happy birthday mohanji - mohanji's birthday message 12

Celebrate my birthday with abandoned children, children without parents, abused children, old and abandoned people, sick people, etc. Make them happy. Show them that you sincerely care. Their joy is my joy. Give them assurance, strength, support and love. Share what you have, whatever you have in abundance with those who have nothing. Do not discriminate between species. Remember, human species is just one species in this world. Rescue and take care of abandoned animals, if you have the capacity too. All these actions will create positive energy in this world…

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your deep love and affection for me. You are my true wealth. Your love is my inspiration, oxygen and existence. Be happy. Remain love. No other emotions will give you so much power, elevation and purification. I shall never leave your hand. Make sure you will not leave my hand either. Everything that you offer to me is well received. I get it each time, every time. So, be at your place. Chant your favorite mantra with sincere devotion in your mind the whole day. Perform Mohanji aaratis which will purify your internal and external environment. Be more beneficial to the world. My happiness is when the people who love me and I love serve the world unconditionally and see me in every being. I bless you and am with you. Be rest assured.

Bless you with a good life filled with love towards all, and hatred towards none.

Infinite Love
Mohanji”

A Melting Heart

happy birthday mohanji - mohanji's birthday message 7

My Dear Embodiments of Pure Love

 What is worth living for? What is real wealth? What is success? All of us would have had these thoughts at some point in our life.

Modern education teaches us that material success is real success. It tells us that bank balance means security. And, assets means power. Conquests of materials and positions mean success in the world of duality, our waking state world. This is total and complete delusion. These never stay. These never pay. These never last. We came empty handed and naked. We shall leave empty handed and totally naked. But, when will mankind realize this simple truth? Or will they realize it at all?

A  few moments of joy, a few moments of sharing, a few moments of bliss and love is all that we could earn in this life time. Whatever we collect from here are impressions of false pleasures. All things false collapse sooner or later. False becomes colorless in no time like imitation gold. Pure gold always survives time and keeps shining against all odds. We see many scenes as we walk this journey called life. People appear and disappear like butterflies. Everything is momentary and temporary. Nothing stays forever except our age old companion, our SOUL that walks with us every step like our ignored shadow, silent, witnessing and yet inevitable.

I always considered myself as a VVIP in this ocean of existence. Very Very Insignificant Person. The ocean of this layer of existence itself is so vast from the mind of a human being. It’s 7.3 billion people just on earth and still counting, plus numerous other beings visible and invisible. Among all these myriad expressions of life, what is one body with the name of Mohanji worth? How does this form and presence matter to this world? I live with this mindset which helps me stay totally grounded. All are equal and all are significant one way or the other. We should love all and serve all as ourselves. Nothing selfish is worth it. 

Likewise, the birth and death of this form has no further significance than the birth and death of numerous forms each moment. As we speak, many are leaving and many are coming into this realm of duality. Those who are coming are coming here to feel the same things which we all have felt through our lifetimes – agonies and ecstasies of numerous patterns. Everybody born and to be born have experienced these waves of time and lived their life, collecting some pebbles of experiences, memories, and some desires. This is the only earning of everyone born in this world of duality. In short, the subtle seeds of the pending desires is all that we earn and carry when we leave. What else can we take home? What else can we carry with us?

happy birthday mohanji - mohanji's birthday message 8With a melting heart, I write these words. I LOVE YOU. Each and every one of you out there. Thank you for taking time and wishing me, being in my company, loving me so much and praying for me. Above all, serving the helpless in my name. How can I even begin to express my gratitude? I am sure you see my totally melted heart. It is you that made this life worth living. It is nothing but your sincere love that drives this machine called Mohanji. It is your love that urges me and inspires me to do more and more and more. It is all you. I am you. You are my wealth, my health, my expression and compassion. You are myself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you who took time to wish me personally and write those beautiful words which urge the chronic introvert in me to move on with this incarnation further and further. I thank you again for waking me up to this life and walking with me, cherishing my existence, celebrating my birthday as if it is your birthday, which is true as when we met, we took a new birth. We became a new person, a personality. This is what each meaningful encounter does for us. We are reborn each time we connect and grow together. Hence, it is our birthday. Our DAY. The DAY to celebrate the core of ourselves; we as embodiment of compassion, embodiment of kindness, embodiment of supreme consciousness (Parabrahma) and Embodiment of Liberation. We are the walking and talking truth that we have always been searching around us. This moment is a moment to search within. A moment to recognize, feel, understand and connect with the truth that this birthday represents. The re-birth, the re-enactment, the supreme truth beyond all illusions. The real YOU. Hence, we celebrate our birthday and not just my birthday.

