Today on this day of Diwali, I would say that you enlighten yourself with thoughtless awareness. It is not difficult. It’s within you because thoughts are coming from this side and that side and they are not the waves of your brain - no, just your own reactions. But in case you meditate in the real sense of the word, then you’ll get into that thoughtless awareness, which is a very important point and all these nonsensical thoughts, which are of no use to you, will disappear. They won’t be there and then your growth is possible and you’ll grow very well.
Many people are here who will say, “Mother, we don’t get that state” - try. Try that. I don’t believe you cannot get it. All of you can get that thought that, “I can get it!” and you will get it. In that, you don’t have to discard anything, you don’t have to see anything, just go into meditation and you will be amazed how it will work. Of course, you are very much there, most of you, but still, I would say, increase that thoughtless awareness, that area.
Today is very important because of this day of Diwali. Diwali is supposed to be enlightenment day, but enlightenment within is how much you are in thoughtless awareness and everything works out because you are the ocean of it. You have it within yourself. Only you have to tap it. If you don’t tap it, then it doesn’t work out. You have to just tap it and you will be amazed that you are a source of such joy, source of such happiness. I should say a source of real enlightenment.
So today’s message is that, while meditating, go into thoughtless awareness. No thought is important because it’s your own creation. But if you have to become with the Divine creation, you have to get to that state of thoughtless awareness, minimum of minimum. Once that comes to you gradually it will grow and you will be amazed how you’ll be able to grow into Sahaja Yoga in a very big way.
Thank you very much.
