Beloved Friend! Joy!
I want to share some feelings with you with the intent of lightening the weight of this moment of your journey. It is especially for those of you who are under the pressure of the collective mind, in large urban centers where violence grows alarmingly every day.
As I have shared at other times, we are at the apex of Parivartan, the great planetary transformation, and this is no small thing. I know that words cannot express this phenomenon in its entirety. At the same time, words are a way to create a space of understanding and comfort.
During this cycle of Saturn, we must double-down on our attention and refine our discrimination when it comes to choosing the environments and situations in which we involve ourselves. I like to make analogies of the moments we pass through to scenes in movies. You can compare this cycle of time with the scene from the 6th Harry Potter film when evil enters Hogwarts. This is the beginning of the most important part of the film. The battle between good and evil is fierce and radical decisions and choices have to be made in order for good to overcome evil.
When I think of 2014 and 2015, I say, “Fasten your seatbelts; we are entering a zone of turbulence!” The power of love is growing and the potential for it to awaken in people is very real. But with this, the shadows get desperate and try to overtake your confidence.
Your seatbelt is sadhana. But you can also use an "invisibility cloak" that ensures that evil does not see you—gratitude. If you can be thankful for the miracle of life and for all the good you have received, you become invisible to evil. Gratitude has the power to stop psychological time, and the presence it evokes opens a field of infinite possibilities. As such, besides practicing japa (repetition of mantra), meditation (even it’s just 5 minutes daily, divided into 5 periods of 1 minute, as I have taught), prayer and selfless service, I am calling your attention to the intentional use of gratitude.
I have repeatedly said that gratitude opens the portals of the celestial realms, but I know that few can hear this simple teaching and put it into practice due to their commitment to evil. Complaining and whining activate the victim inside of you and feed a dreadful sense of deficiency that never ends. In this way, self-perpetuating cycles are activated in the negative universe and you descend, plummeting into a free-fall. And just when you think you've reached rock bottom, you continue to fall even further. We know that the opposite is also true. Self-perpetuating cycles can be activated in the positive universe, and you can expand in infinite form. For this, it is necessary to interrupt the downward spiral. And this is possible when, through conscious will, we put creative power in motion in the service of goodness. But this will only be possible when you can truly be grateful for life.
So I suggest that, through gratitude, you take this step towards happiness and spiritual protection in these times of such difficult transition. Thank God for the miracle of being alive and for everything that you can already thank. Just remember that this power cannot be put into action if the appreciation is just for show. This magic is only possible when you allow yourself to truly feel gratitude in your heart. So you attune yourself with light and love. And it is this light that will dissolve the pacts with evil that have caused so much suffering in your life.
I suggest you renounce whining, that you break definitively with any type of allegation or complaint regarding things you do not even understand. I have already said, and I repeat: If you want to have peace in life, it is necessary to renounce the game of blame and judgment.
Remember that Saturn does not mess around. Watch your thoughts, your words and your actions, because this is a troubled time of important decisions.
Whom do you serve? Who is your master? If you want to be a channel of love and wisdom, to enjoy peace and prosperity, you need to stop being a channel of gossip and war. Learn to shut your mouth and avoid speaking of your brothers and sisters, because this negativity directed at the other automatically and immediately returns to you, in an even more intense form.
Be a channel of kindness and blessings. Pray for your brother. Send the vibration for him to be happy. This needs to happen all the time, at least once a day. Because it is useless to pray, “LOKA SAMASTA SUKHINO BHAVANTU, OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI” (may all beings be happy and peaceful), if you continue to irresponsibly be a channel of fear and hatred, separating with contention, discord and evil.
The time has arrived to be steady and determined in doing good. The main keys to this period of transition are gratitude and prayer. So we move forward, and little by little we are lifted, until we can spiritualize ourselves enough to see life through the eyes of the spirit instead of the eyes of the material. Because it is these spiritual eyes that allow us to see the game in its most comprehensive form, illuminating the understanding that keeps us from falling into the trap of judgment. This trap of judgment only creates more negative karma and entangles us even deeper in the web of suffering.
It is time to rise. But it is like climbing a ladder: without attention, it's easy to lose your balance and fall. And the fall can be big and painful. But even if this happens, I suggest you do not whine. If you fall, just get up and renew your vows. That which happened just one second ago is already gone. The chance for freedom is here and now, it’s not what happened a second ago. If you fall in the mud, don’t just lie there, trying to understand why you fell or philosophizing about it. Just get up and continue on. Renew. Your only chance to experience freedom is here and now, and gratitude brings you to the present moment.
To help you keep that in mind, and this is only a suggestion, I propose that at least during this period, in addition to your regular practices, we make a global chain with the Gayatri mantra for 24 hours. I suggest we start at 8:00 AM Brasília time/GMT on Sunday, November 24 until 8:00 AM Brasília time/GMT on Monday, November 25. Regardless of where you are, commit to at least an hour, and the more time the better. The repetition of the mantra can be taken internally or out loud and can be done alone or with a group of friends. Do as you wish. The chain will happen naturally, considering that people from around the world will be repeating the mantra for at least one hour. Even if there is some empty space when no one is doing the practice, it will not affect the current. But I suggest that from at least from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Brasília time/GMT, everyone can perform this practice. During that hour we will connect and strengthen the current.
With this, some of the dark clouds of fear and hatred that have been triggered can be dispelled by the growing power of love during this cycle of Parivartan.
If you just received this proposal and it seems confusing, do not worry. Just try to devote an hour (between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM, Brasília time/GMT) to repeat the Gayatri mantra. You can do it how and where you want, either repeating it internally or saying it out loud. Just connect with the transcendental power of this mantra, which has the power to raise the energy and turn the shadows into light.
And remember that I'll be with you, today and always.
I will soon offer more suggestions and actions to facilitate your journey through this cycle of time.
With love and blessings,
