Sit down, sit down. Come on, Hari Jeevan you stand up. Hari Jeevan you stand up. Hari Jeevan could you stand up. What a shy boy, stand up.

(Students laugh)

This is the new trend folks. Did you see this?

(The students clap)

And when a Republican like him start wearing a jewelry, that's, that's legal.

Hari Jeevan: (-----)

YB: No it's a question of, you know, we Democrats can do anything we want but...

(Students laugh)

Democrats are people's people, we have no reservation but Republicans are very special. Hi Nirinjan, you are in town?

Nirinjan: (----)

YB: I thought you are going to Venezuela. Who told me that? Good to be around.

Today I am just little light but I'll catch up with you. I am not addressing you as people or person but I am going to give you a Performa, a structure. Performa or a structure in which you can understand where the pain comes and then you can think about it that you want to do something for it or not.

There is a word, English word called maturity. Maturity is the century of success in a human. Do you understand what I have said? Maturity. Maturity brings clarity and purity to other people to trust. Maturity bring trust and faith. Maturity is the foundation of the goodwill of a person or a business or any identity in the world as it is. So maturity is a security for the purity of prosperity and prosperity may not all and everything but prosperity in relative reality is also comes on to the capability of extending yourself and making your promises come true, making your words be true, showing your emotions and affection and your realism in non real way. Therefore it is effective. And from where maturity will come. Maturity is just nothing.

Now there is a one word in English called pleasure. Pleasure is nothing but enjoying the bating patience of the patience. Enjoying being patient and enjoying the patience of your patience is pleasure, sense of pleasure. You could be there, you could wait, you could understand, you did it in spite of commotions, you did it because you didn't reject it, you didn't get into it, nobody could move you, 'on my dead body.' These are some human expressions in which humans become Infinity.

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. explained it to us and there is a one line;

'Bahe Jina Di Pakriye, Sar Dijiye Bahe na choidye, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Teg Bahadur Boliya Gur shabadi Eh Man holiya.'

If your mind goes berserk, to put him on the line use the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's words, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's dictate, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's dictation and put yourself on the line. Woda mean turn him around, if the mind goes berserk. But the first line is very beautiful.

Bahe Jina Di Pakriye - if you catch the hand of somebody in support or in love or in promise, or anything, let your head roll but not let the hand go. There is no explanation why. Why you did it to begin with? Or... The people who believe that they can change and things can change and values can change, they are no people. They will be anything but happy.

Change is the law of time and space. Man is above time and space. Man has to surmount change.

Something convinced me in United States. I went to Florida there was a man married to a woman and they both were artists and some old timers will remember it. This man used to carry that woman on his back anywhere. Some accident happened, car accident where lower the waist she was crippled. She couldn't move a thing. And I told him, I said, "Why don't you use a wheelchair?"

He said, "That is very absolutely metallic. I have become her wheelchair."

He was rich, he could have afforded everything and everything was possibly which could be done was done. There was a registered nurse employed as a maid on a double salary, there was three attendants for her, there was a absolute car where she could go and a roof was cut to make about double the size so he can carry her on the back and make her sit on the seat. It's very funny. I asked him, I said, "What makes you to do it? It is not something normal."

He said, "Yes, for me, it is a normal." He said, "If the accident can change my attitude and incident can change my feeling, then I am not mature."

I remember his words. Maturity is when logic, reason, argument, circumstances, time and space, feeling, expectations, needs, demands, call it all A to Z and line and up, when all that can only not change what your commitment is and over and above that, what your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. is. Just understand you are mature. Fifty dollars bottle of wine in two hundred years get mature, sell it for million something. What is maturity in a wine? Nothing. All it gets smooth, that's all PR. There is nothing to do. Reminds that, keep in your mind; simply the distillates, distillation was so good, it didn't go bad. That's the test. Price we don't... If you buy a new bottle and that bottle, they gossip on (?) it's smooth, its aroma is different. It is all public relation, it's nothing to do. But fact is that distillation was so perfect for two hundred years, it was still drinkable. That's the test of it. That's the money for it, not for the wine, not for the bottle.

