I want to tell you this:
Right there in the midst of the biggest crisis, the most overpowering fear, lies a portal to the infinite.

It is immovable, sacred and open to those who have the courage or the desperateness to surrender all for Truth.

All things pass except the love and presence of God. To know this inside your heart is eternal life, freedom and joy.

The power of the Supreme is so great,
it allows you to be nothing.
There is no need to be somebody.
No need to prove anything.
And this is the greatest love.

How beautiful and rare to find one
who is free of intentions, desires and needs.
One who has come to that state
which is not driven by the urge to control existence
or become anything.
One's mind comes to a beautiful place of openness,
silence and peace.
In fact, one does not create such a state;
one simply stops identifying with the projections
of the conditioned mind and so comes to recognise
and be one's true nature.

All aspirations, battles and victories are confined
to the realm of the waking and dream states only,
which is the realm of dynamic consciousness.
Pervading and yet beyond the waking state and its activities
lies unborn awareness, our true Self.

It could be said that the real spiritual journey
is from the head to the Heart. However, the Heart
does not know any distance or journeys.
It is only the head that imagines such things
as journeys, trips, tricks and traps.
And I am so happy when one sees that one's true Self
has always been perfectly happy, peaceful and complete.
It is the greatest mystery in the world,
but I wonder... for whom?

Your attention has to shift from the position
of the personal 'I' to that of the unmixed witness,
the one who observes the play
of the manifest world spontaneously.
When you come to the place of the unmixed witness,
already you are in the fragrance of beauty, light and joy.
But ultimately, even this beingness state
will be recognised to be itself phenomenal.
It is perceivable by and inside the Unmoving.
But the Unmoving is not a thing, not an object.
Either it is not a thing or it is the only thing
—whichever way you want.
And what are we speaking about?
You, us, I, That, God, Self, Supreme Being, Absolute;
in effect, You without 'you',
the historical and hysterical 'person'.

Don't hold on to too many hopes, even spiritual ones. Better just be empty and be totally surrendered in your heart.

Let everything happen spontaneously. You are focusing on BEING first, not going shopping for other experiences first. When you're in a state of contentment, everything seems abundant. When you're in a state of need its never enough. The belly of the mind is never full. So paradoxically, when you're empty of that (mind created needs) , somehow contentment is there. Then in that simple focus, you may say, or Natural Harmony, there seems to be a kind of abundance anyway. Why abundance? Because you're already in a state of contentment.

No thought has any power.
You have power.

And when you identify and believe in the thought you give power to the thought.

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!

Always at the point of real atomic recognition,
the strongest doubt and loudest noise will come.
Don’t panic. They are phenomena.
You are the witness of both doubt and noise.
They happen in you, not to you.
You forever remain the immaculate Self.

In order to really grow inside,
you must first be challenged from all directions.
Things cannot just go your way.
You cannot command life or expect
it to fulfil your projections.
If things are always easy,
you go to sleep inside your being.
As you become more sensitive,
more alert, more intuitive, open and silent,
fear, resistance and lethargy subside
and are replaced with a deep calm
and a faith in the unseen one.
Though no outer company may be seen alongside you,
the one who walks with God is never alone.
The hosts of the heavens walk with them.

Welcome on the road of true life.

Can you imagine meeting with God and knowing there is nothing you could say that would make him upset with you? And when you know you cannot do anything to change his love for you, then many suppressed feelings leave you. Nothing to be offended, nothing to judge, nothing to forgive nor to heal. Nothing has ever been remembered of anything wrong you think you ever did. I tell you that you don't have to imagine this, because it is true.
People worry and say, 'Man, you really don't know what kind of thoughts I have.'
They are only terrible because you think they are yours and that there is a 'you' who thinks them.

The fact is we are meant to be happy.
By nature you are happy, by nature your being is perfect, by nature you are in peace, by nature you have a love for life and for all beings.
You just have it, you didn't cultivate it, and so as you awaken more to your own reality, you are discovering something universal.
It is like you are knowing without study.
When you study you use your mind, but when you find harmony, you are in your heart.

Be aware of this persistent feeling that there is something more to do in order to attain the Self.
Somehow, you have been brought to a stage where you are encouraged to leave aside all intentions, projections and fantasies, and to simply keep quiet inside your being.

Mind is inclined to say this is not enough. It is suggesting to take some action. However, the Master tells you to keep quiet and to focus on the silence of your Heart rather than the rush of the mind. You are advised to avoid the sense of waiting for something to happen. There may arise a little tension because of this advice not to go with the movements of the mind.

