You have to challenge the past

We try to do our level best, but still sometimes you feel that there can be some mistakes we might have committed. But it is not for you to be upset about it. Because once you have reached the shores of joy then you should not give it up for anything. Because it is your choice whether you want joy or you want unhappiness. Now in this Guru Puja I felt everybody reached a very great height of achievement and have become the joy itself. Now whatever your past was, whatever mistakes you might have committed in the past in your ascent or whatever might have happened in the past because of others, to you, is all lost in the past, the ocean of the past.
So the judgment will come from you to yourself. "Am I still involved in the past that was last, that was yesterday, is finished now? Am I even now bothered about it? "  And your Mother will also sometimes test you on that.  Sometimes I may remind you of some mistake of yours and then see what happens to you. And then I will know where are My children. Now you have become the fruit, which is ripe. So why should you worry about things which you are not anymore? Now if you have become a full fledged bird why should you worry about the egg that used to smell so badly. So this is the attitude one must have towards oneself, the confidence within yourself. So that's how you challenge your past, and now you can even challenge your future. Now start thinking what can happen to us, supposing. Which is very, very common nature of the western people. Yes, because if you tell somebody, "Now, will you please go and telephone to that person", immediately that person will tell you, "Perhaps he may not be there. (Laughter) Now let me see what's the time. This is the time he has to go out, so he must have gone out." (Laughter) But why don't you telephone? And you telephone and the fellow is there. This is the western style of futuristic explanations of everything.
