We are sustained by God's energy not by food alone:
Jesus testified that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4.) This memorable passage signifies that man's body does not depend only on external sources of life force—distillations from; breath, oxygen, sunshine, solids, and liquids—but also on a direct inner source of cosmic life that enters the body through the medulla, flowing then to the subtle centers in the brain and spine.
Unlike the ordinary man, the yogi realizes that his life is not conditioned by exhalation and inhalation, but that the steady life force in the brain is continuously reinforced through the medulla from the omnipresent cosmic current.
The breathless yogi, however, realizes the state of conscious "death" as a far deeper and more blessed state than that bestowed by the deepest blissful semi-superconscious sleep. When breath ceases in the Kriya Yogi, he is suffused with an incomparable bliss. He realizes then that it is the storm of human breath that is responsible for the creation of the dream wave of the human body and its sensations; it is breath that causes body consciousness.
By experiencing the reality of the body as prana or lifetrons, controlled by the thought of God, the yogi becomes one with Him.
A man sees himself in a dream; the power of his mind creates the consciousness of a real physical body. Similarly, by materializing His thought, the Lord has made dream men walking about a dream creation in dream bodies of flesh. The body is nothing but a materialized dream of God.
The Lord surrounded man's soul first with an idea body. Then He encased the idea body with a very fine or subtle light (the astral body). The third or final encasement was the electroatomic dream body, the illusion of a fleshly form.
The reason, therefore, that the Gita advises devotees to practice the pranayama life-control technique is to enable them to realize that the body is made not of flesh, but of life force condensed from the thought of God.
.....the truth in the Bible— that man's body-battery can live by the Word or vibratory current coming from God. The life in the body is directly sustained by the cosmic prana flowing through the medulla. Through the operation of maya or delusion, however, man believes that he cannot live without food and other outward aids. He becomes erroneously dependent on the gross sources of energy reinforcement through oxygen, sunshine, solids, and liquids. Man has formed a bad mortal habit in feeling that he cannot exist without a supply of energy from these material substances. That is why, if oxygen, sunshine, solids, and liquids are denied to the body, man's frightened consciousness permits the life force to depart.

“The Call of Time”
Do you constantly consider yourselves to be the direct Godly children of the highest-on-high Father and do you constantly remain in a powerful stage? Just as the Father is always powerful, have you also become constantly powerful? At present, since you are ever ready in advance, according to the challenge of time, the account of waste should only be in name according to the time. Just as there is the saying, "A pinch of salt in a sackful of flour", so the account of the powerful should be 99 per cent. Only then will you have a right to the 100 per cent satopradhan kingdom of the future new world. At present, the future kingdom, the kingdom of all of you, is invoking all of you. Who is being invoked? The souls who are full of all virtues and 16 celestial degrees full. You have to create your chart of the present time according to the time: To what extent is there something powerful and to what extent is there something wasteful? Keep a chart of your thoughts and time. In the timetable of the whole day, which account is greater? If, even now, the account of waste is 50 to 60 per cent, what period of the kingdom would you claim a right to then? Would you claim a right to the first kingdom of the golden age or the kingdom of the middle period of the golden age? Or, would it be the beginning of the silver age? Only those who have a right over their thoughts and time at the present time are able to claim a right to the kingdom of the beginning period. Only those souls who have all rights are able to receive respect from all the souls of the world in the beginning satopradhan period.
First there is self-sovereignty and then there is world sovereignty. Those who are not able to be self- sovereigns are not able to claim a right to world sovereignty. Therefore, now check yourself. Become introverted and think of your original self. The riddle of, "Who am I?", was explained to you on your first day. Therefore, according to your complete stage and according to your elevated position (stage), now check: What am I? You now have to solve this riddle. You can know yourself through your stage throughout the day as to whether you have a right to the beginning period or whether you have a right to the middle period of the golden age. Since you have the aim of claiming a right to the beginning period, then, according to that aim, let your present be constantly powerful. Together with the churning of knowledge, it is also most essential for you to check your stage. Am I content with myself in my daily account of accumulation? Or, will you even now say that you haven't accumulated as much as you should have? This should not be the result now. How can those who are not content with themselves become those who make all souls of the world content? At the beginning of the golden age, let alone souls, even nature is content because it is perfect. So, become jewels of contentment. Do you understand what you have to do now?
