2012 passed is passing very fast. Let’s recapture.
When this year began there was a lot of talk about December 21st 2012 and there were rumors that the world is going to end. And like many rumors many people believed the rumors. At least some people believe in rumors very strongly. And people have started holding food in their basement waiting for the doomsday to fall. I have always been saying no such thing is going to happen.
Of course, in this year have seen many catastrophes like almost every year, maybe a little more – US had big catastrophe, Japan had problems. Many parts of the world had nature’s fury. At the same time the economic gloom which people thought was really going to make the situation worse was also managed. Still everything is working well; people are surviving. Of course things have to become better, and it is starting already. This coming year 2013 will be better. There is a big awareness in people today towards environment, towards safety of women and children. What we have been telling for so many years, 30 years, today many, many people are waking up and seeing we need more human values. We want the violence to go down isn’t it, and this year we will all act – resolve to act for a better society free from violence, society free from crime and corruption, a society which is safe and just, a world which is sustainable growth, and most of all spiritual elevation. Spiritual awakening and it will happen and it is happening – more and more people are interested in spiritual awakening and in AOL we are going to make a big leap – this year we’ll be teaching two more new kriyas which will make people’s life much more joyful, so much more joyful, so much more dynamic, feel more committed, compassionate and creative.
You know time posses challenges, and it’s for us to see this challenge how we benefit from this challenge. Every time a challenge is in front of us see how you can make this challenge, make the situation for your own growth. How you can turn it, utilize it for ones own growth. This is what one needs to do. So the last year think about all those challenges you had, how they have contributed for your growth, how you handled and while handling what mistakes you did and by those mistakes what lessons do you infer. Number one. And what gifts this year has given to you has brought to your life, and how you’re going to utilize these gifts for the betterment of life on the planet. See everyone is bestowed with some or other talent some or other gifts. We need to see how are we utilizing it, are we utilizing it at all. This we need to ponder. So what we will do now 10 minutes let‘s sit close our eyes and I will say month- by month just brush your memory – from last year I think we had New Year’s celebration I think right here, isn’t it, in Berlin? Bad Antogast, then we came here Berlin after, yeah on the 1st we came here.
So let’s take out attention backward from 2012 year month by month let’s brush our memory and take the journey back again and move through that and then how we will come to the present time. Ok, so let’s close our eyes take a deep breath in and breathe out. We stepped into this beautiful year 2012 on the 31st of Dec 2011. When the bell rang we stepped into this year 2012 January 1st midnight.
Welcome the 2013, again, greeting with OM – Keep your eyes closed and welcome the 2013 by clapping your hands. And you may open your eyes. That’s it. It was good –huh?
Very good. How many of you feel fresh? The mind is fresh. Good good, good, so
So, plan this year in this 12 months what you’ll do – every day you will do meditation and at least once in every four months, three months you will take some time off and do deeper meditation, go into silence. Once a year must meditate in silence. And spend some time in doing some good work for everybody on the planet. Right? Not think only about yourself, but do some service activity. And then what you want for yourself you ask. That will come to you. You have to do something, then you ask, then you will get it. But if you say only I want for myself, no, you should do something good gain some merit do some good work for society bring smiles on the face of people. If you bring smile on others face then you have a right to demand something for yourself. You see what I’m saying. So that is the currency. See if you have money then you can go for shopping if you have no money, no credit card and you go for shopping who will give you what – right? You should have some bank balance, right? So when you do seva your bank balance goes up. Your seva points go up. Then you ask whatever you want you will get it. You can buy the whole supermarket if you have enough points. If you have enough points you can buy the whole supermarket, so let us resolve to do something good in the society number one, and lets have the confidence that whatever is needed will be given to us. Our wish will be definitely granted to us. We wish something it will be definitely granted. And, then what?
Ready to learn new lessons. Ready to learn new lessons in life. And keep the cheer and smile throughout the journey – got it. We should keep our cheer our smile our joy throughout the journey. See, everyone is walking. Some are yelling crying. They are walking; some are smiling and walking. In fact, everybody is on a conveyor belt, the conveyer belt is anyway moving. Some are crying some are laughing the conveyor belt is moving. The conveyor belt is anyway moving. So it is your choice. How do you want to move on this conveyor belt of time – with a smile? Yeah?
See in the car you have a rear mirror, right? The mirror is there and the rear mirror is small and the window shield is big. Just imagine if your car’s rear mirror is as big as the windshield and windshield is only this much. What would happen to you? Can you drive? Can you drive a car which has this big of a mirror and this big of a windshield? No. Right? Your car can teach you a lesson. What is the lesson? You need to look back; but how much? Only that little mirror, the past, and the present is the windshield. And the future is like the side window, side mirror. When you drive you have to look to the side also. Back also, but most of the time in the front. So the past will give you a lesson, future is the side mirror. Sometimes you have to look there. You can’t only keep looking at the side mirror and drive; you’ll make accident. So u should look front but sometimes look at that mirror and this mirror, past and future but in the present. What do you think? What do you say?
Time has come voices of sattvic people/good people will become stronger now. All those people who are doing bad things they will come to light; their mind will change. Wave of spirituality will start transforming people. This is going to happen this year.
This year, next year this wave will be much more predominant that people wake up and those people who are cheating others they will all come down from their seats their powers, and then they will be exposed. That will happen. People who are cheating others, exposed.
Good times are there in the front, so this is good enough message for you today.
