Mohanji gives insights on experiences during meditation
Satsang at The Attic, Connaught Place, New Delhi on 20th August, 2011
Mohanji org 1100 FBQ: In the age of Internet, we tend to look at various things and we follow that for a while, and then move from it. But isn’t it true that it is the faith and not the medium that matters most. Because there have been cases – for example, in the case of Lord Buddha where even he, after the entire stage of meditation, hadn’t found anything. Yet the moment he felt he hadn’t found anything, he found everything. So I believe there are cosmic energies in this world. Positive energies are drawn towards positive emotions and positive faith. Shouldn’t that happen, or should we define what the right medium is for us? Or should we just have the right faith?
A: I have understood your question. Whatever we do or whatever we think has limitations. Whatever happens has no limitations, i.e., certain things happen to us – we take birth. From birth till death, we have brought sufficient money to complete the journey, i.e., we have defined our birth and death before we were born. Each person has defined himself in that way.
Now, your question was about the consciousness that moves you, right? If the consciousness that moves you is in an unlimited plane, there cannot be any emotions, nor can there be any detours. You will be walking a straight path till the destination, and you would have the corresponding experiences. But what happens is that we get influenced during the journey and we decide to take detours. This may not suit the original agenda of your birth. That is when conflicts happen, disappointments happen and expectations are formed upon detours.
Can you segment your question and ask so it’s easy for me to answer? This is quite interesting for me.

Q: First segment – Isn’t it the faith of following a path, rather than the medium that matters most?
A: Faith is the key; faith moves mountains. So when you have firm faith, like faith in Shirdi Sai Baba, no harm can reach you, because the faith itself protects you. Then you can be one hundred per cent sure that you will never fall, depending on the intensity of the faith. Guaranteed!

Q: Second segment – What is that stage when one says I have to take a U-turn? Because, I forget the name of this rishi who meditated for a long time, he practiced the Gayatri Mantra so that he could meet Devi. And just when he thought that it had all gone to waste, he took sannyas. The moment he took sannyas, Devi appeared and asked him what he wanted. He said “Look, I don’t need anything now.”
A: Basically when you do something with an expectation, and even if you do it for a purpose, usually what happens is that the intensity may be less at some point in time. Or through doing, you have very very weak limitations. We feel that through our doing, we can achieve a lot, which is not true. By being, you can achieve much more. Beingness is intangible, doingness is tangible. That is why by doing, we are often adding another habit to our system which becomes a burden in the end. Once you drop this burden, you see light. So what was preventing us from seeing the light? – The action. It’s like a feverish action because it’s like “I want to see, I want to see, I want to see”. Finally, what happens, is that you see nothing.
So in Buddha’s state, he says that he was meditating and meditating and nothing was happening. And then he dropped everything. See, you can take your kundalini through sadhana (spiritual practice) up to the third eye. Or up to the throat chakra, then the kechari mudra to the third eye. But from the third eye to the crown chakra, how do you take the kundalini up? It has to happen – eligibility is the factor. So when Buddha dropped everything, he felt the leaf falling from the tree through his consciousness. And he felt every movement of the leaf. So that is full awareness, 360 degrees. Where you don’t exist, you are one with the whole world. A leaf should fall through you, it cannot fall outside of you. Because you are omnipresent. The moment you feel the leaf is falling outside of you, you have not dropped your body consciousness, that’s lost. The bird was singing within you, not outside of you. Likewise everything falls in place, and complete annihilation of the unit happens. Then you are merged with the one consciousness.
How does that happen? Beingness. You can do any sadhana you like, because you like to taste it, or test it. But it is not taking you anywhere. That is why I said that in the spiritual supermarket, there are hundreds of sadhanas prescribed, whether tantric, or yogic or whatever. But you do that for personal satisfaction and not enlightenment.
Enlightenment happens only through beingness. When you drop everything and be with yourself. To achieve that, you need detachment, even from whatever you do. This is the reason why sometimes doingness can’t take you further. But you wouldn’t know unless you do a lot and it’s not happening. But you would have spent a lot of time. So what is the detour? The detour is basically your understanding that this is not going anywhere. I have had enough of it, drop it. The moment you drop it, everything falls in place. Then you no longer have any binding.
Helplessness is the other side of ego. If ego is on one side of the coin, helplessness is on the other side. That is why God gives us situations where we are helpless. Then we surrender, so there’s no ego. That is the sign of why we prostrate at the feet of God. Head and heart are in the same line and there’s no ego. When ego is nullified, grace flows. Likewise for purity. Satkarma – do good things, then purity automatically develops within you. And then automatically you get lifted. And then you won’t want to do anything, or say anything. There’s nothing to express. You feel that you are fine as you are. You were always fine, but something, i.e., your mind, was telling you that you were not fine. Now however, the mind can no longer talk.
Now I’ll give you a very simple practice. If you can follow this, in a year’s time, you’ll see the progress. First of all, whatever binds you – even this meditation if it binds you – drop it. If words are binding you, drop it. If you feel that you are getting addicted to it, drop it. Your soul’s purpose is complete liberation as soon as possible; its interest is in getting back home as early as it can.
So, imagine a cricket ground. There is one door and everyone is rushing in, elbowing and trying to get in. Our thoughts are like that, trying to elbow their way into our mind to express themselves. Just like a policeman watching the crowd. He’s not interfering or doing anything, he’s just watching the crowd. What happens? Automatically people will start forming a queue and the rush stops. People know that he could be dangerous, so out of fear or out of awareness, the queue forms and it’s orderly. Slowly, slowly, continue to watch your thoughts – first you watch for 5 minutes a day, next 10 minutes a day and then after 10-15 days, make it 15 minutes a day. You are only watching, not doing anything. Then the thoughts will start segregating. Right now we are terribly worried about the space where there is no activity. However, you will start loving that space after some time.
Now why we are in a hurry to go around and fill our space up? Because we are worried about the vacuum, the empty spaces within our mind. And mind stops existing if there are a lot of empty spaces. But why should mind be there? So we will start falling in love with that empty space, and that space expands further and further. If it goes further and further, mind itself dissolves. Then karma dissolves – there is no karma to express through the mind. Then what happens – shanti, complete peace. This is possible, just by watching, just by being a witness.

Q: This is my first session. For the last couple of months, I have been attending, but not on a regular basis. I was not at all a firm believer of meditation. I used to laugh when people went for it. My friends are sitting here only, and they forced me to give it a try once. In my first experience, I felt a very strange thing that has never happened to me before. I felt that I got connected with my father, with the divine light of my father who passed away two years ago. I felt that the soul of my father entered my body, the top of my skull actually – I felt that it was vibrating vigorously and then it went away. Now after that, whenever I do meditation, I do it in anticipation that I will surely get the same connection. But the same thing has never happened again. And in the middle of the meditation, I feel very restless and uncomfortable. So many thoughts keep hovering in my mind that I lost my father very early, when I was just a small kid. And I could not perform the duties which I should have done for my father. So this makes me very uncomfortable and very restless. I request you to guide me.
A: The first was true. He actually conveyed this to you. You reached a level of vibration where he could actually convey a message, which was not possible in the normal run because we are in a mode of activity and thoughts where no messages of a subtle nature can reach you.
Now, you can’t go back to the past and reverse anything. What you could possibly do to still express gratitude and honour your father is the pitru-karmas, shraadh rite. If you do that, that automatically elevates the soul. When we cry for a departed one, it pulls the soul back, which is not good. This is because it has its own agenda and you are preventing that. However the moment you start expressing through shraadh, that I am happy with you and thank you very much, I couldn’t do much for you but this is the best I can do for you now, that would be gratefully accepted in the other realm. And definitely it happens. There are amazing results. I don’t have time to explain, but some people have conveyed amazing results by just performing the shraadh rite, which I had guided them to do. This connectivity is important. That way, you will evolve and he will evolve. But he conveyed his message.
When you express yourself in the form of an entity, such as a body, residue remains. And the residue has a power to convey. So you have got the message and this is the right message. He blesses you and loves you. You could convey back the same through the shraadh. Then you will see the grace flowing in your life. That is why I make it extremely important for taking blessings in this communion, first from the parents. Matha – Pitha – Guru – Deivam. Mother – Father – Teacher – God. Then everywhere you are patching up, and grace flows abundantly. Conflicts dissolve. Otherwise we always have regrets, guilt, we have fears and these things prevent our progress.
And do not expect the same result twice, because that will not happen. Like, if I tell you, on the 20th, at 10am, come for the meditation. Next week, I cannot tell you the same thing because it’s another date, another situation. So we are moving as per a time-space juncture. At a particular time, a particular event happens to a particular person. We are moving according to that and we cannot change that. Tomorrow, or in the next moment, it may not be the same. The same person may not experience the same thing, so life has to continue like that.
Yes, it was a real connection. That is why I said that you should own your experiences. In this meditation, whatever experience you have is real. I’ll give you an example to clarify this point further. One person who has never meditated before came to the meditation. His father had died when he was 11 years old. Now he’s 38. And ever since, he had never been able to find the documents of his property. They had searched everywhere and couldn’t find them. So he and his relatives could not even partition the property. In the meditation, his parents came, blessed him and told him “We are very happy with you. You are a very pure son of ours. By the way, you have been looking for this document; search in this particular place and you’ll find it.” And they found it. Sometimes tangible results happen. You have to own it. Understand that it is real. Otherwise you cannot progress further. Mind will always say – you are imagining. You have to differentiate between imagination and reality.

Q: Sometimes other people come back with comments. I have shared a lot of my experiences in my articles and I have a lot of brickbats coming back to me.
A: That is because another person cannot understand your constitution or consciousness. What you experience is completely personal or different than another person’s. Whatever you’ve experienced in your life so far is your personal experience. It’s not the same for another person. If somebody else cannot see, it only shows that person’s level of consciousness – it could be higher or it could be lower. So do not expect another person to understand you. But if you write it down, it will tell you where you are travelling. That is why I recommend writing down your experiences. Once you are confident about saying that you experienced it, conviction happens. Conviction leads to faith; that will automatically take you higher. Once there is faith, every door opens. If there is lack of faith, nothing happens. Others may feel that your experience is imagination, good enough. That is not your concern. We talk about other people; that is not at all required. Likewise, we are always concerned about what other people say about us. That is also nonsense because they can say anything. So if we can avoid these two things, life becomes easier.

Meditacija Moć čistote u Novom Sadu 3c chin mudraQ: Many times, I feel that God wants to convey some message to me, but I am not able to understand. And I feel restless many times. Initially, when I used to come to the meditation two years ago, I sometimes dreamed of Lord Shiva and it was a very uncomfortable kind of thing. And after coming to meditation, I had a very similar dream of Lord Shiva. And during meditation, I felt some discomfort. There was a time when I felt a divine light and like a current through my body. That really scared me, and then I left meditations and all other things. Then I again started this and felt that life has become soothing again. But I am often scared of meditations when I am alone.
A: The more you can move to your spine, the more your fears will disappear. Fears are all in the emotion and mind plane. With consistency and faith, you will automatically shift to the spine. Whatever the impression, whether it is a good feeling or bad, continue with it. And walk the path. As I always say, do not try to walk north first, then east, then west and so on. Keep walking to whatever destination you have set, till the end of the road. It doesn’t matter which guru you follow, as all gurus are the same, or which path you follow. That consistency will erase the bad effects. Once the clarity increases, the awareness increases, you will see everything more clearly. It’s like climbing up a hill – from down below, it seems like a very high hill and very difficult to climb. But when you reach the top, you see everything very clearly. So like that, you keep climbing. Once you start walking the steps, you will be fully protected, one hundred per cent guaranteed, and guidance will come to you. If a message from a higher consciousness has to reach you, they will make sure they reach you. And if something is not coming to you at a particular time, you do not need it then. If it had to come to you at that particular time, it would have come.
Your experiences all exist within your consciousness. They come out at an appropriate time. When you are ready for it, it will come to you. If you put a seed in the soil during the summer and don’t water it, it will not germinate. Maybe the seed will stay dormant though and come out when the rains come. Like that, in a particular environment and at a particular time, things will happen for you. But you should not hang on or cling on to any of these impressions. Keep moving, and do it in a consistent way so that automatically things start clearing. Faith is very important – whichever God you believe, have full faith in him. And that itself will eradicate all issues.

Q: What does the stiffness of spine signify during the meditation?
A: Actually, the activity is happening through the spine and it can create an effect that suits your constitution. So when the spine is stiff, it means some movement has happened. Some energy has shifted and it has created the effect of stiffness. It will go back to normalcy once this leaves completely. For some people, it was perspiration in that area. For some, it was heat. That is their constitution. But the bottom line is that it had an effect.

Entities

Q: When does the soul enter the body?
M: I would say the soul is inside when the first part-the spine- is born. fetusSo, I would say that the soul enters as soon as it can come in, but many people say third month. I would say much earlier, because by the time the body is being prepared, there is a soul element active already.
The soul doesn’t simply enter, it’s like a slow transfer. Of course, the soul enters through the top of the head and all the way, but gradually with time. Like a cloud.
Or like you pay some advance and then you pay the whole amount later haha .
This is also why I am completely against aborting children; it’s very cruel. Secondly, if somebody does something like that – to get out of the effect of the tragedy takes lifetimes.
Q: Unless you do service to children.
M: Yes, but that is not an excuse, you know? The karmic debt is very heavy.

Entities

Sometimes if the entities have occupied a land for a long time, only the physical body leaves after death. Sometimes the constitution and the soul aspect cannot leave.
Q: Why do they remain? Why don’t they go into the white light?
A: When the ownership is not changed, it implies that they are occupying a land. The new owner in physical body is staying along but the entities don’t agree. The entities are harmless, they are actually good. Don’t think they are bad, or they want to harm you- in most cases, that’s not true.
For example if we go home and somebody else is staying there, and then we are not really accepted, we feel bad and lost. So, the tantric way of ridding them is to bind them into some object and keep them. If there is an activity in any house and tantrics are brought – they bring them to one object and bind them. I do not agree with that because- if you can liberate them- liberate them!
Why do they stay here? Basically, if any being, whether human or animal, dies with a feeling of victimhood or binding, it stays on and doesn’t go.
Q: What about entities that are not human bodies?
A: That I will tell, otherwise this will be incomplete.
Usually, for 80% of the people on death, the last breath and soul leaves through the mouth. In other words, a natural death. fontanelle - soft-spotBut the soul entered the body through the top of the head. This is why the top of the head of newborn babies is very soft. So the soul entered through this opening, travelled through the middle of the body and spread to every organ. Hence the kundalini energy is supposed to be between the direct top of the head and the direct bottom of the space between the scrotum (or vagina for women) and anus. This is the constitution of human beings.
So, the whole idea about spirituality is to take the soul back through the top of the head. Hence every exercise – kriya yoga and all the yoga paths, teach how to bring the soul back to top of the head at the time of death and go out. To leave in this liberated manner, you need to be liberated while living.
If the soul exits through the mouth, you can guarantee there will be a rebirth. But if the soul exits through the top of the head, usually the karmas pressure will not be there. That means you have exhausted everything, and you are taking it back and going out. This is why in spirituality, how you are is more important than where you are.
So, if you are very stable spiritually and you are breathing through the top of the head and through the spine most of the time, there is no need to go anywhere. You are already in tune with the universe, and when you leave, you are actually leaving all the way back.
But if the consciousness is on earth plane- if you are bound by objects, people, situations, events, emotions- then this cannot happen. The last strongest emotion while leaving the body is very important for the next life, or the journey ahead. Hence in old times, the grandmothers tell the grandchildren “Before you go to bed, you surrender yourself to the God, you are sleeping in His lap.” This is training the child to connect to god every time, because there is a state of death in every sleep. Deep sleep state is equal to state of death- complete nullification. Every person goes through this process every night. So it’s important to connect to god in that plane, while living, so that when you leave- you can leave in the the right path. Two types of entities stay back, confused entities and crippled entities.

The confused entities

The confused entities are stuck with earthly things- the emotions, people, events, situations. They carry victimhood, injustice, thoughts of injustice- all these kinds of things; and they are confused.

