Mohanji’s New Year Message for 2020

 

Hello my dear friends,

I wish you a very, very happy New year!

How do you feel at the end of 2019, the last decade of this decade, which is about to be closed?  I think we have met each other. Most of us have met, and we had some time together. I am very happy and grateful that we met.

Now, 2020 is happening: the new decade, new hopes, new feelings. It is a good point in time to decide that whatever we could not do or whatever we could not accomplish in the last decade, we could complete in this decade. It is very simple; we don’t have to think complicatedly. We don’t have to remember too many things, just take a couple of small steps for decisions.

One of the decision is to accept yourself with all your weaknesses and strengths. Accept yourself. We all have weaknesses, we all have strengths. We are not just weaknesses, we are not just strengths. So why don’t we just accept ourselves as we are? A major problem gets solved. A major problem in our life happens because of resistance, non acceptance. We don’t accept many things about ourselves. We don’t accept many things in the society. We have a lot of resistance to so many things and that causes a lot of anxiety, fear…

Likewise we make a lot of comparisons. We compare ourselves with other people. We have too many comparisons, which prevents us from experiencing life in its completion.

One more thing which you can very well follow, is respect those who really love you. There are so many people in this world who really care for you and love you, there will be somebody – respect them, don’t take them for granted. Because we usually chase love from somebody who does not care about us, and we forget or we ignore the people who love us. That’s the irony of life. Instead, we should not worry about those people who do not care for us and concentrate on the people who love us. That’ll make your life much brighter. Your focus, your concentration will be on those people who will give you companionship, who will stand by you through heat and cold, good and bad times. These are the people who are your real relatives. They have to be taken care of. They are your blessings of this life. That you should understand. Always follow that.

And ignore those people whom you really want to love you, like you, but they don’t care. That’s ok. You don’t have to be approved by everybody. Not everybody may approve you. Not everybody may accept you. This is how the world is. Not everybody likes you, not everybody dislikes you.

So, let us understand that this world is as it has been offered to you – as you interact or as you are. Your world is around you and what you can interact with. That’s your world. The world is very large, it’s multifaceted, multidimensional, but we don’t have that world. What world do we have? The world where we can experience something, which we can interact with. Today in the internet age, we have a much larger world. Through the internet we can experience so many things, but essentially we have our limitations and boundaries. Within those limitations and boundaries, how much you accept yourself, how little you resist situations, and how much you love the people who love you or take care of the people who love you, and those who return, reciprocate, care for you the same way, that much you will be able to make a great 2020 and the next decade.

DSC_7245

Respect is very, very important. Respect should start with yourself. You have a body, you have a healthy body, you are breathing, you are able to sleep. You are able to eat and the food is getting digested. You are reasonably healthy. All these things are extraordinary things. Be grateful. Have respect.

What can be the highest prayer? The prayer of gratitude. Those who are grateful are also graceful. They are filled with Grace.

All the great Masters have spoken about ekāgratā (the steady concentration). Steady concentration has to start with you. You have to concentrate on yourself. Assimilate yourself. What is this thing called you? Understand. Try to understand.

You will find the you are multifaceted. You are amazing, you are supremely amazing. Why? Because you are a synchronicity of so many factors, flavours, variations together performing in unity. We always fail to see it, because we look outside. We always look outside, so we fail to see the thing called us, this unit called us. That is something that we must really take care of. Use this next decade to understand yourself, be with yourself, assimilate yourself, accept yourself, respect yourself and then give forth or give to this world around you extraordinary love: kindness, acceptance, compassion.

Make sure because of you no being is harmed in the next decade, 2020s.  Make sure, because of your need nobody is punished. Nobody is harmed, nobody has pain, because you exist. Nobody should be having any pain. No greed, no competition, no comparison, because these are all things which drain you, which really, really drain you. And also, when you compare – you’ve already divided yourself; you are not accepting yourself. When you compare, you can’t accept yourself. When you do not compare, you are also accepting yourself, and accepting  the other person.  This is the whole thing.

Next decade is a very important decade. We have seen a lot of unrest around us. Unrest for the sake of divisions which the minds have made.  We have no divisions. There are no religions, there is only humanity. Humanity is the core religion. We are species. The species as a whole has got a value, relevance on this planet. But when species is divided into country, culture, class, religions, various denominations, we are scattered. Mind is scattered. We don’t understand each other. We don’t respect each other. We don’t love each other. That’s not to be. That should not be the case to finish with.

