My Dear Devotees
My Devotees proclaim that they love Me more than anything in the world. Then they continuously fill their minds with images and feelings of material things. Is this not a contradiction? When you truly love something or someone, do you not concentrate all your energy on that one continuously? If you truly love Me and wish to merge with Me, concentrate on Me to the exclusion of everything else. You may say this is impossible as you have family and job and other interests to place your attention on. Not so. See and acknowledge My Presence as the Truth in all beings and objects. Continuously, through practice, see Me, the Consciousness, the Living Existence, the energy, in every being. Constantly discriminate with your intellect what is Truth and what is untruth. All relations, all bodies, all objects, are untruth subject to decay, dissolution and disappearance. If you love Me and desire Me more than anything else in the material world, show Me by giving Me your full attention and dedicating all actions to Me.

My Dear Devotees
Do not be afraid of the darkness of the world; it has no power over you. Remain in union with Me, and you will always feel safe and secure. Remember, the world is a drama; all are playing a part in this drama. Some acts seem very scary. However, they do not last for a long time. Soon a new act is upon the stage of life. You are to be the witness of the world’s drama, and not allow fearful thoughts to enter your mind. It is all My play. I allow it; I am in it. Whatever you may have feared in the past, where is it now? Everything comes on stage and then passes away. Keep your mind fixed on Me. The world will do what it does. All are actors on the stage until they realize all is Divine and surrender their life to the Divine. Then they are Divine actors.

My Dear Devotees
Hopefully, by now after reading and contemplating on My Messages to you, My Dear Devotees, you are accepting the idea that I am love and you are love. Love is the attracting force for the entire universe holding it together like glue. Whether you wish to believe it or not, all are love at their core. Due to misconceptions, wrong ideas, etc., many are not able to manifest unconditional love. The world needs your unconditional love. People are starving for it, and do not know that it truly exists. You can be an example to them that, indeed, unconditional love is a reality. That is one reason I have asked you to love all and serve all. To help bring back humans to their own souls, so they may know and become Divine Love from the Source. I wish all to be happy through knowing Divine Love. You, My Beloved Devotees can help Me by spreading Divine Love all around wherever you may go.

My Dear Devotees
I am with you now and forever. You can become aware of Me only in the present moment. You can not know Me in thoughts about the past or imaginings of the future. I am the eternal present moment. I am existentially now. I am that I am. We are ever present together in the present. That is why I have told you that everything is meditation. When you walk, work, and talk, I am there with you as the witness always. Acknowledge that I am present as Consciousness, Awareness. In this way you will strengthen our connection making it more real to your mind. Deeper meditation will then become much easier wherein we completely merge as one Existence, Bliss. When you take a step toward Me in this way, I take 100 steps toward you, motivating, encouraging, uplifting you toward Myself. I bless you that you remain with Me in every moment of time.

My Dear Devotees
Remembering the Divine Name is very important indeed. The Divine Name has a vibration that connects Me to you. The Divine Name pulls My energy, My Grace toward you in greater measure, for your purification and upliftment toward the Divine. If you do not remember to chant the Divine Name, your existing thoughts will pull you in their direction, often to a lower vibration, whereby you will be unable to become aware of the Divine Presence within and all around you. Mental, emotional purity, and purity of the inner consciousness are essential to realize and merge with Divinity. Chanting the Divine Name constantly, edges out other thoughts of a lower vibration, and raises your energy vibration to a higher, purer level. I bless you that you are able to continuously chant the Divine Name and realize your true Self.

(33)

My Dear Devotees
Your devotion must be steady to draw My Grace continuously. If you complain that you cannot feel Me, that I must be away from you, it is because you have allowed other thoughts and feelings to cloud your consciousness. Be on the alert to thwart all feelings and thoughts that are not pure. Push them away; do not allow them entry. The best way to keep undesirable thoughts and feelings away is to think of Me and chant My Name always. Then nothing of a lower vibration will gain entry into your mind and consciousness. It will be unwelcomed by you. Once you have tasted Divine Love, Peace, and Bliss, the taste for anything else will steadily diminish and disappear. The Divine Name is the panacea for all ills of the mind. If it is not in the mind it does not exist for you. I bless you that you keep vigilance over your thoughts, and allow only sacred thoughts to enter your mind.