The crippled entities

The crippled souls are the souls which die due to murder, suicide or other situations. They didn’t want to die, but they died. In the Auschwitz or the Pol Pot’s regime, people were tortured and killed, with the feeling of victimhood while dying. On the other hand, every day there are numerous animals being bound and killed. Their soul also exits in a hurry from the body, because it’s not a natural death.
Any unnatural death always makes the soul leave the body in a hurry. And it cannot even leave through the mouth; it leaves through the anus or the nine holes on the lower part of the body. So those souls are still hanging around. Those with psychic ability see that when an animal is slaughtered, multiple souls go out of the body, not just one soul. Because these souls on death enter into any body possible. They stay along because they don’t know what to do. They do not have the process of going through the cycle and coming into the womb and taking birth. They enter into whatever possible, any body possible. Including other animals. It’s like the pilot suddenly ejects himself because the plane is crashing- the soul is ejected out from the body and not in the normal way. So these souls are mostly the crippled.
Crippled souls are very very weak souls, because they have no energy to even create another body. That is why they enter into any body possible and they just throw them around. But again, as I said, they are all helpless and not harmful. And in the presence of higher masters- who are connected to the source- many get redeemed and sent up into the white light. Even a picture of a master is good enough, because it represents the form of the person who is connected.

original-living-entities-existed-in-such-a-hot-sp

Sometimes if the entities have occupied a land for a long time, only the physical body leaves after death. Sometimes the constitution and the soul aspect cannot leave.

Positive vs. negative entities

Likewise, the confused souls, can be seen roaming around with people. They have possessiveness; they have almost every emotion that we entertain. These are the ones who try to play around a bit. But when they understand they can’t play, they are very decent haha. Especially if you talk straight, saying “Don’t play, we will deal with this” and then they are fine.
Always, whenever there is a positive, there is a negative- there are entities of negative nature. They are as powerful as the positive. They are children of the same god. But by nature they are negative. The difference is: the positive always liberates you, keeps you liberated; the negative always binds you, keeps you bound. The clear influence in spiritual path we can see: somebody who follows a powerful master for a long time suddenly twists his/her mind and goes into a completely different path. This is a clear sign of influence of the negative. They try to tease you all the time, but if the hook falls, then you are pulled. But many people who are deeply connected to a master will never budge, they will never fall. But the moment you are weak – that is the moment the hook falls, you are hooked. This is why the deep connectivity to the consciousness of the master of the white path is essential to stay tuned. If that connectivity is maintained, nothing can enter you or your household. There are even negative entities who talk great spirituality but understand that they are binding, because they put fear. Any path which puts fear in you is reasonably of the negative nature. But any path which liberates you of fears is of positive nature. This is a clear sign you can follow.
And usually the negative entities play from the back side, they don’t come up front. They can’t attack directly. I like direct fight. They know they can’t do anything. So they pass by and try to stab my heart. But they could not. Then I threw everybody out from the whole region. Because, see, if they want to attack you, they will attack the people who are very close to you. I always used to tell Biba “When you are in my house don’t worry, nothing will touch you, but when you do not follow what I say then you are vulnerable.”
But in the white path, in the path of the truth, you cannot bind anybody, so you cannot insist that you should follow what I say, you can only suggest. The other path is binding; they insist you should follow, so there is a huge difference here. I never say “You should follow me”.
So, the positive and the negative represent the duality. People who get ritualistic are immediately hooked by the negative ones.

These are all various aspects. It is very difficult to discuss or explain the planes of operation, because what you could normally see is a body and a few words, but that doesn’t explain the consciousness.

I always tell those who are connected to me – connect to my eyes when you wake up in the morning and when you go to bed, and if you are keeping a picture of mine keep it facing east. These are the two things I normally say, which are found very effective.

Protection

So, how you protect yourself is very simple: connect to a higher consciousness, it can be Jesus, Krishna or any entity who is established or well connected or well represented from the white path; then usually no one can touch you. Many people cannot connect to a living master, because there is a personality to handle. They can easily connect to a master who lived before. It doesn’t matter, as long as you connect to a higher master, whether in the body or not in the body. Once you are connected, it is his responsibility. Also it is said in the scriptures- If a person chants Gayatri mantra for example, he cannot be eaten by vampires. It’s a proverb but there is a deeper meaning in it. A person chanting a mantra increases his vibratory level to a great height and then in that vibratory level, no normal entity can reach him or touch him.
I always tell those who are connected to me – connect to my eyes when you wake up in the morning and when you go to bed, and if you are keeping a picture of mine keep it facing east. These are the two things I normally say, which are found very effective. But the point is, whatever is outside will exist anyway, i.e, the situation remains the same. You have to protect yourself. And protection should be with clarity.
If there is a problem with the form, you can follow any person, but be clear about the white path. The gurus will have no expectations and will never bind you. They will always keep you liberated. It is your choice whether to connect or not. This is the white path. In the white path, the free will is always respected. In the dark path, there is no free will; there is binding. But many people who are of tamasic nature, they like the dark path because they don’t have to take any decisions. No responsibilities. “It’s in the book” or “Guru says – do this”; there is no more thinking, no more talking. The worst I have found in the spiritual path are the ones who use certain things to bind people- catch the consciousness and hold it. There are certain paths like that. And I always feel what they are doing; because if I bind you I’m also bound. I can’t leave. So why would people trap themselves, I always fail to understand. But there are people, terrestrial and insecure. They want money or power or something else, so they collect people, bind them and keep them, but they are also bound. They don’t understand that, you know?

It is important to stay clear from the influences, while alive. It’s very simple, we need to say “no” to many things, that is: a guru may look exotic, with all the correct signs which we have in mind, but which path he is following is very important. The moment they start binding you- you should leave, escape, it’s important. Always stay liberated, this is very important.
Q: If you have one, how do you liberate yourself from this astral connection?
A: Astral connection is not a problem, because that is your homeland.

Q: What if you have a spirit in…?
A: In that case, if you deeply connect to a master in the white path and also chant certain mantras, they will disappear 80% of the time. Even Baba, Jesus, Krishna, any entity you can connect, living or not living that’s not a problem, but then chant the mantra intensely, so that it becomes too hot inside for them to stay .

Q: Suppose the person is reasonably cleansed, on the right spiritual path and unhooked from unnecessary clogging, traps etc. What if other people keep hooking onto him/her? Can that person be pulled down again?
A: Well, it’s your choice; it’s up to you. You can still stay immune as well as help other people. The level of entanglement is your choice. How deep you should get involved- this is your choice. I always suggest do your best and get out of the place. I always tell the same to healers and doctors: You do your best, but the cure is not up to you.Healing is not up to you; this has to happen. Keep your conscience clear and always work on the level of purity, so that you are immune and nothing can happen to you. But if you keep entertaining the injustice aspect or a victim aspect: “Why did this happen to this person?”, “Oh poor man!”- that kind of over-emotionalization attracts that emotion into you. Or that situation or its essence comes to you. So it is important to deliver what you can and go away. That way, you can be free and the other person is also free and liberated.

Basing on the Spine

Satsang with Mohanji in Cape town, September 2013

You may have observed, in the last couple of years at least, that time has become very fast, absolute speed. This is a very interesting time. It’s actually a blessing to be alive in today’s time. This is mainly because one year of our current time is almost like fifty years about a century ago. That is the phase we have come to. The speed has increased. To be alive at this time is very important. And if you are alive with awareness while you are here, this is even more important. Many of us do not know what the importance of this time is while we are here.

Feel the Earth with awareness. It is a blessing to be alive in this time. Be one with the universe.

Feel the Earth with awareness. It is a blessing to be alive in this time. It takes you to complete dissolution, complete oneness with the universe.

Many of you have heard about the shift that happened in 2012. What has happened during this time, basically it started in 1986 according to me, is that this momentum started increasing. According to me, the transition of time happened approximately in 1986. You can’t really say ’on this date’. Likewise you can’t say that the shift happened on 21st December 2012. I would call these landmarks or milestones, something you can feel or be tangible about in time. We have milestones on the road because we need to know how far we have travelled. It’s similar. So we keep certain dates in mind so we can say,“Ok we have arrived here, now we can take the next step. We are moving forward.“ However, most importantly it’s not the milestone that matters, it’s awareness that matters,“Oh, I have reached here, this is my destination and this is the distance.“ Time started speeding up and bodies that move with time like ours have no choice. We do not have a choice. Body is evolving, body is moving forward with time. Time takes us and the advantage is if you are moving with awareness with time, the speed is like that. It takes you to complete dissolution, complete oneness with the universe. So the shift is for sure and the advantage of our time is that is as I said earlier, one year is almost like fifty years before 1986. We have started moving forward increasingly. The disadvantage is that if we are not aware of our time, we will not be stable. We will always be entertaining anxieties, fears and instability. Stability happens when you know,“Yes, this is the speed, I am moving with the speed and the destination is total dissolution. Being one with the universe. There is nothing in between.“ If we move forward with this awareness, it’s a very good idea. That is why this meditation is about unhooking. If you do not unhook yourself from the past, past places, people, situations, time, locations, and you are not free, your mind is not moving with your body with time, and it is not easy. Because part of our consciousness lies in the past, part of it is in the present, so there will be some conflict in our daily life. This is one point. Please remember that.

360° Awareness

Completeness

The second point is about why we insist on 360 degrees, if you follow this meditation (you can download it from http://www.mohanji.org free of cost, I do it as a service). Why 360 degrees? Usually every human being operates in 120 degrees, in front of the face. This is not enough for full awareness. This is enough to just operate in daily life. Because all our senses are in the front, our mind goes out with the senses to the front. When mind is with the eyes, we see. Otherwise we just look, we don’t see. When mind is with the tongue, we taste. Otherwise, if we watch TV while eating, we will have no idea what we are eating and we will not know the taste. If mind is with the ear, we listen. So mind has a major role to play and we have five senses to know the world. What is the world? We taste it, we feel it, we touch it, we hear it, we smell it. This is what we do. So with the eyes, with the nose, with the ears, with the tongue, with the skin, we feel the world. Everything is in the front. We are front-oriented. All beings are front-oriented. What about the 240 degrees behind us? This is important. Until that is connected you are never complete. I am sure each one of you has felt some level of incompleteness at some point in time. This is not the real you. Who am I? Everybody has asked this question. I am not what I seem to be. I must be more than this. The answer is in completion. Completion means when you took the first birth ever on this plane, you came with full awareness. You came to experience the world. And to experience this world, you need the support of the elements such as earth, air, water, space, fire. This is what we call the body, a mixture of all these. When we leave the body, it goes back to nature. So we are picking the body from nature to experience the world, and we dissolve the body, and we go further. This must be the original idea. We came here to feel the Earth. But if you look at the Earth, what is the main thing that we experience here? Of course we can easily say relativity. Relativity created the birth wherever you are. Relativity created duality. Or relativity created realities in any plane, but here on Earth the main thing is relationship. We are here to experience relationships in relation to something that we are. You are apart from me because in relation to where I am sitting you are sitting elsewhere. So we started experiencing relativity in various dimensions such as father, mother, brother, sister, children, boss, enemies, friends, whatever. All the relations. This is why we came here. But then our operating tool was the mind. You needed the mind to feel all this. Mind gave you identifications. Mind told you this is you, you are this name, you are this qualification, you are this form, this tradition, this family, like this we became more and more compartmentalised or in other words put in frames. We have framed ourselves. We don’t have any frames. But because we have a body, because we have identifications, we started feeling the frames and mind produced ego, ego says,“ This is what you are, you are the qualifications, you are the money, you are the position, you are the purchasing power and all this.“ Then we lost track, we got entangled in this. That is when we missed the other 240 degrees. But it is available. It is always available, you can get it any time you want. You can tap into it any time you want. Please understand awareness is almost like your shadow, always ready for you to tap into. But we don’t know that it’s following us! We do not look at our shadow. We do not even remember that there is a shadow. We don’t tap into it because we get caught up in daily life. Once this is conglomerated, we are complete again. That is why basing on the spine is important. We have to shift from the front to the middle. Anxieties, fears and all these things that come into us make us vulnerable, incapacitated, disabled, only when you operate from the front. The same things cannot touch you when you are based in the spine. Try it, you will know.

I will give you another example. When you sit down quietly, just close your eyes and feel the spine. Automatically your consciousness, your awareness will shift to the third eye, the space between the eyebrows. This is the proof. We are going beyond the normal senses to the higher dimension. Third eye is the higher dimension, it is the pathway to the higher dimension. We have that faculty within us. We don’t need any religion, any guru, any guide or anybody to tell us this because we are complete. This is the truth. All are complete. Gurus and masters are road signs, they just tell you go this way, this is the destination. It is up to you to walk. This is an individual journey, because we are individuals, we are born alone, we will die alone, and we are experiencing various aspects of relationships while we are here.

Mohanji quote - Anxieties and fears cannot touch you when

Coming back to time. The shift has happened, time has become faster, speed has increased, being in the present is the right thing to do now. If you are not in the present, the tilting times, the shifting times can pull you down. This is one aspect.

The second aspect is that one year now of your concentrated effort is almost like fifty years of your concentrated effort pre-1986. So this time is very important, you are growing faster. Now you can see another dimension. What has happened after 2012? Just look. Whatever the basic nature of every being is, there are seven billion people in the world, each person is a unique creation, nobody is a factory product, everybody is unique, nobody can be compared with another. This is the beauty of creation. Not only human beings, all beings. All are unique. So, whatever our basic nature has been, it got enhanced. It just got boosted up. A person who is by nature compassionate, became more compassionate and started expressing it. A person who is by nature angry, becomes more angry and starts expressing it. A person who is generous by nature becomes more generous and starts expressing it. But we are all a mixture. We are never one aspect only. So various aspects have come forward and started expressing. This is what we see in the world today. And this will be seen more in the days to come.

We shift from one yuga to another. We call it yugas in the Indian tradition, there are years with a particular taste, smell and touch, or flavour. Each yuga has a different flavour. So we have gone through various yugas and we are supposed to be in Kali yuga. Kali yuga is a yuga of speed and activity and also extreme representations of duality like good and bad, or as you can see in fiction films a villain and a hero. This aspect is enhanced at this time. Every time has had it, but this time it is much more the dimensions and the diversions. This time the war between good and bad is much more i.e. the kind and the cruel. You can see this aspect much more in this life time or let’s say in ten years, from 2012 to 2022. And from 2022 onwards it is said to be the birth of Sathya yuga, the yuga of truth. That is what we are being prepared for. Most of the great masters who are still operating in this plane, are working only on this now. Please be aware. That is why their consciousness is also available. We are using various methods to reach them. Each person has a style and method to reach them. That is also fine. As I said, it is not what you believe in, nor what your religion is, what your path is, or who your guru is. It is not important. It is important that you are aware that it is truth which you are seeking. The consciousness that Jesus, Buddha, Krishna represented, that is the path of the truth. In earlier times, we crucified whoever told the truth. Because we’ve never liked the truth. We liked to live on pretensions and lies. We always liked relative truths, not real truths. Jesus all his life spoke only truth. He always walked the path of purity. Why did we assasinate him? Because we didn’t like truth. If you look at our history, you can see, Socrates spoke the truth. We gave him poison. All the masters, all the great souls who came here out of compassion to guide the world to a better understanding, better awareness, were assasinated as fast as possible. Then we put the picture on the wall and say this was a great man. There are advantages to it. First we disposed of him. Second, we can interpret his teachings the way we like. This helps us. How? We create our own religions. And we can always say,“This is not me, I didn’t say this, he said that.“ Anyway he is not here to kick your butt. (laughter) We are very funny people.

Anyway, the time of truth is enhanced and you can see this happening. Don’t just believe what I say, feel it, you will know what I am saying. I am just giving you an outline. But this is an individual journey. Since it is an individual journey, it is your responsibility to explore for yourself, not explore anything outside of you. Because truth lies within you and truth can only be reached inside. Outside it’s all relative truths. You are separate from me because I am separate from you, but consciousness-wise we are one. We cannot have a separation. Soul-wise we are related, we can’t have separation.