DSC_6100

In fact, next decade we should all concentrate on unifying. Making ourselves as a unit, where we are complete: body, mind, intellect, ego, spirit, all together as a complete unit. Fully accepting ourselves and unifying the whole diverse, creations into one aspiration of love. Just be love.

We don’t need to complicate this whole thing. Every being responds to love. Every being becomes rich by sharing. That’s what we should do. Share what you have. Share everything that you have. We will never have enough, because of the mind factor. Mind always asks for more. We have a desire, we ask for fulfillment. After the fulfilment mind asks for another fulfilment, another desire, another fulfillment… Like that we are in a circular motion: always desire and fulfillment. That’s never ending.

Take a step backwards, look at what we can give to this world. We have plenty to give. We are a multifaceted Universe, not just a unit. You are a Universe. We have a lot of dimensions. We have numerous expressions and let our expressions be the highest, because we have that talent. Nature, God has given us imagination. God has given us great intellect, which created this whole world, all the things we use on the earth, in the water, in the air. Everything is created by the human imagination – intellect. We all have intellect, products of intellect. We are amazing, we have great capacities. Let’s use that capacity to give more happiness to this world, more contentment. We need this whole world for our own experience. Human species is just one species, we have numerous species.

We can’t overpower all the species of earth. We should not. Everybody, every species has the same right on earth, just like us. So what we should do?  We should share, care and integrate. Make everything inclusive: every plant, every tree, every being, every bird, everything in the sky, everything on earth, everything in the water. Everything is important. Every being is important. This is exactly what we should be concentrating on. We should be concentrating on unifying all these things; making sure that every being is peaceful; every being is happy. We should also be happy. We should be contented. We should be contented  with what is given to us, for which we must be grateful. We should be really grateful. And also, do not compare, do not criticize; do not judge, do not betray, that’s very bad. These are all things which drain you, which diminish your frequency, which reduce your energy. Please understand, whatever you do which is negative by nature, like comparisons, anger, hatred, jealousy, criticism, betrayal, gossiping, character assassination, all these things drain you, and make you less. It’s very difficult to increase the frequency if you go down to that frequency. This is the drop, that reduction in the frequency.

PHOTO-2019-12-07-05-46-22

What we need to do is to enhance the frequency through kindness, compassion, love. You should be careful about all these things. Let us unite, let us be together, let us love, let us be understanding, let us be awareness, let us be One. Let the next decade be that of Oneness, not of divisions. The time for divisions is over, I believe so. I believe that the time of divisions is over. We are not separate. We are all One. We are all one family. We have the same aspirations. We have the need for love, we have the need for togetherness. We have the need to experience life together. This is all part of us. So, let us use this time, this space, this awareness, for creating a better world.  I am with you. I am walking with you. I am giving what I can within my capacity, for an enhancement of your life, and together we are a powerhouse. We are strong. I am empowering you as much as I can, likewise you should empower the world as you can. Together, we have lots to do.

2020 is happening. I wish you a great year and this is not the end. This is just the beginning. We have great things to do in this life. Don’t just exist and die. Live and let everybody live. We have no enemies. There are no enemies.“Enemies“ is an aberration of mind. How can there be enemies? There are only disagreements. We consider some people or things we do not agree with, as not our cup of tea, so we look at them as enemies. But these are all distractions. Don’t look at them. We have the right to be peaceful. We are peace incarnates. What we need to do is bring together like-minded people, positive vibrations and spread this around the world. We are One. We are together.

I am walking with you, and I love you from the bottom of my heart, and I receive your love as well. I always feel it. I wish you a great 2020. Shine bright. This world needs Light.

Love you.

I am always with you.

Thank you.

Diamonds and Stones

Life is Precious…Cherish it

Q: Life is Precious

A: Indeed. Life is precious. Every moment is precious. We have already missed many diamonds while we were busy collecting stones.

Life of Bondage is not LIFE at all

Q: Life is about Liberation

A: Indeed. But it is not about escapism. It is not about discontentment with what we have and lust after what we do not have. It is not about comparisons. It is not about sadness over inequalities. It is not about resistance and turmoils inside. Liberation is about LIBERATION – an existence in which you have everything, but need absolutely nothing. Whether a material is available or not, there is no agony or ecstasy. Nothing is essential. True liberation  is lack of dependancy on anything and being grateful about everything.

