Brisbane, Australia March 20, 1993.
Many people ask me, "Do You know that in the year 2000, people have predicted that we will have the apocalypse (end of the world)? "So what will You do about it? What do You think about it? I say, "I do nothing." And I don't think anything about it because when we die, our world ends anyhow, sooner or later. It's the eternal Kingdom that we have to find, and not try to protect this ephemeral world, even though we could do it.
When I was in Hong Kong, about ten or some years ago, I meditated in a temple. I happened to pass by and just stayed in that temple through knowing a friend. I just sat there and I was thinking about the revelation in the Bible that one day the world would be "kaput."
I was very sad and I complained to God. I said, "You don't have the right to do it. You have no right to make people suffer. If You want to destroy the world, it's fine, but do it in one second." In the Bible it describes a lot of suffering, and prolonged death which is terrible! I said, "You are God. You can't do that! Why do You do that? You have to talk to the people and let them know something else greater than that. Let them change their ways. Take it easy! Give them time! Give them more chances to behave themselves, to improve themselves. If You think the people here are not behaving properly, then You have to teach them. You have to find some way to teach them and make the world better." That's what I was arguing in some moments of emotional disturbance.
So, God said to me, "Okay, then you do it." Hes put the trouble on my shoulders. I thought it was a joke because, at that time, I didn't have any disciples, and neither had it crossed my mind that I would become a Master, or anything like that, one day. That was it; the vision vanished, and everything went back to normal. That was a long time ago.
So today, I would like to tell you, if truly you worry about the end of the world, then "You do it." You improve the people, improve yourselves, improve our Earth, and make everyone realize that God is the most important thing for us. God is that Supreme Wisdom within us. We have to look for it, use it, to make us happy and to bless anyone that comes around us - visibly or invisibly, verbally or silently.
It is not the purpose of any Master to come to Earth to tell people to worship him, even though people might do it in the early days of their practice. They identify the Master as their benefactor. But I always tell my fellow practitioners that if any miracles happen to you, any wish is fulfilled, anything you do better, any intelligence that you derive from your meditation, it is your super-power at work. It is your own greatness that has awakened and it has nothing to do with the Master. Well, it might have something to do, because the Master is just a guide. Sometimes when you don't know which direction to go, you stumble, or you have a little obstacle, then the Master will just give you a lift, but that's all.
Everything comes from you. You are the greatest Master; therefore, Jesus had promised us, Whatever I do, you can do better. [John 14:12] Did He not? Yes. Why do we forget this? Why do we always humble ourselves, and pray for something that we don't know? Why don't we know first, and then pray? I have discovered this age-old, ancient way to have direct communion with the Kingdom of God. It's not my invention. This method or so-called communion, "direct hotline," is always available in this world just from different places.
Therefore, initiation is to remind you of your greatest inheritance, and then you make use of your treasure every day instead of relying on any Master at all, whether dead or alive. That is the purpose of our practicing Method, and there's no other purpose besides that.
We have so much suffering in this world, we have a lot of unsuccessful adventures, and we blame maybe God sometimes for not blessing us. But actually, we should blame ourselves for not making use of the power that God has given us since time immemorial. Because of not using this power, we are still here; because of not using this power, we are suffering, or we see the suffering around us; because of not using this power, we have wars with one another. Only when we use this power, will we truly have everlasting peace.
But it is also better that even some portion of the world population uses this power. It's already very, very uplifting for our Earth. Otherwise, it would become hell. Hell is the place where no light can penetrate, where the people completely forget the Kingdom of God, forget their supreme position in the universe, and undergo untold suffering from their own illusionary conscience. They punish themselves because they think they are guilty.
The people who are enlightened do not think of guilt as such. They will see everything as a drama, a play from God, and therefore, they try to play accordingly. Even if they have to undergo suffering as other people, their spiritual power is so strong that they do not feel much effect.
Therefore, Jesus, while being crucified in such agony, in such a tremendously painful situation, was still Himself. He was still very centered, and did not pray for Himself, but prayed for others - prayed to the Father to forgive them because they did not know what they were doing, and to forgive and bless the fellows next to Him that they may know God. This is the greatness of Jesus. He remained always even in any situation.
That greatness also lies within us. That's what makes the saints different from us; that's what makes us worship all the saintly personages throughout the ages. But it is better that we become one, like them, and then we can truly worship them because we truly understand their greatness. Otherwise, we only understand intellectually, literally, but we do not know. We do not realize it, and we can't make use of this greatness to benefit ourselves, benefit our relatives and friends, and benefit the world at large.
We would like to invite you to try to remember your greatness, because we were not born to die. We were not born just to undergo stress at work and the responsibility of raising children alone. We were born to know the greatness of our Father. We were born to bless the world with our knowledge of this supreme power within. We were not born to live just a few decades and then die - a waste of our human life, a waste of God's creative power, a waste of the heroic ideals inside our hearts.
We have to realize what we dream; we have to do what we wish to do. If we haven't done it, we would do it now through our supreme wisdom, not through our habitual thinking and organization. Everything we learn with the human intellect, with the human system, is only useful at the human level. If we want to be greater than that, we have to learn something super-human, which we have.
The human body is only our apparatus, only our office. It's not our real Self. Otherwise, if someone lies there dead, you can't make him eat, you can't make him speak, you can't make him think, even though his brain is still there, his heart is still there, but it doesn't pump anymore.
What makes the body function? That is the supreme power. We should make use of it before it's too late, before we have to undergo suffering again of birth, death and old age to relearn all these from ABC. It's all right if you want to come back and learn. But if you do not want to, if you want to begin right now, we sincerely invite you with all love and nothing else - no money, no fee, now, before, after, between and after death even. Truly, the Master power will help you all the way through until you reach heaven, and never leave you or forsake you until the end of the worlds. So, it's up to you to make a choice.
