Even Raja Yogi, Mahavatar Babaji, Walks Around With People, With Disciples

Swami Vishwananda offers a substitute for meditation:
I met a yogi in India who is about two hundred years old; even more than that. Of course, among all the yogis, the Raja Yogi, Mahavatar Babaji is more than five thousand years old. Raja Yogi means the king of all yogis. But even Mahavatar Babaji walks around with people, with disciples [does not meditate all the time].

Meditation is very good. Once you start the spiritual path, the first thing you are told is to sit down and meditate. But you can’t meditate twenty-four hours a day. . . So, we can’t meditate all the time, especially here in the West. But there is a substitute for meditation and that is the thought. The mind that God has placed in humans is very powerful. You can create or you can destroy with it. It’s up to each one of you to control the thoughts. So the first thing and the best thing in spirituality that you can do is to control the thought... First, we have to change the negative thoughts about ourselves and then we can change the thoughts towards other people. As long as we judge ourselves, we only look at the negative parts of our own self.

Thought is very easy to control. You don’t need to sit down to control it. When the thought is passing through your mind, you know about the thought. You know whether it is positive or negative. So if it is positive, it will be constructive, then feed it and let it grow! But when the thought is negative, do not to feed it. Then you say to yourself, “This is not me.” And you let go of the negative thought.

When you let go of the negative thoughts, you will see how beautiful your own life is and how great this life is that God has given us. Also your meditation will be easier. The powerful thoughts are the positive energy in human beings. Through thoughts, whatever you wish for yourself, whatever you think about, you will receive it.