Thank you again, to each and every one out there who wished me, connected to me, did selfless services of multiple flavours which touched the lives of many people of different species and to all those who wished me through blogs, Facebook, WhatsApp and every other means. I cannot even begin to name all of you, except locations. When I say locations it is all encompassing – as in Mohanji at those locations or you in me. I am deliberately avoiding names here to avoid confusions and disappointments. Name is part of ego. We remain beyond the realms of ego, I hope.

Mohanji’s Birthday Message – No Flowers, No Sweets

Written on 21st February 2011

On the occasion of Mohanji’s birthday, it is difficult for us to resist the desire to express our deepest appreciation, gratitude and respect for all that he is. He who has given us so much, never asking for anything in return, never showing off with what he has done. If you are wondering what could possibly satisfy, bring pleasure and happiness to Mohanji, then kindly read on.

With love,

Mohanji Team

happy birthday mohanji - mohanji's birthday message 6

Mohanji:

My Beloveds,

I am overwhelmed at the plans that you are making to mark my birthday. I sincerely thank you and appreciate your true love towards me and your many expressions of it. At this juncture, I would like to share with you a few of my thoughts in this regard.

What makes me happy?

The only thing that makes me truly happy, is your sincere expression of kindness towards the poor, sick and hungry people, the hungry and helpless birds and animals; the truly selfless trees and plants. If you consistently and honestly express deep compassion to your fellow beings, I feel genuinely happy. Your overflowing compassion, kindness and unconditional love from your heart towards the helpless, forgotten and ignored beings of the world, makes me feel RICH inside. It makes me proud of you, my dear family members. Nothing else makes me truly happy.

Who Am I?

I am what you make of me. I am fluid. If you think I am good, I am good. If you think I am bad, I am bad. I am formless. I am a non-entity. I have no birth or death. Birthdays are only milestones in my current physical existence, which has a definite duration. I do not attribute any more value to my birthdays. I am what you think I am, because, like water taking the shape of the container that holds it, I take the shape/reflect your mind, your constitution and your consciousness. I reflect you sincerely and truly like a good mirror. My one and only message for mankind is “Tat Twam Asi” (You Are That). Know it, experience it, LIVE IT.

What is celebration for me?

As I have explained, if you express non-violence in your daily life, for me this is celebration. Your spontaneous expression of kindness, compassion and love towards all beings, without discrimination, is celebration for me. If you consistently express love, compassion and kindness to all beings, including nature, it is indeed celebration for me. Then my time on Earth becomes truly worthwhile.

happy birthday mohanji - mohanji's birthday message 3I do not believe in blowing off the flame of candles on cakes, as I believe in bringing light and brightness into the lives of people, or at least remove some amount of  darkness from their minds, if they will allow me to. I always feel it is ironical that we blow out the brightness of candles as part of our celebration (while candles represent complete selflessness – burning themselves while providing light to the world)!!! No cakes attract me. No sweets attract me. No bouquet of flowers attracts me. I love to see flowers in the garden, live in the nature. I look at flowers as the “Bliss of Nature”. I do not like to pluck them from their mother plant. I feel that to be selfishness. I love flowers, especially if they remain in the nature, I like to see birds free and flying and not in cages. I do not like to see any being bound and caged. And, no gifts attract me. What will I do with them?

Remember the Supreme Lord Krishna’s words: “I will be satisfied if you offer me a flower or a leaf. But, remember, they are all mine anyway.” Whatever we offer to the Lord is legitimately His!!! In the realms of unlimited consciousness, everything exists within you. What can you gain? What can you collect? What can you own? Everything is within you. Everything is already yours. So, please do not send me flowers, cakes or sweets. Even without all these expressions, I LOVE YOU and that is not conditional. It will never change too.

What is Communication for me?

Do not spend money on me. Do not spend time for me. I appreciate your time. I appreciate your kindness. The money or time that you will gladly spend for me, may kindly be spent for the poor and the needy of the world. If you are able to do something for the other beings around you, even buy a hot tea for a poor man feeling cold on a winter morning, you have communicated your love for me. This is what I consider to be a true communication of love. I will not be happier, even if you call me or SMS me or e-mail me. I will be happier, when you feed a hungry dog or a bird which represents detachment because it never hoards or stores anything. Clothes to the poor and needy, food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless. This is the communication that I like. This makes me feel happy and rich within. When you do such good deeds, please inspire others also. Let this become a movement. Let this become spontaneous. Let hearts swell with love and compassion. ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’ should melt, wither away, and become ‘Ours’ and “Everybody’s.’ Selflessness should become your very nature.

