    “God pervades the body in the form of essence”. Then all one sees, does become divine. One who understands the truth that everything is within, alone can experience bliss. All that one learns from books is nothing but the reflection, the reaction and resound of the inner being.” Baba.
    above quote is not of ls. rest is from his pen.........

    According to the above the scope of the mind is cosmic; it is otherwise so! During the course of its elevation in divine path, its four different states control its empowerments, acquired after its diversification from external to inward. Whosoever denies these divine powers, he himself is ignorant of these and is a hoax, not a genuine seeker. Because these powers come automatically! One has, absolutely, no discretion in their acceptance or rejection. It is only that, present day masters do not want to undergo through long and difficult phases of spiritual Sadhna and the allied austerities. They learn by rote; few basics of their religions/faiths; don outer symbols and develop first class skill of oratory and sit on large thrones, condemn all, but glorify their own self!
    Any spiritual novice can display extraordinary powers of concentration, will, auto-suggestion, intuition, and telepathy. They can very easily undergo OBE (out of body experience). It is another matter these conditions of mind (not powers, as wrongly termed), should not be displayed in public to earn cheap publicity or try to get some commercial benefits out of them. A genuine saint would be using them munificently, in a very natural way, to alleviate the sufferings of others and for the advancement of spiritual Sadhak(seeker). The ones, who forbid the usage of such a fine and noble qualities of the soul, are themselves bereft of them and join the hypocrites’ club of ignoramuses. Anyway it is not their subject. They joined the show, simply for some ulterior motives; not remotely related to the spiritual path of divinity. Any divine master would joyfully share his divine experiences with the aspirants and guide and guard them from uncalled for obstacles. It is part of his innate nature, to share and shower divine grace. Not to hide and be selfish!
    Suddenly we have come from death to mind and its immense powers that ultimately elevate the seeker to Divine-state. Yes, there is a link between them! Body is physical but the mind encased in it is subtle. So is the living-force in it! With the death of the body, these two don’t die but remain ‘intact’ in the same condition as these were, when the body was ‘live’. They do not originate from the body. Life-force enters foetus, when it is 72 days old. Mind is universal in nature and so is its conscious state. In creations—it is their conscious identities (shields: individual-selves) in miniature form. Vibrations travel in the entire universe. Even subtle thoughts emanate vibes. The vibrations which emanate from the individual mind merge with cosmic-mind, as these cannot be imprisoned within the confines of the body. It is an illusion that mind belongs to an individual and thus is singular entity. It is a singular entity but its scope of range is the entire cosmos. “It is my mind”—is just an illusion!
    So whether it is in ‘live’ body or in dead body, hardly makes any difference, as in both the conditions, it is eternal, omnipresent within the sphere of the Creation. The energy vibrations (electrical pulses, magnetic fields etc) that each body generate, merge with other similar vibrations coming from extra-terrestrial bodies and create one unified field and unite the entire creation in one entity, called C-I.C.
    Then how come, individual minds display very limited intelligence! Each and every mind has in it its storage, cosmic-intelligence, but only a fraction of it is used by the individual minds. Each mind is equipped with immense potential, only our endeavors are lacking. Look, how during the last sixty years, science has progressed in every branch of knowledge! In coming time, Nature would be its target of scope. If the latent intelligence in us is not activated to its fullest extent, it should not then be surmised—universal mind’s existence is myth!
    From scientists’ point of view, all living beings derive their knowledge from external elements. But as we understood earlier, each entity in Creation emanates vibrations and in them is embedded their own intelligence. The casual particles are more subtle, and their reflected vibrations are even more subtle. The atoms/particles of vibrations are very subtle in nature. No human sensor/gadget will ever be able to record their existence, when they are in their casual state—as their ‘existence’ is formless, mass-less; they don’t react, reflect and resound like their gross manifestations.
    Scientists have now found that a slight change in gravity would make earthly bodies behave quite differently! A planet with half the gravity on earth, would display conditions, which are beyond the scope of human imagination, especially of a laymen. The displacement of human body’s weight in such condition would be a few grams, hardly equal to the weight of a mouse. It would seem the trick of magic for some. But it is a fact. This planet does exist! Just imagine conditions in far off galaxies! There are stars, comets, quasars, supernova and other celestial bodies, whose gravity is either, unimaginably dense or very weak. Imagine such bodies supporting just one or two dimensions or even more than four dimensions! It is mind boggling even for a scientific brain! Then what would a layman make out of these conditions and their resultant effects on the bodies which exist there! A mind staggering situation indeed!
