    that our existence and the world s existence are two totally different things We think that the world is something separate from us But in this we are making a deplorable mistake What is the proper connecting link between us and the world God If we approach God first and see God in the world then no matter how many millions of mistakes we make the world will not only indulge our mistakes it will soulfully love us as well Similarly when we see the defects weaknesses and imperfections of the world we will be able to forgive the world and then inspire energise and illumine the world just because we feel God s existence there If we do not see God in all our activities frustration will loom large in our day to day life No matter how sincerely we try to please the world no matter how sincerely the world tries to please us frustration will be found between our understanding and the world s understanding The source of frustration is ignorance Ignorance is the mother of devastating frustration damaging frustration and strangling frustration If we go deeper into ignorance we see it is all a play of inconscience Frustration can be removed totally from our lives only when we enter into the Source of all existence When we enter into the Source of our own existence and the world s existence we are approaching the Reality This Reality is our constant Delight and Delight is the Breath of God This world is neither mine nor yours nor anyone s Never It belongs to God and God alone So we have to be really wise We have to go to the Possessor first and not to the possession The possession is helpless it can do nothing on its own It is the Possessor that can do what He wants to do with His possession So first we have to become one with God and then we shall automatically become one with God s possessions When we become one with God and with His possessions we can certainly and unmistakably feel that the world is ours and we are the world s Ignorance and illumination are like night and day We have to enter into illumination first and then bring illumination into ignorance night If we try to illumine ignorance the other way around then the transformation of ignorance will be difficult slow and uncertain To enter into the field of ignorance is to take a negative path If we pursue the path of darkness and try to find light in darkness we are taking the negative path The best way the positive way to find light is to follow the path of light more light abundant light infinite Light If we follow the path of light then illumination will assuredly dawn in us Let us look up and bring down the Light from above The moment we look up God s Grace descends The very nature of God

  • The Meaning of God-Realisation | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    somebody else who has infinite Power while he the seeker is the feeblest person on earth But the moment he realises God he comes to know that he and God are absolutely one in both the inner and the outer life God realisation means one s identification with one s absolute highest Self When one can identify with one s highest Self and remain in that consciousness forever when one can reveal and manifest it at one s own command that is God realisation Now you have studied books on God and people have told you that God is in everybody But you have not realised God in your conscious life For you this is all mental speculation But when one is God realised one consciously knows what God is what He looks like what He wills When one achieves Self realisation one remains in God s Consciousness and speaks to God face to face He sees God both in the finite and in the infinite he sees God as both personal and impersonal And in his case this is not mental hallucination or imagination it is direct reality This reality is more authentic than my seeing you right here in front of me When one speaks to a human being there is always a veil of ignorance darkness imperfection misunderstanding But between God and the inner being of one who has realised Him there can be no ignorance no veil So at that time one can speak to God more clearly more convincingly more openly than to a human being As ordinary human beings we feel that infinite Peace infinite Light infinite Bliss and infinite divine Power are all sheer imagination We are victims to doubt fear and negative forces which we feel are quite normal and natural We

  • The Seven Planes of Consciousness | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    are in Sri Chinmoy If you can meditate deeply each plane of consciousness will present itself before you Just in a flash it will come and present itself to you The seven main planes of consciousness are like seven rungs of a ladder As we aspire sincerely and soulfully we climb up the ladder rung by rung Or you can say that there is a tree with seven branches and our consciousness is like a bird that flies from one branch to another When you are seated on one branch you can see the next branch which is a little higher Then when you climb up to that one you will see another one which is still higher Similarly when you are making progress in the inner world you will see these different planes each one higher than the other But when you are at the top of the tree you are at a place where there is no limit no distance above you At that time you are looking at the sky and you forget that the tree even has branches Right now if you try to learn about the seven planes of consciousness your knowledge will be all mental and theoretical a matter of curiosity You feel that by knowing the seven planes of consciousness or by concentrating on them you will make rapid progress But I wish to say that at this stage in your development it is not advisable for you to think of them or meditate on them Always do the first thing first Right now only pay attention to your own aspiration For a sincere seeker what is of paramount importance is conscious and constant aspiration This conscious and constant aspiration can alone lead you to the destined Goal Try to ask yourself this

  • Akbar’s Clever Minister | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    also the court jester His name was Birbal Once for amusement Akbar asked Birbal How is it that there is no hair on my palm There is hair everywhere else on my body How is it that there is none on the palm of my hand Birbal immediately answered It is because you always have plenty of money in your hand and you give it away Your palms are being rubbed constantly so the hair there has all been rubbed away But how is it that you do not have hair on your palms either Akbar asked Birbal cleverly replied Just because I constantly receive money from you my palms are being rubbed You are constantly giving me money I am constantly receiving it and that is why we have no hair on our palms But what about those who do not get money from me the way you do Why do they not have hair on their palms Oh that is because they are very jealous Jealous people are always thinking of the money that you are giving me and that I am receiving from you They constantly rub their hands together in anticipation of also receiving some money They are always burning with jealously and greed and so they just rub and rub their palms together That is why they do not have any hair on their palms either Akbar was highly amused and pleased but those who were listening to Birbal were terribly embarrassed at his accusation and bowed their heads in shame By becoming jealous of what the giver has or of what the receiver gets one can never have joy or peace of mind When we are threatened by jealously or other negative forces we have to feel that we have the strongest friend within

    Chinmoy Centre New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Books by Sri Chinmoy The Wings of Joy God the Love Where there is love real love there can be no fear Why do we fear We fear because we have separated ourselves from God s Love and we are apt to think of God the Omnipotent not God the All Love But even the omnipotent God is not a God that threatens or strikes us with an iron rod every time we make a mistake There is no such being as God the tyrant There is only one God and that God is God the Love This God does not punish us This God is constantly shaping us in His own way It is He who is the Doer it is He who is the Action and it is He who is the Enjoyer both in the action and in the result We feel that we are the doers and that if we do something wrong God will punish us mercilessly This is not so It is God s Dream that each individual embodies It is God s Reality that each individual has to manifest here on earth It is in each human being that God s Reality lives Since we are praying to God the Almighty meditating on God the Almighty why should we be afraid of anything or anyone A child feels his mother has all the power in the world When he is afraid of anything he runs to his mother because he knows that his mother has utmost affection for him You are a spiritual child of God so when you are attacked by any kind of fear immediately try to run toward the sweet Supreme who is all Compassion all Love all Blessings Since you are a seeker
