Spiritual practice / Drill for mind and Constant Attention & Awareness of Love, Lightness and Easiness
1. Avy.murli 16.10.69
Come into action/thought one second. And go beyond thought/sound/body next. This is possible when you perform actions being detached.
With this practice you will be able to face any situation. This has to be practiced throughout the day but special practice during amritvela.
This practice helps you to detach from all the attractions/pull of mind (from being lost in love) during the final test paper.
2. Avy.murli: 20.10.69
Just remember point and One to reach completion. No need to go in to expansion. (By not going into expansion, keeping 3 to 4 thoughts per minute, we feel lightness)
The unawareness of point creates past sanskars, past karmic bondage, present forgetfulness. These wastes make easy into difficult.
When there is awareness, there is easiness and completion. When there is no awareness, there are many obstacles.
When you make the awareness strong (constant), unawareness disappears on its own. When the sun never sets, darkness cannot appear.
3. Avy.murli 1.11.1969
There should be balance of love and power. Detachment and sweetness together at the same time. Karmateet and complete stage does not have just power but also love. Even thoughts have to be applied full stop in a second.
4. Avy. Murli 17.11.69
The hard sanskars make the spiritual effort difficult. If sanskars have become easy, all actions become easy (detached). To be attractive, you need to be happy (smiling) in body and mind, to swing in bliss controlling nature and maya. When you get attracted to something, you never become attractive.
1. Along with power and love, there should be concentration being free from waste thoughts.
In one Avyakt Murli Baba says, In final stage you would become free from waste thoughts.
This concentration without waste thoughts makes you feel an unlimitedness in awareness or it is like being connected with the cosmic mind.
1. There has to be both heat-power (authority) and flexibility- humility in equal amount well balanced to mould nature with easiness.
Even if either of one is more or less, it is not perfect stage and become less attractive in nature.
Only those who have love for every soul can remain humble.
Remain detached every moment even of service. Only when you are in bodiless stage, remain liberated from body for a long time, you will pass with honour in the final test paper of less than a second.
Remain detached and loving.
2. Even plans would become successful when there is plain remembrance.
1. See, think self as soul and see, think others as soul.
Not to see or remember anything physical.
Avy.murli 16.10.69 on Power to see and Power to Discern:
1. The important method to experience power to discern is bodiless stage or remembrance or soul consciousness along with purity of intellect/mind, when there is no waste or sinful thoughts but remembrance of only One and His task with Concentration.
2. Waste and sinful thoughts are obstacles to realize bodiless stage. To avoid coming into attraction of body keep the intellect clean. Thoughts make the intellect weak and so cannot discern distancing yourself from success.
3. When you look at the soul in others, vision and attitude will become pure.
4. Those who practice coming into sound/thoughts/body in a second and go beyond next can face any situation. Practice this at amritvela and whenever intellect becomes very busy. This is possible when you do all actions being detached and easy with lost in love for God.
Note: The essence of spirituality is to remain constantly detached (with self awareness) in all interactions with people and things, with constant love for God. Not succumbing to the pull of senses.
1. Bodiless stage: awarenes of soul as point of light and also awareness of body/garb of light.
Stage freight / anxiety may be due to fear or defence mechanisms activated by amygdala - automatic in nature.
To overcome, go to the depths of fear caused by various situations like the habit of giving more respect to people, certain formal behaviours and attitudes created or imposed by gathering or people.
By removing all unwanted respects like, “it caused by the oppressor in the oppressed”, are to be identified and make those attitudes and habits normal by practice and change in thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.
This will help remove various masks(personalities) developed since childhood leading to deep relaxation and easiness with people and situation including stage freight caused by anxiety, people and formal behaviour of people and situations.
All attachment (even of close relative) disappears when you see the person as you see or love your neighbour instead of thinking they are your own.
Vision and Attitude
Sakar murli: The Father explains: Consider yourselves to be souls and look at others with the vision of brotherhood. Then, when you give knowledge to anyone, there will be power in your words. It is souls that become pure and impure.
It has also been explained to you: Look at others with the vision of brotherhood and you won’t notice their bodies. Your vision will then not be spoilt. This is the destination.
Note: feel the soul on third eye and look at others through third eye with less number of thoughts. Seeing through third eye means 100% concentration and it gives power to words. Seeing through 3rd eye gives expanded unlimited vision where you never see any particular person or body. (practice this with easiness without any strain).
Sakar murli: The more effort you make to become soul conscious, the more your physical organs will be controlled. There is only the one method “of remembrance” to control your physical organs.
Even the power and lightness is not to be experienced but to be felt naturally becoming the point of consciousness.
