Comment Yesterday's entry August 12, 2010, "Controlling Mind: Humans Use Only 5%": Dearest Babaji, what about karmic things, which are awakening inside of us during the practice [of Atma Kriya]? I am trying not to hang on it and offer it to the Divine, but there is still pain in the heart, and tears are flowing incessantly... how to deal with this?
Mahavatar Babaji: Please allow me to congratulate the one commenting. You know that I know who my questioners are, and I know that you, in the vernacular of this time and place, “can take a compliment” with a pure heart! You have imbibed the lessons of your teacher, Swami Vishwananda, so well that you write your comment in the same terms he speaks his teachings! I hear you; I understand you and your question. I send my eternal love wrapped in disguise for you alone in the words on this page. Others will read their own message, for indeed, when I speak, it is for everyone! How can it be otherwise? My Father and I are One. You and I are One. We all are One.
“What about karmic things?” Indeed, an opening heart that is awakening to Divine Unconditional Love fully, often may cry bhakti tears when memory cells open to the True Reality. This purification of the karmic things is a process of opening the mind as well as the heart. For as Swami Vishwananda said in the VBV entry of which you speak: “…every day the mind is very much focused so that the focused mind makes it happen. This happens by learning to control the mind. It’s true that you create your own universe. You create your own world and your own reality, because this is the power of the mind.”
The mind is your vahana, even as Garuda is the vahana of Maha Vishnu, that conveys the meaning of life and the memory cells which can lead you to opening the heart to Divine Love. Appreciate the mind and be grateful for its service, and let it be your servant rather than your master. You must learn to control the mind to transcend karmic things and the cycle of birth and death. This is the true path of a Yogi, for controlling the mind is the royal pathway to the kundalini awakening in the Muladhara Chakra of the human spine, which, with the correct combination of Divine Love, Commitment and Intensity, becomes one’s vahana which conveys one through enlightenment’s door.
Let the tears flow,
Let the heart pain come,
Oh beloved people of Earth.
Fly like Garuda, Maha Vishnu’s vahana,
Into the ethers of freedom flight.
And like the Phoenix rising from the ashes
Of Earthbound karmic bondage,
You may bring with you
Only that which has been purified
In the Fire of burning, stinging
Transformational Divine Light.
Rise to the height of Mt. Everest in the sacred
And royal Himalayan Mountain Range,
The highest point on this jewel called Earth.
And go beyond even that. . .
To Heavenly dimensions beyond
This world of strife and incredible beauty,
And wondrous, magnificent, golden, Divine Light
Secretly hidden in the heart of man!
These karmic things must be purified.
You decide by controlling your mind just
How long this journey’s embodiment will be,
And likewise the stinging, burning, bhakti tears
Your paining heart transforms.
Then let your bhakti tears wash karmic things
Into Cosmic, eternal Divine Light
From whence you came and shall Return. . .
One golden day, Somewhere. . .Somewhen.
It is Written—It Is So—Let it Be
Forever and Ever—Amen and OM.
