what happens initially is that all the things which you have collected and stored in you will come out. So they will come and they will bother you. At that time you have to cling on further to the purpose. Whatever happens, do not deviate. And god is One, remember. God has no form, it’s pure energy. It doesn’t matter what name you give god, god is One. Until you catch god, do not stop. This is my advice to you because it’s worth it. A kind of things which you experienced once you achieve that energy, i can’t explain. It’s very difficult to explain. On travelling the spiritual path, more and more calamities can happen. But that is the time when you have to hold on the faith. And nothing should stop you until you achieve the highest. Whatever happens in the middle, let it be. Use this lifetime to reach the highest.
Second thing is that, the Law of attraction is equal to subtlety. You can attract wealth, you can attract anything provided you are operating in the subtlest possible. Body is the gross. Mind is still gross, you can feel it. You have to go beyond the body, beyond the mind, beyond the intellect and beyond the ego and you reach a state of stillness from where when you operate, if you operate, everything will come to you. You will have no shortage of anything. What you want, it will happen. But if the mind is operating, you cannot get everything, because mind keeps changing. Mind is never stable. If the earth is shaking, you cannot build anything on it. Like that, operating from the mind level, you cannot attract anything.

Mohanji giving shaktipat

The grace of shaktipat

One suggestion I always give around the world. Never miss the opportunity to be with a person of higher energy, higher vibration, higher frequency. Because just by being in the company of the beings of people who have touched the higher frequency, automatically you will be elevated. Just by being. One great master in India who’s not in the body now. He left his body in the 1900s. People asked him about his master, so he said, ”My master was great but he taught me nothing. Right from the morning till the evening I sat down and looked at him, and he gave me everything. This is very important to understand. Being in the company of people who have attained higher frequency, automatically raises our frequency. First thing is, do not judge. If you judge, you never understand. If you start judging another person even in our life, we stop understanding a person. We stop appreciating. We create walls.
Second thing is that in the spiritual path, you will get many sensations. As you evolve, you will have many experiences, many feelings, but I would always say, they are good, enjoy, but never lose the focus. Catch god. Do not lose your focus. You are not just to experience a sensation, you are here to experience god. Until you touch god, reach god, connect to god, don’t stop. Keep evolving. Nobody can stop you. You have the power, you have the resources, you are already that. Nothing can prevent you. So be yourself. Be as powerful as yourself. If at all you feel weak, understand, that is the mind at play. Mind is keeping you weak. You are not the mind. Mind is part of you. You can never be bound. You are born free, you will die free. In between do not allow your mind to conquer you, subdue you and make you feel weak. This is my message for you.

Love you all
M

You can never be bound. You are born free, you will die free. BLess you

You can never be bound. You are born free, you will die free. Bless you

Raise your vibrational level to connect to the higher

Q: Why is the shift taking place now?
A: Well, the shift is not taking place now. It is a gradual process, it has evolved into this kind of situation. According to me, the shift has started much earlier, at least in the last fifty years. It started becoming evident in the mid 1980s. Then it started triggering and it evolved almost in tune with technological era, technological revolution. It may more or less coincide that way. The momentum has increased slowly, slowly, slowly, and in 2012 the spinning of the Earth changed and it also coincided with the earthquake and tsunami that happened in Japan. That was a very major shake-up. Then there were five eclipses last year. These are all various aspects which change the structure of the things on the Earth. So the shift is basically the shift of consciousness. The shift is in the consciousness. All other things, the environment, the mindset, the speed of time, all these things aid the shift of consciousness. Those who cannot cope with the shift of consciousness, they fall into depression. They become more mind-oriented, they become more suffocated. You can say the shift is shifting from the mind to the awareness, to the consciousness. If you are still stuck with the mind, then it is very likely that you will suffer a lot (the emotions, the problems, the situations…). Everything will squeeze you. But the moment you come above the mind, in such a situation, then you will start experiencing freedom. You will start feeling freedom, the liberation. All these things happen when you are in the mode beyond the mind, beyond the intellect, beyond the restrictions of the body. Restriction means the space which is called the body, as mind, ego, intellect, all these things attached. Once you break free and you are able to go beyond it, then it’s a free flow. Then you will flow through time, flow through situations, whether they are good or bad it doesn’t matter. Flow through time, flow through situations and you will have a smooth journey. So, the shift has happened well before and it’s a continuation. I would say that even now, after 2012, it is continuing and probably in the middle of 2010s, probably 2016-2018, you will still see major shifts happening. This is a process. By 2022-2023, things would be settled down. Upheaval is happening, and to see the smooth flow, it will take further time. Because now the things are changing. Once the eruption happens and the things are moving, then it settles down over a period of time. The sky will be full of ash and smoke. So you won’t be able to see what’s going on. But it’s worth the journey. What helps this transit is faith. You say, “Ok, beyond the smoke and ash there is life. Once you know that we can move ahead, with faith, life is smooth. During this time the main thing to hold on is the faith. And ACT. Keep moving.

Q: Thank you. Is there any specific spiritual or physical practice to help us be in tune with the shift?
A: Being in NOW. Being in the present. That is perpetual meditation. When the path is slippery, when you are walking through slippery grounds, what would you do? You will hold on to something so that you are steady and you are moving. Like that, hold on to faith, and be in the present. This is the biggest and the best sadhana you can do during times of transition.

Q: And how to know that we are in tune with the shift?
A: You will know that whatever is happening outside, it is not affecting us inside. It is a clear sign of your progress. To achieve that kind of a state, you have to be objective. Extremely objective, “Things are happening. Fine. Let me handle it.” It is not like being emotional about it, crying over it, and blaming other people. All this should stop. Just stay focused. Just be. Just be in the present. And keep looking, “ Hey, who is suffocated now? The situation is here. Who is getting affected? If it is the mind, go beyond the mind. If it is ego, go beyond the ego. But be aware. Be aware of all this process, all that is happening in you and outside you. Just be aware. Just be aware all the time. And, “Things are happening, things are flowing, this person is giving me pain, this person is giving me pleasure, both are fine. Both are different flavours of life. This person is taking me to higher realms, another person is trying to pull me down.” Avoid the person who is pulling you down. Embrace the person who is taking you higher. If you move objectively like this, that is it. That is the practice you need to do. Be in the present. Accept the reality. Move on.

What helps this shift is faith. Hold on to faith and be in the present.

What helps this shift is faith. Hold on to faith and be in the present.

 

A few questions that are not related to the shift:

