On the second day of the event in Los Angeles, many had the chance to speak with Maharaji face to face. Before the first person took the mic, Maharaji spoke of our desire to appear sophisticated, even though simplicity is what we're truly after.
Here are some excerpts from his talk:
You have heard this again and again and again. You have to have the heart of a child. Do you have the heart of a child? We don’t even know what that means. We want a mind that is complex. We want people to give us credit for being sophisticated, when that’s not a good thing. Simplicity is better.
Simplicity is the order in this incredible chaos — even in this universe, there is a simplicity. Everything obeys the law of nature. That’s it. Now, do we understand all those laws? No. So does it sound sophisticated to us? Yes. But it’s all very simple.
You can know that you are blessed. Under no uncertainty, you can know. That’s what Knowledge is. That’s why this is such a beautiful message. Because it doesn’t dive into beliefs. And this is why it’s so confronting for people. 'Who... what?' It throws everything out the window.
