Public Program. Caxton Hall, London (UK), 20 July 1981.
There are some guests from Hong Kong now let them sit down.
Sahaja Yoga is such a fantastic thing that, when people get their realisation, they can’t even believe that they have got it, first of all.
The other day I had a minister from one of the countries, and his wife, and he’s suffering from some mental trouble. And when we raised his Kundalini he started feeling a tremendous cool breeze in the hand and cool breeze coming out of his head. He just couldn’t believe his eyes! He couldn’t believe it. He said, “What’s all this?” I said, “How are you feeling?” He said, “I am so relaxed that I can’t think of anything! Just I can’t think. I have never been like this. This is a new thing that has happened to me!”
Now we have to understand also, logically, certain things about Sahaja Yog – this I am explaining for people, those who will be now going out, and speaking about Sahaja Yoga to other people – and how to deal with people who are intellectuals. It’s important to understand what are the hurdles they have, by which they do not want to receive the message of Sahaja Yoga and what are the barriers that really create a problem for them before and after.
Now we’ll deal with people who are Western people, we can say. They can be also Indians, they can be Asians, they can be anybody – but who are more of a Western mind than of the Eastern mind. So the first thing that we’ll confront is that you’ll have a mixture of people who will come to you. There’ll be people who will be seekers, ardent seekers, and there will be people who have been hurt and mesmerised by some ‘gurus’ or something, some sort of a spiritualist and this and that. We will get fanatics also, who might be seekers themselves. And there could be some people who could be absolutely fake also, because it’s a fashion these days. In a party, [if] you go: I mean, I live with people who are supposed to be very elite, and mix up with them, and whenever they talk I find they talk of seeking. It’s surprising! They’ll be taking wines and alcohols, this and that, and [when] it comes to politics then they will say, “Oh, but there has to be some sort of a self-realisation about it!” Or they will say, “We have to understand it rather deeply from a divine point of view.” Or some sort of a thing they will hint at.
So they are thinking of some breakthrough that has to take place. I mean, it is coming to them, maybe, through their unconscious, maybe through their logic. They are arriving at a conclusion that something has to happen and we are still confused because we haven’t found the Absolute.
But despite that, among them I find, as it is the topic of the day, sort of a thing among people, luckily it is the topic. I mean, even if they talk of economics it comes to that. Then, among them, how many of them are really the seekers or they are just doing it because everybody is talking of fashions and things. Like, I have never been to a racecourse, for example, and then everybody is talking about racecourse, so you feel so out of place and backward. You look so backward in that society so you just go and read something about it and discuss with others and say, “Oh alright, this I know. I know one jockey. I know this, that,” just to impress others. That, also, kind of people are existing.
Of course, these people live day to day. They are not going to come to Sahaja Yoga so easily. They live on day to day basis. “Today we had this party, went to that party, came out and enjoyed this, met this gentleman.” “I know this man, that man…” all sorts of things goes on. And I think they finish their lives in this day to day basis. Wages that they get out of life, they finish .They don’t think of the beyond. They don’t think that there’s something else, more, to their lives and that thinking is not there but, just as a fashion, they may talk about these things.
Of course among them there are seekers, no doubt. [Among] them also there are seekers. But seekers are mostly not very successful people, because they do not find success so alluring, so tempting, so magnetic. To them it’s quite vivid and quite clear-cut that those who are supposed to be very successful – in life, in any field, say in money matters or say in politics or anywhere – they find that they are rather eccentric; if not eccentric, [that] they are a bit dominating. Or sometimes they find that they are very ambitious and that they little bit try to put down others by their eminence or whatever success they have got.
So all these things come into the mind of a seeker who doesn’t try much for his material success or doesn’t talk much for his, also, intellectual success. He may read a lot just to find out what is the Truth. That’s a different sort of a seeking. That’s not material seeking. But that’s what so many Sahaja yogis who have been here have done also, that they have read too much. So you confront such people, a mixture of such people together. But you have to be prepared for every type. Because God has made this World with very [great] care. But lots of variations, permutations and combinations are there. As I told you last time, there are three permutations and combinations.