Man is a conscious, mature identity of God. Man is not a human. It is a light. Man is not to become enlightened. It is enlightenment and all that, it's a business which A man who is clever tells the B man to steal money. I call it spiritual cheating. It is very professional and it is done for centuries and that I have no objection with. Man is enlightened to begin with. Man is Divine to begin with. You know, about foot and a half child born and it grows up to six feet. Who, who does it? You mean popcorns? Who does it? Give me a break. And in the womb of the mother, little egg and little zigzag thing meet together and after that here comes a baby and this baby and this baby, and a living ego and five foot, two foot wide thing. I mean, then who does that. It's all there, but we who want to be spiritual, we who want to be rich, we who want to be the, we. We have never a chance to sit down with ourself and check our maturity. Give me from here to here anybody who has ten minutes everyday to work his daily maturity schedule. Come on, give me break.

I was this morning very mad at myself, I said, "All these years I don't cannot even, doesn't matter what time I open my eyes, before that I (?) when I am fast, mental practice is good, I recycle my entire sense of maturity and put a gauge number what I'll do today. I'll do better than yesterday, by scale point zero, zero one, doesn't matter what." But little better. Everyday I say 'I'll become little harsher on my students.' Everyday. I mean, you do not know how much lemon and jello I am. You know, I am very loving person, I just don't want to say anything. I have never said anything in my life. Things were done around me just on the clock correct.

Here I became a YogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. , I have to deal with people, with their emotions, their feelings, their garbage, their cleanliness, whatever you want to call it and what's the relationship of a chisel and a stone. There is no relationship but it creates sparks. That's what I chose. That's my professional business and that's I have to be very mature in it. I want to chisel something to the piece of perfection of an art. I want to do that and I have to deal with sparks. The only thing I don't want is it should burn the whole house. In some of people have just left. They have gone, they are no more with me because they couldn't take it.

You know you must understand I was talking to the one of my loved one. I said, "Do you sometime feel that I say do this, do this, do this." It is called intensive obedience, crash course. It is very difficult.

First of all you have to create a genuine demand that you should not look stupid and then tell somebody to do it without notice. Just understand this. You follow what I am saying? And then most of the time you are not into it and if six months later the guy said, "You told me this to be done intensely, what happened to it?" You do not know damn what he is talking about but you have to be then totally cohesive to keep everything in a memory to come out quickly so you may not look absolutely fraud. Just understand that and doing all that what are you gaining out of this nonsense. You don't need anything but when the obedience will come through luck and opportunity which is a creative workable ability of you to become prosperous and lucky, at that time you have all the habit to obey and you'll not be lousy and lazy and miss it. If you know how to open the door every knock and look for, one day when the Divine will knock at you you'll get Him in. It is that moment to grab is the total sum of life and requires a training, it require a understanding.

Story of Samman and Musan comes very handy what I am trying to tell you. Samman and Musan were two brothers. They were very great devotee of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , they were very beloveds and now I am not worried about whether Samman got cut or Musan got cut, don't care. One was bigger and one was smaller. Younger brother and bigger brother. He said, "Hey, you know GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. is coming with lot of people."

He said, "I heard."

"You know where he is coming?"

He said, "To your house."

He said, "We don't have food."

He said, "Get the food." He said, "Well, our grocer is there we can go and get the food."

Meanwhile he came making his face, he said, "What happened?"

He said, "Grocer is closed, he has gone. He's not in the town."

He said, "Oh yeah, so what we are going to do now?"

He said, "There is no worry, we should go from the top of the roof, get what we want. When he comes we will settle the account, anyway we have account with him. That's reasonable."

So the younger was skinny and thin, so he poured him in, so he sent everything up. "How much rice?" "This much," he weighed it. I mean, he did the whole thing in a very rational way. But when he came up himself, he said, "Wow, did it." And he blew up. Neither he would go back nor he would go up. He got stuck. Body inflated. They tried, they cried, they looked at each other eyes and the younger told the older, he said, "What are you waiting for?"

He said, "What?"

He said, "Cut my neck."

He said, "Why?"

He said, "This way it will be shame. Are we thieves?"

He said, "No."

He said, "What we are doing? If I come out the man will come, we'll tell him what we did, we settle it, matter is common. But now the way I am stuck here if I am caught that way, means I have gone to steal." He said, "Serious," he said, "Wait not, chop off my head."

The elder did it. The other body fell down the other side. And then he had his head in his hand and all that stuff which they were going to his house.

He said, "My God, there will be blood all over. I have killed my brother."