    Therefore it is not wise to spurn the claims of the spiritualists about their genuine ‘research’, whose validity they are ready to affirm. No scientific theory is accepted as genuine until it is tested in laboratory conditions. That is the reason Prof. Stephen Hawking has not been honored with the Noble award, because his cosmic theories are not testable. These are based on mathematical equations. As no scientific instruments have yet been invented which could probe the deepest core of the universe or the event-horizon—the conditions of black hole, so his theories remain theoretical and not scientific discoveries like that of Newton or Einstein! On the other hand, the claims made by the spiritual Sadhak of ‘Divine experiences’—can easily be tested under controlled conditions by the scientists of the physical world! Then why not give them their due respect and regard for their discoveries and inventions, which had been achieved and attained after life long experimentations—Sadhna of inner-science, the science of Self i.e., Divinity! The elite’s main allegation against the spiritualists, is that they do not hold university degrees and are thus uneducated class and their ‘claims’ have also not been tested in university’s labs, hence not worth consideration. They conveniently forget that there are countless examples of physical scientists who possessed no degrees and had no formal education; even then they had contributed a lot in the field of scientific advancement. On the contrary, the spiritualists do have formal education of their fields from expert specialists, whose every word is testable, as it is based and sourced from wisdom.
    It is another matter, if the ‘intellectuals’ are intentionally prejudiced toward them without having a ‘go’ at their ‘works’, ‘words’, ‘wisdom’ and the ‘Divine-powers’ they so philosophically display! Why do we call their ‘divine’ marvels as magic or miracles, when these can be easily captured through sophistical cameras! The fact remains, the elite class of intellectuals is brought up and educated in a an environment, where values of life are considered ‘fads’ or the legacy of the forgotten past, good only for museums, zoos or within the precincts of the temples. Indeed a sad day for the human intellect!

    Human Challenge.
    Each age has its own problems, aims and challenges. But the biggest of them is staring at us. We are doing everything to solve all our other problems, but that challenge remains unmet and unsolved! It is the Self—Aathma, the eternal enigma, which the scientists spurn as hoax, and Godmen eulogize it as myth! Only few plunge in the unknown mystery of the Self, and come out fully realized to tell the world its Reality. Their number is very small as hardly anybody takes it (Self) seriously, with the devotion it deserves!
    Problems and challenges vary from age to age, as each age has its unique circumstances. The priorities to tackle them also vary, as the mindsets of every age are at variance. The mindset is determined by many factors, chiefly, IQ, EQ, SQ levels. However our present age is uniquely placed. It is going through mental revolution of a material sort. Its intelligence is engaged in developing ‘intelligent’ materials to replicate human functions. Let us have a quick look at its present social structure and their related conditions, so that a factual overview of its problems and challenges could be understood.
    The world is divided between haves and have-nots. There are developed (read rich) countries and the developing (read poor countries). Less than 500 billionaires possess more than 80 percent wealth of the worlds, and the remaining 20 percent wealth is left for the poor countries to fend for themselves, whose population constitutes more than 80 percent of the entire world. The U.S.A. alone possesses more than 50 percent wealth of the world. These under-developed, under-nourished countries do not even possess basic necessities of life, whereas the less than 20 percent population (read white), of a dozen countries consumes more than 80percentage resources of the world. A civilized race must provide the basic necessities like, food, potable water, shelter and clothes, to all human beings; because these resources come free from Nature and these were made available by it for all its creations. This clearly connotes that our governing system is wrong. Nature is equitable in nature and precept, whereas human race is neither believes, nor practices equality. This persistent disease needs to be banished by reminding the ‘imprisoned’ populace, again and again, to wake up from slumber and unshackle their bonds of slavery.
    Even our social structure is false and biased. Animals are better than us, as they rear their siblings in congenial family atmosphere. Their children are taught every discipline of life and are thus prepared to face any type of eventuality. They are given priority in food: taught hunting lessons: and above all the art of survival. But human beings behave much below the levels of animals. In our human front, there are special five star schools, hospitals, and posh living areas, luxurious modes of conveyance, hotels, resorts, and clubs catering to every imaginative depravity: so much so there are VVIP death facilities for the have-alls. Poor are left to their own mercy. All Governments and their entire machinery are corrupt. They usurp all the social benefits reserved for the poor. There are some social perks in the rich countries, but conditions prevailing in the poor countries are simply abominable. In this respect too, human race is despicable. The constitutions of all counties proclaim equal opportunities for all—except Islamic counties where women are deprived of normal human rights under their laws.
