Mahavatar Babaji: The snake is representative of many Ayurvedic and spiritual emblems placed upon the awakening humanity’s ever marching forward tread. The sight of a snake holds fear for many. By the time, from time out of mind, that man arrives into the oasis of that called the Golden Era; the snake no longer will be a form to be feared. Today, you all are moving at a fast pace in your material world, and many of you are making progress on your spiritual path as well.
Toward what are we going? We know that physical existence one day will be no more for the present body. We know also that we never die. So why, at this stage of the Earth game, are so many searching in many traditions and all walks of life for the illusive I, the Self, one’s own enlightenment, the golden ring of eternal life, and the atma goal of liberation? The Divine deems it so! It simply is time as the cycles of time come and go throughout the ages of man on Earth. When the wheels of time stop spinning eventually, and you all will live in the present, these dark ages will be history. And some of you will remember this life and this time.
Progress on one’s spiritual path comes with the hard-won gifts of peace of mind and unconditional love for everyone. You will see God in the eyes of man, and animal, the minerals, the plants and the All. The lamb will lie down with the lion and all shall walk in freedom to be! I encourage you to look forward for a moment, with your feet fixed firmly in the present. Dear ones, your survival is assured! Do not worry for the changes that are occurring upon the planet at this time: the changes in nature, the world-wide stock market ups and downs, illness, the opium dens of the world, the oil barons, the rich, the poor, the homeless, the addicted, and all the ups and downs of life. When these worries weigh heavy upon the heart, mediate, do your Atma Kriya and pray, chant the Divine names and feel free. Soar with Garuda into the wild blue yonder and retrieve your birthright of freedom of the atma, the soul, by attaining God here and now in your time. Never before has it been so easy to attain God. Why? He has willed it to be so. It is time you all define your readiness to exist in peace and love.
Let me tell you something of great importance. I see you all, I know your habits, and I know your individual hearts. You moan to your Guru that there is not enough time for your spiritual sadhana. Yet, I see you spend hours on the Internet and in front of the television screens, and in all manner of activities in the material. Yes, you do work for your living, many have homes and children. I view it all. I am not here to condemn or condone anything that you do. I am here to guide you to the Divine, to unconditional love, that which you are in truth, and to teach you how to get there. Your Guru is the same as I am. When Christ said, “My Father and I are one”, he indeed could have been speaking of us, and we are One in our purpose for being on the planet. It is for you that we come. You may choose freely to go about your life as you please. If you truly wish to advance on the spiritual path, rest assured that you will find time for your sadhana the same way you find time for the Internet, the television, and so many things and people in your life.
Krishna said, “Out of Compassion for them, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance”. – Bhagavad Gita 10.1 "Awaken, Oh ye of little faith”, cried the Christ to the multitudes who were concretized in their thinking of that day. John the Baptist cried in the wilderness, along with Christ, “Oh ye hypocrites, come unto the Father and be set free.” (Babaji)—‘I am a voice calling to you from the wilderness of your own soul. Come home; set yourself free from the materialistic world view’ “Christ said: “Be in the world and not of it”. “What do you have when you have God”, Swami Vishwananda asks? Someone from the audience answers , and then he responds, “Yes, Everything”! That is a great truth.
Do you want God? We have given you, for centuries, the formulas to attain the Divine. Krishna was here among you over 5,000 years ago! To assist you in attaining the Divine is our purpose in being here with you. Are you listening? Do you want God? If so, you must do your part. I ever am with you. –Babaji
