Sister Jayanti – 15th May 2022 – GCH: Keep the Flame of Experience Burning and Become the Embodiment

17 May 2022

Om Shanti Good morning

 

‘How Wonderful is our Baba’ was the summary of the song.  This is a fact.  Today’s Murli again made me appreciate how Baba helps us in so many ways.  The most important of which is to help us know ourselves.  I used to think ’identity crises’ was something connected with youth.  Then as the world changed in very dramatic ways I realised that many who were expected to be in jobs vocationally had to start  having to have career changes.  Is identity based on career?  Also I noticed with bharatwassis families living here, children reacted to customs and systems of their family and would say to their parents, if challenged, ‘why did you bring us up here and give us a british education’.  Many challenges come up with identity and also purpose, comes up in lokik life all the time.  Who am I and what is my purpose being here?  Why am I doing all this and what is behind it all.

 

Today’s Murli reminds us of identity and purpose in a very simple way.  I remember when I first started to teach in Agra, the teacher gave me the formula to remember 5 things.  Just imagine philosophers trying to find God for many lives and here is this teacher saying just 5 things is ok.  The name, form, qualities, abode and the task.  That’s it and all we have to explain.  Baba has reminded us today - as is the Father so is the children.  Just come back to these five things about Baba and the self and then it is all straightforward and clear.

 

When Baba says ‘have powerful thoughts, not waste thoughts’, what does that mean?  Today Baba has said powerful thoughts are what relates to these 5 aspects…about God and the self.  Then it is clear and no need for questions.  In Hindi Baba has often used the expression, especially on 18th January Murlis, ’smriti’ – awareness, and ‘smirti’- power.  As is your awareness so is the stage.  If awareness is based on weak thoughts what will the stage be like but if our awareness is based on powerful thoughts then the stage will be powerful.  So to check the quality of our thinking.  This is the essence of gyan and the big difference between gyani (those on the path of enlightenment),  and agyani souls. 

 

Let me share these 5 things Baba has been talking about:

 

Name:  The attention will be instantly drawn when we hear our name, so the connection with that is very very deep. Even in our dreams how do we identify ourselves, with our name. Yet Baba has given us a name that is applicable to everyone:  Brahma Kumars and kumaris and this carries so much power:  It carries the awareness and identity of a new spiritual birth. It carries  my relationship with God and Brahma Baba.  Just the name itself is extremely powerful.  This also means we are individuals and free.  A new spiritual birth not based on lokik connections, or bondages.

 

Form:  It is not so easy to keep thinking I am a dot, a point.  Baba says the goal of Brahmin life is to be like the father.  Today he is saying Brahma Baba became the angel...can we keep also our angel form in front of us.  Practise this for even 5 mins in a day then there is a total turnaround in the way we think.  Baba sees us not just an effort maker or a warrior battling with situations and the self, but as an angel.  This is our form.

 

Land:  Which is your land?  Baba reminds us in the Murlis ‘you do not belong to kaliyug’. Our spiritual birth means  we have two homes.  The Home up there and the home in Satyug, in the land of happiness.  If I forget this then the pricks of thorns of the land of Sorrow keep getting to me from here and there and from places or people I thought who would support….something will always be pricking me.  If I am a sensitive flower, it will take away my strength.  Can an angel get hurt?  Can God’s child get hurt?  All of this belongs down here to the Land of Sorrow and I belong to my Father’s Home and the new home, world, the Land of Happiness.  Can I protect myself as a yogi?  As a brahmin, Baba says our life is one of joy and pleasure all the time.  But if I accept the thorns, I will keep feeling pain, and ‘hurt people hurt others’. That is a reality.   We have to find a way, not by running away somewhere, but by changing my attitude and awareness.  If someone does try to hurt me, can I see them as an instrument to help me see where I am at and they are helping me on my journey to perfection.  If they are not around it would be someone else and so I realise I have to change my thinking, and go up above and be able to go to my Home, the Land of Peace and Purity where I can find total rest and comfort. Then I can also see Satyug just ahead.

 

Baba mentions a war in this Murli.  It was spoken in 1991 (Gulf war)  yet it is very much for today, where there is a war going on out there.  Yet Baba says for us children it is a life of pleasure and joy as BK’s the children of Prajapita.  The stage that happens when I can keep myself beyond hurt and sorrow with positive things.  If something has happened how long can I keep holding the burden?  From childhood we record deeply the experiences of sorrow.  It is embedded within us and gone deep, not like the experiences of happiness which haven’t left a mark.  Am I still carrying the scars of infancy and am I going to carry them to the end of my Brahmin life? What would be my future then?  How can I serve as an angel, with wounds and scars?  We need to find a way to heal the soul with God’s love and change our thinking and not allow anymore thorns to prick and accumulate more sorrow.  This is a task Brahmins all need to be engaged in.  Otherwise that pain will not allow me to do what I need to do now.

 

Virtues and Qualities:  The same as my Father, Kalyankari, the Benefactor.  Connected to the qualities of God: love, joy, mercy, truth.  It is all there for the children to draw and benefit from.  Does God need peace for Himself? No it is His children.  He is out of the Cycle, up above.  He is in reserve as the Ocean of Peace and billions can draw from Him and He is not depleted.  It can all be summed up in the one word, Benefactor.  In what ways is benevolence and benefit guiding my life.  Can we stay in benefit and be benefactors. Look and see, why am I here and what is the benefit of what is going on.  When I practise all that Baba is talking about and start to experience all of these things, and keep the flame of that experience burning, Baba says you will become the embodiment.  Today  Baba has told us to experience whatever Baba is telling us and through this we become the embodiments of this.  It is simple and yet we forget it and the mind goes here and there and we lose awareness and power.

 

It is important to realise that one weak thought will open a hole in which our power will begin to drain. We have to be very careful.   Dadi would say that it is not hard work, but just a matter of attention.  When people say Brahmin life is a hard life.  Yet it is not.  We just have to stay alert and awake and that is it.

 

Task:  If I think about world renewal, it is transformation from hell into heaven, Kaliyug into Satyug….it is overwhelming.  It is huge.  Today Baba again makes it simple.  Our task as God’s child is to simply share vibrations of peace.  Whatever else is going on, my task is to be the embodiment of peace and radiate peace.  Peace is important as it is the doorway to all the other treasures which the soul holds in itself.  Experiencing God as the Ocean of Peace also opens up the door in which we can carry the treasures from God and use in our lives.

 

I love it when Baba makes complicated aspects very simple and straightforward.  Today on Identity and Purpose.  I have spoken to new people and those not in gyan, who say ‘I am looking for purpose in my life’ and when they express their feelings it is complicated.  Yet from Baba it is simple:  This is your task.

 

Another aspect that comes with identity is ‘What is my role? ’May be some of you are still asking this question.  In the world this is associated with title and positions.  But in Baba’s world, role is being God’s child and doing what I need to do in the awareness of this.  This is the most beautiful role of the whole cycle as it is real and not just words.  Since the Copper Age we have had this awareness of God as our parent, but no feeling to keep the practical relationship alive.  Now we do…God is protecting me and His blessings are with me because I remember who I am.  The canopy is always there but we can not feel it when we move away from it.

 

Today’s Murli is quite short and then Baba speaks to groups powerfully.  He talks about faith and victory and says ‘Have faith in your victory’.  Baba is saying that ‘Have the faith that whatever task you take up, it definitely will become successful’.  Victory in faith.

 

Om Shanti..

Sister Jayanti – 8th May 2022 – GCH, London Faith brings victory

9 May 2022

Om shanti. Good morning. It's amazing that the song could summarize the whole murli that we're going to be hearing today. This song was about tapasya and the murli is about tapasya. It's the end of the year and Baba’s given us the topic for the coming year and that was referred to in the last murli also, the year of tapasya. I remember many people asking the question,  ‘does that mean we don't do any service?’ And it had been discussed and everybody had agreed that it was going to be a time for tapasya for everyone and so there wouldn't be big programs. But Baba gave another very beautiful answer and Baba said, if you have powerful tapasya, you're actually going to be able to do more service than you can ever do through words because the power of your tapasya is going to bring more souls to God than whatever else it is you do organising big programmes. And so maybe that's a very powerful signal for all of us.

