Heat around creates sweetness447. The Founder came in close touch with the human worldly mind , in its most intricate natural varying forms and faces , after 1945 on his retirement. There is good deal of subtle interest to learn and enjoy in the child-like stage of a vexed soul in a grown up body. There is nothing new or unusual or interesting in description of a surpriseful narration of a child-like mind , when it gets shocked on the contact with the wickedness of the world.For the worldly matured veteran, grown old with every practice and experience of wickedness and one actually living in it and with it, such a narration is a tirade. But , for the blessed, it is the most invaluable possession of informative knowledge , leading finally to eye openingness and eye closingness , the latter resulting in the highest divine bliss. Such narrations are to be utilised by inverting them.Through the reading of wickedness. one has to extract righteousness and childlikeness. It is heat around and ahead that creates sweetness in the fruits of trees in a warm countries.
448. Even today, the Founder's eyes get wet on mere remembrance of the childlikeness of Blessed R.K. Paramahamsa. Founder states ," Wickedness of the world is what you get as ninety-nine per cent of the constituency of the world's atmosphere, today. take your sample any where from , a handful".
449. The world has known the righteousness and appreciated it. Some blessed few have tried to acquire it, some have played greater mischief under the delusion artificially created about their having possessed it. But there is something still higher than righteousness . Not even the divinity , not even the devotion. Something still beyond and that is childlikeness.
450.Founder states ," Words fail me. I am referring to that Divine childlike ness .Many times much more sublime than righteousness, divinity or devotion. All these latter are drosses from which divine bliss has to be obtained on burning. You churn out some superb thing as bliss or ecstasy out of something else, in the case of these things , but the Divine childlikeness is like the spontaneously lying scattered grains of the Divine Bliss itself, which has not known the touch of human effort- the mind and the heart , which is most above that of the most victorious CONQUEROR of them. The majesticity, in whose realm , rebelliousness , discontentedness struggle and the unrighteousness itself are impossibilities. The proofness against any impurity in midst of all impurities , like a castle, of which not a square inch gets wet in the midst of a billowful ocean. Your floorings get damped.You are so very efficient and prompt in resetting with better mosaic tiles. Your walls get effervescence , you scratch off and make your walls still more beautifully painted. Your roof leaks and you make it more secure by using Mangalore material. But who can realise the greatness and superiority of a hamlet-house which remains untouched and unaffected, the very same in the midst of cold and heat, damp and marsh , rain storm and wind whirl ??? There is no access, not even the smallest approach is possible for the deteriorating elements.That is Divine childlikeness. Imagine a circular wall around you , such one that the most deadliest arrows passing through it transforms itself into a scentful flowers-garland of the original arrow length. Let life taking bullets come, as soon as they pass that circular ring they break down into small globules of playing marbles!!! Religious teachers have taught us virtue , morality, righteousness, purity, divinity, devotion, but there is yet , one thing still higher. I am referring to that yet still something higher - The Divine Childlikeness. The mind and the heart of the lamb that skips and plays , which has absolutely no idea, it is reachly and profusely fed for a purpose and carried to its destination , till the cruel hand is raised.Here the selfish mind asks" Will it be guaranteed that the knife will fly away and fall down from the hand?" Does the lamb know or ask any such thing? No. That is Divine Childlikeness.
"The conqueror's position is only a secondary position. The conqueror is a ti pot which was once dipped in dirty water but has been now brilliantly cleansed.He is not an untarnishable unused golden pot .Divine Childlikeness !!! "
451."My tears flow as I imagine Swami Vivekananda scolding the old Paramahamsa for bearing so much love to him , the Paramahamsa went to Brahmo Samaj Congregation and was practically insulted.The old Guru , with supernatural powers to burn the whole universe if he liked, standing with folded hands as a guilty criminal before a young lad. Not a word of defense , not a word of," Who are you teach me wisdom, you little boy of yesterday?" That is Divine Childlikeness.
Totapuri drew most brilliant pictures of Vedanta and Nirvikalpa Samadhi and ended with saying"I will teach you that highest thing to be achieved, the Samadhi." He asked, "Would you like ti learn?" Says my beloved Mother in human form," I don't know.It all depends on my Mother" " I will ask Mother, If She permits, I will."
The Founder says often with tears , Paramahamsa would not have even breathed his inhalations without asking "Mother, may I breath?" That is CHILDLIKENESS.