He said, "Well, this is not rational time, let us go and cook."

So he took, he took the body, he took the head, put it there and then he put the other part of the body which was hung into the rope, pulled it up and by that, by dead body blood is gone out, it should all easily come (?) go down. He brought that too and pat it up and brought in the home, sad he was, put head and body together and put a sheet over it, cover it all up and put some flowers so it may not smell wrong and started cooking.

The guest was GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Hargobind. Master of the eternal, paternal, maternal, the whole thing. Knew it all. Food was served, neighbour was there, everything was well done, everything was served.

"Lord start eating."

He said, "Yeah, good you have come, where is your brother?"

"Sir he is busy."

(Students laugh)

He said, "Then we'll wait."

After a while, he comes, he said, "Sir, he is not busy, I went in, he is sleeping."

"Wake him up."

"Sir I tried, I have never seen him such a sleep."

"Is he snoring?"

"No."

"Anything?"

"Not just deep sleeping. Looks (?) Sir, he is Divine, he is sleeping. I don't want to disturb him. Let's do the prayer."

He said, "No." GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Hargobind said, "No way, chal let's go. Come on, come with me. Where he is sleeping?"

"No, no, no, don't see. Sir, he was just tired, he lied down. I could not, he must have been out, I don't know."

"He was out?"

"Yes, he was out, that you know all, he was out. He came in, that's true. And he is permanent sleep, right. There is no lie about it."

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. said, "Can't eat, we have to pray and he has to participate in prayer. Let me go and wake him up."

Went, shook him, took the sheet up. He got up, "Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. GuruWahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. Guru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. ."

He said, "We are in your house, you are sleeping."

"Coming my lord, can I go to wash my face."

Now the elder looked at younger, younger looked at the elder and when he was washing his face, he asked him, "Did you cut my neck or not?"

He said, "I did."

"But what happened?"

He said, "I don't know."

"But what happened here?"

He said, "I took the neigbour's help, cooked the whole thing, everything is fine."

"And why GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. came to see me?"

He said, "In the prayer you should participate."

He said, "That's true and am I alive?"

He said, "Yeah. You are washing your own face."

He said, "No, no. Either I am not alive or you didn't cut my throat."

He said, "It is not true, I did cut your throat. Even I cried, it bled."

He said, "How you brought my body up?"

He said, "The rope with which you went down was still with your body, so I pulled it up. By that time it was not that fat."

He said, "Touch my hand."

He touched his hand, they both were alive, they both came down, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down, prayer was done, food was served, everything was fine. When GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Hargobind was leaving, he told the elder. He said, "Be kind."

He said, "Yes, my master."

He said, "You take too much time to think to cut the head."

The story is not thousands of years old and it's not a made to inspire morale or moral or faith. It is still repeated from children to children and it is said to be true. And when somebody tells you faith moves the mountains, otherwise stones are heavy for a man, it is true.

What is life? Cells which live only seventy two hours, put themself together, re-nurture themself and give you the electromagnetic field to give and take the signal from a psyche and also the source of the psyche. Source of the psyche is God, living psyche is PrakritiPrakriti Transcendental Nature. It is creation as we can experience it. It includes mind and matter. It is formed from the motion and interaction of the gunas. It is multi-leveled and evolved from the original consciousness of the Absolute. . PurkhaPurkha The great Being of existence. is what you call is the source of the psyche, PrakritiPrakriti Transcendental Nature. It is creation as we can experience it. It includes mind and matter. It is formed from the motion and interaction of the gunas. It is multi-leveled and evolved from the original consciousness of the Absolute. is the living psyche. You can call it anything you want. All is set. Then why my mental weakness takes me away from my commitment? Why my passions angers me and blind me? Why it steals me from me the my foundation of happiness, maturity?

Maturity creates purity. Purity creates prosperity. That's the law. I am not saying you are rich or poor. You can be rich but not prosperous. You can be pure, purely poor and you may be very prosperous. Prosperity is a fulfillment of self and identity of the self. It is a love which is experienced.

You know you all go and make love and wants to love and love the whole world and it looks like very good thing. Isn't true? But actually, you are filling the same gap in you because you don't have experience self love. Therefore you want to encounter with another psyche. And if the frequency meets at the same level, then you have established communicating and longing, it is like iron and magnet. But is that all? No. Why? The cells and their magnetic frequency changes. It is called age. Age writes a new page in everybody's book of life. Age writes a new page in everybody's book of life and that's why what we did yesterday we couldn't do it today. What we did today we may not like to do tomorrow. But that is our routine. That is not our reality. Our reality is, when everything, everything goes against us we go by it. When everything is dropped dead, we are alive.