It was lovely having the two years in which many people did have time for themselves, working from home or whatever it was, but I think many more people had time for reflection during the covid years then they’d ever had before. But it seems to be a signal that even though now, yes, we’re engaged in service yet there still has to be that very, very powerful stage. The song even referred to the success that comes through tapasya, how we become angels through tapasya, how we fulfil God's desires through tapasya, how we become like the Father through tapasya. When you hear the murli you’ll know that that's the actual translation of the song, actually.

So that's one particular theme that Baba’ s taken up in a lot of detail. But the other thing that Baba has also taken up is how to turn whatever is negative into positive. And when I looked at the date, I realized that it was in the mid-90s that we had started positive thinking courses. And this is a murli from the 90s, the beginning of the 90s, and it's interesting (and of course it wasn't just then) but Baba had started teaching us how to take change negative things into positive from the ‘30s, but that term ‘positive thinking’ became very popular in the 90s and it’s continued. People still refer to that as being the foundation for a life in which there's happiness and joy.

But the way that Baba’s teaching us of course is not just superficially. But Baba is reminding us that cycle after cycle, you know exactly what is within the Drama. Golden Age you don't know. Iron Age you don't know. But the power and the beauty of the Confluence Age is that you don't have to be surprised about anything ever at all. You know it's happened before, it's happening now, and it will happen again. Amazing and when Baba says every jewel of knowledge is worth multi-millions, it's a reality. Think about the knowledge of the self, the knowledge of God, but most of all the knowledge of Drama because, to a certain extent, people out there use the term soul, use the term God and they have their own ideas about these terms. But Drama in the way Baba has described, no one, no one knows at all. And so this amazing understanding that whatever is happening within the Drama is right.

The other day in the sakar murli Baba mentioned, ‘when it’s the day it is good, when it’s the night it’s also good’. There needs to be a time for physical rest, not just for us, but for the birds and bees and all the living creatures, and so in Sat Yug you’re following the natural timetable. But here everything's topsy-turvy. I remember being told a little while ago that young people stay up through till 4 o’clock in the morning, 5 o’clock in the morning, and then go to sleep. There's always been night birds but it had become part of the culture to do that. So, I don't know whether that's still on but I think it is. And so, topsy-turvy world.

And not only is the night good but Baba has told us in Satyug everything is very regulated in a very natural way. And so through the day there's spring weather with sunshine, but the earth and the trees and humans, deities, everybody needs water and so it rains in the night and the night rain also is not torrential rainfall, but it's gentle rain form. When I was in Hawaii many years ago, they call it ‘liquid sunshine’ because every time there was rain, and it rained quite a bit through the day, there was also a rainbow because there was sun somewhere and so - liquid sunshine.

And so Satyug and everything is perfect and beautiful. And it's because Baba and Brahmins have transformed the world from dark to light and when there's light in the world everything is fine, there's nothing then that's wrong. And if I'm thinking, ‘this is wrong, it shouldn't be like this’…. Brij Mohan bhai had said: ‘right is right but wrong is also right’ because that's the way the Drama is.

You can't fight anyone else because whatever is happening is going on inside, so it’s Ravan who is the enemy, not this one, that one or the other one. But also you cannot fight Drama. Can you argue with Drama? (Jayanti bhen laughing) I’m sure many of you have tried. ‘Why is it like this? It shouldn’t be like this! Okay. I'm going to do something about it. I'm going to make it happen like this’. And you get stuck. And so what are you going to do? Are you going to keep pushing against a wall that will not fall down because you want it to fall down? And so the only possible thing to do at that moment is to recognize that you have to turn back and come back on track. Drama is right.

And so today Baba is saying that if there's a situation in which you're being defamed, take it as a lesson. It's a lesson of tolerance, of endurance and if I'm not managing it very well, thank you Drama; thank you whoever was the person saying those things, because now it's made me realise the extent to which I have to develop further the power of tolerance. And better that I understand that now and develop that now, rather than when I'm in a pickle and I need tolerance power to get through it.

Today it's somebody's words; tomorrow it might be something more difficult. But if today somebody's words make me realize what it is I need to do, it's good because then I can change and adjust and come back onto the track of Drama. So Baba and Drama absolutely work together in tandem. And so, if I love Baba, there has to come a point where I say, I also love this Drama. And if I can change my thinking in every single situation that comes in front of me that's creating storms or waste thoughts, the sooner I come back to that awareness of Drama is accurate and right, the more I'll be able to save my own time and energy.

And so it's a very powerful passage that Baba’s spoken and it's not in the main murli, it's in one of the groups that Baba’s addressing. But of course it's very much part of the tapasya. And so tapasya just isn't when I sit down and meditate but tapasya is being able to stay connected with Baba. And if I'm connected with Baba and Baba is connected with Drama, then surely I will also be aligned with Drama.

And so every time I say ‘it shouldn't be like this’, where did Baba disappear? where did Drama disappear? And so it's part of the subject of tapasya that I learn to be aligned with the Drama.

Baba has gone into a lot of detail. But just the summary of that. Whatever happened in the past, it taught me huge lessons. I don't know what's to happen in the future but I do know that what I do now is going to create my future. But also, it's going to contribute to the future of the transformation of the planet, if I'm aligned with Baba. And that means I'm absolutely focused on what I need to do today and understand what I need to do today. Postponing things for the future doesn't make any sense at all. My stage is whatever it is now and this is what will carry me into the future. So it's a very powerful passage that Baba’s spoken.

Baba’s also spoken about faith and intoxication and victory. And so, nischay (faith), nasha (intoxication), nischint - carefree and nishchit - fixed. Again you can see all these words connected with Drama and Avyakt Baba loves rhyming words. And so nischay - faith. And with that I have intoxication (nasha) of my fortune of knowing God and the fortune that God has made me belong to Him.

But then also nischint; if I am with God and God is with me what is there that I need to worry about? So carefree, completely carefree but together with that, that certainty that yes victory is fixed in the Drama. And so to move forward with that awareness that Baba is carrying me and so it's not even just victory ahead, but it's each step as I take - is there victory?

And at one point Dadi had been asked the question, ‘what's the difference between victory and success?’ And Dadi had said victory is personal. Whatever it is I'm dealing with inside, every step of the way, was there victory? Did I have victory over feelings? Did I have victory over sanskars? Did I have victory over my thoughts? So just keep checking; am I experiencing victory through God my Companion, faith in God, faith in my own destiny? But check, victory at every step.

And success; success is external. Whatever it is we’re engaged in, then that's something that's visible to others also. But victory, I know about. Whether it’s little victories; a thought comes and I deal with it very quickly and finish it. Yes, it's victory. Something happens and I’ve taken power from Baba and I move through it with dignity and grace; that's victory.

And so victory; just keep checking was there victory today, or even in every situation? If there's just a moment of reflection between one thing and the other thing; you're walking from one place to another place, or you're waiting for somebody to come in, there's always these little moments, little pauses no matter how busy somebody is. And so in those little moments and pauses just check, how did I do? Did I experience victory by keeping Baba with me? And so all those little victories are preparing me to deal with big things. And if I'm having victory at each step along the way, then when the big things come I'll keep Baba with me and guarantee there will be victory. And yes, externally there will also be success.

And so as usual, beautiful murli and Sunday - holiday, holy day - a chance to reflect and a chance to experiment with all the tips that Baba’s giving us. Every murli is a ‘how to’ manual: how to deal with myself, how to deal with others, how to deal with Drama, how to deal with whatever it is that's going on. And so treat the murli in that way, as Baba’s instructions for me today.

And Baba’s spoken about - every day, something new. And so externally, something new. The weather changes every day, but something new within myself every day. I can't expect to change my home every day, I can't expect to change others every day; all those external things, maybe they're going to stay the same. But am I new every day? So beautiful murli again.

