Please enjoy the following extract from a talk by the founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in which she talks about kundalini awakening and its relationship to the Spirit. The talk took place on the 3rd April 1981 in Sydney.
You cannot force it. It’s a light within you, a flicker.
And the analogy could be, like the gas that rises and touches the flicker and the whole gas gets enlightened. The flicker is awake all the time and watching. Then the whole thing becomes the truth. Truth is very different from what we know as truth. Is new dimension, by which we know, this is the truth and this is not the truth. You can ask any questions when you are connected with your Spirit. Ask any question. Ask the question about me. Can ask question about Christ, about Moses, about God. Ask any question. And when the answer is “yes,” you’ll get cool breeze coming into your hands. If you ask any negative questions, you’ll lose your vibrations. Might get tingling, might get heat. Because now your computer is connected with the Absolute and the rapport has been established of the truth. This is a new awareness you get by which you become aware of truth which is the vibratory awareness. Through vibrations a child also can know. There are many children who are born realized. And they know where is the kundalini. They know. They will tell you where is the kundalini. It’s the truth. Because they know the truth. For that you don’t need too much of mental development. They are very dignified. They understand it better than many elderly people and people who are placed very highly in life.Continue reading“When this light shines within you, you get collective consciousness”
I will show you how the center is made. Now this is the center and we have a right and left, right and left movement of the right and left sympathetic nervous system, this is the center. The center is formed by the left side and right side circle of the fingers as you can see clearly. Now when a person asserts too much movement onto the right or to the left, this just gets dislocated. Now when it has dislocated, this center loses its power because its deities or its inspiring force dies out. And the cells which are looked after by this center become on their own, they become on their own. Because the relationship with the whole is lost. So they start growing out of proportion to other cells. So then we say that these cells are malignant, because they can just grow like a nose will grow too big to cover the whole face and no other cell can grow under their overpowering. This is one of the examples. Now the other diseases that can be called by left side behavior are the diseases of the mind, but mind is a very vague thing in the Western language.
To make it clear, let us see that the left side, the movement of the left side that is emotional movement, emotional behavior, too much emotional inclination causes the left side to move or activate too much. Any emittance that comes in from the left side reacts violently on the left sympathetic nervous system. Now, when that happens, the left side movement starts, the surprising thing is that when we work it through our heart, because emotions come from our heart, our brain quits. That shows that there is a balance attached in the whole system that if you work too much with the heart, then your brain fails. And the right-sided person is a person who works for the future, the one who plans for the future, the one who uses his body for the activating of the desire. When this activity takes place, physical or mental, then another thing is developed in our head as a by-product, is the ego. Left side the super-ego is developed and the right side the ego is developed, but they cross over. By the time you are twelve years of age, these things get completely covered and the fontanel bone area becomes a calcified bone. That’s where you develop your ideas; you become Mr. X, Mr. Y. I would say that’s how you become the egg.
It’s beautiful. I mean these are the real seekers of what William Blake has described. So very happy. All right. So now we’ll have to have our Self-realization. First of all I have to tell you that all of you should have full confidence that you can get your Self-realization. Whatever may be your race, whatever may be your religion, whatever may, you might have done, whatever may be your age, anything, you all can get Self-realization. That is first confidence with it, it is very important. Not to doubt yourself. In no way please doubt yourself. You are all ready just to get your realization. But still there are, I must say, three conditions which are very simple if you understand.
The first one is that you are not to feel guilty at all. It’s a fashion to feel guilty sometimes, sometimes we feel guilty. This guilt business is of no use, I tell you. After all you are human beings, and human beings can only commit mistakes, you are not God. So what is there to feel guilty? Are you feeling guilty because you are a human being? But it’s very difficult for people not to feel guilty. It’s something so much built in; especially in the West I’ve seen people feel too much guilty. Not in India. I don’t think Indians know that style. There’s nothing to feel guilty, and those who tell you that you are a sinner, just think there is something wrong with them. Nobody has business to say that. At present you understand that none of you are guilty in the eyes of God. Take it from me. Believe me. So forget it and don’t feel guilty about anything whatsoever you have done. Let the kundalini decide. You don’t do it. But do you know that if you feel guilty then this center goes out of order? A very remarkable center this one is, on the left side. When it goes out of order what happens? You might get angina, you might get spondylitis, or your organs may become lethargic. Physically it has an effect. We always say in English language “pain in the neck”; see somebody must be knowing about it to say “pain in the neck”. You see this pain in the neck is nothing but feeling guilty. It’s all mental. Try to understand it’s all mental. So this is the first condition you have.
The second one is that you have to forgive everyone without even thinking about them, in general. This is another very difficult situation. But just see logically. Whether you forgive or don’t forgive what do you do, logically? Nothing. What do we do? We are just torturing ourselves. When we don’t forgive others we are just torturing ourselves. But the people who have troubled us are very happy, while we are playing into their hands and torturing ourselves. You’ll feel much lighter if you just in your heart you say, “I forgive everyone.” In general. Don’t think of them. Thinking itself is a headache.
Now the third one is also very simple as I’ve said. You should be very confident because you are a human being and on the whole you should be very pleasantly placed towards yourself. You shouldn’t condemn yourself. In no way you should try to say that how is it possible and everything will work out because it’s all built in. Now supposing you come in this hall and you have to put on the lights, you have to just switch on because it’s built in. But supposing outside only you start saying, it may not work, it will work, whatever. You just see if it works or not. Why not give it a full chance? So don’t doubt yourself. It is going to work out. This is very important, I must tell you, because we have learnt to doubt ourselves, doubt others. There’s nothing to doubt. You all have got this power within yourselves, and it will work, I am sure it will work.Continue reading“Self-realisation with Shri Mataji”