You have been serving up to now according to the facilities for service that you have. You have been doing this with love and have been making a lot of effort. Your zeal and enthusiasm is also very good. However, together with doing service, there has to be service of the world and service of the self. Be merciful to the world and also merciful to yourself. Both have to be together. Do not wait for time, thinking that you will become perfect by then. Since you tell other souls not to put anything off till tomorrow, but to do it today, not to put anything off to some other time, but to do it now, so, first also talk to yourself in the same way. Are you ever ready to this extent? Do you constantly have the awareness: "If not now, then never"? Have a conversation with yourself in this way. Achcha. You have been told a great deal. What does the Father want now? Now is not the time to tell you anything, but the time to see it. The Father wishes to see each jewel complete and perfect. Do you understand?
To those who understand through signals, to those who let their listening and doing be the same, to those who maintain constantly powerful remembrance of the Almighty Father, to the souls who stay in a powerful stage, to the elevated souls who are embodiments of success, BapDada's love, remembrance and namaste.
BapDada meeting Dadis:
Everyone becomes happy on seeing the maharathis. Why are they happy? Because, like the sakar Father, in front of everyone, the maharathis are complete and elevated in their corporeal form. This is why even the Father is happy on seeing them because they are equal. Seeing those who are equal, there is happiness. It is only at the confluence age that the Father seats His children on the throne of service. This system of the confluence age will, through your own hands, enable you to be seated on the throne in the future. In an incognito way, the Father observes the children seated on the throne and also co-operates with them. However, it is the children that He seats on the throne in the practical form. This system begins from this time.
Baba is Karankaravanhar; He has played the part of Karanhar (One who does) and is now playing the part of Karavanhar (One who does through others). Because this is the Father’s throne, you do not experience it to be a burden to be seated on the throne. It is the Father’s throne, after all, and the Father, Himself, seated you on the throne. The throne of being an instrument is so easy! The throne is special; this throne is filled with such special magic that anything difficult becomes easy in a second. According to the time and according to the drama, the throne of being an instrument is remembered as being very elevated and full of total success. Whosoever sits on this throne becomes an embodiment of success. The throne has this eternal and original blessing. Only souls who know the deep secrets filled with significance are able to be seated on this throne. Even at present, BapDada sees the maharathis as being seated on a double throne. You are seated on the heart throne anyway, but very few attain the throne of becoming instrument. This too is a very deep secret. Achcha.
Meeting Madhuban resident brothers:
Madhuban resident brothers have heard a great deal. Does anything still remain for you to hear? You heard BapDada personally; you heard the revised course, so what else remains to be heard? Have you released as many arrows as you are filled with? Madhuban residents have a chance to do three types of service. For which service do you have a special chance? The blessing for the means of easy service for the Madhuban residents is having the support of this land of blessings, the land of divine activity. When you relate the praise of the divine activity of this land to any soul, it is the same as when souls are more interested in listening to the Bhagawad than to the Gita, so the residents of Madhuban have the means to relate their practical experiences. When you give the introduction of this place and its divine activities, souls begin to dance in happiness. People come here especially to know and experience the land of divine activity. So, you Madhuban residents can serve through this Bhagawad and relate what happens here. Therefore, you are instruments to relate the importance of the specialty of this place. If you attract souls to the Father with the same vision with which they look at each of you jewels, then, how much service can that do? Whilst sitting here, the subjects and the family can be created. The guides of the Taj Mahal relate the history of the Taj Mahal in such an entertaining way. So, if you too relate the divine activities in the same way, people will remember it very easily and you will receive the fruit of that service. If you tell whomsoever comes the importance of this land whilst you are stable in that stage of importance and, if you speak with happiness, enthusiasm and deep love, you can receive a lot of fruit. By doing this type of service, you will experience a lot of happiness. So, there is service, remembrance and attainment. So what more do you want? You Madhuban residents are very lucky.