Q: I want to associate with positively advanced higher beings. How to do that?
A: It spontaneously happens when your frequency changes. Higher beings will come in contact with you when your frequency is higher. Even if you want to get in touch with higher beings, if your frequency does not match it, you will not even get connected! There are various television channels going on in the air. But there is a big limitation of your television to connect to each and everyone of them. Or, there are channels which you pay and subscribe to. You have to pay and subscribe to reach there. In this case, you need to increase your level of vibration, so that you can connect to the higher beings. A fifth class student is put into the post-graduation class. Do you think that child will be benefited? He will understand nothing. Once he grows up, and he increases his awareness level to the level of post-graduation, that time, if he is sitting in the post-graduation class, everything makes sense to him. Everything becomes meaningful. So this is the situation. If you would like to connect to the higher beings, increase your vibratory level. And to increase your vibratory level, you need to be extremely objective. You need to be in the now. You need to be in the level of acceptance. You need to have gratitude for everything. And life should be wonder-operated, you should be wonder-fuelled i.e. fuelled with wonder. That kind of life where, “Oh, this is a wonderful life, there is a lot of creation, not bagging on negative things, “Why is this man talking like this? Why is this person behaving like this? He should have done this way, he should have done that way!” Like this we are comparing, judging, criticising, censoring… This should stop, because these are all lower vibrations. It sucks you and pulls you and binds you in the lower vibration. You need to raise up. You need to go beyond. And then you reach a state where, “All these things are fine, but I have nothing to do with them. I choose to buy only love. I choose to “sell” only love, or, I choose to operate only in love.” When your unconditionality overflows, when your personality overflows, you will attract such crowd, such people. They come to you. Even people who are operating in the lower vibratory level, they will come to you and say, “Please, let us be together. So, you can choose to give them something. In that position when you are in position to deliver, you are more powerful. Automatically your power increases. Your connectivity becomes better. That way you move forward further. So, If you like to be in the company of higher beings, become one. Become a higher being. This is possible. Just by being, just by being objective, just by choosing to express only unconditional love, just by choosing not to be connected to any negative things and if you get a master of higher nature, never leave the master. Walk till the end of the road with the master. If a master is delivered, don’t sit down and criticise or compare or judge. Because that would be the biggest mistake you would be doing. If life gives you a master, if life allows you the company of any higher being, choose it, accept it, move with it till the end of the road. This is very important. The moment we start judging, we miss the whole point. Because we are judging from our frequency. The person whom you are going to ask is operating in another frequency. For example an avadhoota who is probably not even wearing clothes. He is walking in the street. You saw a person lying in the street in Vrindavan. You know, he is lying in the street for the last 16 years. When some people give him food, he eats. He is a very high being. In the normal standards of our community or society, he is a mad man, isn’t that so? Why does somebody have to lie in the rain and in the sun? And not even asking for food? The four dogs and the cow whom we fed, remember? These are all signs of higher beings. There is no discrimination. Even a dog or a cow. And there was a monkey who asked for food next to him… So, all these beings are one. The same consciousness, moving on. They are just different expressions in different bodies. How much peace we felt when we were sitting next to him! He was not even telling anything. But the consciousness was visible. Audible. Feelable. It was so, so striking. But, for an average seeker, he would mean nothing. You have to increase your level of vibration to understand this all operation level. It is good to choose or it is good to decide, “I need to be in the company of the higher masters.” But always ask yourself, “Am I preparing for it?” First is to avoid bad company. Bad company means company that pulls you down all the time, who feeds your mind with negative thoughts, who does not elevate you. Gossip is very easy because it is from the lower level. E.g. “Oh, why should he behave like this, why is he talking or behaving like this, why is he going to the pub, why is he going to the brothel or why is he going to eat this food, why is he going to eat that food, why is he wearing glasses, why is he wearing perfume, why is he wearing a watch…?” All these why, why, why will happen. All these WHYs will end. Then you are free. Then your mind is uncontaminated. Uncluttered. That is the time when you can start seeing the truth. The reality. The clutter, the smoke, the fog, should go out of your mind. And this is all created by impressions of the negative nature. “This is how it should be” thoughts. We have many concepts that create our thought process. These concepts should be completely extinct. It should be out of your system. And take life as it comes. Approach every moment or every situation objectively. “Oh, this is happening, let me handle it.” “This happened because of this man, I’m suffering ”, that is the wrong attitude, wrong understanding. You should think, “Ok, this is happening, let me take the next step now. Let me do what I can.” You can see this very well in animals. For example, a car-hit dog. The dog is injured. It cries for some time, because there is pain. Pain makes that cry. After one hour, if you helped it, fine. If not, and if you go after one hour and see, it will be handling the situation. It understood, “Ok, this is happening now, let me handle the situation.” And if you are able to help the dog, it will be very grateful. That is why I always say, help spontaneously. Don’t even think. If you find a problem with a dog, or bird, animal or a man, woman or a child, just help the way you can, spontaneously. Don’t think, “What can I do? Can I do this?” Just do what you can. So, this will all elevate you to the higher consciousness. As I said, awareness is the best investment possible in one’s life. Invest in awareness. How do you invest in awareness? Just start asking questions, “Is this expression my true expression? Am I delivering truth? Am I pretending? Am I masked? Have I put a masked on my face?” Ask such questions. And then things will start flowing. You will remove your past, you will start seeing with clarity, and then who comes in front of you will have meaning for you, whether it is good or bad, and you will handle your situation without crying. This is the way to go forward. You will also be able to say, “I do not want to participate in this nonsense. The “No” aspect will be sharpened because you are clear. Many people cannot say NO. They will take all the dirt because they cannot utter the word “no”. But once you are objective, you will say, “I like this, I can do it, and I don’t want that.” There is liberation. When you are not getting contaminated spontaneously, you have freedom. That is how you enjoy freedom. Be that. Be objective. Be free. Be elevated.

What is the garantee that you will be fine there? The same mind will start provoking questions and thoughts and problems in any place you go.

What is the guarantee that you will be fine there? The same mind will start provoking questions and thoughts and problems in any place you go.

Q: I don’t feel like anything except searching for wisdom. I want to move or run away from society, away from my professional work and relations. Any remedy, or should I face the consequences?
A: This is called escapism. Sheer escapism. You cannot run away into anything. Mind is telling so. What faculty in you is pushing you like this? Your mind. When the mind says, I don’t like this, I need to go elsewhere, what is the guarantee that you will be fine there? The same mind will start provoking questions and thoughts and problems in any place you go. Now you don’t like this because it’s routine, it’s creating boredom, fine. Go elsewhere, the same thing will start. Don’t think that spirituality can be enhanced through running away from realities. Instead, being in reality and being one with reality and operating in reality will enhance your spirituality. It doesn’t matter whether you are sitting in Himalayas or in busy places in Mumbai. You can still be spiritual. This is actually the thing inside. You can be completely spiritual. I’ll give you a small example. One person decided to leave everything and join an ashram, a guru. He went there and he saw that most people were sitting down and meditating so he also started meditating. Then every second day, they had to clean everything. The guru came and said, “Now, this group cleans the garden, this group cleans the temples, this group cleans the dormitories. A few groups were formed and they went around cleaning. Then this man said, “I didn’t come here for cleaning, I can do that at home!” Then the guru said, “No, this is the seva we do for this ashram.” And with a lot of difficulty he cleaned, but most of the time he was cheating on it. He was just pretending to be cleaning and he was not doing it. Then the guru said, “Today we are fasting.” So this man became very upset. He said, “No, no, no I don’t need to fast. I’m not interested in fasting. I only like to meditate, that is why I joined this ashram.” Then the guru said, “This day we need to detox. Fasting is just to detox. It is not for anything else.” At 10 o’clock in the morning he started having headaches and he fell unconscious, then the guru allowed him to have some food and he was ok. In one week’s time, by doing all this, he came to the guru and said, “Guruji, I thought the ashram life is much easier. There is a lot of peace here, we sit and meditate, at the right time we have food, at the right time we get up.” Then the guru said, “This is all fine, but what about your duty, your dharma? Seva? That should also happen simultaneously. Ashram is not for escapists. Ashram is really for those who want to evolve spiritually, and be focused. There is a single-point focus for one activity or one purpose. That purpose will take you further. That is why this ashram life is prescribed for some people. Ashram life cannot be for you. Then he went back. Because he could not stay in the ashram. He wouldn’t want to indulge in any of these seva activities like cleaning or cooking or anything. He just wanted to eat, sleep, read some books, and meditate. But that is escapism. No true ashrams allow you to be an escapist. No true ashrams will give you room for escapism. But it’s wrong understanding, “Oh, I don’t like this, is there an escape?” Where is the escape? You cannot escape from life! Then, what are we talking about? What are you escaping from? Wherever you go, whichever place you are in, you have to do what you have to do. We are not escaping from food, are we? We don’t escape from going to toilet. We mostly escape from taking bath but this is also essential because we are in the society. All these things are a part of us, so what are we talking about? Where are we going? I want to leave this job. Then what? You create sufficient sustenance even if you leave the job. Who will give you sustenance? You have to create your sustenance, right? Everybody is expected to work. Don’t think that gurus don’t do any job. Gurus work. They empower people, and they usually work more than normal people. They create various ways where people can understand some tough material in simple terms. They create much of baby food. This is work! And many of the gurus are deeply involved in sevas. This is work. It’s not that they are sitting idle and sitting quiet. Now if they are getting funds, funds are also used for serving people. Even if you give me ten meals, I can only eat one meal at a time. The more money you have, the more visibility you have, don’t think that the more you can consume. Greed can happen in every path, but it doesn’t take you anywhere. It is complete ignorance. Greed is equal to ignorance. So, that is not a solution. Thus leaving one place thinking the other is better, that is also ignorance. Wrong understanding. It cannot take you anywhere. This is the answer.

