Mohanji’s New Year Message for 2019

Hello friends,

I wish you all a very, very happy New Year with  great success, happiness, peace, unconditional love and all the good things which make life better. I wish you everything that is beautiful. I wish you all things that will help you to have contentment. Contentment is all that we need in everyday existence. 2018 was a mixed bag – we had lots of happiness, lots of sorrows,  many different flavours.  We have seen displacements and anarchy  in the world; we have  seen quite a lot of things in the world and  SUCCESS  lies in accepting situations and people  and doing our bit in transforming them  for the better.

Mohanji quote - New Year message 0

I wish you great success in doing that in 2019 wherever you are, whatever you do. If we ADD VALUE to the society, we have value in this life. In this whole life it’s all about how much we can give, it’s not how much we can take. Please understand taking is an illusion. We take nothing from here. We came here  empty handed and we go back from here empty handed. All the materials you see here, all the relationships, all the things we have, positions and possessions are all temporary. They are all gratifications. So if you really understand that all that we are doing is only for the sake of EXPERIENCES, gratifications, we will not have ownership. If we do not have ownership, we have peace of mind. Ownerships are making us heavy and it’s difficult to live with possessiveness; our possessions are binding us.

Mohanji quote - New Year message 1

I wish you a great success in 2019 especially because if you are able to share whatever you have, be it kindness, love, compassion, time, knowledge, skills, money; it doesn’t matter what it is, if you are able to share unconditionally all the materials which life has given you, with all those who do not have them, then your life will become a LEGACY. The success rate which we can measure in a lifetime is how much you are able to give. To leave a legacy, you must share what you have, what has been gifted or delivered to you. This is exactly what we live for. If you only concentrate on giving and sharing whatever you have with the world, then you will always have a great, peaceful existence. I wish you RICHNESS OF HEART. When you are able to give, you are rich. When you are only asking, complaining, looking for more and more accumulation, then you are nothing better than the state of a beggar, where you need many things from earth.

Mohanji quote - New Year message 2

The entire world is our playground. We can live and walk here, we can experience this place or travel to countries, we can meet people… They are all experiences. There is nothing else, just EXPERIENCES. Every situation is an experience. Every aspect of life is about experiences. These are all contributing to experiences. Thus, while we live with full awareness that nothing stays forever, everything is coming, providing experiences and dissolving, just like we do. If you take the next 100 years, we will not be living on earth in this incarnation.  This incarnation would have dissolved. There is nothing great about this. We have seen many incarnations before, some of who we remember. We don’t remember many – even our own ancestors. We don’t know them, we haven’t seen them, we haven’t seen even their pictures, yet we know that they existed at one point in time because we exist. Just like that, all the things that you have collected, accumulated, experienced in this life, are just experiences. You are expressing your highest. Let that highest be compassion, kindness, unconditional love, selflessness, sharing and caring. Let that be your highest expressions on earth so that you have no regrets. You will live peacefully, you will exist peacefully, you will have a great life and you will also have glory.

Mohanji quote - New Year message 3

I wish you great glory in 2019. Let’s walk together, we will do whatever we can together and we will express our highest human possibility which is kindness, compassion, unconditional love, sharing, caring, selflessness. Let us keep on expressing without expectation. When you expect from others, you are also asking for disappointments. If expectations are not met, the result is disappointment. Therefore we must do whatever it takes to deliver without expecting. That will be our strength. If your expectation levels are very low, then you have a great feeling of contentment. The more contentment you have in your life, the more successful you are. You have glory.

This is my message for 2019, I wish you a great success. I am always with you. I am walking with you and I will continue to walk with you as long as you are able to walk. Just keep walking. Do not procrastinate, do not waste your time, your life. Everything is moving, so it’s like that belt at the airport where people walk. The time is taking you forward whether you like it or not. Therefore do not stand and procrastinate. Don’t think that you can do it at some other day. It’s not possible. Life is happening right now. While you are walking this path I will ensure you do not fall. I am holding your hand, I am walking with you, I am always with you. And I need nothing from you. I am just loving you as yourself, as myself. You are myself. Let’s all love each other as ourselves. Let’s give and deliver the highest possibility of human existence without expectation.

