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 in 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

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 blossoms 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, Lakshman, 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
