There is a message to all of you who are middle age and to those of you younger to heed this message as a clear forewarning. The second part of your life is the most important part of your life. Because you shall be reborn in your next incarnation with the state of consciousness you have now. This is the time if you have spent forty or fifty years on this planet to spend most of your time now developing yourself spiritually. Your soul must be reawakened to gain and remember what you have forgotten in the past. The soul does not evolve it must be reawakened. Therefore you must find out if you are fulfilling your immortal Self or if you are spending your time deifying it.
Here is the message for the youth of today. Why do older wise men say “youth is wasted on the young?” If it wasn’t the youth of today they could enjoy old age at 18. If they could grasp at least a fraction of this superior way of thinking then they could enjoy an advantageous life having access to an infinity of potential ways to deal with the most demanding challenges in life. Younger adults thinking are thinking in reverse about retirement. With their skulls still full of mush they are unable even as a university graduate will unfortunately leave their colleges with book-inflated knowledge, top-heavy heads and are not capable to walk upright on the main road of life as their legs of self-control and will-power are semi-paralyzed through neglect.
They stumble into wrong marriages, excessive dollar longing and fail in business because they have fallen short in learning how to solve not just complex analytical problems, but how to solve practical, everyday problems. As men progress life after life, they become aware of a constant increasing demand of perfection imposed by their own conscience. He then becomes aware of a gigantic battle within himself of two powers, one destructive, leading him toward increasing misery, and one power leading him toward everything which is noble, beautiful, uplifting and an inner awareness of a faint remembrance of a lost paradise where he knew nothing but joy and bliss. There are some who have momentarily expressed the beauty they had within their soul. That is, as you begin to strive to live and walk in beauty, therein gradually within you comes some remembrance of who you were, because right now we are in a state of cosmic amnesia; we don’t know where we come from.
But this intuitive inner call to regain our inner perfection is the cause of all our suffering we face in life, and it means that it creates in us a choice we have to make between good and evil, which is the architect of our character. If you are going to be in tune how much will you listen to the inner voice of your conscience when you have the choice between right or wrong, good or evil which will determine what kind of character and architect you are to build your destiny.
The key is your conscience. Your conscience is God’s cosmic intelligence vibrating through you. Each time you interfere with your conscience by not listening you are back into ego consciousness, ignorance and duality. You have your mind with your human intelligence which endlessly lies to you then you have divine intelligence and your Conscience. You cannot have cosmic intelligence until you work one hundred percent with your conscience to open up the gate to that intelligence.
This wisdom which we are seeking can only be reawakened through meditation to motivate you and to finally reawaken your conscience. That’s why for so long meditation has been left aside, because meditation forces you to face yourself. When you begin to face yourself in meditation; you begin to realize what you are doing to yourself. That’s why so few want to meditate. They choose to keep restless all the time so they are not aware of themselves.
For that reason, the Master says, “You must analyze everything which happens to you in your life with the mind firmly anchored in God’s intuitive wisdom, which alone gives undistorted answers to all the ‘why’ of our lives.” And as long as you have to question another individual to guide your life, you have distorted perceptions. The moment you deeply think, you are going to find a way out of your problem. So you go to somebody else; you want somebody else to think for you and tell you “How am I going to get rid of my problem?” when actually you are just a plain lazy thinker; you refuse to think for yourself. It’s simple. The Master says, “Remember, you have a quality within yourself which is called initiative, which can,” he said, “remove a great many crippling barriers in your life, our lack of imagination, our lack of initiative, our unwillingness to think.”
You see, don’t be naive. In this world, in a world of tears, Sri Daya Mata says there is very little happiness in this world. You have to squeeze the happiness out of it. Saint Francis of Assisi was asked by Brother Juniper while walking in the woods “How happy are the birds in the air, the animals in the grass, and the fish in the brooks. Father, why is it that men are not as happy as that?” And Saint Francis of Assisi answered, “Well Brother, it is this way: the birds, the animals, and the fish are made for this world. That is why they are so happy. Men are not made for this world. That is why they cannot be happy here.” “My kingdom is not of this world.” Some people contradict that: “Oh, but Jesus said, “I have come here to give your life more abundance.” Within, that’s what he meant. And if your life is more abundant within, magnetically you will draw the things you need not what you want, which is an obstruction in your life.
This life is a constant imposition on us to regain our inner cosmic perception as divine beings with all the suffering we experience, all the present and drastic situations we find ourselves in and with the vast intelligence of nature, this planet is going to teach us some very humbling lessons.
Propaganda Re-Education Camps
The first quality required from a person who wants to live a higher life is the ability to deal constructively with reality, and not allow his life to be structured by the endless worldly suggestions of your television and computer. Most people perceive their world through computers, movies and television. They live in a cloud dream world which is unreal. You have to learn to think deeply. Television and computers robs you of the most important part of your life deep thinking, and deep feeling. That is why education should not consist of letting young fertile minds full of mush be corrupted by pumping in opinions or thoughts just from the contents of books and computers. Many young minds are indoctrinated and lied to. You can call some of these public schools propaganda re-education camps.
Teaching children to develop intuition quickens their own evolution and will help them to recognize truth otherwise they will stay behind powerless to realize their ambitions. Ignorant children and human adult androids live practically unawakened lives similar to animals. By following divine laws you can distance yourself from the causes of mental, physical, spiritual suffering and misery. Unfortunately these laws are not taught in public schools. The youth in some countries today hears in middle schools and colleges that human beings are basically a “higher animal” and many become atheists. They do not make any effort to explore their soul and imagines their animal nature to be their only reality.
We should all be spiritually educated by our mothers and fathers to know certain laws. However most parents unfortunately do not know universal laws; therefore, we must become our own lawyers, our own psychologists and our own psychiatrists to understand these laws and learn how to properly meditate and pray.
People who are perfectly happy that are not suffering take the attitude “I am fine without religion and spirituality.” But who knows what is coming tomorrow or the day after. The average person is not free from the possibility there is a likelihood of suffering nearby. You may be enjoying good health now in a happy complacency but one never knows if their head may be on the block awaiting death.

Only a strong person can stand up to their fate where inner security enables them to endure to the end. It is when we have the courage to face things exactly as they are without any sort of illusion that life develops out of events offering us the path to success. In other words, you have to be a hard thinker and analyze life every day and withdraw yourself from the herd of unthinking people. As long as you have to question another individual to guide your life, you have distorted perceptions. A lazy thinker refuses to think for himself. The moment you think, “How am I going to get rid of my Problem?” You will find a way out of your problem.
Yoga is very strict; it starts with yama-niyama to maintain constant equilibrium in our emotional life. Therefore the Master says, “Very few people are willing to analyze their situation in life to determine whether they are progressing or going backward.” There is fate and there is destiny. They are not the same. If you do not assert yourself in what you are doing in life, you either go forward or backward. But when you are certain and begin to analyze, your life will you go forward. If you are not aware, you cannot remain still on the platform of Spirit and therefore you are going backward moving on one direction or another.
Though when you realize that it is your own uncontrolled thought processes springing from your subconscious mind that magnetically brings to you most of your troubles in life, you then realize the mind is the God given instrument to lead yourself from darkness into light, from sorrow into joy, from ignorance into wisdom, and from the fear of death with the full knowledge that you are an immortal being.
