Further Soamiji says, “What is the whole creation? It is the expression of God. It all came out of Him. There is no place where He is not.”

The world, you see, is His expression only. The Masters give us an example: there is a tree that is a perfumed tree. When you rub a piece of the wood of that tree, it gives you perfume. Sandal, sandalwood, it is called. Soamiji says, “The whole world is a sandalwood tree.” It is said that the poisonous snakes are in contact with the sandalwood tree, lying around the tree – to give them some peace, or some satisfaction, you might say, or some cooling effect. When these snakes bite or sting somebody, the man who is stung feels like fire in that place, he gets a burning pain. Those snakes remain attached to the tree. Soamiji says, “If you want to have the juice of that tree, how will you have it? The only way is to cut the snakes with your sword and have the juice of the tree.” This is an example to show that this whole universe is the sandalwood tree – it is all God’s expression; but this delusion, the snake of delusion, is all around the tree. So what is the way out? How to rise above, come out of the delusion?

Soamiji says, “With the sword of ‘Gyan'”. What then is “Gyan”? “Knowledge”. “Gyan” is not just literary findings, but it is just rising above body-consciousness and coming in contact with the God-into-expression-Power and see Him. This is the true meaning of the word “Gyan”.

He says, “Take the sword of ‘Gyan'” – that is, rise above body-consciousness, – “and you will see. You will have that enjoyment of God within you.”

All Masters tell us how to come out of this delusion by rising above body-consciousness, which is the source of all delusion, because you are identified with the body, which is changing every moment of life; and the world around us, being made of matter, is also changing at the same rate as our body is changing. Because we are identified with this (body), the world appears to be stationary. If you come out of that delusion, you will find that your inner eye is open; you will see that it is all an expression of God outside. So, this is the way.

What will happen if you come in contact (with God), have a conscious, beatific vision of God? The result will be that all your sins which you have committed in the past up to this date, ever since you left the Father’s Home (Sach Khand), will be washed away.

He (Soamiji) gives an example: there are great stores of wood and if you just put a little fire in them, they will burn down to ashes. Similarly, you have got innumerable sins ever since you left the House of the Father. If you take a little bit of the light that the Master gives you, all of these sins will be burned away with it. The reason is that when you become a conscious co-worker of the divine plan, the ego is lost, who will suffer? In all other actions, good or bad, we are the doer: “As we sow, so shall we reap.” If you see that it is that Power which is working, not we, we are mere puppets in His hands, naturally there is nobody to bear the fruit of it. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” There is nobody to reap it because you have become a conscious co-worker of the divine plan. So, you can get that light from the Master. By coming in contact with that God-into-expression-Power, the two aspects of which are light and sound, you will burn away all your sins, accumulated ever since you have left the Father’s Home.

Masters always say, “Please, whatever you have been given, just stick to it like anything.” Now, Guru Ram Das says, “This is what the Master gives you.” And the Master – what is He? He is “Word made flesh.” He is light personified, He is sound personified. When you come near Him, that very thing which He personifies – the “Word made flesh” in its two aspects of light and sound – that radiates from the body of the Saint, the Master. If you just sit in that field or area and you become receptive, you will have that radiation. As is the case with perfumed flowers, if you sit by them – near them – you will get perfume, isn’t it so? Without touching them! If there is a room and you keep some perfumed flowers in it, the whole room will be perfumed. They say, “What to do? Just sit in the company, have a Satsang in the company of such Saints who are ‘Word made flesh’, and be receptive to them” not being like the man sitting in the church and thinking of the play-ground!

Pyramid of power and influence


 

Power, not sharing, destroys
Eats itself

Intelligence that annihilate life
Is soulless, cold

Experiments, without respect
Are abhorrent

Control that dominates
Is blind

Everything that hurts
Is thoughtless

Violence done to others
Has no compassion

Influence – self-loved
Feeds the ego

Life in this shadow
Has no sunshine, no life…

Reaching hearts


 

 

Not necessary to twist words
To hold whole lectures
Bend lips and tongues
When reaching a heart

Heart speaks with simple words
Touches you with light
A hug of love
Symphonie between hearts

Beams of light touch each other
Cosmic melody
A dance in Oneness
Vibrating happiness

Poem that find its way
Directly into the heart
Changing the beat
Song of two hearts

Happiness for you and me…

Human meeting


 

Sometimes a man and a woman meet
Like two galaxies approaching
Dancing, interwoven, embracing
Touching, becoming one

Or “go through” to each other
Continuing their star way
Within the universe of their lives

A meeting in time and space