I love you and wish you great success; I wish you and your family, friends and relatives a great successful new year filled with nonviolence. No violence – lots of love. This is your Mohanji.

Mohanji’s Christmas Message

brahmarishi mohanji wishes you merry christmas- message

I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
What I would like to tell you today about Christmas is the whole idea of celebration of oneness with the world. Jesus said you should love your neighbour as you love yourself. You should look at everybody as yourself. There is no separation. And today, if you look at the whole world, we only talk about separations, we only talk about greed – various factors which divide people. It’s time we started looking at ourselves as expressions of every being. Please understand this clearly or repeat after me:

“I am happiness. I am sorrow. I am the light. I am the darkness. I am the strength. I am the weakness. I am life. I am death. I am everything – every aspect of life. I am good. I am bad. I am handsome, beautiful. I am ugly. I am EVERYTHING. Every aspect of life is me. All that you see around is my own reflection.”

How do you know it’s your own reflection? If you get affected, you have something to do with it. If you are not affected by anything around you, that means you are already contained within yourself. However, that’s not the case with most of us. We are affected by numerous factors of existence, for life  changes because of external factors. When we clearly understand that, we then  realise that we are part of the entire  society,  a part of the entire  world, or the whole creation. Every being, every aspect of creation is part of us.

So, during this Christmas, the best you could express is,  you being the whole universe,  you as everything – every being, every emotion, every quality or a conflict. All things are you. And the reason why there are conflicts in life is that they are always rooted in resistance of some kind. When we resist many things in life they block the energy flow;  they diminish us, reduce us and our experience is that of conflict within . Various kinds of sorrows come  out of these conflicts. We want certain things to happen in a certain way, an ideal way, but they do not. . Why is it not happening? There are various factors providing that situation which we experience every day. And largely, we can’t change in one day, what collective consciousness or our own experience over a period of time has created in our life. . That’s because something which has happened in our life today may have a history of many lifetimes, it is  probably not  from  this lifetime. What you experience today might be because of various things of various lives, or various aspects of this life – both are possible, but what you are experiencing today is not an isolated incident ; rather  it is connected to various things, and we  must be clear about that. And how is that aspect  of life sustained or kept alive? It’s only through resistance. When you try to push things away, it affects our equilibrium.

Why should we accept? It is not passive acceptance. Acceptance is always connected to your accepting that it is happening in your life, it is flowing through life, it has to come and it has to go. Acceptance is clarity that a situation will not happen unless there is a cause for it. An effect will not happen without a cause. A situation will not happen without a reason. This awareness is good enough. Actually, this is the only learning  we need; we will  know, “Ok there is a cause, I may not know it, but it’s fine. I am alright with that.” If we are very clear about this aspect of our existence, then everything else will flow. Acceptance has a lot of value in a life of stability, a life of maturity. It is not passive acceptance leading to inertia: “This is happening, I cannot do anything about it, so I am suffering.” This is not suffering. Acceptance cannot have suffering. Acceptance is mature understanding that this is the way it is, this is how it is flowing and this is the situation. Something has created the situation and that’s perfectly alright. You do not know what created the situation. Maybe multiple things created it, maybe it’s connected to various concepts we have cultivated over a period of time, all these are possible. Anything is possible. However, our level of acceptance will strengthen us: “Ok this is happening, let me experience this, then the next one…”

mohanji 1 merry christmas

Life means experiences. Reason for taking the body, for taking an incarnation is experience. You are experiencing numerous things of life. All your relationships are your experiences.  You cannot own anybody. You cannot own anything in life. All the materials which you have, which have come to your life are only for your experiences. Various factors of existence in life are all for experiences. Only one thing is happening in life and that is – experience. It is derived out of people, places, materials… Take any aspect of life, everything is providing you some experience. Sometimes you may call it good, sometimes you may call it bad, but at the end of the day, they are all experiences. You cannot change any of those things. You are a bundle of experiences, a memory of all of them.   Your experience aspect of life or maturity is only the collection of your experiences  from childhood  until now. In fact, what you are is a bunch of, a memory of or an impact of experiences.

