HOW MANY ENERGIES ARE THERE?
I DO NOT LOVE, I AM LOVE
The limitation is of the finite mind, and the finite mind can only comprehend the finite, and yet when we talk of love, it is so infinite. So why involve yourselves in the level of emotions which is limited?
Love is a living reality, moment to moment, to moment, to moment. Every moment should be filled with that love. Where is that love? Where does it reside in you? In your head or your toe. No. No. That love comes from above (inside). You see the beauty of Grace, the Grace of the Divine, the Grace of the infinity of which you are the totality, and if you are the totality of love, why miss it? Are we not damned fools to miss that which is, for love is. It cannot be contrived. It cannot be conjured. It cannot be put together in pieces. It is, it is and is and is, and we need to recognise that which is, for love is.
Why do we escape from it? Why do we escape the inherent right we have that is within us? Every cell of your body cries out for love, and you want to be loved; that is human nature. That is where the mind starts working. You want reciprocation. If anyone asks me, “Do you love?” I say, “No, I do not love. I am love.” For discovering the I am-ness of love, you are finding the I am-ness of yourself and the I am-ness is yourself; it is Divine, Divinity itself. Is God not love? And is love not God? You see how simple it is. There is so much beauty, and I wonder why my children suffer.
WHY SUFFER WHEN YOU ARE THE PRODUCT OF JOY?
Why is there suffering in this world? Why should there be suffering in this world when you are the product of joy? Are you not the manifestation of the Manifestor? What are the mechanics of your suffering? The mechanics of your suffering stems not from your Heart. The mechanics of your suffering stem from your mind that thinks it is suffering, and yet is that mind thinking or is that mind thinking that it feels? And what is thinking? What is thought? What is the process of thought? Freud could not describe the thought process, Adler could not describe it, and Jung could not either.
I have challenged hundreds of Professors worldwide on the subject, “What is thought?” Thought is only a reproduction of patterns embedded in the recesses of your brain.
CONTROLLING THE SENSES WILL CAUSE REPRESSIONS AND INHIBITIONS WITHIN
What do we do? What is the answer? How shall we do it? The recesses of your brain, the various patternings of the brain, contain those impressions which interpret themselves into thought patterns in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind translates them to the conscious mind, and the conscious mind translates them into physical realities through the senses: seeing, smelling, touching, tasting, and hearing.
Where do we start? Are we going to start by controlling the senses? Are we going to start by controlling our hearing? Are we going to start by controlling our smelling, seeing, touching and all that? You cannot.
That is the greatest mistake of modern Psychologists because they know nothing of the human mind. We do not start there, for if you control any sense organ of yours, hearing, touching, smelling, whatever, you will cause repressions and inhibitions within yourself, which will manifest again in some way or the other. So, you are curing a headache and producing a toe ache, so that is not the answer. We have to infuse the conscious mind, which provokes the senses because the senses can only be provoked through the conscious mind, which turns back to the subconscious with all its impressions and, in turn, translates them into daily living.
WE DRAW FROM THE SUPERCONSCIOUS LEVEL OF OURSELVES
The answer is so simple, and the answer is that if the tea is bitter, put in a teaspoon of sugar. That is all, and where does that sugar come from? That sugar comes not from the conscious mind, from the subconscious mind, but from a far deeper level within yourself; it comes from the Superconscious Mind, which, in other words, means “The Kingdom of Heaven within.” Everyone has it in totality, but why do we not draw from that vast reservoir, from that superconscious level, so that it could permeate, infiltrate the subconscious, the conscious, and then our actions in life?
Teachers will teach you from various angles. Why from the outside in and not from the inside out? Is there any energy from the outside? Or is there more incredible energy from the inside out? We draw from that superconscious level of ourselves; we draw from it, for the reservoir is yours; it is there just to draw from so that it can permeate every cell of our body. Then, the question becomes questionless. I do not love; I am love because the entirety of that Universal Self of the superconscious level is permeating every cell of our being.