The_Spiritual_MastersElectricity is the same. It sometimes goes through a washing machine, it washes clothes. Because it goes through a dish-washer, it washes the dishes. It goes through a refrigerator, cools things. So electricity is never different, but the utensil is different. The operating tools are different. Likewise your body is different, my body is different. It’s the same, their aspects are the same, both are made of elements, and soul-wise you and I are one. This is the fundamental understanding we must have as we go further in the path of spirituality. Once you are clear that we are one, there will be no difference in this. Whatever is in the universe, it’s an expression of ourselves. There’s nothing apart from us. From 2012 to 2022, first is the initial phase. We are actually going through the initial phase in the last few years until 2016 and there will be much more negativity than positivity. It is always like that. If you look at the history, negative wins first, negative comes and gets written first, then eventually positivity comes forward. Coming back to Jesus’s life, just imagine, if Jesus accepted all that people wanted him to accept, do you think there would be Christianity today? Nobody would remember him. His power was his staying with truth, uncompromising. No conformity. And his dramatic exit, there are many theories which say that he lived after he left the cross. One person from Europe asked me the same question. I said,“Are you bothered about that!? Why don’t you just follow the teachings? It doesn’t matter.“ Like, if I die tomorrow, or if I leave everything and go tomorrow, my only relevance is today. Because if I live a life as a hermit in the caves of the Himalayas, how does it matter to you? As long as I am providing to the world, as long as I am catering to the world, as long as I am talking, that is the only time when there is the relevance. So relevance is when you are acting and contributing. There are members of our family who left the family, who passed away, we love them, no problem, but are they relevant in our daily life? No, because they have completed the task and they moved on. Similarly, Jesus’s main contributions were all when he was talking, when he was moving, when he was performing. After that, whether he lived or whether he didn’t live, this is not our concern today. See, we are more worried about the history than about the teachings/message! Masters - by Mohanjis Devotee Sabrina Koletic

We should be focusing on the message! I always say, don’t marry the guru, marry the teachings. Gurus can be quite erratic. It is important to know that it is truth which we are looking for. The reality is that what we are looking for, is not the person. The person is a representation. Person represents the ultimate truth so he delivers. So, the victory of the negative will always happen first, as we saw in the feature films the villain makes all sorts of problems in the beginning, then the hero comes back and destroys him, ha, ha. Likewise, Jesus was assasinated, but today people all over the world worship him. The same with all the great masters. We do not accept or worship them today because often a person who is contemporary is not accepted. Again, it’s because we have to handle the personality. The person and the personality are difficult to handle. The message is easier to handle. Because we have the picture in the mind, we add that picture to the person who does not exist, it’s easy to understand. So we are actually following the mental image rather thatn the whole person with the personality. When you have to handle a real person and the personality, it is not easy. Just imagine, do you have a high picture of a guru or a master, glorified image, and somebody tells you,“ Hey, he goes to the toilet every day.“ My, god! Finished. (Laughter) Because we can’t accept such realities. We expect the person not to go to the toilet, not to eat, ha, ha, he should be like this. This is our problem, we created the image. We put the person in the frame, now if the person is beyond the frame, we reject the person. This is human nature. We must be aware of it. So, it is important to know that eventually truth has to win. Because truth cannot be hidden for long. It’s like the waves of the ocean. When the waves are hitting more and more, we will not know what the peace within the ocean is. Yet, sometimes when the ocean is calm, we understand that it’s very peaceful. We are that peace. That is why operating in 360-degree-awareness is important to move forward and being in the present is very important. We are living in an interesting time, excellent time, and this is my message to the world: Be yourself. This is your individual journey. And I always ask people to carry two things with them. One is faith. Believe in any religion, believe in any master, believe in any god, but be 100% in it, not partially. Because you can only wear the shirt that suits you. You can only wear the dress that suits you. Even if I say, this is not good, this is not bad, this is good, this is bad, I am lying. Everything is relative in the world outside, but the truth is one within you. We are living in a relative world, it’s all in relation, as I said. Whatever you see outside is relative. It is not permanently morning. There will be night coming up. And it cannot be permanently night, it can be morning sooner or later. This is the way the world goes. Relative truths are fine provided you know this is relative. Otherwise if we start believing in it, we’ll have a problem. Why? Expectation builds up. We build up expectation and expectation always brings suffering, sorrow. Expectation leads to sorrow. Dependency leads to sorrow. We say,“I expect this person to behave with me in this way, oh, he behaved differently. I don’t like him any more.“ Relationships are finished. This is how fragile we are. But if we allow the person to be oneself for oneself, this is their expression, this is their life, too. This person has come to the Earth to experience whatever they are experiencing and we just allow them to be themselves. We are peaceful, others are peaceful. This is the way existence will be further for the birth of Sathya yuga. I assume this is my mental calculation, my mental awareness, that post 2022 Sathya yuga takes birth, the yuga of truth, the yuga of happiness, perpetual bliss, within which you can probably see a lot of destruction, a lot of calamities, as I said, it’s a clash between good and evil, or I would say good and bad are basically cliche words because so many feature films happened (laughter). I would say it’s between reality and non-reality, or between relative truth and truth. This is probably the better understanding, that we must base ourselves in truth, sooner or later. And as Sathya yuga progresses, like we chose our birth, we will choose our death at will. FontanellesHow will we do that? We will change our breathing pattern from the front to the middle. That means the soul entered through the top of the head. That is why if you look at the top of the head of small children, it’s very soft, that is the way the soul entered the body. The soul will exit through the same space for which breathing will happen through the middle. The pathway through which the soul entered became closed because of our ego, wrong identifications while in the relative world. That will change to real identification of who we are,“Who am I? What am I here for? What is my purpose?“ All these will start hitting. Once we are clear about that, we will automatically know that our breathing pattern has changed and that change will lead to total liberation.

Mohanji’s talk on the Bosnian Pyramids

Meeting with Dr Semir Osmanagic, founder of the Bosnian Pyramids, 30th May 2015

Mohanji and Dr Semir Osmanagic in fron tof the pyramid of the Sun

We are almost at the edge of pure unconsciousness. We started from pure consciousness. From pure consciousness to pure unconsciousness, and then the cycle begins again. So we go through a cycle and the pyramids represent pure consciousness. If you consider them as 100% man-made, there could be some error. This is because not all the people who are here are from Earth.
Some have brought the supreme consciousness and they have clear landmarks, clear identifications as well as clear objectives. People have found microchips from millions of years ago in Siberia. Technically, they could not be more than hundred years old. Yet there was a civilisation which used microchips in the past. To demonstrate this, I’ll tell you a short story.

A STORY OF RAM, HANUMANJI AND THE RING

Lord Ram, his wife Sita and his assistant Hanumanji were flying back to India from Shri Lanka after the war. Sita was playing with her ring and it fell down into the ocean waters. Hanumanji dived down into the water to retrieve the ring. However, when he reached the bottom of the sea, he saw many rings there. He returned empty-handed, as you are not supposed to take anything which is not yours. He had not taken anything, and so asked,“Which one should I take?“ Lord Ram said,“On Sita’s ring there is ’Ram’ written on it.“ Hanumanji dived down again, and he found the ring. Upon checking, however, he found that all of the rings had ’Ram’ written on them. He went back to Ram and asked,“What is happening, all the rings have ’Ram’ written on them? Sita only had one ring. How did it multiply?“ Lord Rama replied,“Hanuman, we have been here before. This whole drama has been acted out before, and this is many times later that we are talking. There has been a Hanuman in another era, and we have a repetition of life.“

Nothing has started from here. If we are all together here, then we are related in some way. I am not a technical person, and I cannot say anything about whatever the professor has said. However, I look at it from a spiritual and energetic point of view. All I can say is that his purity of intention and purpose is absolutely beautiful. This is definitely a positive thing, to give something positive to the world. Because, if you look around now, it’s all about greed and control. We are giving something here which elevates your consciousness, your awareness. This is probably the biggest gift you can give to the world.

Yesterday somebody asked me a question and I explained the following. I believe there are pyramids which are receivers and pyramids which are transmitters. I consider most of the Egyptian pyramids as receivers for the land (even though I have never been there, and I’m not sure why I never had any interest to visit Egypt, yet had an interest to come here). So I consider pyramids of this nature as energy sources (I have not been inside. I am talking hypothetically). These pyramids here are transmitting. So the movement is like a fountain or volcano. These ones are visible from outer space. Those beings of higher nature who travel with energy, can see and feel what is going on here using these. And also the energy inside suits their energy. If they want to come here, these are portals of landing. All of us have a frequency and if the frequency doesn’t match, we cannot stay in that place. Beings who are completely selfless, and completely objective, come to such portals to exist or to work, and their intention is pure. They are not coming here to take something. They are here to expand or develop the current era, current space. That’s why when Biba said to come to these pyramids, I said,“Let’s go there.“

Biba, Mohanji and Dr Semir Osmanagic

Biba, Mohanji and Dr Semir Osmanagic

I also have a feeling about energy sources such as this one. There are four types of places: very bad, medium, good and very good. This comes into the very good level as far as the energy is concerned. To enter such places, there should be a permission, a call. That is why the professor has said many people have disowned it. Because they cannot enter. When you operate in a gross frequency, you cannot enter a subtle place. It is simple logic. Please think or believe that you have been called. Otherwise neither you nor me would be here now. There is no coincidence. And all you need when you are in such a space is emptiness. Don’t think. Just feel. How you can use this space is very simple. How or who you are, that much you get. If you are absolutely empty, that much you will be filled. If you are already fully filled, there is nothing more to give. So be empty and embrace the energy.

(To Professor Semir Osmanagic) Thank you so much for being you.

The Concept of Shiva

Satsang with Mohanji in Novi Sad, Serbia, 17th May, 2015

Blessing a child

Blessing a child

Q: I would like to ask you about spiritual maturity and the importance of staying present within ourselves and realising how important it is to obtain spiritual fidelity.
A: How many of you have heard of Shiva? I’ll explain the concept of Shiva.

THE CONCEPT OF SHIVA

In the Indian tradition, time is split into four parts and these four eras (yugs) are put together as one group. And the group repeats itself in time.
The first era of the group is the Golden age, 1.7 billion years. At that time there is no confusion, all people are great masters. There is neither a disciple nor a master. Everybody is in the aspect of God all the time. So they have all the powers that you can have as a master of yourself, mind is absent, the duration is as you like, when you want to take a birth or leave it’s up to you. Complete flexibility, complete freedom. It is the time when you are not worried about past, present or the future, you are always in perpetual consciousness. And the operating platform is unconditional love. There is no expectation, just love for the sake of love. In this one era, as one point of the whole structure, there is very low population. And there will be perfect harmony. There is no evil at all. This is one aspect. So we are going there now.
The second era is Treta yug, 1.4 million years. It is the time when Lord Rama, Hanumanji, all those people lived. This is the time when duality appeared. Good and evil were in different locations. A lot of powers were achieved, the life span was 10,000 years (our life span is 100 years, theirs was 10,000). Each person had the potential to connect to God directly, or had that state, but they also had the potential to be in the negative. The negative means greed i.e. “I want to possess everything. I want to own.“ The other side was,“Everything is mine, I don’t want anything.“ That was the level of difference.
The third era is Dwapara yug, 800,000 years. It is the time of Lord Krishna. There you could see good and evil in the same family.
The fourth is Kali yug, 400,000 years. It is our time. Good and evil are in the same person. The evil is inertia, passivity, not caring, not doing enough for other people, selfishness, this is what everybody carries.

So in the first era i.e. Golden age, all people were in the consciousness of Shiva. They knew everything. They were completely settled. There was no evil, there was no negativity, they were all revelling in the consciousness of Shiva. Shiva is not a man, it’s consciousness.
Then in the next era, many saints were meditating and they did not know the complete picture. What it is like to be in the consciousness of Shiva. In this era, there is a student and the master. Earlier, there was neither a student, nor a master. All were masters. When a student and a master happened, the student had to achieve the state of the master or the state of Shiva. So they were meditating, they were connecting, they were doing various things, but they were not getting the final.

Lord_Shiva-Diagram-with-ExplanationsAt that time, in the Himalayas, appeared one man who was completely naked, with matted hair, who held a spear in his hand and was dancing away. He was not sitting and meditating, but just singing and dancing. Many people said he was mad. He was not doing anything. But a few people realised he could be powerful. Some people approached him to see who he was. He drove them away,“Go away, don’t come near me!“ Many people ran away because they didn’t want to be with a mad man. But a few people decided,“ How can this man be happy like this?“ Because we are all only happy conditionally. We cannot be perpetually happy. So somebody who was perpetually happy meant there was something in him. And one thing was that he never stayed in the one place. While most people are happy in one place with some people, some situation or time, this man was not worried about place, people, situations or time. He was completely free. This total freedom was very difficult to understand. They still followed him wherever he went. He would sometimes say,“Come on, sit down. Connect to your spine,“ then he would go away. He was not there to teach them all the time. Then it went on for some time, but these people who followed started becoming powerful. They started transcending because they started imitating him (looked up to him as a model example). How did they achieve the awareness? Just because their mind was focused on him. They were thinking about him, they were following him. It didn’t matter what happened outside. Their mind was completely occupied with that power, so it started going through them.
See, all of you are sitting here looking at me. But the minds of some of you are elsewhere. So are you with me or are you elsewhere? (Laughter) On the other hand, some people are in other countries, but their mind is still with me. So are they with me or are they elsewhere? This was the equation. The mind of these people who followed him was totally occupied with him, so they also started having the same experiences e.g. they were not attached to a space, a person, a time. They became free eternally. They started calling him Shiva. It means liberation. They started calling him Shiva, Shiva is liberation, so they started feeling liberated by connecting to that. What did this person actually deliver to the world? The biggest gift any guru can give to any disciple – freedom. This is the biggest gift any master can give to any disciple and that is freedom even from himself i.e. freedom from people, freedom from time, freedom from space, freedom from every concept. This is freedom.
So this master became Shiva in the minds of people, and that is the picture that we see as Shiva, Kailas and other things. Can anybody fall in love with that man? Who is not in one place, who is not wearing any garments, who is not presentable in that way, and completely unpredictable, like the wind. But it happened. (Laughter) Why? Because it was too difficult for people to understand him, unless a person is of that nature, level of evolution can connect to only that person who is the embodiment of freedom. Otherwise we talk about freedom, but we do not know what freedom is. But a person who is actually operating only in freedom is not easy to understand. So there has to be somebody in the middle. Many of the saints approached or meditated on the god of love to make this man’s heart melt. Environment has a lot of value. For example, if you are in the middle of the desert, you do not feel love for anything. There is a hot sun, we would probably think of water. On the contrary if it is a beautiful garden, fragrance, so many things are favourable, then love blosoms in you. So they created that kind of atmosphere around the place where he was meditating. This person had no mind outside of him. Everything was inside. He was not aware of anything that happened outside. He was not even aware of his body, nor was he interested to know what was going on around. In that state, the compelling call from outside by the fragrance, music, sound, brought him out. He didn’t have to open his eyes to see what was going on outside. He could see everything from his third eye. Whatever was around became ash. Because it was too powerful. It was like a burning fire inside. When third eye was open, the whole fire came out and destroyed everything like an atomic bomb. Including the god of love. Finished. (Laughter) What happened then? It was a worse situation than before. The saints wanted this person to deliver knowledge to the people in the world but eventually what happened? Even the god of love was destroyed. They concluded one could not play with him. How do you get at somebody? Everybody has some weakness, right? They decided to find the weakness of this person. But he did not seem to have any weakness. This was the problem. “Some people have many weaknesses, some people seem to have no weaknesses. There should be something.“ So they tried to understand what his weakness was. Then they found out: his weakness was devotion. If somebody became too devoted to him, the bhakti, devotion melted him. He became helpless.
One woman decided to do that. She sat on the Dolma Pass, and meditated on Shiva, for centuries on. Shiva ignored her because it could have been infatuation. Somebody said,“Ok, he is a great master,“ and she may have thought,“Ok, let me try him.“ Shiva wanted to be very sure that this woman was clear in what she wanted. What does a person usually get attracted to? Good looks, good money, good materials, nice life. These are the things people usually get attracted to. Shiva had nothing. First of all he was naked, and had a snake around him, a poisonous snake. He had ash on his body. The ash has two meanings: one is complete renunciation i.e. you are actually renunciating everything. The other meaning is when everything burns down it becomes ash. Another aspect of ash is no insect will bite you :) And he didn’t take bath very often (laughter) so naturally, he didn’t brush his teeth either, so how could somebody fall in love with him? Shiva tested her. He came in disguise to her as a saint. He asked a question,“Why are you meditating on him? I know him quite well, I have seen him many times. He does not even have a nice smell around him. He has neither money nor house. He has nothing which is probably attractive to any woman as beautiful as you are. “ But she became very angry,“If one more time you talk badly about my object of worship, I’ll become violent. Get out of this place!“ Then Shiva appeared and said,“What can I do for you?“ She said,“I want you.“ He melted, right? It was not possible to create an environment around him and trap him. But with pure devotion and 100% conviction, he melted. Job done. (Laughter) He agreed to marry, and she said,“One condition. We should have a proper marriage. When you come for marriage, you should be really handsome.“ He agreed. He came for the wedding, but he had a large army with him. Normally Shiva has a huge army and they are not very good looking. His vehicle is a bull. Of course Shiva came looking handsome and everybody was dazzled by his beauty. But the people behind him were very scary (laughter). There were all sorts of people. That was his team, his army. They got married and his vehicle, the bull, was not actually a bull, but he chose the form of a bull so that nobody would fall in love with him. He did not want any deviation in his worship of Shiva. This is why. He said that nothing ever should distract him. He and Shiva. This connection should never be distracted. That is why he chose the form of a bull. The plan of the saints worked. The marriage happened. From then onwards, all the knowledge, most of the knowledge which is guiding people today is conversation between Shiva and his wife.
If you understand this story well, you see how the tradition began. The tradition began from complete pathlessness. There is no path you can latch onto. What happens then? You’ll be totally liberated. 100% freedom. Then Shiva gave various methods to reach that 100% freedom. There are various stories, Shiva sutras, Ishvara yoga, even Kashmir sutras, Guru Gita … all these things are Shiva talking to his wife and this is all coming to the world. I gave the whole picture. If you know how this derived, you will understand it better. If you understood the whole message, what is the core of the whole teaching?