Second aspect is that life means expressions. Christ consciousness means your ability to express compassion, unconditional love, sharing, caring, purity.  These are higher aspects of human existence. You have your awareness – first of all the awareness that you were born, that you are an incarnation, you are alive, you have a body, you have a society, activity, a character, a constitution… This is the level of awareness that we fundamentally have and that awareness should lead you to your highest expression. That is the state of being Christ. When you express compassion, kindness, unconditional love, sharing, caring and selflessness, in other words, the  highest aspects of existence, which are not  for your personal selfish gratification, that makes you one with the Christ’s consciousness. Look at a mango tree.  It is situated in one location,  gives shade and shelter to birds and various creatures,  gives shade to all the people who walk that way; it also provides food which is its fruit   and releases oxygen into the environment. It is only giving. It does everything for another person’s benefit. And the mango tree is not affected by who eats its fruit, or who uses the shade. Just like that, when our existence is for the world, we completely dissolve. We stop being our selfish incarnation.

Otherwise we are only thinking about what more we can have from this world. That’s the illusion which we talk about, the Maya. Maya is the relative truth, the illusory aspect of the existence, one that makes us  believe that more materials can make us happier. We believe that more money can make us happier. We believe that if we have a particular relationship, a love relationship or a connection with something or somebody, if we move to another location,  it will make us happier. Please remember, if you look at your own life from the childhood till now, what actually made you happy are those momentary things and they never stayed. They were momentary pleasures. For example, when you have  a great meal,  at that point in time you are very satisfied and happy. But  later, you become hungry again.  You went  on a picnic to a particular location, saw some sights,  took some pictures against the backdrop, you are happy for some time. Then you want more. So, nothing stays. No happiness is permanent. This is important to understand.

mohanji 2 merry christmas

Hence, to understand the consciousness of Christ, it’s that in every place, you are yourself. Your happiness is completely situated inside. You are fully happy with everything around you whether it is good, bad or ugly. “Happy” not in the sense that you are accepting everything passively but that you understand that this is the situation provided by various factors of existence of the past – past lives as well as the past of this life. You are here now and it   cannot be changed. You cannot change this situation, this time, the space, the awareness, the environment- and that is fine. That’s the level of acceptance we are talking about. When you are talking about Christ’s consciousness, that level of acceptance: situations are provided, God-given. They are a gift of God. If we understand that as a gift of God, then we are happy and settled within: “Let me be here.” What did Christ say? “If it is Your will, let it be.” That means you are surrendering to the highest will. Actually, when talking about the highest will, God does not interfere  in our life, just like your soul. Your soul is the energy which moves you, motivates you, leads you. This is the aspect of you which is actually making you experience  your entire   life, but again, the soul is not experiencing. The soul is only providing and facilitating the experience. It is completely neutral. It has never interfered in your decisions, your pleasures, sorrows or happiness. Soul has never ever interfered in anything. Just like that God never interferes in your personal life, in your likes and dislikes, in what you do for a living, in what you are. God does not interfere. God is the platform which provides all this. If your soul has given you  life, God has given life to the universe. Universe is where we exist. And we are  only a tiny particle of  the  whole universe. Because we are so preoccupied with our incarnation,  we are deluded that this is existence.

This existence is also temporary. For example, if you look at the past, billions of people walked this earth before us. If you look at the last 100 years, many people have come and gone. If you take the next 100 years,  many  including us will come and go. Many more people will come. And “the platform” keeps  providing for all these people. Everybody comes and goes, people have experiences, and they have happiness, sorrow, a lot of things to talk about. We also develop ownerships: my father, my mother, my husband, my daughter, my dog, my furniture, my house, my car… all these attachments also come as part of the incarnation.   In each incarnation, deep within  we know that we are here just like tourists, for a period of time, as we came here for a period of  time and will have to leave after that.   There is nothing we can own   in this journey; you can own no relationships, father, mother, children, property, nothing. It is not yours; it is all part of your experience pattern, part of your plan of experiences. If you look at it from this understanding, your life’s transitions and the encounter with various people, gave you certain experiences. . The same people can give you a good or bad experience. At one point in time, a set of people give  you good experience, at another point in time, the same set of people   give  you bad experience. At the end of the day, these are all experiences.  Finally each of it is just an experience. Furthermore, nobody stays. Everyone  comes and goes. Some people decide to go because of their mind, some, because of their life. Life took them away or even death took them away. All this is possible. Everything is possible. That is the level of acceptance we should have to be in Christ’s consciousness.