WE DO IT BY OUR SPIRITUAL PRACTISES
When you cry and say, “No one loves me, I cannot love anyone.” Is that not the height of stupidity? How do we do this? This is theory, right? We do this through our spiritual practices, where we dive deep within and draw from that Force, from that Divine reservoir of infinite energy, into every aspect of our life. What more is there? Is there anything more? What more can there be? What more can be more critical than finding Divinity within us? And seeing that Divinity within us is to find that love, and in finding that love, we find God.
YOU ARE DIVINE; YOU ARE THE MANIFESTATION OF THE MANIFESTOR
You see, my beloveds. My eyes get filled with tears when I look at your faces. Why do you suffer when your inherent right is joy, joy, joy, joy? You are Divine. You are the personification of Divinity. You are the manifestation of the Manifestor, and if you are the manifestation of the Manifestor, how can you be apart from the Manifestor? You are the incarnation, the expression; you are the fragrance of the flower; you are the heat of the fire. So next time we sit and think of all our problems, know that the smallness, the inability, the incapacity, and the finiteness of your little mind create these problems.
When you go beyond that little mind that creates these problems, you find the infiniteness which is problemless. Why do you cause me all this suffering in seeing you suffering? For God’s sake, why? When you are infinite and delving in this little finiteness when you are so infinite. The entire universe is contained within you; the whole universe is you. Nothing else exists but you. And you, in your you-ness, has everything else. So beautiful. Where do we go from here? To that infinitude, which is our birthright, or do we return to our little shells of finitude? Everyone is that beautiful butterfly, and our teachings are based upon one principle: to get out of that cocoon and emerge like that beautiful butterfly, so free. And yet, we want to remain in the bondage of the cocoon. Does that deserve you? Oh, Gods on earth, children of God, Divinity itself, the expression of that which is Divine, why suffer this?
Why suffer this? For suffering is not your life. Suffering is not you; as the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, it becomes an offering, not suffering. So, the point in question is that today’s humankind is undergoing a delusion, deluded by their thoughts, deluded by their minds, deceived by their patternings, deluded by their impressions, which are impressed upon their subconscious mind, and that is the cause of delusions. We can go beyond these delusions and know, realise, and recognise that “I am Divine.” In my Divinity as the manifestation of the Manifestor, I can merge back as the Manifestor and manifestation into the Manifestor. It is so simple.
HOW MANY ENERGIES ARE THERE?
When you realise that as a manifestation, you can merge back into the Manifestor, then you become the Manifestor. Then you can say, “I and my Father are one,” for you have never been separated from the Father. How can you exist, how can you live, how can you lift an arm if you are separated from the Manifestor? That is the one energy that exists in this universe.
How many energies are there? One energy, my beloveds. One energy, the energy of the Divine, and to realise and experience that energy is life’s aim and goal. Where else can you go? Where have you come from, where are you going to, and where are you now? Tell me. You came from nowhere and are going nowhere, but you are here and now in the energy of Divinity, for the energy of Divinity is only now; it is not of the past and never of the future.
You measure things in time and space. I do not. There is no past, no future, only now, and measuring things in time and space is only conceptual; it is a conception of your mind. But in reality, it is all here, all now. He is here, present in its fullness, with us, now, now, now. That Divinity is now, always now, always here and nowhere else except here for you; that energy works in various expressive forms for you.
THAT WHICH IS DIVINE BRINGS JOY, PEACE AND BLISS
So let not the mind confound you. Let not the mind bind you, for is the purpose of life bondage or is the purpose of life freedom? And what do you want to be free from? What do you try to free yourself from? You free yourself – hold my hand – you free yourself from your mind, the mind that befuddles, the mind that brings about all these troubles, the mind that confuses. And going beyond the expression of the mind, let us instead realise the expression of that which is Divine, for that brings joy, peace, and limitless bliss. All is Divine, and these are the representatives of Divinity that came to show you the path – Krishna, Buddha, Mother Mary and Christ. But how much have you damned well learnt? That is why I am here now.
