*Letter to Mr. Gorbachev dated Aug 21, 1990*
*My humble plans for a future global system :*
These are certain ideas I have for individual and social transformation
after Sahaja Yoga has established awareness of ‘collective consciousness’.
(This is the state one achieves as a result of his internal transformation
through Self-Realisation. He also feels the All-pervading Power of Love
that does all living work. As a result one sees the world as one nation,
one sees one truth about human beings and their different ideologies. One
develops a truly global perspective.
I believe that you are very much a person who can have this perspective and
that you can plan for our common future.
The state of ‘collective consciousness’ that I refer to will give us the
sustaining strength and wisdom that we need in pursuit of Global
Government. Through this state of consciousness we can easily develop:
1) A political system that will easily secure effective participation in
decision-making, not according to selfish Interest, but in accordance with
the laws of Truth.
2) A balanced economic system catering for the essential requirements of
human Consumption based on the barter system. A truly global system would
provide the machinery for evaluating the right ratio of distribution
according to supply and demand, but even more importantly, on a truly
3) A social system based on righteous and noble values can be developed
without any problems or disharmony, because with collective consciousness
each individual can feel contented only if the whole collective is
4) The manufacture of machine-made goods should be balanced with hand-made
products, with full consideration given to Mother Earth and ecological
problems. If more artistic goods are produced, the consumption of matter
will be less, because people will want to preserve such things.
5) Technological systems can be worked out by truly benevolent scientists
to provide for the essential as well as the highest human needs according
to the law of benevolence, instead of enhancing so-called progress which is
fuelled by the human weaknesses of lust and greed.
6) A global system can be set up to preserve all those cultures that are
benevolent in nature and to foster mutual respect and co-operation between
all kinds of races and cultures.
7) A global educational system can be made simpler for children and
concentrate more on making them compassionate and dynamic, proficient in
their own language, as well as one or two international languages.
8) An administrative system can be developed that is run by mature, saintly
people, who are flexible and have a capacity for self-correction.
These idealistic ideas may sound fantastic and impracticable but with the
dimensions that we touch in our awareness of collective consciousness, I
have found from my personal experience that, they are in fact very easy to
execute. In Sahaja Yoga we have thousands of Yogis from at least forty five
nations and I have found out that these ideas are working very smoothly
amongst them on a very down-to-earth level. Thus the ideals have become
concrete truths in the light of glorious reality.
The door of Sahaja Yoga is open to everyone and every human being can
achieve collective consciousness. The only problem is, that the freedom of
choice of the individual has to be respected because he has ultimately to
enter the area of total freedom. Thus there may be many who may not
sincerely seek their salvation. But if later on they see the multitude of
Realised Souls enjoying the bliss or collective consciousness, they may
also desire to get in to their higher evolutionary process. This is how all
evolutionary processes have worked in nature.
The guiding and controlling force that acts is the spirit. This is the
collective being within us which manifests in our attention and makes us
collectively conscious. We can then feel our subtle centres and those of
others – on our finger tips. Once we learn how to correct them, we can
easily overcome all our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problems.
In this way we are creating a new angelic society which ultimately solves
all man-made collective problems : Immorality and poverty, violence and
corruption, destructive personal habits of human beings like alcoholism and
drug abuse, problems of ecology, of economic exploitation and aggression,
narrow nationalism, religious fundamentalism and the scourge of war. These
are the cancers of modern times, because so-called human freedom has
allowed man to blindly jump into a greater darkness of ignorance.
My humble suggestions for immediate measures :.
Privatisation of the production of consumer goods in bigger factories by
making the workers shareholders. In smaller factories give full freedom to
the workers to open new factories.
For very big industries that are not producing consumer goods, foreign
collaboration should be secured with regard to technology, management and
There should be an announcement of global policy, with the government
concentrating on improving the infrastructure: transport, communications,
energy, water, special courts for industrial arbitration and conciliation.