Christ’s consciousness is total acceptance of  every situation in life. Jesus could have saved himself from the cross. He had that power. However, he chose to go through the process and stick to his teaching. What he was telling people was, “Whatever your possessions are, whatever your positions are, they are all temporary. What you give, you have. Undoubtedly, you have only that which you deliver consistently and with conviction. And for that message to be implemented – if an  exit  as dramatic  as the one  in Jesus’ life had to happen, it was  the best thing  because there is no other way in which one  could  exit and  leave a compelling message that could not be ignored; an exit that people really felt for and could not ignore the impact of the exit. That is probably why, if you take as an example Lord Rama, who was an avatar with full awareness; he was in the forest for 14 years; his wife was kidnapped, while the person who orchestrated the kidnapping, Ravana, seemed to have a great life.  He was a bhakta of Lord Shiva, he had all that he wanted, but in the end Rama had to come and kill him. When you go in the path of the negative – selfishness, greed, hatred… if you walk on that path, initially you may feel some kind of success, you may feel great, but eventually it pulls you down and leads you to a reduced frequency. It simply reduces your frequency to the level of anger, hatred, jealousy, comparison… the aspects which make you alienated from the truth. In contrast, an experience which makes you feel one with the whole universe – compassion, kindness, love, no separation – that’s your highest human experience possible in a human body. You definitely have that option.

mohanji 3 merry christmas

You do have an option of having the highest possible experience. While you are in the body, this is the best you can do. Much of it is accepting yourself with all your weaknesses and strengths, you do not pretend in any way. All of us have weaknesses. Don’t try to hide them. Not in the sense that you quickly display it, but in the sense that you don’t have to hide them i.e. pretend that you don’t have them. That is a burden. Whenever you pretend, whenever you hide, it becomes your biggest burden because then your entire mind and energy is preoccupied with what is being hidden. Instead, you just live with acceptance, you have weaknesses, you have strengths, everybody has them, live with that awareness. Do not try to be perfect, to say that only perfection will happen out of your existence. It’s not true. We have made mistakes. We will make mistakes. We might have fallen many times before we learnt to walk. Mistakes are part of our existence, falling is part of our existence, so called “failures” – when what you expected is different from what happened, our expected result did not happen, are part of our existence. People get depressed. Nowadays because of extreme pressure on achieving  only success, children are committing suicide if they fail an examination! This is the tragedy of our existence. This is a non-understanding factor of our existence. We can fail, what’s the problem? Why should we always be successful? We can always have both sides. It’s about both sides. Life is about duality. There is success and failure, happiness and sorrow, there is night and day. Life goes on like that.

When you clearly understand that this is the way life operates, then you will be peaceful with yourself. That is acceptance. That being Christ – being Christ’s consciousness. Total acceptance, total contentment with what is available, what has been given, as a gift. The food that came to your table is the medicine for you. That means the food which comes easily to you is the medicine meant for you. That’s what you deserve. What you deserve you get, what you desire you may not get. In life your eligibility factor decides what you get. Eligibility factor means that which  you have cultivated over a period of time. Imagine you have cultivated a lot of seeds, over time eventually they become fruit. That initial factor is essential. The right step – that of selflessness. If you live for the world, the world will live for you. If you do not live for the world, then the world will not care. Why should the world care about you if you only live for yourself, for selfish reasons and selfish gratifications? Please remember. We use this platform called the Earth. We use this earth for our purpose, for our gratification, for our pleasure.  Please pay back. The only way you can pay back to earth is to share what you have. Nobody says you should not experience or enjoy anything life provides you. This is alright. Life has provided you numerous objects enjoy them if you could.