Sun, wind and water are natural energy resources that do not contaminate the Earth.  And we chose to use the oil...

Sun, wind and water are natural energy resources that do not contaminate the Earth. And we chose to use the oil…

Q: The current development all over the world is actually leading to destruction … How to go back to ancient systems e.g. free electrical energy? Not using and depleting fresh water, coal and oil, etc?
A: There has been an evolution in the thought process in the period of time. And it is mostly based on greed. The mighty always control. The mighty whether in terms of wealth, or in terms of political connection, power, they control the weaker. This has been the system going on. I’m not saying this is the ideal system, but it is the system we are experiencing. E.g. a person with power, runs over the not so powerful. This is continuously happening. So, to instill the awareness in people, or to bring forth the changes for the better, the awareness of the people should be increased. This has to start from top to the bottom and from the bottom to the top. This is a process. What happens is, in the past, people who were more sattwic and wiser, created so many things, but by the time technological upraising happened, the greed-based economies happened, e.g. ammunition is made to protect the country. But they have duration, an expiry date. So, what happens is, before their expiry date, they want to use it. War has to happen. Destruction has to happen. So, this kind of wrong understanding, wrong calculations, wrong moves, first of all, war creates pain. It creates agony. If people decide that peace is more important, no wars, that itself will cut down the expense on the military. And every country should cooperate for it. The politicians should feel for the people, for mothers, the children. They only look at their wealth. None of the politicians have gone down in today’s political world in economy, finance or in stature, whatever. Some scandals happened and they came affected. But they all started somewhere and they made much more money in months and years. Nobody has been doing service for the people. Politicians are supposed to serve the people. But more than serving, they have earned quite a lot. So in this kind of situations, what sells is what they are capturing. It is not what is good for people that they consider. What they consider is what makes profits, what is more beneficial for them. When rulers are like that, the society is already contaminated. And society is forced to feed to them. And manufacturers are controlling the politicians through bribe and through these things. When such a vicious circle is going on and on over a period of time, destruction has to happen in the civilisation. Because if free building through awareness cannot happen, awareness has to rise and rebuild the whole system, like I said earlier, the god-given energy resources are sun, wind and water. These are the god-given energy sources. None of these contaminate the Earth. We chose to take the oil. We chose to break the mountains. We chose to dig and the digging has affected the Earth. Because it’s puncturing the Earth too much. What will happen if that is the case? Destruction. Only destruction can happen. Then only things can be rebuilt. Because the Earth is already devastated a lot. In the last fifty years, the Earth has suffered more than ever in the human history. The last fifty years have made things worse for the Earth much more than any time of the human history. You can imagine that such an intensity of destruction, the rainforest going, the animals are losing habitats, thousands of species are wiped off, and cattle farming is producing more toxins in the air than any kind of situation… All these things. Especially the food industry. Food industry is contaminating the world. Because, two thirds of the total grain cultivation is going for cattle. And twelve pounds of grain produces one pound of flesh. So, suffering of the cattle on one side, wrong distribution of food, and people are starving. Some people are fighting obesity, on other places some people are starving, there is unequal distribution. All these things are created by man. When all these things are man-made, how do you solve this? You have to solve this through reconstruction. For reconstruction, there is sometimes need for destruction. So, destruction may need to come, and then, construction has to happen. If we cannot change, time changes you. If we do not change ourselves, time will change you. And this is happening, especially during the shift this is to be expected.

to instill the awareness in people, or to bring forth the changes for the better, the awareness of the people should be increased.

To bring forth the changes for the better, the awareness of the people should be increased.

Bless All

What is Happiness Worth?

My beloveds

          We wake up and run each day, to catch up with life. Precious moments are passing by. Stress is building up. We learn to hate more than we remember to love. We blame others for our own follies and create endless lists of enemies in our lifetimes. Truth is often misunderstood while masks are respected. We keep building relationships with masked faces and time after time, we get disillusioned as the masks prove false with time.

Image

          We wake up and sleep in ignorance. We sleep inside our concepts, fears, phobias, words and opinions. We wake up every morning, but never wake up in life. Our problems originated within us and not with others, even though we conveniently blame others. This is sheer ignorance. Where are we going wrong? Perhaps it is time to ask this question to yourself. What is real and what is fake? Am I faking at all? What in me is real? These questions may help you in times ahead.

          We are waking up and running after achievements, compelling commitments and seeming responsibilities, which are often acquired more out of ignorance than an inherited inevitability. This is especially so pertaining to our relationships. Everything in life is relative. Everything is temporary. Everything changes. Our relative responsibility should be definitely based on our actual capacity and not as per the positioning of the mind, based on external comparisons. (Usually with others, which adds to stress). Perhaps a few thoughts in this area might help you to streamline your life ahead. Am I over-doing it? Am I truly possessive about people, places and materials? Am I doing what I HAVE to do or what I LOVE to do? (In the context, the importance is always on what you HAVE to do rather than what you love to do) What am I chasing? Am I realistic? Am I just emotional and boring to other people? Am I just being judgmental when it is actually none of my business? Am I clear-headed or is my mind embalmed with emotions? Is my expectation becoming taller than Mount Everest in terms of life relationships? Am I binding people with expectations? Am I free? 

We wake up and enter the “pre-cast” stables of our own existence. The walking space is pre-determined by our own mind. We elbow each other for more space. But, the world is a mirror. It only gives you what you chose initially. Then our minds blame others for lesser space within oneself. Ignorance! Non-understanding! We created our own stables. We created our own existence. We created ourselves.

Image

If your existence is relative, if your level of external dependency is high, if you do not have an absolute existence, you are NOT FREE – irrespective of whether you are spiritual or not, according to you!

               Am I Free? This is the billion dollar question. When entering this life, you were. When exiting from this life, you could be. Are you free NOW? Why? Why Not? This is a question or a provocation for self-enquiry. This is a very important one too. One tip which may help your thoughts ahead – If your existence is relative, if your level of external dependency is high, if you do not have an absolute existence, you are NOT FREE – irrespective of whether you are spiritual or not, according to you!