Are we winning God? No. Are we losing God? No. Because God is everywhere, there is no loss and gain. What we are winning? Temptation of the self maturity or temptation of the universe around us. If universe will live around us we shall be dead. If we live the universe will be dead around us. We'll be in command. Dead universe will serve, alive universe will eat you up, confuse you, tear you apart, shred you. Conscious living and commotional living will never meet. They are different frequencies, different polarities. What do you call two radios? AM and FM, right? So you want to listen at AM, are you going to get it on FM? No, you can't.

Your, what is a range? It totally limits your range of maturity. 'I am depressed, I am not depressed, I am in love, I am not love, I am wise, I am rich, I can do it on a...' This whole thing has no meaning. Put in the scale of maturity. Are you matured to love? Are you matured to live? Are you matured to be the Lord? Three things ask you three questions. Everything has a one value. What is your capacity? Nobody cares. How you deal and behave? Nobody bothers. Lot of people won't even tell you, you are stupid in spite of the fact they know it. That's the worst. Lot of people will lie to you because they don't want further trouble. They already know you are stupidly ill rotten egg and you are going to stink. They don't care. It is called get by. But no, that's not what it is. Life is a simple dimensional fact. Everybody know you are mature or you are not.

I see people talking among friends, "Hey, avoid that, it's flaky. Hey don't call that person, he is a shaky." Shaky, flaky something like that. What are you? Earthquake victims? What's life? What's all about?

The one little story came handy, it may work out. BhaiBhai Brother. Sudh was a great Sikh of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . Great Sikh of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . Old, eighty six, eighty seven year old. Well, extremely mature. One day the village chief came and he said, "BhaiBhai Brother. Bhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). SahibBhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). , why you are staying in the fields?"

Side B

"Come back to the village, come back between the walls of the village."

He said, "What is the problem?"

He said, "These gunman, dacoits, looters are coming. They have already looted some villages, we got the message, they are killing everybody and taking away everything and they are coming to our village, so why you are staying out?'

BhaiBhai Brother. Sudh said, "Hey chief, go back and take everything there and just leave me alone here."

"Why my sir?"

He said, "Just leave me, I can handle them."

He said, "Why sir no (?)?"

He said, "Go."

Came back to the village, was very worried. Ask another person. "We went to ask BhaiBhai Brother. Sudh to come back, he said, 'Leave me alone'."

He said, "Well, he is very mature, he knows what he is doing."

So these guys mad at the horses and showing their swords and filing their thing, came running and they saw on that place BhaiBhai Brother. Sudh sitting very calm and quiet. And they said, "Hey, this is their old volunteer."

Somebody said, "Let us kill him first."

He said, "No, no, no, let's go talk to him."

So the head of that, he said, "Hey BhaiBhai Brother. Sudh, what are you doing here?"

He said, "I am just watching at your foolishness."

He said, "Are we fools?"

He said, "Aren't you?"

"You know we can kill you?"

He said, "That's what they wanted. They left me here. That's what they wanted. They wanted you to come and kill me, that's what they want. It is their job."

"Whose job?"

He said, "Those who are in the village."

"Why?"

He said, "In that village at this time one third people want to fight you, two third don't. They are ready. They have all set. Then the village chief has tried to leave me out. So if you kill me, the other two third will join the force. Then you are going to fight the whole thing. God, none of you will live. I know who they are."

Chief looked at him, looked at himself, looked at his men, look at the village and he says, "What is one third?"

He said, "Three time than your all men are."

So he said, "Three time what my all men are and add two third to it." He said, "God, there is something big force there."

He said, "Yes they have collected everything from everybody else too. I don't know how many they are. I told them."

He said, "What you told them?"

He said, "I am just a old man. I told them give my wealth and your wealth and make you happy and let you go. And they told me stick around outside, you have nothing to do with us. So if you want to go, go ahead. If you want to kill me, save me from this torture. Please do, hurry up though."

He said, "We don't want to kill you?"

He said, "If you don't want to kill me, then I will give you one piece of advice, go back.'