However, please remember: more materials do not mean more enjoyment. It probably means less enjoyment. For example, you have a buffet on the table. You can only eat what your stomach can contain. Even if you like all the dishes on the table, you may not be able to consume them. Why? Because of your capacity. More materials, money, relationships, do not essentially mean you have more experiences. It only means you have more choices. These choices are an illusion, too, because they are all temporary. Nothing stays. For example, when you were a child, you played with many toys happily. Now you are not interested in playing with them. As you grew up, you had various gadgets to “play with”. They gave you pleasure, some kind of stability, happiness, at some point in time. Even if you regularly use a mobile phone, you do not use it when you sleep. Say, you purchased a beautiful car, a Rolls Royce; you can only drive from one point to another. You cannot sleep in it all the time or use it all the time. Just like that, everything has its time and space limitations, its experience aspect, and they change.

Life is about changes. Acceptance means accepting those changes gracefully. When you gracefully accept those changes, it changes you. It gives you contentment. If you resist them, saying, “This is not what I want, I want to change things. I want to move things,” then you will always have conflicts with something. That is what sustains the pain. Otherwise pains will come and go. Nothing stays. If happiness comes, so does pain. They don’t stay. Situations come and go, they happen and dissolve. This is the way life goes. We must be very clear about this aspect. Today, I am talking. Another time I do not know whether I will be alive to talk. I talk today because I am alive. I can talk, that is why I am talking. Who knows how long I can talk! And that’s about it. Tomorrow, if I am able to talk, I will do so. If you are able to listen, you will listen. Life is as simple as that. Every situation has given you a chance for an experience. Don’t deny it. If you deny it, that is the biggest mistake you are making in your life because you are using your mind, your analytical aspects and then you choose not to have an experience. In the bargain, you have guilt. Guilt happens when you could not experience a particular thing at a particular time, or you could not utilise something which was provided by life at a particular time in a particular way, or you feel later that you could have done better. That is all connected to impossibility i.e. it is not possible. You have to experience this talk at this time. Tomorrow I will not be able to talk in this mode.

mohanji 4 merry christmas

Everything is kept on time. Time is like the walking belt at the airport. When you walk, the belt also moves so that you don’t have to walk as much. Similarly, time keeps moving, it continuously moves, you can run over it, you can walk over it, you can stand on it, but it is still moving. Time takes you forward. This is exactly how our life exists. This is why we need to have acceptance. First and foremost, acceptance is that you have to experience life using your senses – eyes, nose, ears, mouth and skin.

Second, to experience everything you have only one mind. Five senses and one mind. When mind is with the eyes, you see. When mind is with your nose, you experience smell. When mind is with your tongue, you experience taste. So our experiences are limited to our mind and the presence of mind. At another time it may not be possible because if your mind is elsewhere and you are eating, you may not even know what you ate unless the food is too spicy or very bad in taste – then you will definitely bring your focus back. Otherwise you will keep eating; like your mother’s food, the food provided by those closest to you, you may consume – almost thanklessly because we have taken it for granted. We have thus taken for granted many things in life, “Oh, it will happen, it will continue, this is all fine”. That is one of mistakes we make. It is not being conscious, it is not our acceptance, but it is a passive life, a passive existence. Passive means almost like dormant, i.e. you have not lived it. Passive aspects of existence mean that we have not connected to that part of life. It is happening. In hindsight you know that it happened or you probably know that it is happening but you are not actually being that experience at that time. The experiences which we talk about, the true experiences happen only when your mind is available and present. That is why I always say that when you do one thing, do only that. Don’t worry about the other aspects. If you are eating food, just eat. When you play with your children, just play. When you talk to somebody, just talk to that person; so that at every point in time your experience has a completion, absoluteness. That is being in the present and that is acceptance of a situation.

Now if something “wrong” happens in life, “wrong” in the sense that it does not bring you happiness, just have patience with that situation, then that situation changes. When it changes, then you are in a different mode. Everything that has come will also go. Nothing stays.

Another aspect of Christ’s consciousness is zero ownership. You don’t even own your body. You have taken your body for a particular time. That is why I said that if you look at the last 100 years, so many people have come and gone, in the next 100 years  many will come and go. We will also become history. Some may remember (us), some may forget. And people who lived with you will also go. Everybody goes behind the curtain of time at some point in time. There will always be fresh set of people on the screen, on the stage. If you want to leave your signature on earth, it has to be through giving. How much you deliver to this world,  will become your legacy. That is how people will remember you. Why are we talking about Jesus 2000 years after his exit? Because he delivered his own life for the sake of his conviction. What he was saying is, “I am everything. I live it. I am you. I am here for serving. I am not here for selfish pleasures. I am not here to accumulate more wealth. I am not here to have more bindings or control over things. I am here to give. I am not controlling anything. I am not possessive of anything. I am not bound by possessions. I am not bound by positions.

