Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

So the attention becomes enlightened after realisation. You pay attention to anything, it works. It does work, no doubt; you try. Those who have got realisation should try this. Try your attention, but attention has to be pure. You have to purify your attention, and the best way to purify it is to keep your Agnya Chakra open. When this centre is open which is the centre of Christ, which I have shown that it can only open through the Lord’s Prayer after realisation, when you open that, then you are in that state where your attention is divine.

And you’ll be amazed how things work out, even the smallest things, the material things, the useless things and the great things, and the subtle and subtlest, and how you start growing. So the growth is to be achieved by purifying your attention, and to purify this attention is to keep your Agnya Chakra open and be in thoughtless awareness. You watch something; you don’t think about it. Zen said the same thing but I think people didn’t understand, you see. Before realisation it’s like telling about colours to a blind man. Zen said the same thing; you watch a thing without thinking about it. They created patterns which didn’t mean anything, which you see it without thinking. But that’s only possible after realization. So the thinking process minimizes and you start witnessing.

Shri Mataji, 1981

Shri Mataji, Easter 1988Christ’s message of love and forgiveness is the same even today, preached by all – all the saints, all the incarnations, all the prophets. They all have said about love and forgiveness. If it was challenged or people felt that this won’t work out, they were asked to have faith in what was said.
Shri Mataji, 1996

If you love a person, you do forgive. You don’t feel bad. Not to forgive is dificult, but to forgive is the best. At least when you forgive, there is no headache for you.

So this love, which is joy … when this love melts and flows like a river and gives nourishment to all the surrounding trees on the shores, that is the time. It is the completion of the individuality or a personality of that love. And that’s the time it feels fulfilled. It’s not just that you have a light in the corner, but it has to flow, it has to move, it has to flourish. Love is not something dead like a stone. When it melts, it encompasses everything and everything becomes very beautiful with that.

So you have to first understand that life is for giving joy to others because you are now saints and your light has to give joy.
Shri Mataji, 1991

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

Every day in the early morning this faithful dog
Sits quietly beside my chair
For as long as I do not acknowledge his presence
By the touch of my hand.
The moment he receives this small recognition,
Waves of happiness leap through his body.
In the inarticulate world
Only this creature
Has pierced through good and bad and seen
Complete man,
Has seen him for whom
Life may be joyfully given,
That object of a free outpouring of love,
Whose consciousness points the way
To the realm of infinite consciousness.
When I see that dumb heart
Revealing its own humility
Through total self-surrender,
I feel unequal to the worth
His simple perception has found in the nature of man.
The wistful anxiety in his mute gaze
Understands something he cannot explain:
It directs me to the true meaning of man in the universe.

 Rabindranath Tagore

Theatre of Eternal Values production                                                                                                           William William Blake is recognised in Sahaja Yoga as a great realised soul. It is very fitting, then, that a very talented theatre group made up of Sahaja yogis was involved in developing and presenting a play about William Blake, to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of William Blake’s birth.

From November 20 to December 2, 2007, the international theatre company, Theatre of Eternal Values, performed William Blake’s Divine Humanity at the New Players Theatre in London, UK, in the very heart of the country where Blake took his birth – and a stone’s throw away from Fountain Court near the Strand where he spent the last years of his life.

The press wrote:

“With Blake’s beautiful words and the supple and constrained movements of the cast, the Theatre of Eternal Values enact a series of tableaux based on Blake’s etchings, as well as using his work to elaborate on the poet’s life. This piece is a loving and sophisticated work created to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Blake’s birth.”

“It was always going to be a theatrical challenge, as writer Tim Bruce says of attempting to do justice to the complexity of Blake’s works, and the Theatre of Eternal Values rose beautifully to it, presenting a wonderfully lyrical production of William Blake’s Divine Humanity.

“The beautiful voice and narration of The Bard set a quiet, centred, yet dramatic tone to the play, and gave it an unhurried meditative quality, in which Blake’s visionary message was brought alive. The performance drew the audience in from the beginning, and invited reflection on Blake as a mystic poet, and on how relevant his work still is, 250 years later. The fact that this play is being performed in the heart of London, the city in which Blake spent his life, and one that embodies many of the materialistic capitalist values Blake spoke out against through his work, makes it all the more relevant.”

This is the first time that Blake’s prophetic books have been performed on stage. Here the story of Jerusalem is set against the background of Blake’s masterly engravings from The Book of Job and interspersed with key moments in Blake’s life, incorporating original music and contemporary dance.

The play has evolved over one and a half years in a series of collective workshops in Cabella (Italy), London (UK), Vienna (Austria) and Everbeek (Belgium) and is the culmination of the creative talents of many people from twelve countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, India, Italy, Spain, UK.

It will be possible to see a live performance of William Blake’s Divine Humanity in various countries in 2008 or to purchase a DVD (estimated release date: May 2008).

Shri Mataji

Everything that you are doing is for God and that is why you are doing it for your Self.

So introspection is very important. Criticising others should be less and criticising yourself and laughing at yourself is the best.

I laugh at myself many a times and say many things like that, if you have noticed. That makes life so interesting. That will kill your ego.

“How I am trying to assert myself and where is the meekness that Christ has talked about?” It is a natural goodness within us. Once it shines and shows, you become so beautiful, so loveable.

Whether you are sitting here near me or there, I know who is that kind. My heart just opens for such a personality. I know who they are. But even if I know, I will never tell you. It is better that you know yourself.

Shri Mataji
