A smile directed towards Divinity is a great motive power of change.
You live in a world created by yourselves, your perception, thoughts, opinions and judgments. All this whirls around human bodies as the vortices of mental energies. “I” or individual self is the axis of this “vortex.” Now I will show you a simple method leading to release from the burdens of the body, from the earthly thinking and leading to transformation and union with the inner love.
Begin with a simple meditation. Sit comfortably and start to breathe evenly. Keep smiling to the Creator. Once the mind gets somewhat quietened, turn to the loving Divinity asking that it guides you and looks after the whole process of transformation. Then turn with the heart and mind towards tender Divinity. Imagine it to be as close to you as possible and stay in its Divine Energy.
Whenever some thoughts, memories or pictures come, gently brush them aside saying quietly “It is not me,” “It is not me,” and continue turning towards God. Keep on smiling all the time to Divinity. It is very important. Whatever appears, no matter how strong and violent it may be, gently turn your attention away from it and turn it towards Divinity, saying with a smile, “It is not me.”
Practise like so for ten to twenty minutes. Teach the mind to enter into the state of inaction and silence, into the state of relinquishment of thoughts, not developing them, not entertaining any thoughts coming but turning towards the Divine Love, goodness and kindness. Then transfer this state into what you do every day.
When you feel disharmony in contact with anyone or anything, move away from this reaction and turn to God trying to stay with Him with a smile all the time. Be gentle to yourselves, be pleasing to God and treat Him well, as a dear friend does.
Moving away from “oneself” in the direction of Divinity is taking the path of spiritual and mental transformation. With each passing day, there will be less and less of “you” and more and more love, compassion and goodness; more and more love that God is.
Go through the silence, where there are no roads. Follow me trusting my Love. To get to me you must go through an unknown land. Get out of “yourselves” and slowly move towards me. Allow the mind to quieten and submit yourselves to silence.
Master, what is then the spiritual path, learning of discipline, of meditation, bows, studying of books, life choices and their consequences?
This is the path leading to recollecting everything of who you are and at the same time creating a strong channel for a fuller, external expression of the Truth.
I have heard of this concept already; personality and the body are tools of the consciousness dwelling in it.
No, they are a material and, to a degree, creators of the outside and thus of the world and even the Universe. Tool is not the right word. It would be better to say that the body and personality are the material sanctuary of the Spirit. And efficient action in the material world would not be possible without them. But remember that what I am passing on now is playing with words to certain degree; it is influencing of your mind and heart. You must find the way yourselves and experience the sweetness of uniting with love and Divinity in order to learn how it REALLY is.
I am under the impression that no special effort is needed for it, as everything exists already.
Yes and no. Life often consists of periods of great effort.
What then should we do to wake up?
To know today that you are somebody else than you seem to be, even if you do not understand it. This truth will dawn on you itself some day.
What or who decides about it?
You alone as True Beings.
Can love to You speed up this process?
Yes, it can speed up the process of waking up, because you are just Love.
This is pretty unusual, what You are saying today.
It is time to take another step towards Light.
How to do it?
Wait, this step will take some time. For today know that you should put a question mark at your thinking about yourselves and the world. You can assume and it will be in accordance with the truth that you do not understand who you are. Likewise helpful will be the awareness that mental “understanding” of which you are so sure is almost entirely fallacious. This, of course, does not diminish its usefulness in your world but puts great limitations on you if you identify with it.
It is a pretty odd hint: a hint to think of being somebody else other than you are!
You have a sense of humour. Yes, think that you have not got to know yourselves yet, you do not know and understand yourselves yet. Do not “think that you are somebody else than you are” as it is what your whole problem is. As a result of the actions of your mind you are not able to see the Truth. Leave the world and turn to me and then the Truth and Who you Really Are will reveal themselves. And you will see then that Truth and God have been here all the time, only you have not been able to notice them. And it will be the day of Great Discovery. Love will show you the Way and the Goal.
Less thinking – more praying, meditation and love. More closeness to Divinity. Begin now, at once, cuddling up to the sweet love of the Creator.
