The following is a transcript of Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar’s speech during His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love in Mexico. This monumental event was attended by over 2000 locals who were inspired by the message of HDE Gohar Shahi. The speech was preceded by introductions in Spanish by Tatiana Iridia Vargas Arana, the President of Messiah Foundation International, and Hector Iglesias, a community leader. The Dastar-e-Fazilat (Turban of Honour) ceremony was also carried out under the auspicious supervision of Sufi Younus AlGohar. Following Sufi Younus AlGohar’s speech, there was a spiritual healing session. To end this beautiful occasion celebrating divine love and interfaith harmony, attendees and event organisers alike joined hands to participate in the dance of love.
Love is lovely, but it needs sacrifice. When you love somebody, difficult times, difficulties, problems in life try to stop you. And sometimes, you need to sacrifice. But about God’s love, before God gives you love, he wants us to remove negativity from our body. The element of hatred from our body.
If we don’t remove hatred and negativity from our body, our love for God is not perfect.
In the path of love, God’s name is like a soap. God’s name must go inside the soul to clean it. When the soul is purified, we have pure love of God. Our message is love and it is not about any religion.
Questions and Answers with the Audience
Q: When was the precise moment when you felt that you wanted to stand up, go into the world and spread your message?
I was in school, a student. And one day, with my friends, we went to a beach. So I was sitting at the beach and it was a wonderful, sunny afternoon. The Sun was right on top of my head. So I was looking at the Sun and I fainted. I felt so peaceful. Then, maybe after half an hour, I gained consciousness. I was sitting at the beach and I was looking at my hands as if I don’t know myself.
I was asking myself, ‘Who are you? And why are you here?’
In that moment, I felt that I am missing from me. I was thinking, ‘I am here, but where am I?’
Then I felt that the real me is missing. I was always quiet. Then one day, somebody introduced me to Lord Ra Riaz. And then I found that missing link: love.
So Lord Ra Riaz found me for me.
Then I realised there must be many people like me who are looking for love. So I spread love – it helps me and I feel happy. When I go around the world and tell people about love, my soul becomes happy. That is why I am here.
That was a very beautiful question.
Q: I feel a raised vibration here and I really appreciate you being here. And coincidentally, it is my birthday and I have received the best gift ever today, full of love.
Happy birthday to you! Love is the best manifestation of God. May the Lord increase you in love and peace. We are also very happy for you.
Q: Is there any difference between spirituality and the soul?
The soul needs spirituality to become strong. The soul is like our body and spirituality is like food. When the two are together, love is perfect.
Q: Welcome to Mexico! I hope you are very conscious that you are in a very, very important place in the entire country. In the place where it is believed that there were gods here, which is very important for all Mexicans. For the past maybe 60 years, our country has gone through violence and many innocents have died. When we talk about love, we have to be conscious of trying to turn down all the violence that we are going through. I feel very happy and thankful that I was invited to come. I would like to hear the message you have for all of us, all us Mexicans. Because we really do not want anymore violence in our country.
Thank you. In my country, England, there is very little pollution because the engines are green and no smoke comes out from the exhaust pipes of the cars. If the smoke is coming from the car, it is not good for our health. So in England, they are very strict about the worthiness of the car. The car should not release any smoke. So in order to have clean air, and less pollution, we need to fix our cars.
Human beings are same. When the heart is corrupt, when the heart has violence, then we have corruption, hatred and violence in the country. If we want to remove violence from our country, our people have to correct our hearts. Remove hatred, negativity from the heart.
There are many things that contribute to having a corrupt and violent society. But the solution is one: purification of the heart, bringing love in the heart.
So now, politicians, religious people, churches, temples, mosques – people have the problem in their heart. That is why they are all fighting, because the heart is impure.
Muslims, Christians and Jews all say, ‘I am the best.’ But they have hatred in the heart. The best is one who has love in the heart. This knowledge of spirituality will help human beings learn love. If you spread this message of love and people learn to love, the society will improve. In order to improve the society, we have to teach love. We need this message to be taken to everybody. When they remove hatred and learn love, there will be no violence in our country.
Q: I am very excited, happy and honoured to be here. Your Holiness, I respect you very much. How come you are so full of love and surrounded by such lovely people? You so down-to-earth and don’t seem to consider yourself a very high person. Other ‘holy’ people don’t let anybody get close to them and you are such a simple person!
We are also very honoured to be here with you. My Master, Lord Ra Riaz, is the clue.
We are all human beings. We are equal. Love is greater than us. Thank you so much for your love. I love you all.
Q: Why do us human beings get so confused by all the feelings we have in us?
Because we are a compound living being – we have a soul and a body and both have different feelings. When our soul is not awakened, we are confused. So we need to awake our soul. When our body needs energy, we want to be touched. When the soul is awakened, the confusion will go away.
