Gist of the pravachan given by Swami Ramsukhdasji on 28.1.1991 at 5 a.m:
God IS - always - there is never any change in Him. The world is always changing. You can never catch hold of the world. You assume a relation of 'myness' with the world and get bound. You try to catch and keep with you what does not exist at all. What changes every moment has no existence. So how can you catch or keep something that has no existence. And then you assume that you get pleasure from that which is always changing - which does not exist.
This is the only mistake that has to be rectified. Accept it that it is a mistake - and the rectification is very easy. God always IS - He never changes. Attaining Him is instant. The moment you accept that you have no relation with the world - or that your relation is only with God - He is attained. You have to attain the ever-attained. It is so simple.
Instant Attainment of God
All that we see - nothing stays. They are all changing every moment. They are changing so fast that you cannot see anything for a second time also. Your body has changed from childhood to old age - it is changing every moment. It is constantly flowing like the Ganges - flowing towards destruction. There is nothing else but change. The essence of God - God - never changes. There is no change in God ever. He always remains. What we see is always changing and God is always staying.
We are a part of God and we always stay. We always remain. What always remains catches hold of what never remains. This is the cause of life and death. You can never catch what is always changing - how can you catch it? You get sorrow/sad only because you are trying to catch what will not stay. It is because of this desire that you are sad. Expectation from the world is the cause of eternal sorrow. The desire of the world can never be fulfilled and the desire of God can never remain unfulfilled.
The world is always leaving you and God has never left you, will never leave you, can never leave you. You have to attain what is already with you and have to leave what is always leaving you. God us attained - this very moment - there is question of any delay in the attainment of God. He IS. Right now - right here. He is not a thing of the future - He is right now in the present. There is delay of time for something that is created - not for God. He is not created. He is attained instantly.
We have assumed that God is not attained - this is the mistake. Accept your mistake and it is easily rectified. Accept it right now. God is beyond time - there is no delay in attaining Him. You have given existence and importance to the perishable - that is the mistake. The world has no existence and you have given existence to it. That is why attaining God seems difficult. There is practice only till such time as you have accepted the existence of the world. The world is ever separated and God is ever attained. It takes time only if you accept the existence of the world - else it is instant. Whenever it will happen - it will happen instantly.
The breaking of the relation with the world does not take time - it takes time if you accept the relation. When there is no relation - where is the question of it taking time? The bondage is just the assumed relation with the world (Gita 13:21). The one who has accepted the relation is the one who is born - is the one who has to practice to try and break the relation. The fact is that the relation is just assumed - nothing in the world is yours. Your assumption of it being yours is a mistake. You assume that you get pleasure from the world - it is a myth. There is no pleasure in the world - it is impossible.
God is ever attained - there is no delay in attaining Him. It is a thing of the present - it is not dependant on the future.
