Steps to experiencing super sensuous joy
Throughout the day, we need to move around performing actions and coming in contact with everyone yet, at the same time, pay attention not to create any waste thoughts. It is time to make the intellect pure and peaceful. Thoughts and service need to be very powerful. We are not doing ordinary service – we are doing unlimited service. From your stage now, you should be able to experience what your stage will be for your next 21 births.
You will experience super sensuous joy when you become the ruler of your mind, intellect and sense organs. They should not be under pressure but under your control. If you ‘force’ your control over them then you will sometimes be the ruler and sometimes not. This is why knowledge is essential: I am a pure soul, I am a child of the Supreme Soul. I need to remain in this awareness. I need to remain connected with my Mother, Father, Teacher, my Friend, my Satguru. He is mine and I am His. It is this that brings super sensuous joy. Super sensuous joy is only experienced at the Confluence Age. Thus, I need to maintain the value of the self, the time and the Father. Throughout the day I should not waste a second.
If you want to experience super sensuous joy then you will need to leave desires and attachment. Never ask for anything… Let your sense organs be under your control. The Gita tells us to be innocent of all desires. What do I need apart from just enough food for my stomach and even then, I have to remember ‘as is the food, so is the mind’. As the water, so is the speech. Let the mind be peaceful and the body cool. We are creating such a world.
If you are attracted by anything you will be unable to connect your mind to Baba and thus unable to experience super sensuous joy. Don’t allow the five vices to remain with you. Stop becoming upset and leave anger. Lust is no less… Greed and attachment can be very subtle. It is God who gives us the power to leave these and thus become the conquerors of maya and the world. Even the shadow of maya cannot remain with one who stays in super sensuous joy. Jealousy, carelessness, laziness and making excuses for one’s lack of spiritual endeavour are all subtle things and can be worse than the five vices. Think deeply… why should I have jealousy or dislike for anyone? Some have wealth or other attainments because of their actions in past births. Others have less for the same reason. Why should I have jealousy or feelings of enmity? That is nothing to do with me. Use your commonsense. I have been given a great deal by God. Let anyone come and receive that from me.
If you wish to experience super sensuous joy you will need to free yourself from four things: lying, stealing, cheating and defaming others. Dadi Prakashmani never spoke a lie in her whole life. One who is true dances in happiness, one who is weak will lie and have to hide himself away. This is a big mistake. To steal and to cheat are also big mistakes. To be one thing inside and another thing externally is a type of cheating. There is a great deal of show in this world. Fourthly, don’t insult or defame anyone. There is only damage in this practice. Some are such that they are unable to sleep until they insult someone! If someone insults you then think of that one as your friend: I have to forgive him or her with love. Don’t take revenge. If you take revenge, you won’t be able to feel close to God. I am a child of God and I should reveal myself as such.
