ॐ Contemplations at Heathrow Airport ॐ
Mooji Baba shared these words just after landing
at Heathrow Airport, London, on 11 July 2016:

I was 16 years old when I first travelled by aeroplane to England, in 1969.
I landed here at Heathrow Airport. However, I didn’t have an entry permit and was held in detention. After many hours waiting alone in a room,
I was finally taken to what was for me a prison block, where I stayed
till the next morning. I was then taken back to Heathrow Airport
and later that morning sent back to Jamaica.
This single experience has contributed so much to my growth
as a human being. I am deeply grateful for it and all that followed.
Since then, I never assume that I am entitled to anything,
such as to have any advantage over another
or that I am entitled to enter a country
because I have a current passport, or to get anything for free.
This whole concept of entitlement became dead for me.
To this day, I don’t assume that I am entitled to a single thing in life.
This attitude brought tremendous happiness and freedom to my life.
Through grace all things unfold by themselves in good timing.
I feel highly blessed living without expectations
and yet, I experience living as true abundance.
I say this from the phase of my earthly being.
There have been a few things that have stopped me dead in my tracks.
Such experiences have produced in me a humility, a gratitude
and an attentive sense of awareness and intuitiveness
to the unpredictability in life.
This life has truly been blessed and enriched
through personal difficulties.
I am not unique.
Often, what at the time may have seemed to be unbearable,
unjust or even desperate turned out to be blessings in disguises.
If I had to recall the best or most important or significant moments
of my life, I would include these events and experiences
at the top of any listing.
They each shaped who I would be and the role to be played in this life.
Each encounter, each Satsang is shaped out of these experiences also.
Meeting others as forms of the Infinite Self, empathy flows out naturally
to those who experience hardships routinely in life.
All abilities arose from these insights and experiences,
including the wisdom, strength and clarity to know
when not to feel overly sorry for people.
I say: No, no, no, you must use these very experiences to grow healthily,
to mature, to expand your awareness of life to the full.
It is so rewarding to take the best and highest overview
because you are not going to become wise on ‘Nutella experiences’.
At times, you are going to get shaken up, smashed or melted down
to your toenails on your journey, but you are going to come out
brighter, kinder, more loving and wise if you remember
what I am sharing with you today.
Become more grateful, open, attentive by not identifying personally
with the fleeting expressions of life. That’s the secret.
Many people wonder: ‘How can people who go through
so much hardship believe in God or love God?
What has God done for them?
He has only given you hardship.’
I say: No, no, no.
Through hardship he gives me tolerance and wisdom.
Through poverty he gives patience, gratitude, insights and kindness.
Through sickness he gives acceptance, humility and appreciation.
Through uncertainties he compelled me to contemplate, inquire, trust
and meditate upon Being.
These are tremendous gifts—priceless virtues.
If God gave me only money, I would just go and spend it
and do stupid things.
But hardship, sickness and even rejection help me to seek Him
more determinedly and to find Him, and to value His unbroken presence
and unfading love.
Many human beings think God exists mainly to give them what they want.
But God gives us not so much what we want, but more what we need
in order to evolve, through wisdom, knowledge and direct experience
of the living Truth. Trust this. Like this, we come to discover,
know and love Him, the Supreme Self, as our very own Self.
These human lessons help us refine our consciousness
and to wake up to the Ultimate, Absolute Awareness we are.

The instant you genuinely say Yes to Truth inside your Heart
a subtle vibration is felt. Don’t overlook it.
As you become open, it will guide you in subtle ways.
Day by day, you become increasingly aware of its presence.
Sometimes, it may just whisper. Why whisper?
So you bend down to listen and develop more sensitivity to truth.
In the beginning you have to make an effort to hear and to listen,
because other voices are also talking inside your head.
The more one identifies with the ego self, the more heavy life is felt to be.
The one who calls you is with you. Trust.
You must engage your discerning power to identify which is the true voice.
Basically, the less of ‘you’, the person, there is, the more Truth reveals itself.
The one who grasps this begins to see things in such a calm and light way.
Stay like this—observant. Move like this—empty.
Don’t wait for the Real to come.
Recognize, inside your heart - I am already here.

Questioner: My mind is struggling with thought activity.
How to stop this?

Mooji: Actually, the truth is that the mind is struggling as thought activity. Mind and thought activity are one and the same thing.
Do not be fooled by this.
Even the one struggling is itself a thought construct.
Observe. Clarify.
Confirm you are none of this.

Whether a man venerates God as the supreme Being
or he exposes his own ego as unreal and shuns it,
the result is the same
—he goes beyond all delusions into eternal life.

Life honors such a one.

No one has to keep awareness going,
It is the only place in
you that is effortless.

Don't come for anything less
than full awakening. If you only come
for a little truth it is going to be
very, very difficult.

