A Delicate Time

“To establish order, disorder has to be shaken…”Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Maharishi’s profound insight into the transformation
of the world is heartening for us at this time

“In order to establish order, disorder has to be shaken. And for shaking to remain under control, we who are at the basis, at the level of Para (the transcendent), have to be Para—that is, unreachable by the surface turmoil. In that integrated state, the fast-moving chaos and change will pass away in a steady manner.

“So, we have to be very steady. We have to be very careful not to get upset by little or big things. If we lose our basis, our dignity, the phase transition will take much longer. Don’t give importance to things that may upset us.

“This is a very precious time for the world. Everything depends on how our awareness is—just don’t let it be shaken. Our awareness is the basis of all these transformations. More than ever before, time demands we remain completely ourselves.

“It is a very tender, delicate time for us—we should not become angry, indifferent, or sad—we should just be like an ocean.

“The evolutionary power is waking up. We shake it, then leave it—then after some time shake it again. Each time a new level of purity, awakening is added.