Om Shanti

Sudesh Didi – 2nd May 2022 Monday Morning Class - GCH, London The natural stage of tapasya

9 May 2022

Om Shanti. Om Shanti. Om Shanti.

Shanti, peace. What is Shanti? What is peace? What does it mean?

Today, or every day, Baba makes us realise, and also enables us to experience Shanti. He explains the meaning of Shanti, not only the words Om Shanti, but become aware that Shanti is my original stage. Peace is my religion; peace is my inner power; the environment of peace brings freshness; it brings the experience of fearlessness.

Peace is actually a flower; like a flower garden which spreads the atmosphere of fragrance of love, contentment, happiness, It naturally draws the attention, and one begins to enjoy without any possessiveness, but with great love, with appreciation, what this peace flower, this garden is offering.

In order to experience peace, the power of peace, you don't show your power of getting peace by breaking it, but you want to love it. You love so much that you bring it so close to you, that indirectly you're kissing it. So, Baba says, "Child, you love Me so much." So, He gives the analogy of the garland around your neck, and a garland sits in the heart. You love peace, that's why it is a garland. It is not a garland that somebody creates in a thread. But you yourself pick up these flowers of peace and you thread them in the thread of love and you keep it in your heart that you instantly think, "Oh, my Home is the Land of peace. My Father is the Bestower of peace. He has come to create the World of peace. There, the peace has no trace of violence, no war, no control, no slavery. It's freedom, its lightness, and no labour because where there's love, whatever you handle it with love, it gives the experience of comfort.

It is a positive energy, the experience of myself, my Home and the remembrance of what Baba is giving us; He is creating a world of peace. a world of happiness. He has come to establish a new world. My Father, the Supreme Mother of Love, is making us aware that when the mind is peaceful, it's clean; the intellect is clear. Our actions are natural, loveful interaction; the relationship is harmonious.

But what is the mother of Peace? The mother of Peace is Purity. It's a pure clear consciousness, and where there's purity there is peace, harmony, respect, love and prosperity. Everything is in abundance. And then the soul is totally free from any kind of tension fear. Natural love. Love and fear do not exist together; where there's fear, you cannot experience love. Where there is love, fear disappears. because love accepts. When correction is given out of love, this correction is not with criticism. This correction is with a benevolent aim, because when there is real love, then things which have gone wrong, you instantly want to put it right. It's not criticism. The things might not be suitable; it is not beautiful, not perfect; if you love something, even if it is broken, you want to mend it.

So, God, the Ocean of Peace, wants us to experience going into deep, deep silence, to experience powerful silence, which we used the word Tapasya. Tapasya here does not refer to anything troublesome like the practice of the sanyasis or rishis and munis. When they speak of tapasya, they mean physically standing on one leg for hours, days, months, years, until they lose balance, and the blood circulation stops. So, it's painful when you see them. When you see them doing hatha yoga, you feel pity and mercy. You ask, "Why are you doing this?" They would answer because one can only meet God through tapasya. But tapasya is not torturing yourself; tapasya is enjoying yourself.

In the Sunday Murli (01/05/22), Baba says that tapasya is the stage of ek ras. God is Ek rasEk ras, on the one side is constant, stable, steady and strong; at the same time, it is ek ras, enjoying yourself in God's Company. For example, when eating something you enjoy, you take a sip of the juice and enjoy the taste. Sip, sip, you take a small portion, little by little, and every time it goes in, it brings pleasure. It is the same with the sweetness of a relationship. It's not any kind of forceful concentration.

Baba said another word, ekagrata. In order to enjoy yourself and in order to become stable, real tapasya gives you the experience of all relationships with Baba. And you naturally concentrate. It's ekagrata. It is Hindi words which Baba enjoys; He enjoys rhyming words; all the words start with ek. It's a figure of speech. In Hindi, it is called anupraas, it means alliteration, using the same alphabet in the beginning.

So, Baba uses alliteration for emphasis. It makes it easy for us to remember, when each term begins with the same word. He says tapasya is just enjoying yourself. And when you begin to enjoy it, there is auto concentration. We can enjoy it only when we first taste it, and try it for ourselves. This enjoyment becomes so much that you'd like to keep it. So, what I mean by this trying is that you are a soul. You are a soul, so, think about it, feel it and understand that you are the child of the One Father. This relationship, this oneness, ekata, belonging to the One in all relationships.

 It is easy to remember; it is not a forceful concentration.  Someone said that he could not remember, and is desperate to experience. I could see that he looked desperate, which means that he must be very much remembering. He said, "This is my problem. I cannot remember." I said, "What are you doing now?" He insisted, "I could not remember." I said, "But you are telling me that you are missing Him very much. And you say you don't remember." When you asked him, he kept saying cannot remember cannot remember. This itself is remembrance. It means that you are missing the same experience that you have enjoyed some time before. When I want to forcefully focus on something, I put tension on myself. It is natural, I am seeing an easy way of remembering what He's given me already and what He is going to give more.

So just remember like a child. A baby or a child does not need to remember everything they are taught. What is the name of your father? What is your address? Where does your father live? What does he do? The child has the intoxication and his respect of who he belongs to. So, he develops that identity that I am the child of so and who my father is. So, he begins to feel proud of himself. But he does not need to keep remembering: My father lives here. His name is this. He's doing this. It's only when someone asks that he remembers. So, for service, you have to give all these details. But for serving yourself, just the first thing, that is, what he has given you already? Yeah, I like the Murli. I understand and churn what each point means and underline relevant points in the Murli. Why are you studying the Murli? I love it. So, this is your love letter. You love the letter so much; you understand whose love letter it is and whose directions they are.

It is just like a child remembering their parent. My papa will come and bring chocolate for me. My papa will come in the evening; he will bring mangoes for me. Since the child has enjoyed mango before, he has enjoyed the taste of toffee before; he is remembering that, even though at this moment, he does not have them. He has finished them and he's thinking that papa will bring back more

Exactly, when you remember the cycle, you don't have to go through Golden Age, Silver Age, Copper Age, Iron Age...no. Just remember now and what you have got before, and tell Him, "Baba, You had given me this Golden Age. I do remember that. I have been happy because whenever moments of happiness come, I enjoy them very much. You must have given me this, and I have lost it. You have come to give me again."  Speak to him with faith, with love, then this heart will open. Otherwise, I cannot experience. Make Him your Friend, become His Khuda Dost. This Friend doesn't mind if you complain to Him or if you tell Him about the pain in your heart. He will not blame you. He will tell you the method or He will give you His Company, such a comfortable Company.

So, it's a companionship with Baba, it's friendship with Baba. It's about developing different relationships with Baba. It's not a question of concentration with force, but what He gives, just like a businessman focuses on his business. For example, say a businessman is sitting at home. The television is on, and his own children are playing. There is so much noise in the room. The phone rings, and he picks up the phone, talks on the phone and closes a deal of a big contract. He's not disturbed by his noise of his children playing or of the TV; in the midst of so much chaos, and yet, is he forcing himself to concentrate? No, but he's concentrating just on what he wants, that is, to make the contract of the business deal. So, it is not that concentration only happens when there is no disturbance from anywhere, wherever you are. We are ek ras because we are focused on what Baba is giving us.

Baba uses many words for tapasya. It’s natural renunciation but it is ekagrata, natural concentration on ek, One. Ek ras, enjoying all relationships with One. Economy, glorifying the name of One, when you are aware of that, you don't want to waste. Eknami and economy, it's one again, that you are not wasting your time, your energy, and you are not actually wasting the energy of the body because we waste a lot of energy, or waste of the use of our organs as well. Seeing unnecessary things, hearing unnecessary things, performing actions while thinking about things which are not pleasant, that we begin to use our heart and our feelings, which creates bad feelings and then we have to mend it. We use the energy of the body, the energy of the mind, of intellect and of our sanskaras, It is not just the economy of money, economy of time, economy of resources. How much nature is giving us which we are losing unnecessarily.