Furthermore, do not blame me, nor be offended, if I did not take your call. You must know that I LOVE YOU, truly and sincerely in every situation and time. Our love and relationship should not be conditioned or bound by terrestrial gadgets such as phone or internet. Faith should replace all such needs. It is better expressed or communicated through your actions, which happen anyway within my consciousness. You need not tell me anything. Through positive thoughts, words and actions, when you enrich your consciousness, you get closer to the supreme consciousness, which makes us inseparably ONE.

In summary, please do not send me flowers, sweets or cakes. Please refrain from sending me SMS or emails. Use that day, time and money to stay in my consciousness and enjoy the feast of unlimitedness. Feel we are one. Express Compassion, Love and Gratitude towards existence and fellow beings. Exist in Love. Express it fully. Meditate. Shed your skins of conditioning and for once, be yourself. Be your SELF. Express your SELF. Love everything wholeheartedly, without expectations. Love Unconditionally.

Nothing else will make me more happy. I do not need anything else from you. This is my sincere request.

I Love YOU,

M.”

Mohanji’s Guru Purnima Message 2018

mohanji 80

Happy Guru Purnima to all of you.
This is not one day dedicated for the remembrance of your Guru. We should remember guru every moment as a reminder of who and what we actually are.
This day is for you to remember that the true guru is the real you. Your highest truth is your real Guru. Life provides the presence of Guru in your life through various incidents. When incidents are witnessed, when there is a witness, you will feel Guru. When you do not see incidents, instead see only the essence behind all incidents, you dissolve into the Guru. You will realise that you and guru have always been inseparably one. There is essentially no Guru outside of you.

My job is just to take you to yourself. You are the origin (of the journey) and you are the destination. I am just a reminder.

Happy Guru Purnima

With Love
Yours

Mohanji

Mohanji’s Guru Purnima Message 2017

mohanji's guru purnima message 2016 9

Good day to all of you. Happy Guru Purnima.

We spoke last year at the same time, I was conveying a message to you about Guru Purnima and a few other things as well. Today when I am sitting here, talking to you, I am remembering a story.

A young child was sitting with his grandfather. He asked the grandfather, “Are you going to be with me for long?“ Grandfather said, “You know, I’m very old, I could leave any day.“

Then the grandchild asked, “What would you like to have before you leave?“

He said, “Just peace. Nothing else.“

The child asked, “You don’t want anything else? Only peace? Where do you get it from?“

Then grandfather said, “You cannot buy that. You can’t get it from outside. It’s something inside.“

Every being on earth has only one aim – to live in peace.

200524674-001

We should always remember this. No amount of wealth, no amount of relationships, nothing that money can buy or money cannot buy, can guarantee peace. Peace is an attitude which you cultivate when you accept yourself and accept the environment around yourself 100%. You know that this is given, you are happy about it, you are contented, you are peaceful.

You can see this in the absolute reality in the animal kingdom. Imagine a lion is hungry. It expresses hunger. It hunts an animal. Then all the family members come together and they feed on the animal. Once they filled their bellies, they just disperse for a week or more. They do not even attempt to kill another animal. They just have their food, they take easy, the rest of the days are ok.

