Beyond mind's tricks, Remember

The one who is wise, they say, live as though you have no rights, and no entitlement. Then what will happen: everything that comes to you, you appreciate. You don’t think, “Yes, this belongs to me!” You know? No! Nothing belongs to you. Not even you. Not even you, meaning not even the idea you have of yourself. Not even that is true, you see? When you live like this, you know, “I have no rights”, and so on, then something… immediately… some… humility… comes into your expression. And humility is beautiful because it opens the way for Grace to come. Because it won’t come; if you’re arrogant, Grace will not come to you. If you think you are special, she will not come to you. So, sometimes things like this can happen, you know, I’m talking to my sister at the moment [pointing to the woman in the audience standing in front of the microphone], and she’s coming like that, and it’s not easy, I understand, because somehow the mind will take that shape and say [angry look], “Look, he is… Look how they’re crowding him all the time, give him a break!” and so on. The mind is pretending to be compassionate. [Woman and audience laugh] But it’s not compassionate. That is not its purpose, for doing that. No! It’s purpose is to make you feel vexed, and “Yeah, why are you doing this and that… And to believe him… You must not believe him! I am not complaining…” You see? So, when somebody asked one saint, “What do you want?” he answered, “Whatever God gives. Bitter or sweet.” Because he has already prepared his mind, that whatever flavour comes, I will make use of it; the power of discernment will make use of it. So when you say that you feel sometimes there’s arrogance coming, it’s not yours, you see? Mind has tricked you for a long time, to make you feel, “You have the right! You have a right to be angry! You have a right to be like this!” And, you see, who is it speaking to also? It is speaking to: the idea you have of who you are. Because he cannot speak to your true Self. But you don’t know that yet. So we are vulnerable to these voices, you know? We have to transcend; this voice; and its influence. And then somehow you come away from its hold, you see? It’s still a play of Maya. Recently I have been sharing with you one of Saint Kabir’s songs… Hm? What does he say? “Maya, Maya… You are the great deceiver, Maya… Everyone you’ve trapped inside your net. And nobody recognizes you. But I know you. You must know, Maya.” Sometimes what Maya has spoken inside our ears, we have accepted too easily. Now we are protecting her voice inside, but she’s deceiving. And how can she deceive you? Because you don’t as yet recognize who you are. When you realize who you are, in the Truth, not just as an idea, not with an intellectual conviction, but [clenching fist] with direct experience, she will lose this influence over you. For this reason you came to satsang. You see? Where does Maya come from? I want to tell you something that might surprise you: Maya comes from God also. And Grace comes from God. Everything comes from God. All this is God’s play. Where do you come from? You also from God [sweet laughter, from audience too]. But you are not Maya. You see? You have to recognize: we put on this human suit, to… to play, and to experience. What I say sometimes, it’s like Consciousness –another name for God, you can say– creates the sense of a problem, or a challenge, in order to have the experience of transcending it. We have now the challenge to transcend all our conditioning. But not to be cynical about it, and not to curse anybody; but just to see it, and to feel, and to say, No, but that’s not true! So, what help do you have to do that? Because all the beings, we have all received conditioning. In the same way that all the beings living in the ocean are wet. All the beings who enter the manifestation, we are conditioned, you see? This body we need in order to have experience; this is an experience body. But the body is also experienced. We are not so only attached to the body, but to the life inside it. So something in this we have to overcome; we have to learn, and it’s time for us… Why you have come here? There’s seven and a half billion human beings alive currently on this planet. We are a little speck of them. Why you came here, you see? What selected you to come here, and put another one another place? We can never understand the ways of the Supreme. But you are here, and you are here for something. And because you have chosen Truth, most of you, then all the delusions are gonna come for you; the devil is going to come for you; because him you must overcome. And he doesn’t exist only on this side of the eyes; he lives also behind the eyes also. But you have an advantage; because you are already the Self. You see? Just you’re not aware of it yet. Just like someone can trick a naive person, but someone who is more clever, they cannot trick them. You have to be wise to overcome Maya’s tricks. Satsang is the place that is helping you; is reminding you who you are. When you forget your Self, Maya is strong. When you remember your Self, Maya does not exist. You came here now, and you’re feeling all… whatever… whatever is… has been undetected… the blind spots that have been existing in you, that you’re not aware of, they’re coming to the surface. Is bad or good? [Audience: “It’s good”] It’s good! Doesn’t feel good [laughter], but it is good, for the one who knows. Because you are Being-ness now, it’s becoming… it’s detoxing! OK? So all this is coming up; it wants to burp out what is not harmonious. Sometimes it feels like you are going to vomit out, and nobody enjoys a vomiting. We don’t enjoy when we know it’s going to happen, we don’t enjoy it when it’s happening, but we enjoy very much when it’s gone. You see? So sometimes there’s things coming up. And we have to see with each other, we have to tolerate…

Mooji,

This life is…
This life is…
This life is a dream
This life is a dream
It’ll be over in a blink of an eye

Remember who you are

Remember what you are

Whose life is this?
Whose hands are these?
Whose voice is this?
What am I?

This life is a dream
It’ll be over in a blink of an eye

Remember who you are

Remember what you are

Om gam gana pataye namah

This life is beautiful
This life is horrible
This life is wonderful
And this life is just a dream

A dream made of love

Remember who you are

Remember what you are

Remember

You are before
Before these questions
Before the answer

Remember

You are before

Before everything

💜🙏
