You can become the prophets

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk extract by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.  The talk took place in Birmingham, England on the 9th July 1982.

Actually I am just a catalyst, you can say. Just a candle which is enlightened. And this candle, when touches another candle which is ready, that gets enlightened. I mean you may give it a big scientific name, this, that, a charged personality, this, that, I don’t understand. It’s very simple for me. You are all ready for it. I just touch you and you get enlightened and you get the light and when you touch someone, that person also gets enlightened.

Now you may say, “Mother how can that be so simple?” I mean so many people say that “Mother you are too simple, how can that be?” I just don’t understand. What should I have, two horns or something to make it complicated? Everything that is living is the simplest thing. That’s the sign of living. Have you seen the flower? How simple it is to grow a flower. It just works. You just get some seeds, sow them, and you get the plants. How simple it is. Do we ever think how it works out. Looks very complicated. If you start thinking about it, you will go mad if you start analyzing it. But it’s so simple.

In the same way, this happening is also a very, very simple thing. It is called Sahaja. Sahaja has two meanings. Sahaja means simple, also it means the thing that is born with you. Sahaja is a simple thing because it is born with you. I mean your nose is born with you, all right, it’s a simple thing. You don’t have to do anything, press it or anyway do anything to it to breathe. It’s there, in the same way, this built in process is within you, it’s just there. To me it is absolutely simple and to you also it will be simple as soon as you get it.

So this argument about it being so simple, I just can’t understand, myself. Why should there be an argument? Supposing you can eat this way (Shri Mataji puts hand to mouth in normal way), why should ask that “how can it be so simple to eat this way?” It’s so simple because it is so vital. It is so important. All vital things are simple and easily available, like your own breathing. For that if you have to do something special, then this breathing is not possible. How many people are going to survive?Continue reading“You can become the prophets”

You are ready for Self-realisation

Please enjoy the following extract from a Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji, held in Birmingham on the 9th July 1982.

Now the prophets were we can say, like William Blake was a prophet all right, he was a seer. He saw this future, he’s mentioned everything that was going to happen to Sahaja Yoga, no doubt. I don’t know how many are aware of it. Most or them thought he was a lunatic. They couldn’t believe him, when he talked of all these things, that Jerusalem is going to be established in England’s pastured land. Nobody could believe, they said, “must be mad.” But the time has come. Jerusalem is to be established. There’s a special thing about England and he saw that hundred years back, clearly, the whole picture. But nobody understood him. He was a prophet, nobody understood him what he said. Those who understood also had an academic sort of an interest in him and some people did feel there may be some sort of a truth in what he has said and described.
