20121230 – ‘Unless you lose yourself, you cannot find yourself?’ – Part 2 (final)

 

If you think of Baba all the time, you cannot think of yourself. If you don’t think of me, you will remain unmoved. Only when Rano thinks of Nonny does she feel bad. When she doesn’t think of her mother, there is no feeling.

Yet another meditation school has opened in Poona, called […]

20121229 – ‘Unless you lose yourself, you cannot find yourself?’- Part 1

 

On Sunday, September 22nd, Baba asked the women, “Who was it who said, ‘Unless you lose yourself, you cannot find yourself?’ ”

Elizabeth replied, “Christ.”

“What does it mean?” Baba asked.

One woman replied, “To conquer desire.”

Another replied, “To annihilate the lower self.”

Elizabeth answered, “To quote the words of the saint: […]

20121228 – Only Sadguru can alter the course of experience to realize God – part 2 (final)

In fact, there is nothing such as happiness and misery, virtue and vice, or good and bad. Only bliss exists! The experiences of happiness, misery, virtue, vice, good and bad are nothing. But they are the necessary steppingstones on the course to higher things which, though illusory, everyone has to pass through.

Only the […]

20121227 – Only Sadguru can alter the course of experience to Realize God – part 1

Satsang (the company) of these Perfect Ones is the best medium and path to the attainment of bliss.

… Someone asked, “But how can we acquire the desire for the company of saints?”

Baba replied, “By killing all desires except one – longing for real bliss. Thus only by longing for bliss will you […]

20121226 – One must try to live the life that Christ lived

 

Certain Swiss people were invited for interviews or to ask questions before Baba. On July 9th, during his interview, Walter’s brother Oscar asked, “What hinders me from being a better and truer Christian, and so also a better husband and father?”

Baba answered, “You must try, as far as possible, to live the […]

20121224 – Cease the mental tension by training your mind to pass over thoughts

 

 

Cease the mental tension. Train your mind to pass over thoughts. Do not give countenance to them until such time that you can surrender the mind itself. No one is doing it. When the mind is surrendered, there is no question of happiness and unhappiness. Because of the thoughts of the past […]

20121223 – By touching the Perfect Master’s feet, we unburden our sanskaric load

Beloved Baba’s Samadhi, Meherabad

Baba said: “When people come to a Perfect Master and touch his feet with their heads, they lay the burden of their sanskaras on him. A Perfect Master’s feet collect the sanskaras from all over the universe, just as an ordinary person when walking collects dust on […]

20121219 – Proximity and intimacy with Baba brings out sanskaras like sparks

 

 

Continuing, Baba explained, “Another point. As you all become more intimate with me, with opportunities to come closer to me, all that is good and all that is bad within you comes out in sparks, as it were. All the impressions of the past, the accumulation of past sanskaras of all illusory […]

20121217 – Sanskaras linger on after death

… The body drops, but the mind remains. And when the body drops, its impressions immediately manifest, trying to spread themselves and assume a new body. They want expression through the body, and so another body comes into existence which is made up of these impressions.

Thus, with the dropping of every form, […]