Human beings, because we are thinking too much, are always anxious about something which is probably going to happen in days ahead or in the future. But have you ever thought, whatever has already happened, until whichever age you have lived, did you have any real control over it? Did you believe that YOU chose those incidents, those places, those situations, those people, those experiences? Did you actually choose? It’s important to think. This is very important thing to remember that most of the things in life happened at a particular time, at a particular place, with a particular group of people and we just carry the memories of it. The incident is over. You cannot do anything about it. It’s done. You carry the memories of it. You keep some by remembering them every day or whenever possible, you discard some believing they are not worth it, but we mostly remembrance of sadness. This affects our life. When we keep the remembrance of sadness, it breeds more sadness. When we maintain remembrance of betrayals, it brings forth more betrayals. When we maintain remembrance of separation, it provokes more separation. This is the way life works. What you remember stays with you.  What you do not remember has gone with the past. It’s important to leave the past behind. You cannot carry it forward anyway. There is nothing to carry forward. Life is all about experiences. Every moment, every time, every day, in every situation, we are just experiencing our incarnation on earth. We are not doing anything else on this world. What else are we doing? There is nothing else. We are just experiencing this incarnation in multiple facets – different places, different people, different situations. All the time we are experiencing our incarnation in various dimensions. So as we are experiencing this incarnation, memories are bound to happen because experience leaves memories. Experiences have residue and residue is called memories. The more memories you store, they become impressions and the more impressions you have, they provoke a new existence, a new karma. So it’s important to understand that everything we experience must be left with the time, not in the mind. There is a way we connect to people, situations, times and places. Most of the time our connection is with the mind. When you connect with anybody with your mind, it’s always temporary. Just watch. But the moment you connect with somebody from your heart, without an agenda (heart doesn’t have an agenda, when I say heart it’s the center of your chest, we call it anahata or a spiritual heart whatever you want to call it), you have no prejudices, you have no differences, you are unconditional. One of the signs or examples of connection with the heart is between a mother and a child. The mother connects with her child without prejudices, without discrimination, without conditions and that’s a pure connection. Similarly, from a guru to a disciple, a true guru, one who is connected to a source, always connects with his disciples, his followers from the heart, which means he does not discriminate, he has no prejudices, he loves, just loves. What kind of love? Unconditional love, without any expectation. One of the highest and the noblest relationships is between a guru and a disciple. But a disciple often connects to a guru with the mind. There is a big difference here. The moment you connect to somebody with the mind, there are always possibilities of prejudices, doubts, anger, hatred, jealousy, separation, alienation, all sorts of stuff. Everything is possible with the mind because mind is like that. Nature of mind is like that. Mind always represents duality – here and there, up and down, good and bad. Mind represents relative truth or Maya, so when mind represents relative truth, our connection also represents relative truth. So when you are connecting to a master with the mind, you are connecting in relative terms – me and him. When the connection is with the mind, the chances for merger, unification of consciousness is very difficult. Why? Because mind never allows unification. It always maintains separation.

Food for thought: are you connecting to your master with your mind or with your heart? If you are connecting with your master with your heart, I guarantee you, you will never have separation in this existence and beyond. Instead, if you are connecting to the master with your mind, please remember, sooner or later, doubts will sprout, doubts can become confusion, confusion can become alienation, alienation can become separation. This is truth. So whenever you are connecting to your mother or you are connecting to your master, connecting to earth, beings outside, always connect with your heart. Even if there are bad experiences, because you connected from the heart, still, your level of purity will remain the same. Nobody can touch your purity. Furthermore, there is no expectation. This is a beautiful situation. You have no expectation from anybody, so whether you get love or hatred it is the same for you. You accept everything. Also, nobody can walk over you because they cannot do anything to you. You are so immune, so powerful.

So if a master is available in your life, connect to your master with your heart and never be separate. As a benchmark, always understand, when your connection is from the mind, how do you know it is from the mind? Your doubts are sprouting. This is one of the signs. Whether alienation is happening, whether separation is being felt. While the truth is not separation. You can never be separate from the true guru. But you are feeling separation. Why are you feeling separation? Because you are connecting with your mind, not with your heart. If you are actually connecting with your heart, you will not feel separation. that all idea itself will not come in your mind. This is so beautiful.

Likewise, there are certain things connected to your body, but we entertain them in our mind. For example, food. Why do we eat food? Because we maintain a food sheath i.e. the body. We maintain the body because we have to maintain an incarnation. We will maintain this incarnation as long as we have karma associated with this incarnation. We eat food to keep this incarnation, this body, alive. We eat as much as it takes to maintain this incarnation, no more nor less.

The same with sexuality. Sexuality is a thing of the body. Now food and sexuality. These two things are very prominent or predominant in everybody’s life. Where does the problem happen? When the food is a thing of the mind, we have a problem. If it is a thing of the body, we will eat as much as it takes. The same with sexuality. It is created and maintained for the species to continue. That is the original cause. Now, when sexuality becomes a thing in the  mind, it’s a burden. Mind is fluctuating. Mind is affected.

Keep your aspect of food and aspect of sexuality to your body, your mind is free from it. Think about it. This is something you must remember. Whenever you feel suffocated, embarrassed, confused or any kind of emotion which is not giving us a good feeling, this only means your mind has taken over something which is not mind’s own. Especially… we don’t need to think too much about food because the scriptures say,“The food that came to you is the medicine for you.“ That means, if you have an incarnation, if there is a need to maintain an incarnation for a period of time, food will come to your table one way or the other or you will have the source to get the food. So there is no need to be anxious about it. Likewise, if you are constantly preoccupied with your sexuality, same effect. Mind is confused, clogged and sometimes it leads to anger, frustration, all sorts of stuff.