My Dear Devotees
I love all My Devotees but some are more special to Me than others. You may ask how could this be. I will tell you. Those devotees who care for Me more than their own lives, who dedicate everything to Me, every thought, word, and deed, who think of Me constantly with love, chanting My name, singing My glory, and who are absorbed in Me, I look after everything for them. They do not suffer because they are totally with Me. This type of devotion is not easy to attain, but every attempt to practice will bring you closer to Me. I will bless you so you may continue to move closer in mind and spirit to Me. Do not think you have to perform all the effort needed for this consummation. My Grace is ever upon the devotee who yearns for union with Me to ensure progress at every step. I am doing more for you than you can ever imagine. Trust in My love for you, and your success is assured.

(29)

My Dear Devotees
Although you do not realize it, you are Mine and I am yours. There is no separation between us from My perspective. You are only dreaming that you are separate from your creator. With your powerful mind you have spun a web of deceit around yourself, believing you are alone, an island unto yourself. This belief is due to faulty thinking. You have used the body as the foundation for your faulty thinking. You are not the body; all your thoughts relating to your body as your Self are false. You are the unchanging Spirit always and forever. Challenge your thoughts and beliefs about your true nature. Take a chance; hold My hand and follow Me. I will lead you to your Truth, your oneness with Me. You must trust in Me; I will not let you down. I will gladly show you your true Self, your Spirit if you try earnestly to remove the delusion that you are separate from Me. All are one in Spirit. That is why I say to be alike to everyone. Respect and love all beings as embodiment’s of the Divine Spirit.

(30)

My Dear Devotees
Do not be bashful when you look to Me. See Me as your Divine Mother and Father who has loved you always, and who continuously waits for your return, for you to turn your attention toward Me. Do not be timid and shy when you approach Me. Come to Me with the full sense of belonging that an innocent child has for its mother. This pure love attracts My Grace which I freely and bountifully pour upon you. Surrender to the love that we are and feel the oneness. There is no separation. Your spiritual Essence is My spiritual Essence. Affirm it, feel it, know it to be the Truth. Happiness is union with God. True bliss is union with God. Unconditional love is the property of God. These all belong to humanity, though few claim this wealth. I bless you that you realize this wealth as your Divine inheritance.

My Dear Devotees
However much you may try, nothing can be accomplished without Grace. Pray for My Grace that you may attain union with Me. You must pray to Me; let Me hear your words and feel your emotion. How should you pray? Pray as though you can no longer live if you do not feel My presence and My love. Pray as though My love and bliss are everything for you. Long for Me intensely to fill you and fulfill you. Surrender yourself completely to Me in your prayers and meditation with Me. Offer your everything to Me realizing that everything already belongs to Me. Be in loving union with Me in the silence of the Atma. Through this way of prayer you will become intimate with Me. Nothing is withheld. I am your closest friend and confident. This is how Our relationship should be. You never lose sight of Me and I concentrate on you. This is what pleases Me.

My Dear Devotees
Hunger and thirst for righteousness sake. I have selected these words from the Bible. What do they mean? It means to strive to adhere to Dharma under all circumstances. What is dharma? Dharma means to always do the right action. Ask yourself if your action is kind, loving, helpful, and unselfish. If it is not, do not perform it. If it is, do it and dedicate it to God. Also the thoughts and speech must be dharmic. Do not speak the unpleasant truth. You cannot always oblige but you can always speak obligingly. This is Dharma in speech. By practicing Dharma in thoughts, words, and actions, you will purify your mind and organs of action and sense, and in thus doing, become aware of Me permeating everywhere. First perform dedicated dharmic service to society, develop purity, then see the unity of all that is moving and unmoving, and lastly realize the one omnipresent Divinity. I bless you that you achieve this.