What is HAPPINESS worth? Happiness is a state of mind. If happiness means inconvenience to others, if our happiness depends on others’ possessions, materials or even love, can we be really happy? If our happiness means the torture or death of our fellow beings or species on earth? If it means denial of something to others? If it means selfish pursuits? If it means ignorance, possessiveness and controlling others for our pleasure? Does our happiness include self-torture, mind-induced isolation, blame games and depression? Are you really free from YOURSELF? What is Happiness worth? Even if you conquer something on earth, how long can you hold it? Does true happiness lie in GIVING unconditionally? Can we actually own anything on earth? Then what are we chasing all the time from birth till death? What actually makes us happy? Is it our underlying and hidden character traits such as greed, sadism, cruelty, pessimism, insensitivity so on and so forth? Is it love and compassion and a rich heart? You need not answer me. Rather, ponder over it and fine tune yourself. This needs introspection, contemplation and positive action. It would be worth it if you could make a conscious search within yourself and feel how it is working in your own life! Selfishness, greed, suspicion, doubts, insecurities and hatred reduces us, our walking space, our peace of mind and even a good peaceful sleep at night. It contaminates our inner space and breeds diseases. It eventually makes us miserable.

Image

Some food for thought -

It might be worth countering each negative thought with a positive action. When anger happens, do an act of kindness. When hatred happens, get involved in compulsive acts of kindness. When insecurities happen, feed the poor. Take care of children from the streets. When doubts and dilemma take place in your inner space, feed the birds and animals, rescue and rehabilitate them from butchers or cruel owners. When anger is uncontrollable, indulge more and more in supporting forestation, plant trees, nurture them and help them grow. As they grow, your patience will also grow. Compulsive acts of kindness have far reaching effects. When you identify a set of people with negative thoughts, words and actions, collectively buy a space and start a sanctuary for poor, abandoned and rescued animals and birds. Feed them, treat them and nurture them. Play soothing, loving, melodious music to animals, birds, plants and listen to it with them. Feel the unconditional energies of the birds, animals, plants and nature. Nurture positivity. Remember, hatred binds while love liberates. We may not understand the constitution of another. We need not understand too. Yet, love can certainly work as a bridge between constitutions. Love is the remedy. Love heals. Love nurtures. Love protects. Love rejuvenates. Love expands. Love is all we need.

Image

I am just showing an objective mirror. I am just showing you some road signs. Your choice and freedom to witness or ignore is well respected.

I love you anyways.

Time is Precious

Dear All,
            It is human nature to be unconcerned about other people’s time. We often take it for granted. We all complain when our time is wasted, yet we do not care about wasting or misusing others’ time for our advantage. Many of us display utter selfishness in ignorance, without being aware that the cat of our basic nature is out of the bag! We often forget that the world is watching our display of selfishness. Many of us take it for granted that other people are free and here to serve us.

This message is to trigger an introspection. Are we selfish? Do we really care for others? Do we really care for Mohanji and His time? When we say we want to meet Him, do we really mean it or we are just articulating a probable remote desire for the sake of some special blessing for our selfish advantage? Do we ever care about His time? Do we care for him at all? Do we make ourselves eligible for His time? Are we doing anything for Him? Do we live His teachings or spread it to others? Do we help Him in any way to reduce his workload at all? Do we care? Do we understand? Do we come to Him with expectations when He has no expectations from us? Please keep this in mind, Mohanji does not need anything from anyone, He only makes himself available out of compassion. If you are lucky to have the real Master available, use His time well. He works more than all of us on several levels and always gives much more than He receives, consistently doing seva for all the beings of the world. This is a call to avoid taking anything on the Earth for granted, let alone the Master.

We, the Mohanji team around the world have found time and again how difficult it is to make the best use of Mohanji’s time, to control the visitors and even to optimize Mohanji’s time for the best advantage of everyone. He is increasingly becoming busy day by day. We have sadly seen people taking Him for granted. Some people do not turn up for programs and pretend as if they did not know and complain to that effect. Everyone understands pretenders, especially Mohanji. But, He just smiles and allows everyone to reach Him without any discrimination or time barrier and does His best to accommodate everyone as best as He can. There are times when He could barely catch some sleep for just about an hour or two and is still available for people without any expectations. He does not even ask for a dollar as dakshina. He does not charge for His time and becomes very happy like a child when people support charity initiatives. His needs are very limited. He is always happy with any kind gesture of any disciple. He is honest in his approach and sometimes as He says “a bitter pill cures faster”, and never stops at anything to relieve the people who contact Him to relieve their desires or their maladies. Whenever we tell him about the gross thanklessness of people who come to see him, He says, “Why do we care? We should not judge anyone. We must deliver with utmost purity and total dedication with good intention. My intention is total fulfillment of karma of those who approach us which releases them from bondage of desires. If they maintain gratitude and help our mission forward, it is well and good. If not, we should still be kind to them. Remember, When Jesus healed 10 leprosy patients, 9 of them left without even looking back at Him or thanking Him. Only one person just turned and looked back at Him. We are handling the same society, same kind of people through time. People will always remain self-oriented. This should not affect our thoughts and actions. We must deliver. Just deliver with absolute purity and dedication. Those who are meant to be with us, will be with us. Others will find some reason to leave us. We should not be affected”.
Mohanji never articulates his inconvenience. In a rare act, here He spells out his thoughts on those who take his time for granted.
Love,
BTW Global Team

Mohanji. Time is precious.  Don't take the master for granted

Dear Embodiments of Love

         I write this with utmost sincerity and no offence is intended against anyone. I thought it is the right time and a need of the hour to articulate it at least now. I shall explain a situation which will help you stay with the thought behind the story.

        Mr.H. (Due Respects) from Bahrain contacted me a couple of months ago expressing his desire to meet me (as he and his family are coming here for holidays). I agreed because I have no intended journeys to Bahrain at this point in time. He contacted me many times in between, stating that he is in various stages of his travels and that he is indeed looking forward to meeting me. I kept telling him not to bother calling so many times and could come whenever he could and I will accommodate the time.

Yesterday, literally 18 calls stating that he is at various locations sightseeing around the city and will drop in to see me at my parental home before he goes to the airport. I said he was welcome. Finally, he called me to state that due to excessive sightseeing with his family, he ran out of time and has to rush to the airport and hence cannot meet me. I wished him Bon Voyage and finally concluded this event. :) This incident and many such incidents are the provocation behind this public mail. I do not intend any offence to Mr H. particularly.

A few points:

A. Why is this urgency to meet me and why can’t you concentrate on sightseeing and other pleasures of life? I never called you to come nor did you pay for your time with me.

B. I never asked you to come and meet me. It was your own suggestion. Then why do you keep declaring your inconvenience? What about my inconvenience?

C. If you are cramming up so many things during a travel, leave appointments such as meeting me alone so that you would be more peaceful and it saves you and me from so many phone calls and your postponements and cancellations.

D. I feel that there is a general notion that all spiritual people or public figures are free and available for all at all times, or they have no work to do.

E. There are many such people for whom spirituality is their pastime or last preference. I have no objection towards that mind-set. But, leave me alone from your selfish pleasures!And please understand that I feel nothing for anyone’s acquired knowledge, both from books and other Gurus which they boast around as their own. I only respect the inner transformation which gets reflected in your daily life, such as non-violence, consistency, genuinity, truthfulness, respect, compassion, unconditional love, so on and so forth. So, please do not try to impress me with your theories.

F. Never fake respect. It shows sooner or later. Obviously there is no respect. If meeting me was truly important, you would have made it at any cost, as your first preference. 

G. And what really fascinated me was the final question, “Even if I cannot meet you, will you still bless me? Hope you will not curse me!!!!”

My friend – Why should I curse you? I have nothing to do with you. You have obviously something to do with me! I never invited you. You invited yourself to meet me. Now, how do you think that I will curse you? For what? What will I get by cursing you? I only feel pity  for your thinking so.