For example, we want to wash your hand, and we keep the water tap is on and the water running while we continue to talk. How much water is used by keeping the tap on? I wash one cup, in the name of washing one cup. I have lost five cups of water. So, some say, but it is only water. But water is also energy. It costs. Of course, when God gives it, nature gives it, they do not cost anything. It is everything in abundance. But when human consciousness is using it, or creating for others to use, it costs. When you swim in the ocean, the ocean doesn't charge you. But at the hotel pool, or a beautiful resort near the ocean with no swimming pool, you have to pay money to use the water. So, the sun does not charge anything. But then it is human being, when we are in body conscious, we are using it but not with economy. So, body, health, wealth and time; time is wealth; nature is wealth; our thought is wealth. So, everything is used in a worthwhile way is also natural tapasya. It is renunciation in a way, because we have become very careless. Economy is also tapasya.

So, Baba says and then naturally you are aware what Baba says and you are glorifying His name as well through your practical attention. Ekagrata, solitude is also tapasya. It means even whilst being in a crowd, you are still lost in conversation with Baba. Remembering loveful stories and experiences with Baba; or you are focusing on the task He has given you. So, you may be in a crowd, but you are lost in your task of responsibility that He has given to you. But with pleasure and without labour, you're busy or enjoying. So, whatever is done with love and care is actually a proof of remembering and attention. In the same way, He said Ek Bal Ek Bharosa, One Strength One Support, in remembrance of One and one begins everything every time when you multiply something. For example, to multiply first get one and then 000, the number increases. In mathematics, when you are writing a number, one times nine is nine. But in order to make ten, you know to add one. Then, in order to make it 100 from 99, I have to add one again. Every time, it is creased by one, a new start begins. So, I have come to create the new cycle once again

Remember One, one religion, one kingdom, one family, one world. By remembering One, you are able to keep connected with everyone because all our children have the same Parent. A world is being created of oneness. So, we are children of one Parent, same Parent, Mother and Father, same. So, remember the power of One who is the Bestower of Peace, the Creator of Peace. My Home is peaceful. My religion is peace. My task is of a peace messenger, is also a different way of remembering Him. Even His name, the Benevolent Being is also remembering Him. Of course, there is full explanation, of Baba's complete introduction.

As our maturity increases, we are able to not only keep what Baba has given us, but to experience satisfaction by giving joy, and experience happiness by giving to others. That is also experiencing peace. So, peace is positive; peace is power' peace is my religion; peace is my education; peace is my experience, which is coolness but peace in action. This is why there is economy when I am using peace in action. When I am not using peace in action, I am peaceless, tensed and worried. When speaking, instead of one word, it becomes ten words; anger will come instead of acceptance and appreciation. Peace will disappear, and anger is emerged. It is courage and confidence, it's energy, and enlightenment. Peace is power. And that's why our home is a peaceful world. This is why it is important to remember peace and purity because the Home, the soul world, is the region of purity and peace. So, Om Shanti.

Baba is peaceful. Home is peaceful. I am peaceful. You are peaceful. So, Om Shanti. Today is Bank 'Holy-day'. Holy Day means happy day. Right? Eat Drink and be happy. Extra toli today. Om shanti.

Sister Jayanti – 1st May – GCH, London Baba is mine and I belong to Baba

4 May 2022

Baba has defined tapasya in a very simple way and has also mentioned that the foundation of tapasya is unlimited disinterest.  That stage where nothing else pulls you at all and in that context Baba is saying that everything becomes very simple when you remember one word and that is “One”.  And so when everything I need, everything I want comes from One, from the Source, from the Supreme, then it is easy to have detachment and disinterest in everything else around as well.

The definition of unlimited disinterest is to just stay focused on One and through that there can be the tapasya that we really need.  We need to have tapasya so that there is always this balance of what is of benefit to me personally and how does it benefit the world around me and you can see that there is absolutely a direct need for tapasya at this moment. 

It is needed for myself to be able to maintain stability so that the scenes of the current situations whatever they may be, whether it is dealing with my sanskars or those of others, but I need  deep intense tapasya, a deep connection with Baba so that I can draw that power and maintain that stability within myself but also I am aware that whatever changes have taken place I know that a lot more still needs to happened and so to be able to recognize my sanskars and know what it is I need to change. There isn’t any other way to bring about transformation except through tapasya, that intense connection with God that gives me all the different powers that I need for transformation.

However far I have come there is still a long way to go and I am sure that most people in this audience will agree with that but for some it is only a short way to go, but it is going to be possible through tapasya  And in terms of the world we get the news from all around one way or another even if we don’t read newspapers, watch television etc and the things that are going on in the world are just inhuman. 

So what is it that we can do sitting far away and maybe there are things happening just down the road or maybe my neighbours -    how can I help them?  They are not ready to listen to Baba’s teachings and maybe I am not even in contact with them. They may be far away.  I can’t say to them come let me share with you my understanding of God.  They maybe wouldn’t be ready for that.

What everyone needs to feel is that inner strength and support and maybe to know that although darkness is prevailing at the moment, beyond that darkness there is light and so our tapasya, sending out those vibrations, one at a time is fine, we start with that but  as we send out those vibrations of God’s love, God’s light, God’s peace collectively, souls who are ready to feel that and take benefit from that are going to be able to feel that solace reaching them.  The world needs our tapasya.

Today in the murli, Baba is talking to a group from Punjab and the year is 1990, the days of a lot of upheaval there and Baba is saying to them that you have to give people something.  They may not be able to take Baba’s knowledge but let them take something from Baba through you whether it is peace, whether it is light, whether it is that inner strength, that might.  So specially now, what was the world like tin 1990. There has always been something or other going on but today,  it doesn’t feel that it is just going on here and there but it feels that the whole world is impacted.  The pandemic was a start of that sense that no one nation is isolated.  Everyone is in the same situation together but now also although we may have had several hundred wars in peace time, since the end of the Second World War many wars have been happening in all parts of the world. 

The Middle East immediately attracts attention by the world because it is connected with the world, but equally now whatever is happening there are repercussions worldwide in so many different ways.  So our tapasya,, sending out our vibrations of God’s light, is absolutely essential. 

So the definition of tapasya - to have that focus only on One. So where do I begin?  I am a social creature, I have so many connections, so many things to do in the world.  Where do I begin?  And the first step is introversion. 

When I am ready to look inwards rather than continually facing outwards, and we don’t even realise that that is what is going on.  Body consciousness, looking outwards, extroversion, has become natural after thousands of years.  Even something you have been doing for a few days you become habituated to that and that becomes natural.  So something you have been doing for thousands of years is very deep and feels very natural.  But with that awareness of who I am and who I belong to, in that awareness I know that without soul consciousness I cannot experience God.

We all experience that when the mind is scattered anywhere else we can’t feel God’s presence. But it takes just literally a moment, one thought and I turn inwards and I find that stable space inside.  And I can feel the soul, then in that awareness of the soul I can feel God’s presence very quickly.

So the first step: to be able to feel that introversion and connected very much with that Baba has used the word ekantpriya – to have love for solitude – to have love for space where I can be silent and it is not always easy to find an external space where you can be silent and Baba is not asking us to go and sit in Mount Abu all the time but just to be able to have that love for solitude and you are able to find that space inside, which is solitude.  I am alone with God. And you can do that wherever you are.  You may be in an office with lots of people around you but just for a moment you go to your own centre within – that love for solitude pulls you to go inside. 

And that love for solitude and experiencing that again and again allows God’s presence to reach the soul and so love for solitude, introversion and the most important to know that there is only one source and that whatever it is I need it can take from that One.

Baba uses the image that I have to step away from all supports, all the shores, and that idea of the shore -  that I am taking support here but what will happen if I let go, am I going to be floating in the ocean or am I going to be drowning if I let go of that support.