Life itself is the True Achievement – What ever your path is, what ever you are into.

Q: Life is about achievements

A: Indeed. But, it is not about the cups and trophies  in the wardrobe. It is about the blessings that you rendered to the helpless. It is about our ability to make a positive difference to another being.True achievments cannot be counted in fingers, but can only be measured through one’s spiritual progress, one’s level of liberation. True achievements are the tangible moments that we lived selflessly. This is the only place where everyone wins. All material achievements are gain for some and loss for some.

Individual Thoughts Add to the Collective Destiny

Q: Life is about Thoughts

A: Indeed. What you think, so you become. Thought is the first level of creation where energy is released. Thoughts arise out of an inherent desire existing in the sub conscious in the seed form, blooming in the right environment. Thoughts, if powerful enough, lead to further expressions such as words or images. If the words are powerful enough, they lead to action. Action, combined with emotions, becomes karma. Karma leads to further births. Thus goes the life of a Man. So, every thought is important. Nothing goes wasted in our system. Collective thoughts of a generation create events. Oppression or suppression brings forth an Avatar who will destroy evil and reinstall dharma. A life style based on procrastination and lethargy will provoke wars and change. Thus, at every point in time, all are participating in the creation of a collective destiny, which in turn becomes the individual destiny, in which ever degree it should.

For the Hungry, God is Food. Avoid Wastage of Food

Q: Life is about food.

A: Indeed. Body is a sheath made out of elements. Elements nurture that sheath till death and dis-integration. Body is linked to mind as much as mind is linked to body. Mind keeps emotions, including emotions related to food. Body needs are superseded by mind’s need for satisfaction. Mind rules. Body obeys. Obesity happens. Body does not need as much food as the mind needs. Mind nurtures craving. Body has its own intelligence. Our food habits reflect our character and destiny. Unconscious eating, emotional eating and craving leads to over eating, obesity and sudden deaths. Food that is cooked and stored, food containing dead organisms (which lacks praana) and food that is contaminated, decrease the consumer’s vital energy gradually and makes him vulnerable to many diseases. One who is in control of his consumption can be considered an emperor of his own life. Moderate eating which fills one third of the stomach, while one third remains filled with water and one third with air, is supposed to be the ideal quantity for a healthy living. Moderate eating, moderate sleeping, and moderate excercise along with personal hygiene makes a superb human. Wastage of food is a crime. It should never be entertained. Take only what you can effortlessly consume. Never take food for granted. Our body has consumed tons of food and gallons of water till date. Much more is wasted also. We live in a world where some starve and steal food while some fight obesity. Feeding the hungry is the noblest of all charities. Hungry can be a bird, animal or a human being. Irrespective of the type of body or species, we must educate our children to feed the hungry. This will arrest stress in them and make them higher beings in flesh and blood.

Success is Life. Life is success.

Q: Life is about Success

A: Indeed. True success of life depends on our growth in awareness. Success is in our spiritual evolution. Success is in our kindness expressed. Success is in liberating ourselves from all kinds of dependency. Success is in gaining simplicity. Success is in knowing oneself. Success is in success itself. All material successes are temporary and transitory. They come and go and involve either happiness or sorrow, but not equanimity. And yet, equanimity in happiness and sorrow, is the true success.

Faith Brings Miracles. Faith Moves Mountains

Q: Life is about Faith

A: Indeed. Faith happens, sooner or later. When ego subsides and gets nullified through consistent downfalls, faith happens. Faith leads. Faith soothes. Faith reinforces. Faith nurtures life. Faith elevates life. Faith stabilizes life. Faith Liberates man. Faith increases with experiences. Faith decreases when we disown our own experiences; swapping it for other’s opinions or book knowledge. Faith increases when surrender becomes absolute. Faith decreases when ego becomes predominant. Faith is real, if it is spontaneous. Faith is transitory, if it is induced or inherited. If man’s herd instinct leads to certain faith, it ends when he turns a new corner. Such is the passing faith which has no longevity. Faith based on conviction is more real, if conviction is based on truth.

Great Masters set examples of Selfless existence and unconditional giving.