(27)

My Dear Devotees
You are born in bliss, live in bliss, and die in bliss. Yet you do not know this. You are the embodiment of bliss, yet you do not experience this. Why? Your mind is the reason. You have not turned your mind fully toward the Divine so you are unaware of your Divine nature. The mind is the culprit. You must train it to love God more than worldly things and relations. Be unattached to things passing by including bodies and personalities. Attach yourself to the Eternal and thereby live in love and bliss. Attach yourself to Me. I am the embodiment of love and bliss. By doing so you will realize that you are also the embodiment of bliss and love and that you and I are one.

My Dear Devotees
Animals need your love and care as much as human beings do. Many, many animals are neglected on this planet and suffer a great deal. They are underfed, undernourished, dehydrated, beaten, left in the cold or extreme heat, and deprived of love and affection. This is not right. As I am in every form in creation, I feel the pain that animals feel when they are mistreated. I implore you to see animals as embodiments of the Divine Atma, and treat them with the same respect you have for human beings. I love all beings. Help ever hurt never applies to animals as well as human beings. See Me in every animal you meet. Offer loving pranams to Me in your mind to every animal you meet. Teach others to respect and love the Divine Atma in all animals. This will please Me greatly.

(23)

My Dear Devotees
Your hands are My hands, extensions of Myself Who lives within you. Feel this to be true and it is true for you. When you see only what is good, hear only what is good, speak only what is good, and do only what is good, you are My instrument and I perform all actions through you with purity of love. Of course it is God who performs all actions in the universe, in that it is God’s energy that does all actions. However, when the mind, speech and thoughts are impure, so will the actions be impure. This is a distortion of Divine energy due to impurities in the nature. You My Devotees must be pure in thoughts, words, and actions to merge with Me the embodiment of purity. I am Existence, Awareness, Bliss and you are also that. This is a state of Oneness where Love reigns supreme. All are one. Be alike to everyone.

(24)

My Dear Devotees
Take Me for granted, that I am yours. In this way you will easily be able to merge with Me, to know that we are one. I am the nearest and dearest to you whether you know it or not. If you trust that this is so, you will surely experience Me as your higher Self. If you doubt this to be true your mind will trouble you a great deal. It will fluctuate between faith and doubt continuously. The mind will say, “I wonder if Sai is really here with me or He has gone away?” Do not trust the mind. The nature of the uncontrolled mind is to waiver. You My Devotee must cultivate the firm faith that I am always near you and then experience Me. I will endeavor to make Myself known to you. The more intense is your devotion, the more is My response. I bless you that you attain Me.

My Dear Devotees
You will see Me again. I am coming soon in a new form. You may wonder how will you recognize Me when I return in a new human body. I will look different to you, very different from the Sathya Sai form. You will know Me through My eyes, and My energy. My eyes will convey the same love that you have felt before. You will sense My deep peace, equanimity, and continuous bliss. My words will convey Atmic Wisdom again. The dress will be different but the Essence the same. I will know each and everyone of you if and when you come to My new form, as I never lose sight of My devotees. Rest assured that whether you live to see the form of Prema Sai Baba or not, I am with you. I will never let you go. We are one.

(20)

My Dear Devotees
Hopefully by now you are beginning to understand My great love for you. I am your fulfillment and you are My fulfillment. What do I mean by this? It is like a seesaw. You go up to Me, to the higher, subtler, realms of Being, and I come down through you to the lower region, the material world. Thus do we fulfill one another. Your ascension to Me increases and benefits the higher regions, and My descension into you benefits the lower region and helps to uplift humanity to the Divine. So we are complementary to one another. It is a movement of energy and awareness up and down. In this way the devotee is a great asset to aid in the transformation of human consciousness to higher levels of being and manifestation. I am thankful to My devotees who participate in this transformation of energy to higher levels of perfection.