Chief looked left, left, right, front, looked at his people and then walked away. Finally the village chief came. He said, "What you did?"

He said, "What your swords, what your arrows, what your bows, what your fireballs couldn't do. I told you to leave me out," and then he explained to him.

And he said, "Baba Sudh, it is great reason, you played big logic."

He said, "Na, I just was mature enough to tell the children where the wisdom is."

Maturity can find in you where your wisdom is. Without maturity you cannot find your own wisdom. That's why you suffer. You don't suffer because God make you suffer. You are not shaky and flaky because you want to be. No. Listen, this is my personal explain. Nobody wants to feel, do or be bad. Period. None. In my life I had a experience to deal with criminal. No criminal wants to look back. Can you believe that? You say it's wrong, it's true. Then why people are bad?

'Vinash Kale Vipreet BuddhiBuddhi This is the first, most etheric manifestation of the Universal Mind from which all other areas of mind are derived. Its quality or function is to give the clarity, discernment, and wisdom that recognize the real from the imaginary. It forms the deepest core of the human psyche but is impersonal, existing independent of the individual sense of self. .'

'When bad days strike you, your wisdoms leave you.'

Where it goes? You can't find it. Why? You are not mature. No, excuse me. I will tell you something what you do. You do not have a direct control system that when you have to confront something you should ask your wisdom first. Most of the time you do not know what wisdom is. Where it is. What to do about it. Forget about asking it. The Prakash, the audience, the openness, the knowledge of wisdom can come only by the institution of maturity in you. You like matured wine, you look cooked food, you look done cake, I mean to say everything else has to be perfect A-one and to the standard mature, except you in yourself. You can be super stupid you don't even worry about it.

Is that serious, I am saying to you? You seem to be very serious about it. Have you ever heard the word maturity? Maturity is actually a process in which intelligence and consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. intercourses and then awakening is called pregnancy. And awakening delivers a baby called maturity. It is nurtured, that baby is nurtured by the discipline of the higher self and then it becomes the strength to conquer the lower self. That is all what it is. Call it a religion, call it a gimmick, call it a nonsense, call, make sense out of it, be rich, be poor, be yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. , be bhogi, be rogi, everything is a fraud and label, doesn't work any other way. You don't have a, if I tell you it is serious which statement I am making. If you don't have a God and you are atheist or you have your God and you are a devotee. If you don't have maturity you are useless. Both ways. You are bad in either camp. And what is maturity does for you? I am just telling you what maturity is. Maturity is which will deliver you your wisdom handy when you need it. Some people say I am very wise, I counsel people and make them wise. Not true. I mature people because my mission in America is not to collect students. My mission in America is to create teachers so that future can take its course.

Who comes to me and who doesn't come to me, is not my problem. Public relation is somebody else's job. My job is to sit in this quarry, take the stone and take the chisel and take the hammer and keep on shaping them. One better than the other. Some are hard not, some are soft, some are good, some are medium. I have to try my best in my mature way. You like stabilized condition and when you are unstable everything else has to be stable. Neither you are stable, nor your relations are stable, nor your mood is stable, nor your life is stable, nothing is stable. Your horse has a stable and you are not. What a joke. You make a stable for a horse. "Where are your horses?" "Come on, I show you my stables."

Yourself; you are moody, you are rude, you get upset, you get angry, you get frustrated and most of the funniest thing in your life is you lie. You lie for nothing You boast you lie, you underplay yourself you lie, when you are going right you show left you lie, when you are going down you talk up you lie. I mean to say God, is there anything that once a while you can do what you have to do and that is what it is? No, you don't. Because everybody lies, so it is becoming fashion. Everybody lies, everybody... There are some unfortunate people very conscious, very mature, very wise, they are unfit. What you do to them? Put them on the cross, put them on the plate, eat them up, burn them, boil them, kill them. Those who see it and watch it, they call them mortals, prophets, blah, blah, blah. Those who do it they think they got rid of and these guys come again and again, it's a circle.

God through His goodness create Himself among you because He is always in you. Actually the Avatar is a direct separation of God identity to confront His own little identity. Spiritual teacher is not your spirit. He is a mirror confronting your spirit in his own identity in a big way. His job is to poke you, provoke you, confront you and elevate you. Job of a spiritual teacher is not at all a very cozy, it's a most unrewarding. You know why it is unrewarding? Because if you get any reward you have not to acknowledge it, you have to do it more, more, more till the man is extended to be bearers thin. If that way the endurance come through, intelligence become handy, maturity can save the grace, person has got what he got. Otherwise start all over again.