So, more and more, to be able to develop that connection with God where truly I feel that God is giving me everything that I need. But Baba is also saying don’t do it slowly.  Time is racing ahead and we don’t even know what is going to happen by the end of the day, or tomorrow. But if I build up my relationship with Baba now then I won’t need the supports that I used to depend on.

An interesting comment from Baba.  Baba is giving us the power and the understanding to be able to move away from our dependencies and our supports now so that when times become more critical and we know that it will, we don’t feel stranded and lost.  A time is going to come when everyone is going to move away from their supports but that will be Drama showing scenes that it has to show. And at that moment I will not know how to take God’s help but if I start practising now and two questions I need to ask myself to make sure that I am moving away from all supports:  What is it I want and how many desires do I have.   And my wants are not my needs.  My needs are something else and very connected with” I want” is “I like”.

Like and don’t like are very normal things to say but I like, I don’t like – I am being pulled by different feelings and emotions – no.  What is it that I like?  I like whatever Baba provides, or is it I want.  Baba provides us with everything we need.  Why should I want anything more than that?  If we make a list of what it is that Baba has given us already, physical, spiritual, emotional, across the board Baba has either shown you how to get what you need and what you want.  He shows us the method and then if I don’t want to follow the method and I go here and there then Baba is going to say that is your choice.

There is a very clear straight line of how to take whatever it is I need and I want from One.  And Baba has also mentioned how when it is a question of need.  I don’t need to spend my time and energy letting my mind go here and there.  I know that Baba, my father and Drama, my mother, work together to provide what it is that I need.  Who has had that experience – many are nodding their heads.

It is a reality of our lives – you belong to God and God provides.  That doesn’t mean that I sit back and expect it to come to me anyway.  I do what I need to do in terms of my effort because I know that karma is part of life, just as I can’t be without karma you cannot be without karma yoga.  If we try to do karma on its own the outcome is a question mark.  Is it going to be the right karma, the right result?  But if I make sure there is yoga and then karma then that karma yoga is going to bring the results that are absolutely right and that will be what it is that I need.  Never use the word karma on its own now.  Use the expression karma yoga.

Baba says that tapasya is when your mind and intellect are both connected with One – mind connected with One - an easy method for that is to churn knowledge.  And even if you don’t go into the depths of knowledge, let your mind gently revise knowledge – what did Baba say today.  What was Baba talking about that was important for me.  It may not be today’s murli.  It might have been yesterday.  But to keep the mind engaged with Baba’s versions means that I am going to find it easy to connect with God.

Then the intellect.  We have all had the experience where the mind is going around and things seem to be on track but yet there is still something else that is pulling me.  Maybe it is a lost key.  A very simple thing.  How often do we lose our keys?  And I am trying to sit in yoga and trying to think about Baba’s gyan and trying to be soul conscious, but there is something that is pulling.  And a key is a very simple thing but it could be something more serious than that so can I also check what is it that pulls my intellect.  Where there are desires, wants, needs and supports.  All these are things that will pull my intellect.  So Baba is connecting the stage of moving away from all supports and all desires.

Yesterday or the day before, Baba was saying become ignorant of what it is to desire.  Become ignorant of what it is to have a need or a want and so the deeper my connection with Baba the more I am able to receive from Baba and the more I am able to give others what I have received instead of wanting to take from them – it is all connected.

In that state where I know there is only one source and I am turning inwards to connect with that one source then my mind can be reflecting on Baba’s knowledge and my intellect is deeply connected with Baba and all will be well.  Tapasya is going to ensure that my sanksars go through change and also I am giving out to the world what the world needs.

The murli has very categorically mentioned today someone who was a very beautiful soul in the yagya who left and the date of the murli is the day that it had been mentioned.  It was the departure of Dadi Santri.  She was Dada Vishwa Kishore’s partner and those of you who have heard Dadi’s classes would remember that she has often talked about this soul who passed away in 1968 just a few months before Baba and she had been Baba’s right hand.  Baba would give a signal and it would be done. The faith that soul had was incredible.

Dadi Santri was the first one to take care of Baba and looked after his physical needs and then in the last several years she was in Calcutta with Dadi Nirmalshanta.  Dadi Santri was like a fragile flower in the world but yet, of course, very strong in faith, in commitment and determination and so an amazing example.  They had the stage of being totally detached.  You would not have known that there was any connection because they both belonged to Baba and there was a connection of spirituality but no bondage.

Om Shanti

Sister Jayanti - 29th March 2022 - Revision Avyakt Murli

4 May 2022

Baba has a very specific formula that He uses in the avyakt murlis.  I'm sure everybody's noted it down now that Baba begins with a reminder of our greatness, our fortune, and how wonderful the children are. And then, Baba gradually begins to tell us all the things that we need to do. Baba also then reminds us of the example of Brahma Baba and the Dadi's, so that we are aware of what it is they have achieved and we can also do the same. This murli very clearly followed that pattern; Baba reminding of the lines of fortune that we show on our forehead. And Elizabeth summarised the three: the lovely sustenance we have from the Father, the wisdom we acquire from the Teacher through the teachings that God gives and, the blessings that Baba gives us in the form of the Satguru. Baba reminded us that there's no-one, but no-one in the world who can have such amazing fortune as we do. It's true. Baba also then says that the sparkle that radiates from each of these lines is a little bit different for each one. The sustenance that the loving Father gives is the same for all. Whether someone comes right at the very beginning like the original jewels. Or, comes a little bit later. It's okay they get the same loving sustenance. They also have the same teachings. It's not that Baba gives a separate murli to anyone. No Baba gives the same murli to everyone. The blessings we receive are also all the same, but it becomes numberwise to the extent that we wish to imbibe all of this. Then the brightness of the light that radiates is different for each one.

 Baba was talking about love and it's very beautiful that Baba explained how everyone says that Baba loves me and I love Baba. I belong to Baba and Baba belongs to me. So we say this with our right, with our special birthright and authority of that, and Baba's happy with that. Baba's pleased that we have that spiritual intoxication with which we say this. Yes, Baba loves me more than anyone else and yes, I love Baba more than anyone else. Each one knows about the love that's in their heart and the love that they're receiving from Baba. Also, Baba pointed out that everyone has passed in the subject of love. Yes, we reach Madhuban flying in the plane of love. We're the only ones who experience God's love and this is the only time to be able to experience that. The deities can give us love later on, but there's no other time except this to receive God's love directly. This is what then prepares us for the whole cycle. Focusing on that aspect of love, Baba said, do you keep this intoxication, this spiritual consciousness as you walk, and work, and do all the things that you need to? When we're in Madhuban it's easy to feel that intoxication. And yes it's easy to remind us of the same at amrit vela. But Baba was quite specific. Are you able to keep this through the whole day? Because the reality is that if we keep this intoxication of love through the whole day then whatever challenges come our way, it'll be very easy to deal with them. And, if we forget about this intoxication of love then, little things can come and we blow them up and they become a big hurdle, a big obstacle. So, Baba was reminding us that it's the power of love that can enable us to cross everything and go beyond and reach the other side. Then Baba said, well, it's great that you've all passed in the subject of love - that's wonderful. But what about the other subject, and that is transformation? And how are you doing with that? Baba was making it very interactive at that point asking us the questions. What do you think? How do you think your speed is going? What do you think is the speed of things going on in the world? You know that the things happening in the world are going very fast. I've no idea what was happening in 2010 when this murli was being spoken, but it certainly applies absolutely at this moment. Just look around the state of the world and we talk about one part quite a bit because it's sort of immediate and it's demanding our attention. The one part of the world, Ukraine and Russia, but equally there's so many other things going on whether it's Afghanistan, whether it's Syria, whether it's all these other places where troubles haven't finished. The troubles started many years ago in these places and they continue. So you know the press, the media, especially social media loves taking up a subject for how long? A day? 3 days? That's about it. Then it drops the subject and moves on to something else. So we tend to forget that these things are still bubbling and might boil over any minute. All of this is going on and Baba's saying; can you see how fast the speed of the things happening in the world is? And truly that is a reality. Especially today, whatever it was then but very much so today. So does your speed of effort match what's going on? I see some people going like this; well, that's okay because the fact that we're hearing this murli in Madhuban, and all those who are hearing it out there. The fact that Baba's talking to us directly at this moment means that there's still a chance. It isn't that the doors are shut, that it's too late. At some point that also will happen and the board of ‘too late’ will go up. For the moment it's late but not too late.

