Essence: Sweet children, awaken in the early morning hours of nectar and pour in the oil of remembrance of the Father. The light of the soul will then remain constantly lit.
Question: Which task is the children’s, not the Father’s?
Answer: Children ask Baba to open the lock on the intellect of such and such a relative. Baba says: This is not My business; this is the task of you children. The locks on your intellects have opened, so you must open the locks on the intellects of others and make them also worthy to go to heaven, that is, you must show everyone the path to liberation and liberation-in-life.
Song: Awaken, o brides awaken! The new age is about to come.
Essence for dharna:
1. Increase the practice of remembrance. Do not become tired on this pilgrimage or make excuses. Keep a full chart of remembrance. Prepare and eat food in remembrance of Shiv Baba.
2. Have unlimited renunciation through the intellect. Renounce this dirty world from the intellect. Give everyone the mantra you have received from the Father. Since you have awakened, you must awaken others.
Blessing: May you be a spiritual server and attract others with your attractive stage.
Spiritual servers can never think that there isn’t growth in service or that there isn’t anyone to listen to them. There are many who want to listen, but you simply have to make your stage spiritually attractive. Since a magnet is able to attract metal towards itself, then, can your spiritual power not pull souls to you? So, become magnets that have spiritual attraction through which souls will automatically be attracted and come in front of you. This is the service of you spiritual server children.
Slogan: In order to become an embodiment of solutions, continue to give love and respect to everyone.
Baba reminds us of the importance of remembrance, especially at the early hours of the day. (Amrit vela.)
He also reminds us that we are not Sanyassis and that we live on a household but at the same time maintaining our code of conduct and using that opportunity to “do service.”
Baba also mentioned that it is a “matter of fortune” as far as whose intellect “unlocks.” However, the same intellects as the previous cycle will be the ones who will come to this knowledge again.
Interesting to note that Baba mentioned that “His task is not to unlock anyone’s intellect, but that is ours…” Then we could see that whether it is a matter of fortune or a matter of “us” working to unlock intellects, it all goes back to the Drama. For this reason, even the word “unlocking intellects” should be used carefully for, those who understand, will understand according to their roles.
A “heads up” sentence was given in one of the essence for Dharna:
“Have unlimited renunciation through the intellect. Renounce this dirty world from the intellect. Give everyone the mantra you have received from the Father. Since you have awakened, you must awaken others. “
Let us be careful in understanding the word “renunciation” from a spiritual viewpoint. It means to transform the self through emerging sanskaras which are not “usual” at this time, but Golden aged like. Same with the biased label: “dirty world.” It is what it is and we need to learn to love it as it is. Love does not reject anything. When we reject, we do not understand. If we don’t understand, we will make mistakes.
Finally, the “you must awaken others,” it sounds a bit too forceful. Besides, we are still in the process of “awakening.” Once we do, others will consider by themselves about “awakening” or to remain sleeping.
Extremist language such as the above, doesn’t bring about the love which the slogan mentioned today.