So whatever belongs to your body, keep it with your body. Whatever belongs to your mind, let it be with your mind. What is the primary purpose of your mind? To be with the senses so that you can experience the life. Simple. Mind with your nose makes you smell. Mind with your eyes makes you see. Mind with your ears makes you hear. Mind’s yob is experience. Keep it that way. When you keep it that way, you are free. So relationships with the heart. Unconditional. What is supposed to be with the body, keep it with the body, not with the mind. Don’t transfer things. Don’t be preoccupied with the things which are connected to the body.

When the mind is clean it is easy to move to the states of samadhi. States of samadhi are states where the mind is still. These are states of meditation, states of stillness. It’s easy to move to those states when you are not borrowing or adopting things which are not the mind, the mind is not borrowing or adopting things which do not belong to the mind, you are free. So this is a sure step towards liberation. As we walk the path to liberation, keep the things with its own kind. Let the things of body be with the body, let the things of mind be with the mind, let the things of intellect be with the intellect, let the things of  personality be with ego. This is all fine. Everything should remain where it should be. If it is migrated, there is pain, there is confusion. I’m having something in my house which I don’t like or which is alien to me. Imagine there are two snakes in the house. Will you be able to be comfortable? Will you be able to stay free there? You will do everything possible to get rid of them. Then only you feel nice. Similarly, we borrow lots of snakes from outside and keep them in the room which is our mind and then you are suffering. You don’t know what you are doing. Remember. This is important to understand.

So in this Guru Purnima, like I said last year, I would like you to be real. Start recognising yourself. start understanding yourself. Spend time with yourself. You must spend time with yourself. It’s easy to spend time with other people. It’s easy because we are used to it. We talk nonsense, we talk something just to entertain the mind, to entertain people’s minds. Like that it goes. But at the end of the day, you gain nothing. You just made some noises. Beyond those you must now start to spend time with yourself in silence, without agenda, without asking questions, without even thinking, just be. You deserve it. You must spend time with yourself. When is the last time you have spent with yourself? It’s not important for you to spend time with Mohanji. But it’s very, very important to spend time with yourself. Mohanji’s job is to guide you to yourself, so you must spend time with yourself. Explore yourself understand yourself. Bring forth your fears, throw them out. Ask your mind,“Why have you kept those snakes inside?“ Why has mind stored these things? Most are habits, some are compulsive habits, some are residues of memories, one way or the other, we are victims of something. We shouldn’t be. We should be free. We deserve freedom, and to be free we must be thoughtless. To be thoughtless, there should be less impressions. To have less impressions, we should have less memories. If you want less memories, you should leave a thing of the past with the past. Keep the past with the past. Don’t carry it forward. You don’t need those memories. Whatever happened in the past has finished. You cannot do anything about it. It’s over. It’s done with. Now it you are still carrying the past,“Oh, this guy did that to me, this guy didn’t pay…“ whatever. If you still carry the weight of the past, YOU are suffering, not the others. You are suffering. Is it worth it? In this Guru Purnima, this is the only thought I would like you to have. What is life worth?

Find your answers.

I have always loved you, I am always with most of you, I never leave your hand, I will never, ever leave your hand. This is for sure. Try not to leave my hand, too if you can, for which you have to connect to me with your heart – no judgement, no prejudices, no alienation, no separation. We are one, we are one  consciousness. We have met in this life because of past life karmas, otherwise we will not meet. Since we have met, with whatever intensity, in whichever level, whichever position, and whatever our relationships are in this life, accept it. That’s it. There is nothing to reject, nothing to prevent. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to think. Why? Because the more you resist, the more you think, the more you confuse yourself, there is always more alienation, the heart loses itself, or heart releases it, mind takes it over, then it’s a relationship between the minds. That’s not a relationship. That’s a relative relationship. True relationship has no relativity. It has continuation through lifetimes. Relative relationships are very temporary, some fascination, some infatuation, some time, some space, that’s it. But our relationship is not that. Because we have met with this kind of intensity and feeling, that means the root is deep. Because the root is deep, we are supposed to be together as long as we are alive. For what? Elevation of awareness – liberation. Completion, fulfilment, liberation. Remember these words. Completion of everything that we are supposed to do in this incarnation, fulfilment is a by-product of completion, liberation is the ultimate end. Remember this, I love you, I am with you and I am always reachable – you think about me, I am with you. I really, really, love you. Thank you.

Mohanji’s Guru Purnima Message 2016

1933349_1041971409193929_7791237153069862724_o

Dear Embodiments of Love,

Namaste!

