Is there a pill for peace? A few days ago I was wondering what I was going to say at this forum. – ‘Medicine for Peace’. I mean this would make a nice ‘Headline.’ But really, is there a pill for peace – because that would be nice, if there was a pill for peace. You have to just take it and you feel peace. This made me think. Is there a pill for ‘peace’? Is there a medicine for devotion?
And all of a sudden, I realized that there is. Yes, actually there is a pill for peace! And what is this medicine? Well, it’s called ‘consciousness’. Listen, the next time you say – I don’t have time – know that you are forecasting your own future. Be very careful, because this is exactly what will really happen. Time doesn’t matter once you have turned to dust – it just doesn’t matter. Time matters only as long as you are alive.
Dust does what it does. It just blows around. It is the ultimate state. Everything that comes from dust returns to dust. All the stones were formed from dust. They will ultimately turn to dust. Don’t forecast your own future thus.
Think! Awaken! Awaken!! You say what you say about so many things in your life because you are intoxicated. Actually intoxicated! Not with alcohol but with ignorance.
And to tell you more about it, I will quote DariaMaharaj.
दरिया सोया सकल जग , जागत नहीं है कोय।
जागे में फिर जागना , जागा कहिये सोय।।
“Everyone is asleep. No one is awake. But the one who is wakeful,
Even in the awakened state – is truly alert and awake.”
That’s the pill for ‘peace’. Be awakened!
