Understand these few basic sacred secrets. Meditation is not an action. It is a lifestyle. That is why in the chapter on Meditation, Bhagvan is talking about all these things. You can never start meditating, you can only become meditative. Understand, there is a vast difference between starting meditation or becoming meditative. Meditation is not a Anacin, Metacin, Antidepressant. No! Meditation is not Anacin, Metacin, Antidepressant. Please understand, meditation cannot be just repairing something in you. It has to completely transform you. Meditating is different; being meditative is different. In this verse Bhagavan is very clear; your whole life should become meditative. The whole life should become meditative. Yesterday he was addressing objects, yesterday Bhagavan was saying, explaining in the last verse, how not to be disturbed by objects. Now Bhagavan is going to the next step, how not to be disturbed by the persons. Actually the seventh, eighth, ninth verses of Bhagavad Gita, these three verses can become a powerful samyama. First he has given us the technique to work with cold, heat, unpleasant, pleasant situations. Then he took us to the next level working with the fear-based mental setup and greed-based mental setup where you are free from the concept of greed. Now he is taking us to the next level, where he is making us free from the concept of higher, lower human beings. First he liberates us from atmosphere, weather, outer/inner. Outer is heat and cold. Inner is pleasant, unpleasant. Then he liberates us from the greed, objects. Sama loshtashma kanchanah – where you are free from cold; time and/or mud or a stone. He is making us free from the greed based patterns, greed. Now he is liberating us from human beings, sufferings that can be caused by human beings. How when you drink more and more honey, only then you understand and enjoy it, same way only I am enjoying this Bhagavad Gita. Understand, through this verse, Bhagavan is liberating us from fear-based system. Yesterday itself I spoke on fear-based, greed-based, both the systems. But yesterday’s verse, Bhagavan’s Bhagavad Gita verse was talking only about the greed. Sama loshtashma kanchanah. He was only talking about having impartiality between mud, stone or Gold. Today he talks about the power-based system, human beings, power-based systems. Please understand, power-based system is a product of human unconsciousness, greed-based system is a product of human sub-consciousness. Understand, power-based system is product of collective human un-consciousness; greed-based system is product of collective human sub-consciousness. You may ask ‘what is the difference?’ Unconscious means completely, the parts of which you are not unaware ( should be ‘aware’ ? ) but you try to make it aware, without awakening that unconscious into the super-conscious. Everybody has the feeling to become Lord of the Universe. You can become if you make your unconscious into conscious and super-conscious. When you make your unconscious into conscious, you will become Lord of you. When you raise that to super-conscious, you will be the Lord of whatever is in your space. More than the word Lord, I will use, you be in tune with the whole. This is the right way of becoming Lord of the Universe. But instead you try to become a power center through political power. I tell you even in the school, the class leader is nothing but political power! Why, why even in the school we can’t survive without a leader? Why should somebody aspire to be a class leader? First time I resisted this political structure is when I was appointed as a class leader, when I was in the seventh standard, I still remember, the teacher, she was a Jain family, teacher. I used to be little tall, so usually that is the standard. The tall, last bench, last row guys, they will only be made as leaders. There is no other standard. One day she caught me. Unfortunately that day I went to school! Usually I don’t go! Somehow I went to the school, may be 1st day of the school, like that, those auspicious days I don’t miss! She caught hold of me and she said you are the leader of the class. I said “what do you mean leader? I don’t even come to the class regularly!” She said “That is why I am making you leader. If you are leader, you have to come and regularly take the attendance and you have to keep the class under control”. And I said “Nothing doing!” Leaders are the greatest followers! They lose their freedom. They become leader to have freedom, finally they lose their freedom! When I studied actually, the school was not like this, it was only thatched. Now only it has become RCC building! It was just thatched hut! Then in Tamilnadu there was a law made that - No thatched hut, schools! That is why they changed into building. Anyhow, politicians even though they are Heads of each constituency, members, they don’t have freedom to go to 10 day’s vacation! See if I want one day after Inner Wakening is over, I can simply start, go wherever I want. I have more freedom! Anyhow, forget about them. So I told my teacher “No, I will not be leader!” She insisted. Then we got into the argument. I said “Leaders are the people who are not able to lead themselves, so they go on trying to satisfy that unable to control themselves by controlling others”. When you are not able to lead you, that unfulfillment, you try to fulfill by leading others or trying to lead others. Leading others is the ultimate hypocrisy! He also knows he is not going to listen to you; he will topple you down, the moment he gets a chance. What is leadership? Group of followers waiting to topple down one person! That one person is called Leader. The unconsciousness, when it is not able to express, through the proper channel and it finds shortcut to fulfill its ambition, it