The first is the power of desire which is on the left-hand side. Second is the power of action or willpower you can say, which is on the right-hand side. And the central one is the evolutionary one, third one. So we have these powers and these three create three moods. The first one is called as Tamoguna, right one is Rajoguna and the middle one as the Satvoguna. So the combinations and permutations of these three gunas create different human beings and accordingly their styles are and their seekings are, and accordingly they fall a trap to people who try to seduce them.
Now the people on the left-hand side are more addicted to habits.
Like, if they take to alcohol, they’ll become alcoholics. If they take to smoking, they’ll become chimneys, sort of thing, and they go to the extremes of the left. And their willpower, which is a right side [power], the will, starts going down very much and they cannot overpower their desires, these habits. The habits become desires, you see.
Then, to add to that also, when they see that, by doing action, people have brought forth wars – this is super-intellectual way of looking at life, you see – that, “What have we done? We have created atom bomb by thinking. We have killed so many people. We have done this, we have done that. All wrong things we have done by taking action. So it’s better to go into inaction, absolutely inaction.” So when they think of these things and why this materialistic world and all this creation and all that we have done – because of that we have aggressed other countries – so better go into inaction.
Such people become prone to the left-hand side more then they take to drugs and things. And also alcohol goes hand in hand with too much use of willpower because if you use too much of willpower you get so frightened of your ego and your action, that you want to relax on to the left-hand side . Now the habit formation takes place, maybe from very childhood, and then the willpower is diminishing gradually when that habit becomes sort of a part and parcel of your being.
Like, you see, in the Western modern society, to flirt is a habit. Flirting is definitely a habit. It’s not an innate need of a person, it is just a habit that is formed. And in a society when it is accepted that, “Oh, it’s nice to impress men and nice to impress women,” it becomes a pastime for many people and, even when they are grown up, they cannot get rid of it, even if they are old, up to the grave time, they go about with it. They just can’t get out of it because it becomes such a habit and obsession and the society also supports it. So the whole thing starts becoming a habit and you become so weak with it that you just cannot do it with your willpower even if you try, you justify it, “Oh, I enjoy it!”
Like a lady who had cancer. I was treating her and I said, “You may have to give up your alcohol.” She said, “But I like my sherry, at least.” I said, “Now what to do?” She likes means everything is justified. “I enjoy my whisky,” she said. So I said, “Now what am I to do?” I mean, she’ll have to enjoy her cancer also!
But we enjoy the thing that brings you disease, but not the disease. And if we understand it clearly that these habits give us problems which are most agonising, most troublesome, they give you such bad effects in later lives that you rather have no habits and enjoy your life than to have these so-called enjoyable habits.
Now people might say, “What happens with flirting?” You might say. It’s a very simple question, you see. You’ll be surprised – those people who flirt too much lose their memory very fast. Their memory will be lost. Because your attention is moving all the time, your eyes are moving, you know the Swadishthana Chakra works so much. Your memory will be very weak. Apart from that, your attention will be very weak, too, your concentration will be very weak and you will age very fast because when you are using your eyes for a habit…your eyes for the habit, imagine! I mean, nobody could think of that but Christ must have seen it. That’s why He said, “Thou shall not have adulterous eyes.” He must have seen that part.
So when you start using your eyes, you see, for something that is desire, to that extent, I mean, I don’t know if any desire is fulfilled or not, because I don’t know what it gives you, or gives anyone. It’s not easy to understand. But whatever it is, if it is used for a purpose which is not going to fail. For example, supposing I use this glass for something like making a light out of it or something, it will break. It is not supposed to do that.
So if you start using something for a purpose for which it is not meant, your attention can become very weak because your eyes are meant to see. And after your realisation, your eyes are to witness. They give you the witness state. After realisation, with your eyes you just witness, the complete witnessing. Like now I witness you people. Just I am witnessing you, nothing [else]. I don’t want anything from you, only I am witnessing as you are, all of you. And what I am witnessing is the beauty that you have, is what you are created as, I am just seeing that. And the complete joy that is you, which the Creator had in creating you, is absolutely one with me. I’m just witnessing that, seeing you. Nothing more or nothing less.
