……As I said, you don’t have to crucify yourself. You don’t have to give up anything. You don’t have to live like Christ had to live or be born in the manger. All that’s done for you already. Now, come along.But if you are coming in the darbar (royal court) of the Divine, then be worth it. You should be worth it and you’ll be surprised, all your problems will be solved, your self-respect will be maintained.
So many things have happened like that, but if you have no self-respect, you don’t respect your realisation, you are not deeply involved as to your own ascent and the help to others, it will not work out. I’m here to tell you all these things which Christ could not tell and to fulfill what He wanted to say. All those things I am saying to you – it has already worked, you all have got realisation. But develop respect for yourself, as Sahaja Yogis.*. Don’t have funny ideas about yourself; just know you are a Sahaja Yogi and a Sahaja Yogini. That’s what is needed for a person if he is today celebrating the birth of Christ. He came on this Earth, who was actually Christ full of innocence who was the One who came as the embodiment of Shri Ganesha. I have given the proof of it to you how the carbon atom looks like and by which I have proved that Christ is the Alpha and Omega, while He is made out of Omkara and Swastika.
All this we have experimented. We have found it. It’s there. With all this, what is the greatest achievement is to respect your innocence. Respect your innocence.This is what is to be asked for today. Be innocent. And God looks after all the innocent people……
May God bless you all.
