Sahaja Journal – Winter 2017/18
(with subtitles) [Mooji] We have not spent the winter in Europe
for very many years, and we are very much enjoying
these early stages of it. [music] ‘Beloved One’ by Krishna Prasad. [Friend] Yes, yes. It is very nice, very nice. [Mooji] OK, get on with it then.
[laughter] [music continues] [Friend 1] Come and have a look here.
[Friend 2] It looks very nice. [Mooji] The fruit of the spirit is love
and peacefulness, compassion, empathy, openness. Why do people love to come to this place? These are the same trees as over beyond the hills. The difference is that here we venerate Truth, we venerate God, and we live it. [Friend 1] Mahavir. Hey there! [Friend 2] Hey Mukti! Love you. [sound of the bell] [Mooji] It is nice. [Mooji] Love becomes your climate. But a love that is profound,
that is without need or trickery. [Mooji] And remember, Sahaja means,
the natural state. It is not a contrived state.
It is the natural state. [Mooji] Gradually, something is being absorbed
in the unspeakable. [Mooji] What do we want to say?
[Sangha] Thank you! [Mooji] What else do we want to say?
[Sangha] We love you! [laughter] [Mooji] You know, you are going to
have to sing again. [laughter] [Krishna Prasad] Do you want me to sing another song?
[Mooji] Yes. [music] ‘This Little Light of Mine’
by Harry Dixon Loes, performed by Krishna Prasad. Christmas [music continues] Village Christmas Celebration [music continues] [women of the village sing] [music continues] Sahaja Choir at the Village Church [music continues] Blanket knitted by the Sangha [Friend] Babaji, this is a gift from all of us
to you for Christmas. [Mooji] Wow, that is amazing!
That is amazing. [music] ‘April’ by Vladislav Shiryaev. London, UK St Matthews Church, Brixton [M.] I haven’t come here for a very long time, and we are just visiting now. It was intended to be a kind of life size-ish,
but it is a bit smaller. Stained glass by Moojibaba 1986 This is the risen Christ
and this is Mary Magdalene, and the tree of life, that somehow binds them. [Vicar] When she first meets him,
she thinks that he is the gardener. [V.] She is obviously in great grief, because she’s just watched him being crucified. She says to the gardener,
‘Where have you taken him?’ [V.] And he says, ‘Mary’.
[Mooji] Yes. [V.] And she says, ‘Ah! My Lord, my God.’ [V.] What is so amazing, I think, about this, is that these are the hands you want to touch,
you want to hold them, but he is just showing them to you. We need to witness him in a different way now. That’s why I love it.
[laughter] [V.] Thank you, for what you do.
[Mooji] Thanks to you. [Mooji] It is this one. Yes. This was where I used to sell incense, initially. This was my incense place here.
And there used to be Frank. I don’t know what happened to Frank now. The police stopped me from moving around,
selling with the bell, and he allowed me to stay here. [music] ‘Way Down At Your Feet’ by Sam Garrett. [Mooji] Wherever we go,
whether we are single or together, we move in the presence and the power,
and the force of God. Satsang, Brixton [Mooji] Om. Namaste everyone. Welcome to this very wonderful gathering. You are discovering what, sometimes, people have spent
many, many years trying to discover. This is more here
than the idea you have of yourself. This here is your eternal existence. [music continues] [Mooji] Can you sing something for me? [Child and Mooji sing together]
Sita Ram, Jai Jai Ram. [Friend] Satguru Sri Moojibaba ki!
[Sangha] Jai! [Mooji] Wonderful. [Mooji sings] Da, da, da.
It’s the Isley Brothers. Ha, ha! Yeah man. This is the tune, this is the tune. [music] ‘Summer Breeze’ by Seals and Crofts, performed by The Isley Brothers. [Mooji sings with the music] [music continues] [Mooji sings] Makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
[laughter] [music continues] [Mooji sings] Oh, summer, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind. Oh, summer, makes me feel fine … Returning from London Moojibaba’s Birthday [music] ‘Blinded by Your Grace’ by Stormzy,
performed by the Sahaja Choir. [Mooji] It’s so beautiful
that we are sitting together today. All of you, you are my birthday present today.
[laughter] [Sahaja Choir sings] [Mooji] In each of you, your heart is bearing
this fruit of perfect awakening, beyond merely intellectual or mental convictions, but as the experiential truth,
because only that will do. Everything here,
that this life can be in service to, may it be for that. That through you also this great gift of grace can continue to bear innumerable fruits. Like yeast, it keeps spreading, so that the realisation of Truth
becomes contagious again on this planet. Hallelujah to the Truth. Thank you. [Friend] So today we have the first
of the big, big olive beings coming. Ancient Olive Tree Planting [Friend] The ancient, ancient trees, and, yes, this is not the biggest one,
but it is quite huge. So let’s see how it goes. [music] ‘Glory to God’ by Siddhartha Corsus. [Mooji] There is nothing greater than
that pure consciousness. And even looking at this tree, which is only again a very beautiful expression of time and change, and form, arising out of the formless. And this formless I know as the mighty God,
the mighty Truth, the imperishable, the unborn, the uncreated. And is the reason why we continue to meet
and immerse ourselves in That, and to be absorbed in That, which we have come to discover
is our innate being. [Friend] We are following this amazing tree,
and we are just blessing him. And he is blessing us, and we are all blessed. [Mooji] And because of that
we have found real happiness, real joy, even in this world. When we see the expressions of grace that produce such a
magnificent manifestation of grace, we are again thrown back
into the heart of our own being. To baptise our mind again in That which is timeless and which is imperishable. Never forget that that is why you came here. Monte Sahaja should always be regarded
as a monastery, as a temple, as an ashram, because only veneration for the supreme Being
takes place here. And that is our walk, that is our daily breath
and our bread each day. [Friend] In the truck we spoke about this tree, and how it is one of the oldest on the land, and the centres of all these olive trees
become hollow. The older they get, the more they mature,
the more empty they are. We felt that that was quite lovely. Lisbon Intensive
[music] ‘Remember’ by Omkara. [Mooji] Grace is so much with you, step by step, breath by breath. Grace is with you. It has brought you so far. It will never abandon you. By turning your attention inside the heart,
you are waking up. Waking up from this long sleep of personhood into that bright awareness itself. For this reason we came here. [Mooji] As souls, how long we have been journeying [Mooji] on the face of this planet, we don’t know. But today matters. [Mooji] That you are
in the hearing of these things, matters. [Mooji] That you know who you are,
what you are, matters. [Mooji] To escape from the wheel of samsara,
matters. And yet you still cling to seeds [Mooji] that will cause you
to perish and to suffer. [Mooji] And these must be rooted out. Our true nature is imperishable, timeless. Grow in that inner confidence.
Trust in what has been revealed to you. Walk in the light of your own understanding. So many flowers are blossoming
in this field of satsang. It is beautiful to see. This is not a story book. It is living guidance for living beings. So you hold this feeling inside your heart,
‘I am chosen for freedom’. For this reason we came here. Copyright © 2019 Mooji Media Ltd.
