So the best thing for all of you is to become thoughtless. That's the blessing of Christ, that's what He worked it out for you. And I am sure, if you work it out that don't pay attention to others. Don't react, just don't react. Everything they will see, they'll react. What is the need? What is the use? What are you going to do with that reaction? This reaction creates nothings but ripples of thoughts in your mind, I've told you hundreds of times. And now you have to become absolutely thoughtless after this puja.
If that happens, I think we have achieved a lot. That's the biggest blessing that Christ has given you, which you should really enjoy. Then only this Akash Tattwa in you will work. And how it works? Through your attention, it works with Me as you know. With My attention I work out many things. How? Just My attention has become thoughtless, just thoughtless. It goes, wherever it goes it works. But if you put your attention for thought all the time for thinking, then it doesn't do the work that it has supposed to do. Attention works marvelously if you are thoughtless, otherwise it doesn't.
So it has to rise from your own self. Then from others to the higher level of humanity, where you are in communication with the sky, which we can call it as the tanmatra, or the essential, or the essence of ether. With ether you can have television, you can have telephone. It's a miracle otherwise. But with this tanmatra, sitting down here you can do the job. It works, just attention works. I know that. You also know very well. You don't have to ask Me to put the attention; you just put the attention and it will work out. It's a very important thing that you have got. I think that is the first thing - once you have, no problem. But we start manifesting from the earth element. Then from the agni element, then from the jala element, and then we come to tejas, where the face starts shining. But lastly we get this thoughtless awareness by which our attention is absolutely free to do some special work. But if you are all the time thinking, then poor this attention is so busy, you know, so very busy. You don't have to ask Me then, "Mother, please pay attention." You can pay attention, and you can work it out.
In this attention, you don't feel what you got, what you are standing, what you are wearing, what others are doing - no, nothing. You are one with yourself. And it's a life full of humor. So much humor. So much of joy. So much of happiness that you don't care for anything that normally people care for.
