Talking to God

Gururaj_blanco_negro_32The best way to review our talking is by not talking. Now what does that mean? It means that talk is nothing else but the verbalization of thought. And when thoughts become steady, silent, and find an equilibrium, then the real talk begins, the real review begins between you and Him. So words has its value naturally, more so for a spiritual master because he has to give people some understanding of themselves. So it has its purpose. But the real answer comes always when you become still. I have given you all the tools to become still. I have given you all those spiritual energies to become still. Keep alive those spiritual energies by being regular in your gurushakti practices. So therefore, this is what is meant in the scriptures by “be still and know that I am God.” Who are you really knowing? You are knowing, by being still, you are only knowing stillness, and that stillness is Divinity itself.

So be still and know that I am God. And then after that stillness you can reflect upon it at your leisure. Was there any experience, or was there no experience? Now the greatest experience is to have no experience, because stillness itself is still. There has to be an outside party to witness the stillness. And the outside party that witnesses the stillness has to be active in witnessing. So that witness is going to disturb your stillness. So stillness finds itself within itself, bringing that peace to your hearts, to your minds. And believe you me my beloveds, when you experience that peace, you will want nothing else in the world, you want nothing. For what else is there greater than that peace. So in the stillness you find peace, and in the reflection after the stillness you find joy. So peace comes first and joy and bliss comes afterwards in retrospection. Yes.

So we do not review that peace or that spirituality, not in the moment of its own experience. To repeat again, this must be done in retrospection. You think afterwards and you sit down and you say, “Oh, how joyful I’ve been, how blissful.” Now the next stage after that is this, that in the retrospection, when you recollect that joy and that bliss, it will tend to linger on in you. For one moment of spirituality, or that bliss, will last you for twenty‑four hours of the day. That is why you always find me blissful. Even if tears come from my eyes, the tears are never of sorrow but of joy. For I see joy in everything, in everything all the time.

But sometimes there is sorrow when I see the sorrow in others. Yet inside me I know that that sorrow which my beloveds have is just but surface. And I can see beyond the surface. The true spiritual master can transform with a touch, or with a glance looking into a person’s eyes. So many mechanisms are involved there in that moment. Do you see? Don’t you feel far more peaceful now than when you woke up this morning? Yes? Yes? Yes. That is the touch of the master, the true master. And the true master says he is a true master for the sake of using words, to verbalize things. But there is only one true master, that fellow upstairs there, who is not only upstairs but also downstairs within you. Do you see.

So we have to use words to explain certain things, but behind those words there is a whole depth of meaning. For who is the true master? Only Him. And that true master can flow through a little bodily form. It flows through everything. But it flows more powerfully through a self‑realized person or an avatara. When we meet again in November I’ll go into far deeper details of how you can recognize an avatara, or the true spiritual master.