Learn to bear your own silence by observing the tensions encircling it.
Observe rather than react.
Again, keep quiet. Stay only as awareness.

The final bridge to cross is to let go of the mind-created 'spiritual' self.
Burn that bridge behind you.
Stay empty of self-image and cease looking back. Remain in the neutrality of being.

Whatever comes, do not push away, whatever goes, do not grieve. Everything appears just like clouds floating by; they just come and go. Stay only as the unmoving Awareness. Awareness and Truth are one.

Find the "presence", not the "present"!
The presence is timeless. The present is time bound. The present is fluid, is memory, is mind, is an idea.
People say, "the past is unreal, the future is unreal, only the present, only here & now...", but the "here & now" is also unreal, is also an idea. Because you have touched it with your mind. So it becomes a bit dirty. Only seeing it from the timeless then everything is good.
Your Being is timeless.

Q: Mooji, you say we don't have complete free will. I disagree.

M: For instance?

Q: For instance: If I wish to climb this tree, nothing can stop me.

M: Can you climb it now?

Q: No.

M: Why not? It would demonstrate your point very well.

Q: Well, I don't feel like it right now.

M: What makes you feel like it? Do you have any choice in that?

Q: No

M: Then where is your free will?

Many beings come to me and say, ‘Life is flowing very beautifully now. I am in a state of peace. My intuitive powers are opening up. Life is a sweet flow. I see sensations and thoughts coming and going but I am unchanging.'
They feel they are enjoying the complete state of Self-realization.
But then unexpectedly, this state is suddenly changing. Many thoughts are coming now and they are not nice ones.
Before, there was a shield of protection but now all ugly things are coming through. The awakening honeymoon seems to be over.
Now please pay attention. Listen well.
This is a form of Grace actually. This phase has come and signals that you must mature further in order to attain complete realization of the Self.
I sometimes say, 'You want to taste the honey, you don't want to be the honey'. What is this honey? It is the satchitananda state — the perfume of the Self experienced as existence, consciousness and bliss. All beings enjoy this state and wish to prolong it, believing it to be the ultimate state.
Through these intense satsangs, ego is thinning away and you are beginning to experience an expansion within your being.
You are enjoying. You are tasting the honey. Why not? Very nice. Best honey. But then somehow you get a bee sting and the tongue hurts. The honey is gone or feels polluted.
What happened? Your beautiful spiritual world has changed. Your spontaneity has gone.
Don't panic. You haven't done anything wrong.
What is important now is that you recognize that you are still totally here as pure quality-less awareness.
Grace says, 'You must experience only awareness without the taste of the honey.' But this is not acceptable to the 'experiencer' self. It wants the tasting to continue uninterrupted. It wants nothing more.
Where is the taste?
There is only the tasteless awareness.
This 'experiencer' self is a mix of presence and ego and must be transcended before Self-realization is complete.
Remember, just as the flower is not attached to its smell, awareness is not addicted to any state.
Now you must be the Self beyond quality.
Don't rely on the fragrance.
The initial fragrance is still the subtlest part of phenomenality, but it can and will disappear.
But the Self cannot disappear.
It cannot even appear for it is infinite and timeless.
As soon as you, the true Self, recognize and start marinating in your own emptiness, the attachment to fragrances weaken.
Before arriving to this stage, there was no attraction for the ultimate Self, only for its dynamic aspect as presence.
Now, as a result of listening to and following these direct pointings you come to find the Supreme joy — the immutable Self.
Here is the unfading peace that cannot be described.
You are not merely tasting peace.
You are peace itself.
You are not feeling happy.
You are happiness itself.
You are beyond the play of interrelated opposites. Beyond the spell of duality.
This Realization few have attained.
Here in satsang today, you may discover and be one of them.

This body can become exhausted but the Source from where I'm speaking can never be exhausted.

I can not keep on putting food in the mouth.
I can not do it, it's not good and it's not of much value because I have come to give you the most beautiful Thing,
which you don't have to pay to find,
which you don't have to go to some place to look for, it's not hidden in the Himalayas,
it's right Here in the Center of your Being.

Sometimes you feel you know less and less, but being more and more. You are being more of yourself although you didn't become anything at all. These are paradoxes that cannot be easily explained.

Trust.

You are coming to the edge of your personal self. You are falling into the abyss of your own Self. Say inside your Heart: I am up for this. I choose to be free forever.

