I COMPLETED MY WORK ON 30TH JANUARY 1969
"That was the day I could not sit up for My Universal Work. Because I was working in the higher planes, in order to keep contact with the gross world, I would pound my thighs. Because of the pounding, both of My thighs had become like stone. Later on, I asked you to pound on My thighs. You were not doing as I wanted. I wanted you to pound very hard. But the last afternoon of my Universal Work, on 30th January, I could not sit up. While lying down and doing My Work, I asked you to pound on My chest.
"But you were doing this very softly. Then I Myself started pounding very hard. You had tears in your eyes. I knew your feelings, but insofar as My order is concerned, no one should give importance to his or her feelings.
"Anyway, I completed My Universal Work that day. After months and months, I rested for two hours, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., I wanted to release the Universal Work, which I had completed. Maya was opposing Me, stopping Me from releasing it. I was suffering and suffering. The spasms made Me feel that the bones of My body were breaking and turning into powder.
"At 10:00, I told you, 'Remember this. I am not this body.'
"At 11:00, again I said to you, 'Remember this. I am not this body.'
"And again, at 12:00 midnight, I told you, 'Remember this. I am not this body.'
"The spasms went on increasing. They would not stop. My body became very stiff, and I had infinite pain. I said, 'When I was Jesus, My crucifixion lasted for one day. But no one has any idea how I have been crucified every day for months together.'
"Then at 4:00 a.m., I called all the Mandali members. They were holding My body. I said, 'Maya is killing me, but I will win. Maya is doing My work. Its main purpose is to oppose it. This is the duty Maya does for Me, because it is the perfect medium for My Work. Maya is just nothing. It has no substance, but its work is to make falsehood appear real. The whole world remains under its clutch. My work is to make people aware of this falsehood. That is why My work is so difficult. Infinitely difficult. But it happens according to My Own Wish.'
"As I was suffering, I said to you all, 'When I was Jesus, I said at the end, 'O Father, forgive them all, for they know not what they are doing.'
Now I say, 'O Father, forgive them all, for they know not what will happen.'