is called power structure. When the sub-consciousness is not able to fulfill its purpose, the perversion it creates is greed structure. Let me explain this sub-consciousness. What is sub-consciousness? Sub-consciousness is nothing but the space where you dump your unfulfilled, but imagined, visualized, fantasies. For example, if you are fasting by suppressing your desires for food, in three days, you will see in the dream you are feasting! And I tell you, my Niraharies, not single one of them has a dream about eating! That is the beauty! Only now when I said, you even remembered! Understand, in usual fasting it is a law, if you fast for three days, you will see that you are eating, having feast in the dream. I am telling you with confidence without even asking you guys that none of you guys will have even dream about food, because your samyama is not based on suppression. You don’t need to justify or tell because I told. Tell me, anybody? But usually if you have fasted without doing this samyama, as a regular fasting, talk to the people who fast, go to the internet, you will find. Anybody who fasts, it’s a rule, within 3 days they will feast in the dream. Only when you don’t eat in the dream you are doing samyama, only when you don’t have wet dreams you are a Brahmachari. The suppression creates sub-consciousness. Understand, the things you imagined, visualized, could not achieve but suppressing it, that is sub-consciousness. That, when it is not able to fulfill itself, it comes out of you as a greed perversion. What is the way for the subconscious to release itself properly? Right amount of sleeping and dreaming! I tell you, if you have the right quality and quantity of sleep and dreaming, you will not suffer with greed based structure, you will not be running behind money which is not required for you. That is why all the civilizations which are suffering with greed, suffer with sleeplessness. All the civilizations which suffers with the subconscious, greed, suffers with sleeplessness. I tell you, healthy sleep and dream, you will be free from greed based structure. If the whole humanity gets into healthy dream and sleep, Wall Street will collapse! If the whole humanity meditates, power centers will collapse! That is what is going to happen between 12/12 to 12/15. It is not that the ocean is going to come and eat the Wall Street; ocean is going to come and eat the Whitehouse. No! Conscious Ocean is going to come! I tell you, if good quality sleep and is allowed, then you have the dreaming time. The moment you dream, your greed, the suppressed imaginations are released from your system. You can see in your life, if you have wet dream one night, at least for next ten days your body does not ask for physical intercourse. Same way, if you dream about having huge wealth or enjoying whatever you imagined and suppressed like a huge house or car, suddenly the agitation to rush towards them disappears in your system. Understand, I am going to the root of human suffering. Greed based system, the money based lifestyle is rooted on your sub-consciousness, A good sleep, good sleep will naturally have proper period of conscious dreaming. When I say conscious dreaming, even in the dream you will have certain amount of self-awareness and you will be able to move some things in the dream. You yourself will know you are dreaming and you can alter the things in the dream. That is what I call conscious dreaming. If you are having conscious dreams please understand, your sub-conscious is very thin layer. You don’t need to worry at all about your sub-consciousness. There are no much suppressions. All of you understand this concept of conscious dreaming means, you will actually, if you are in, you are living in USA, you just dream you are in South Africa; but you remember your identity and the house, car and all, you feel you can change, you can decide. That is what is conscious dreaming. How many of you have awareness while you are dreaming? You guys be very clear you don’t have sub-consciousness. Your subconscious is very thin layer. You don’t have much suppression. If human beings have good quality and quantity sleep, the greed which makes their nervous system agitated, which convinces their nervous system to do illegal, immoral activities, to grab other’s wealth will disappear. Understand, for a vehicle to move on the ground, there is the road which is required. For flight to land on the ground, the runway is required. Same way if you need to be convinced to do something immoral, certain insensitivity in your nervous system is required. If you need to be convinced to do illegal things, certain thickness, insensitivity is required in your nervous system. Not having the good quality and quantity of sleep makes your suppressed desires into the thick dreams, not conscious dreams. Thick dreams even while you are awake, those thick dreams are running in your nervous system and makes you function as it wants, not as you want. That is why I tell you, there are millions of people who wake up but never come out of sleep. Just like sleep-walking, sleep-living is a disease. But cure is only spirituality! Only spirituality can cure this sleep-living. Understand, the sub-consciousness, suppressed desires, sub-conscious based, is greed structure. That is why when some poor fellow becomes rich, he does exactly what he knows the rich people will do. When a Indian becomes rich, he does exactly as a British next fellow will do, because these fools have forgotten they don’t even know, they have not seen how a Indian rich fellow will live! The suppressed desires form sub-consciousness. It can either express itself properly through the dream state, conscious dream state and liberate your system from its influence. But when you don’t allow that conscious