Now when, supposing, I use My eyes for looking at a person with the idea of possessing it, possessing a person, which I cannot. I cannot possess anything, you know. I mean for all, for all rational people must understand you cannot possess anything. Now I want to possess a person, and you look at a person with the idea of possessing. By looking at a person I don’t know how you can possess when even binding a person, you cannot possess – when you die you have to leave everyone here.
So this kind of a game when it goes on, your attention becomes very, very low. And I have seen people have such horrible memories that one person rang me up, talked to me for half an hour and asked me, “What should I do for the memory?” So I said, “Alright, you put your right side on the left-hand side, try to control it, do this and do that.” He lost his memory not because of that but because of hatha yoga that he did (laughing). I mean there are so many ways by which you can really lose your memory but one of them is definitely this. So I told him, “You put your right to the left all the time and try to balance it.” When we put right to the left what we do? We put our willpower on our habits. So again he rang me up. So I asked – somebody was there – I said now, “Please, I talked to him for half an hour and I am really tired now, can you ask him what is it, what does he want.” So he said, “No I, because I forgot everything whatever Mataji told me.” I said, “Again half an hour more?” (laughing) I said, “Next time you put a tape recorder when I talk to you, will be a better idea.” So this is what happens.
And at a very early age also people can start. One of the reasons I am saying. It doesn’t mean that everybody who loses memory, loses because of this. But one of the most important things is that, to keep yourself normal, try to avoid any habits that are forming, by denying something – it’s the best way. There is a very good poet, very well known poet in India who has written a nice couplet which I liked. He says that, “Whatever this heart wants to see, you better not see.” You see, better deny it. Because if it does again and again that means there is some sort of a spirit or some sort of a nonsense that is pulling you out.
So, any habit, any habit or any addiction, say you are addicted to anything. Supposing you are addicted, say, to a piece of jewellery you have – never wear it. Still you feel like wearing it too much – donate it, give it to somebody. Because there is nothing so important than your Self. But you will be surprised when you start denying it, playing with your mind, playing with your desires, whatever you want to have, you say, “Alright, we’ll have it,” and just don’t have it. For example you are going to a restaurant. You want to eat something. I don’t know what you people like. But say you want to eat something special, anything, I don’t know the names so much, there you go and you just end up with a bread, finished! You have to play with yourself after realisation. And it breaks then the link of that addiction that is one of the very subtle conditions we have within ourselves.
So today, as I am talking to you about the seekers who come to you, they have habits. They have habits. Say, we had six people who were drug addicts. I used to call them ‘druggists and chemists’, you see. First they could not even see me, they said they just see light coming out of me because their Agnya was spoiled so they couldn’t see anything. And all sorts of things happened with them. Then some of them felt that their soul is coming out, and the body is left there, they are seeing me from there. And all sorts of things, all experiences they have had with all kinds of drugs they had taken. They had taken the left-sided, the right-sided – oh, everything they had tried, you see. Now to talk about drug was really blasphemous! I just couldn’t talk to them in the beginning. If I had said anything they would have really shut me out.