Q: Life is about giving

A: Indeed. Only when giving becomes unconditional, and absolutely devoid of any expectations. Giving is not about wealth or money. Giving time, energy, knowledge, guidance, information, space, food, water, medicine, clothes, books, healing,  and everything else, done with pure intentions and without expectations indeed transforms a man into a “MAN”.

One who gives glows. One who selflessly moves in the society, radiates positiveness and hope. Even if his life is short, there will be LIFE in each moment. His purposefulness itself will radiate LIFE. Life is not worth it, if lived without any benefit to the world around us. It is nothing superior to the existence of an animal. Life is in Giving. Giving is essential in Life. Giving strenghtens and raises man to the level of God. It liberates him. Unconditional existence always liberates man.

Gratitude Makes hearts RICH

Q: Life is about Gratitude

A: Indeed. Gratitude liberates and positions the mind on the present. Being in the present itself is liberating. Gratitude makes the heart rich. A rich heart is  more precious than a rich wallet. Gratitude invokes child-like wonder in the mind. It makes life worth living. When gratitude becomes the essence of our character, excesses vanish, ego vanishes and anxieties vanish. Gratitude supports faith. Gratitude provides equanimity. Gratitude reinforce unconditional love. If you have to choose one quality in life, choose gratitude. It is worth it. Everything else will fall in place by itself.

Real Power is in Real Control of one’s mind and senses

Q: Life is about Power

A: Indeed. The real power lies in the state of control of  intellect over mind. When man becomes emotional, intellect gets shut down. Uncontrolled senses and mind amount to human weakness. Senses in control of the mind and mind in the control of intellect make a man powerful. The real wire puller is the soul, which is the all powerful. But, it does not express its power. It never over rules any decision of the mind or intellect. Having power, but not expressing it, or having to express it, is real power. Power, if used to create harmony and love in the world, is truly noble. Power, if used for conquests and suppression of other being, is demonic. How we wield our power depends on our basic character. Power makes a man naked, as it exposes his true nature. Some use power benevolently and for the benefit of all. They are true expression of the Almighty. They never entertain any barriers within, such as caste, creed, culture, countries, colors, communities etc. They are Universal beings. Their nature of expression is unconditional love. Some use power to control other beings through fear. They are insecure; and those leaders who create fear and control indeed lack character and quality.

An individual or an organisation is the same in this context. Organisation is a body consisting of many individuals. Power should be used for wiping the tears of many. It should be used for protecting rather than destroying. Power should be used with awareness and not emotion.

Power is a double edged sword. It could hurt the one that wields it. History is full of examples. One who has absolute power needs to be absolutely careful. Power should create harmony, love and peace. That is real power. One who has his mind in control, is really powerful too. Nobody can shake him ever. He will never be insecure. He will live a life of equanimity.Thus, the real conquest is the conquest of the mind.

The Power of Purity is incomparable and True

Q: Life is about Purity

A: Indeed. Purity of thought, word and action liberates man from everything. It strengthens his existence. Purity is power. Purity is truth. Truth is pure. All elements resonate with truth. Our whole being resonates with truth and purity. The whole universe resonates with truth and purity. When we live truth, purity happens. When we live a life of purity through consistently expressing purity through every thought, word and action, we elevate ourselves to an existence of supreme consciousness. There are no barriers in the realm of purity. There is supreme strength in the purity. The power of purity is tangible. The power of purity unburdens in various levels. The power of purity liberates. The power of purity immunizes from the rocks and shocks of daily existence. The power of purity radiates. Purity empowers.  Purity strengthens. Purity liberates. It brings gratitude into existence. It quells the wandering mind to a thought-less state. It quenches all questions. It brings contentment. It brings stability. It makes our very existence, a great experience. It fills our existence with Life. It brings purpose. It fills life with faith and hope. It connects us to the highest of consciousness. The Power of Purity is unfathomable. It is the nature of the Supreme.

Questions gets repeated, a 1000 times, until the mind drops dead. Then it is peace. Deep peace. Deep peace of acceptance. Deep peace of living the truth….

God Bless All

LOVE YOU

M

After 1000 questions, the mind drops dead. Liberation begins there.

Bless the World

Mohanji's Personal Blog - Bless the World - Bless All. It'll make you Serene and Light.
Mohanji's Personal Blog - Bless the World - Bless All. It'll make you Serene and Light.
Bless all. It’ll make you serene and light.