If you come for all the truth,
It is very easy.

If the drive for freedom
is strong -
You will be Liberated.

What is Satsang?
Satsang is not a Hindu thing
Satsang is Life!
Wherever people gather to discover the Lord
to discover God, the truth or themselves
that is Satsang.
Satsang happens in synagogues and temples and churches on the street
in the fish market it will happen.
Wherever beings gather with that in their heart to find the truth
either the truth of who you are or the truth of what Is
That is called Satsang.

What is the greatest attainment in human kingdom?

Is it fame? Is it wealth?
Is it a beautiful family life? A very rewarding career?
Or the pleasures of creativity?
Is it to leave some mark on the world, that will be remembered?

What is the greatest urge within us, our life? To gain what from life? Happiness?
Yes, happiness, joy.
All these other words we use, wisdom, joy, happiness, they all derive, they all come out of one word, one thing: to find the Truth, to find God. To find and be our true Self.

Everything else is unstable, they are variable.
The Self alone is constant.

All problems have to be personal. There are no impersonal problems.
Reflect. You can only suffer when you imagine yourself to be a person.
In the state of personhood, you feel you are or can become a unique entity with unique qualities:
that you can be loved or not loved, worthy or unworthy, a success or a failure.
'You are on my team,' or, 'I don't want you!'
Such words can only be uttered in duality and impact on the 'person'.
The state of ego identity is fundamentally insecure.
And it is good it is this way, because if it were not,
your chance to be free would be almost impossible.
In this life, you have the greatest opportunity to move beyond this limited identity of personhood.
Those who suffer from the ego's attacks are in some way fortunate, for they are nearer to discovering the distanceless Truth. Why?
Because at a certain point, their egos become so unbearable that they run out of moves and then everything has to collapse back into the Source.
If your ego was so wonderful and everything was going great and all your projections were fulfilled, there would be no attraction to the real Self.
The Self will not allow this.
It always gives you, the 'presence', the advantage.
Even if you were in hell, you would have the advantage,
because the seed of being in you is the eternal seed of the Real.

"For a while it can seem like it's a selfish mission to turn your attention so much into yourself. But actually you're like a pioneer into your own spirit--you go there, and something happens in you, where the person blossoms into presence. And the presence is infinitely more wise than the person. And when the presence seems to awaken or reveal itself, it has the power to begin to transform life. The awakened presence is a blessing and a light in the world."

You have not acknowledged your Presence.
You made your well feel dry, and you rely now on logic and rationality,
which are limited forces within you.
You must own your Self, love your Self, because by loving your Self,
your power returns and you find your well is no longer dry.
When this power is revived in you again,
all powers you need come spontaneously into play again.

There is a bush found in the desert.
They call it a desert rose.
It is dry just like tumbleweed,
but if you spray water on it and put it into a moist place,
it becomes the most beautiful flower.
Your Heart can seem dry, but it is never dead.
It is only dry when you turn your attention
towards your mind and your person.
That is the quickest way to dry up.
And when you become dry like that,
you don't attract the beautiful things of this world.

Quickly you must find God, but you must also proof your worth.
You always have this power, but you must honour it.
It never left you; it is you who seem to leave it,
even though it cannot leave you, for you are One wholeness.
You, the 'person', are trying to work things out with your own mind,
but the personal mind is totally inadequate to perceive the things of heaven.
It is just not enough, always falling short.
What I am pointing to now is never too late to see,
but you must turn to your Heart again.
You must turn and cry and moisten your Heart again
so that the Lord's flower opens inside you.
Too much thinking. Too much person.
Your well, which is the spring of life, seems to have dried but it is not dead.
But it seems difficult to bring things across to you.
It is as though you are ignoring me.
Jesus said to some of the teachers of the Law and the Pharisees,
the religious authorities of the day: 'You sieve out a flea, yet you swallow a camel,' meaning that you pay attention to tiny, stupid things, but the big things you miss altogether.

The big thing is You.
You are missing from You.
You are the main thing missing from your life.
You think other things are missing but it is You that is missing.
Don't avoid your Self.
The whole word suffers because we avoid our Self.

You can step out of the shell of your own identity.
There is space for a miracle in you.
Remember who you are and why you are here.

Thank you, Thank you,
Who manifests even as 'I'

Glory be to the Supreme Power,
whose magnificence is being
portrayed in every moment.

To live with a heart of gratitude,
This is the best attitude.

Because without knowing precisely why,
Your whole life becomes like a tree
That's blossoming and blooming
With flower and fruit and shade and
Beauty and strength.

Thank you for the creative power of the universe,
Thank you for the ability to say: Thank you.

The joy, the peace, the harmony,
in expressing gratitude for all this,
And all that is.

Thank you.

