We have to realise that we are now the part and parcel of that cosmic consciousness itself – the Brahma. The One that creates, which coordinates, which plans into all the details and the One that loves through its creation, through its expression is that cosmic consciousness.
We are not only in it, but we can handle it. We can regulate it, we can use it, we can work it out. This is the state when we are in we are the guru. Guru means a thing which is higher than the gravity of the earth, or stronger than the gravity of the earth. What is the gravity of the earth? Superficially when we see that we understand it as a thing that acts on our body to keep us on the ground. Also there is a load of a big atmosphere on our head, of many elephants standing on our head. Plus the Mother Earth has the gravity to pull us towards herself.
That’s on the gross level we understand the gravity and on the gross level also we sometimes understand the Guru Principle…
So in the very gross way we see that normally people are attracted towards other through the body element, the gravity acting through the body…
Any body attraction can enslave you, cannot give you freedom. It will give you habits for your body enslavements, and also it will enslave you to your guru if he knows how to keep attractive in various ways.
The whole understanding of the cosmic consciousness can be put in one little sentence: that it cannot be attracted by the gravity of any stars, earth, moon or sun.
The other attractions one has from the Mother Earth are all for food, greed, lust – materialism at its worst. It comes from matter.
All that comes from matter, once you start getting used to it you become a slave and not a guru. So the first attempt should be for anybody: to be a good guru is to get over material attraction….
The whole attention is towards the material upkeep of the house and not towards the emancipation of the Sahaja yogis who are supposed to rise into the cosmic consciousness.
And such a person, if he starts believing that he is the guru or in any way even a Sahaja yogi, he is sadly mistaken.
Where is your attention is the point. If you are the guru, where is your attention? If your attention is on the correction and the nourishment of yourself and of others then you are first of all the Sahaja yogi. And once you rise above the gravitational force of materialism, then you could be called as the guru.
Anything that is living has a capacity to rise against the gravity, up to a point, that is limited. Like we have seen the trees, they come out of the Mother Earth and grow upward, up to a limited space.
Every tree, every type of tree has its own limitations. Cedar will be cedar and rose will be a rose. Is all controlled by the gravitational force. But there is one thing which rises against the gravitational force which has no limits, and that is your Kundalini.
It cannot be controlled by the gravitational force unless and until you want it to be controlled. Nothing can control it but you and your Self can control it. So, as soon as you become in charge of your Kundalini, you have crossed one step forward that you have overcome the force that is the gravitational force.
Then the cycle of all the five elements is bound together. All the five elements have to go in a cycle in such a way that nothing is wasted, nothing is spoiled, everything is organised. But the cycle is broken only by the awakening of the Kundalini. Because you enter into the highest of highest, which is the cosmic consciousness, which you know how to regulate yourself.
That cosmic consciousness is the Param Tattwa, is the principle of all the principles, controls all the principles. So it controls also the principles of all these five elements. It controls the Mana Shakti. It controls the evolution and gives you the power to evolve others. So, this great Brahma Shakti is at your lotus feet.
Perhaps Sahaja yogis do not realise what they have achieved. The only difference between a Adi Guru and a guru, Satguru I would say, is this that the Adi Guru knows that He is the controlling power. He knows He is with absolute oneness with the Brahma Tattwa, with the cosmic.