If you think it's more "spiritual" to become a vegetarian, buy Organic Foods, practice yoga and meditate, but then you find yourself judging those who don't do all these things, you fell into an ego trap.
If you think it's more "spiritual" riding a bike or public transport at work, but then you're judging those in the car, you fell into an ego trap.
If you think it's more "spiritual" to stop watching tv because it cancels your brain, but then you're judging those who still look at you, you fell into an ego trap.
If you think it's more "spiritual" to avoid reading newspapers and gossip magazines, but then you judge those who read them, you fell into an ego trap.
If you think it's more "spiritual" listening to classical music or sounds of nature, but then you're judging who listens to commercial music, you fell into an ego trap.
You always have to be careful about the feeling of "superiority". it is the most important clue we have to realize that we are dealing into an ego trap. The ego is cleverly hidden in noble thoughts like to start a vegetarian diet or use the bicycle and then turn into a sense of superiority towards those who do not follow the same spiritual path."

Moojibaba’s Words Before Entering His Silent Retreat:

Many years ago, when these profound changes began taking place in my life, I suddenly found myself spending a lot of time on my own. I had the opportunity, in those days, to just sit by myself in undisturbed peace and silence. It was not my intention or decision to do this. I just went along with what felt right inside my heart and being. It all felt as though God had arranged it like this. Quite a long time passed in silent introspection and self-awareness. Little attention was left for anything else. I lived in a kind of timeless state cocooned inside this silent, blessed feeling of being.

Over 25 years have passed since, and I realise I have not taken any time to just sit by myself. I know that it was absorption in the power and continuous flow of grace from the Supreme Being that makes all this possible here and now. This time of deep immersion in the Self made all these years of travelling around the world sharing Satsang possible. It is still here today in service to your own awakening. I have shared with some of you that an urge has been steadily arising within to rest again inside my own heart-retreat. I do not have any grand ideas or projections about the fruits it will yield.

Here I am extending this invitation to you, my Sangha, to enter into your own inner retreat over this coming month or so. Most of you, of course, have activities and work that must continue, but at the same time I encourage you to be in this inner state and to stay very conscious of the Self even while the outer activities go on. Spend time really sitting and imbibing what I have pointed to as your true nature and position as the unchanging, unmoving awareness. It is not difficult. The pointing is very straightforward, very clean, very clear, but you need to sit with it and not be impatient. And watch…not only the things which keep coming and going but That which does not come and go—the awareness Self. Be one with That for it is not separate from you. Notice that your work and daily activities are spontaneously flowing even better as you keep your mind inside your heart.

This invitation is for all who seek the Truth and are in the hearing of this, wherever you are. Take this chance to keep your attention inside the heart of being. Each time the mind drifts away bring it back to silent, formless awareness. Inside, you must remain, know and confirm yourself as the unmoving One. And this harmony between the unmanifest and the manifest as one integral wholeness will reveal itself as your fundamental nature. Gradually, pure understanding will transmute into final awakening.

Nothing learnt in this world stays with you profoundly if it only stays in your mind as concepts. You must drink my words and pointers in deeply. It is like when you are in love, you welcome and embrace love totally inside so it becomes one with your being. This falling in love-ness, this internalising of the attention, is a very natural thing. It is not a wasteful movement. It is not a personal attainment. It is a universal impulse expanding and expressing itself as blessedness and love to the world.
Being aware of the Self compels and propels us out of the ignorant role and state of personhood and into Universal Consciousness. So while daily life unfolds, I am encouraging you to keep your attention immersed in the source which is your true Self.

Finally, please give this your full-hearted attention: continue growing in your love, respect and service to one another. It is a very mature and illumined Sangha that learns from and inspires each other towards full awakening to the timeless Truth. A true Sangha supports and encourages this truthfulness and integrity to face what is true and what is false without sacrificing the love, harmony and deep respect that are the perfume of the One Self. Without love, there is no Sangha and no real life. I do not know if there is anywhere else on this planet where love, wisdom and Truth are so profoundly alive and venerated as here inside the Sahaja-Heart.

Beloved ones, don’t waste your life pursuing the ephemeral. Transcend ego. Don’t miss your chance.

Timeless love
Moojibaba

Monte Sahaja, Portugal.

If I take you as a person, I cannot serve you.

I can only help you because I don't believe you. I don't believe the things you say to be true, when you speak from personhood...

And this is why I can look at you because if I saw you to be something other than what I know in my heart, I could not look at you in the face. I could not love you as I do.

I pray soon you will know that.
