In every religion truth has been described. As I can see it, everybody does not see it. That is why there is blindness. That is why there are these blind alleys where you end up arguing things. So there must be something that is missing within us. We have not been able to really relate truth to our central nervous system.
Now, what is that missing within us? We should find out. In all humility, we should know that there must be something within us. We have been arguing about so many things. We have been talking about so many things, reading so many books, going into all kinds of funny experiences right from alcohol to other drugs and gurus and this and that, but still we have not felt anything on our central nervous system.
Secondly, we have no control over that truth. So what is the reason? Is something missing in the human awareness? Is it that we are lacking something in our human awareness? All the books, all the scriptures which are true scriptures have said one thing: to know the truth, you are to be born again…
If you take Patanjali, who wrote a very ancient book, it is not that Patanjali asked you to stand on your heads. That is wrong. That is just a wee bit of it. But what Patanjali has written is that you have to achieve the truth on your central nervous system … meaning the experience of your spirit.

You have to find out that absolute without which we are in confusion.
That absolute is within you. That’s why Sahaja Yoga is a spontaneous thing, is a living thing. “Saha” means with, “ja” means born. It is born with you, as in a seed. All the maps of the seed that it is going to manifest are built-in. In the same way within you, your spirit and your kundalini are all already existing there and they are just waiting for a chance to give you your Self-realisation.
Before telling you about the benefits of Self-realisation, I have to tell you that you must keep your minds open as you would for any science lecture or any other lecture. There’s no jugglery or there is no shopping, guru shopping in Sahaja Yoga. It is a happening; it’s an actualisation. It is within you. It’s a living force, like a flower becomes a fruit or an egg becomes a chick; you get your realisation and you become a different personality.
A new dimension of awareness grows into you and this new dimension of awareness is an actualisation; it’s not just a mere words or any kind of a brainwash. It is an actualisation within you which happens by which you start feeling the collective consciousness. You are a part and parcel of the whole; so many have said it. We also believe in it that we are the part and parcel of the whole, but so far in our awareness, in our central nervous system, we have not felt that. So this is actually should happen to you. In this we have to accept, whatever is nourishing for our growth, after realisation. Gradually you start accepting …

Today when you see the whole world is busy fighting and they are trying to protect people from wars and creating great, huge, protecting instruments, the whole world seems to be in a mad race of killing each other, of destroying each other, of competition, ambition, leading to fighting and then to greater wars. They’re fighting for a piece of land. So ignorant they are. Can you carry even a pinch of this land with you when you die?
When you are born, you come with closed fists. And when you die, you go with open hands. What do you take with you? All right, you may not like to take anything, but do you enjoy whatever you think is so great, for which you are fighting? Why is this fighting going on among all nonsensical people? It’s surprising how people give up their peace, give up their understanding when it comes to a piece of land. And the whole thing has moved into a very wrong direction and is going toward complete destruction.
This is the thing that has made human beings so much suffering because of all their ignorance, by which they have all those habits, all those attractions, all those identifications…. They have to take to sense and … to their self knowledge.
Self knowledge is the key for a saviour to give to people. We have had so many saints. We have had so many Sufis. We had Tao people. We had Zen people. All kinds of realised souls came on this Earth. They all suffered. They were tortured. Nobody understood them. But now the time has come for you to know the truth, but truth which is not dry, truth which has compassion, truth that encompasses everyone, that brings the complete view of our existence. Why are we here on this Earth? What is our purpose? What should we do? Adi Shakti’s powers are such, of love and compassion, that they make you understand your Self first.
Love, for you, is very, very limited. There’s no awareness of your own being. Just imagine what a great task it is for you, how much you have to be seriously becoming aware of your Self first.
That is extremely important. First you have to be aware of your Self. And now you have the light of your spirit. In the light of that spirit, you can see what you are and you can see how far you are going, how wrong things you are doing, what harm you are doing to yourself and you have a power to cure it, to improve it and to come to your senses.

The truth is that this Divine Power is compassion, is love. This is the truth. They say God is love and God is truth, so the equation has to be made that truth is love and love is truth. But it is not a truth as you have for your own children, you have for your family – attached. Attached love is not truth. If you are attached to somebody, then you will never see the bad points of that person. If you are angry with somebody, then you can never see the good points of that person. But it is a complete, detached love and that love is extremely powerful because whenever you project that love to anyone, you will be surprised. The problems of that person will be solved. His personality will improve. Everything will work out in a very big way and his life will be changed….
To be detached in no way means you do not feel the other person. You do feel him. You feel the agony of that person, the trouble of that person, of the whole society sometimes and of the whole country, but your feeling is so detached that the All-pervading Power takes over. First we must have full faith in the capability of this All-pervading Power. As soon as you are detached, you say, “You do it….” The whole thing changes completely because you transfer all your responsibilities, all your problems to this Divine Power which is so powerful, which is so capable, which can work out anything.