On this auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima, we meet once again and discuss the year ahead. Last year, we spoke a lot pertaining to our life, our existence, and living our life in a holistic way. This year, we look for or look at how to be “you” in a situation or in a variety of things in life. There are lots and lots of different emotions running around in life,

Acceptance

This year, I traveled a lot and met a lot of people. Most of the people came with four different or four main aspects (or a combination of them) which were bothering them – relationships, job, children, and, of course, confusions regarding spirituality. I think that this is mostly pertaining to something outside of you. I was telling a lot of people, why are you looking outside so much? Why don’t you look within? If you spend less time looking outside and more time looking inside, I think you have all the solutions within you. You do not need any Guru to tell you how your relationship should be, how your job should be, how you should take care of your children, how you should take care of society, how you should move around in the world outside; because everything depends on how you can move within your own world, which is inside you. You must learn to move within your own world and if you learn that, if you are fully satisfied and occupied with that, the outside world does not matter. You will be very fluent in the outside world.

mohanji's guru purnima message 2016 2

 

 

When we start comparing ourselves with other things, when we have too many expectations with life or with people, with relationships, then there is bound to be sorrow. We blame other people for our problems. It is not other people but how we are that makes other people respond to us in that way and decides what we create in life? The realities that we create in life start from us. How we see the world outside, how we see people, how we interact with people, how we love people, how we expect from people, what you expect from people, etc. They are all karmic beings. All the birds, animals, trees, wind, sun – everything is working on the basis of dharma (duty) and karma (the inevitable lifeline of existence). When you are clear and when you are aware that this is all happening in their symmetry, in their constitution and the way it should be, you look within and see why you cannot agree with it, why there is no acceptance. If we cannot accept ourselves, we cannot accept anybody.

The fundamental question is — have we accepted ourselves? Do you like yourself or do you love yourself? When did you hug yourself the last time or when did you look at yourself the last time? Everything you want in life sits within you. Our abundance, our happiness, our sorrows, our life outside or life inside – it is all here, with us, within us. If you are clear and if you are aware that this is how the whole of life is working, spirituality blossoms inside by itself. Spirituality is not something which you can gain from outside. You can only gain information from outside, gain guidance from outside. What happens in your life happens from inside, whether it is spirituality, whether it is relationships, whether it is agreement, disagreement or whatever else in life, this is your creation. You created your existence. Without your existence, there is no life outside for you. You have to have your body, your mind, your intellect.

 

Now, why is the mind occupying more space than anything else? That is the question you should ask yourself. Why is my mind so judgmental, why do I compare? Why do I feel so many things so intensely? What makes those emotions come to me? What made those people come to me? There is something within us which we attract or which attracted all these things. So, this is one fundamental thing that we must be aware of. Accept yourself; clearly, firmly, lovingly, accept yourself. Then you accept the world outside and even if you accept the world or reject the world, the world will be the same. It is your mental constitution or satisfaction, or your feeling that, “Oh, because I rejected it, it has gone away.” That is just an illusion. Nothing has gone away. The sun is still rising, the stars are still shining. Whether we are alive or not, it will continue.

So what can you give to the world? What have you given to the world? The minimum that you can give to the world — when you wake up in the morning, be fresh, take a bath, chant or do meditation, and then go and smile at the world. You can give a good smile to the world and the world will feel better, or you will feel that the world is better. Likewise, you have hands. Help unconditionally. Do not expect anything, just help. Then the world is a better place. You have your legs. Walk for others’ purpose. Walk selflessly. Walk for others’ peace. You have your heart, let it beat for serving other people. Service is purification. When you serve somebody unconditionally without expectation, it purifies you. It makes you more eligible for higher frequency, higher awareness. World is all about energy, frequency, matter as well as energy that makes the matter (which is energy conglomerated) – energy and frequency. So the higher frequency you attain, the more you are able to balance your life. Life is about balancing. What are you balancing in life? You are balancing your constitution, your character, your body, your mind and your intellect. You are balancing everything so that you can experience life without any obstruction. It is a flow. You are flowing.

 

Service With the Right Attitude – The Attitude of Serving Yourself

Now having spoken about acceptance, having said what you can give to the world —the fundamental thing being charity or service. I will not even use the word charity because “charity” has sometimes become a not so appealing word. Why has it become like that? Mainly because whenever we talk about charity, there is a giver and a taker. When you think about charity, there should be no giver, no taker, because everything is you. Like you have your hands, legs, and feet, every organ of action and every organ of perception in your system, all beings outside are also part of your system. You may not feel some of them as a part of your system, but they are like the tree and the plants and the earth and the wind and the moon and the sun; everything is connected to you in various frequencies.