So the person who has to tell to them should never directly come on that point that, “Don’t take drugs!” That’s one thing one has to remember that, when such people approach you, you should never start talking against that. I mean you’ll be boxed for nothing at all and all Sahaja Yoga will go down. So for a druggist, supposing he comes to you, what should we do? What should we do to help? So we should start talking like this, that, “I was also a druggist,” even if you are not, you may say that – there is no harm in telling them – because if you do that way you smooth the way. There is no harm in telling little lies just to bring them up to the truth, you see. You have to stoop down, is to say that, “I was a druggist.” Or you can say, “My father was a druggist,” or somebody nearest to you, whom you know, so that they do not get angry with you, you see. Because they are seekers, the trouble is, they are seekers. These habits have come to them because they were seeking and they went deep down into that seeking. In that seeking they took to drugs and that’s how they have become drug addicts. So now they are not normal people and if you just talk to them in a normal way, as you would talk to a normal person, you can never save them. Now you are here out to save them. So the best thing is to talk to them in such a manner, that they try to understand you. First you identify yourself with them, you stoop down to their style of life, and then talk to them. That’s a very good way of really bringing them nearer you and a very compassionate way of approaching. Or you can say a Mother has to give the castor oil then she gives it in a chocolate. So approach that way. You’ll be amazed, you can overcome their habits. Because Kundalini when She rises, She herself corrects them. They start feeling terrible pain and left side and then they feel completely their left side, no vibrations coming out and all sorts of things they feel. And they start understanding it also, and Kundalini herself goes and clears them out, makes them happy, so that they do not take to these things. Because a person when he’s bored, when he has more time to think about other things, he takes to these things. So there is no time because you become timeless, you go beyond time with realisation.
That’s how you can overcome the left side. Also you can raise your right side and put it to the left side. By raising the right side is, you are raising your willpower and give it to them. But if you tell somebody, who is a drunkard, “You must have your willpower. You must have your willpower.” He said, “Yes, yes, I promise, I promise, I promise.” Next day he comes there. “Eaaah”, “How are you?” then again finished! All promises are broken in five minutes as soon as he sees a bottle. That means all these promises are not supported by his willpower. So no use taking promises from him. Instead of that, try to raise his right side. If you raise his right side and put it to the left side, so the willpower takes over and can help that person to overpower his desire. Because he is a seeker and he deserves all that attention, all that care, all that minute method of helping him out, even if he does not get realisation.
You know so many people who have been alcoholics have been completely cured by Sahaja Yoga. So for all such people you have to have patience and no anger for them at all because they themselves are in a pitiable state. Imagine of a person, who is alcoholic on the street. Just think of such a person who is just on the street thrown by all his people outside. With these people, if you try to be harsh with them, they’ll never give up. But do not sympathise with them that, “Whatever you are doing, alright, alright, go ahead with it.” But in your own Sahaja Yoga method, if you can raise the right to the left, the superego goes down and the ego comes up. When it comes to the centre, raise the Kundalini, and the Kundalini will come up and I am sure he can overcome that.
But for this you have to have patience, you have to do it again and again. Now this we have been confronting many a times. But the whole approach should be of tremendous patience, as I said, of tremendous concern about them. These people have gone to that extreme also because nobody has any concern. After a certain limit, people just give them up. That’s how they are lost.
Now the people who are from lunatic asylum, say: for example we get people directly from lunatic asylum, certified mad. Imagine! To our programs we get. And what do we do with these mad people? We can get angry and ask them to get out, but they are seekers. This is your duty to see that they get realisation. It’s very important that they should get realisation, they should not be lost. It’s very simple to cure them, is to put their willpower over their desires or over their left side. It’s the left side drag that has taken them to this lunatic state.
Maybe a person who is emotionally very disturbed from childhood, he has a left side problem. Like he had no mother, or the mother was very severe or a step-mother. And all the left side problems as you understand are there. Or he has had a very bad time with his wife. Or he had an emotional problems, he suffered a lot. All such people you see, sort of, resign in life and they become that kind and they become mad. When they cannot bear it more, they become mad, because it’s an escape, it’s an arrangement made by nature itself, so that you do not face it. When you are mad, you don’t know what’s happening, you are not aware of it. Imagine to be mad and to be aware, what a problem it will be. That’s why nature does for them. And our only duty is to raise their right side and put it to the left side and raise their Kundalini, which gives them the realisation by which the vital energy start flowing into him and he can feel alright. This is a very, very important thing which can be done.
Now a person who is more ego oriented – we should find out what sort we are – you can help such people much more than a person who himself is a left-handed, because two crying babies will sit down and cry. But an ego-oriented person has a system built in within himself that he dominates. So he has to learn how to put his right [side] down and his left up. So the left side should be raised of a person who is ego-oriented.