 Baba then said; can you change your ordinary effort into intense effort, fast effort, so that your speed of transformation matches what's going on in the world and you're able to move a step ahead of that? And a very powerful method that Baba gave us - all you have to do is to say to yourself; every thought I have which is accurate and pure I'm going to apply it. I'm going to put it into practice. Not just that I keep the thought in my head and I get busy with other things. No, let me hear what Baba's saying and if I agree with it, then let me make it practical here and now, So keep that determined thought to make it practical, and if there are thoughts that are inaccurate what to do about those? Again, Baba gave a very sweet method to be able to deal with it. Are you able to delete them just as quickly as you're able to put a full stop on a sheet of paper? Now how long does it take to put a full stop, a dot? It takes less than a second. Can I delete whatever are inaccurate thoughts as quickly? Because by now I know what thoughts are right and what thoughts are not right. And so when something that's not right starts to emerge full stop, finish it, delete it. And so Baba reminds us that that will be the way in which you're able to make your efforts fast and intense. Otherwise, we're going to run out of time.

 Then Baba went on to talk about the beginning of the year, and I'm sure none of us would remember what was the murli of New Year 1990? I remember another thing connected with that though, the fact that that was the time of Dadi's new birth. Because she was in Ahmedabad, she'd become nwell, and it was pneumonia, and we didn't have a centre anywhere except Pandav Bhawan on top of the mountain. And so the cold and everything - 31st December -  they took her to Ahmedabad so that she could be in a space that was a bit warmer. In Ahmedabad, Dadi decided that she would sit up in front of Baba, in Baba's room, and just simply be with Baba through the night. Because Baba would stay with us through the whole night and be with us after midnight, sometimes meeting individuals or groups after midnight even. That was the time that Dadi was there, and Baba had remembered her and Baba sent her sakaash. Next day, Rosie bhen from Chennai was leaving, so Baba had given Rosie bhen special greetings for Dadi, and love, and toli's, and everything else. And so, Rosie bhen arrived and she saw that there was a turn-around. The day before it looked as if Dadi was about to fly away, and then when she arrived on the 1st January, Dadi was perked up. And that was Dadi's new birth. We don't really know the date of Dadi's birthday. So then she said, okay my birthday's going to be this one, the time that Baba gave me a new spiritual birth. I don't remember the rest of the murli but Baba doesn't forget, Baba remembers. And so Baba's saying, that Baba had spoken to you about transformation at the start of the year, and in particular, the transformation of sanskars and nature. You all put up your hands that yes, you were ready to transform and the Dadi's saw it all. It's on camera. But are you now ready to transform your sanskars and nature absolutely to the extent that tomorrow we celebrate and we have a ceremony where we are finishing all the old sanskars? It's the end of the old sanskars. Baba caught us out on that one having told us that yes, transformation, and you want to have fast transformation and everybody nodding their head and putting up their hands. Then Baba told us well, what about tomorrow? Now, I can understand why Baba said that; because if you postpone something it'll always get delayed, and delayed, and more delayed. But if you say I'm going to do something now, it's more than likely to happen. And so Baba reminded us that, finish all those old sanskars and nature now. Don't let them hang around otherwise again it will be too late. No, finish everything, tomorrow in the ceremony. And so Baba wanted us to raise our hands for those who were willing to have a ceremony the next day. There weren't the same number of hands that there'd been earlier. But, Baba reminds us that it's either now or it's never going to happen. Do I have that courage? Do I have the courage to say yes instant transformation, immediate transformation? And then Baba gives us the example again of Brahma Baba. The courage that Brahma Baba had when there was nobody else who he could turn to. There was no one else who had any experience of what he was going through. He was alone, and he just made Baba his companion. With that strength he was able to be absolutely immovable and unshakeable. As a result of one soul being absolutely stable in the highest consciousness, he was able then to be the pioneer that was then inspiring so many centres to form, so many Brahmins to take birth. Baba's saying, look at all that's happened? Not just Brahmins and centres, but also programs. Think about all the programs that are going on in the world and whose making it all happen? Shiv Baba of course, but definitely Shiv Baba worked his wonders through Brahma Baba.

 Baba's saying that just as he had the courage and he surrendered everything instantly - his mind, his body, his wealth, are you able to follow in the father's footsteps and do the same? This mantra of following the father is a very powerful one. If there's a question, but I don't see him, how can I follow him? The footprints are still there; the things that he did when he was here in the physical form. And so Baba's saying, that for Shiv Baba you always say; well he doesn't have a body, and so there's no question of body consciousness, but Brahma Baba was a bodily being, a human being. Just read his life story, listen to the things that the Dadi's have always spoken about Baba. Listen to the murli. The murli gives you an insight into how Shiv Baba and Brahma Baba both think. Brahma Baba made sure that his thinking was completely aligned to Shiv Baba so that the two energies could work together in harmony. If Brahma Baba hadn't aligned his thinking with Shiv Baba, Shiv Baba's wanting to take the horse and chariot in this direction, and Brahma Baba's pulling the horse in a different direction; and what would happen? Nothing. It would come to a standstill. Brahma Baba surrendered his intellect to God, and so Shiv Baba held the reins of the horse, the intellect, the reins and the horse's mind, the wild horses. Shiv Baba held the reins in his hands because Brahma Baba had surrendered those reins to Shiv Baba and was simply following Baba's directions. Wherever it is that Shiv Baba would take him, Brahma Baba would follow, Baba would go. So there was this total alignment and synchronicity. No difference between the One and the other. But what about us? When something happens, are my thoughts, words and actions aligned to how Baba thinks? You know in any given situation sometimes we see two sides. Or maybe this, maybe this, maybe this, maybe this? This is fluctuation. But sometimes in a situation and it's a demanding one, it's a challenging one. When there's such a very clear awareness of what it is I need to do at this moment; and so that's the sign of having surrendered my intellect to God. Baba also mentioned that when there is this surrender, and when you do have that discipline over your weaknesses and whatever else, then, in that stage there won't be any tiredness. There won't be any fluctuation but rather you'll be having a smile and doing whatever it is that needs to happen, and you won't feel tired at all. Interesting that Baba should pick up on how tiredness is a sign of carelessness. Then Baba went on to talk quite a bit about carelessness and how the sign that is visible of carelessness: a) you feel tired and b) you're not happy. And so you're not cheerful. But at this moment in the cycle Baba says your face, your smile should be able to do service. Even before they're ready to listen to you, that smile and your face touch them so that they can feel another vibration, which is what used to happen with all the different Dadi's. Any one of the Dadi's who you met and it was their face that showed you that they were unique. They were rather special. Now the Dadi's are subtle, avyakt and we can connect with them. But the rest of the world, they're going to be looking at us, and they're going to be checking and seeing. Are we following the truth of what it is we say? Are we walking our talk? And so Baba's comment about carelessness. Very interesting that the expression that is very gyani and yogi and the expression that somebody says when they're careless: the words are the same, but the sense that's made from it is very, very different.