Mohanji blessingNo true guru or God curses anyone. Your own actions and thoughts become curses to you. Understand this clearly. I only bless all. It does not matter if you come and see me or not. I bless you the way you are, without expectations. And I need nothing from you. At least do not cheat your own mind. Do not fake devotion. If you decide not to fake devotion, it will help your spiritual journey. All these days, it was your guilt and fear speaking. That was making you call me so many times – asking you to meet me. It was definitely not your faith. Devotion never works without faith. Devotion without faith is like a body without soul. Be Aware.

People do not progress in spirituality because they fake it. I get many such calls and mails. “Oh, Mohanji, I want to come and meet you,” as if it is their last wish. But, they never move a finger to make it happen. Then they pretend as if they are pretty close to my consciousness. Stop Faking! Stop Pretending! That itself will help your spiritual evolution. I understand your faking clearly, but  I usually ignore it as it is none of my business. You only get what you deserve. Do not think that I do not understand.

This is the third time in one week such a thing has happened; seeking appointment, changing it numerous times and then not turning up. This is not only about me, when you want to meet anyone for any reason, keep your word or do not do it! Everyone’s time is valuable as is yours. Be aware. Do not think all people are jobless.

Hope you understand this and will comply.
Love You Always

M

Mohanji’s New Year Message for 2014

Happy New Year

Image

Beloved Embodiments of Love

              Another year has passed in linear time. We are constantly witnessing changes happening within us and outside of us. We have seen changes happening in Nature too. The years past have left their regular residue in our subconscious. The year to come will leave the same. But, we can choose and we must choose whether the residue should be of positive nature or negative. When we indulge indiscriminately and unconsciously in negative thoughts, words and actions, the residue that gets stored will be of negative nature. When we indulge in positive thoughts, words and actions, the residue left behind will be positive. Beware!

             There are New Year resolutions that people intensely decide upon, but usually never practice. I would recommend going with the flow of life rather than adopting resolutions that you cannot handle, which eventually breeds guilt, low self-esteem and lack of confidence in oneself. Flexibility should be the catch word for 2014-2018 at least. Spontaneity which comes along with flexibility will help you navigate a lot better. It will take you to your destination effortlessly. Be aware!


Image

We met many people in 2013. Some came to stay, some to test, some to taste and some to judge. We loved everyone. More varieties of people will come and touch our lives in 2014 and beyond. Those who are connected to the higher will understand the third dimension of others, while those who are connected to the senses will only witness the superficial image, mannerisms, personality traits and incompatibilities rather than the unity of consciousness. Such people will leave us sooner or later. So, do not be perturbed. Just be. Just be natural. Just be kind. Just be real all the time. There is nothing to prove in this world. If you want to prove something at all, prove that you are truly a human being, by being kind, considerate, compassionate and genuinely good at heart. Be a human being by making the world a better place. Today, the world does not need preachers. The world needs those who can lead by example of unconditional love beyond all man-made barriers. All barriers are primarily in our own mind. Then this gets reflected outside. Inflexibility and intolerance are in our own mind. When this becomes an external war, Nature suffers. Beware!

             Transition has happened with the changed speed of earth. Time is beginning and ending simultaneously in front of our eyes at shut-eye speed. People are taking birth and getting cremated at a high speed. Remember this. We own nothing here. This is our place of action for our own personal gratification. This is our karma bhoomi. This is our place for fulfilment. Respect it and deal with it that way. We have no rights on earth. Or at least, we have no special rights on earth, apart from beings of other species. Gratification affordable using the available space and time on earth is all that we can achieve out of this place. If you try to own anything here and decide that you are indeed the owner of all your possessions, understand that all that you will eventually own are the sorrows of separation which happens to anyone who possesses anything sooner or later. If you understand this clearly, all your sorrows will vanish. All your anxieties and fears will vanish. You will be happy with what you have and you will live in the moment with the perfect happiness of being here and being alive today. More possessiveness means more sorrows. Beware!

               Time has shifted and its effects are made visible through calamities on earth as well as changing mind sets. People crave liberation and fortunately nature is indeed aiding it. People crave freedom from themselves and it is possible if they turn inward instead of outward. Transformation is happening and settling in more than before. There are hardware crashes taking place rampantly. Ideas, notions, concepts and sundry conditionings of the human mind are getting crashed and in some cases re-moulded. Those who are connected to the supreme with or without a guide are gaining ground rapidly towards total merger with the supreme consciousness. Those who stay within their mind barriers are rapidly falling out of the system into deeper disillusionment. So, this is a very interesting time and the time pushes you to introspect. It makes you see within. It crashes your ego. It makes you so unstable that you have no choice but to change. It’s a good time to be yourself and accept yourself. Good time for you to consider who you are, where you stand and also why you are here. Those who are totally selfish and self-centered are bound to take the stick. They will experience loss and suffering one way or the other. Those who only think of themselves and their families and shun the pains of the world outside will become more lonely and isolated. Those who become one with the world and do what they can for the betterment of the world inside and outside of them will be guided, guarded and assisted. Being universal is the call of the time. Being self-centered is a sure recipe for failure. Beware!

You can cleanse your inner world by doing good to the world outside of you. When the inner world is clean and spotless, the outside world will benefit from it. Be Aware.

Unfortunately, the world that we know around us, operates much on pretensions because of the judging nature of the society. Society tends to judge every person and situation using its conditioned vision. This is scary for many. Hence they wear the masks suitable for social acceptance. Understand and discard all your masks this year. Come out and be real. If you can live an unpretentious life, it will be the biggest gift that you could ever give yourself. Tear off your masks and break free. Be real. Be yourself. Be the true you. Be conscious of your lies of existence – the very lies that are pampering your egocentric social image and binding you with invisible chains. Break Free from everything. You can! This is the biggest new year gift that you can give yourself. 

Bless you, your larger family and all those whom you love or hate, wishing all the very best in the years to come. Come together as one family. Come together beyond species and lives of the universe and spread kindness indiscriminately. Give more and more love. Give more and more compassion. Give! Bless you with the attitude of giving. Bless you with selflessness. This is the sure remedy which will heal all wounds and take you to the highest realms of human achievement. The greatest achievement is a life lived with non-violence in thoughts, words and actions. Be love and give love. Bless You.

Love You Always

M

 

(The next day, on 1st January, after numerous questions to Mohanji to suggest a New Year resolution… he has given a general answer to all):

Nevertheless, two things I would like to consider as a resolution for your liberated future:
A. Give back to mother Earth much more than what you have already consumed from her and will consume further as long as you live here from now on.
B. Maintain your inner space tidy and clean by being kind, unpretentious, gossip free, soap opera free, living the acts of kindness, spontaneously compassionate, unconditionally loving and non-violent in thoughts, words and actions and by traveling inward much more than the outer world. Be happy and peaceful with what you have been provided and learn to share rather than hoard. Sharing enhances you. Hoarding diminishes you. Share inner and outer wealth with others. Share experiences. Share joy.
These would take you a long way in spiritual elevation much more than hours of spiritual practices and visits to places of worship. Guaranteed!

Skype Satsang with Mohanji in Serbia on 26th October, 2013

Skype Satsang with Mohanji in Serbia on 26th October, 2013

Mohanji. Hug. Andrevlje, Fruska gora national park. Mohanji Lifestyle Retreat 2013

Q: I would like to ask about free will and decisions in everyday life. To be spontaneous and be like a river is an imperative of our spiritual life, but we cannot be totally passive in that. We sometimes have to do something with all respect for god’s will. Even if we have faith in existence, we are in position to act, but we often have dilemma, whether to go right or left. So, how to cover this gap? Could you tell us about free will in everyday life?