Mohanji quote - Be yourselfBe natural. Be you. This is what Shiva tells people. Be yourself. Don’t try to be somebody else. Then you’ll have to put on a mask. You are not other people. You are not another person. If you choose to be yourself, you are very powerful. I guarantee you 90% of the time you will say,“I am not natural.“ Otherwise you will fake it. This is number one. Number two, do you accept yourself? 90% of the time we don’t accept ourselves. Third is, do we resist the situation around us? 90% of the time we resist everything around us including our clothes. We just adjust to the things. This is creating conflict. Where is this conflict sitting? Why is this happening? Why? Mind is the answer. We decide we should be like this. We decide this is how it should be. We ignore what we are when we start thinking like that. Because we take the external information or stimuli and say,“I want to be like that“ or “I want to be there,“ then it’s a conflict. It’s a struggle between what you are and what you want to be.
Another thing is nature is natural. Nature is spontaneous. When you are spontaneous, you are one with nature. We are growing older each day. We are not growing younger. It is nature. We do not have a choice. If you understand yourself, you understand the whole of creation. This is what Shiva represented. The whole consciousness represented inside. You are the whole consciousness.

A STORY OF HANUMANJI AND RAMA

There was Sri Rama (Lord Rama), his team and the team of all the monkeys. Rama fought his war to reclaim his wife, Sita from Ravana’s custody. The war was won, Rama and the family united, they were returning by flight. At that time there was technology to fly. They were returning over the sea, over the ocean, to the home town. Ram, Sita, Hanumanji, Lakshmi, were all on the flight. Sita was playing with her ring, and it slipped off and fell into the sea. Hanumanji, being a very loyal servant, jumped into the sea to retrieve the ring. He went all the way down, however he found many rings there. So he didn’t know which was her ring. Today, if it happened, somebody would have taken all the rings. Because it is a good idea, you can sell the rest (laughter). However Hanumanji was a very dharmic, honest person so he came back to the flight and said,“I couldn’t find your ring. rama-gives-ring-anguleeyakam-hanuman-ramayan-desibantuI found several rings, but I didn’t know which is yours.“ Rama said,“In her ring, Rama is written.“ Hanumanji went down again and checked. All the rings had Rama written on them. (Laughter). He was confused again. He went back and Rama said,“See, we have repeated this drama in every era. In every era there was a Rama, there was a Hanuman and there was this incident. Don’t think that you are here in this life. We have done this job many times.“

So each time when the Golden age happens, there is degeneracy. Frequency changes to Treta, then again it goes down to Krishna’s time, then sinks very low in our time, which is greed and power and torture and all such traits. Then again you go back to the Golden age. We repeat the process again. Like that this is the seventh time we are going through the same process. Most of the angels, gods, demi-gods, all these including people, get transformed. They change in each era. A set of angels who operate in this time, will be completely gone and another set will be happening. Likewise we are reincarnating. And what I talk about today, I probably talked about seven times before as well. To the same audience :) (Laughter) And we still didn’t understand each other.
Q: What will happen after that?
A: There is a shift of root. Not all the people can move into the next era. What we operate in today is the fourth root, the emotional root. During the shift happening from the emotional to the intellectual root, one third of the beings will be destroyed and removed from the Earth because they cannot change their frequency. Those who can evolve to that frequency which is compatible to that time, can move. The rest will finish.
There are two eligibility factors which you can use as a yardstick. One is inner emptiness. You are just like water. You are empty inside where you are not worried about the image, ego, identifications, you are just feeling natural in the world. Such people are easy to shift into a different frequency. However if you are rigid within one frequency, then what happens is the most rigid of trees is the readiest for axe. The other factor is flexibility. If you are extremely flexible you may easily slip into the next level of vibration, from the fifth to the sixth which is the spiritual shift, that takes you to the Golden age.
So you can see from the fourth root, now we have seven billion people, seven billion beings, one third will go. One third will be systematically removed. Look at the natural calamities happening now. Unprecedented. So many people are dying. What you see in Nepal now, the number of dead they announced is about 10% of what actually occurred. Because they themselves could not go to the interior villages so how many survived, nobody knows. This is one. Then from the intellectual to the spiritual root, again one third will go. The rest are going to move to the spiritual root. Spiritual root is almost in tally with the Golden age. This is the filtering.
There are people like me, in the body and out of the body too, who are helping people to evolve. You don’t need to be in the body to help. You can guide telepathically. You can guide through energy. For example a lot of people who connect to me energy-wise get the message. Actually you don’t need to talk. Vibration is matching. Like when you tune your TV to a particular frequency, you get a set of channels so any master can talk to you. Any master can guide you. It doesn’t matter. Initially you will think about whether it is Mohanji talking or somebody else talking. Later you will say,“It doesn’t matter. Is the talk worthwhile? Is the message good for me?“ What blocks us many times is that we expect to receive a message from this particular person in a physical form. Then we stop all other messages. Flexibility is very important for evolution. Even if the message is from a small child, it should be accepted and then we flow. At the end of the day you will not be bound by any concept. We do not have people today. We have only concepts with faces. When we talk about too many dos and don’ts, this is ok, this is not ok, our education, our religion, our society give us a lot of these. Ok, I believe that violence is not ok. Because it hurts somebody. This is not ok. But apart from that, what is ok, and what is not ok? When we have many dos and don’ts, what are we destroying? Our naturality. And look at our morality. I was watching a programme. A couple of years ago in France the government called a lot of people to discuss about how to revive the economy. There were ministers of the country, plus businessmen. The minister of defence stood up and said to the president or whoever,“You are insulting me. I am sitting next to a porn film maker. I am ashamed to sit next to him.“ That guy stood up and said,“I only teach people how to make love. What are you doing? All the people whom you support and who support you are war machine makers. They kill people. They destroy humanity. And what are you sponsoring? You’re sponsoring wars. What morality are you talking about? Because of my films nobody killed anybody.“ This is one side.
Now look at our world today. The medicines, vaccines, those kind of things are destroying the future generations. But we would rather see a programme about whom Tom Cruise slept with or who is sleeping with Brad Pitt than these incidents. Real things where future generations are being destroyed. But we are not worried about that. We spend a lot of money and buy a book or periodical to see who the superstars are sleeping with. I come from a country where we have a natural medical system called Ayurveda. My mother has always been traditionally Ayurvedic. My mother’s grandfather used to be the chief physician of the royal family of Mysore. I was speaking to one of my mother’s uncles. He is no more. I asked him about the importance of Ayurveda. He said,“We never considered human beings as the only worthwhile entities.“ We always gave the same importance to a tree, or a bird or an animal or a human being. We never exploited nature. We made people in tune with nature. Those days when you went to a physician, they would check your horoscope. They would look at the horoscope first to see what the stars said, then they connected it to Ayurveda. So everything was integrated at one time. Why do we have to inject an animal and destroy the life of an animal to make medicine? There was a high level of potential medicines right from nature to cure everything, even strengthen immunity. Indifference is not a solution for today’s morality, the system. Be aware. We need to be aware. How much you can do about it, you do not know, but you can work within your capacity. Being aware is important and being available is important.
Q: As for these seven cycles which repeat themselves over time, if we have already done this seven times before, is there any progress through any of these cycles? Is there at least a slight difference? Or why does it happen if it is completely the same seven times over?
A: Exactly. What is the point? I am asking you. Awareness is the point. And roleplay is the point.
If you understand that even our life today is repetitive. The same thing is happening. Even our emotions are happening in the same cycle. The same thing happens in a larger picture too. Life is happening in the same cycle. I told the story so that you understand. On the small level of all our emotions, we attract the same kind of people into our life. We attract the same situations, we attract so many things which are repetitive. One life time also happens that way. I told the story to make this point. What is the point of this drama then? To understand that this is drama. Until you know this is drama, there is no solution. Once we know this is a joke, we start laughing. Otherwise there is, like we said, tension for examination. When we know it’s a joke, we will be laughing,“What a joke I am living!“ (Laughter) A small spark is enough to catch fire. Small level of awareness, hit at the right spot, becomes full awakening.

Mohanji quote - Your state is absolute silence
Q: I have a question through the expression of an experience. One day when I saw the message that we would have satsang with you, I fell asleep in that good happy vibration and I had a vivid dream. We are with Mohanji and suddenly he enters the room accompanied by a young swami. The whole room became bright with their appearance. I stood up and touched the young swami’s feet. I felt the need to surrender completely. As I was getting up, I felt his hand on my back. He decisively kept me in that position for such a long time when I started repeating to myself ’heidakan Babaji’. I felt there was some purpose in it. After that there were a few detonations in my heart chakra. When I woke up, that awareness was with me and I knew that he did something. I also have much less problems with my heart.
A: Physical presence is not necessary at all. The point is that in the astral plane connection with consciousness is important. It also doesn’t matter which form helps you. The matter is that help happened. This is more important. Like it has recently happened to an actress from Bollywood. She was filming on an island of the Pacific. She was having a problem because she could not do the shooting continuously, she was crying to Baba. Saying, ’Please help!’ I replied. She sent me a message,“I never prayed to you, why did you reply?“ I said,“Is the reply right?“ She said,“Very much right.“ That’s it.
Q: In quantum physics the concept of time doesn’t exist. Could you comment on that?
A: Yes. It’s absolutely true. Concept of time exists only when there is material. Time is related to space. There is no space where I am not. When there is no space, there is no time. Space created time. Time is created for experience. When there is no experience, there is no time.
Q: So you agree with that?
A: Yes, absolutely. It doesn’t matter whether I agree or not. A Fact is a fact. Agreement has a root in ego, right? I love to confuse you :)

Q: In common life situations, when I have an exam, I study for a long time and when the exam comes, I have a big jittery feeling and can’t concentrate, I feel afraid and know mentally that there is no reason for this but it is stronger than me. What do we do in such situations, and how do we tackle such emotions and stress?
A: Mind is a very good servant but a very bad master. The shift has to happen to the intellect. Mind is the gross aspect, which is a seat of emotions. Intellect is the subtle aspect. The moment you shift to the intellect, it’s a completely different boardgame. It’s not getting excited about it, or anxious about it. It’s important to sit back, connect to your spine, more and more withdrawn inside rather than the frontal lobe. Usually when you are in the frontal lobe, you are anxious. The more connected to the spine you are, the less anxious you are. That is why we have a 360-degree meditation.

Express Abundance

Skype satsang with Mohanji in the USA, 10th May 2015, part 2

Mohanji quote - If you want to unleash yourself completelyQ: Is there any way of helping a young man who is a very beautiful soul, who has a problem with alcohol and drugs because of the pain of this material world?
M: We are all in the same situation, in the time of low frequency. The only thing is we do not use drugs. That’s all. A person who is emotional by nature will fall into the traps of anything of this nature, e.g. some kind of drug abuse or some kind of intoxicant. This is escapism. A truly emotional person will tend to be an escapist. But a person operating in the intellect, awareness, will not use that. We all like to escape. All of us want to run away from something. Something is not right with everybody. Some people take it in an extreme way, some people are able to manage it. That’s all. I don’t think any person is 100% satisfied in this plane. A person who is a drug addict definitely needs rehabilitation. There is no point in asking him to meditate. He will have some drugs and he will meditate, not otherwise, ha, ha. First of all, Sai Baba said this beautifully, “If you want to change, first remove your weaknesses one by one. Take your time. Understand yourself, understand your weaknesses, and try to dilute them. Slowly, slowly dilute all the weaknesses, and then fill that space with positive action.” This is what he said. He didn’t say, “Ok, keep it on one side and then do it.” Because it won’t work that way. I’ve seen people who say, “Oh, I stopped it Mohanji because you said I should not drink alcohol, I stopped it.” Then a month or two months later, they said, “I just had a couple of drinks because I was in this company.” Like that, these are all excuses. That means the will power was not strong enough. There should be conviction inside the person first of all. Externally you have limitation. But if the person says, “I want to change,” then even if you do not exist, he will change. So anybody, for any change needs to have an inner call. An inner call is important for a change. Otherwise change can be induced but it will not be permanent. Many people say, “Mohanji, you said so, I am going to be different.” Because Mohanji told you to be different then if somebody else says something, he will be different again. It should not be that way. I am only suggesting that this is good for you, that is not good for you. I am just showing both sides. But it is up to the inner call or inner conviction to actually implement it in life. This is very important. So unless the person has an inner call or somebody can guide one to that level, there will be no change. We can actually stress ourselves out too much and nothing may happen. This is the way it goes. I am not disappointing you. I am telling you the truth.

Q: Can the Power of Purity meditation help cleanse his mind?
A: Well, to some level. He may even start rejecting the Power of Purity meditation. It’s the mind. If there is consistency, definitely there will be a result. But how can consistency happen? There should be some will power, some will inside. The Power of Purity meditation has transformed a lot of people. Also, even simple things like offering food to a family deity or family saint, offering food to your ancestors, this has changed people. Not even the meditation. When you move into the subtle aspects of you, it is transformative for sure. But how consistent are you? And is it environmental consistency? It means in a certain environment you have consistency. Is it people consistency? It means that there are certain people with whom you have consistency. Is it situational consistency? It means in some situations in time you have consistency. This should not happen. Consistency should be beyond all these, time, space, situation, people. Then transformation is guaranteed. There’s no doubt about it.
Otherwise, if a situation brings a consistency or a particular level of equilibrium, then it goes away. Then again he sometimes goes back and worsens so much that it is difficult to recover again. I have seen this, too. There are people who are very good in an ashram, in a regulated environment. After that they go to a public place, into the city life, and they immediately start drinking alcohol and do all that kind of stuff. What is the use!? Then they come back into the ashram once a year, being absolutely good boys, no problem. Then they go to the city, and go back to the old ways. So this is something that is not going to be transformative.
So it is important, the Power of Purity can definitely help, if it helps, I am very happy. But the person has to decide. The man has to say, “I want to change, and I will!” Then we can help him.