Pay attention to what's not changing, and gradually,
only what's not changing is there --
that even what is changing
becomes what's not changing.

it may sound over-simplistic, even naive as an advice...
but it is the Sage's secret and it works.

Don't keep picking up thoughts; just stay Here.

You talk about when you are in this beautiful state of presence, but when are you out of it? And who are you to be 'out' of it?
I don't know if you can grasp the profundity of these questions, because when contemplated deeply, the game is up.
The mind is on a count down.

Such is the marvellousness of the presence of God.

If we pay too much attention to things we will keep on seeing things.
If you pay more attention to the space in which things come and go, then you stop seeing things and you´ll feel just a harmony with the space itself!

Now that you have learnt
what cannot be taught,
go your way.

Now that you have seen
what cannot be shown,
go your way.

Now that you have discovered
that which was not hidden,
go your way.

Now that we are united in
what is inseparable,
go your way.

Now that you have returned to
where you have never left,
go your way.

Now that you know That
which has no path,
go your own way.

The purpose of life is not merely to satisfy mind’s projections.
Though we imagine such a life would be a happy one, it would not be a good life.
You waste your life pursuing the wind.
But to dedicate one's life to Truth, that is tremendous.

And it is a choice prompted by the Heart itself.
One prays from the Heart, 'Let this life be one with its source.'
Offer this house so that it is used in service to God and thus become a temple of light. Throw out the old tenant called ego.

You will never go back and say, 'Oh, I no longer want God to be here. It was better when the devil was here.'


No, you will never regret this.

You must win yourself back from so many delusion and misconceptions.
Misconceptions will ruin your life more than anything outside can do.
They will inhibit, suppress, repress and destroy your natural flow.
Give space to what I am sharing with you now.
Many of you are at the beginning of a very beautiful unfolding.
You will find that whatever is happening, something within remains unchanging.
In fact, you are becoming more true the deeper you go inside.
And you are in the most beautiful place for Self-discovery.
For thousands of years human beings have come to places like Rishikesh to discover what you are discovering here today.
You are discovering your true nature, the wealth of your existence.
You are not becoming another tribe.
You are discovering your universal Being.
Thereafter, you can converse with any tribe because you won't be against anyone.
There are forces that may come to pull you back into the old mind-set, into the old identity and it may seem as though you are more safe like that because you will be again walking on familiar ground. But I say no. No. No.
Grace has brought you here to the holy mountain of your own Self.
Stay only Here now. Trust. Grace is carrying you.
You are being taken care of.
Don’t try to figure anything out.
Have no strategies.
Now you are a child in the lap of God.
You don’t tell a child ‘ Look! go out ASAP and get life insurance’.
No, everything is taken care of.
Feel the harmony.
It is like your entire being is held inside a warm embrace and there is a knowing that all is as it should be.
You don’t want anything at all.
Here there is little attraction for past, future or even present.
There is just the sense of joyous presence.

Rishikesh, India, 2015

My Heart is so full with the joy of the holy spirit.
It is filled with it.
If something tremendous was not destined to happen here,
I would not come to Rishikesh. I would not have been made to take this journey at this time. For consciousness never waste it's expression.
Every day I am looking for You.
Every single day.
Not one of you should miss this chance because whatever else you are searching for cannot compare with the discovery of your own true nature. Take my word for it.
You must win your Self back from the grip of delusion.
Have this winning attitude.
Grace is assisting you to come to a place like this.
Because of the power and directness of the teaching and pointing, you will come up against forces that work in the opposite direction to keep you small-minded and identified only as a 'person'.
The 'person' is only a costume that consciousness wears for a few seasons but now It is growing tired of the complexities and limitations of personhood and longs to come home to it's completeness.
Your Being is naturally happy, so full of joy, so totally content and filled with the presence of God. It really does not need a relationship with the 'person'. Be willing to cut it loose.
Sometimes I feel a bit like a fisherman going out to catch a fish or two with a string, a hook and a little worm.
But here I come with a great net with the intention to catch as many as is possible for it is feeling in my heart like here is a harvest for freedom.
We have to listen with the universal Heart, not just with the limited mind.
And you must overcome the serpent's voice.
Whatever power is needed is already there in you.
Use your power of discernment well.
You have been touched by an energy of light and joy, a deep sense of presence has awakened.
It is your fragrance – It is You.
When I point to you, don't think it is not you but someone else.
Believe it is you. It is your turn.
Come with an urgency but not a haste.
Goodness is on your side.
You have total advantage for the goal is already within you.
Yet, something wants to spoil it.
It is the same guy again.
But he can only spoil things with your assistance.
And in the big picture, he is part of the dance of life.
Without him, there is nothing to overcome.
And life is a game of transcendence.
You must be wise not merely clever.
If you want to be happy, no one can stop you.
If you want to be free, nothing can stop you.


Make your choice.
