………..So, deception; Deceiving yourself is not going to help. Best thing is to face yourself and understand what wrong you have been doing. If it works out, I tell you, so many Sahaja Yogis you are sitting here. If you correct yourself and become that, I am sure all the problems – political, economic, and all stupid problems we have – will be finished. But today it’s such a mixture, due to Kali Yuga, that even the worst people are carrying on.
Now, we have a responsibility to save this world. We have a responsibility to create a great, honorable life, which is not superficial, which is not just to show off. But inside it should develop so that this light of your spirit spreads and enlightens this world. It’s very important to understand all these troubles and these, I should say, diseases, psychosomatic diseases, and all other problems which are, in a collective way we can call, of the Kali Yuga like political, economic, all these problems – only are created by human beings. They are not created by the Divine Force. But Divine Force tries to neutralize them if there are many Sahaja Yogis who are practicing Sahaja Yoga in the real sense of the word. If that could be done, if that could be achieved, then I think we can do a lot, a lot for the betterment of humanity, and that’s why we have got realization. It’s not only for yourself, it’s not only for your family, it’s not only for your city or country, but for the whole world Sahaja Yoga is going to work out.
Now, if you have to do competition, you must only do competition in your ascent and in nothing else. But people are so superficial that they think by showing off or by becoming something – a big Johnny – they will achieve something of a very great level: is not so. It has to be a very humble attitude towards yourself also, so that you understand that whatever you are doing is for the betterment of global problems. Absolutely we can solve because you are the channels of the Divine. If I could do it alone, I would have done it. But I can’t, so that’s why I had to gather you all and to tell you that you become all the channels. But in the meanwhile, you enjoy. You enjoy life. Every second becomes a joy, which is also the gift of Shiva. Shiva is the one who creates this great admiration and great appreciation of every moment, everything that is there. And that is the state we have to achieve, by not condemning yourself, or not by pampering your ego, but by seeing what you are. That’s the main thing one has to see – what problem you have, and what is troubling you is yourself only. If you could just come to that point of understanding, I am sure, I am very, very sure that you will be such an asset to help to make this world look at itself and change. Because superficially you cannot change such deep rooted problems. And, you are being so blessed by Kundalini* that you can really become a great torch, I should say, torch on the path of truth, love and joy.
May God bless you.