Q: For the past few years I’ve been experiencing very negative things. Is there anything I can do change this negative karma?
M: What does “negative karma” mean? What is negative karma?

Q: By negative karma, I mean negative experiences within the future.
M: There is no negative or positive karma. Karma is only about fulfillment. We can term it as negative, positive or neutral, but karma is karma. It is always derived out of a desire. If you have a desire for an experience, we can easily say, “I have never desired it.” Do you know how it actually happens?
When you go to the temple, I am not talking about you but in general, and pray to a god, “Give me a car or a house,” what you are telling god is that you have a deficiency, you don’t have a house and you don’t have a car. You don’t have something – this is the inherent meaning you are sending out. Your words could be anything, but your inherent meaning is that you lack something. It goes and is registered as lack of something. Something is missing. The manifestation of that is the feeling of missing something. This is what is creating karma. Understand it is not what you speak, do or say, but what is the essence of all this. That creates karma. When you say they are negative in nature, maybe your impressions are negative in nature. If you express abundance, which means, “I am happy with what I have!” being satisfied with what you have, “Ok, this is the situation, this is the time, this is the space, I have a body, I have health, I have a mind, intellect, awareness, so I am happy. In that mode, then tell god, “Thank you very much for all this.” So what you say and the entire meaning is the same because you are feeling inside you are happy, and you are telling the god that you are happy. There is always the connection, what you say and what you feel is the same.
Instead, what most people express to the world is, “I don’t have it, this is not right, that is not right, why is this person like that, why is that person behaving like that” Every moment what we are projecting, what we are transmitting is something which is missing or something which is not right. That gets manifested over and over again. That is why we say help the helpless people. Serve the birds, animals so that they become satisfied and your mind becomes full. There is a thing called being rich inside. Rich inside is not about the money or materials you have, but you are satisfied with what you have, so you are very rich inside. These are the real rich people of the world. The real rich people are those who are rich inside. External richness can change, it can come and go, and it can actually be manipulated by other people as well. But nobody can touch inner richness. It stays with you and this is your property. This is what makes your life good or bad. Otherwise karma is not negative or positive. Karma is karma, that’s it. So how you handle your life determines what you experience. How you articulate, how you express, everything is important. That makes your life.

Mohanji quote - Never form opinions aboutQ: Why is it that the things we want most in life, we don’t succeed in? Was it lack of hard work or was it just destiny?
M: The answer is in the question itself. We say what we really want is not happening. That means we already created a frame around it saying oh, what I really want will not come. That has become your operating machine. It’s like a software in your computer. It means you are operating from a decision or conviction that things may not materialise. When we approach anything with that attitude, it will not come. First of all, approach everything with positivity. Ok, things will come, let me put in my best effort. Actually speaking, the fruit of action is not in our control. What will happen with our action is not in our control. We can only prepare food, but the people who come there should have the appetite to eat it. We have our chef who prepares beautiful multicoloured food. But if people do not find it tasty, it is a waste. Like that, we can only prepare, we can only create. The result of it is not in our hands. We should have full faith in our creation. We should have full faith in what we do. The moment you have full faith in whatever you do, whatever the result, it will not affect us. The beauty and happiness is in the creation. When you are completely involved in it, you are enjoying it, and then don’t expect the result. Let it happen. Then what happens is if you are not bound by result, if you said things which I want won’t come, that question itself will not happen. “I am not worried about what comes to me. I am going to put in my best effort.” Glory always happens with the right work. “Right work” means that you are completely in it. The work where you are partially in it cannot succeed or bring you good result. But an activity where your whole heart and soul is in it, whatever the result is, you will be satisfied with the effort itself. You should be happy with your effort. Put in your best effort and leave the rest. Once you are not worried about the result, the best results will come, maybe much more than what you expect. But if you are bound by expectation, then more likely than not it will be a failure because we are bound. The expectation has bound us. This is how life is operating. Life happens this way. So please understand that there is no way you can be unsuccessful. You have every right, like any other person to be very successful. Most people who we see as successful in the world are people who have not set boundaries. The moment you set boundaries, success eludes you. To those who have not set boundaries, things will happen.
Some of you know how I operate. I do not keep agendas. There are plans and if it works, it works, and if it doesn’t work, I have no problem. So there is less conflict in life. You will be flowing more or less smoothly. There will be obstructions from people, from time, situations, events, environment, from everything. However that should not affect you. If that happens, do your job, move on. Once you know that your job is to put in the best effort, within your capacity, and within your time frame. Forget about all the frames and don’t think that things won’t work well.
Second option, surrender to the masters, or gurus, or god saying, “I’ve done my part, now I am leaving it to you.” You have to do your part before you leave it, don’t leave everything to the guru saying, “Clean my room, clean my house,” it should not happen. You do your part, then leave the rest to the master, and the master takes over, no problem.

Q: Do you find the guru or does the guru find you?
M: First of all guru is sitting in you. You don’t have to find him. It’s already inside. And if that internal guru feels you need external guidance, the external guru happens. But your main guru always sits inside you. That is your primary, secondary and the final guru. So when you connect more and more to yourself, if that guru feels that you need external guidance, then you will meet a guru. Understand that guru and disciple are all situational stuff. When a person feels he is a disciple, then another person becomes a guru. It is not that one person is a disciple and another person is guru all the time. It’s all situational. When you think about a guru, it is again situational. Do you need any guidance? That time guru will happen. It is not that guru stands always dressed up like a guru and gives you answers. That’s not the case. If you look at the whole world and how it operates, everything is situational. One person we call a guru. When he walks along the road, he is a pedestrian. When he is with his children, he is a father. When he is with his wife, he is a husband. It’s all multiple roles. Better to remove all the frames and we can see things clearly. Your guru whom you are relating to or you should relate to is already within you. That is your true guru. The rest are all external. If you chase an external guru, you can very well be disillusioned because you chase somebody with an expectation. I was told that Paramahamsa Yogananda (I think after he left his body, after mahasamadhi) somebody found out that he had two children from two different women. Some people were distracted and they stopped practising kriya. I was laughing, Paramahamsa never lost anything, he lived his life and he left his body. Now because of your mental frame, you stopped practising kriya. Who loses? The person who stopped practising loses. So it is important to destroy all mental images, focus on elevation of consciousness, this can be understood through your inner silence. Whatever happens outside, it doesn’t matter. We are peaceful inside. If you have that focus, nothing will touch you. Guru means a person who shows you the light.Mohanji 1a

Breathe Vertically

Satsang with Mohanji in Belgrade, 16th May, 2015

Mohanji - laugh 1a

How do we relate in this world? This is a million dollar question. Through peace. Be peaceful inside.

Q: I’ve been to various meditations and tried a few methods. I always had a goal to achieve, something to solve with these, but none of them worked. I was told that I did not believe in these methods enough. Could you tell me whether I believe in them or not? (laughter)
A: The problem is neither with you, nor the meditation. The problem is with the time. This time is very fast. For many techniques there is not enough time for them to sink in and work on us. There has been frequency deterioration over a period of time. The time is restless. Just imagine a person who is relatively restless, for example, somebody is sick, and in hospital, and you want to tell him about a new proposal. Do you think he will understand? His mind is occupied with the family member in hospital. Most people in today’s world are restless, irrespective of countries, or where they are from, even if it is a city or a village. The restlessness is brought on by the time because the time is very, very fast. Before we realise it, it’s morning, it’s already evening. So we are constantly in movement mode. In that mode, no meditation can actually work in an effective way. In such a situation, organised meditation doesn’t work. The best method is to just decide that you will not say any word without your mind being present. No action will be taken by you without your mind being present. If you make that particular decision, you will switch into the level of meditation where you are observing yourself, watching yourself, and going through your emotions, going through your daily life. Once you catch that thread, you are always in meditation. It may not be an organised meditation, but you are always in the mood of meditation. This is very easy to say. Almost all of us use the front side of the brain, the frontal lobe. That is why we are prone to anxiety, fears, and have various types of phobias. It is all because we are frontal lobe oriented. But if we start shifting to the middle and the back, there is no anxiety, there is no confusion. We will be balanced. Each meditation, each technique, each guru, master or each path, each religion, is supposed to bring this equanimity into us. When you say you cannot sit and meditate, it means the frontal lobe is very active, which is normal. All our education systems are pushing us to be intellectually correct, or intellectually aware, but we never think about how we can remain balanced amongst all possible situations in a life time.
So first, you should not do any activity without your mind being present. Your mind is with the activity. When you have your food, let the mind be with the food, so that you experience the food 100%. When you play with your child, be in that activity. So that you have an experience as well as fulfillment all the time. This is one aspect.
Likewise, whatever you say, ensure that the mind is available so that there are no excess words, there is no unconscious talk, unconscious discussion, or even argument or fight. Nothing will happen, just concentrate on the words with mind available.
Third level is thoughts. You cannot control thoughts. They are happening. After thoughts happen, we realise we had that thought. This is the first level of perpetual meditation.

Meditation group in Belgrade, Serbia - Satsang with Mohanji 1
Two techniques to counter the speed of time

1. As I said, we are frontal lobe oriented. How do we connect to the back side? It’s not easy. For that you need to shift your level of awareness for at least some time every day. This can be a meditation. While you are sitting and watching a programme, feel the spine for a few minutes. Just be aware that you have a spine. No need to do any meditation, feel the spine. When you sit in the car and the car is at the traffic light and you see the sign 50 seconds to 40 seconds etc. It counts down. At that time during these seconds, feel the spine. Like that, feel the spine many times a day. Just realise you have a spine. After some time, you will tend to move to the spine faster, and in a few months, depending on how fast you can connect, you whole perception changes. From horizontal, it will become vertical. Your awareness shifts. Your understanding level changes. It is like that. If I am sitting here, I can see this much. If I stand up, my view is different. I can see from above. My awareness changes to a different dimension, just by being aware of the spine.

2. Also, when you close your eyes and feel your spine, you can automatically see that your awareness has shifted to the third eye. So if you concentrate on the third eye directly, this is the junction where 72,000 meridians are connected. Energy goes to that and reaches the 72,000 locations of our system. At the same time, there is always the possibility that when we concentrate and meditate on the third eye, it can overenergise and even lead to paralysis. This has happened even to saints in the Himalayas. They concentrated on the third eye for too long, and then they couldn’t move because their whole system was paralysed. However if you try concentrating on your spine instead, there will be no overenergisation. What is needed in the third eye, will go there, the rest will be located in the spine.
So this is not your problem, this is a problem with time. I’ve given you two techniques to counter the speed of time. Because you have to go with time and be with yourself. That’s the only way we can survive this time.

Furthermore, we must never feel that there is some deficiency in us. This is actually mind’s projection. Deficiencies are always mind’s projection. Mind says you can’t do it. That’s not true. We can definitely do it, but the concepts which we’ve fed into our mind, create an impression that we can’t do it. So there is some problem with us. That has to be completely wiped away. I’m fine just like anybody else. Then each step you take, see if you can remove the mental block. We may not have it, we collect it from the society, also people tell us that you may not be able to do it. Like in the programme in Dubai, somebody said, ’’Mohanji, you can do it, but I am not like you.“ I said that’s nonsense. ’’I have tried and I had conviction.“ That’s the only thing. In the early 2000s when I was practising on my own, I used to wake up at 3am every day, I couldn’t sleep beyond it. I used to be a corporate head of country, so we sometimes had late parties but again, I woke up at 3am and from 3-8am I completely detached myself from the world and meditated. I sometimes chanted, then I meditated, connected to the spine and dissolved. So five hours was dedicated to myself whatever was happening in the world. This helped. After all these years it has given the awareness which I am sharing with people. It is always a discipline and conviction. Even if nothing happens, it’s ok. In everybody’s stage of evolution in spirituality, the first is the experience. We experienced meditation, something is happening, we are very happy. After some time, stagnation. The same thing cannot give the same result. So you stagnate. Most people stop there. Then they go to another programme. There is a sensation for a few days. Then again stagnation. So people do not cross over to higher levels. This is why people do not achieve something.
Somebody asked Buddha,“How can we be like you?“ Buddha said,“That is very simple. Do the penance like I did. Do tapas. He said,“I cannot do that. Because you have done extreme penance to reach that stage.“ Then Buddha said,“Then serve the people, serve the poor, do something for the world.“ If that is also difficult, third is merge your consciousness to mine. Look at me, connect to me, whenever your mind is with me, you are with me. If your body is with me, you may not necessarily be with me because if your mind is outside, you are outside. If you want to be with me, let your mind be with me. Wherever you are, no problem. So you will start moving into my consciousness and you will achieve what I achieved. “

Satsang with Mohanji in Belgrade 16 May 2015

Almost all of us use the front side of the brain, the frontal lobe. That is why we are prone to anxiety, fears, and have various types of phobias. It is all because we are frontal lobe oriented. But if we start shifting to the middle and the back, there is no anxiety, there is no confusion. We will be balanced.

Q: On our path of seeking, how to know whether some challenge is something which keeps us on our path, or if it is an old energy, something which distracts us? How to know that by our choice in the course of action we stay on the right path?
A: It is very simple, how do you know you are growing? It is by how much peace you have inside, whatever happens outside. This is the best yardstick you can use.
How do we shed energies which we don’t want? You have to actually stop talking about it, thinking about it. There are three levels where we attract. First is emotion, that we think about it. We keep emotion. Second is the intellect, we analyse it,“Oh, why did this happen? Why did this man come into my life? Why did this event happen? Why this situation?“ All these things are actually more or less hooking you to the situation. Third is we sometimes act on it. We become very aggressive, we do something which hurts us, then it hurts other people.
Sometimes similar people keep coming back to our life over time. Why does that happen? It is always because a set emotion is at play. It’s like a CD. It plays again and again. So we attract that kind of people, we attract that kind of situation. We attract that kind of emotion for which we need to observe and let go. You can go through it but at the same time, do not connect to it. It’s practice. You need to practise it. There is no shortcut towards it. Of course, now we have regression therapy and all the different things where you can move into your subconscious and take something out. That’s different. For normal life, acceptance of your current reality is extremely important. A very easy way to get out of this cycle is again through the spine. Spine helps a lot. We have no idea how changed we can be the moment we shift the operating level from the front to the back or the middle. Immediately so many things you consider as very important will go. Many people whom you felt were very important, too. Some of them might be taking your energy away all the time, yet you still keep them because you are used to them. All those things will drop off and you’ll be free from inside. The moment you are free from inside, the whole world is yours. Mind is a very good servant, but a very bad master. As a servant it is very good because when you eat food, the mind is with the tongue, you feel the taste to experience the food. When you listen to music, mind is with the ears, you actually enjoy the music. Whatever you do, whatever you feel, whatever you experience, mind has a role to play. At the same time if mind is controlling you, then it’s a different story. It creates havoc. So mind is a good servant but a bad master.