Now tell me in America who has the time? You know what you do? In one hand you have coffee, here you have a telephone and this time there is a steering wheel and then you are looking in the back mirror whether police is coming or not. "Yes, yes, yes, I want to call you, wait a minute, just hold." That's your life. You see there in freeway. You call it rich? I call it crazy.

I saw one day an biggest phenomena on the freeway. The guy was driving, he was reading newspaper on the steering wheel and he was shaving his beard. I, still I remember it I laugh, car was very rich car. It was very good car. I know the price of that car. You can buy a house with that car. But this monkey in that very luxurious comfortable car was so scattered that is, it was his scattered auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. which draw my attention. I looked around and it shocked me that this guy doesn't have even at his home time to shave his beard. He has no time to read the newspaper and he is driving, he may not even make it. Do you understand how much you become numb to the need of life to live when you take these kind of risks? When you cause an accident, it doesn't bother anybody, the fact is you have death wish. It is you who is numb to the sensitivity of life. When you are sensitive, hey, if your, what this, sink clogs up, your whole kitchen can go unusable. It can totally go dirty. Numbness to your own identity because you don't have maturity, because you don't develop it. Ten minutes, everyday, to process your own self within your maturity and non maturity. It is a feeling. When you feel bad, say Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. GuruWahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. Guru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , clean it out. Let us process ourself well because we are going to (?).

Put your both hands on both sides, leaving the nostril like this. This is nostril. This you have to do in the bed, that's why exactly I think that's how it is. That's my presumption but that's how the scripture says it, that's how it is, so I do not know why it is like this.

Inhale, and with these hands lock your nostrils, press 'em and then think maturity. Hold the breath ha, ha, it will work. Do I ever teach anything which doesn't work? All right, put your hands on your face please. Inhale through the nostrils and when you inhale then block the nostril and the mouth with the whole fold of hands. So you don't breathe in. So breath is in and you are totally blocked up and think maturity, whether you have it or not is none of my problem because brain patterns in the neurons will automatically bring the contrast between your immaturity and maturity. It's automatic. Just think maturity. Are you mature? If you are, where? What you do? And when you cannot think you get mad you are miserable, you cannot live then let the air come in. Are you mature to live without breath of life? Are you mature to challenge the impossible? Are you sincere to win. Get a mature thought, hold the breath and compare yourself with it. That's the process. Process is inhale, hold the breath and take a mature thought and assess it against your identity.

My experience is you hold the breath your life work faster because death is very near, so death wish is challenged and you get to be okay. You have to do it for yourself not for me and for us and others. You have to inhale deep, hold the breath, take a one mature thought, whatever, psychedelic thought or a psychological thought, same thing and compare it against your identity.

Process yourself. Breath of life is a help to give you purity because it threatens the unawakingness.

Please do it right because you are going to follow a miracle after this and you have about three more minutes to go through it and do it sincerely and honestly. I am not kidding. Become mature if you are not. Do it right. Even you have a big nose, hold the breath. Some people have Italian nose, some people have Spanish nose, some people have hard nose. God knows what kind of nose you got.

But it can work tonight to your advantage.

Come on, come on, you are losing the time.

Please sir, do it, please. Don't be shy to block the nose. This is your last minute and last chance. You have ten seconds left.

Now inhale deep, hold the breath and put your hands on your chest, breast, whatever that you call it, close your eyes deeply and we are going to sing and very loudly pick up the words and sing.

(The song, 'I am thine, mine, myself, Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra.

YB (talks over the song): Press against the chest.

Whisper, whisper strongly.

Inhale, relax.

If you do ten, eleven minutes what we did first, take a mature thought and compare yourself. It is called thought mature comparative study, in simple English and then eleven minutes this maturity mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. you chant, provided your hands are pressed against your heart center thoroughly and fully. That's a condition. Results will be tremendous. You don't have to go anywhere to change your life and get rid of negativity. You'll drop it by tons and you will resurrect like phoenix from the ashes. And can't you not spare or aren't you mature enough to give yourself twenty two minutes everyday just for this? Yes or no, is your answer.