Now let us see the ego-oriented person, what happens to an ego-oriented man. Ego-oriented man develops this habit, supposing from the childhood he is intelligent, he’s sharp, born like that. Then the people put them up, “You have to run the race. You have to run the race. You have to compete in the race. Stand up, stand first, stand first. You must out-beat that. You must out-beat that.” All this competitive life starts. Then he gets into that mad rat race, as you call it. Then he becomes successful, so-called successful. Because of his action also ego develops. Action itself gives a by-product that, “I have done this. I have done this. I have decorated this. I have built this Caxton Hall.” All sorts of things can come into his head.
Once it starts building up, “I, I , I , I,” this ‘I’ becomes a big balloon on the head and it covers the whole head. I don’t mind if it covers only the head part of it. But it also covers the heart. And it makes a person absolutely, can make, absolutely emotionless, the example is Hitler. Absolutely emotionless. There’s no feeling left in such a person, if he goes too far with it. Then he can kill, he can say…he can live by hurting others all the time. Such people all the time hurt. They cannot enjoy other people. They cannot be fond of them. They cannot love, in short.
This ego business makes you extremely dry. And everything becomes either money, power, this, that, I mean it’s so dry, everything is dry, you see. “I’ll marry a girl who is a Princess,” supposing somebody says, then you know that ego orientation is there. With this kind of ego orientation, we have had all kinds of wars and all kinds of problems. And ego is added up in a society which is very competitive. I mean there is competition about how you look, how you appear. There are advertisements that, if you smoke a cigar, you see, then you can impress others. Imagine! Madness! I don’t know if you smoke a cigar how it impresses. But this is all built in, you know, the whole society has put this into your heads that if you have a cigar in the mouth, you are going in a Mercedes car or you are going in a big this thing, Rolls Royce, then there is prestige. But rationally, let’s see, logically, supposing somebody has a Rolls Royce. What does it matter? He is not going to give us. Why should we be impressed? If he is going to give us then naturally we’ll be impressed, alright. But nobody shares anything, you see. They try to impress us by what, for what. Why should we be impressed? After all we are not going to get anything out of it. I mean, he is nicely going Rolls Royce, you are walking down, so why should we feel impressed by it? I just don’t understand. But an ego-oriented person always gets impressed by such things. Because they have that slight ego in them and sort of, they see themselves sitting in the same place or whatever it is. I don’t know how it works out. I have not experienced that kind of a thing. But it impresses people.
Like I remember once, you see, we had a governor in a place where we were living, when I was a small child, you see. So we were going to see the governor because he was a great friend of my father and all that and he always used to walk across and they used to go for a walk. Otherwise also I know him very well. But some people said to my father, some friends of mine, “We want to see the Governor”. He said, “Alright.” He said, “We want to invite him,” “So alright,” he said, “we’ll take them.” My father was describing, you know my father was a great realised soul and he described them, he said, “They were so self-conscious that I couldn’t help laughing, you see. They were young people and they were so self-conscious. They were going to the Governor. All the time they were putting their ties alright, their coats alright and all the time they were walking like something. They were never like that, you see.” And he said, “I was, I didn’t know what to do and I was just feeling that I should tell them that there is nothing, it is to be very much relaxed.” And all of them actually started stammering before and they were such hooligans, I tell you, normally, and it was surprising that they just, for nothing at all, and he was such a simple man. This Governor was such a simple man and they all started stammering and shaking and all sorts of things happened.
So my father came and described it to me and we both laughed a lot. And he said, “I don’t know what made them think about because he was in a simple dress, he was meet…he met them very informally and he wanted to be friendly but they were so nervous that he didn’t know what to do with them. Except that they were conscious that they were meeting such and such person, there was nothing to remind them of that. So it happens if you are ego-oriented, if you see somebody who is ego-oriented, you get impressed – is a character.