 The same words; yes, victory is destined and yes, it has to happen like this. And yes it's going to happen like this, and so one is with faith on the basis of gyan and yoga. And I know that victory is fixed. And I know that yes, everything is going to happen in the right way. When I say these words, then it's with what Baba told us: with a smile, with joy, with love knowing that yes, the right thing is going to happen. And when it's out of carelessness that I say, well, victory is fixed anyway, yes it's going to be fine, it'll all work out, I'm sure it's going to be okay - now the tone is different. The intention is different, and of course the results are going to be very different also. If I'm saying well, yeah, you know, victory is fixed, it's going to happen, it'll happen for everybody else, but I've no idea, and certainly Baba's not giving me a guarantee at this moment, whether that victory is destined for me. Unless I have made that intense effort that Baba's talking about. If I've made that intense effort in the right way, in the way that Baba wants, not just simply because I think this is the right way or I think this should be like this. No, there's a very specific method that Baba teaches us for everything, everything. Right from the morning till the night. Even if it means consultation with your team; 5 members, 7 members, whoever it is, take the time to do that so that process of consultation and then coming back with a response is going to keep me light. It's going to keep me happy. It's going to keep me ever smiling. And so, Baba reminds us of how carelessness can be the big, big factor that actually makes us slip up. We think we're gonna be okay, but we're not looking at our track record and actually seeing whether for sure it is going to be okay or not. Baba's saying that yes, compare yourself with Brahma Baba, see Brahma Baba, copy Brahma Baba. In lokik exams if you're caught copying - instant dismissal, instant failure. There's no margin for discussion when there's copying. But with Baba, I was saying that's fine, copy Brahma Baba, copy him as much as you can. And when we do follow and copy Brahma Baba, then we're also able to handle all the hurdles and move straight forward to the final step. It was interesting that, even in the comment about Brahma Baba - just think about the number of centres that have happened? Think about the programs that are going on? Think about all the new children that have come to Baba and have become Brahmins? How did all this happen? One individual had the faith, courage, determination, and the love and wisdom. All of that, but certainly the faith and the courage and determination. So we're seeing the practical results of Baba's faith. And so, to what extent do I have similar faith? Faith that is immovable, unshakeable? Faith that's definitely going to allow me to have that determination to bring about transformation here and now and reach that final stage that Baba wants. Then Baba reminds us right at the end that all those who are listening also have had the same determined thought, and it's everyone together that's going to be able to reveal the Father. Very interesting - Baba said half the work is done, and Baba explained that half the work was the fact that the children have been revealed in front of the world. By then we'd had seven Peace Messenger Awards by the UN. A huge amount of media publicity in Bharat, so the children were being revealed in front of the world. But, we have yet to reveal Baba, show the world that God has come. And just think about it. How many years ago did Baba say that? That's already 30 years plus! And we still haven't completed the task, and the conditions of the world continue to degenerate. So we're seeing how imperative it is that we actually should have that determined thought that every pure thought I have, I'm going to make it happen. I'm going to put it into practice. And every inaccurate thought I'm going to put the dot, the full stop, as easy as putting it on paper but equally being able to delete it for myself. So that's the sort of determination and powerful inspiration that Baba wants us to have at this moment in the cycle.

 

Q: A simple question - what's the difference between nature and sanskars? And how do they interplay with one another. Which would be the root or the base?

 A: I see sanskars as being something that we've lived with for many, many births, through many births. And I see nature- the Hindi word is swabhav. And so the 'swa' is the original state, the bhavna, the feelings that I have, but it could also be the intentions that I have. So If I go back to the origin of that, then my original nature is something very beautiful. And accept that you know how today I'll give you an example that clarifies it for me. Here's somebody who is strong and powerful and that is their sanskar to be like this, but then on top of it they also have the nature of actually being a little bit bossy, or a little bit pushy because it all goes together, in a sense. And so yes, the sanskar is to let me go out and do it and make it happen. But then the nature that interferes in Kalyug is that I tend to be a little bit pushy, and a little bit bossy. Maybe I'm even a little bit loud with that. What I have to do is when I'm dealing with somebody who is loud and pushy and da, da, da, da, then I have to remind myself what is their original sanskar? And their original sanskar's a very nice one of actually being able to make things happen with courage and determination. On the surface of it, I'm seeing this aspect which is not very pleasant. This is what the Dadi's used to do; they didn't see the superficial aspect but they saw the depth of the quality of the soul. They saw the sanskar that was a good sanskar within that individual. And so this is why sometimes we'd wonder, you know, how come I don't have time for this person because of the way they're behaving. But the Dadi's would have time for them in the sense of valuing them, appreciating them and so that's where there's a divergence now. Then whether there are sanskars that are not so good from the Copper Age; my sanskar of greed. Well, the manifestation of that in my nature would then be accumulation, hoarding. But the depth is actually my neediness, I'm not fulfilled. I'm not able to fill myself. And so that neediness is making me greedy, and the way then to overcome it is just take whatever Baba is giving and be very content and filled with that. And so then you're dealing with both the Copper Age aspect of the sanskar but also at this moment it's a superficial manifestation where you see somebody accumulating and you wonder why. But it's their insecurity. There's discontent within the soul.

 

Q: So it's a bit like the nature is the root or the essence?

A: The sanskar is the root. I was describing two different situations. One is where the sanskar is good but the external nature is not so pleasant, but the sanskar that it is there - think about a lion. A lion who’s roaring, and the roar of the lion is so strong that you don't want to come near but actually the lion is good, courageous, powerful and strong. But of course, other things, so an analogy can only take you that far and not the whole way. And the other stage where it's not a pure sanskar and also the manifestation in nature is also not so pure.

 

Q: You did touch on how Baba had graced us with so much love, loving each of us more than the other, and asking us how much do we feel that love. We love Baba so much in return and realise our great fortune. Is there a correlation perhaps of realising this love and fortune, and how it can help me in transforming these thoughts and also acting on those positive ones?

 A: You know when you feel a very powerful love. It's a very strong motivation and so you're really inspired to do something especially when it's coming to you from the one you love. The one you love wants you to do this, that or the other. You won't stop. You're going to make it happen. Nothing can stop you because of your love, you're going to say, I need to do this. I have to do this and it doesn't matter whether it's staying up awake through the night, or whether it's walking 10 miles, and whatever is needed. Definitely, there is this correlation and why Baba's emphasising this pure love that we've all experienced from Baba. Baba's saying; now remember there is this love. But what is it that Baba's asking of you? Baba's asking of you to transform so that you can be the best that you are. Baba's also inspiring me for myself. Baba's using that love to trigger my own passion for change so that I'm doing it out of love for Baba. A simple example - when you come to Baba and Baba says wake up for amrit vela. Now who would want to give up their sweet sleep? And yet everybody's willing to do it because Baba's asked me to do it. I might struggle, but I know this is what Baba's asking of me, and so instantly we're ready to do it, and then we come to appreciate its benefit gradually. But, because Baba has said to do this I'm ready to do it.

 

Q: On the aspect of courage; Brahma Baba didn't have anyone to follow and that's where I myself have so much regard for Brahma Baba. He had no one. Of course he had the cooperation and was able to do amazing things. Even in your situation, if I may, Jayanti behn, you were one of the first pioneers to do service abroad. I'm certain that there were moments where you were like, what to do now? What should I do? This isn't the way they do things in India. Open doors and open hearts and begin service. So it would be lovely to hear your experience of courage, and how you found the courage to begin service in the west?

