Cleanse the Mirror of your Heart

Share

I desired to have Maharaji come visit my home but kept putting off asking him. I had told Dada of my desire, hoping that he could help me to invite Maharaji. I had just met Maharaji for the first time a few weeks before. One day I was standing outside the window where Maharaji was, when he called me in. Just he and Dada were in the room. As I entered, I felt myself transcend into some other state of consciousness and was aware mostly of a great opening in the region of my heart chakra – but it was as a gaping, empty blackness. I could barely see with my eyes or hear with my ears, and I’m sure my mouth was hanging open. My eyes went unblinking.

The two were talking. Maharaji would look at me and speak to Dada, and Dada would translate what was said. Maharaji was saying he couldn’t come visit me because the people in the village where I was staying were all very wicked and they had no love for him. Then he sent me out of the room. Afterward, when I returned to my more habitual consciousness, I felt as though Maharaji meant that he could not come visit my heart, as it was filled with worldly desires and had no room for love of him – and that as a result of that darshan, he had cleared out my heart so that he indeed could come flooding in.

Maharaji says, “Cleanse the mirror of your heart and you will see God.”

Such peace and love I never got from anyone in the whole world, not from mother, not from father, not from wife, not from anybody. Extraordinary.

    A DIRTY NAKED MAN AS A GODLY MAN-when Christianity started achieving successes and spreading rapidly among the common people, the Church in its zeal to attract more and more adherents went on imbibing every evil that was prevalent in society. Thus, saint-worship replaced the ancient deities. Images of Christ and Mary began to be worshipped instead of the idol of Horus and Isis. Christmas took the place of Saturnalia. Christian monks began to practice every kind of occult art like curing the sick by amulets and magic incantations, taking omens and fortune-telling, driving out spirits, etc., as were prevalent in ancient days. Likewise, since the common people LOOKED UPON A NAKED AND DIRTY PERON WHO LIVE IN CAVE AS HOLY AND GODLY MAN. This very concept of saintlihood became prevalent in the Christian Church, and legends of their miraculous powers began to abound in the memoirs of the Christian saints.

    HINDUSIAM-JAINISM-SUFISM -AND MOKSHA
    This was openly called to by some of the extreme Sufis, such as al-Husayn ibn Mansoor al-Hallaaj who Ideology is that of those who believe in hulool,[That Allah dwells and is incarnate in human beings]
    Followers of the Illuminist school of philosophy. They are those who give greater importance to the philosophical ideas overavoidance of the worldly life. What is meant by ‘Illuminism’ is that the soul is illuminated by light, which diffuses in the heart and is a result of spiritual exercises, training the soul and punishing the body in order to rectify and purify the spirit. This is something, which may be a characteristic of all Sufis,except that the people of this category draw the line here and do not fall into what those who claim that Allaah dwells within His creation fall into, or that everything is Allaah. [ONE TRUE GOD ISHWAR NAMED IN ARABIC AS ALLAH]
    However this is contrary to the teachings of Islaam and is taken from the Deviated Religions such as BUDDHISM and its like Attributed by al-Wakeel to the book at Tawaaseen of al Hallaaj (p.130).The following saying is attributed to him:
    The deology is that of wahdatul-wujood[THAT GOD IS INCARNATE IN HUMAN BEINGS] i.e. that all in existence is a single reality, and that everything we see is only aspects of the Essence of Allaah.[ONE TRUE GOD ISHWAR NAMED IN ARABIC AS ALLAH]

    The belief of Wahdat al-Wajood, which implies that the Creator (Allah) and the creation are one, and the creation is just the manifestation of the Creator.
    The Hindus, Buddhist and Jain religions unanimously agree on the concept that everything is the Creator (i.e. nothing exists other than God. The Creator and His creation are, in reality, one) and ultimately everything merges in Him (the Creator). This merging is basically the goal of worship in HINDUISM & BUDDHISM, WHICH IS ALSO KNOWN AS ‘MOKSHA.’
    WHICH THE CREATOR DENOUNCES BECASUE ALL THE PROPHETS AND SAINTLY MEN ARE BIRN THROUGH THE VAGINA OF WOMAN AND GOD THE MOST HIGH NEED NOT TAKE THE AUTHAR OR FORM OF FLESH WITH THE THIS LOWEST FORM OF CREATION WHICH COMES INTO THIS WORLD THROUGH THE ANIML SYSTEM OF REPRODUCTION TO TEACH PEOPLE THE WAY OF GOD-ITS ABSURD AND SHEER BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE LORD OF THE WORLDS-

    “And they say, ‘The Most Gracious Has betaken a son!’ Indeed you have put forth a thing most monstrous! At it the skies are bout to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin: That they attributed a son to the Most Gracious. For it is not consonant with the majesty of the Most Gracious that He should beget a son. Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to the Most Gracious as a servant. He does take an account of them [all], and numbered them exactly, and everyone of them will come to him singly on the day of judgment.” (Koran 19:88)
