HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Today we find in the whole world a great inner movement to seek the truth. This movement has come because we feel that so far whatever we have tried we have not been very successful. We are not being happy, satisfied. All kinds of ideologies, religions came into being. But they have failed to give what they promised about it. This failure for every honest and thinking man has opened a new era of seeking. And this era of seeking has to culminate into something substantial, has to give the light of reality to people and not just talking.
If you categorize the past enterprises of people into politics or into religion you can easily see the principle behind it was either money-oriented or power-oriented. All religions have been money-oriented. They use the name of great incarnations to make money. And people also very humbly accepted that, “We have to pay money to these people who are teaching us religion.”
The another side of all these religious bodies have been to give us a kind of a idea that they are very powerful. They make you fight with each other. These organizations have created soldiers out of you; militaries out of you. This has happened in the past and it is happening even today. We have to be very alert and understand that God does not want you to fight among yourselves. God has created only one world. Human beings are saying that, “We are this and we are that.” They talk of peace and unity when there is no peace in their hearts. There are scandals and scandals coming out of these so called religions. Wars after wars you find they are fighting in the name of religion.
Today somebody asked me, that why should I come and talk to the Western people? I told him that in my mind there is nothing like East and West. The Western culture, the Western enterprises, endeavours are like the growth of a tree, but they do not know about their roots. When the tree grows and grows, without paying attention to its roots, without knowing from where do you get your nourishment, it would be totally destroyed one day. From the East you have to know about the roots. And East has benefited from your knowledge of science, of all this growth outward – why not the tree benefit from the knowledge of the roots?
This nourishment comes to us spontaneously from a happening that has to take place within us. That happening is not mental, it is not emotional, neither it is some sort of a physical acrobat. It is the inner awakening of a residual force within us, called Kundalini. This Kundalini is the reflection of the Holy Ghost – about which no priest can talk. She is the Primordial Mother, She is the Primordial Power, She is the power of Divine Love. And in a subtle form She exists in every atom and every molecule. We have never felt it before – but is described very clearly in so many scriptures that It is the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost. You have to feel the Cool Breeze oft the Holy Ghost, of the Pentecost, as they call it. Of the Pentecost. But the way people think Pentecost is, that to get possessed is the way it is Pentecost. When the disciples of Christ started talking about the centers and about the channels, they thought they were talking in some other language. So some people think, if they get possessed and start screaming and shouting, now they have got the blessings of the Holy Ghost. This is sheer madness. If you are blessed by the Holy Ghost, you will become much more aware, much more dynamic, much more compassionate. You have to become a blissful personality. And you have to become the witness – that you can see the whole drama very well. So it is a state which one has to achieve. It is not just a ritual of putting some water on your heads and saying, “You are baptized.” Actually when you are really baptized you get the Cool Breeze coming out of your fontanel bone area. So please do not identify yourself with all such false dramas that are played around, because it is not going to do you any good.
In these modern times scientifically we can say one thing, that it is the last breakthrough, is the epitome of our evolution, where you enter into that subtle power of knowledge, so that you feel on your fingertips the all-pervading Power. And you feel your own centers and the centers of others, in the new era of collective consciousness. This collective consciousness is an expanded awareness of your central nervous system. But talking about it one should not believe. One has to experience. One has to see for one self.
If it is the living process – how can you pay for it? The people who ask money for religion are really hungry wolves. This is a living process, which is something like a seed sprouting. What do we pay to the Mother Earth for giving us such beautiful fruits and such beautiful lush greenery? What efforts can we put in? It’s spontaneous, it works spontaneously. The Divine is anxious to reveal Itself to you, but you have to keep your minds open. And think of your benevolence and your own powers and your higher state which you can easily get. It’s all your own. Just like one candle which is enlightened can enlighten another candle which is ready. It just happens that way. Not by arguments, not by discussions – but by living force within us which has not yet come into play.
There have been lots of misunderstanding about Kundalini – specially in German language there have been very funny books, I know about them. That shows people have not gone thoroughly into it to find out the truth. Kundalini doesn’t trouble anyone, She is your Mother, She gives you birth, She takes all the trouble.
Now, the problem with our own understanding is that either we are too much conditioned, even by science, or we are identified with some falsehood. For this a simple example is that if you are holding on to say – some sort of a snake and there is no light – no use telling you about it. But when you have the light then you yourself will drop it. So when your Kundalini brings the light of your Spirit in your attention you become aware – fully aware, because now you know the absolute truth on your fingertips.
Now, you don’t have to have any effort, no money – but an open mind to see for yourself.
May God bless you!
Tomorrow I will again come and explain to you little more about how we get into diseases and into troubles. Now I would say, if you have any questions you can ask me, but ask relevant questions. There’s no need to be aggressive because I’ve not come here to take anything from you – but to give you something that is your own. If you do not want to have it I cannot force, it cannot be forced. It has to work out. Like the way Christ has described the parable that, “Some seeds fell on the rock, but some fell on the fertile land – and they became the trees.”
May God bless you!