So when you serve somebody, you  are serving yourself. Please be aware of it. Think about it. Contemplate on it. You are not doing anything for the sake of another. You are doing it for the sake of yourself. You can only do anything for the sake of yourself. If you feel that you are doing it for other people, understand there is ignorance inside.You do no favor to anybody else. Actually, you are doing yourself a favor, if it is a favor. Otherwise, you are doing only what you like to do so that you feel happy. When you serve the people, let it be with this attitude. You are happy, you are feeling great, you are feeling richer because you share. Whenever we share something, it grows inside us and it removes the blocks. Like you serve food, an abundance of food happens in your life. When you serve something wholeheartedly —time, space, love, whatever you have — it brings more and more of that stuff into your life. You are experiencing abundance because you are sharing it.

When you hold it, you become like the Dead Sea. The river brings water to the Dead Sea but it creates nothing out of the Dead Sea. Many people are like that – barren land. There are so many things coming to them, but they give nothing back to earth. They live and they die. The world has nothing to do with them. Perhaps they had a lot to do with the world, but the world gained nothing from them. Do we want to live such an existence? What are we here for? Every moment can be of service. We can help somebody. You cannot satisfy everybody. Do not try to satisfy people, but serving as per your capacity is definitely your call. You can do that.

Comparison – Stop Comparing

The universe has worked hard to create a unique being and you want to be like somebody else. Impossible! The universe has programmed itself to create every being unique. All individuals are unique. Everybody is unique. That is the beauty of creation. Now if you choose to compare yourself with another, that is non-understanding. You cannot be somebody else. Somebody else is somebody else. They have their weaknesses and strengths. Remember – nobody is perfectly strong, nobody is perfectly weak. Everybody is a mixture. So accept everybody outside as themselves and do not try to be them. Try to add value to them by your existence. So every moment when you walk in the street or when you are living your life, try to add value to the world outside. So in that way, every moment is worthwhile and that makes you richer inside and abundance will flow into you. So accept the world outside. Do not compare. This is the third point.

mohanji's guru purnima message 2016 8

 

 

Spirituality

The fourth point I would like to talk about is spirituality. I do not understand why we chase spirituality. Spirituality is your relationship with your spirit, with your soul. Soul is inside. What are we looking for outside? You can only look for something perishable outside. Whatever you take from outside, you can keep it only for some time. You cannot keep it forever. Whatever you take from outside, it will stay with you as long as it has to. Nothing will stay forever, including the body which you have taken from outside. It will stay only as long as your karma allows it to stay. With this awareness think about what we are chasing from outside, what we are gaining from outside?

From a Guru, from a book, from a path, all you gain is guidance. Take the guidance, be respectful, be grateful, and connect yourself more and more with your spirit, with your soul. That is spirituality. Do not complicate it. Do not try to do something else. Activity sometimes satisfies you, but the lack of activity depresses you as well. So action has a problem. You will have to be continuously in the action mode. If you are not in the action mode, the moment in time when you move to the inaction mode, it depresses you. There should be a balance. Whether it is action or inaction you are peaceful. If that is the case, you must be married to your soul. That is the permanent marriage you can think about. That is forever, and when I say you, I mean you as the projected personality. This projected personality should be married to the projector, the soul. Once you are connected fully, integrally into the soul, you have no worries, no anxieties, no sorrows, no happiness. You are perfectly in a bliss state, you are peaceful, you are happy.

mohanji's guru purnima message 2016 6

Everything is inside. All things are inside, and whatever you thought is outside is a part of you, like the extension of your organs of action and perception. They were all there, they are all part of you, they have always been there. This is one point you must remember. Spirituality is your marriage with your spirit. You are already married. Right from birth till death, you will be married. All the outside relationships and marriages are temporary. They have come for a particular time and for a particular reason and they will depart, some with pain, some with happiness, but both have to happen. When something comes, it has to go. Nothing stays forever.

That is why various Masters have repeatedly said that the moment you stop seeking, you have it. You have really found it. You have to stop seeking. Why are we to stop seeking? Because we are mostly seeking outside. We are looking at things outside of us. And when we stop seeking that, you slowly withdraw. Your senses are withdrawn, your mind is withdrawn, everything merges with you and then you start feeling your subtlety. You can use breath for that. Breathe in, breathe out, be with the breath, go within and stay with the breath. The mind will push you to go outside. Allow the mind to do that. Do not worry. Again you come back. So, do not fight too much with the mind and get tired because you cannot win your mind. You have to allow the mind to be itself so that it does not bother you and then you connect to your breath, connect to your heartbeat, connect to every cell of yours. If there are 600 trillion cells in your body, become every cell and feel the cell. Feel your body, feel your organs. When you keep on feeling you will stop looking and start living.

