It is very kind of you to have invited me to Hampstead which I have visited many a times before. And I always felt that people living in this beautiful area must be having beautiful ideas about the Divine, because you see the effects of Divine better in the nature, in the beauty of nature. And then you start thinking that how God has made this beautiful world for us to enjoy. But so many things we take for granted, for example, our human life itself. We have taken it for granted. We've got a beautiful body, very beautiful personality.
At this point of awareness also we start thinking about something that is of the beyond. We start thinking that this is not the end of life. Why God has created us? Why did He create us out of amoeba with such care, with such love, with such delicacy? Why has He created us to be a human being? Is there any purpose in our life? Or are we just here to exist like animals then die, at the most, having some insurances to be paid for our children? Is that the end of this human life which is being created with such care? For thousand of years a little cell of amoeba or, say, a little unicellular animal has gone through such a tremendous change to become a human being with this fantastic awareness. Why? Why has he come on this Earth? Such a question must arise in every intelligent mind. And when such a question arises, the search starts in the real way.
This came to us because there was an urge to seek. The time we needed to meditate to find out "what are we". Now, when I'm speaking to you about something , what we are and what we have to be, you are not to take Me for granted either. That would be very wrong, because if there is blind faith it's not going to help you at all. If it is also to deny, it is not going to help you. It's a very simple, practical, common sense. I can tell you how. For example, I say that there is a room, a big room, beyond there. Now, if you sit in this room and say, "Oh, I do believe you." You do not go and see the room. Secondly, if you say, "No, I deny. I don't believe you," still you don't see the room. So both ways it's just the same. So, what you have to do, that is to see the room. And this is how you are going to see about the Kundalini, all these forces that are existing within us, with that open mind that, "Let us see. If it is so, it's a very great thing."
Actually, human beings should be really very much thankful that there is a purpose in their life, that God has created them for a very great purpose. He has created them so that He can bestow His kingdom to them. So that as a very, very loving and compassionate Father, He could manifest His light, His whole, entire desire by giving you what He has, is His kingdom. It's a fact. That's why He has created us.