As the person who is superego oriented [when] he meets another superego, they just combine and they cry together, “Oh, the world is miserable. And we are the two most miserable people crucified by this world,” you see. And the others, they get impressed by each other, you see. This one will praise that and that one will like these people, because he can impress, you see. And there is some mutual admiration society there, they start a mutual admiration society. And that’s how the ego starts bloating more and more and more and more. These are all the thing’s attributes which are extremely artificial, I tell you, they are all man created. Human beings created, so artificial just like plastic we can say.
A dog, if he wins a race, he doesn’t walk with a special snooty nose, does he? If he wins the race, he is not even aware why he is made such ado. He just walks like a simple doggy as he is. If he sees another dog, he’ll bark at the dog (laughter). He doesn’t have all this special etiquette at that time that, “I have won the race. I am 1st class 1st,” or something. He doesn’t feel [like that]. It’s very unnatural but we have made it, because you see, it has come to us because of these three permutations and combinations within us which makes us like that.
But the people who are in the centre are not so much impressed also by these things, not to that extent. Neither they are very much impressed by this, nor they are, they are little indifferent type. Neither they go into people who are crying too much. They just don’t understand what is there so much to cry for a small thing like that. Like a gentleman was transferred once. And I went to his house – very unlucky – that day. I mean, I didn’t know how I went there, for I didn’t know that he was transferred, and his wife was telling me about the transfer, as if her hundred relations must have died, the way she was crying about her transfer! I got such a fright! And by that time, I was much younger to her at that time, but by that time my husband and I must have had at least fourteen transfers, and they had, at the end of their life, one transfer and they were so much crying! I was amazed at that woman! That, what is there? Changing your house? I mean you meet somebody before changing the house, you’ll die, they’ll bore you stiff about the changing of the house. You’ll feel like changing yourself completely the way they will talk about it. Because, you see, little things, they make such an ado and a drama out of it and you feel, “Oh God! What is it?” And what do you find out? Nothing.
These people are very fussy, they show off. It’s very embarrassing to take them to any doctor also. If you take them to a doctor, be careful, keep out! Because they can do anything I mean. I had a very funny, embarrassing experience. I took once, one of my relations to a doctor. And she was this type. And he was just taking her blood pressure, you see, and she started screaming at the top of her voice, you know, so much that I didn’t know, I told her that it doesn’t pain, I know its. “Oh, you don’t know what’s happening to me!” she was screaming at the top [of her voice], with fear you know, they live with fear all the time. The slightest thing upsets them.
So both the things are unnatural. There are many people nowadays are talking of insecurities, which is very common with the psychologists coming in with their new vocabularies and new ideas that they are putting on us. As it is we are unnatural. Now with these people coming on us, I don’t know what we’re going to become! Like she should have this security, she should have that security, she should have mental security. That’s why she does it. For example, I asked why people, women, are not looking after their chastity – that’s very important. That is the security of a woman. Why the men are not looking after their virtues? Because that is the security of man. I mean that’s the natural security you have. “Oh, maybe she has a mental insecurity, so she is going into unchaste life,” I mean, who told you that? What is the mental insecurity? You have got financial security. Even poor people, who are morally advanced, they would not give up their chastity for anything. Never! At any cost. They’ll kill themselves but never give up their, they’ll never give up their virtues at any cost. They may be poor. And this is what happens to us. That the ideas come to us, we start compromising and having new values and new things. The innate and absolute values will remain the same, remain the same. And we have to achieve that and attain to that. We have to re-establish ourselves to that.
After coming to Sahaja Yoga, people tell me, “Mother, if you want money we’ll give you. Take two thousands pounds from us.” Many Indians told me that, “But we have no time, we are busy working,” you see. Alright, they have no time. They’ll give me two thousand pounds. What will I do with two thousand pounds? What am I to do? You go to another class of people, they’ll say, “See, we can join Sahaja Yoga alright, but we cannot give up women, we cannot give up drinking. We cannot give up anything. If you want to have us in Sahaja Yoga, then we are willing to join.” What do I do with them? It’s very common. You have to transform. It’s a transmutation that has to take place. Sahaja Yoga is not for sale, nor for having people just come along, come along, come along, come along, to have a big grand people here, all drunkards and all addicts and this and that? We have to create beautiful people, something so special that who can enter into the Kingdom of God. There’s no compromise with God! There is no compromise with Divine! You cannot compromise! How can I say that you can do this? You cannot compromise!