That’s the message he conveyed. And that made sense to people because this is true to everybody, to all people. Lord Krishna walked on this earth with a lot of energy and power and still walks the earth with a lot of energy and power. Why do we still talk about Krishna? Why do we worship him? Why do we love him? It’s because he loved every aspect of existence. As a child he loved the childishness, pranks of a child (he was fond of eating and also stealing butter). He loved pranks and everybody loved them. In His youth He loved the romantic aspect; in fact He celebrated it. We all have a romantic aspect in us. When you say, “a beautiful flower”, in other words when we appreciate something, it is the  romance in us talking. While all of us have a romantic side, over a period of time, just to be an adult we have completely discarded that aspect. When we appreciate and love something, when we say good things, it is coming from the beauty and the sense of love in us, the romance aspect of us. Krishna made it exemplary. He completely lived it and he asked the world to romance life. That’s the best way to live. Imagine that Krishna aspect is not happening in our life today, we will not understand that it is ok to be everything in life. Then He was a great ruler. He ruled the country with great warmth and a sense of justice. Everybody was completely at ease. A true ruler / king is the one who ensures that everyone sleeps peacefully – not only human beings, but also animals and birds – that every aspect of creation has peace in their state, in their existence. That is the right ruler. Krishna made that possible. Everybody was peaceful in his country, in his empire. Then He was a great philosopher. From a stage of sinking, going into depression, He made a warrior out of a person (Arjuna). That is the connection.That is the conviction. You can see a lot of people tired of life. They say, “I am tired of life. I do not want to live anymore. No good things are happening.” They are in a completely depressed state. From there bring a purpose out, serve the world, do something for the world. Give life to life. Give life to every being around you. “Life” in the sense of activity, brightness,  confidence to everything around you. That level of delivering life to life made Him a complete, powerful philosopher. Therefore look at every aspect. All great masters had something to deliver and they delivered great messages.  Thousands of years later we still worship Him and respect Him. This is the secret. What you deliver honestly, truthfully and with conviction, generations will talk about; generations will be inspired by it. If we only earn something, own some gadgets, materials in life, all one can say is, “Good for you”.  It might be a great for your personal life. You have more money, cars, or materials than your neighbour and you may be the richest person around. But when you die, you leave everything behind. So all your life you probably lived an illusion. I am not saying this is not good. I am saying whatever life has offered, accept it gracefully with both hands, “Give it to me and thank you very much for it.” There is no point in saying “I want this, I want that”. That is a type of resistance because you are only postponing it. Something that has to come to you will come to you; be it a situation, a time, a space or material, anything which has to come to you will come to you. What you experience is your personal experience, but what you are able to share with happiness, with a clean heart, with purity, that stabilises you. This is Christ’s consciousness. Not to share because you are better than another one – that is ego. If you think you are better than another one and give something to them, it is ego. Ego is also a blockage in us. If you stop having something then you feel depressed. That’s the other side.Serve without expectations. Serve without conditions. That is Christ’s consciousness.

Please make a decision today if you could, that you will give more than you take. You will always give or share more than you ask for. We always ask for more and more from the Earth, I want this, I want that, and you feel it will give you more happiness. It’s probably not true. When you give more, you get more wealth inside. You will actually be rich inside. If you are rich inside, that is your wealth. “Rich inside” means your ability to share. Just make that decision – always be rich inside and be in Christ’s consciousness.

I’ll take your questions now.

How to overcome addictions? Being aware is very difficult in the heat of the moment.

Mohanji: First of all make a diagnosis that you have an addiction and it is binding you. It can be any binding – a person, material, any binding is not conducive for liberation, whether it is a person, a situation, ownership of materials, ownership of people… Whatever bindings we have, they are all handicaps. They are all addictions. They are not only material addictions. So fundamentally, we need a diagnosis i.e. awareness that there is something which is binding you.