 

Life is about how you feel or how you can feel, what your capacity to feel is. First and fundamental is feeling yourself, feeling your breath, feeling your heart beat, feeling everything, and then you feel the whole universe. You will only feel, you will not see. Whatever you see outside is you. It is your extension. There are no people, there are no trees, no plants. Everything is you. There is nothing to search for, nothing to collect, to conquer, to occupy. There is nothing. You are just you. You are free and you have been free. You become so easy and transparent like a flowing river and you will know that this is exactly what it should be, how it should be. Hundred percent freedom occupies you, freedom becomes you, and then you become freedom. This is real freedom. If you want even one thing from this world outside, you are a slave of that wish, you are a slave of that desire. When you have one desire, you are occupied, your mind is occupied, your mind is thriving.

mohanji's guru purnima message 2016

When you have no desire, you do not need the mind. Mind is dissolved. Consciousness takes over and this consciousness will overwhelm you and by “overwhelm” we mean not in a kind of doing mode or action mode. Overwhelm means you will become completely in a state of bliss, where you will only radiate bliss. When you come to some place, you will be like a magnet because you are only radiating bliss, you are radiating love. There are no demands, there are no expectations, there are no wants. You will not harm anybody because you cannot. There is nothing outside of you. How can you harm your own hand or own leg? Just like that you cannot harm anybody else. You will not hurt anybody. Because there is nothing to hurt, nothing called hurt. Hurt happens only in the ego or mind. There is no ego or mind to get hurt. So you will be happy, you will be flowing. Whatever you say will be for the good purpose.

Remember, if you display anger because your intention is good, then that anger is good. If you display anger out of hatred, it is bad because you have created poison inside. It is coming out of the poison which is inside you. If you are angry because you love the person and you want the person to be nice and good, or to do better in life, that anger is good, just like a mother’s anger or display of anger to the child who is sick. The mother will say, “If you do not have the medicine, I will beat you”. The mother does not mean to beat the child, but she is concerned that if the child does not take medicine, there will be a problem. So the mother will speak with a particular intensity so that the child understands and the child gets cured. Likewise, a Guru, or a true friend or a guide may scold somebody because they are concerned about a person. They know something is wrong and they want to help. That is okay. Even if you use sharp words or be rude to another person because you love them, this is okay. They may not understand you, but you are right and eventually they will understand you. That is why sometimes the best medicine is bitter, and it is required because the cure is important.

Having said that, I do not want to elaborate any further. I think I have given you sufficient guidelines for the next year. The next year should be a year of bliss. Stop worrying about other people. Start connecting to yourself. Settle down in yourself. Do not look outside. It is not worth it. When you are settled within yourself, even if you look outside, you will be still inside. That is okay, because you are settled inside. Use the rest of the year to settle down inside yourself properly, for which you need to feel yourself, you need to hug yourself, you need to love yourself, you need to listen to yourself, remember yourself. Instead of trying to prove repeatedly to the world outside, suffer in the bargain and always chase something, always have conflict in relationships and suffering, you start accepting. When you actually accept yourself and see other people as extensions of yourself, there will be no suffering, there cannot be suffering. You do not have suffering if there is no comparison, no expectation, no anger, no hatred, no jealousy. If there is nothing like that, there is no suffering. You are free. That is how it should be. I wish you that and I love you and I am always with you.

Thank you for tolerating me this year, all these days, I have been with all of you for a long time and some of you have been with me for a number of days, number of weeks, months. I thank you for all what you have done to help me to serve the world. I really love it and I really appreciate it. If I have not thanked you in person for all that you have done in the last one year, I would like to thank you now. Thank you for all that you have done to smoothen my journey or the mission which I am doing. I do not believe that I have done much in this last one year. I wish I could have done more, but of course, we have our capacity limitations, locations, problems. You understand I could not reach many of you. I know some of you tried to reach me but we could not meet. But remember in Consciousness we have already met, we are always meeting. So please understand and try to connect to the Consciousness. If I have not replied to your mails, your messages, it is not out of any discrimination. It is just because I could not handle it or I could not help it. Now, we will continue to meet for the rest of this year until next year and let us all unite beyond all barriers of mind, ego, intellect. Let us unite and do whatever we can for the world, which is yourself, and let us all be rich inside. Outside richness has very limited value because it can come and go. So we cannot say that it can be there forever. But inner richness stay with us and that is worth nurturing. Let us do that.

I love you and wish you a great Guru Purnima and always and always, I am with you.

Love you,

M