This year, what is required is the balance between the self and service. Together with service, the influence of your own personality and the influence of your being an embodiment of dharma will be like the final touch on a golden ornament. Whosoever sees you should experience you to be an embodiment of knowledge and an embodiment of virtues. The equality of the two should be visible. As yet, the sound that emerges is that the knowledge is very elevated, but that your activity is not like that. By your paying attention to keeping a balance between these two, both subjects and heirs will become visible. You have many means of service. You have not yet reached the religious leaders; that will be the last battle through which the sound will spread in all directions. It will happen through aspects of knowledge, just as your name will be glorified through proving who the God of the Gita is. For this, create small groups and make them co-operate with you. You had a students' competition and you then selected one out of all of them. So, there should be small groups at all the places and a gathering of all of them at one place. Then your name will be glorified. This is the year for glorifying your name. Achcha.
Avyakt Elevated Versions - Become a master bestower:
BapDada now wants each child to become a master bestower. Give to others what you have taken from the Father. Do not have any desire to take from souls. Become merciful and co-operate with your virtues and powers. Be generous hearted. The more treasures you give to others, the more your treasures will increase.
Perishable treasures decrease by giving, whereas imperishable treasures increase; give one and receive one thousand-fold. A master bestower is one who is constantly full and overflowing. The perfect idols, who are full of the treasures of experience, will automatically become master bestowers. Bestowers are servers. Bestowers cannot stay without giving to others. With their virtue of being merciful, they give courage to some and power to other weak souls. They are master bestowers of happiness. Always remain aware that you are the children of the Bestower of Happiness, master bestowers of happiness. Those who are bestowers would definitely have within themselves whatever they bestow, for only then would they be able to give. If some people don't have anything to eat themselves, how can they be bestowers? Therefore, as is the Father, so should be the children. The Father is called the Ocean. An ocean means unlimited, that which has no end. In the same way, you are master oceans, not rivers or ponds. So, continue to give selflessly, just as the Father does. At the time of peacelessness, become master bestowers of peace and give peace to others; do not be afraid. You know that whatever is happening is good and that whatever is to happen will be even better. Human beings are influenced by the vices and will continue to fight. This is what they do all the time. However, your duty is to give peace to such souls, because you are world benefactors. World benefactor souls, as master bestowers, constantly give to others! “I can only become perfect and complete when others co-operate”. It should not be like that. Instead of taking in this way, become a master bestower, have compassion and give love and co-operation; this giving is actually receiving. Remember that Brahmin life means to give and thereby receive.
At present, everyone needs imperishable happiness. All are beggars of happiness, whereas you are the children of the Bestower. The duty of the children of the Bestower is to give. Distribute happiness to whosoever comes into contact or relationship with you. Become so full that no one who comes to you returns empty. Souls of the entire world will now come in front of you and beg for peace and happiness. You children of the Bestower must become master bestowers and make everyone prosperous. Therefore, fill all your treasure-stores with all treasures in advance so that no one who comes to you will return empty handed, but will return having become full. You will experience this as you progress further. At the confluence age, you elevated souls should become limitless and constantly great donors. Always remain aware that you are a child of the Bestower, a constantly great donor. Any soul who comes in front of you, whether a Brahmin or one without this knowledge, you definitely have to give something or other to everyone.
A king means a bestower. If you have limited desires or desires for attainment, then, instead of being a king, you become a beggar. You are the children of the Bestower, elevated souls filled with all treasures. The indication of being full is to be a limitless great donor. Such a soul cannot stay, for even a second, without donating. Brahmin souls already have knowledge, but you have to become bestowers for them in two ways. Firstly, whatever power souls need, use your mind, that is, your pure attitude and vibrations, to donate that power to them; that is, co-operate with them. Secondly, through the activity of your life, constantly be an embodiment of virtues. Become a practical sample and co-operate with others so that they can imbibe virtues easily. This is known as donating virtues. To donate means to co-operate. Achcha.
Blessing: May you be a soul who has all rights and who transforms the stage of being influenced with the power of concentration.
Brahmins, that is, souls with all rights can never be influenced by anyone, not even influenced by their own weak nature or sanskars because nature (swa-bhav - nature of the self), is to have the feeling of soul consciousness for the self and others. Therefore, they cannot be influenced by a weak nature. By having the awareness of their original and eternal sanskars, their weak sanskars are easily transformed. The power of concentration enables them to transform the stage of being influenced and sets them on the seat of the stage of a master.
Slogan: Prepare subjects and heirs by having a balance of an embodiment of knowledge and an embodiment of virtues.
