Q-What happens when a Self - Realised person leaves his body?
If there is no need for them to reincarnate, where do they go?

Papaji-There is no such thing as a Self-realised person.
When there is no "person" the Self is realised. When there is no "person"
the question of coming and going cannot arise. The body is an appearance in the Self.
 When the body disappears the Self remains as it always was and IS. "

Prior to here and there
Prior to now and then
Prior to me and not-me
Prior to this and that
is
My abode.

You have to live wisely, if you want to enjoy this life, this is a beautiful world that is here for you to enjoy. There are so many beautiful things: there are mountains, there are rivers, there are birds, there are animals. What more do you want? There are clouds, sun, moon and stars. Why don't you open your eyes and enjoy this manifestation, which your own creation? Everybody is related to you.
So how can anger arise? Sometimes it happens while eating, especially if the food is very tasty, that the teeth hurt the tongue. You do not go to the dentist to pull your teeth out because they hurt your tongue; there is nothing wrong with them. The tongue knows, "We are friends, I am enjoying taste and they are munching. If they hurt me I shall not pull them out." Like this, coordinate life with everyone, then you will really know how to live in love.

Once many years ago a planter invited me to visit his coffee plantation. He took me there on a Sunday; it was my day off from work. He said, "We'll go on Saturday night in the jeep. My cook does not sleep in the bungalow which is at the top of the hill. The coffee is grown on the slopes and the area for drying it is at the bottom. When I go there I stay in the bungalow, which is well equipped, and the cook stays down the hill with his family, in the area for drying the coffee. So as soon as I wake up I will go down the hill to get him."

In the morning he drove off before I was up. I awoke to a very beautiful sight. The plantation was all around me, covered in orange trees. The trees were there just for their shade, to protect the coffee plants from the direct sun. He was not interested in selling the oranges so all the fruits that dropped in the fields were ploughed back in as manure. I came out of the bungalow and saw bushes and bushes full of oranges, very big loose jacket mandarin fruits. I felt so happy to see them, so many bushes laden down with oranges touching the ground, so many orange fruits. I saw all these oranges in the morning sun, and I felt such joy.

As this feeling arose, standing in front of a beautiful bush I addressed it and spoke to the bush out loud: "Good morning, Mother, how do you do? You are very lucky, you have so many children." It did not occur to me to hurt her, not even to pluck one of her fruits for myself. It was enough just to see the beauty of the oranges and this woman so proud of her children. I liked her, I loved her, and I kissed that tree itself. I was so very happy! The thought of picking the oranges did not even come into my mind. In that same moment she also spoke to me: "I am very happy with you so I offer you these fruits," and instantly twelve big oranges fell from the tree.
I am not making this up. This really happened as I am describing it. I have seen many things happen like this. We are all one - there is no separation between us, only we do not realize it. The same is true with rocks, with trees, with birds, with rivers: you can speak with all of them, and you will see how you can get love from everything. So I spoke with this tree, and she responded. She said, "I am also happy. I want to give you my oranges, please take them." I took one and again I kissed her. I could understand how she was feeling; I could understand her language.
What was the trick? It was only love. See everything with eyes full of love.

Papaji

Everything originates from Light,
everything in its essence is Light.

Alas, time has passed and we are alone
In a sea without a shore in sight.
The ship, the night, the chill and we sail
In the sea of God, by God?s wisdom and grace.

Instruction can be on an individual basis only.
The same medicine cannot be prescribed for all.

In Wisdom's firmament the moon of Love is rising full,
And Love's Hood-tide, in surging waves, is flowing everywhere.
O Lord, how full of bliss Thou art! Victory unto Thee!

On every side shine devotees, like stars around the moon;
Their Friend, the Lord All-merciful, joyously plays with them.
Behold! the gates of paradise today are open wide. . . .

Behold my Mother playing with Shiva,
lost in an ecstasy of joy!
Drunk with a draught of celestial wine, She reels,
and yet She does not fall. . .

Two Kinds Of Intelligence

There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.

With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.

There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate. It's fluid,
and it doesn't move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Everything rises out of the earth, sets back into the earth,
and is eventually covered up by earth.
To see that everything becomes earth is to see with the eye of intelligence.
When you go deeper, you see that earth is engulfed in wind,
and wind becomes diffused in the sky (Space). The space is the Life-Energy.
The name and form are all only imagined.
The essence is this Life-Energy, or Chaitanya, only.

Shri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

We have come into this exquisite world
to experience ever and ever more deeply
our divine courage,freedom and light!

If you knew yourself for even one moment,
if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face,
maybe you wouldn't slumber so deeply in that house of clay.
Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice!
For you are the secret Treasure-bearer, and always have been.
Didn't you know?

Rumi

Jewell, thank you for this work of sharing these precious words and pictures with all of us! I wanted to add a few words that have been meaningful to me lately. With Love!

from Say Yes to Love, the God of All Love speaking through Yael and Doug Powell says:

"Yet it is even more than this! Every single part of Creation is a glorious spark of My Love bursting forth. So every form of life will open itself before you as you gaze on it with reverence. You will look within to the truth of Love, and like a glorious flower opening, each and every created life will connect you back to Me. In so doing, each will reveal to you the magnificence of the spark of perfect Love it is?and its connection to soul family, be they butterflies or barracudas."

and one more; we are so Loved!

"Oh, beloved ones, all of you, I have made you of the glittering, luminous, opulent and glorious substance of My Love. Now I tell you the simplicity of truth. Love always knows itself."

Blessing all!
Love.

I look at myself and see such painful longing
I look at love and see how pleased she is watching me.
Once you are in that house of Beauty
abundant grace awaits you.

I overheard the stars whispering
that if ever one of them
caught a glimpse of that Beauty,
to tell the others at once.
But the lovers guard their secrets jealosly
for they know that when that Moon rises
everything will set.

Rumi
