Your Cosmic Mind

Lahiri Mahasaya, Mahavatar Babaji, Sri Yukteswar
Swami Vishwananda: Like I always say, have faith in your own Self. Have faith that what you are hearing within your heart is true. So many times you hear your heart, but you doubt it. You ask yourself, “Oh, is this really true or not?” You often have doubt like that. As long as you do not believe in what the Divine wants to show you, you will not advance.

The moment you sincerely have faith in what you feel inside your heart, it will manifest in the outside world. Like I say, God gave man the power to create, to have power over everything. You have within you the willpower of construction that comes from the constructive willpower inside the mind.

Deep inside the inner Cosmic Mind, therein lies also the Divine. That is the point where we have to use the mind to achieve the higher state. Very often we say the mind is something apart, something which is very negative. It is true that very often the mind is negative, but we have within us the power to transform it.

As long as man tries to hold onto even one material thing, he will stay on the material level. If you turn inward and focus on the Divine Within [your cosmic mind], the Self, you will feel great happiness and great joy. But for that you must lock in your faith.

Lahiri Mahasaya: Unless and until one humbles oneself, it is not possible to enter the spiritual realms.

Mahavatar Babaji: The worldly man wants to realize God while continuing his daily life. But problems will arise for him, time is short. A simple, unostentatious and highly effective Kriya Yoga is to be taught to him.

Sri Yukteswar: Wisdom is not a mere exhibition in one's dexterity in giving a lecture. The average scholar studies Philosophy superficially and searches only the outward meaning. In this light University degrees and honors seem inferior and are almost trivial. True darshan (philosophy) means self-realization.