A: Free will in everyday life is more or less like a myth. When we were in our last life, we gathered a lot of emotions, desires, understandings, misunderstandings. All these things put together created karma in this life. Before we started this journey, before we took this birth, we clearly decided, these are desires, these are emotions, these are materials that we want to experience in this new life. When we thus decided, we almost completely gave up free will. Because we chose from our first heartbeat to our last heartbeat, where we will be born, to which kind of parents, what sort of experiences, the place, the education, relationships, all these things we actually decided before we came here. This is why we are born in a particular place, to a particular set of parents, and we have certain taste, education, some people like to do yoga, some people like to do sports, play tennis… all these qualities, all these characteristics we chose before we came. That is why our children have distinct characteristics. They are very clear about what they want, more or less they have a clear character. This is because they had chosen it before. So, to live now, the understanding we need to have is that whatever we are experiencing today, is what we have chosen. And whatever we will experience tomorrow, is what we have chosen. At the same time, we can choose one thing: we can chose not to accumulate more desires, more emotions while we are living. This is our advantage, this is free will. If you want to stop accumulating more desires and more emotions, i.e. you should have complete understanding about your daily life, your now. That means acceptance of every day as it is and no resistance, no storage of emotions, whatever comes to us just let it come and go. We remain always clean and pure. If we can operate on that level, there will be no accumulation of new desires and new emotions. That is exactly our free will. Our free will today is not to have further emotions, further desires. When we are enjoying and experiencing everyday activity, our mind is completely here, in the present, enjoying that activity fully and experiencing an event fully, completely, so that we are satisfied, fulfilled each moment, that is exactly the free will that we have.

There is also one more thing. When you lose interest in something and you say, “Ok, I had enough of this experience, I’m fine, I’m happy,” including relationship, that desire and that emotion also get dropped. That is also a free will while living. This is the only free will we can operate on because we have chosen our lifespan, how long we will live, we have chosen our activity and all the qualities of our activity, our character, our shape, country, culture, even the food we  consume, the taste we enjoy, all these things were decided before.

So, your free will is: 1. do not accumulate any more, 2. you can always grow over an emotion, grow over a taste and say, “I had sufficient of it, I don’t need any more,” that

drops off so that you are liberated more and more. Each moment you can liberate yourself.

 Mohanji looking at the horizon in Jammu

Q: You said we should accept everything that comes our way, and that we should totally accept it, then you said something about enjoying it, but what if the experience is very bad or very painful, should we also totally accept that?

A: If an experience is painful, understand where the pain exists. The pain exists only in waking state mind. It cannot be translated into your dream state, nor can it be moved to your deep sleep state. The mind which is conditioned with so much of our education, culture, upbringing basically, that is the mind which gives the suffering. Emotional suffering is always related to mind. But we can understand, “Ok, this is coming and going, but we are not bound by people, personalities, time, space, situations, country, culture, nothing. Because we just experience that. We are experiencing and we are moving on. As an effect, nothing can bind us, nothing can conquer us, because we are free, right from birth to death.” But mind does not allow us to be free most of the time. Mind will say, “This is injustice, this should not happen. This should be different.” And we always manipulate based on mind’s opinions. That is the time when suffering happens. Otherwise, we could say, “Ok, I had a relationship which was not my taste, it didn’t suit me. Let me go away.” Like that, we can step aside and watch the whole show. At that point in time, we are very powerful. We cannot be defeated. Mind actually pulls us down but if we use our intellect and understand that all these things are passing  and they cannot bind us, with that clear understanding if you move, everything is just experience. Everything is just experience, there is no pepper or salt in it.

Q: If free will is a myth, what is the purpose of life then? Why are we here? If everything is predestined, what are we doing here, on the Earth?

A:  Simple, what you are experiencing today, that experience is what you have chosen. That is why you are here. It is almost like an automatic mode. We have clear understanding of all our thoughts, words, actions, and we do not keep emotions with them, we will not come back. But what happens is we resist, we have anger, we have anxiety, we have fear,  we have love, it’s all a mixture of all these, and this comes out as desire. For example, one man is telling a woman, “I love you so much! I would like to be your son in the next life” or “If only I was your son!” The desire becomes very strong and the relationship has to materialize in another life. This is how we create our destiny. Likewise, two people are fighting, and one person says, “I will kill you! I will surely kill you!” and they become very angry with each other. But if they could not complete that anger with each other or sort it out, unconsciously they will come back again in the next life as brothers or brother and sister, or father and son… and there will be a big fight in the family, because the anger transferred. So, unconsciously we are creating our destiny, and when after our death from this life we are preparing for the next life, this agenda we have, of our desires, of what we would like to achieve within one lifetime. This is clearly defined and decided and laid out in that plane between the death and the new birth. That is the time when the whole format is made. And while the format is being made you have full free will, only free will. But once you say, “This is what I want to do, I’ve created my agenda” and then you close it, you cannot change it. So, unconsciously we are creating our lifetimes. But while living, we never understand that. People cannot meet if there is no karma behind it. You will not listen to me if there is no karma behind it.

Q: Does soul have to experience all that?

A: Soul does not experience, soul is like a petrol in the car, it just helps the journey. It is not deciding the destination. Each soul has a different set of experience because each soul operates a different body. The same food will be different for different people, some people say this is good, some people say this is not good.  Food is the same, but the taste is different. That is why each soul operates as a different machine, different body.

Q: I was in a conflict with someone and I’m aware of our different opinions, different attitudes towards life, and I try to detach, but that person is attached to me. Do I have to be born again just because that person is emotionally involved with me?

A: Yes, actually this is the complication of life. Maybe you got out of it, but that other person may not have got out of it. It is important to nurture it in such a way that you slowly have to take his hand and put it somewhere else. You have to divert that person’s attention to something else. Because what happens is, one person is completely relieved or detached, but the other person still holds on. It means the hook is still on your flesh so it is important to detach slowly, slowly with understanding, awareness, and make them feel just like the mother slowly, slowly detaches the child from having the milk, similarly you have to slowly, slowly detach that person. People are children.

Q: The more I try, the angrier or the more frustrated he gets.

A: You have to handle it carefully because this is life and emotion. Make that person realize that this is over…as if somebody dies and goes. What would you do? You cannot do anything, right? That stops there. Like that, we have to handle the relationship in such a way that the other person is very clear that it cannot continue or change the pattern of relationship. For example, suddenly you become motherly or something else, that doesn’t suit the other person and the person says, “Ok, now the relationship has changed.” Like certain people after divorce continue to be good friends, so the old emotions do not exist any more. I’ve seen many people like that. We have to turn the relationship in such a way that it relieves you, detaches you, liberates you.

 Mohanji. First talk in America 1

Q: If someone has a health problem in this life which is a problem from past life, does this person have to suffer from this illness the whole life or can he or she be somehow healed?

A: I would say that both if somebody does something good to you, try to compensate in some way. I normally pay people or do something for them if they do something for me, so that it gets equalized. Likewise, if it’s hurt, I wouldn’t recommend hurting the other person because that continues. If somebody hurts you, you hurt them back, then again they hurt you… Because this is an ego issue. My suggestion is that the best thing to counter any kind of hurt is through love. You can definitely say if you are happy, by doing this if you feel satisfied. Or we can deal with the whole situation with lot more maturity, using the brain, so that it stops there. I was telling one person who was writing a letter saying a lot of bad things about the other person. I suggested a reply saying, “Thank you very much for letting me know, but my love cannot change.” That stopped the communication. There is no further argument, no further discussion. So it is better to cut short something negative as early as possible. But the good thing, make it continue.