    In the recorded history the present situation is no better than it was 1000 or 5000 years ago. There is, incorrigibly no change in human behavior, as there is no change in animal nature. Both deport according to their innate nature—sensual. The animals too have minds, but their horizon is small in range and scope. Their mind does not function beyond the range of the influences of their senses, as it is conditioned by their basic necessities. Animals have never tried to conquer human race. They do not leave their natural habitat and try to usurp the palatial mansions of human race, which are equipped with luxurious comforts. Their minds are deprived of the quality of imagination. A majority of human beings too stoop down to their level, even though they are endowed with superior intelligence. Being born in this august race, they behave like animals, because they use their power of imagination for their sensual satisfaction only. Most of the human inventions are either for their material and sensual comfort or for destruction. We are inventing gadgetry which would replicate the functions of our senses. We are inventing those things, which the Nature has already provided for. Understanding the Nature is one thing, but to produce its replicates is, merely wastage of time, energy and materials. What could cloning achieve? Has computer provided food for the hungry!

    The psychology of the poor countries is to follow rich, as we are baited by their doctored ideas. Today we are thrown the bait of IT revolution, genetically grown seeds, biotic, genome coding/tempering, rocketry and such like high sounding ideas. Prior to this, it was insecticides, fertilizer, high rise dams—the temples of India! etc. Look what these innovations have done to our lands! Like fools and slaves, we follow our past masters. We have surplus land, man-power, natural resources and intelligence: what we lack is proper education. Like our masses our political leadership is illiterate; they simply do not know how to handle the sophisticated machinery or know even their rudiments. The problem is not of demand and supply, but lack of education; leave aside technical/professional/super-specialties level expertise. A nation which does not even spend three percent of its GDP on education is rearing only animal like society. What good is that science or its discoveries/inventions, if their benefits do not reach the poor? What good are computers to the poor, if they are empty stomach and illiterate! These are useful for a chosen few or in certain fields of advance specialties. But it is not a mass commodity, which is being hyped about.
    Again, the type of education being provided is the legacy of our past masters. With the result, the nation is producing a nursery of technocrats, professional, business magnates, media barons, of bulls and bears, whose only aim is to earn-grow-multiply money and money alone. Thus our society is producing an elite class of money-minters, whose only moral is anything but ethical. They produce, create, eulogize only money and its mentors and assess their merits in monetary terms only. This special and privileged class of money Moguls has their own morals and values, which are in complete contrast to the ethical values of gone by eras, but are very much at par with their masters’ norms. They openly indulge in immorality and money-making values instead of human values. This exclusive club, whose membership does not exceed a few hundreds, is producing a new category of ‘slaves’, the robots to help them rule over the rest of the world. Their population, throughout the history had been static, as they were unable to produce more children—thus could flourish their fraternity! The people with mission expend their energies in achieving their goals, leaving their bodies depleted. Extremely charged minds—potent minds relegate the bodies impotent. “Potent minds with impotent bodies”!
    There has always been a distinct class division between the haves and have-nots, on the bases of distribution of wealth and not religion. Though ostensibly made out to be so, religions have never been the cause of this division. A deep study shall reveal that nobody really believed in the ‘existence’ of God. Everybody is an atheist. This may sound preposterous but it is a fact. There were wars, fought in the name of religions, by kings and zealots but never between Saints/Masters/Messiahs. Wars were fought between the conquerors or because of clash of egos, for wealth, pride and territory. Aurangzeb was not a Muslim Prophet or a Saint even, but he effected forced conversions, only with the strength of state power.
    The religions were never meant for ‘knowing’ God, but the man-made system of life, for improving the quality of life, both morally and socially. New societies emerged, by following particular ways, initiated by their Masters. No conqueror could ever establish a new social order. Only religions ‘cultured’ great civilizations. Science brought about material progress, but the real foundation of any civilization is laid only on the maturity of ‘thought’, whose ingredients are human and moral values. We are called human, because of the associated qualities, which are the essential part of our innate nature—which is ‘purity’ itself.
    Having been born with the quality of ‘intellect’ (discrimination), we should not be carried away by sensual pleasures like dogs and monkeys, who also experience similar sensual pleasures that we indulge in. To differentiate from animals, we must deport at the human level—the intellect. But the modern man is concerned only about material progress and creature comforts, completely disregarding his innate nature and human qualities of truth, righteousness, peace and love. But worldly influences have gripped the man so intensely that he is in the mad pursuit of money till his last breath. Now who in his right, i.e., material senses would pursue the noble qualities?
    The path to Self is sacred. A sensual person can acquire immense wealth, power and pelf, but not Self-realization. Ephemeral and transient world is outside, whereas the world of Self is inside. There is no doubt, in conquering the worldly heights; the same tool is used as it is used in the attainment of the Self. This quality of ‘intellect’ serves dual purpose. The power of its use lies in the hands of the user. The contrasting influences of their goals are so dissimilar in nature that their starting points are worlds apart. Not that their reverse journey is irreversible. Their foundation being same, any adventurous soul can degenerate or elevate to the other end. The barrier of ‘divide’ between them is so fragile that their common meeting ground is not a non-possibility!
