We, as a whole country, are in the most active war ever fought on planet earth. Distance does not mean anything at all. There are certain things you have to understand now as spiritual people. You have more impact on your life than anybody else. Intuition is a good idea. Intuition is extreme sensitivity over the unconscious, sub-conscious and para-conscious. Para-conscious is that part of the psyche which is called the alter-ego of each person. It works for you. They call it ‘my alternative angel.’ You must have heard in the Catholic faith, “My angel guided me to this.” It’s just like guiding a missile.
Your sensitivity of feeling negative comes from three aspects. Let us say half a million people are fighting on the front. Half a million people have at least fifty million relatives. The whole media, the whole world is talking about it. Wherever you go, this is the subject. Now is the test of your spirituality, your positivity, and your prayer. It can only happen if you fill in your own inner self, Nirbhao, Nirvair, without fear, and without vindictiveness, and relate to the basic value of good for all. You can do it mentally, and it will do good for you mentally. Otherwise as this war proceeds, as war talk and actions proceed, as our economy, our social life, and our situation proceeds, you will have a difficult feeling because the human mind has the most active impact of parallel psyche. It’s not who crosses who–it’s a question of who affects who.
This whole world is a symbol. It’s not one unique world–my world or your world or our world. It is a Total World. And we carry in ourselves and around us a lot of pain of others. And we do not share or elevate the pain of others. That’s why our pain becomes bigger and bigger….
There is a possibility and there are warnings all over of terrorism. There is fury of war. There is fear. This whole world is into a cross-section, in cross-reaction, and in a cross-psyche. You have to understand that, and you have a very special role to play. You have to be ready that is the greatest service you can do as the Sikhs of the Guru.
I have been telling you all along, the time will come when people will knock at your door and you will not know why. People see peacefulness in you. You may be disturbed inside, you know, we are not lying to each other. I mean, we know ourselves. But to another person, you are a saint.
We fought wars. Bhai Khanaya was a Sikh of the Guru. He did not discriminate between the enemy asking for water or his own soldiers of war. The highest test of spirituality is, “Do good to those who have done wrong to you.” Spirituality is not a joke to crack. It’s a reality of life which we have to live. And I am warning you, you may not understand. You say, “I wear a turban and I wear white and I am just a Sikh and that’s all I want.” That’s not going to work out. People are going to make demands on you. People are going to ask you for help.
So wherever you are, you are the messengers of holiness. You have a status of a Gursikh. You represent Nanak. You represent Guru Gobind Singh. You are the real ambassadors in action. You’ll be expected to answer a lot of questions. You’ll be expected to behave in a very special way–especially those who are professional - doctors, chiropractors, business people, social counselors, psychologists. They will have a very special responsibility to be extra-positive. You’ll be working in factories, you’ll be working in offices, you’ll be working where a lot of people will expect something special out of you. This is the time when nobody’s going to know what your name is–they are going to know what your aim is. That is what war does to people. You have to be very full of aims. You have to understand, you have to be very affectionate, you have to be very loving, you have to be very elevating.
This is the real time when you can really serve Nanak in his soul and spirit and manifest it. What you couldn’t do all this time, is now the demand of the time. The character of a Sikh is very humble, very normal, and can produce extraordinary upliftment to the psyche. That’s what cherdi kala is. This is time to come to the Guru, to fulfill yourself and then Vand Chakko – share with others, your positivity, your spirit, and your soul, by embracing people who need it. This is the time to call on the homes you never have called. This is the time to talk to people whom you never have talked to. This is the time to be with people whom you cannot afford to be with. This is the time of your own realism. This is the time to test your own waters. This is the time to test your own depth. This is the time to test your own faith in Nanak. This is the understanding you have been built for. This is the understanding you have lived for. This is the understanding you have come for. And this is the understanding and action you have to perform.
Today I wanted to speak to you about “the experience of the soul in parallel consciousness.” But I understood the time and the need is for preparing the community. And I expect from you that you should all get on the telephone and call whomsoever you know, and whoever your friend is, and wherever you can reach. Give them the message to come out very positively. This is the time to be in the community, this is the time to be in the neighborhood, this is the time to exchange cookies.
You must understand these things because Naam Chit Aavai – “In your memory you should know you belong to God.” In your memory you should know the reality. And especially when these days are going to fill this atmosphere with tragedies. “Six shot down, sixty shot down, six hundred shot down. Thirty dead, forty injured...” This electro-media pounds on you. It pounds on your nerves. You switch on any time now; it tells you the shooting, the bombing, the killing. It’s a movie house now. And it’s going to affect us all.
Therefore in this, these are the real times of the power of prayer. This is the real time of bringing families together. This is the real time to visit each other and in divinity, this is the real time to stop duality. This is the real time to cleanse ourselves.
