Lead a moral life

Now the fourth thing, the fourth Statute of the Lord is to lead a moral life. These Statutes were given by all the Gurus, take them from Socrates onward, Moses, Abraham, Dattatreya, Janaka, up to, say, Nanak, Mohammad Sahib, and take up to the point where it was only about a hundred years back you can say, at the most, was Sai Nath.

All of them have said that you have to lead a moral life. None of them have said that you do not get married, that you do not talk to your wife, that you have no relationship with your wife; all this is nonsensical.

Lead a moral life. When you are young, not married, keep your eyes on the ground; Mother Earth gives you that innocence by which you develop that principle within you, is very important principle. Its such a pure principle, it really helps the society to develop its dignity.

Now think, in a society where you do not know who is your sister, who is your brother, who is your mother, what complications it can create; what confusion, what unhappiness. It is one of the most essential things for human beings, to be moral. For animals it is not necessary.

Most of the confusions and problems, specially in the Western life, have come because they have thrown morality in the sea, and to accept morality as the very basis of society, its very difficult for them, its a complete reversion.

But you have to do it, you have to turn the whole wheel back. So, many things were done in the beginning of the society to establish this pure relationship.

There are laws which act, as if there are laws of, chemical laws are there, there are physical laws are there, in physics and chemistry. Indeed, there are human laws which one should understand.

The relationships between each other, the sublimity of their relationship, the purity of their relationship must be understood, and then only you can have a very, very happy married life, which is the basis.

'Thou shall not commit adultery.' But Christ has said - perhaps He knew the modern people as they would be using their brains for this - He said: 'Thou shalt not have adulterous eyes.'

What a vision, in those days to think; I mean, even I could not understand it when I was in India. After only coming here I could see that, what did it mean. Its a possession on the eyes, possession.

It's a joyless, useless behavior, its tiring. Attention is frittered away completely; there's no dignity. Eyes should be steady. When you look at somebody steadily you should know that you have got Sahaja Yoga in you; with love, with respect, with dignity. Not staring at people and just playing into the hands of these possessions. The whole society is possessed.

All the satanic forces have been let loose, I think, and the way people are possessed, they cannot see through these things. And they are supposed to be Christians! Attention is to be looked after.

Thats the most important thing, because attention is the one which is going to be enlightened.So we have to know what morality is. Let people laugh at us, let them say that: 'These are goodie-goodies', or this sort of thing. We are!

We are proud of it. We are not ashamed of being righteous people. This is a very important part of righteousness. Those who do not follow this will lose their vibrations very fast.