Next,  whenever you cannot handle something yourself, approach somebody who can help you; someone who has already gone through it, who has experience, who can guide you to get out of it. Whenever a situation happens in our life, for example,  you have to handle tax payment and you do not know how to do it, you have to talk to a tax consultant to handle it correctly. Similarly, when you have an ailment, you need to talk to a doctor. When you have an addiction, a compelling behaviour which you cannot change, you need to connect to an expert. That is the best approach. We have experts, counsellors, guides who can take people out of various situations. You can choose one who is  time-tested or with good recommendations. That’s the way to come out of addictions. Usually the same mindset which started an addiction cannot get one out of it because the same frequency which created something cannot be used to uncreate it. You need a slightly higher frequency to uncreate it. That is exactly how it has to happen.

What is true wealth in the widest sense?

I already answered that. Your richness is your ability to give or share what you have. Whatever you have collected on earth you have to leave them behind. Imagine,  you are not able to eat the food which has come to your table; it then carries no value to you. However, when you eat it, experience it, when it actually gets digested, it strengthens your body and only then the value happens. Just like that a lot of information comes to you from life; each day, through the Internet, Whatsapp, Face book… a great deal of information flows. It is coming into you. How much if that will you process? How much will you remember? What you process is what you paid attention to. That is the only thing you process. And only upon practise, it becomes wisdom. There is plenty of information and if you do not pay attention to, it is not yours. It comes and goes. You recognise that it is coming and going, but it is not staying and it is not becoming yours. You do not have it. Thus the information which you have paid attention to becomes knowledge. The knowledge which you apply in your life becomes wisdom. Only then does it become wisdom, just like food. It has no value if it is on the table. If you eat it, you experience it, then it goes through the stomach, through the digestive process and it nourishes your body. That is actually the only time when food becomes yours. Otherwise it’s not yours. Everything about life is like that. It is not yours unless it goes through you, you practise it and it shifts your awareness.

Thus richness is always your ability to give more, to give what you have, to share what you have. You can have knowledge, money, skills, time… And what you share is your richness. If you do not have something, you cannot share it. Only if you have something can you share it. So what you have is your strength. It is not your wealth. Wealth is your ability to share. Your incarnation becomes meaningful only if you share. Otherwise life is like that of an animal – you eat, drink, sleep and then die. This is how most human beings live. We live an unconscious existence. And we blame others; have conflicts with others because of our selfishness, because of our non-understanding, our enmity. All these things are unnecessary. What we can do is ask, “What can we do for this world?” While we are alive and for how long we can do this, we don’t know – as long as we have a body, as long as we have the ability, we can give. Do something while you can. It will wipe out many blockages in your system. When we give more, we get more, just like when we draw water from the well. When we draw water from the well, fresh water comes into the well, maintains and balances the water level. If you don’t draw water, after a while it becomes stagnant and insects will breed in it. Then the water becomes unusable. This is how our situations are. We have accumulated stagnation because of our non-action, because of our incorrect action i.e. action only for selfish purpose. Correct action is selfless action, action for the larger good in the world.

Our inner richness is our ability to share, to give, to be compassionate, to be kind – these are the core principles of Sanatana Dharma.  If you are a proper sanatani (someone who practises Sanatana Dharma), you always express compassion, kindness, love, sharing, caring and selflessness. This is the way life should be – not one with anger, hatred, jealousy, revenge, lust, attachment, greed, anger, pride, selfishness, injustice, cruelty or ego. These diminish you, suck  away your energy, while compassion and kindness expand you, and make you more powerful, more energetic. You will not experience fatigue because you are here for the world.


When I live for the world, I am powerful. That is why my first point was that I am everything. I am happiness. I am sorrow. I am good. I am bad. I am strength. I am weakness. I am everything. From that, what you pick and choose and deliver to the world, that is your wealth.

Mohanji’s Datta Jayanthi Message for 2018

m-datta-jayanthi-2

Jai Maa (Hail to the Divine Mother). Wish you a happy Datta Jayanti (birthday of Lord Dattatreya). It is auspicious to be here doing the pooja (Mohanji did the Guru paduka pooja earlier).

