Baba says, ‘You Brahmins know that you are becoming deities. You mustn’t forget this. You Brahmins have to interact with even greater royalty than the deities. Your life becomes invaluable at this time. It was previously like a shell and it is now becoming like a diamond and this is why you are praised.’
‘You children are even more elevated than the deities‘, Baba reminds me, ‘because you are the highest children of the highest-on-high Father.‘ You are those at whose feet even kings bow down, you are those in front of whom even very famous souls will come with expectations, for a little Godly prasad. You are the master bestowers of knowledge and the bestowers of blessings, the instruments for such souls, He says with pride. Then He asks: ‘Do you have such royalty?‘ In fact, He explains, purity is royalty and purity is the personality. So, now, check yourself, He teaches, to see to what percentage you have imbibed purity in your life. One’s purity is recognized by one’s royalty and personality.
What does this royalty look and feel like?
A royal soul, Baba explains, will never be attracted to perishable things or perishable beings. Even in the world, the vision of souls with a royal personality is never pulled by little things. They would have no desire to accept anything that has been dropped by anyone; their eyes are always filled with the intoxication of being complete, that is, their eyes are never lowered; their words are sweet and invaluable, that is, they speak very few select words, and others who interact with them experience real intoxication. So then, says Baba, someone with spiritual royalty is multimillion times even more elevated!
The vision of souls who maintain such royalty is never drawn to the defects or weaknesses of others, teaches Baba. Whatever someone else is letting go of, that is, if someone is making effort to finish something, whatever is being relinquished – it may be something degraded, like anger or jealousy, that has already brought that soul down- it cannot be adopted by souls with spiritual royalty, even in their thoughts. In fact, the vision of their thought cannot fall on something that belongs to another person. So that old tamoguni nature, those sanskars and weaknesses belong to the people of the world and not to Brahmins, points out Baba. If I imbibe even one of their thoughts even for a second, He teaches, I cannot be called a royal soul.
The words of souls with spiritual royalty are like elevated versions. Their words are golden versions, and those who hear those words claim a right to the golden age. Each word is as valuable as a jewel; their words are not those that cause sorrow, that make someone fall or make them into stone; they are not even ordinary or wasteful words, but words that are powerful and loving. The words spoken throughout the day are so elevated that if you account for them, you can actually remember how many words you spoke that day and how you spoke them. The sign and specialty of souls with this royalty is that, instead of using fifty words and giving the detail of something, they will use ten words and just give the essence. They will reduce the quantity and create quality. Whoever comes into contact with a soul with spiritual royalty should in a short time experience the qualities of a bestower and a bestower of blessings in that soul. Such coolness and peace should be experienced so that everyone’s mind sings praise in amazement as to which angel it was that came into contact with them!; so that in a short time, those desperate souls who have been stumbling for a long period of time would be able to see the means of their thirst being quenched and also their destination. This, Baba explains, is known as even iron becoming divine in the company of an alchemist, that is, those souls are able to go beyond from just a glance of those who have spiritual royalty. Do you, He asks again, experience such royalty?
Now, according to the time, the speed of service has to become intense, He observes, but that can only happen when spiritual royalty is visible on the faces of God’s children. Only then, He points out, will I be able to finish the sorrow, the confusion and complaints of all souls. There should be such a personality of purity that, from the forehead, Baba says, others see me as a pure, satopradhan soul; this should be the experience others have from me. From my eyes, others should see the vision of brotherhood, that is, through my pure and elevated attitude, I should be able to transform the atmosphere and vibrations. If that sounds hard, think of what the worldly personalities are able to achieve!, He points out. Since they are able to make an impression, how much more impressive should the personality of purity be!? Check, He says, am I able to make weak souls into embodiments of power through my pure consciousness? ‘Bring about such royalty and personality in yourself in a visible form‘, says Baba, ‘for only then will you be able to reveal yourself and the Father.’ Now become particularly merciful, He says. Be merciful toward yourself and toward others; you will then become loving and co-operative toward all souls.
‘This is the time of your ascending stage‘, Baba reminds me. ‘You Brahmins know that you are becoming deities. You mustn’t forget this. Your life becomes invaluable at this time. It was previously like a shell and it is now becoming like a diamond and this is why you are praised. So, you Brahmins have to interact with even greater royalty than the deities.’
