John Armitage/Hari Das Baba at a recent 13D Teacher Training:
You don’t have to struggle. Don’t struggle. You just have to remember your true essence, and we know what that is, don’t we: the divinity of Love. You’ve just got to remember that. Remember that this separation business is an adventure that we chose. We don’t have to struggle our way and claw our way back into Oneness. All we have to do is step back into the understanding, “Yeah, that’s it. I remember. We’re all One,” and change the way we relate with the matrix. This is the great thing. Change and the whole world changes with you. The whole universe changes with you. To get down to basics, you can’t piss in the corner over there without affecting the whole universe. This is the Oneness.
Once you say to yourself, “Yes, I understand this”—living in the energy of Divine Love isn’t a state of mind, it’s not an intellectual concept. You can know all kinds of things on an intellectual level, the question is, what are you doing about it? Knowing isn’t action. The mind says, “I’m very clever. I know this, I know that.” But the million dollar question is: what are you doing about it? Action is needed.
Intellectual knowledge is like dry bread. But if you start acting from your heart, it’s like putting butter and jam on the bread. Then it’s pleasant to eat and it slips down easy in the mouth. Once you act, it’s like putting the butter and jelly on the bread. So please do your best not to think too much. It’s analysis paralysis. The mind is loop-loop-loop-loop. The ego goes: “What if, what if, what if. More what if, what if, what if.” Don’t allow those loops to run through your mind. Break them somehow, with some kind of mantra like “I am that I am, the Mahatma in love” and “I affirm I am standing in my own power NOW. I Am that I Am.” Not tomorrow, not some time in the future. NOW. Because that’s where we’re living.
Do you know why they call the present the present? Because its a gift . Every moment is a gift, if only you choose to accept it. Marvelous, isn’t it, the adventures, what we’ve chosen our human lives to live. Marvelous! The sunshine today, the trees. It’s a marvel! We’ve chosen to experience this. The thoughts about ourselves and thoughts about all the things outside of ourselves, they’re irrelevant. This is the paradise on earth. Bob Marley is telling me now, “Yeah mon, tell em. The preacher man will tell you the heaven’s in the sky. But I’ll tell you heaven’s here on earth! Remind em of other things I was telling the whole world about. Could you be love? and Get up, stand up, now you see the light” It’s about standing tall in your own light, This is the message. He’s asking me to pass it on to you. “Stand up for your right”—it’s not about revolution and confrontation, but it’s about your birthright, to stand tall in your own light, to stand in the Light. That’s what the message was. “Hey mon, stand up, let your light shine bright.”
