Peace has to come from the hearts of human beings

Kundalini becomes aware of itself
You start discarding the Superficiality

The Attention now has the sense – of Inner Morality, of Purity

Establish the Spirit within the core of the heart – where it manifests the bliss of Peace

Now how do you remove the thought from your mind is the problem, thoughts are all the time in your mind. The Kundalini when it rises, a thought rises and falls off and another thought rises and falls off, but when the Kundalini rises, then what happens, these thoughts become elongated and starts some working inside. And there is gap in between and this gap is the place of our peace. If you achieve that peace, the world peace can be achieved. By just taking placards, by shouting for peace you cannot establish peace; peace has to come from the hearts of human beings. In the hearts of human beings peace can be only established when you establish the spirit within it, its core where it manifests the bliss of peace. When you start enjoying the bliss of peace you don't want wars, you don't think of wars and that is the state where now the human beings have to rise and go to that.

Kundalini as we can call the Primitive, becomes aware of itself

So these horrible times here which we call as Kali Yuga, the modern times, which are the times of complete illusion and when all the value system is changed, where everybody seems to be unhappy and sick, is the time also preceding the Krita Yuga, the time where everything will be done, perfected and established, that's the meaning of Krita Yuga. So to begin with, primitive times which we call Krita Yuga are established again, the primitive is again established, but here with awareness like as I told you the matter becomes aware of itself. The Kundalini, which is a potential thing, which is a potential power of desire within us, which as we can call the primitive manifests itself and becomes aware of itself. That is what is Sahaja Yoga today. It's all Sahaja, it's all spontaneous, all life process has been spontaneous, but today that is what it is. So, spontaneously our attention becomes peaceful, absolutely peaceful, and when that peace is achieved, that peace is established within your heart through the ascent. Then, every bit of that peace emits peace. Such a person wherever he is, he emits peace wherever he is. If there is quarrel going on there will be peace.

With the Attention stationed on Balance - you start discarding the Superficiality

Even we have seen if there’s one person who is a realized soul in a train and if there is an accident everybody is saved, even one person. There are many examples where, in a bus there was one lady who was a realized soul, and the bus fell down with three somersaults, and it fell on its four legs and everybody was safe, and the thing started and they’ve tried to find out who was the realized soul, because in India we understand these things. We are more grown up in spiritual sensitivity than in the material sensitivity. You are very sensitive to material things, we should also learn something from you, I should say, but you should also learn something from us. And that is the spiritual sensitivity, to understand what serenity is and what superficiality is. So with this attention being absolutely stationed on a balance, you start seeing the superficiality and you start discarding the superficiality. You immediately see that this is superficial, there’s nothing in it and then the attention only accepts whatever is deep, whatever is Divine the rest of it is rejected. It doesn't accept, it doesn't react, it doesn't say anything about it, it doesn't accept, it has nothing to do with it, it is just separated.

The Attention now has the sense – of Inner Morality, of Purity

The attention keeps a distance from all superficial things; it has no enjoyment. I have seen many Sahaja Yogis who are here today who used to indulge in all kinds of things, all kinds of things, which I was amazed how could they go because they were men of God. But this situation is such, the atmosphere is such that they were like that, they had given up their parents, they had given up everything and had become really like vagabonds, I should say. But when they got their realization they settled down, everything settled down. And now they know, they don't go to those places now they just don't like it, they don't want to see it on the TV. If it’s on the TV they put it off. Because the attention has now the sense, the sense, I would say of purity, the sense of morality, which morality which we know of is hypocrisy outside. We are hypocritical, but this is inner morality which just keeps you moral. Inner quality, like Christ now, He would not do something filthy will He? Why? Why didn't He do anything? Like any other person, why was He not attracted to something that was not good? Because His attention was pure, it would not accept anything that was not pure. Like that, your attention becomes absolutely pure, your eyes become innocent. Your eyes do not have dirty ideas, lust and greed, but they have purity in them, and wherever you put your eyes that becomes purer. Wherever you look that becomes purer, you spread purity through your eyes, not lust and greed, you see. And this is something that must happen today because the time has come, our eyes are tired now, tired of looking at all horrible things. Let us now have those eyes who discard. Then why will they have dirty things? It's only we have created this filth. Once we discard it, it will all disappear. It’s our own creation, whom can we blame? Not the birds have done it, nor the tigers have done it, or the trees have done it. It's we, the human beings; we have done all this nonsense. If we get purified, everything will be purified.
