Mother Earth

Earth

Earth

So just now one has to accept that to be like the Mother Earth we have to be forbearing – dhara. She is the sustenance of everything, she takes everything, the vibrations are sucked in. And now for the first time, after realisation you can give her back what you have got it from her. You can give vibrations to her trees that are created; you can make them beautiful. You can transform a flower into a more beautiful flower. Now whatever you have to give, what you have got from the Mother Earth you can give, because your Mother Earth is awakened within you now. So you return her back everything that you got from her and give it to others: generosity, the greatness of heart, nobility, forgiveness, love, affection, bearing everything for love ….

So this is what one has to develop now, whether you are men or women: as Sahaja yogis you must develop a new consciousness of affection, love and compassion.

Shri Mataji, 1983

The Power of a Child

adi_shakti_97.jpg

In 2005 we had a Sahaja Yogi family as a neighbour. At that time their daughter was in second class, around seven years old. One day she told us that her teacher asked the children how they pray to God. Then the child said that we have an energy inside us which loves us very much, and if we pray to that energy that will give all of us lots of love. Then the teacher asked her to pray.

Then she made all the children take off their shoes, open their hands, close their eyes and pray to Mother Kundalini, for Her to give all of us the love of God and make us good children. Then she asked the other children to check above their heads, and many of them felt vibrations.

There was a child in her class who had met with an accident. So she told all of them that if we pray for him to Mother [Shri Mataji], She will cure him. So then again all the  children prayed for this child to help him cure faster.

She told us this experience and we were so amazed, and she was hardly seven years old at that time. The “kidshakti” [power of children] is really spontaneous, and they all are great souls of this universe incarnating on this earth for doing the work of Shri Adi Shakti, the Almighty Creator of this universe.

Balancing Ourselves

Pink frangipanni

But the spirit itself is a sensitive thing. It is there, no doubt. It stays there, no doubt. But that it should shine in our attention, you have to know that your attention has to be congenial to the spirit. If the attention is not congenial, then the spirit doesn’t shine. The spirit will shine on an attention which is steady. Steady it. By balancing, you bring a steady state. Balance your thoughts.  Balance your eyes. Balance your desires. Try to balance it. Ego and super-ego – you balance it. Attention is balanced very much like that.

Now how do you do it? With your will. First of all, you desire and then you act. “Where am I going? What am I doing? I am a seeker. Is this the thing I have to do as a seeker?” Immediately the balance is there.

So this balancing has to come. The foremost thing is to balance yourself. Any extreme behaviour must be balanced. Any extreme attitude to life must be brought down.

Now here we find that the will acts, opposed in an opposite direction. For example, people become obstinate. They do not want to accept that we have to balance and they say, “Oh, I’m all right,” and they will give all explanations to show that they’re all right. For whom are you giving the explanations? You are fighting with yourself. Why? Because you are not yet integrated fully within yourself…

Integration comes in when you do something, you wish something, you enjoy something, you want something. Then you find integration is also wobbly in your attention. But if you want your spirit, you just want your spirit to be happy because if the spirit is happy it means you’re happy. The spirit is always happy. How are you going to make the spirit happy?

The only thing when you say you want the spirit to be happy, what you are saying is this: that you want your attention to be happy. If you keep your attention happy and cheerful, completely integrated with your being, not with your ego, this is where the discretion has to be used…

So with discretion, you will know how to correct yourself, even rationally.

Now your rationality is absolutely logical. Before this, rationality was illogical. But now, with integration, your rationality becomes logical and it tells you, “No, this is wrong; this cannot be.”

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaThe joy of giving Realisation! It was to be found in abundant supply at the Mind, Body and Spirit Festival at Melbourne Exhibition Centre held over the election weekend in November 2007. Mother’s magnetic charm again won the hearts as seekers flocked in their droves to the Sahaja Yoga stall.

The flavour of the Festival was surprisingly mainstream, with many families and ordinary working folk making the pilgrimage. Beset from all sides by charmers, soothsayers and all manner of charlatans, seekers plotted a course through the maze of flashing lights and gimmicks. The Sahaja Yoga stall stood like a beacon emitting waves of Shri Mataji’s love to which so many souls were drawn.

At times the Sahaja Yogis could barely keep up, such was the interest created by the fascinating sight of our brothers and sisters raising Kundalini after Kundalini, with many people having to wait their turn for the Divine introduction to our sweet Mother.

There is no doubt the festival was a battleground. War was being waged on a subtle level for the hearts and souls of these seekers whose ranks have swelled tremendously in number. Yes, the negativity was also well-represented. The negativity, however, was no match for the heavenly radiance of Shri Mataji and Her soldiers of God.

Many thanks to all the Sahaja Yogis who gave their time and effort. All will testify to the awesome spiritual recharge received from giving hundreds of people their Realisation, some of whom have attended our subsequent public programmes. The joy bestowed upon every Sahaja Yogi from the beaming smiles and glowing faces of the newly realised was the rich dividend of acting as an instrument of Shri Mataji’s love.
