Peace In Every I

Do you want liberation? Make it strong in your mind; make it strong deep inside your heart. Let it get fulfilled on the outside. You are this light and you all can merge back into this light. You have to want it, and this want has to be very strong. It has to be the most important thing in your life. There are many Divine incarnations. They all come, they all teach, they all go. People at different times assimilate it in their own way. But we are living in such an age right now that it is very easy to attain Self-Realization. We just need to be simple with ourselves in the mind. When I say simple, I mean just to Love


Frost-bitten people walk with heads down
And the windows to their souls tightly shut.
Oh, man, if you could perceive the soul in
Its entirety, you would marvel at the
Creator’s Love and generosity in making
Humanity in His own image.

Mahavatar draws a circle and the sign
Of Peace in the dirt floor of his Cave,
Reminding us of the story of Christ
Writing in the sand just before the woman
Who would be stoned to death
Due to committed adultery:
"Let the one among you who is without sin
Be the first to cast a stone at her." (John 8: 7)
"Judge not, least ye also be judged,"
So said the Christ.

As Mahavatar writes in the dirt floor
We sit together like friends 
Peacefully watching the sun sink
 Behind the horizon of the high Himalayas,
As the blue-gold sunset
Fades into the purple twilight hour.
Peace is given by Mahavatar at times
When we most have the lack of it.

O womankind and mankind, kneel on your knees 
When nightfall comes to thank the Lord for your
Life, your day, your children, your sustenance
And your time on Earth given by Him at your
First breath and sustained daily in your time.

Worms in the Earth know their place and
Run away from the hoe and the plow.
So it is with humankind when they blow out the
Candle of Love in their hearts as life gets difficult.
Then many become disobedient and
Run away from the laws of the land
And the Creator of life and the all.

Bring yourself to the point of humbleness
And you will find Peace, just as
Mahavatar Babaji drew its image on his cave floor,
Reminding you that Peace of Mind comes with the
Understanding that all life comes from The Divine…
Within you.

If you want to be happy, you will be.
If you want sadness, you will have it.
If you want life to be lived in dharma,
You will have this in abundance.
If you want ice cream or healthy carrots
In your life, you will have what you desire.
If you want Peace, you will have peace.

Above all of this, if you have Love, 
You have God, and with God
All things are possible!
You, your own self, choose
What it is that you desire.

Choose God, Love and Dharma, 
Right action, and you will be
Happy Evermore!
