Dadi Prakashmani Ji
Beloved Baba says: All of you sweet children are not householders, you are trustees. However, if you go beyond even this, you are not even trustees, but little children. Children do not have a household. We are the children and our world is one Baba. That one is our Mother, Father, Friend, Child and the Deity of all deities. This is why our entire world is that One. Our world is in that One. This is also why we are not like worldly people. We are beyond all their customs and systems. The world has its own customs and systems.
And it is a huge world from which we are distinct. The one Dot is our world. So, our love is new, our customs are new, our friendship is new. Our world is not a household. To be a householder means to have a family and sons and daughters-in-law, grandchildren etc. It’s such a huge world. Ours is the one Father, one mother and the children. We have all relationships with One. The rest are all just relationships of karmic bondages for namesake. Baba’s first shrimat or direction is: Children, forget the consciousness of your body and bodily relations and remember Me alone. On this basis, I, the soul, have become alone. This body also has its own huge world which you have to look after. However, Baba says: Become detached from this and forget this too. This is our study. This consciousness of the body has to be finished. The body and the household that belongs to it pull you down into body consciousness. We have to transform this too and become soul conscious. To think about and to practise being bodiless day and night is Raja Yoga. Raja Yoga means to go beyond the body and to remain in the consciousness of the original self. I am a soul and mine is the Supreme Soul. To remain in this stage and to experience dead silence requires solitude.
Sit in solitude and to whatever extent possible, stay beyond sound, beyond thoughts and beyond vicious thoughts, that is, stay in the incorporeal stage. This is the practice of the beginning and the end. This is manmanabhav. Young and old; all have to make full effort for this karmateet stage. The more we think about this study night and day from the time we awaken, the more all difficulties in our entire life will finish.
In order to become such an embodiment of remembrance, Baba has shown us many methods. From the time we arise, our timetable is such that, as soon as the eyes open, I, the soul, am present in the chariot of this body and say good morning Consider the self as a soul, have a sweet heart-to-heart conversation with Baba, that is, go beyond this body and this world and sit in the home. First, we think and then we go to our home to play. Whilst playing, the inspiration that Baba gives is to control our thoughts at that time, that is to come down in one second and go beyond in one second. Listen to the murli of Murlidhar. At that time, let there be the practice, “I, the soul, am listening to the supreme versions of the Supreme Soul through these ears.
Baba is taking the support of these lips and is speaking. Whilst practising this, you will easily create your incorporeal stage. The more you stay in the incorporeal stage, the more you will automatically create the stage of being viceless. The method to create a viceless stage is to stabilise the soul in the incorporeal dot stage. The more incorporeal you remain, the more you will also become egoless. These three supreme versions are the final versions we all received from Baba in the form of a mantra. If you consider these to be your mantra, then the question, “How can I be incorporeal?” will finish. The gate for Maya to enter opens when you consider yourself to be the body. Then you have the feeling that this is your household, this is the world, this is the old world you live in, that you are the one who has to fulfil responsibilities. However, when you come away from this in one second and realise that this is not your world nor is it your household, but that it is Baba’s household, not yours, that you are a little child and a student. When you decide this in the intellect, then many types of Maya will finish.
Some say: Baba has said that we have to fulfil the responsibility of the household. However, Baba has not said that you are householders. Some take Baba up on His words, saying that they are not householders, but trustees. Yet, even though they consider themselves to be trustees, they sometimes become dishonest about what has been entrusted to them. We even have to go beyond this. This is not my world nor am I a worldly person. I belong to Baba and this is Baba’s world. These are such sweet words through which all difficulties finish. All the things that cause confusion finish. To consider it to be your household means to open the gate for Maya. Sometimes, she will come through the attraction of the body and sometimes through the consciousness of “yours” and “mine”. Then you have to spend time conquering this. You think that you are warriors and that storms will therefore come. But stop wasting time in this game of sometimes experiencing victory and at other times, defeat. If you continue with this game, you will dance around in the world of negative thoughts. Your time will be lost in ascending and descending. However, when there is faith that I belong to Baba and Baba is mine, then I am not a householder nor is this my household. The world is so huge. How many can I be attracted to? My Baba alone attracts me and decorates me. Don’t look at anyone, but at just the One. No one is mine. If you want to look at someone, look at the five and half billion or else look at just the one Baba.
To stay in the household is just a game. The more you stay in remembrance, the more the accounts of karma will be settled. It shouldn’t be that one minute you spoil something and then create it again. If you keep doing this, when will you become karmateet? Don’t say, “What can we do if Maya comes?” You have to conquer it. Maya will come again and again. She will throw you and sometimes you will be defeated and at other times, you will win. Always remember that you are an incorporeal soul and that your Baba is also incorporeal. To practise this is our study. We are brothers and sisters. To have this consciousness also brings you down. This is why always have the consciousness that this is the world mother and this is the world father. Through this, the consciousness of “my wife” or “my husband” will finish. Baba has given us the duty not just to serve one soul, but the whole world. When you see yourself doing the service of bringing world benefit, then you will never say, “My sanskars have not yet transformed”. If my sanskars are not transformed, how will I transform those of others? We are all doing the service of God. Our life is only to serve Baba. We now have to return to our sweet home of silence. We are not living simply to eat and drink. This is the final period for the service of world benefit. Therefore, your time, thoughts and wealth is not for yourself, but for God. Those who eat for the self are also thieves. When you use for yourself, desires and temptations will increase. We are on God’s service and eating is simply to give grass to the horse. When it’s in your intellect that Baba is your world, that everything is for Baba, then the line of intellect will become clear. The destiny of knowledge says that I am alone that and I have to return alone. Always consider yourself to return alone and you will never be attracted towards the body. You have to go beyond the religions of the body. Also, if there is only one Baba in the intellect, all vicious attitudes will finish.

There should never be any conflict between you. When you consider yourself to be the master, you show a stern eye to others. Baba has said: You have to live in your household with love, peace and unity. Each one’s karmic accounts are different. However, when you have the aim, those characteristics will come.
Then, make shrimat your judge. Shrimat says: You must remain united. For this, sometimes, you have to accept others’ ideas. Don’t think that Baba has said that you are alone and that you must only accept shrimat. You mustn’t take advantage of this and disrespect your companions. Each one must play the game accurately. You must not allow your mood to go off over little things. If someone has said something wrong, and you have explained to him that it is wrong, but he does not accept it, why do you get disturbed? At that time, what happens to your yogyukt stage? Why do you spoil your chart because of others? To give advice about right or wrong is your duty, but each one has to follow it of their own accord. Only through your original stage can you do service. Keep your chart accurate and make the soul cool. Keep all the powers with you. When it is time to merge something, merge it. When you have to face something, face it. At some time, if something needs to be tolerated, then tolerate it. Don’t think: What can I do? I don’t have the power to tolerate. If you say that you don’t have a particular power, it means you don’t have yoga. If you want to remain yogyukt, always keep every power with you. Everyone is faced with many papers during the day. When we create fortune, Maya tries to create a hundred methods to destroy it. However, stay in the stage of self-respect and you will not become distressed. No matter how severe your sanskars of anger, sulking, jealousy or competition may be, renounce them today. Set aside the sleep of carelessness. In theworld, jealousy makes people unable to bear seeing others move forward. Here too, when there is jealousy, they say that such-and-such a person is always placed in the front. Is this the only one who can do service?
However, Baba says: Everyone has a right to do service. The one who practises become Arjuna. Everyone has to offer their finger in service. Some do it through their body, some through their mind and some through their wealth, but everyone has to do it together. Just do not have any jealousy.