Q: I feel that I have became too peaceful, that I have lost all emotion, if something happens, I am not bothered at all. I find it difficult to communicate with people. Is that normal or not?
A: This is what you have been looking for, what you have been asking Baba all the time. Now you want to go back to the restlessness!? (Laughter)

Q: I feel a big attachment to the suffering of others. I can deal with my own suffering very well. Ok, it is karma, no problem. But injustice and the suffering of others, especially animals disturbs me a lot emotionally and I don’t know what I can do. All seems to be insufficient. What should I do to transform that to be better?
A: This is again degeneracy of time. In the Indian system, we have 1.7 billion years of the Golden age, Sathya yuga. There is no ritual, no chanting, nothing, all people existing at that time are of master’s stature like Sai Baba. Everybody is like that, godly. There is no evil, injustice, negativity.
Then comes Treta yuga, Lord Rama’s time. This is approximately 1.4 million years. That is the time when the good and the evil started working on this planet. This is according to the scriptures. During the Treta time, good and evil are at different places, not in the same location. But they have a conflict.
Then comes Lord Krishna’s time, 800,000 years of Dwapara yuga. Good and evil were in the same family.
Now, 4000 years of Kali yuga, the time we are in, good and evil are in the same person. Sometimes one is good, sometimes one is bad. There is a huge conflict inside an individual.
So when you look at the whole life, the environment creates a lot of effect. Sometimes the environment makes people violent. Most criminals are not born criminals. They are situational criminals. They did something because of the pressure of time, then they went to jail. It’s happening like that.
In this time the whole machine is run by emotions. Look at the world outside. People are extremely emotional, full of anger, hatred, all sorts of things. We don’t talk about love much and even if we do, people are suspicious,“Why does this man love me?“ If you say,“unconditional love“ this is absolute nonsense. We only love for a reason. If there is money in your pocket, then love is ok. This kind of situation is the lowest frequency. In such low frequency, destruction, death, pain, trauma, all these things are possible. And the collective consciousness of the people is low. Look at the general consciousness of the generation from a world perspective. What are 7 billion people thinking about? Not many people are thinking about helping other people, maybe 10%. And they help other people only as a ritual. Most of the other people are in chaos, struggling, running, they want to make money. For example, I was talking to a group of students in New York . They all study various courses. I asked them,“Why have you taken this subject?“
80% of the students said,“This gives us a lot of money.“ That’s the wrong reason for taking up the subject. But today the world is operating on greed i.e. making money, competition. So what you see outside as injustice is because of this. Look at our modern medicines. Most of the medicines that we use today are tried on animals. A lot of animals have died so that we survive today. We have always had a beautiful natural system called Ayurveda. My mother’s family has always been traditionally ayurvedic. My mother’s uncle was one of the most respected ayurvedic practitioners of his time. Before he passed away I asked him about violence in the treatment. He answered,“Ayurveda never believes that this is for humans. All beings are the same before Ayurveda. The whole world belongs to everybody, every species. Ayurveda has never believed that this was created for human beings. For example, we had a science for elephants. I have seen people who could communicate with elephants, wild elephants who have killed people. I have seen one man talking to them and the elephants went to one side. We have always had all these sciences, but because of greed we destroyed most of it. And this was created by saints over years, not by injecting it into animals, not by killing species. It has been derived from nature. Nature gave it to them.
If you look at the whole of nature, god has given us three energy sources with which we can live peacefully and which will not pollute the world: sun energy (solar energy), wind energy, water energy. All these things cannot pollute the world, but what do we mostly use today? Fuel from the underground which pollutes the environment. It’s like guts are being spilled out. All the toxins, all the organs inside are outside. The world has become like that. Why has it happened? It’s the time. It’s the frequency of the time. When we are in the lowest frequency, greed is the operating level. That is creating injustice.

So how do we relate in this world? This is a million dollar question. Through peace. Be peaceful inside. Ok, the environment is like this, people are like this, systems are creating people like this, so how should we make a difference? By being peaceful. By being calm. So people come to you and ask,“How can you be peaceful in this situation?“ That’s the only way and that’s the best way. Lead by example. Do not be angry with yourself. This is not good because it gives you illness. Do not be angry with the world outside. That is also not good enough. But sometimes you can express anger just to convey a message. Just for intensity. It means, like a snake you can hiss, but you should not bite. So the other person knows you can be dangerous and will go away. If you are angry with yourself, you will surely have an illness later. So it’s not good to be angry with yourself, accept yourself.“I’m not happy with the situation, but let me be.“ Second is don’t be angry with society. Instead, replace the anger with love. Your expression should be love instead of fighting and shouting. Say,“Come here, I love you. I’m with you.“ If you convey this message, it will be very soothing for the other person.“You are not alone. I love you.“ These are very strong messages. And you should mean it, it is not just the words. If that is the level of operating, a lot of peace will happen outside of you and inside of you. And the richness from inside is permanent. If you make a lot of money there is no guarantee it will stay with you, but if you are rich inside, you carry it always. So whenever you get angry, think about me (laughter).

Q: We are in a time which is speeding up and since 21st Dec 2012, when the Sun, Earth and planets were in alignment. Since then we have been exposed to huge electromagnetic waves from the cosmos, from the core of the Earth, aiming to change us into 3rd, 4th, 5th dimensions. As these energies are strong, how to align ourselves with them? Probably through love and peace, but can you tell us more about it?

A: There is nothing for us to do with this because we cannot do anything other than what we are conditioned for now, but the energies have definitely shifted and are shifting. It is a process. It is happening. The main shift is from the fourth root to the fifth root. The fourth is the emotional root, the fifth is the intellectual root. The fifth root is very close to the soul root, the consciousness. This shift itself can destroy one third of the total beings of this world because this has the potential to wipe away one third of the total beings of the Earth, not just the population.

The major shift is in the pattern of the breath. From horizontal to vertical. We will try a small technique:

Close your eyes, keep your spine erect, I’ll guide you.

No movement for a few minutes. Go to the root of your spine. Breathe consciously ujay. When it reaches the top of the head, hold it. Then release it all the way down. Breathe in, hold, breathe out, hold. Breathe in, hold 10 seconds, breathe out, hold 10 seconds. Repeat three more times.

Meditation group in Belgrade, Serbia - Satsang with Mohanji

Simple breath, but how it made the mind empty! This is just one of the techniques, where if you empty your mind, you are ready to receive higher energy. All you have to do is empty the mind. Trash, trash, trash.

So your question was how to adapt and be eligible for higher energy, the answer is emptiness. (laughter)

Q: I am here with my boyfriend and you came into our lives last year and really, look, my tears have started flowing, really, my boyfriend has changed sooo much, he has found his peace and our life has moved into a completely different, more beautiful direction. Now, in our everyday conversation, his attitude is, “I don’t want to hear any negative news, don’t tell me those things“. If I want to tell him about some film he doesn’t want to watch it, it affects his peace. If there is some news about someone’s tragedy, he doesn’t want to listen to it, in order not to disturb his peace. I think one has to hear about the tragedy of other people, to see what is happening. What do you think about it?

A: Should I agree or disagree? (Laughter)
The source of everything is an impression. When I say,“monkey“, suddenly you have a picture of a monkey, an image and characteristics of a monkey in your mind. Where does it come from? This is already in the system. Impression is the root cause of all our concepts, all our expressions, all our imaginations, everything is based on impression. Impression is the data that we collect from the world outside using the body, the mind and the intellect.
Running away from the situation is not a good idea, because actually that is called escapism. At the same time, getting involved without equipment, without proper preparation cannot help you. Like if you are in a war without a weapon, it means you will be killed. Collecting a lot of impressions from the news, television and people is not a good idea because it adds to contamination. The less impressions, the less concepts. The less concepts, the freer we are. We are having inner freedom. But let’s say income tax law changed in this place. Because I did not see the news I did not know, so I didn’t pay the tax. What will happen? You cannot say I believe in Mohanji and God, so I will not pay a tax. There is a saying in Islam, in Muslim,“Believe in Alah, but tie your camel.“ (Laughter) So it is important to know what is going on around you so that you can be prepared. At the same time if you keep the impressions and keep creating concepts, it will bind you. So you need to strike a balance between these two. Be aware but at the same time do not be involved.
Last week, a man told me,“Mohanji, you do not know how much I love you. I cannot control the love. I’ll be ready to kill somebody who is against you!“ (laughter in audience) This is very dangerous you know. (laughter) I said to him,“Now if people are not very nice, it is not good to be passive, don’t just lie down and get the beating. But at the same time don’t kill. Both extremes are bad.“ Somewhere in the middle, be kind, yet at the same time don’t take nonsense.

So I think I’ve told you the answer. Be aware but don’t be emotional about it, so that emotions are not stored inside. That will not create concepts. The more concepts you have, the more bound you are. The more paralysed you are.

Q: We know we should let things go, shed the clutter, could you give me advice on how to do get rid of accumulated anger? I have a lot of it in me as a consequence of various suppressions. Besides hitting and kicking a pillow or a bag, how to cleanse this as even my children tell me I ’ve forgotten how to laugh.

A: This is the situation for everybody. It is not only your accumulated anger. It is inherited, too. We sometimes inherited it from the family. Let us not think of ourselves only as individuals. We are an individual for the outside world, but we have a baggage from the family as well. We have our own baggage which we collected in this life, but we also have baggage from the ancestor. Understand one thing. The heavier the baggage, the more expensive is the travelling. Especially if it is other people’s. The best way to counter it is to help people whom you do not know. Just help people whom you do not know without any reason.mohanjis-50th-birthday-celebration-at-mohanji-ka-aangan-jammu-1 Many people think that to help other people you need a lot of money. This is absolutely not true. It’s not about the money. It’s your attitude that makes a difference in the world. I’ll give you one example. Somebody similar to the question you asked. This is in the North of India. One person who is very rich (very rich in the sense she is fine with her money, she doesn’t need to work) was full of anger. She loves me a lot but she doesn’t love anybody else. I told her,“Take care of my children.“ We have a school center for the children of Islam, like the Gipsies, who are three to fifteen years old. We have 130 children. Many of them are abused. If people knew they came to this place for education, they would beat them up.“ Sometimes a five-year-old girl will be looking after a three-year-old sister. That kind of situation. Very very bad. So I told this woman,“You should take care of this place.“ When she started going and experiencing the pain of small children, she changed completely. She can’t get angry. Because she sees so much of this and she is involved. Suddenly the whole thing changed. Then in 2013, we had a festival called Diwali, she asked the children,“What gift do you want for Diwali?“ They said,“We want Mohanji.“ (laughter) They called me and said,“They want to see you.“ So I went there. It was such a beautiful experience, the love they were sharing and they had only seen me in the picture. They hardly see me. I don’t go there all the time. But with the picture they have developed so much love. Then I asked this person,“How do you feel now?“ She said,“Mohanji you changed my life.“ I said,“I did nothing. You changed it by changing your attitude.“

Q: How to overcome my fear of flying?
A: For fear of flying, I think you have to go for regression. You have to go to the root where it started, and take it out.

Q: How to know which is our true vocation in life?
A: What is good for you is what expands you, what makes you rich inside. Any job you do which is creative in nature, which makes your heart expand, is good for you. When you get up in the morning and you feel,“I am happy, it’s morning! I must go to work.“ That means you love the job. That expands you. That is good for you. But if you feel,“Oh my god it’s morning I have to go to work.“ (laughter) This is not good for you. It’s very simple. What makes you happy, what makes you settled is good for you, whatever you are pushing yourself to do is not.
Remember just one thing. When you are natural, you are powerful. When you are unnatural, you are very weak. If you remember this, you will understand everything else in life.

Q: My parents are very ill, especially my mother, how to help them?
A: Every situation has a root, it’s not only this one day. So first of all, acceptance. This is the situation. Second, give courage, not tears. You have lived your life, because of you a lot of people are happy. Say the good things. Say the best things. Do you know a story of two people in one room?

A STORY about two hospitalised men

There were two sick people in one room in a hospital. One guy was on one side, the other one was next to the window. So the first one could not see what was outside. They were both bedridden. He asked what was outside. The guy next to the window was giving stories of beautiful things, he was telling all the good things. Later on he died and the other guy went there and there was only a wall! All this time the guy who died had entertained the other guy. This way we can make somebody’s life better. But if we sit and cry, we pull ourselves and other people down. Sympathy and self-pity are two things which are like poison. Sympathy and self-pity, just like poison, paralyse you and other people.

Q: How did you know that a huge shift in consciousness happened to you and that you reached the ultimate?
A: Do you want to know the real truth? I still don’t know. I never asked. I never checked. I have never asked if I have arrived or if I have been evolving.
There are various states of the mind. At the beginning we have inquisitiveness to know why this is happening, where I am standing, all these questions keep coming in the mind. Mind is overactive because we are between activity and result. Activity-result, activity-result. Mind asks all the questions,“Where have you reached? Are you enlightened?“ All these questions come. In Sanskrit this is called savitarka samadhi. When you need an answer for all your questions, it is savitarka samadhi. Then it shifts into nirvitarka samadhi where whatever happens, you don’t have any questions. You are absolutely peaceful. You have no questions. Then it shifts even further to a level where whether a thing happens or not, whether a situation is there or not, whether people are coming to see you or not, nothing matters. So at each level, we are in a different mode and we have stopped looking where we have reached. All this will go. Mind becomes absolutely empty.

Changing the Frequency Changes Your Life

Skype satsang with Mohanji in the USA, on 10th May, 2015, part 1

Mohanji quote - Observe yourself, you will knowQ: If certain experiences or patterns keep repeating, is it because I still have a karmic account or am I handling it without awareness?
M: This is actually both.
Firstly, the pattern is normally inbuilt in our constitution. When we take birth and when we go through time, each time we are actually manifesting the inherent pattern over and over again. To cut that off, you need to detach from all the activity. For example, if we are constantly having failures in our activity, we have to look at what sort of emotion we are using for each activity and then consciously one by one, we have to detach and say, ok, let this happen. Second option is, in the spiritual path, surrender the fruits of action, we are not bothering and we are surrendering the fruits of action and we just act as surrender. That is why we call work as worship. Or relationship is worship. Everything becomes worship, then it gets nullified, it gets diluted. Whenever there is ownership, the pattern stays. Whenever there is no ownership, the pattern gets diluted. This is one part.
Secondly, the reason this is happening is because first of all we do not know that we have a pattern. We blame other people. We sometimes just get overwhelmed with this repetition which means we just move on with life, without thinking, without a conscious way, so that it never leaves you.
Third thing is if there is even one relationship that has got a karmic link. Every relationship has a karmic link. Otherwise two people cannot meet. When the karmic link is very clear, we need to understand that each moment, each individual is valid for a particular experience only at that point in time. People come and go, situations change, but then our existence on earth purely depends on what we are or what we are manifesting. This is the key aspect we must understand. Also every pattern has a root cause. First of all, the root is prarabda, the thing which you brought forward. Then the activities of this life reinforce it. It brings us into the same pattern. We should understand both these things. For every activity, ok this is happening, let me handle it and then just move on, so that you always keep the inside clean and completely uncontaminated. Then patterns will dissolve.

Q: Is it true that one cannot attain self-realisation without a living guru?
It’s almost like, ”Can you attain warmth without the help of fire?” It’s almost like that. A living guru who has already crossed over can be a good guide. Likewise a person who is looking for enlightenment and walking towards the path may not even know which way to go. A living guru’s presence has always been glorified by almost all the masters and the scriptures. To illustrate this, I think I have told you a story about Narada.

A STORY about Narada

1 Narada_found_Vishnu_as_macroform
Narada asked Mahavishnu why he was not achieving the highest point. He is a great bhakta, he is a great devotee and he loves Mahavishnu, he chants all the time, but he is not able to touch that spot, the spot where he can taste the honey, the ultimate realisation. Mahavishnu said, ”Because you don’t have a guru, you don’t have a guide.” Then he asked, “Then give me a guide.” So he said, “Walk along the banks of the Ganga early in the morning and the first one whom you see is your guru.” He walked and walked and there was none. Finally he saw a boatman. When he saw the boatman, he was disappointed, “How can a boatman teach realisation? There is no guru.” He went back to Mahavishnu who was very angry. He said, “You are stupid! I told you that you should accept the first person whom you see on the path as your guru. It doesn’t matter who it is! It could be an enlightened master, it could be a boatman, it could be anybody. But an instruction from an avatar, an instruction from a god, should be followed to perfection.” So he was cursed to one thousand lifetimes spent on the Earth. Narada was worried, he went to his father Brahma and told him the story. Brahma said, “Ok, no problem, but everybody has a destiny. Take a lot of paper to Mahavishnu and ask him to write the whole destiny, (like nadi astrologers do. They write about your future lives and past lives), write down the whole history, the whole pattern of what will happen to you in these thousand life times. He gave a lot of paper to Mahavishnu and gave it to him. Basically it was an astrological chart or the destiny chart for a thousand lives. He brought it to Brahma and Brahma said, “Ok, spread it on the ground, and roll over it.” So he spread it on the ground and rolled over it. Then he finished the thousand life times in this rolling. That is why people do the production of rolling in some temples. They roll so that they are actually unwinding the karmic baggage. Then they went back to Mahavishnu. Mahavishnu said, “Do the same, go to the banks of the Ganga and walk.” So he saw the same boatman and when he went closer to the boatman he bowed down and requested to take him as his disciple. Then the boatman turned out to be the Lord Shiva!

