Curajul

"A fi curajos nu înseamnă să nu-ți fie teamă, ci să-ți poți depăși teama. Majoritatea celor curajoși se tem de fiecare dată, dar la nevoie, reușesc să-și depășească teama. Ce sens are curajul atunci când nu este necesar? E asemenea banilor când nu sunt necesari. Ce să fac cu un milion de dolari în mijlocul deșertului Sahara? Calitățile, capacitățile, forța noastră trebuie să se manifeste în caz de nevoie. "

Brighter World

The brighter world is where we go from one plane of existence where there is time, to another plane of life where there is only eternity - no time.

Renunciation

A man far away from the place where a band of music is being played does not hear its sound, while another man standing nearby feels it but little if he is deeply absorbed in his own thought, he does not find himself with music but feels himself dwelling in his own pious thought. How does he acquire this state of mind? The reply, as already said above, is that he finds himself absorbed in something of the most important nature. Then naturally the unimportant things will have no effect on him. This is the condition of vairagya, or renunciation.

Prayer

The most important and unfailing means of success is the Prayer. It connects our link with God, to whom we surrender ourselves with love and devotion. In prayer we stand before Him as a humble supplicant, presenting to Him our true state and completely resigning ourselves to His will. This is the true form of prayer, and as true devotees we must also feel satisfied with the will of the Master.

La divinisation

Par “divinisation”, je veux dire que tous les sens et facultés sont harmonisés, assumant leur état originel, et qu’ils sont immergés dans le Réel. L’état final de divinisation advient quand chaque atome du corps ne fait plus qu’un avec l’état réel: l’Ultime.

L’alimentation

Babuji a dit que ce n'est pas une question de bien ou de mal; mais ce que nous absorbons doit correspondre à notre niveau de subtilité. Cela concerne non seulement ce que nous mangeons mais également la nourriture de l'esprit comme les pensées, les lectures.

L'unique

Il est extrêmement important et même vital pour notre progrès spirituel, de ne posséder qu'un seul exemplaire de ces trois éléments: un seul Maître, une seule Mission et une seule méthode. Finalement, cela ne fait qu'un, car après avoir médité quelques années, nous découvrons que le Maître est la méthode, que le Maître est la Mission et qu'Il est aussi notre but. Ainsi les trois ne font plus qu'un.
