Sahaja Journal ~ Spring 2018


[sound of rain] [music] ‘I Will Overcome’ by Sangita,
performed by Sangita, Prem & Lluis Sahaja Journal
(with subtitles) Spring 2018 [Mooji] ‘I return again, like blossoms in spring. I return again, to break the lock of the prison, and the grip of the mind. I return to destroy the power of the mind that is eating away at the heart of human being.’ [music] Poem by Rumi – I Return Again [Mooji] Rumi said,
‘I return again, like the blossoms in spring’. ‘From the very beginning, I vowed to give my whole life to this path.’ Here’s a human being who says, ‘My life, I am not interested
in all the other things right now. It is just for this!
I have given my life for this.’ ‘If I were to break this promise, it would be like breaking
the very back of that which gives life to me.’ ‘This is my dedication in this life. If I were to turn away from this inner resolve, It would be like breaking the back of that
which gives life to me.’ ‘If you see the mind
seeming to take over your life, don’t worry. I have cut off its root, in a sacred way.’ Meaning, ‘Those who trust in me, in That, I am cutting its root on your behalf. Because you have said yes to me, and you let me come to your house. And I will destroy everything. I will destroy it madly, until nothing remains. I will destroy all the hiding places
of the evil one. I will root him out,
until nothing remains but You.’ [music] ‘I return again, to break the lock of the prison, and the grip of the mind. I return again, like the blossoms in spring.’ [Mooji] Beautiful. [music fades] Zmar – Silent Retreat [birds chirping] [Mooji] For thousands of years, throughout the history of humankind, beings have been gathering like this,
all over this planet. [music] ‘Årepolskan’ (Swedish Folksong) performed by Stefan Stistrup & Igor Malewicz [Mooji] They were called by some voice that is compelling them to search
for their origin, not just our physical origin, but who we are. [music] Uncountable numbers of beings have come. They have done their time. They have gone back into formlessness. And now it is our turn.
This is our season on this planet. [music] We are the living wave of the human experience. It is our turn to look into this most important subject, to make the greatest discovery
in the human kingdom, to find who you are. Not just who we take ourselves to be, not who we have been conditioned
to believe we are, but to discover the truth of our Self,
beyond personhood. Laughing Yoga This is our real connection. [music] [Mooji] It’s the Silent Retreat here in Zmar,
in April 2018, [Mooji] and this day is so wonderful, because what? Because everyone now is experiencing themselves as being in the harmony of God. They are in the harmony of the God-Self, which is the same
as being in the harmony with themselves, of their own Self. [music] A retreat that started in a great storm, now is ended on a beautiful sunny day. It is a metaphor for the mind. It started in the storm of the mind, and on this day, now we are in the full sunshine of our own being. [Mooji] Full power all the way!
[laughter] [Sangha] Yes.
[Mooji] See you in the mirror. OK? [Sangha] Love you, love you!
[Mooji] Love you, love you! [Mooji speaks in Portuguese]
A próxima Zmar! Muito obrigado. Muito prazer. [music] Team heads back to Sahaja by bus [music] [music fades] [music] ‘Wake Up’ by Prem,
performed by Prem, Sangita, Aine & Martin [Mooji] This is a stick up! [points water gun]
[laughter] [Mooji] What is your name? Daily Life. [Friend] Slow down on the steps. [music] First Sahaja Satsang Chair [Mooji] It’s the first satsang chair … [Friend] But it is very precious, this one. [Mooji] We want to introduce you to one of the founding fathers
and mothers of Monte Sahaja, who were here from the very beginning,
when I came here. They were so instrumental
in starting up with this place. This is Nihar and Amari. [Friend] Selfless service. [music] Papaji’s Cafe [music] [Mooji] One more in the corner there … [Friend] Great! One Sangha Gathering – Preparation [music] [Friend] Guruji, how many minutes till Satsang? [Mooji] About ten.
[laughter] [Mooji] OK. Here we go. It’s OK. We have been so much in the mood
of preparing for you, for your coming. [Mooji] Even last night, late, late,
we were going to warehouse [Mooji] to take things to put out. [Mooji] Krishnabai said to me this morning, ‘Guess what are we doing?
We are preparing, and they are here.’ [laughter] And I am like this
[mimes carrying something, then putting it down]. [Mooji] You hit me with my own lesson,
I want to say. [Friend] Guruji, on behalf of all of us,
thank you so much! [Mooji] Thank you, thank you. [Friend] Thank you so much.
What a homecoming, Guruji! [Mooji laughs]
[Friend] And what a home. [Friend] Guruji, I just like to offer you a poem of gratitude from all of us. [music] ‘Love Will Never Fade’
by Lluis Martinez Ten [Friend] It goes, O Happy day! O Happy day! There is really nothing left to say, when persons are getting washed away. They are burning in Sahaja’s white fire of grace, disappearing like camphor, without a trace. It is an end to the drama, and to the strife. [Friend in sangha] Moojibaba Ki!
[Sangha] Jai! [Friend] O what a sacred, blessed life. This one is for freedom, that’s for sure. Guruji, you brought us to heaven’s door. Here at Sahaja, it is a sacred land, created by the Master’s hand. Guided by God’s holy code, dedicated to awakening, is this abode. Each stone and brick, so divinely laid. Every structure so prayerfully made. Each tree, each flower urging us to recall the most important discovery of all. The full recognition of who we are, the one unmoving Polar Star. The love of Jesus, here shines so bright. The land illumined by the Christ Light. Buddha’s lesson, ‘Be aware. Be still’, is echoed by every stone and hill. Krishna’s flute here plays in the breeze, as in Shiva’s lap we sit in ease. Papaji’s message here is the norm, unmoving silence evident in every form. Nurturing it all, lovingly holding the space is our Sahaja family, a true river of grace. How has this land come to be? It’s the intent of our Master,
that we all walk free. It’s a land of grace, a land of prayer. Imbued with a naturalness, so precious, so rare. A land of love, and blessing, and mirth, Guruji, you brought heaven down to earth. Papaji Cafe Opening Day O Happy day! O happy day! There is really nothing left to say. [music fades] View from Monte Sahaja
[birds chirping] [music] ‘Sunday Morning’ by Vladislav Shiryaev [Mooji] Do not cling to any hopes or desires, or any sense of attachments. They are just clouds passing. Unlike a cloud, you are not passing. Like the infinite sky, you are here. Is the sky waiting? Does it have any favourite clouds? It is as though
you are looking out from this vastness. In this inmost place, what time is it there? What season? Is it created? Can there be an outside of it? Unlike a cloud, you are not passing. Like the infinite sky, you are here. Find the essence,
and the transient will not disturb you. Be at the place of zero. The Lord is waiting for you there. He is the satguru inside you. When you spend time in His company,
you will forget about ‘you’. Let it be so, let it be so. Hallelujah. Amen. Copyright ©2019 Mooji Media Ltd.
