Our truthfulness and honesty is all we will take with us
Service, remembrance and relationships with one another – all three should be elevated. Do such service that you give blessings to yourself and receive blessings, then you don't need to ask for blessings. When you stay in remembrance, you receive blessings, good wishes and a boon. Don't remember anyone else but Baba; then nobody will remember you. If someone is remembering me, it's my mistake. To think 'Oh, it's OK to remember that one' is a mistake. No matter how much work you do, it is the service you do that is the income you are earning.
May you be bodiless - beyond the consciousness of body. To be bodiless should be your natural practice, your nature. Otherwise you're not aware that body consciousness is working inside you and whatever you do - how you interact, speak, eat and drink, everything - is being done in body consciousness. Baba had total attention on the self, whilst observing everything. Baba said: Some children say they have 100% faith but what if someone were to die tomorrow? I am not afraid of dying. I'm ready to die. Why? I know we have to leave the body, having become satopradhan – with not the slightest tinge of rajo or tamo. That's why I'm ready.
Baba loves those who live like a lotus. The majority of you stay at home, yet there's no attachment. You do service of the yagya at home and sow your seeds. Whether staying here or at home, don't allow your intellect to be pulled by any bodily being. Each one's part, each one's story, is wonderful. Baba doesn't tell us to leave our homes but to let go of attachment. Attachment is very subtle. Think about what you are still attached to – is it the body, human beings, your home, the family?
Mothers say 'Baba is my first child, then there are the other children.' Does Baba not have anything, then? Baba is the Bestower, the Bestower of Blessings and the Bestower of Fortune. Our give and take is with the Bestower of Fortune and the Bestower of Blessings. To give to Baba means to receive so much. Whatever I hold onto for myself I will remember in the final moments and my status will be reduced. Nothing is mine. What will go with us, when we leave? Just our truthfulness and our honesty. We definitely will leave the body.
Just by pressing the lift button you go up and down. Staying in silence is like that. Everything happens by itself. I don't need to do anything except stay in silence. That's the power of silence. I'm not afraid of destruction but before destruction happens we are establishing - through our own lives - what the golden aged world of happiness will be like. Others are our companions who are going with us to heaven.
Who surrenders everything, who uses everything in a worthwhile way? Earlier I used to have a lot of expectations that souls should quickly do something to transform. Now I don't think anything but I don't let go of that hope that it will happen one day. The sound of faith from within is: everything will be fine – it will happen one day. There is 'no doubt'. It's guaranteed all will be well. Faith brings victory, while truth and honesty bring success. If you are holding on to any weaknesses, just say 'Baba, I am yours' and the weakness will go away. When there's honesty and no carelessness in my effort, there will be success. So let your effort be honest and truthful, and not superficial. Let every thought be filled with truth, every action with honesty. Have the feeling: I am the child of the One who is the Truth; He gives us Truth and makes us truthful. A child who is true is able to surrender to God - and then God will surrender Himself to that child. If my effort is sincere, Baba will give me a push to help me make that effort. When I am honest, I will do everything with zeal and enthusiasm. Do you honestly feel that you are a true child of Baba's?
Truth inside gives a lot of strength and the feeling that 'I don't need anything'. I want to leave the body in this way. In the golden age, we will leave the body and take another so easily – we're rehearsing for that now. The gates to Paramdham will open when we are all ready to go… We have to create our corporeal, avyakt and perfect stage now. Once created, whatever stage I reach will stay. So have the deep desire to create a powerful stage. Just be honest and happy. See how there's no one so happy as one who is truthful – they neither give or take sorrow. If I take sorrow, no matter how much another gives, that's my mistake. We have received blessings not to take or give sorrow. If you give or take sorrow, you don't experience blessings. But If you don't give or receive sorrow, you receive so many blessings, and you give yourself self blessings too.
Whatever you have to do, do it yourself - not through others. If you do good, everyone will benefit. There are so many good things for you to think about, pay attention to and put into practice. The One up above is getting everything done and whoever He does it through has their fortune created. Baba said to me once, when I was sick and unable to travel: You don't need to worry about anything; your fortune is in the Father's hands. You have such a fortune. So dance with that happiness.
