Lighting a Divine Spark

The Third Advent

The Third Advent

The following extract from “The Third Advent”, by Gregoire de Kalbermatten, provides a wonderful description of the awakening of the kundalini to bring about Self-realisation.  

Spirit or Atma, it is reported, is the spark of divinity in man, and spirituality is about lighting it.  The spark to enlighten the flame of the Spirit must be more than just the sincere desire to reach our deepest reality.  Religious, philosophical and Gnostic traditions emphasize that experience and not just faith, embodies the description of a cognitive happening, a moment of initiation, which opens to us the gates of a higher spiritual knowledge.  It is called ‘samadhi’ for the Hindu, ‘satori’ for the Zen Buddhist or the ‘second birth’ Christ mentions to Nicodemus.  Today, it is commonly referred to as Self-realization.  Self-realization must be understood in two ways: it is the crossing of a key threshold in the process of self-improvement.  It is also a breakthrough in the collective evolution of mankind.  Self-realization opens vast provinces of experience whose beauties have been sung by ancient poets.  Let is suffice to say here that it marks the entry into a state where we grasp better, enjoy more, and become more effective.

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

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaIf you are a Sahaja Yogini, then at the time of crisis, you should become thoughtless. That’s one of the signs. I have seen with Myself, if there is any crisis in the family, I just become thoughtless. That means what? That God takes you in, your problems. He puts His hand, He puts His protection and He takes you out of it and makes you absolutely thoughtless. And in that thoughtless awareness you discover what is right, what is wrong. So even in  crisis, this thoughtless awareness is all the time extremely alert. It becomes much more alert than normal. That’s the sign of a Sahaja Yogi and the sign of Sahaja Yogini … In wisdom you understand that all the Deities are just with you. And whatever happens to you, they are before you. Nobody can harm you. Nobody can touch you. You are so protected. Lotuses are not protected. You are so protected that if anybody tries to harm you, immediately there is protection. Also your own protection is there, as I said, that you jump into thoughtless awareness.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ

First of all, He was born in a manger. To be born in a manger means in a poor circumstance. That means He showed there’s no need to have money or there’s no need to have a huge, big properties or anything to be impressive on people. Those were the days where people respected the tapasyis, the ones who were doing tapasya [penance]. That was the time to do tapasya.

So He came on this Earth and lived like a tapasyi. On the contrary, the Christians are the most self-indulgent people you can think of. You go to any Christian nation, you’ll be amazed how they are just slaves of money and their watches. How they are living – it’s very shocking to see they are following Christ. “Yes, we follow Christ.” Then follow means what? He’s there and you are standing backwards moving. Is that the following?

So, today we are talking about Christ. He’s sitting in a position of Agnya Chakra controlling pineal and pituitary. By that, He controls our conditioning. If we follow Him, then we cannot be conditioned by anything because He talked of Spirit only. Spirit cannot be conditioned, conditioned by anything. Whatever is good, that will be accepted, good, congenial to the Spirit.

… you see Christ talking to people, giving them different ways of explanation, what happens after Realisation, how a seed is sprouted and how it can get spoiled, and very beautifully He explained to people.

Actually, we have to understand that Christ never started any exclusive religion. Never. None of them. Specially Mohammed Sahib has talked about Abraham. He’s talked about Moses. He’s talked about Christ and His Mother much more than in the Bible respected Her.

His life was so charming and so beautiful. Like a shooting star, He came on this Earth, but left such a remarkable impression on people. His crucifixion was a part of the game because He had to make the way in the Agnya Chakra. To cross the Agnya Chakra, He was crucified. But His message is not crucifixion. People wear the cross and I feel very hurt about it… But that’s not the message. That’s not [what] you should celebrate, that He was crucified. There are people who celebrate it.

You have to celebrate His Resurrection, because human beings are to be resurrected. In Sahaja Yoga nobody’s crucified and is resurrected because of one crucifixion of Christ. That was enough. That was sufficient. You can’t carry the cross on your shoulder. Don’t have to. He’s carried for you. He’s done everything for you. He said also that He died for all the sinners. It’s a fact. If He had not done that, it would have been difficult to open your Agnyas because two problems, I told you, this conditioning and ego.

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga, 1996
