The spiritual masters, sears and saints talk about a region of ever lasting peace residing in us. This vastly unexplored and unattended region lies waiting to be visited in the hum-bum of everyday life. Monumental events that bring about unbearable chaos make the mind run helter-skelter, tiring it to such an extent that it gives up its childish pranks and listens to the dictum of the consciousness to follow it. As a true friend, a guide and a master; the consciousness; guides the mind for a glimpse of this source of perennial happiness. A realm of love, that resides in our hearts. The forgotten lands. A single breath in this realm is sufficient to spur to life the dead cells of the mind, which jumps in joy, as a child which has found the ultimate play thing. There is a day of Chaos… but it is followed by days of peace…

Speaking about the art of meditation… Baba says…

As a sadhaka (spiritual aspirant), you must first learn the secret of ‘inward vision’, and take your attention away from the exterior world. Divine life is nothing but this method of ‘inward living’. Just as the baby after learning to watch and understandtries to toddle hither and thither at home, so also the spiritual aspirant slowly learns to navigate and understand the inner world. A healthy baby in the cradle, watching the lamp on the wall, waves its arms and legs in glee, and lisps in joy. Likewise the spiritual aspirant, healthy in body, mind and soul, lying in the cradle of life, watches the interior world and claps his/her hands ceaselessly in great delight on experiencing that inner joy.
