Diwali

Diwali lights

Diwali lights

The lights of your heart together make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction.

It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy.

But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness. We don’t see any darkness anywhere. We see lights, and lights, and lights.

Then what is the thing missing? Missing is our sincerity. We have to be very sincere with ourselves, because it is not just a borrowed love or borrowed joy, but it is from within the source. It’s flowing and flowing and flowing.

So that is to be awakened, and that love should flow, and our small petty things like jealousies and competitions and all those things which spoil us must be washed away. And it can be washed if your heart is full of love.

Today is a day of spreading that light of love, so that everybody feels enlightened and happy and forgets these petty problems.

I am happy that you have been able to get some hall. It’s all luck that we got it. People were so much worried about getting a hall. But it had just happened. So you should know also that our destiny is all also guided and looked after. You are already blessed people; there is no doubt about it. And we should not worry about small things and small matters. It will all work out very well, you will see, if you just leave it to your destiny, which is very high, very great – in this your own destiny you will go very far.

This is the Promise of Diwali to you all, that you will reach the highest and the noblest way of life. Every word I say will be there to prove what I say is there.

Whatever petty problems you have, they’ll all be washed off. All these are the messages from the Divine. You don’t have to worry about petty things, about money, about jobs. That’s not your job. Your destiny will work it out.

You have a promise that you’ll be looked after. I hope you believe in that promise and are joyous in the highest way. I bless you all from my heart, all of you, for a very happy and prosperous Diwali.

Depiction of the raising of the Kundalini

Depiction of the raising of the Kundalini in Sahaja Yoga

The raising of the Kundalini manifests a spontaneous power of tuning in. She grants integration and redemption, the Holy Ghost within. We indeed have walked through the secret passage to the other side of the screen of our existence. The potential unfolds, the mechanism is found, the divide between man and God is crossed. Because, in the last analaysis, the oldest love story is between Him and us. Lao Tzu spoke of ‘The Way’, Confucius of ‘The Path’, Shri Krishna, of yoga, Christ, of the second birth. When we can go more fully into the state of thoughtless awareness, or Nirvichara Samadhi, after some deepening practice of Sahaja meditation, we realize that the state of Being is accessible. The opening of the last chakra opens to us the bliss of pure freedom, without limitation of any kind. When we love, we know, and by manifesting the Kundalini, He gave us, through His compassion, the way of knowing. The oldest love story in the world is between God and His creation.

The Dawning

tb-sunrise-vishnu.JPG

Dewdrops gleaming in the early sun
Lighten the way to the dawn’s fair morn,
Beckoning the wayfarer to greet the day.
In such a way the Divine essence
Encapsulates our hearts’ yearning,
The desire to be One with the essential part of God.

As the sun’s warmth and energy make light of the morning dew,
In the same way our yearning prepares the way
For the blossoming of the Spirit,
The ability to be One with the Whole.

Drop after drop, the Essence of the Divine water
Becomes the totality, the One-ness of God.
We are drenched with the Love and the Bliss and the Joy
Of the Amrut that flows from the Divine Being.

Ashram of the Spirit

(Ocean of Divine Love)

The only divinely pure ashram
Is The Ashram of The Spirit
The only divinely real ashram
Is The Ocean of Divine Love
The only ashram full of compassion
Is The Heart of The Spirit
The only ashram of unconditional forgiveness
Is The Ashram of Pure Divine Love
Let us join The Ashram of The Spirit
Let us dissolve our Self-Spirits in IT
 Let us integrate in the only collective
Collective designed by The LORD
 Collective only of Love, Joy, and Peace
Where we are a part and parcel of The Whole

The Sign of Peace

                       Shri Matajiram_dassehra_05yp2_les_avants_871004.jpg

You should find, yourself, what’s wrong with you. But it’s not what’s wrong with you that is the problem. What’s right with you is the attitude. Whatever is right with you, put your foot on that. Establish yourself on that point and then develop yourself further. Peace is the keynote…

Try to assimilate within yourself. First grow yourself. That growth itself will tell others how one should be. Your own character, your own temperament, your own nature, your own behaviour – all this will tell others that this is a great man and they will try to follow your example.

Example is the best teaching. When the tree is small, even if it says, “I am great,” nobody is going to come and sit under a dwarf tree. But when it is a big tree, you can see the shade and everybody knows it’s a big tree and they can come and sit under that. You don’t have to tell. In the same way, when you grow you don’t have to certify that “I am great.” It just works.

Now the peace within expresses, first, as peace with others. That is the first sign of the manifestation of peace. Such a person doesn’t use harsh words, doesn’t use cruel words, but he is also not a person who is ineffective. He is very effective, using very sweet and nice words. Maybe he begins by using harsh words, then he mellows down and comes down to a position where he is effective as well as he is very mild and sweet. Such a personality has to be developed outside.

Shri Mataji, 1985