A God-favoured asking anyone that comes near , be he of no worth, whether he will be cured of his footsore !! The Mother's child that seeks consolation even from sinners ,(where does the child know what is sinfulness and sinlessness ??) and gets joyfully quietened on hearing "Yes, it will be cured , don't worry." That is the Divine childlikeness which the conqueror is never fortunate to enjoy.
The doctor with the knowledge of the disease has only one person to quieten him , one who has still higher knowledge than his own .The child !!! He has the whole universe to console him. , because the very idea of one man's superiority and another's inferiority has no possible existence or place and no birth there. That is Divine childlikeness.
Childhood : extremely difficult to retain
452.How much would I like to be absorbed in the sublimity of that childlikeness;and wish others to be absorbed too? (There the difference of childhood and boyhood comes).I have to descend to the mortal plane and to be a boy. I have to add to the satisfaction of the questioner," the butcher's hand shall tremble and the knife shall fly off and fall to the ground." Do you think ,Mother is not all the while watching ?? and protecting ??" It is extremely difficult to retain one's childhood.
Founder says," I have experienced childhood. I have described it in my pages. Where such a child falls unconscious even on the busiest traffic road, running motors automatically stop .they can not touch even the fringe of the protection circle drawn by Mother herself around Her child."
453. Founder says,"I wish to bombard Satanic intellectual acrobat-ism. If the world can't appreciate that Divine childlikeness, let it die and burn, but let it not pollute that nectar by adding thereto the humbug of Leela , an artificial dissimulation , as a preservative of the Ideal's greatness.Don't pollute your intellectually manufactured venom of a false pretension, a disguised duplicity, a concocted cunningness. Don't pollute , don't deteriorate Divine childlikeness.
If people have no brains to relish true greatness of childlikeness , there need not be worrying about it , but there should be no desire to dilute. Banish that mischief - making monster from your brains.
There is nothing and there was nothing like a "part playing " in that Divine childlikeness. Do not call it part played because, you are incapable of conceiving that state. And then alone you can relish the ambrosia. The world, in its ant's way of thinking , consider it an impossibility that world changing powers can co-exist simultaneously with child's helplessness and help-demanding.Therefore it brings in a foreign , dirty, connecting brass link piece in between the two best brilliant diamonds. There is no leela between the world and Mother's child. If there is any, it is between Mother and Mother's child. The childlikeness itself the most natural and spontaneous Leela. It is pure and simple Divine childlikeness which is born with some blessed one , out of millions of blesseds.
Where is the need of padding? Why roaming over whole intellectual universe to set matters explainable and gulpable ??
Why not admit the fact of facts , viz., that we are entirely ignorant about, or unbelievers of , the most elementary things before us, with us and within us ??

[ Mai-ism was represented at All Faiths' Conference at Nasik (India) in 1933 and the Indian Philosophical Congress at Poona (India) in 1934. Maiji was invited to Japan for the World Religious Congress in 1955. Maiji was the Sub-Councillor-in-Chief of the International Religion Federation which was started in Japan in 1955
Maiji had been elected as VICE PRESIDENT and spiritual MINISTER for PEACEFUL HUMAN RELATIONSHIP & Universal Religious Alliance ( U.R.A.) in Havana, Cuba for SIX YEARS FROM 1959 TO 1965.
The most appreciated representation of Mai-ism was at the Universal Religious Alliance World Congress held at Havana in Cuba from 23 October 1959 to 22 January 1960. Mai-ism was explained, discussed and commented upon in the World Congress by Revered Sister Duchesse Blanche Ledran, The Grand Chancellor of the Universal Religious Alliance. Mai-ism received the greatest approbation in this World Congress of the Universal Religious Alliance , which has a standing of over five decades. In fact it is one of the first most important universal religious institutes.
As stated in the Preliminary Report pertaining to the Congress held on 23 October 1959, the complete attendance at the Congress was around 3800 persons 2184 of which intergrated about 318 different official delegations, which came from 96 different countries. The representation was of 449 different sections and sub-sections of religious and various organisations. Further more , 43 countries had sent their official observers. Appreciation and truest understanding about Mai-ism by the said World Congress would be evident from these words; " We have received valuable literature from all quarters of the world, which amply reveals that the regeneration of man as at the hand, as well as that a new age ( Aquarian ) is being ushered in taking shape of a brand new Spiritual Civilisation. We recommend such sources of research. We recommend Mai-ism and the Mai-Institute of Santa Cruz West, Bombay - 54 India." ]