Guruji has asked me to speak about Datta consciousness. In one word, I can say that it is you. It is your consciousness. Lord Datta is the Trinity in one – three in one – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. That means “Tat Twam Asi” – You are That. When you are realize that awareness that we are one – one consciousness with everything around us.

mohanji-quote-states-of-liberation

 

As we evolve with our human bodies, when we stop seeing differences at a certain stage, it means we have become a “human human”. When I say a “human human”, I refer to somebody who can only express compassion, kindness, selflessness, unconditional love, sharing and caring – beyond ownership, every possessiveness, every positions. That is one level of stabilization of consciousness. Only then do we actually become human beings. If we have many desires, we are still between the animal and human stages because we are still insecure.

The second stage is when you stabilize in “human human”, you then achieve the state of sainthood – “saint human”. When you say “saint human”, you are established in a state where you know that you don’t belong to anybody and nothing belongs to you. You know that you are not here to own anything from earth. You cannot own anything from earth. You can only have experiences with your relationships, positions, materials and possessions. That stabilization is called a “saint human” state.

From there, you can transcend to a “god human” state – a state where you clearly understand, recognize and experience that you are one with everything. There is nothing beyond you. You cannot see differences around you. You see only you in every atom, tree, bird, animal, person – you see only you. At that stage, you are one with the Datta consciousness. That means you are not bound by the human body (or incarnation). You are immortal. At that stage, incarnation cannot disturb you.

Mohanji's message for Datta Jayanthi-1
Letting go of every situation, acceptance of events of life without resistance and contentment in every moment are signs of a liberated existence. Life evolves. Everything changes. Whatever is born will die too. This is all that we need to be aware of every moment.

Incarnation also has attachments. You start believing you are this incarnation. You start believing that you are this position. Even gender, possessions, materials and relationships. Everything is your burden. At this stage, all these burdens go. You clearly understand that “I own nothing”. I can only have certain experiences from the things around me, and also some memories connected to it. When you are clear that you cannot own anything, even a memory has no value. When memory has no value, thoughts have no value. These are samadhi states. You reach levels of samadhi where thoughts cannot ruffle your mind. The mind itself loses importance. Mind itself starts collapsing. You reach a level of samadhi where mind collapses. When mind collapses, you only have consciousness. You are one with consciousness. Consciousness has three aspects – jagrut (waking), svapna (dream) and sushupti (deep sleep). That also becomes one because you cannot have three aspects. It has to be one.

mohanji-quote-states-of-samadhi - datta jayanthi message

 

From here, you transcend further. These are all samadhi states which all of us will attain at some point. Nobody can escape it. Today it may not be your reality but tomorrow it will. So it’s not that you have to lose something to reach here. You just be. To be Datta, you have to just be. Being you 100% – in one word it is called acceptance. Total acceptance of yourself. You cannot compare and you cannot change yourself. You are already this incarnation which you cannot change. Just like you cannot change the model of car once you purchase it. You change the interiors of the car to some extent but you cannot change the model itself. Similarly, you cannot change and you don’t have to change yourself. This is a clear understanding of Datta consciousness. Datta consciousness is you – being absolutely you.

And once you are clear about that, there is a very deep silence that settles in. Very deep silence – meaning nothing external disturbs you, nothing internal disturbs you. Your samsakaras, memories, impressions of things of the past, all the things which you might have collected in your existence in this life or past lives, stops disturbing you completely. Nothing disturbs you. You are in a perpetual state of silence and it has nothing to do with what you do in life. You can be a doctor, engineer, scientist, civil servant – whatever you do will have no value. It will just be an activity that you do for a living. It will be part of your appointed duty.

mohanji-quote-living-freedom - datta jayanthi message

 

Apart from that, you are completely free all the time. You are witnessing and watching yourself. You perform but will have nothing to do with your performance. Your action and the result of that action is not a disturbance. No activity which is owned by you. No ownership – no disturbance. You are free. Acceptance leads to freedom. Freedom stabilizes to liberation. Liberation means nothing outside disturbs you, nothing inside disturbs you. There are no desires. Because desires are connected to mind. Mind itself is not there. Nothing is bothering you, no disturbance, absolute stillness. That is Datta consciousness.

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.
