Mind itself is a myth

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

I have to say that truth is what it is and it cannot be changed. It cannot be described. Unfortunately at this human awareness you cannot know the absolute truth. If you had known the absolute truth there would have been no problem of quarrelling, fighting, arguing. Because absolute truth is singular and I'm sitting before you. You all know I'm here, so you are not going to argue on that point. But when we argue we cannot see. We do not know who is sitting next to us. If there is some sort of a sound everybody will start running, helter-skelter, hurting each other. Maybe they might start fighting. But your eyes are open. When you are alert you know where you are.

So what is the truth? The truth is that you are not this body, this mind, this ego, these emotions, but you are the pure spirit. That's why all of them have said that you have to take your second birth. That means this birth is not the complete thing. In Sanskrit also we call a realized soul, a saint as Dwijaha, means born twice. Also bird is called as dwijaha, means born twice. And the bird is like a small egg. Till it grows and is broken by the mother it is not a bird, it doesn't exist as a bird. And when it is mature then it comes out of the egg, but there are still some things sticking to him out of the blood and the egg and other things. Then it starts flying; the mother teaches him how to fly. Then the bird becomes free, strong enough to go around the whole sky.

In the same way, it happens with human evolution. At the human stage we are just like an egg. One side is the ego, another side is the conditioning. This is how our mind is made by us. It is a myth, mind itself is a myth. And we can make computers; we also can make our own mind. So one has to go beyond this mind to know the reality, to know the absolute truth. This is the evolutionary state one has to achieve. That's the last breakthrough of our evolutionary process that has to happen to most of us. What surprised Me, the way the Russians have taken to Sahaja Yoga, also people in Ukraine, also Romania, Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary, but maximum by Russians."