A: When you're actually experiencing courage you don't put a label on it. You don't say I want to be courageous or I am courageous. Or can I be courageous? You just do what you need to do. What happened with me was again Baba. Baba asked me to go back to London. No centre, but yes I had my lokik mother as somebody who was a very pukka raja yogi for many years already, so there was a huge amount of support on that level. But you're right there was nobody who could share with me how to do service. And so in that first instance after coming back from India where there were ready made platforms and it was very easy to just write a few points, think about Baba's gyan and then stand up and just speak that's it. That's all I had to do. I didn't have to prepare anything else except my own stage and a few notes. I didn't have to get leaflets printed. I didn't have to book a hall. I didn't have to do anything. I came to London and I was very intoxicated. Baba has said I'm sending you for service. Now, all I have to do is to make sure I'm following the Madhuban timetable which was Baba's instruction to me. And, I just thought I'd go knocking on doors and the doors would open, and it didn't happen. So that was great because, it taught me to let go of ego. But I can actually do anything. Then when I wrote to Dadi Prakashman, she'd said write to me in English and I'll reply whether it's Hindi or Sindh., Rajini behn can read it. Or whether it's English I'll reply, and sure enough she did. I wrote to her saying, Dadi there's no service here in London. I think I need to come back to India. And, Dadi's reply was and it was in English, I think Rosie behn was there in Madhuban at the time, and the reply was, even if there isn't outside service there's always self service. And it was a magic mantra. It just made me realise that something that I'd thought about before, that the Dadi's had 14 years of tapasya, and I was thrown into the field of service instantly. I took gyan in April, came to stay at the centre in October and that's it. In October I was on a platform. And so there was no time for that inner preparation. And so I made a timetable of yoga, a chart of soul consciousness, a chart of writing and preparation of churning of gyan, all of these things. I really wasn't looking for anything outside of that point and I just thought this is my time. This is time for me. I was on the lookout for information about new organisations that I hadn't yet contacted. I came across this organisation called the Spiritualist Association of Great Britain and their address was very classy. It was right in Belgrave Square in Knightsbridge. So, Rajini behn and I trot along, make an appointment and we see the Secretary. He looks at what I would have been quite embarrassed to show many others, but somehow he was so warm and I carried this; that picture album that had the original India pictures. You know Raven, and all of those things, the whole works. The first few images were of the soul and then of Shiv Baba, the point of light. At the end he said, well, what can I do for you? And I said, well, we've come to see if there's space for lectures. And he said, yes, and he took out the diary for the program and he said, well we don't have anything immediately. It was around September. We've got something in December. So can I book you for four lectures in December once a week? This is how we do it, we do a series. And I gulped inside. Because I'd never done a series of four lectures. I'd only done one-off lectures, and remember I'd only been in gyan by then from April - about 18 months. So there was 18 months of gyan. But I said yes, because I was not going to let a door shut now that it was opening. I thought Baba will help me. So I just said yes. Then we fixed dates and things and he wanted to give us an honorarium which was the usual thing, and I said no; that can be our contribution to your work but we don't take money. Then I asked him but you don't know us, you're meeting us for the first time, so how is it that you instantly gave us all this time? And he said, remember that picture you showed me of that point of light? Well, I've just come out of a year's sabbatical in which I was having silence because I needed silence for myself, and at the end of that year of silence I had a vision. And it was a vision of God as a being of light. So when you spoke about that and showed me that image I knew. It resonated. It was the truth. So yes, after December if you want to come back for more we can arrange more and the door of service opens. So it had just taken preparation on my side. Was it courage? I'm not sure. But it was determination, that's for sure. Baba sent me and something's going to happen. So I think it was more determination than courage in a sense. But Baba had said, do this. I have to do this.

 

Q: Here we are in 2022 and what it takes? And I'm sure those of you who've started service in your countries - it takes courage. The point you are emphasising, Baba said, your main service is to work on your stage.

AOnce those doors opened, people like Charlie, Ken came from that place, so it was absolutely God's plan that here's a person who wants to do tapasya - this person, the secretary, and this is going to be the place that begins service in London. And, sure enough that was a place where we had the exhibition, the first exhibition outside India. Baba talked a lot about exhibitions today. So that was the first exhibition outside India in '71. So the doors opened in 1970 and the first delegation came in 1971 just a few months later. It was the same person who said yes, well the place where we have our book's store, there's space, you can put up your pictures. Yes, ask your people in India to come.

(Wow.) So everything happened from there.

 

Q: Baba says to know that it's going to happen and you know don't worry, have the courage and it definitely has to happen. Then you said not to be carelessthinking; oh well, victory is our birthright. It's sort of like the brake, and the accelerator in a way, if I may use that as an analogy - how to keep a balance of my own efforts in making good karma and also with destiny? So the correlation of karma and destiny? What is destined? The beauty of this moment and what decisions I make from this moment of karma? It is my right, it will happen, but then not to rely on that.

 A: When you say it's going to happen, then exactly as Baba said today, what am I doing to make it happen? If I'm going to sit back and say well, it's going to happen and I just sit back comfortably and wait for something to happen, nothing will happen. But it's destined that Baba's given me the inspiration to do something. Let me put my full heart and energy and love into it. Like, this murli there was another sentence that caught my attention that I hadn't said. How, when you do something with love, you do it with joy, you do it with happiness. And, since you're going to have to do something anyway, do it happily. Don't do it because somebody's expecting you to do it. But just do it with that love and joy and be happy about it. That was a very interesting comment from Baba. And so, if I've got a touching can I do this? Well, Baba says put it into practice if it's a good thought. And if it's for self progress definitely, it's going to be a good thought. If it's something for service, I'm sure that everywhere there's one, or two, or ten, or twenty that you have to consult with. Well, consult with them, and if the majority are saying, no, no, no, no, no, okay. Maybe it's not the right time. It's a good idea and yes it'll happen, but not yet. Or if immediately there's consensus then you know it's the right touching from Baba and it's going to happen beautifully. And you make it happen then in that way. And so, I see that pure thoughts you get that touching to do something! Do it. Don't wait if it's just for you. And if it's for service, then consult whoever you need to consult and it'll happen. To have a pure thought and then say, well I'll do it later. Or a pure thought and I say, well, you know there's somebody else who can do it. Why should I actually give my time and attention? I'm going to have to forget about my sleep. I'm going to have to adjust my timetable; for my food and everything else, and so I won't bother. Then it's not in your destiny. The thought came but you didn't act on it. And so it's the action that then creates the destiny. That's the correlation there.

 

Q: That makes it very clear. Opportunities come every day but am I willing to act on it? Baba really emphasised that there should be the Father's revelation, and it should be that from everyone's lips that they will recognise and know that God has come. And, I was wondering when you know Baba's just had a whole homework of harmonising sanskars of working on ourselves, will that completion of the self, working on the self, and also in the harmony within the family, within centres, within service, would be how the tables will turn? We're going to reveal the Father to everyone - if you could say something about what you know?

A: When everyone collectively has that pure powerful thought of transformation; that this is now, when I don't want to postpone things anymore. I want to do what I need to do now. When we share this collective powerful thought, that is going to be the moment that then all of our collective energy is going to shift things, and Baba can be revealed. People will see the transformation, and they will say; yes surely this is God's work. God has come. Baba often talks about the collective rather than just the individual. My own personal effort has to continue. I can't wait for the collective. Can my personal, individual effort be such that there's a wave that spreads? You know Dadi used to say, when one bird flies the whole flock flies also. And so, that powerful thought of transformation. And within all of us then, that thought spreads, you know how long are we gonna carry on with if and but and maybe? But, this is now that moment. And so, maybe what's happening in Ukraine and Russia is bringing us to that point where we realise it has to be now. We can't postpone. Then God can be revealed.

 As you know we had this special celebration for Dadi's life a couple of days ago on the 27th and the day before yesterday. And I know that most of you weren't able to come down for one reason or another, so this special toli that was prepared for Dadi's day  has walked up the mountain to come to you. And so, (applause) after we finish and there's another special surprise. We're going to have meditation in Dadi Janki Park rather than here. Were you aware of that? Things are very fluid in Madhuban. And what I was told, is that it was going to be tomorrow but even at 0930 in the morning it's already too hot to be outside in the park. A small group sitting under the umbrella and the canopy is fine. All of us in the park and it's just too hot. Okay for some - Malaysia. But not so okay for those from other parts of the world. And so the thought is to actually have the meditation in the park this evening. So, once you've had toli you can go along to the park and just find space wherever it's comfortable for you. I'm sure they'll be people there to show you the way. And, then we can have meditation in the cool breeze. I'm assuming there'll be a cool breeze. But if it's a hot breeze that's also okay.

 

Q: And I was also given this little slip of paper that's stating that Jayanti behn, and Mohini behn are the additional chief of the Brahma Kumaris. But of course, you are in our hearts and that's the best place to be. 

A: I mean titles come and go and so really you just have to do what comes in front of you and carry on.

 

Om Shanti