The point is that guru is there so that disciples know where they are going. Otherwise they think they are on the right track and what they’re doing is entertaining the mind! What we call practice, is not always practice, it is basically entertaining the mind. Once this is understood, then it’s easier. Somebody who can see from above knows that this is exactly where we are going. It’s much easier. That is why guru is important.

Q: We know that with the present life we have to suffer the karmas and sins of past lives but, why must this be; because we do not remember our past lives.
M: As I said, most of the life times are repetitions. Each life is more or less a reflection of the past lives. First of all the constitution, the character, the mold, it’s the same. Only thing is that life is different. For example, we use the body for a particular period of time, to experience or fulfill a particular set of desires. Then that body is done and then we leave the body, and then we take another body, and again everything is probably a bit of upgrading. For example, you have a laptop and software. After a year or so you have refreshed the software. You upgraded it and it probably has more functions. Like that another software comes and gives you even more functions. Every time a year goes by, you have an upgraded, better computer. It’s almost like that. Each life time there is a bit of upgrading happening there. But the basic structure of the computer remains the same, the constitution, the character, everything remains the same, except the software is getting upgraded that is also what we call awareness and corresponding experiences as well. When you have an upgraded system, experience is different, too. When you have an old primitive system, experience is different. Each life time is like that. That is because we have chosen a particular constitution for a long duration of time. And that keeps on repeating. In order to cut this off, you need to be clearly aware.
Number one, be aware of the accumulation of desires. More and more desires are accumulated each day.
Number two, impressions. When we meet a person, when we go through a situation, when we interact with the world, even when we watch the news, the TV, we watch everything, we are constantly collecting impressions. Each impression has the potential to become an expression. So every expression has a thought or a word or karma behind it. This is the way we are accumulating. It is important to curtail the impressions in thoughts, words, and action. Also, through body, mind, and intellect i.e. three levels of consumption.

There are stages in samadhi. One of the stages of samadhi is called savitarka samadhi. In savitarka samadhi a person experiences a particular thing, but is not worried about the result of it or about the reason for it. If you are not worried about the reason for a particular happening, you already have a level of peace within. Ok, one thing is happening, a situation is happening, it’s fine. You are constantly in that mode, where you are fine, you are ok, so that struggle between why and why not will not be there, “Ok, this is happening, let me handle it.” The levels of peace determine your states of samadhi. Samadhi is a state. Earlier the questioning, doubting, controlling, all these things go and they say, ok, acceptance happens. Everything is fine. Then you go further into the state where whether a thing is there or not, ok. So levels of the samadhi change. As we evolve in the samadhi states, we also decrease the number of life times.

4_yugasUnderstand one more thing. I think we are going through the eighth era, time of Manu. Each time has four segments. One is the golden age, then the Treta yug, Dwapara yug, and the Kali yug. This is the cluster, 1.7 billion years of golden age, where only evolved souls with very, very high frequency can exist. The lower frequency cannot exist on earth. So there is no conflict at that time. Golden age is the time where very few people with very high frequency, operating with siddhis and all those kinds of stuff. Then comes the Treta yug, the time with Sri Rama, again evolved beings, but they have a life span of ten thousand years on average, lesser population, higher frequency. Then comes Dwapara yug. One thousand years is one’s life span, still lesser frequency, a set of entities much less than in Kali yug. Then we come to Kali yug which is only 48,000 years. In the time of Kali, it is a very, very dense and very gross existence and people are all in the mode of emotions, anger, hatred, all those kinds of stuff and that is the time when maximum souls can take birth. Just like if you call some people for satsang you can count the people coming on your fingers. But if you offer alcohol and meat, you will have hundreds more coming. It’s like that. During the time of Kali, there are many more births because in this low frequency time a lot of souls can take birth and also experience the terrestrial. Then it gets recycled again back to Sathya yuga. So we are in the transition now. Each time many of us have taken birth. So the souls who are operating in higher frequency you can very well understand that they have been existing in more than Kali yug. They have been existing in other times, too. Many high masters have continued through each era and they have taken different bodies but they have continued in that frequency and their need for continuing or their purpose of being in the body is just like a beacon of light. Just to show the people or guide the generations saying, “Look here, there is a frequency of this level which you can operate in. Why do you choose a lower one?” Basically they lead by example. There are various masters each time, each generation to show the light and they have probably existed in the era of higher frequency.

Serve the people, animals, birds, in your own way, so that your dimension changes. Your frequency changes.

Serve the people, animals, birds, in your own way, so that your dimension changes. Your frequency changes.

These four together is one Manu time. That continues each time and the eighth Manu time is now coming up. So each time the repetition happens. Each time maybe you and I will take a birth again. In the next Manvantara we will probably have the same conversation. If you remember in Russia they found a microchip which is millions of years old on the stone. It’s on the Internet, you can see that. Where does the microchip come from? They say that aliens deposited it. This is not true. It is not aliens. It is that we actually had a civilization equal to what we are now or more developed than we are now, in another Manvantara, too. Each time we have repeated life, repeated the patterns, everything, these incarnations, so it is important to understand that the lower frequency is a binding frequency and in the lower frequency you can take birth only during the time when it is inducive for you to be on Earth. For example, in the lower frequency you cannot take birth in Sathya yuga, Golden age. Because frequency itself is different, and only elevated beings can take birth then. That is why they say during the Sathya yuga only very few people are on Earth. And also good and evil do not exist together. Good and evil are in different planets, which means it’s a frequency i.e. good means operating in higher frequency. Only they can exist. But in lower frequency, many more can exist. This is to give you a broad picture.
Why you do not know this is because you are not changing the frequency. The moment you are within, you are connected within and you are growing in spirituality, you will definitely understand. It is not difficult to know what you did, what happened in the past, but even on a laymen’s level, if you understand yourself, if you observe yourself, then you will know that, “This is exactly my pattern that I have unconsciously been bound by.” And if you choose to change the pattern, life will change. That is why if we insist on seva activities, serve the people, serve the animals, birds, in your own way, so that your dimension changes. Your frequency changes. This is why all the masters, all the religions, talk about service. It’s very important to have karma yoga (selfless service) mixed in our life.

Q: Unconditional Love is unbinding but what about when I get mad at my roommate for not doing the dishes?
M: Ha, ha, ha, ha. Call it soulmate rather than roommate, then the problem is solved. Expectation is the problem there.
Q: Then I do the dishes myself.
M: It’s expectation. We expect certain things and when there are more expectations, there is less peace. When we have more expectations about somebody, we have less satisfaction. Instead, like in Gandhi’s principle, people come to Gandhi’s ashram and put their slippers all over. Gandhi personally went and put them in order. They did it a few times, then they were conscious and they started putting the things in order. Likewise, one person was telling that they went for a course, a teacher training programme or something, the teacher trainer was not on time and he is normally on time. He was 15-20 minutes late. When they went around checking why the person was late, the person was tidying up the beds. Because people were just leaving things in the room in a very untidy way, so the teacher first of all went around the room and made everybody’s bed, clothing, everything and then he came to the class. He didn’t say anything. There was no resentment, nothing. It happened for two days. The second day, they found out what was happening. The third day everybody got up, everybody tidied up their room, they cleaned everything themselves and went back to the class. So, leading by example has a lot of power, rather than preaching, shouting. Mahatma Gandhi used to do that when people came to his ashram, and made a mess, he always cleaned without asking anybody, telling anybody. Then people understood. This is the way it should be done and got ashamed. There is always positivity in doing what you think is the right thing and demonstrating, leading by example. There is a lot of power in it. So don’t be angry.

Q: Often in life we find people who are selfish and self-centred moving ahead, but those who are nice and kind do not.
M: I already answered that question. The time of Kali is gross. This is a very low-frequency time. So the success which we talk about is momentary, sometimes material success. This is the success we are talking about. Do we know how much peace of mind they have? Many people whom you see or feel successful cannot sleep well. They cannot eat well. They cannot eat most of the food. All these issues are there. So don’t look from a terrestrial point of view. See how they are within. If you understand the reality, probably the person who is according to terrestrial terms not so successful, may be very successful inside. Because they will be peaceful inside. They will be happy with what they have. Being satisfied at every moment is success. Don’t think if you have a better car, you are more successful.
There is a recent anecdote about a singer Yesudas. He had a programme in the UAE, and one guy, I don’t remember whether he is a sheik or somebody, was so enchanted with these songs and music, that he went up to the stage and handed over the keys of his Rolls Royce to him. He said, ”Take it.” He was so happy with his music that he gave him the Rolls Royce. Yesudas gave it back to him,” I wouldn’t be able even to change its tyre, if I take it to India. I don’t have the money for the expense of keeping a Rolls Royce.” Sometimes things can be a very big burden. So from an external point of view, “Oh, my god, he got a Rolls Royce!” The second point is that is he able to maintain it. Not all things that shine are the things which are going to give you satisfaction. We must be clear about it. And why the selfish people, because the frequency is suitable for them, not for the lighter beings. That is why I already answered that question. During the Kali the frequency is dense, gross, they are more accusing, complaining, cheating, stealing, all these things are possible now. It is not possible in Sathya yuga or in Treta yuga and it is a little bit possible in Dwapara yuga. But in Kali, everything is possible: destruction, etc. Have you seen what is happening in Iraq and Syria? Children burnt alive, women sold as sex slaves. We are living in the same world right? There are a lot of things going on, very tragic. An earthquake happened in Nepal, so many people died. We don’t even know how many died. So this is all part of the current frequency, the current level of operation. Time is deciding beings here. Time is favourable for dense beings to operate. That is why we see greed, anger, cheating, being judgmental, all sorts of things. And when you say, “Please don’t do that, be kind to people, birds, animals, it’s a small life”, people do not understand. They think you are probably an abnormal person. So that is the operation.

What is a Guru?

An excerpt from Sediba retreat in South Africa in September 2013

Mohanji quote - If you  have taken one life, use it to become GodWhat is a guru?

Q: Please explain the concept of a guru. How can one’s or my, his or her spiritual growth and cleansing depend on someone that is a guru?

In the macro level

A: The primary concept of a guru is that guru is a principle. Guru is a tattwa. Guru means the remover of darkness, somebody who brings the light into understanding, the light of awareness, the light of logic into our ignorant path. One who brings knowledge, awareness and clarity to our life is a guru. In that context guru cannot be just human being. The sun brings light into our Milky Way. Sun brings light to all the planets, so the sun has a role of a guru. You have to consider the sun in the context of the guru principle too. Guru principle runs through every being of this universe. Everybody has a guru aspect in them. But I know this question is about the physical guru who talks. I will come to it later. First of all understand what guru is. Guru is a principle which can operate through any medium, any being or any situation. Guru needn’t even be a walking, talking being. It can even be an understanding which happens in your mind. It can be the tree, or the leaves, or the wind. Certain revelations happen when we see certain things. Like when an apple fell on Newton’s head. He thought about the theory of gravity, right? Some other people also had an apple fall on their head. They only had a bump. (laughter) This is the difference. If it leads to something which is more revealing and awakening, that has to be considered as a guru. In that case, the apple is a guru, right? That triggered a particular process of thought and that created a particular path of understanding, knowledge, science. Guru should be considered in that aspect, the macro level.

In the micro level

In the micro level, the guru that we see in normal life, we call a person a guru if he is knowledgeable, if he is able to help us travel the path of life, if he is able to guide us to higher understanding. But again, there is a fundamental non-understanding here. In today’s world there are various types, shapes and forms of people who teach or convey a message to people. I believe all these people are necessary, because they are helping somebody. All these people are catering to certain people, because not everybody can understand or appreciate one path. Like, if I only speak Latin or Italian, most of you will not understand what I am talking about. I need to speak a language with which I can convey the message. Like that, there are various mouths operating and required in today’s world to convey the right message to people.

The gurus and acharyas

Acharyas are teachers, they have acquired book knowledge, they have learned, externally they have acquired information and they are conveying this information to the world outside. They look like gurus, they also probably have a name of a guru, but understand they are only expounding book knowledge or knowledge which they have acquired over a period of time. This is different This is acquired information. Knowledge has come from the outside into inside, it is churned and it is transferred back. It’s a process. You take in information, churn it, make formats and present it back to society. These are acharyas, teachers.

Now there are gurus who have awakened the knowledge from within. That means knowledge is already available, past, present and future exists simultaneously in absolute time, so they are established in knowledge. When they are established in knowledge, and knowledge is awakened in them, and they are expounding that knowledge, these are gurus. These are the real ones, connected to the source and they tap into the source as per the requirement. This is the fundamental understanding every seeker should have. A guru who is already operating in the highest consciousness, who is operating from the source, can transform a person just by a glance because he is already in the silent mode, established in silence. If I have a torch in my hand, I can show you the light as well. If I am only showing you a picture of the torch and say,“This is how the torch looks,“ you will definitely have an idea of how the torch looks, but you will not have light. This is the difference. This is the fundamental understanding every seeker should have. That means information can be available, if you google or type certain words on the Internet, you will get the information, but what about experience? Experience changes you. Experience makes you. Experience is you. This is the one thing we must understand. You are the experience. If you want to grow spiritually, root in experience, not in words, not in theories, not in understanding. That is a problem with the kundalini experience or enlightenment experience as well. People talk a lot about their own experience and seekers think,“This is how it should be.“ It can never be the same because each one has a different constitution. Each person has a different metabolism, different configuration, so it will be different. This is the reason. I hope it is clear now what an acharya is, and what a guru is. A guru has an awakened knowledge from within, an acharya has an acquired knowledge from the outside. First, acharya does not have much walking space. He can only walk as much as the knowledge he collected and transformed into readable material that can be conveyed. Second, there is no guarantee that acharya has understood the subject well himself. If you have read something, assimilated it, digested it, you might have understood it based on your level of operation, your IQ and your level of understanding from which you are churning. That is why we see distortions in the performance of the scriptures. No guru will ever say,“Go over and kill somebody.“ No guru will ever want violence, but today if people are resorting to violence, what does that mean? It means wrong understanding of the right scriptures. This is all because of acharyas. Acharyas are teachers, they can also interpret the scripture saying,“This is also a way you can look at it.“ Then some people will buy it, some people will “subscribe“ to it. They will say,“No problem, this is also one method of looking at it.“ And they start operating in it. Once they start operating in that line, catastrophies happen and distraction happens. This is the difference between an acharya and a guru. A guru will never do that because he is connected to the source. He will only give you what you need. He will not give you his opinion, he will only give you the truth, because there is no opinion to talk about there. Truth is one and the same truth has been spoken through generations through time by various mouths. There is no way you can speak a different truth today. I can speak a different language today, that is because I live in this time, but I cannot speak a different truth today. Nor will further generations to come speak a different truth from what I am saying. Likewise even Krishna used to say,“Thus spake the masters.“ Lord Krishna was an avatar. An avatar used to say,“As spoken by the masters before me, I am speaking.“ That means he always regarded and had gratitude for the ones who came before him. That is the way you operate when you are absolutely established in absolute time or you are established in knowledge. Then there is no ego attached to it. It is just knowledge as per requirement. Like we breathe air as per the requirement of our body. Our inhalation, exhalation are not as per requirement of the mind. We breathe spontaneously because we have to breathe. That means we have taken as much air as we need. It’s not like greed,“Oh air is there, let me collect it and keep it.“ That doesn’t happen with breathing, that happens at non-understanding level. So book knowledge converted and interpreted can be distorted, distortion is possible.

