Dear Friends, Master on how to become MORE CONSCIOUS:We are conscious beings. The more we come in contactwith All-consciousness, we become more conscious. If we come in contact withmaterial things outside, our consciousness will be marred. The result will bethat we will have to go to bodies which have less consciousness. Be verycareful. To be evolved conscious entities you must be in contact withAll-consciousness, that way your consciousness will grow. If you come incontact with the material things more than the spiritual things, the result isthat your consciousness will be lessened; you will have to go to the lowerplanes. This is very important.Those who do not constantly come in touch withAll-consciousness, they are slowly committing suicide. If the consciousness islessened, it is suicide. So they lay the greatest stress on this: if you don'tcome in contact with the God within you, it is better that you should have diedA Persian philosopher says, "Catch the hemof that man who is well conversant with the here and hereafter, who neverleaves you." You may leave Him, He will not leave you. He may give a longrope, mind that. Somebody wrote to our Master; "We are leaving You."He said, "All right, you may leave me, I cannot leave you." You see?He has got a very strong hand.
If you have read the scriptures, you will findthat the Son of God is given the powers of judgment also. Dharam Raj is the onewho judges all others, but those who are initiated, they are judged by theMaster Himself. Suppose your son has committed something wrong (Sin), He is not the sinner, you can hate sin but not the sinner and you would notsend him to the police, would you? You slap him yourself once or twice, rebukehim, admonish him, "Don't you do that!" but you would not suffer tosend him to the police. I am not telling you new things, these are mentioned inthe scriptures. These are facts - hard facts, you are fortunate! Don't deceiveyourself. Why? He is watching your every action. He watches the very trend ofyour mind.
"What is He?" Do you know what He is?Have you seen any rivers flowing? You have seen rivulets and rivers? There aretwo sides of earth, within which water is flowing. The water and the two sidesof the earth are both called a river. The water is not called river, but thewater flowing between the two sides of earth, the whole is called the river.Within the sides of the man-body where God is manifested, are the flowingWaters of God. That Life Water is overflowing, we should plunge headlong intoit. You will never die;so no need to be born again also, you will have everlasting life. They tell these thingsto bring home what is what. But you know these things only when you rise abovethe body-consciousness.

Dear Friends, The Master continues to say: What is the use of your having the man-body? Theman-body is meant for coming in contact with the Light and Sound principle onthe way back to God. Whatever you are doing now, whether you are eating,drinking, playing, going around, taking bath, this and that, it is likebeautifying a dead body. What is the use of it? He is dead in whom God's Lightis not fully effulgent. When I ask somebody, "Are you alive?" .Alive means are you on the Way,well on the Way? Are you dying daily, rising above body-consciousness day byday? This is what I mean when I ask "Are you alive?"
So it is said that the Divine Music, the Divine Call of God, is calling youback. If you don't listen to Him, what will be the effect? Your consciousnesswill be lowered. Would you like that? When a man is serving in an office, if hedoes not get a promotion and instead is demoted, would he like it? How shamefulit would be. He won’t be able to show his face in the office. Even hisjuniors would be moving up. Those who have got some background, if they delay, if they don't keep up theirpace forward, naturally the others who start now will go ahead of them. Theywould be ashamed I think. I am talking from a common sense point of view. So itis high time... for what? Do you know? In this man-body the more you come incontact with the Divine Power within you, the more conscious you will become.Then you won't go down to the lowest scale of beings; you will reach the TrueHome of your Father and you won't come down as prisoners, but could be sentdown for guiding the child humanity. What more can I tell you? This is nothingnew; I am just repeating the same words as the Masters who came from time totime.
I also feel like that so whom should we love? Those things which you willleave here? Your body, your possessions, your relations? Love them, because Godhas contracted you to them to pay off your debts. That is all, nothing more.Then find your way back to God. Whom else should we love? Master used to say,we have to cross a river, and the Master is there to carry us to the othershore. Some go first, the others go later, but they all unite there together onthe other shore. So Masters unite us in such a relation which never breaks,even after death. So whom should we love? God, who else? He in whom Godis manifest at our level. Call Him by any name you like. God also resides inyou, in everyone, but where He is manifest in full effulgence, He is to beloved above all
So what does such a One do? He does not leaveyou here or hereafter. That is the God Power, Christ Power, Master Power."I shall never leave thee nor forsake thee till the end of theworld." All the Masters say so in their own language. Whenever a Masterinitiates somebody, He resides in him and it does not end there; He will absorbhim into God. He used to initiateothers, He would say, "Look here, I am now residing in you. Take care ofthat. I am watching over your every action. Be careful." When He returned,He would say, "Well what have you done, have you brought anything? Haveyou earned anything? I have given you something to start with, how many moretalents have you earned?" These are the hard facts being given to you,whether you know it or not, they stand as true as ever So Masters say, we should only love the one whonever leaves us till the end of the world - who always looks after us. Ofcourse we have to pay off certain debts. But one thing, if an operation is tobe performed on the child, the mother takes him on her lap while the operationis performed. In that case the child knows that "I am in the lap of mymother." He feels less pain. If you are in constant sweet remembrance ofthe Master within you (He is the God-in-man), outer things won't pinch you.
one who is initiated by the Master never goes tohell. You see? Even by chance if he goes to hell, then the Master has to gothere to bring him out. For that reason, we should have love for somebody whois overflowing with the love of God and what will be the result? He will takeyou to such a state of being where you will never have to return. You will haveeverlasting life, peace and all joy, eternity and all wisdom. In the beginning, you can take Him as your elderbrother, as your father, as your teacher. When you find He can give you a boostto the other world for a while (yogis have taken hundreds of years to riseabove body-consciousness), don't you think He is something? You may not beaware who He is, but He appears to be some competent person.
It is a great fortune to have a living Master. Bookstell us so many things, scriptures tell us so many things, very sweet storiesof the beyond. But how many are there who can give us a dip into the beyond, atleast to rise above the physical body? That is the first hurdle, the very ironcage which you cannot transcend. This is the hardest work one has to do & perform the action towards Liberation.pls contribute your views towards rising above the body-consciousness.

Paramahamsa's explanation reminds me tattvavAda theory about nitya mukta, mukti yOgya and adhama jeeva-s, who never ever want to come out of samsara bandha like worm in filth. And for that matter shankara too talks about highly elevated souls like apAntaratama-s (the perfectionists or ever purists ), who work as messenger of god whenever situation demands and other mukta jeeva-s who just gets mukti and remains in muktAvasthA without any special engagements :-)
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
Once the Divine Master said that there exsists four classes of human beings: the bound, those aspiring after liberation,the liberated, and the ever-perfect.
