The joy of the Absolute

I know I promise to post about plantar faciitis.  But right now my mind and attention is not in the right balance.  So, let's us just read about Shri Mataji's speech first.  Will post about the miracle on plantar faciitis next post.
 
THE JOY OF THE ABSOLUTE Like water does not stay on the Lotus leaf, so you become 'Kalatita', you become 'Dharmatita'. You become 'Gunanita'. Means, you go beyond the three 'moods' (Gunas) with which you are born, left, right and centre.
The left one in the one by which you have emotional attachments of your attention. The second one (right) is the physical and the mental attachments. And the third one (centre), is the attachment to the dharma, attachment to be righteous and to make other righteous, of disciplining others and disciplining yourself... Where a person tries to control all his enemies of lust, anger, pride, vanity, attachments and greed.
All these restrictions on the attention get lost and you become a free person of complete wisdom. Your attention itself becomes dharmic. So you lose all your gunas and you become 'Satgunis', means virtuous, not by discipline, but spontaneously. You become righteous SPONTANEOUSLY!
Sometimes such people puzzle you. Like Christ took a stick in his hand and beat people who were selling things in the presence of God, in the sense, in front of the temples. According to laws, we should not have temper, but his temper is a temper of a 'Gunatita' and such a temper is a spontaneous happening, which is not to be analysed, it has to happen.
The temper of the Devi on the rakshasas, the killing of the rakshasas... Krishna telling Arjuna that "You have to kill all these people, they are all dead already". They all get explained because you go 'beyond' , in the 'Atita', beyond conditions. Only the one who can control is beyond. The one who is in it cannot control it.
If you have to pull in a ship you have to be on the shore, the one who has gone beyond can only do that. So you go beyond, in 'Atita'. But, when it comes to knowledge about such a person, you cannot think, because such a person is beyond thinking. You cannot describe because such a person cannot be described.
You cannot say why Socrates agreed to take the poison. Why Christ agreed to get crucified. That is beyond human comprehension. That is how you behave beyond human comprehension and you are not to take 'certificates' from human beings. Your 'certificates' come from God Almighty and not from these human beings who are at a lower level. It would be like a dog writing about human beings.
So you reach a state which can be described with the word 'a', that means 'without'. So such a person is without thought, he does not think. Such person is without greed, such a person is without lust, devoid of it. Such a person is said to be 'ascesa': 'Out of which nothing is left out'. Like when you want to make a vacuum, you go on creating the vacuum. Reach any point and the vacuum cannot be completed because it reaches a point all the time where you find some part of it remains. You cannot have a complete vacuum. But such a person has a complete vacuum - a vacuum of all the negative, aggressive qualities - complete, they do not exist.
Such a person is an eternal being nobody can kill, nobody can harm, nobody can hurt. The hanger of anyone or respect of anyone does not touch such a person. He is not disturbed by insults or non-insults. He is not elated by prayers, because he is devoid of the capacity to enjoy the boons of the ego.
So at the third state he reaches he gets the blessing of the word 'Nih'. Nih is the first word of my name, but in Sanskrit, when you combine it with 'Mala', then it becomes 'Nirmala' (Pure). But the word is Nih...
...But this word nira or nih, is used in two forms... One for say: 'Without' or 'Devoid of'. Then another form is: 'The only', 'The absolute joy, nothing but joy. It is complete freedom.
So you have all kinds of joys, as I told you before. You have Svananda - the joy of the spirit, then you have got Brahmanada - the joy of well-being. You have got Leelananda and Krishnananda - where you have the joy of the play. But when you reach the state of Sahasrara it is NIRANANDA - means, sheer absolute joy. Although the name 'Nira' is my name, it means 'Absolute'. So when you put such an adjective before anything else it becomes absolute. Thus YOU become absolute. And when you are at that state of absolute then there is no place for anything else to be there but yourself.
But let us see what is 'Absolute'? That means it is not relative, it has no relative qualities. Absolute cannot be compared (Atuliya) it cannot be compared. It cannot relate to anything, it is absolute. It cannot be comprehended because it cannot be related to anything else through which we can comprehend. It is absolute. Whatever way you try to know it, you go away from the absolute. Wherever you try to analyse the absolute, you are away from it. So this is what at Sahasrara you get - 'Nirananda' (Sheer joy).
In different stages of Sahaja Yoga we had to start from 'Sarirananda', means the ananda (Joy) of the body; 'Manasananda', the joy of the 'Manas', the psyche. Then you can say 'Ahamkarananda', where you have to have the satisfaction of the ego. But the state that now has to be established within us is of 'Nirananda'.
Then what is the question of fear? What is the question of talking about it? You cannot talk about it, because how will you relate it? I cannot say "It is like this, it is like that". There are no words to describe the Absolute.
Only by negation: 'not this, not this' and what remains is absolute. So you reach the state of absolute and that is the state a complete communication is established and in that communication you have nobody else but the absolute within you.
That is the level to which you should aspire. That should be the ascent. We should be established within ourselves. We do not have to go to the Himalayas, we do not have to do anything drastic. Remaining in this world, we have to become the Absolute, the 'Only' (Kevalam). There is nothing like "How?" for it. You just become. You just become, like a flower becomes the fruit. It is all built in, within you. Allow it to work out.
Just by surrendering you become. Surrender it and you will be surprised; you will be at the state where you will enjoy your absoluteness. It is absolute love, it is absolute compassion, it is absolute power. The words stops, the description stops. You just become the absolute and feel your absoluteness through it with the oneness. If somebody is not with you, you do not worry. There is no company needed. You are alone enjoying the Absolute. Only there can you also enjoy the Absolute in others, in the best form, without seeing anything else but the Absolute.