Physical illness is a result of emotions. When you trap emotions, it becomes physical later. It is important to let go, relax and leave it, so that even the diseases may not materialize or manifest, as much as you could. Many times diseases are kept and captured by emotions, our mind.

Bless You All

My Christmas Message Forever

Dearest Embodiments of Love,

              Wish Each and Everyone of you a Merry Christmas. Wish You the taste of Christ Consciousness. The consciousness that is all-encompassing; the consciousness that expresses itself only through Unconditional Love, Compassion beyond gender and species barriers, kindness that transcends time and space, profound, unbending selflessness rooted in truth of existence and beyond any man-made barriers. I wish you that. This was the stature and state of Jesus whom the world adores today. But, do we take the time to merge into the consciousness that he represented at all?

jesus-1

 

If we do, there cannot be any wars in the world. There cannot be any torture, killing, possessiveness or even manipulation of any being of any species on earth. There can only be peace, love and kindness in this world. Please do consider this point, as we toast in the name of Jesus and wish everyone abundantly.

Whenever mind trips and falls into fake behavior patterns, pretensions, untruth, selfishness, greed, possessiveness, anger, hatred and emotions that are negative in nature, may you have the power to think and consider who you actually are and what consciousness is available to you, at your disposal at all times! You are embodiments of love. You do possess the Christ consciousness. It is the same as Krishna Consciousness, Buddha consciousness and the God-consciousness.

Jesus Consciousness

All negativities are just acquired masks from this existence. They are not the real you. They can never be you because negativities bind you and inflict suffering on you and others. You are one with your father – the God-consciousness. The potential for the kingdom of the supreme father is within you. That kingdom is God-consciousness or God-head. The God-head is within you. God-head is not outside of you. Consider this truth deeply and contemplate on it. Remember this always.

When you become one with the consciousness of the father, fears disappear and peace descends into the core of your existence. Confidence and conviction take the place of fears and anxieties. Karmas disintegrate.

External negative elements can only destroy the temple (body), they cannot lay their hands on the deity (the soul). We are the soul, wearing this body for a specific duration. We are just acting the role of whatever we seem to be in this world. This role is temporary. Even this will pass.

This conviction and the unity consciousness with God will make you powerful, invincible. Your conviction will help you endure all calamities of life. Nothing else becomes any more significant than this truth that you experience, that you and God are ONE.

You and God are ONE

You and God are ONE

I wrote a blog on the conviction of a purpose-bound soul, a while ago. Perhaps it might be interesting for you to go through it, once again – Enjoy…http://pkmohan.wordpress.com/2009/10/24/conviction-passion/

 

Where is the kingdom of God? The answer is – it is well within you. You are creating heaven and hell though your thoughts, words and actions. Even through thoughts, if you create agony, it stays as a potential calamity for the future, in the canvass of existence. Thought is the first level of creation. When you argue, vent emotions and fight, those words lead to decay in conscience. Insensitivity, sadism, cruelty and violence of all kinds lead to sorrows. They lead to illness, and disappointments. Collective consciousness of society, especially if it is predominantly negative in nature, brings forth such effects. When corruption, contamination, greed, lust and selfishness wreak havoc in the minds of common men, calamities happen in society. A selfish society creates selfish rulers. Selfish rulers exploit the selfish society. This is the vicious cycle that we are experiencing today. Greed is ruling.

Christ and the Apostles

Christ and the Apostles

A saint is crucified because he tells the truth and truth hurts many. It pricks the conscience of many minds in society. The selfish society is more worried about with whom the saint slept with, instead of the truths he revealed or the positiveness that he delivered to society. (Perhaps a book contemplating on whether Jesus slept with Mary Magdalene or not may sell much more than a book on the truth that he stood for!!!) Anyone who delivers positiveness into the society is indeed an angel of God. They need to be supported, nurtured and respected. In today’s society, when negativity is the norm of life, anyone and everyone who brings positiveness and liberation to anyone and everyone should be nurtured, respected and preserved. Generations have consistently destroyed the good and noble ones and have been “hell-bound” in destroying them and manipulating their teachings to their own advantage. Message of truth when manipulated becomes message of untruth. No master can control it. What liberates is true and what binds is untrue. Liberation is the message of God. Manipulation, fear and binding are negative aspects of man. It has nothing to do with God. Torture, destruction of materials and beings as well as killing can never be the message of God. Kindness, tolerance towards all species and Love beyond all barriers are the true messages of God.

Kindness, tolerance towards all species and Love beyond all barriers are the true messages of God.

Kindness, tolerance towards all species and Love beyond all barriers are the true messages of God.

The human species is just one species in this world. We are responsible for all species on earth because we predominantly use our intellect for our existence. All species are interconnected, seemingly or indirectly. Inflicting pain, agony and death on any beings of any species is not an act of God. God-hood never allows such acts. Such behavior is definitely a detachment from God-hood. Selfishness and greed has nothing to do with God and have everything to do with the ignorance of man. This must be clearly understood. This must be emphatically conveyed to every society. Non-violence in thought, word and action clearly amounts to being one with God-hood.

When a problem is accepted with equanimity, it cleanses the individual.

When a problem is accepted with equanimity, it cleanses the individual.

Those who are suffering, sick and victimized are certainly the children of God. They come closer to God and God comes closer to them. Ego identification is the biggest barrier between man and God. Agony dissolves the ego and brings man closer to God in surrender. Unconditional, non-judgmental God loves them, especially when they surrender their happiness, sorrows and agony to God and accept their reality without complaints. When a problem is accepted with equanimity, it cleanses the individual. When we curse and complain, the emotion binds the situation to our subconscious and that arranges a repetition of the same agony. Rather than defending a situation, when total acceptance happens, liberation begins inside. God-hood descends on us. “Let it be Thy will, not mine” is a perfect example of total surrender to existence.

Jesus Christ

“Me and my father are one” We are truly the cosmos.

When you surrender your whole life to the mission of truth, irrespective of who you are, irrespective of your strengths and weaknesses, you will become extremely powerful from within. Everything external of us disappears sooner or later. Inner strength takes us through everything and establishes us in our own God-hood. Then we realize “Me and my father are one”. And, that we are the same consciousness that created the universe, that maintains the universe and dissolves the universe. We are truly the cosmos. We are truly one with the galaxies and all the beings of every plane.This truth cannot lighten up our awareness if it remains only as external knowledge. It can be ours only when we are kissed by this awareness from inside. Then, you become one with the Christ consciousness. This is individualistic.

World does not need converters, world needs transformers.Transformation is essential from mankind to kind man. Nobody can convert anybody into anything. Conversion into any religion never guarantees any stature. It is only a change of tag. It is just an external facade, just like changing a dress. It is foolishness to believe that changing a religion can hasten your lead to God. God is not bound by any religions. God is omnipresent. All manifestations have come out of one God.

All manifestations have come out of one God

All manifestations have come out of one God

God is the same for all beings, all species. There is no higher or lower God. You and I are the children of the same God. Children of the same father. There are beings with higher and lower awareness. Those who inflict pain and suffering are certainly of lesser awareness. Those who spread warmth, positivism and kindness are of higher awareness. Violence is a product of lower awareness. Non-violence amounts to higher awareness. Dare to exercise non-violence at all times. It will get you closer to God-hood. This is for sure.

The world does not need those who convert others to any religions. How can it change anything? Inner peace and quiet are more important and that has nothing to do with any religion. The world needs those who transform people and their lives for the better. This needs love in the heart, not greed and private agendas. The world needs those who bring peace in the hearts of generations, not calamity. The world needs peacemakers not hatred mongers. The Christ consciousness is your choice. Unconditional Love is the path.