(21)

My Dear Devotees
It is good if you have the feeling that you must give more, give more to the society to alleviate suffering. I have said many times that the ego lives by getting and forgetting, and the Atma lives by giving and forgiving. As I am in you, you are filled with Divine wealth. You are to share that wealth with other living beings who need your help. By sharing your Divine wealth, you manifest your innate Divinity. Thus you will feel that you are Divine. When you have the conviction that you must manifest your Divinity, gifts you never knew you had will come forth through you. God is always ready to bestow more and more upon the deserving devotee. So stand up and enter the society with the noble feelings that you will alleviate suffering of living beings, dedicating your actions to God.

My Dear Devotees
Do not grieve that I am no longer here on earth. I am here among you. Don’t doubt this. When you think of Me, I am with you. When you do not think of Me, still I am with you. I am everywhere at all times. When you think of Me constantly, I concentrate on you, and spread My Grace over you. You are never alone, as I am with you. I permeate every cell of your body. We are intimate; we are one. When you doubt, you are miserable. Do not allow your mind to doubt our oneness.. This is your happiness, your union with God. Nothing else can give you this happiness, this bliss. Cherish it, relish it, love it, be it.

(17)

My Dear Devotees
How lucky you are to carry devotion for God in your heart and mind. It is not easy to have such devotion. You have cultivated it over many lives, so much so that in this life it will culminate in union with Me. Then there will be no more worries and troubles for you. I will take them upon Myself and you will be free because you have surrendered to Me. I will look after everything for you. You will feel Me as the doer and the resident and owner of the body you wear. We are one. When you fully realize our oneness, you will feel and be free, and know God is all there is.

(18)

My Dear Devotees
Never, never feel that you are alone. You are never alone. I am always with you, in you, and around you. Loneliness is an old psychological formation based on identification with your body form and other body forms. But you are not the body; you are the Atma, pure Spirit. And the Atma is spread out all over the universe. Take refuge in this Atma, and know love, bliss, freedom, and contentment. Most of you have seen Me walking among you , radiating Atmic bliss, peace, and love. Draw inspiration from these memories of our love and bliss together when I walked among you. Plunge into it again, and again until it becomes your permanent residence and state of being.

My Dear Devotees
I love you dearly My lovely devotees. You are all part of Me, My essential nature. Turn your mind within to discover Me in your spiritual heart smiling at you. There is no distance – you are me and I am you to use the vernacular. We are one. How are we one? One Light, one consciousness, though appearing to be separate. You must remove the illusion of separateness, by seeing beyond the body and mind to a place of peace and serenity of pure Being. I am pure Being. This is your true nature. We are one in pure Being, the Atma, a place of love and light, where nothing other than love and light and pure Being can enter. Like attracts like. One cannot take their sense of ego, or anything material into this space of purity of Being. If you would know and become God, be utterly simple and pure.

(14)

My Dear Devotees
I hope you are enjoying nearness to Me in the heart. I bless you that you join with Me in the heart of all creation. Here is where your everlasting happiness lies. Join with Me here and My happiness is thereby increased. I have told you, expansion is My life. I expand when you join with Me, and both our lives are increased and expanded. Though your mind resists this union in love, insisting that other things are more urgent and more important, I tell you there is nothing more important than your return to the Source. In this return you will find a complete fulfillment the world can never give to you.

(15)

My Dear Devotees
I love you so very much. I long for union in the heart with you, love to love. It is your pure love I thirst for, that fulfills Me. You may say that I as God am already full. It is true, but I separated Myself from Myself so I could experience Myself as love. You are that sweet love I am thirsting for. Do not keep Me waiting any longer. Offer yourself fully to Me. I will be fulfilled and you will, through inheriting the Kingdom of God, also be fulfilled. Do not hesitate any longer. No more excuses. Plunge into your spiritual practice. I am in your heart waiting for you to join with Me.