dreaming, and the good quality, quantity sleep, it overtakes you, just overtakes you and the system you create is greed based money system. The collective suppressed sub-conscious is responsible for the collective belief, mass hysteric belief! That is the right word I will use. Mass hysteric belief of money! Next when the unconsciousness, unconsciousness means you just don’t know what you are missing but you are missing something. When you know what you are missing, it is sub-consciousness; when you don’t even know what you are missing, but you are feeling you are missing something, it is unconsciousness; when you don’t miss anything, it is consciousness; when you become Mister of the Universe, it is super-consciousness! When you know you are missing something and missing, is sub-consciousness. Please understand, when you don’t know you are missing something, but you feel you are missing something; you don’t know what you are missing, but you feel the emptiness, you are missing something, that is unconsciousness. When you don’t miss anything, complete with yourself, it is consciousness. When whole Universe feels the fulfillment through you, it is super-consciousness! Understand this! I think the most perfect spiritual psychological definition of the states! When you know you are missing something and missing it, that is sub-conscious; when you know you are missing something but you don’t know what you are missing, you just know you are empty but you don’t know what you are really missing, that is unconscious; when you don’t miss anything, when you feel fulfilled, it is consciousness; when the whole Universe feels fulfilled through you, it is super-consciousness! Understand, this unconsciousness you don’t know what you are really missing, what you really want, but you feel emptiness. That is why you think “Oh, if I become MLA, I think, I will feel fulfilled; if I become MP, I will feel fulfilled; if I become President, I will feel fulfilled; if I become Prime Minister, I will feel fulfilled!” Unconscious man acts as if he is going to fill other’s sub-consciousness so that he can become leader. That is why thebpoliticians always give big, big promises. They give you the feeling “I will fulfill your sub-consciousness!” And the same way, sub-conscious fellows promise the politicians that “We will fulfill your unconsciousness!” It is the sub-consciousness scratching the back of unconsciousness and the unconsciousness scratching the back of sub-consciousness. This is what I call Democracy! Any political system! I am not just against Democracy or Autocracy or Communism. No! I am basically against all political systems. It is time, Humanity can think apolitically! It is time humanity can look into the system of awakening human consciousness. At least sub-conscious man if he gets money or power, what he will do, you can predict, but you can never predict what an unconscious man will do if gets power or influence! No one predicted Hitler will do what he did! Unconsciousness is wild! At Least sub-consciousness is kind of a wilderness which can be imagined. That is why when a subconscious based person, when he gets money you can always predict what he will do; but when unconscious person, when he gets power, they do unpredictable things! Sub-consciousness forms the basis for money based thinking, greed based thinking; unconsciousness forms the basis of fear based thinking, power based thinking, political thought trends. Bhagavan Sri Krishna, the greatest visionary, happened on the planet earth. I tell you, even Shiva is only the great master, spiritual master, enlightened master, guiding more and more people to get enlightened. But only Krishna creates an ambiance for mass enlightenment! These last three verses, if India listens to these three verses, if India listens to these great truths, it will get back to its glory, which Krishna created 5000 years ago. Neither West listened to Christ nor East listen to Krishna. Christ said “If you are slapped on one cheek, show the other”, West did not listen to it. Krishna said “Remember me and wage the war, I am with you”, East did not listen to it. Neither the East listen to Krishna nor the West listen to Christ. Even though they accepted Krishna and Christ as their ideals and the founders of their religious traditions, they have not accepted their ideas. Accepting somebody as an ideal can be a political decision. Accepting somebody as an ideal does not mean you accept their ideas also. Neither East listen to the Krishna, nor West listen to Christ. If India listensto these three verses, it will be totally different. Otherwise it is like Congress installing Gandhi’s statues. One of the worst things happened to Gandhi is his face being printed in the currencies of India, because for the every corruption he is the witness! Insider witness! Without invoking him, no corruption happens; without invoking his presence, no illegal activity happens. One of the worst punishment given to Gandhi is his face being printed in all Indian currencies. There is no murder without his photograph involvement; there is no corruption without he being invoked. There is no illegal activity like paid advertisements. Paid advertisements, paid News is equivalent to buying judgments. Whole society cries so much about judgments being bought! Why nobody bothers about paid News? Paid News is much worse than judgments being bought. Whether you buy judgment or paid News, everything unfortunately happens invoking Gandhi’s face. What to do? It’s really unfortunate. Understand, sub-conscious fellow, even if he gets the power you will know the trend in which he will flow. He is only equal to the dried river. Even if the river is dried, when the flood comes again it will only go in that current, in that created channel.
