God Alone For The Sake of God
Question: "You said that we should, if something is distracting, like breathing or like noise, we should use it. I tried to use it but it still took me away from the experience [of meditation]."
"Because you are not listening. If you listen to me, see the [distracting] sound, peck, peck so it''''''''s pecking sound, we cannot stop it. but now of course I am going to tell someone to stop that noise, but when you are meditating you cannot stop it. Will you go there and put it off?
Now we can say that, but when we are in meditation we have to engulf it as our own. It''''''''s a beloved sound given to us by God. He must be having a meaning. There must be a meaning to it. Maybe we have a collective karma to, it''''''''s a lesson, how to use distracts as your own attraction. Otherwise how are you going to go ahead, there will be multiple distractions in your life. When you''''''''re intensifying your focus, you''''''''re becoming more and more focused. Every momement and every day you want God and nothing else, you want God and nothing else, you want God and nothing else. So as your mind gathers itself, as it marshalls itself up for that one purpose - God alone for the sake of - that is the most noble thing you can think of and ever do. Because all minds are such scatter brains, if you don''''''''t start now when will you do it? You''''''''ve got to do it now. Now''''''''s the time, now''''''''s the moment.
Fortunately, you don''''''''t have a "bookish" teacher, he teaches from his own experience and shares with you. He shares with you the honey of his hive, the nectar that he has gone in and gained. He lays his shaktipat and prana on the line and the life for you. Therefore all he expects from you is your sincere practice. That''''''''s why the experience is given to you. What does a practice show? If there is a practice, it must bear fruits. Okay?
Otherwise why are we doing it? Aye? Okay dude you''''''''re sitting here, you''''''''re the guru, you''''''''re whatever your name is, you''''''''re satguru whatever you call it - [laughter], we''''''''re Americans, we guys are Americans, we''''''''re going to focus and we''''''''re going to question you. Okay dude you''''''''re sitting there on that saffron piece of cloth, what''''''''s your story man?
My story is this dear souls, my story is this that I''''''''ve practiced Kriya Yoga and I execute my fruits are: Shaktipat which I''''''''ve just given you, and you have validated this by personal experience. Aye? They give you pranapat by breathing your breath. the I give you Shivapat and share my soul consciousness with you. These are the fruits of Kriya Yoga. If there are other people with other techniques, let them show the fruits that they have, and not just talk and give beautiful lectures, where they say he''''''''s a beautiful talker an orator, but what does the oratory do? You can''''''''t satisfy my hunger, You can''''''''t satisfy my thirst, as a matter of fact, if I give you this and I don''''''''t want to give it, if I give you a transmission now, you won''''''''t want lunch, I can eliminate your hunger totally. I''''''''ve done this before. You will be full, you''''''''ll be belching [audiencelaugher]. This has been done but we have more important things to do, that why I don''''''''t do it, I''''''''ve basically given you the transmission and you know I can do it, and I can give you any flavor of any juice you want - mango juice, guava, guava nectar, lime passion fruit, any thing you want.
So the question is this, if a technique is practiced by you, it must bear fruits, otherwise it is of no use. Practicing advanced techniques like Shambave Mudra and all, and Shambave Mudra, you don''''''''t even know what it means, what it is. Your soul crystallizes with the inward gaze. I also did not do it regularly until the great Shiva Bala Yogi gave me the Shambave Mudra. It is described in my book, Wings To Freedom, if you want to know what Shambave Mudra is, you can see it''''''''s described in the book, Wings To Freedom. Normally we don''''''''t practice it, it comes by virtue of the practice of Kriya Yoga.
