Meditation and the Inner Being

Now we all have realized by this time, that within us lies the peace, the beauty, the glory of our being. There’s an ocean of all that. We cannot seek it outside, we have to go within, what they call in the meditative state, you seek it, you enjoy it. Like when you are thirsty, you go to a river or you go to a ocean, and try to quench your thirst. But even the ocean cannot give you sweet water. So how can anything that is spread outside give you that deep thing that is within you? You are trying to find it outside, where it does not lie. It is within us, absolutely with in us. It is so simple because it is your own; it is within your reach, just there. What ever you have been doing, going out to find the joy, the so called joy, the so called happiness, the so called glory of worldly powers and worldly possessions, you have to reverse it back the whole thing. You have to project within yourself. It was not wrong that you went out, it was not correct that you went out, shouldn’t feel sorry for what you have done so far. It was not the correct way to get to the real joy of life, the real glory of your being. It has worked in so many people, that you have entered into that subtler understanding. Some people are only at a mental level maybe, doesn’t matter. Maybe, some are only at a physical level that they can feel it, doesn’t matter. But, you are on the correct lines, you are moving correctly.

Try to meditate, meditate more so that you reach your inner being. And this inner being, is the vast ocean of bliss, which exists in every one of us. Is that vast glorifying flood of light that floods everybody’s inner beauty. So to approach it, you have to go within yourself by denying things, which are against it, against your movement. Sometimes the wind can be very, very strong for you to misunderstand that the glory of God is within. The turn back: every moment remember that your movement has to be inward. When you move inward you forget the ideas of your outer glories. ...

It’s an individual journey towards God when you meditate, and when you reach there then you become collective. Before that, it’s an absolute individual journey within, absolutely individual journey. You should be able to see this. You are in this journey nobody is your relation, nobody is your brother, nobody is your friend, you’re absolutely alone, absolutely alone. You have to move alone within yourself. Don’t hate anyone, don’t be responsible, but in meditative mood you’re alone. No one exists there, you alone, and once you enter into that ocean then the whole world becomes your family. The whole world is your own manifestation. All the children become your children and you treat all people with equal understanding. The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside your Spirit and see, starting through the eyes of the Spirit. Such calm, such peace, such bliss exists within you. You have to be ready for that journey.

That journey is alone in your meditativeness and the more you find something in your meditation the more you want to go and distribute it to others. That has to, if that does not come into you, then it has not worked out. There is no purity, there’s some sort of a bias. In that individual pursuit, what ever you find, you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of a person who has been really meditating. The one who is meditative and has not been able to distribute what he has found, is cheating himself and cheating others as well. Because that joy that you receive in your meditation has to be distributed, has to be given, has to be shown. It should flow in your being as a light radiates from every illumined lamp. We don’t have to take a vow to say this is an enlightened light, in the same way, a saint should not be certified that he is a saint. The depth you achieve within yourself spreads all over, it is such an action and reaction. The more deeper you become the radiation is much more. A simple person, very ordinary person, uneducated person, can be like that. ...

Unless and until you become deeper we cannot save other Sahaja Yogis and we cannot save those who are not Sahaja Yogis. You have to rise higher and higher to pull the whole curtain up. Those who try to rise higher pull the whole thing upward and they give a pull to everyone who ascend with them. So just try to keep your aim clear cut. Must understand what is your aim in life as Sahaja Yogis. Now you are changed people. You are no more people who have to deal with possessions or worry about them, about mundane things, about your livelihoods. You are no more people who have to worry too much about your health and things or your personal lives. You are not also about your jobs so much, that’s not important and last of all not to worry about your family, children, husband, wife and find a pocket for you to hide into it. Because the only thing where you can really hide yourself is the love of God, where you can really get the great restful, blissful, feeling of his complete protection.

Sydney has done very well before and it’s progressing better, but the pace is not as it should be. So we have to think of new ways and methods how we can spread this. But first you must assume your positions as you are. You must assume that you are all saints that you have to do great work - not the ego part of it, but the manifestation of it. Every one of you has to decide for oneself. I’m sure it’s going to work out, and this time my visit is going to help you a lot by understanding what is the best to spread this light all over.

May God bless you.