Wish You the taste of Christ consciousness. May you always remain happy and free.

Wish You LIBERATION from all the conditionings and bindings of earth.

Love You Always

Q&A in Novi Sad, Serbia

M profile

Q: If one wants to achieve a goal, and encounters a lot of obstacles or even one obstacle which is tough and seems too difficult to overcome, should we consider it as a sign that we should turn to other direction or should one persist and endure, slowly waiting to achieve that goal?

A: Whatever the speed is, the speed is not the point. Your moving is the important thing. Are you moving ahead or are you stagnating? So speeding is not important, but keeping on moving is important. Time is like this. Actually time itself is not slow, but there are many obstacles so that we become slow. What you should do is, ensure that even if movement is slow, keep moving, so that eventually, you will reach your destination. My calculation is, until December 2017 the speed of journey or hurdles will be more or less similar. It will not be much different from now. It is from December 2012 to December 2017, i.e. five years. But NOW is a very good time to plant the seeds for what you want to do in the future, it is time to start doing it. Before December 2017, you can set everything in order and then it will be a smooth, hurdle-free journey. So please keep moving, I’m holding you.

Q: A lot of negative things have happened in my life recently, how to get rid of negative emotions, I can’t control my space to be clean and peaceful. I’d like to escape somewhere deep within, but how to do that?

A: When there are some kind of emotions which are residues from the past, it is common for everybody, not only you, all people are storing it and suffering because of it. Look at your life now. Is it 50% positive and 50% negative or your thought is more positive or more negative? This is the first level of analysis. Positive is that we are in good health, we are eating all right, we are sleeping all right, etc. First start with what is there. So, start with what you have, what is in good condition in your life. Start from there. This will help you to increase your positiveness. Then second thing is when you look at the past, things that happened in the past, if you store those details, it is likely that they will happen again or get repeated in the future. Whatever happened in the past, understand that it was a different time in the past, different space, different mind, so start looking at it like, „Ok, that is past, that is dead, that is gone.“ And today you are a new person. This is your reality, today, now. You are not the past, you are not the future, you are perfectly new,  as you know. At this point of time you are very powerful. You do not know about the past because it is already finished. You do not know about the future because it is yet to be. Now you are very powerful. If you focus yourself on now,  with all pluses and minuses, the past or future doesn’t matter, if you focus yourself on the right now you will be perfectly fine. You will always do good. When the mind goes to the past, especially the guilt, you must tell the mind, “That is history. I am different now. I have gained more strength for today from the past despite my past. Today I am more powerful.” This is the way to tackle the current mind. Mind will definitely go to the past, but bring the mind back to the present. You should always be  conscious. You should always think, “This is the only reality I have. I am living today. I am working today. I am talking today. This is my only reality.” From here you start working. And all the people who are with you are your current reality. Be with them. Harmonize them. Give love, share love, so that everyone is happy when you are around. That way you can make your future much better.

man meditating

Q: While I was in a deep meditation, my inner sight was extremely focused so, let’s say, I was in a thoughtless state for longer time.  At that moment I felt strong heartbeat which was as if I was having a heart attack. My heart was pumping, pumping, pumping and I didn’t know what to think or feel. It was like my heart was going to explode. Could you tell me what happened?

A: These are always phases when energy shifts within. Sometimes when you meditate, especially when the mind goes blank, when the mind empties completely, suddenly there will be a surge of energy in the veins, through the meridians. And then it can conglomerate in some places, especially in the head, heart or stomach center. It usually moves up and down. And this is natural. Just allow it to happen. And at that time, surrender more. Your mind would have completely emptied itself so you have just to focus on that thing and keep breathing. In this case, I understand that you may feel panic, but it is important to connect to me at that time. If you connect to me at that time, you will automatically feel that energy is normalizing. Try that.

Q: I connected with you, Mohanji, That’s how I saved myself! :)

A: Yes, I know. I can give you another technique. Just sit quiet, and just go through the breath for a few minutes. Sit quiet and go through the breath entering your system, and prana going through the body. It may take some time, but just focus on your breath entering through the nose, and reaching every cell of your body. Totally internal. Only breath and you. Just start feeling. So, when you concentrate on the breath, on the air going in, you will start going through the breath, to the energy particles of the breath, which is actually nourishing the cells through the meridians. Just feel the energy flowing through your body, through the veins, through every meridian, and it reaches all the parts of the body. Just be with the energy flow. And when you flow through that energy, you can reach every cell of your body, every part of your body, every organ of your body through inside, so that it touches everywhere. When you are aware of that, slowly you will be aware of the sounds of your body. First the sound inside the body, the heartbeat, then the circulation of blood, the secretion of juices in the stomach… All these sounds will be occupying you.

So, When you go through the breath, the next is sound. Once you go through the sound, when you become the sound, automatically with the sound there is vibration. You will become the vibration of the sound. And when you become the vibration of the sound, slowly, slowly you will start feeling the brightness of every cell because every cell has an aura. And you start feeling that aura. It is the light, very, very, very thin, but it is brightness. You will start feeling the brightness. And when you start feeling the brightness, you will also start feeling the lightness of the body. The body becomes very light. When the body becomes lightness, or when you start feeling the light, you will start feeling the light of the soul, the energy that operates your body. Once you start feeling the energy that operates the body, once you start feeling the soul, at that time you would have completely merged with the consciousness.

So, the first and the only effort you need is to stay with the breath. And when you stay with the breath, that breath will take you to every other stage, that of sound, that of light, and that of brightness, and dissolution. You’ll go to all the stages automatically, you don’t have to do anything. Just be with the breath in the first stage. That is only determination you need. You can practice this on your own, and you will see the difference. Nowhere energy will be blocked. And before you start, please connect to my eyes for two minutes, then start. It may take some time, from the breath to the brightness. It may take one year, two years… but it’s worth it. Because in a couple of years’ time you will completely become brightness. You do not need to do anything more. This is very, very, very powerful. It’s worth trying and you don’t need any master, or anybody to guide you. You can do it yourself. And at your own speed.

Q: If we are too kind and compassionate, we will lose ourselves. Yet, we are supposed to be selfless. Where is the ideal line between serving others and pursuing one’s own goals?

A: That is very simple. First of all, you have to take care of yourself. Because you have taken birth to enjoy this existence. So, by denying everything you cannot move forward. But while living, if you have an attitude of kindness, an attitude of compassion, that is selflessness. It is not denying any of the things which you would probably want. Like the food, the clothing, the house, whatever you want to enjoy. Not as per the greed, but as per the need. The world does not expect you to starve and feed another person. Like they say in the airplane, „First you put the mask on your face, then help other people.“  First you be happy. Only when you are happy will you be able to help other people. You should not expand your happiness, e.g. “I need one million dollars more to be happy than what I have now”, etc. Then it will be difficult to serve other people. But if you can be satisfied with what you have, and you are enjoying your life and at the same time you are expressing compassion, and you are expressing kindness, you will not hurt anybody through thought, word, action, you are selfless. And it is not only about spending money. Charity or selflessness is not only spending money on somebody. It is like, a child is crying and you put your hand around the child and say, “Don’t worry, I’m with you.” That is selfless expression of compassion. It is the opposite of indifference. Or, you had a good meal, you are very happy, and you saw a very old, poor woman with no food for the last two days, and you buy that person a piece of bread. That is selflessness. It is the attitude that you will exist in 100% non-violence in thought, word and action. If you do that, you will automatically raise your consciousness to the higher. There cannot be any greed. Greed or selfishness cannot happen.

Bless You All
