OM LET THERE BE PEACE – OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI – CONSCIOUSNESS
In this discourse from 14th January 1993, Papaji speaks about consciousness.
In an instant of time, consciousness experiences vast infinite periods of creation, endlessly, but is not affected by any happening or non-happening. Within the consciousness there is no difference between subject and object. All creations are happening in this instant of time, where everything rises and falls. In this instant, there is also the realization that nothing ever has been created. In this instant you enquire who are you. If you don’t enquire this instant will infinitely hang over you.
Papaji mentions that in the West we are attached to suffering but this can be avoided because it is not real as it is not permanent.
“We don’t believe in suffering here. You are bliss itself. Happiness is your nature. Where there are others you are dreaming. Even now you are dreaming. If you sleep for a wink of an eye, you wake up and you will see who you are. Means don’t touch a thought ‘I am a body’. Don’t think. If you don’t think for one second tell me where you have landed. It takes you only one second to be happy and in this one second, you will have tremendous bliss of timelessness. If you get rid of this ‘I’ for one moment you are free.”
