We are a part and parcel of the whole

I bow to all the seekers of truth. So many of you have already found out what is the truth, truth about yourself ; that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, this ego, conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit. After realizing that, not knowing but realizing that, when you become the Spirit your attention gets enlightened by the Spirit. And this enlightened attention is so intelligent. And as it is connected with this all-pervading Power, you'll be amazed that whatever you try to look at, to put your attention to, it just works. It is such a proof that you are one with this all-pervading Divine Power. To prove that there is Divine Power which is all-pervading, first you have to become the realized soul, you have to become a person who is enlightened, as they call it - Buddha. The word is Bodha; comes from enlightenment. And the one who is enlightened is a very different personality from what that person has been. You become very powerful, no doubt very powerful; powerful in the sense is the power of love. Is not the power we know of, but is the power of love that acts, that works. And then you are amazed at yourself how you have been able to do so many things which you would never do. And how your personality becomes very sensible, wise, and also absolutely in balance.

Nobody has to tell you anything. You are your own master. But first you have to grow to that point. Till you become that, you are not yet empowered fully. But some people who are not yet understanding the importance of becoming, who do not know that they have to grow, become again useless, good for nothing. I always remember the parable of Christ. Yes, He tells that "You are sprouted, but you are wasted." It has to grow. And that's what yesterday I insisted that you pay full value to your ascent. You look after yourself, and grow into it. Then you will know what the power of love is. There is no ego about it. No, not at all. You don't feel the ego. What you feel is that it is flowing. It's flowing; wherever you go it's flowing. This power is flowing and that captures the whole atmosphere, the whole environment. If you people get your Realization, also all the global problems can be solved. Like you have got now very much pollution problem. The pollution gets settled down.This power of love can settle pollution because it also acts on the five elements. You'll be amazed how it acts on five elements.

Because it's all interwoven, we don't know that we are not singled out. We are not something separate from this universe. We are a part and parcel of the whole. But this feeling of part and parcel of the whole is not mental, it's not just our understanding, but this is what you experience all the time. Even small things or big things, in every way you really realize how everything is helping you so much.

But spiritual life is even better when you are meditating, otherwise your attention is going here, there, there, there because you are not awakened, you are not enlightened. But after some time when you have really become a Sahaja Yogi and just close your eyes and then you will find you are in that blissful state where you get rid of all problems, all worrying things and you just become silent, thoughtlessly aware - which Jung has described very clearly, that you have to become thoughtlessly aware, means you go beyond the thinking mind."