At the most, He forgives us. Because we have been ignorant, we have been innocent, we did not know that, this was sinful, we did something, He forgives us. He forgives our sins, alright. Christ had died for us. When He is awakened, he sucks our sins. But we go on with it, we want to continue with it, despite the fact God has given us strength now. His Spirit is emitting through us. Despite the fact we are realised souls, we are giving realisation to others. How can we continue? We have to fight it! Like William Blake has said that, “You have to do this and you have to do that.” I mean, he must have thought of such people, but he does not know how much people have gone down either to the left or to the right.
So this is what Sahaja Yoga is and that’s why to come to Sahaja Yoga is a simple thing, to get realisation is even simpler – because Mother loves you very much – but to maintain it and to progress in it is rather difficult because I am not asking you to go to Himalayas after realisation, settle down there, don’t meet anybody, don’t talk to anyone. You have to live in this world with all its defects and with all its problems and to pull it out, out of its satanic forces, out of its doom. You are not to run away from it.
So you have to equip yourself with that wisdom, with that courage. Without courage, you cannot do Sahaja Yoga. Those who have no courage, cannot do Sahaja Yoga – it’s a waste of time, sometimes I feel. It’s a very big flaw with me that I really want to give realisation to everyone and they falter after some time.
So many people have been helped in Sahaja Yoga. It is for your help. First you are enlightened, a light is created. But light is not created to put under the table. You have to show light to others. A day will come when you will be the lighthouses, saving ships after ships and loads and loads of people. That should happen to you. Why should it not? Because innately you are that beautiful store of energy, innately you are that great creation of God which is above all the creations. So it should happen to all of us. And this is the hope I have. And I hope I will have this hope all through and you are not going to fail me in this.
The Nature is working it out, your Kundalini is working it out but you have to also work it out. Have patience with yourself. Work it out. Put yourself in proper places. Adorn your seats, we can say, or as they say, the throne of your Spirit. Adorn it. And that would definitely help you so that you can help the Divine and fulfil whatever is required of you.
May God bless you.
Have you got that poem of William Blake? I think we all should remember it by heart. Have you got, anyone of you? Anyone who knows by heart, can recite it. Have you got Gavin? Come here. They know by heart? Alright, let’s do that. But all of you should know. Come along.
(Yogis sing ‘Jerusalem’ by William Blake)
And this we have to do in that time, time is very short. Now put your hands towards me and close your eyes.
So, today I have said three words, if you remember, is patience, or you can say compassion. That I said that you must have patience with yourself and patience with others. Then the courage. Courage is very important, without courage, you cannot do Sahaja Yoga. And the third is wisdom, which gives you discrimination, discreet behaviour. These three things. You have to ask for these three things from the Divine so that you are helped.
Put your both the hands straight towards me, straight like this, just like this. And loose, little loose, no pressure. Put both the feet like this. That’s good.
Yes, and open the windows that side. It’s alright. Good.
Now those who have come for the first time, you have to see if you feel any cool breeze in the hand. Just see, if you are feeling any cool breeze in the hand. Now you cannot think about it. You cannot make it come. It has to work out. So if you start feeling any cool breeze in the hand, just watch. It is a happening. It’s an actualisation of your baptism. You cannot just say it is so, it has to work out. It will suddenly shoot off.
First, you will feel there is no thought in the mind. She’s got it. Give her into bandhan. Can you just see this.
Sahaja yogis who are sitting next to behind a new person, put your hands and see if they are, there’s vibrations or not. All of you should take a bandhan, will help, first of all. All of you should religiously take a bandhan.