First of all understand who you are following. If you want to follow a guru, follow a guru who is connected to the source. It helps you. If you follow a guru for understanding’s sake, e.g. you have been at college, universities and schools, and you gathered information which brought you to this level, have gratitude. They are all good. It’s not that they are not good. At the same time, they have limitations. You can cross over the limitation and they can also cross over the limitation, but that’s not our programme today, that’s not our call. This is individualistic.

Why should somebody follow a guru?

This is your choice. You have every right. Why should somebody follow a road sign? The same question. Why do you choose a road sign? Because you don’t know the way, right? If you knew the way, you would not even look at the road sign and the road sign would never be unhappy because of that. It will never say,“I wasted my time standing here.“ The true guru will do the same. He is available. You can choose to follow the guru’s guidance, or also not to follow the guidance. This is perfectly up to you, and no true guru is insecure about it, just like the road sign is not insecure about it. If a guru is insecure thinking,“Nobody is looking at me,“ that means he is at acharya level. He is worried, he is insecure, he has problems, just like if some people keep criticising another person. They are insecure and their insecurity is being expressed. Similarly, if you are a person who is established and you come only with eligibility, you will get anything. That is also there. You can choose the guru, but the guru has to choose you as well. This is both ways. Why should I choose a guru? You have every right not to choose a guru. The guru also has the same right to choose you or not to choose you. Understand this is not a supermarket where I pick up some materials. Actually speaking, knowledge is not the right of a student. It’s the gift of the guru. Why is it a gift of a guru? Because the students do not usually know what they want, but the guru knows how much a student can carry. I am talking about a true guru, not the acharya. Acharya will give you the books, telling you,“Learn all this, you will reach somewhere.“ So true gurus will always know what the disciple needs and will only deliver that. So you can choose a guru, and the guru also has the full right to choose you or not to choose you.

Mohanji quote - If you want to grow spiritually, root in experienceChoosing a path

Q: I come from a very, very protestant family. Now my experience is different. How do I marry the two ideas, the two concepts together?

A: All of us, right from our childhood, as we grow up, are fed with concepts more than with food. E.g. tradition, family, lineage… We say we come from this respected lineage which used to be rulers or landlords before, every family has something, so you should behave in certain ways, you should walk in certain ways, you should talk in certain ways… Right from our childhood we are fed with concepts.
As we progress, through religion, through the schools we attend, through society,even through get-togethers, programmes, the right and wrong is fed into us. That takes away our freedom of choice. Everybody or most people are like that. In many of the western countries, probably the condition is much larger. Like, you have walked the path for twenty, thirty years in one method, or one chosen path for a long time, and suddenly a new idea comes and you become fascinated by it and want to explore it and there is a guilt of leaving what you have already tread and excitement with something which is seemingly uncertain or interesting. Everybody has this conflict.
What happens is that we are also animals in a different way. We chose intelligence over might. Or we can say we chose predictable intelligence over the sixth sense. This is what happened to us. When we were in the forest, our sixth sense was very clear. This predictability also confined us to a certain pattern. This pattern created the comfort zone. Leaving the comfort zone is very difficult. That is why this question arises ’why should I follow a guru’… because these are alien concepts. Some people are following it in another region of the world, but how can that be adapted to a path where you have been brought up in a more or less programmed atmosphere, where you go to church, you go to the mosque, you have certain levels of worship on a methodical basis, sometimes the surrender is transactional, activities are transactional, and prayers are in a particular order. All these things will appear as conflicts in the path to come. At that point in time, the thread to hold onto is awareness,“Am I changing? In which direction?“ Not being a rebel saying,“I will destroy everything so that something can happen in the future.“ That is basically non-understanding as well. That’s ignorance. Because by destroying things, you cannot guarantee change within your life time. However by going through the process and if it is suitable, you can only consume some food which suits your body. If different food is given to you, you will not consume it. Like in certain areas of the world people eat dog, cat, or snake meat, all these things, which many people who are meat eaters will not consume. Why is it so? It doesn’t suit their constitution, or it doesn’t suit their understanding or interest. In the same way, you will accept only something which really suits you. It means awareness is important so that you should know what you are doing.
Why has it come to you? You should ask this question. Why has this particular method of prayer come to me? I’ve been following one path for a long time, but now it has come to me. This is question number one.
Number two,“Now that it has come to me, how is it relevant to me? Is it liberating me or is it binding me? Have I been bound by the path for so long and have I lost interest to explore or to see if I am doing the right thing? I am doing things mechanically, because my grandfather was doing it, my father was doing it, and I am doing it.“ This is the way most spiritual practices happen today – repetition because of lineage or tradition. However, at no point in time are we checking,“Is that relevant to me?“ The moment you sit down and think,“Is some activity relevant to me?“ If it is not relevant, if you have the guts and courage to drop it, at that point in time the shift happens. It’s not being a rebel. It’s being aware that,“I am doing the activity out of compulsion, out of repetition or out of fear, mostly out of fear of heaven and hell, or fear that somebody will not like it. Some of my family members will say that I am not in the right way.“ So we follow out of compulsion, but is that giving you any kind of elevation, any kind of pleasure or any kind of fulfillment? If the answer is no, no, no, it’s time you left it. It might be the best thing, or you might also have the soft leaving, which means you leave for some time, taste it and you go back again. But it is important to evolve.

Make an effort to spread the word of love. That is what you are.

Knowledge is not the right of a student. It’s the gift of the guru. Because the students do not usually know what they want, but the guru knows how much a student can carry.

I always say,“If you have taken one life, use that life to become God. One with God. Then it’s worth it.“ Otherwise we take life times in rotation and achieve nothing. We taste a lot of things which are available on earth at various levels of mind, body, intellect, then we die and then we come back.

Punarapi jananam punarapi maranam
Punarapi janani jathare shayanam

(Again birth, again death, again in the womb of a mother, it keeps on going)
That is exactly the point we are talking about. If you have one life, use that life to be fully aware. ”My job is to experience whatever I wanted to experience, express whatever I wanted to express, and then get out of the place, get out of the game.” If that clarity is there, there is no conflict. Otherwise the social conditioning, the concepts, keep binding you, they keep pressurising you, and they keep making you a slave. I am not against any religion. If you want to experience how to be a slave, you have to be a slave. That is your choice. But in the path of liberation it has no validity. This is the only equation I am saying. In the path of liberation you can never be a slave to anything including habits, including relationships, including dependency, including place, time, objects. Ramana Maharishi used to eat food from the shell of a coconut. Some of the devotees felt it was very bad that the master ate food from the shell of a coconut, so they brought a plate for him. He said,” So you want to teach me attachment to this plate now? With the shell of the coconut, all the shells look the same, this shell or another shell, it doesn’t make a difference, but with a plate you will start owning it, where is my plate?” It might seem very simple, but this is how the mind works. Mind always holds on to small things, but that is important for the mind. Mind will say, “This is my plate. Don’t you dare touch it!” Why you say that is because of ownership. It is part of mind’s job. Even in spirituality we have ownership of our god, guru, we have ownership of all these and it binds you. At the same time if you do not have ownership, if you just do serving, it’s a beautiful scenario. Especially when the guru leaves, why are disciples affected? Ownership of the image. You like the image. You get connected to the image. But not a moment in time does the disciple feel guru is not the image. It’s a principle which is working through this body. He has gone, very good, ha, ha, but this is the point.

An excerpt from Sediba Mountain Retreat in South Africa in September 2013

Transcending the Earth

Mohanji quote - Nobody can own the EarthQ: How to transcend the Earth?

A: Earth is definitely a beautiful location and we must be grateful to the Earth and all the beings of the Earth, because the gratification you are getting from the Earth, you are not getting from elsewhere. That is why we are here today and are walking this Earth. So we must be grateful. Understand that nobody can own the Earth. If you are on Earth, you have to pay the rent, and the rent is service. If you are using this realm, just like you are using this space now, you have to pay the rent. They are not going to allow us to sit here and leave without paying the money. Likewise the Earth will not release you until you settle the bills. And the bills are selfless service. That is why we are talking about various methods of helping people. The more you serve people, the more liberated you become. The Earth will bless you, ”My son, you walked this Earth, I am happy, you have served my people and the other beings and I bless you. You can go.” Then you will not come back. In that mode it’s fine. But through the senses, we become fascinated with the Earth, this is also fine. But what is the use of being earth-bound? Because we are moving in the duality mode. We need awareness to know, ”I am in this place, what is the best I can do? What else can I do?” There are two things. One is do your best, and the other, a constant quest, ”What else can I do?” Both are liberating. If you constantly keep looking in this way, ”Ok, I have done this, what else can I do?” you expand that mode again. Then you finally reach a level where you are actually in perpetual action mode for a purpose, a purpose-bound action, and then, “I am delivering at every point in time. And I am moving on.” Connection with the Earth is also fulfilled, this is a debt to the mother for nurturing us. That is fulfilled and you are liberated. If you want to come back, you will need to take a body and come back to the same Earth. This is what you will do. Those people who fall too much in love with Earth, definitely do come back and work on Earth. Body has a duration. This is your choice. You can definitely come back. Keep working on the same area. This is up to the individual.

Understand from which level the mind operates

Q: Why am I so rebellious in doing things that are good for me, which involve loving myself, eating right, doing work on time, exercising. It seems when I’m not rebelling, I am impatient because I do not grow and change as quickly as I understand. I understand quickly, but I manage slowly to be able to practice or create a healthier habit. Can spirit help me? Is there a technique to improve my ability to take care of myself?
A: Rebellion is in the mind. When you are rebellious it means the mind is portraying that aspect of you. Where is the rebellion coming from? Which aspect of mind? The mind that does not want to work, or the inertia associated with the mind. If you know that this is a consistent pattern, at that time we have to detach from that faculty which creates that pattern, especially the aspect of mind which creates rebellion. Move backwards and watch it, “Ok, you are creating this rebellion, this aversion towards exercising, aversion towards doing the thing at the right time, and I am not that. I am beyond it.“ It is always true that you are beyond it, but at the same time, you are helpless because you are in control of the mind. Mind always creates patterns. Mind loves to have repetition. Mind loves to have patterns. Mind is like that. Mind does not like whatever is not repetitive. That is why we resist anything new. We resist change as well. It is important to know how the mind operates.

It is also important to know from which level the mind operates, where the mind is standing, which platform it is operating from.

Inertia

If the platform is inertia, it is important to know that we must detach ourselves from inertia. Inertia says, ”Ok, it’s fine, you can sleep some more, you can rest some more, you can do it tomorrow…“ These are all signs of overpowering inertia. Inertia is overpowering and it’s creating these kinds of signs. Then it is important to understand, when mind says, ”We will not do it tomorrow, we will do it now.“ That is the best way to counter it.

Action

If you want to beat tamas, inertia, you have to marry rajas, action. Action is the best way to beat tamas. There is no point in meditating. There is no point in doing something else. These are all probably diversions or substitutions. Substitutions do not work here. You can’t substitute one thing. If you are thirsty, you have to drink water. There is no way you can eat food and quench your thirst. You need to have some liquid when liquid is required by the body. Just like that, every aspect has its value. You cannot substitute that. But when you know that, ”I’m not able to move further because of inertia and the mind rooted in inertia is creating such problems, that’s the time to detach and move into action. When mind says, ”tomorrow”, do it now. This is the importance of being in the now. This is very important to know. If you operate in the now all the time, inertia cannot stay. Inertia always takes you backwards and forwards, to the past and the future. This is important to understand. Where are you operating from and why are you operating?
When you do not do something and then you feel agitated, this is also part of inertia. It means you do not want to do something, and then you start blaming yourself. Both are two sides of the same coin, or two aspects of the same thing. They are dimensions of inertia. Inertia is postponing things, then putting guilt into you later on. It is important to understand what is working within. If it is inertia, and if you are clear about it, cut off. And the best way is action. I tell people, go jogging, play tennis, do activity with a physical body, more than you did before, so that the tendency to procrastinate is defeated. At the same time, you try and sit to meditate, mind will love it, because mind will manipulate that and convert it into inertia, mind will say, ok, now you are feeling tired, sleep now. So what happened? A good activity which would have raised you to the level of sattwa, the mild, the clean and the pure, brings you down to the level of ignorance, because for procrastination, you don’t have to do anything. By nature you procrastinate. But to create sattwa, it is the positive action at the time, of being in time, it takes effort. We have to really tune ourselves to achieve that. That is not easy. But procrastination and indulgence are no problem. If you like to drink alcohol you’ll have many friends. But if you sit and meditate, or if you meditate at the same space and time, then people will say, ok, after my drink, I’ll come to you (laughter). This is the way life goes. In most of the situations you can see that happening. In most of our life on a consistent basis, many times we see that happening. It means, good company is hard to come by. That is because good company needs sacrifice. Sacrifice in the sense, what you like to do versus what you have to do. What you like to do versus what is good for you. Maybe the food you eat is not good for you.

Purity and the subtle

If you are operating in the level of sattwa, in purity and the subtle, then you will only consume what is good for you. You will definitely reject what is not good for you. It’s not what you like to eat. That is why we go to fast foods, things which make you a slave of it. It makes you repeat it. You consume it once, again when you are hungry, you suddenly remember the fast food joint. Not ever do we consider, ”Is this actually what I want?” You never consider what your body wants. Not because you have deficiency. This is how mind operates. Mind’s pattern is like that. It catches on to something which you like to do, or it creates things that it likes, and that’s usually related to senses. Something which is very tasty, may not be the right food, and the right food may not be tasty either. Some of the best medicines are very bitter, but that is what cures you.

Whatever you do, do it with conviction

Make an effort to spread the word of love. That is what you are.

Make an effort to spread the word of love. That is what you are.

I clear doubts, but ask yourself,“Have the concepts been cleared?“ That is more important than doubts. Mind poses doubts. Mind will continue to pose doubts, but when the concepts are cleared, the root is cleared. I would rather be happy to clear the concepts. I would rather be happy if you attain the state of non-conformity, and you are flowing like a river so that you are not bound by anything, you are free, you have full freedom, you are liberated, no concepts are binding you, you are not bound by frames, you are not creating further frames and also you are existing in truth. That is what should be achieved with all this exercise. This is what is meant. I’ll be glad to clear doubts, because doubts also block progress. But doubts are minor compared to concepts. Concepts are the more powerful barriers in the path of spiritual evolution, any evolution, on any level, concepts are the binding factor. They never allow you to see the truth. They give you distorted truth and mind buys it, mind subscribes to it saying,“This could be the truth.“ This is also why some fears do not leave. Some fears for which the mind says,“This is dangerous.“ It makes us invalid, our motion is limited. That is the thing.

The key point is whatever you do, do it with conviction. That gives you intensity. I tell people, if you live only one day, live that day with intensity. It is not intensity out of the mind. It is the intensity of the purpose. If you look at Jesus’s life, every moment was intense. Because the purpose was so overwhelming and so real, it made your every moment intense. And that intensity is beautiful. Because if you are living only ten years more, those ten years will be worth it. Or a few days more, it will still be worth it, because a whole life wasted over concepts, over theories, over perceptions and a few days lived with intensity of purpose, it is a huge difference. Life becomes worthwhile. That is the difference between living and existing. We are existing most of the time, not living. ’Living’ means you have to live with intensity. And that intensity should not be created. It should happen based on purpose. Mind is such a culprit that it hides and attacks. There are certain animals which hide in the bush and attack. Mind is like that. It catches you at the time when you least expect it.

My wish is that you are able to see reality and the truth beyond the mind. And make an effort to spread the word of love. That is what you are.

If you are able to spread the word of love, saying that,“I am love, you are love as well. I am god, you are god as well.“ The simple truth of spirituality and without any binding. Not forcing,“You should meditate ten times a week!“ Not so. This is all immaterial. If you like to meditate, meditate. If you don’t like to meditate, still be clear and pure within. That is the constant exercise. To be pure within, you need to be like a watchman guarding the gate. You need to control the inputs in thought, word, action. You need to control the inputs through the intellect, mind and body so that at every level we maintain our purity and purification. Nothing will affect you any more. You are pure and clean while living and you will be pure all the time.
