Baba says, ‘Just become a point. Simply put a dot to everything.’
God, the Bestower of Fortune, comes to earth at this time to enable His children to make their fortune. He is the Innocent Lord who fills the apron of the intellect with fortune. He says, ‘this is easy Raja Yoga. I don’t give you any difficulty at all.‘ He comes and shows me the extremely easy way to make my fortune. He says: ‘Simply know the account of the point.‘ The account of the point is: become a point and remember the Father, the point. I was a point in my sweet home, I came to this physical plane and put on the costume of a body in order to play my part in this unlimited drama. Somewhere along the way, I got confused and started to identify as the body itself. But now, the Father has reminded me of who I really am. I was a point, am a point and now I have to remain stable in the stage of a point and celebrate meeting the Father, the Point.
‘This Brahmin life is for meeting and celebrating, this is the age of the flying stage‘, says Baba, I give you no difficulty at all. When I remember that I am a point and remain combined with the Point, then with this method, while performing actions, I always experience the karmateet stage of being free from the bondage of action. I don’t enter any bondage of karma but always remain in relationship with the Father. ‘This is the time for settling all account, not for creating new ones. This is the time to become free from bondages, to become liberated-in-life.’, He teaches. When I am combined, in relationship with the Father, the Karavanhaar Father makes me the instrument and enables me to do everything. I myself therefore become a detached observer and this is how the awareness of this relationship makes me free from bondage. ‘When you do everything in a relationship, there is no bondage. When you think ‘I did this’, you have forgotten the relationship and created a bondage.’, teaches Baba. Therefore, check, He says, whether you maintain all relationships with the Father or enter into bondage of ‘I and mine’.
In a relationship, because there is love, there is attainment. But in bondage, there is tug of war and because of that tension, there is upheaval of sorrow and peacelessness. Therefore, since the Father has taught you the easy account of the point, then any bondage of the body has also ended, points out Baba. This body is also not mine. I have given it to the Father and it is therefore now, His. So this oldest bondage of ‘my body’ has also ended. ‘Don’t give it to the Father and then claim a right over it‘, He says, ‘it no longer belongs to you.’ When I say ‘Yours’, then the bondage of any consciousness of ‘mine’ ends, explains Baba. The limited ‘mine’ is a thread of attachment, it ties me in bondage. ‘It was my idea, I deserve credit for it’, ‘I did this’, ‘these are my talents’. Baba, the Ever Pure One, comes cycle after cycle in the impure world, He purifies the most degraded souls by relating the true knowledge of the Gita and establishes the kingdom of heaven. After all the tireless service He does, they put the child’s name in the Gita and leave Him out completely. Does He sulk and demand ‘credit’ for His work? No, because it was never about credit, it was about His children. This love of the relationship requires no credit, it is something foreign to it. Even right now, even as He is here teaching me, there are n number of ‘gurus’ and ‘experts’ who listen to His knowledge, make a few tweaks, add a few examples and teach it to their followers as their own. Does He go after them demanding royalty or sue them for copyright infringement? No! ‘I am an instrument for purification of the children’, He says of Himself and doesn’t bother Himself with the rest. He does His job, takes the children and leaves. God does not need respect and recognition from ‘gurus’, He is the Satguru. Only He can purify souls and take them back home. Just because a human being recites the same words, they cannot become the Purifier. The power is in the purity of the Who, not in the do. Similarly, when I remember who I am and Whose I am, then with that identity and belonging, I no longer need anything from anyone, don’t need to show anything off nor need to prove anything. I am full, content. I am able to easily apply a full-stop or dot to all the wasteful spinning of who said/did what, what happened where and all the rest.
Any bondage, whether it is of the body, nature, sanskars, or subservience of the mind proves that something is lacking in having all relationships with the Father at all times, Baba explains. Sometimes, I live life on my own terms but when the going gets rough, then I come running to Baba and remind Him that He is my Father! This, is selfish and does not work. I then remain deprived of receiving the unique spiritual pleasure, the togetherness of Brahmin life. I am then neither content with myself- because selfishness is not the original quality of the soul and so I lose self-respect when I behave selfishly, especially with the Father- and neither do I receive blessings of contentment from others. This Brahmin life is the life of elevated relationships, is the life of receiving blessings from the Father and the whole Brahmin family. ‘So always continue to receive blessings’, says Baba, ‘this is the specialty of the confluence age.’
However, the basis of all of this is the most elevated relationship. In one second the relationship ends the chains and bondages of the consciousness of the false ‘mine’. And the first form of a relationship is that easy aspect – the Father is a Point, I am point and all souls are points. Whatever happens in the drama, I apply a point. The Ocean of Knowledge is merged in this point. In worldly calculation too, a point (zero) makes a 10 into a 100 and a 100 into a 1000. As I continue to increase the zeroes, I continue to increase the value of the number. Similarly, in Brahmin life too, explains Baba, the basis of all attainments is the point.
