If you want to come to me
Praising me is not enough. I am not satisfied by your praises, gratefulness and gratitude. Do not just keep me on the stage, on the altar, put flowers and say, `jai gurudev!’ Keep me in your heart. When you are grateful, there is also a lot of gratitude and you feel like praising. But all this should be converted into your soul and make you blossom.
Once in a while, when you have a problem, you come and say, `jai gurudev’ . Don’t say it only some times, do it all the time, everyday and every minute. All these qualities you see in me are also in you. Only when you keep me in your heart, does guruship arise in you. Otherwise just doing pad puja (worshiping the feet), saluting and running away, nothing will be born in you. If you only want to garland flowers, then go to temples. There are many idols there. There is no need of guru then. Not only that there are many people in the world , who love to sit and be garlanded. Go and garland them.
If you have come to me then change. Change from inside. Change internally and externally, since both are the same. The reason why we differentiate the external and internal is because we want both the phases of life to blossom.
See me in your mind. The external appearance is there anyway. Whatever is visible outside let it also shine inside you. Take away your mind from all the small matters. There is no happiness in the world, which you cannot get by being in the path of knowledge. Once you taste this nectar, everything else will be bitter. Once you begin to float in this you will never experience a lack of anything, in any way in your life. All of you are beautiful as me, because only beauty can recognize beauty. Otherwise how can you recognize it? You can see light outside only if it is inside you. You are light. You are shiva. You are beauty, you are truth. Earn this knowledge fully; only then you will be fully benefited.
Don’t keep me at a distance. What you do is that you keep me somewhere high and in a distance. By staying far away from me you have no benefit whatsoever. You are just wasting your time and mine too. Whatever I am, you are that too. Whatever you thought was impossible for you, I have come here to show you that it is possible. Everything is a piece of god – hollow and empty. You are all god. Everybody is god. Actually there is no everybody. There is only one. One big ONE through so many bodies; one space through so many places. Keep celebrating by using some excuse. If there is celebration in life, then there will be enthusiasm if enthusiasm exists then celebration will also be present. This body, this prana, has only one mission. It has come for one reason – to introduce you all to your own self, to reveal the truth self to you. Who are you? You are truth. You are shiva. You are beauty.
See, many people come here. Some come just to visit the place and say, “Oh! Nice.” Some feel nice inside and say, “oh! Nice energy!” They take few deep breaths and go back after one or two days in a good state of mind. Few others come and stay a little longer, while, while others just loot everything. They take everything. And that is good. Those are the kind of people I want. They must loot everything. The shop is open. So loot if you can.