Blessing expands you. It makes you light. When we bless all the people we like and all the people we dislike, we truly become the perfect expression of the Almighty. His true expression is unconditional love. When we remove all the hatreds and fears from our mind, we become embodiments of LOVE. Love expands. Love makes our life enjoyable. When we express sincere gratitude to all the objects and beings that helped our existence on earth, we become universal. Once we understand the true relevance of the food that we have consumed so far, the houses that sheltered us, the books that gave us knowledge, our parents and our teachers, above all, the element of  Divinity that sustained us, we will be filled with humility and deep gratitude.

Most of our vital functions including respiration, circulation, digestion, heartbeat and even sleep for that matter, are controlled by our sub-conscious mind. All these things are working in perfect synchronization because our conscious mind has nothing to do with it.  We are given the time, space, intellect and situation to act out our inherent traits. What do we have in our control? Why do we blame others? Why do we entertain guilt at all? What is there to be afraid of?  All experiences have been lessons. We could not have changed anything. So, what else can we do except express unconditional love and compassion? What else can we do but to bless everybody and everything? When we realize that we are not really the one who does everything, we will see our ego getting nullified and our doer-ship getting dissolved. We will then operate in perfect awareness and gratitude.

God is within us. God is to be LOVED not Feared. The soul element that fuels our existence is the God within all of us. The one who Generates, Operates and Dissolves. Hence, all of us possess the same God element. None are inferior nor superior to anyone. Some evolved higher through rigorous practices, contemplation and meditation. Through lifetimes of efforts, they attained higher awareness. Thats all. In principle, all are one and the same. The same soul element fuels the existence of all the living beings, which includes plants, animals and birds. Just like the same electricity is used to operate various equipments, the same soul operates various bodies; and some of them are human bodies.

All of us are temporary custodians of this body, money and all our possessions. It is the same with relationships too. Everything is temporary. Everything has a definite longevity. There is no room for egocentric expressions, if we digest this truth. All we can do is forgive everything. Bless everything.

When we shift our consciousness to the spine and to 360 degrees, the impact, the wear and tear of the events that we are exposed to, will be very less. Nothing will touch us deeply. Nothing will overwhelm us. You will maintain perfect equanimity and deep gratitude. Nothing happens by accident. Everything has a perfect reason. We often cannot understand the reason from our level of consciousness. That’s all. Our inability should not be interpreted as cosmic deficiency. Cosmic perfection is infinite and incomparable.

Bless The World Meditation is two years old. In October 2007, we started BTW classes in Dubai. Till date, people have experienced BTW meditations in UAE, India, Qatar, UK, Germany, Russia, USA, Africa, Oman and many other places. BTW meditations have transformed many lives. Some have stayed and evolved. Some came and left, perhaps choosing different paths. As always, each person responded according to his/her inherent consciousness and constitution. We did everything with the purest of intentions without any selfish motives. That’s the best we could do.

All of us exist in various planes of consciousness. We carry the conditioning of our immediate past as well as other lives, without having clarity about it. We cannot usually figure out which conditioning provoked which response in us. But, invariably we are victims of our conditioning.  Hence, it is important to touch base with our own consciousness; our real Self. BTW meditations are designed to bring you to your Self.

All our classes are conducted with the spirit of service, free of cost. The aim of BTW has always been to elevate as many people as we can, to higher consciousness. Many people actually experienced the difference from where they began and where they are now. We uploaded the meditations in www.mohanji.org with the intention to make the meditations available to many or any, without any conditions.

Without a few acknowledgments, this text would be incomplete. This meditation came to me at least six months before we actually started teaching it in Dubai. It was Biljana Radonic (Biba) who literally pulled me out of my introversion and put me in front of the people. Biba started it all. Divinity worked through her to make it happen. Then it started spreading continuously through Dr.Manjari Rao, Shernaz, Mother Ines, Pradeep Sukhrani, Pradeep Ullal, Simran Kaur, Yashi Aunty, Dr. Samata, Reeta Verma, Krishnaji, Mr.Chandrasekhar, Dr.Malini, Easwar, Murali, Jennifer Randive, Marina, Sandi Saxena, Jaya Chopra, Devang Kapadia, Danijela, Marija Govedarica, Mark and many others. My sincere gratitude to all of them for their selflessness, purity and sincere love.

We wish you great spiritual evolution in this life. We are one. We are one family and one consciousness. We will never be separate from one another.

God bless all

Love

M