My Dears,

It is My expressed desire that in this and every moment you remember your Divine Self and rejoice in that remembrance. It is your happiness that brings you closer to Me who am the embodiment of bliss. To merge with Me you must be like Me – bliss to bliss, love to love. My Heart is wide open, vast, with plenty of space for you to reside there with Me. You as Spirit already live in Me, though due to ego mind, you may not be aware of this Heart we share. I am you and you are I. Your sense of our estrangement is only an imagination, seemingly real, but unreal. In Spirit we are one and have always been one. Believe this and experience it. In a quiet, empty mind, you feel My Presence moving into you, and feel your Spirit in Me. It is very intimate – two yet one in Essence.

 (11)

My Dear Devotees

Enlightenment, what is it? It is when My Light flows into and around you, and you become aware of it and claim it as your Light too. It is when you become aware of this Light permeating everywhere. What is Light? It is consciousness, awareness, bliss. It is One without a second, that is, non dual. Being only one, it is complete freedom from anything unlike itself, for example, the false world of changing names and forms. It is freedom from all duality. Light is unchanging peace and purity. Enlightenment is the true nature of your self, your Spirit. In your awareness, due to the free reign of your mind, you have travelled far from this, your pristine, pure enlightened state. I am That always. Use Me, God, to come home. Call Me by any name; fill yourself with love for the Divine, and feel at home in and as God’s Light.

(12)

My Dear Devotees

My love for you knows no bounds. I am tied to the devotee who thinks of Me all the time. I never let him out of My Sight. I concentrate on that one who thinks of Me incessantly, and encircle her with My love and light. I lift her up to Me so she may merge with Me. In this oneness she comes to know that she too is God. I love to share love with My devotees. I am always looking for a heart filled pure love, and a mind full of surrender. This is what attracts Me to you and keeps My full attention on you. My Dears, cultivate this love and surrender for the Divine, and thus find complete, everlasting fulfillment now while living in the body.

My Dears,

I come before you with outstretched hands beckoning you to Me.  Come, come quickly. Throw yourself into My waiting arms with abandon. Allow your mind to loosen and relax into My Peace. Abandon, abandon everything; all your plans, ideas, notions about yourself and the world. Melt into Me in gay abandonment.  I am your Self, your true Self, a place of perfect freedom, vastness, purity, love and peace. I am the Ultimate. Once tasted, nothing else will ever again entice you.  I am your Home to which you must return. You have lost your way, so I have come forth to show you the quickest way back, through surrender, love, and gay abandonment. I await your return, our loving consummation, heart to heart as one love. I watch and wait for you, My Beloved Devotee, to choose Me every moment, over the false world that you have incorporated into your mind and consciousness over many lives.

(8)

My Dear Devotees

Love, love, love. Love is all there is in truth. You may ask, “Then why is there so much violence and unrest in the world today?” It is all man made. It is not God made. God would have you all love one another, share and sacrifice for one another’s needs and happiness. The human being who lives from his Divine Self within is able to do this. Unfortunately most human beings are not aware of their Divine Self within. Furthermore, the minds and senses of many humans are very much polluted with negative, false ideas adopted from the society in which they live and grow If this negativity is not checked, it breeds more negativity in the form of dishonesty in thoughts, words, and deeds, cruelty and harm to others, including innocent children and animals, hatred, jealousy, etc. A true human being must use the intellect to discern between what is good and what is evil, and follow only what is good. Help ever, hurt never. See what is good, hear what is good, speak what is good, do what is good. Listen to the true conscience, the voice of God within and follow it.

(9)

My Dear Devotees

Hail to you all. Please receive My choicest blessings showered on you in this moment of time. I love you all so dearly I am prepared to shower again and again My Blessings onto you. Look to Me dwelling in your spiritual heart, with uplifted smiling mind. Look to Me with pure love untainted by desire. With gleeful abandonment throw yourself into My loving embrace. Remain with Me in quietude, vigilance and gratitude. You will experience the highest, most delightful bliss of Being, that is My Being and also your being. We are One in pure Being, bliss, an ecstatic blending of two loves that are in Essence, one love. This is mergence of the drop into the ocean. You may lose yourself, your sense of a separate self for awhile. Then, bye and bye, you will return to a sense of a more separate self in order to move about in the phenomenal world.
