MS89 - Avoid Judgement & Respect Relationships

There are always stories behind stories. Everyone has a karmic history which shaped their outlook and expression. It's not always easy to discern a victory from a failure. A deliberate, purposeful action born from awareness, may be perceived as failure, but lead ultimately to success. It is better to preserve and respect a worthwhile relationship than to express an expectation or egoistic judgement. It is essential to see beyond the immediate and the obvious and to remain humble and accepting.

MS88 - Moral Bankruptcy

Moral bankruptcy, or perhaps more accurately, moral degeneracy is mainly due to a selfish, negative detachment from nature resulting in violent, non-consensual use of animals and resources, corruption, and objectification of people. Man-made barriers such as bigotry and speciesism, feelings of a shrunken, limited existence, and a compromised conscience are its signs. Restriction is not morality. Acceptance, kindness, unconditional love and non-violence are what constitute real morality.

MS87 - Believe in your Mission & Have no Doubts

When we have clarity about our purpose, and about how an endeavor or project can benefit the world, then we must continue to pursue it with full application and intensity. We should believe in our mission. We must defend our inner space from negative input and not allow even the smallest amount of doubt, or fear of failure to enter into us. We must take action today, based on the conviction that we will do something great and that we have the capacity, resources, and support to make it happen.

MS86 - Follow your Heart, Follow your Conscience

It takes determination to move from doing repetitive, unfulfilling work, to doing something which yields deeper, more lasting satisfaction. Many people will neither understand nor approve of such a decision and one of the biggest consequences of doing it is that a lot of professional and situational relationships will disappear. We should respect and honor our past, but remember that as long as our conscience remains intact, nothing is lost in plunging into the unknown with good intentions.

MS85 - Happiness is Found in Meaningful Relationships

Pleasure and happiness are different things. Happiness is perpetual and has to happen now, not later. Rather than money or material possessions, relationships are what bring happiness. Virtual relationships are artificial and fall short. Meaningful, fruitful relationships require the investment of time and energy, and the attitude of acceptance of everyone is essential, regardless of failures or successes. Here, quality supersedes quantity, and true wealth lies in well nurtured relationships.

MS84 - Degeneracy or Rejuvenation - It is our Attitude

The most essential element for avoiding degeneracy and deterioration is being alert and present to every aspect of our lives at every moment. This kind of alertness takes a lot of work and effort. Criticism, jealousy, anger, judgement and dwelling on the past are degenerative. Having a clear, positive purpose to work towards and focus on, along with acceptance, appreciation, and compassion are rejuvenating. We can decide what to emphasize; to be either reactive or proactive. Our attitude makes all the difference.

MS83 - Developing a Positive Attitude

One of the best things we can do in this time of restriction and loss, due to the COVID epidemic, as a remedy to our anxiety, is look back at all the situations that we've experienced until now, and remember that they were all temporary; we've passed through them, they are over. We can emphasize positivity, as opposed to negativity and realize that whatever our current situation and resources may be, we always have the capacity to do positive work; plant a fruit tree, or say a kind word.

MS82 - The 3 Aspects of Existence

Everyone has 3 dimensions. The physical, the personality which we express and the inner, which is constant and isn't always visible to the world. Every aspect of existence has 3 dimensions. Past, present, and future. Creation, maintenance, and dissolution etc. Each of the 3 is available for exploration, but the best one to concentrate on is the current dimension, the present. That is how we nurture purpose, focus, and clarity, which create a great life and a great future.

MS81 - The Real and The Unreal (How to know your connection with Mohanji)

We live in an age of confusion, when the unreal appears real and visa versa. It is difficult to discern one from the other. Many believe that they are connecting to Mohanji's consciousness and have spoken in his name, when they are projecting their own minds or manipulations. This causes upheaval and further confusion. In such cases, the best thing to do is to double check via official channels. The benchmark for authentic connectivity will always be tangible, life-changing transformation.

Seeking input from trusted advisors and building solid relationships help a lot. Determination, perseverance and flexibility are the indispensable prerequisites.

MS79 - Be Aware, Be Positive, Be Proactive

Our reality is determined by what we focus on. Collective reality, the situation we find ourselves in today, restriction and fear related to COVID, are at the forefront of our collective mind. Being aware of our thoughts, making a determined effort to discard external, negative input, cultivating a genuinely positive attitude, knowing that we have all that we need to make a positive difference, acting on that basis, without regard for the size of our contribution, is the best thing we can do.

MS78 - To stand by the helpless is to be human

When we stand by those who are helpless, we become human. This is the thought which Mohanji shares with real-life experience. When he worked in the shipping industry, a new ferry service wanted to sail from his port, but passengers' security standards were very bad, people would have died. Despite all pressures, accusations and attempts by the owners to make the ship sail, he stood his ground and refused. We must stand by the helpless and do what is right.

MS77 - We must speak because they cannot

Many beings that we share this world with have a mouth but they do not have a voice. They are subjected to torture and murder for the sake of human progress and taste. Similarly, many acts take place where people are silenced. We can have a more human world where all beings are treated with respect. For this, we must speak for those who cannot. We must speak the truth, in the right places and in the right manner respectfully.

MS74 - Simplicity = Better life

Our life has no rehearsals, and in this podcast, Mohanji asks the question “How can we live a simple but effective life”. Many people live incredibly complex lives, but they have less and less contentment or satisfaction. The great masters of India lived very simple lives, and whilst they all had their weaknesses, they made the most of their strengths, leading to greatness. Fewer complexities, a better life. Simplicity is one of the most potent traits for an effective life.

MS65 - Is the world an illusion?

In this podcast Mohanji speaks about the world of illusions. We see the world only as we are, not as it is. When we are happy, our world blooms and when we are sad, our world becomes gloomy.

Once we merge with that brightness, there is no illusion anymore. In that mode our operating platform will be unconditional love, happiness and peace within.

Developing this awareness is essential to keep progressing.
