Take the lift

Baba says, ‘Only now, at the confluence age, do you get the lift to go home. Until someone belongs to the Father and becomes a Brahmin, he cannot sit in the lift.’

It is said that it didn’t take God long to change human-beings into deities. It took me 5000 years to climb down the ladder from the golden age to the iron age. Over the course of this time, I went from being a pure, elevated deity, the master of heaven to an impure, degraded human-being, the master of hell. Having taken birth after birth, I forgot who I am and started identifying as a body. This wrong consciousness of the body brought with it all the vices and its progeny. From being a soul, a child of God, I started to identify as the role, the relationships, titles, status, nationality, gender etc. That brought with it comparison, competition, jealousy, bitterness, resentment, and all the rest. From being liberated-in-life, a free spirit, I tied myself into bondage. ‘You carry a huge burden on your head’, explains Baba. I carry the burden of mistakes, guilt, regret, resentment, rejection and all the other effects of body consciousness over many births.

God comes at this auspicious confluence age of the old and the new cycle, of the iron age and the golden age and reminds me of who I am and Whose I am, once again. ‘You are a soul, not the body’- this one thought or awareness changes me from a shell into a diamond. It releases me from all bondage and makes me liberated-in-life. This is why it is also said: ‘liberation-in-life in a second.’ It took me 5000 years to descend into hell from heaven, but it takes me just a second or just this one short Brahmin birth to ascend back into heaven. ‘This is like a lift‘, says Baba. You climbed down the ladder but you take a lift to go up.

Unless I make myself belong to God, that is, become His child practically at this confluence age, I cannot gain access to this lift because only He can give me access. He comes to this physical plane and through the body of Brahma, He adopts me and makes me His child, practically. With this new birth, I receive a new name- child of God and a new family- the Godly family. I receive a new intellect, a divine intellect, as a result of this birth. By giving me the knowledge, Baba makes my intellect divine- one that is now able to discern right from wrong, true from false. ‘All of you have received this gift, but it depends on each of you how you use it. It is a very powerful and easy gift of a lift.’, says Baba. Through this divine intellect, I become the knower of the three aspects of time, that is, I realize the beginning, middle and end of my story. Based on this knowledge, I become the spinner of the discus of self-realization; I see my various forms, the elevated part I’ve played throughout the cycle. I also use the divine intellect to tour the three worlds- I celebrate a meeting in the combined form with the Father, the Seed, in the soul world. I celebrate heart-to-heart meetings in the subtle world; this is where I meet with Baba to ask, understand, celebrate. Then, I also take a tour of the corporeal world, the golden aged heavenly new world.

With this lift, I can stay in whatever world I want and experience it for as long as I want. The more I use my gift, the better it works. And so, Baba says, at amritvela set the switch of your awareness accurately such that it continues to work automatically throughout the day. The more I spin the discus of self-realization and the stay on the pilgrimage of remembrance of who I am and Whose I am, the more and more powerful this lift becomes. In other words, the intellect becomes sharper at recognizing truth from falsehood. If I don’t use it well, then like it happened with Sita, my lift will get stuck when I spot the golden deer and I will be deceived.

The easiest way to stay put on the pilgrimage of remembrance is to make the Father my world: ‘Mine is the one Father and none other’. This is the meaning of being an angel- a child of God, a helper of God. Such angels are always loved by the Father. They remain beyond the attraction of bodies and bodily relationships. I am in a body and I do interact with bodily relations but not with attachment; all my relationships are with the one Father. When I am such an angel, I am able to then use the lift of my divine intellect to, one minute, come into the body to act and then fly back up the next minute. I come down, perform my actions and then press the switch and go up again. ‘Have such a practice‘, teaches Baba.

For half a cycle, Maya cut of my wings of knowledge and remembrance and pushed me into the darkness of ignorance. As a result, I stumbled and hurt myself and others. The Father came and He has given me new wings and is teaching me how to fly. But it is up to me to practice; my wings will only get strong with practice. Then no matter how much Maya, the crow, tries to pull me down into body consciousness, I will soar high up above her like an eagle; I simply won’t be bothered. And so Baba says, ‘Your 84 births are now complete and your days of happiness are about to come. It is now the beautiful time of the confluence age. This is the only age for ascending. Now, get your wings strong and fly. That is, sit in the lift.’