Deep Meditation Experience
In deep meditation, completely focused on 3rd eye, eyes closed, like moving up through 3rd eye, towards paramdham, Sambhavi mudra, there are visions of water everywhere and movement of buildings.
Although Baba pulls and attracts the children when they are sitting in yoga in the morning, He pulls them numberwise. In remembrance, you sit in peace and you even forget the world, but the question arises: What do you do throughout the whole day?
The Father pulls you more early in the morning. He is the ever pure Magnet, and so He pulls you. The Father is unlimited. He understands that you are very lovely children. So He pulls you even more strongly.
See but don’t see – remain in the awareness of lightness
Sweet children, you have to become karmateet before returning home. This is why no flaw should remain inside you. Continue to examine yourselves and remove any weaknesses you have.
Question:In order to create which stage is effort required? What is the effort you have to make for that?Answer:Anything you see with your eyes should not appear in front of you. Even while seeing, do not see. Even while living in your bodies, remain soul conscious. It takes time to create this stage. Your intellects must not remember anything except the Father and the home. To attain this stage, become introverted and examine yourselves. Keep your own chart.
You have to create such a stage that whatever you see with those eyes should not appear in front of you. Your intellects should not remember anything other than the Father and the land of peace.
The Father says: For as long as you stay in remembrance and do service, you will receive power. Also, even if some are in bondage and are unable to do service, they definitely receive a lot of yoga power through their remembrance. Everything is merged in remembrance.
If there is the feeling of “mine” even in your thoughts, then you must understand that you have become dirty. Finish this burden of the consciousness of “mine” and become double light.
Slogan:The lights of the world are those who merge BapDada in their eyes.
Spiritual awareness and attitude
1. When we become spiritual, although we see physical, the awareness and experience never becomes physical but feel light and non-physical.
2. The third eye becomes the seer and hearer not the eyes or ears.
3. Although eyes see physical objects, consciousness never get attached or focused on physical objects.
4. There has to be constant awareness of third eye to see or feel others as energy beings not physical beings.
5. You understand/know/notice clearly when your consciousness move from spiritual to physical and hence you bring it back to spiritual.
6. When you see, you see the whole, a bigger view when you are spiritual not particular person or objects, mostly awareness of light.
7. When you see physical objects in particular, you become physical. "You become like what you look into".
8. Whether it is seriousness, entertainment, speech, walk, talk, action or meditation, silence, inaction, sleep, all the time and always maintain / experience lightness (love of God).
9. Dadi Prakashmani had once said to dr.s.gupta that those who come in first eight will have remembrance in every breath.
How it is possible?
By being light every moment, it is possible.
True Tapaswis – Real Spiritual Effort
Children who are always merged in the ocean of love, happiness, peace and bliss are true tapaswis.
Along with being a tapaswi, not to focus on anything physical to avoid losing self awareness and connection of God's power.
Not to focus the consciousness on anything physical to avoid feeling physical.
See everything but remain self conscious. Don’t attach conscious to physical.
Constantly feel the love, power and bliss of God, being self tolerant constantly in every breath, not losing sight/ feeling of self consciousness.
Not to see or think or feel anything other than truth. Truth is constant combined self and God consciousness.
1. Soul consciousness means detached from world, forget everything of world to stabilize in bliss and joy of God's love.
2. For this remain detached all the time and attach with the world of objects / mind only for name sake.
Blessing: May you be a completely enlightened soul who finishes Maya’s power with the power of love.
To be merged in love is to have full knowledge. Love is the blessing of Brahmin life. At the confluence age, the Ocean of Love gives you platefuls of diamonds and pearls, and so you become filled with love. A situation like a mountain is transformed by the power of love and becomes as light as water. No matter how fearsome or royal the form that Maya takes to oppose you is, become merged in the Ocean of Love in a second and Maya’s power will be finished by your power of love.
The real spiritual effort – Constant attention of lightness of self and love of God
It is found that the lightness and sweetness, love of God is experienced by being aware of self as a point, without any awareness of body, especially own body. And this lightness need not be seen as a physical smile in the face but subtle lightness and sweetness within the mind/intellect. When this subtle lightness – love of God is maintained constantly, we can overcome lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. Even if we get lost for a moment, we would overcome by any of the vices and if we remember the lightness and love, immediately we can shift our consciousness from anger to lightness, but by the time, we would have expressed the vice.
Hence, it is found, unless we have constant awareness of self and God, one way or other we get lost in vices. The main spiritual effort is to keep the light lit constantly, keep the internal subtle smile, lightness, love of God constantly with self awareness. And this constant attention and effort is the real spiritual practice that will keep us safe from the five vices.
