Becoming the GURU, from 1979 to 2008

...And today is the day of Guru Puja not my Puja but
your Puja 
as Gurus. 
I appoint all of you as Gurus, and today 
I will tell you, what 'I' have bestowed upon you and what great powers you already have within you …. /…Then for a Guru, as you are now,
you have all the knowledge, all the power [=raising the Kundalini, clearing the chakras aso] and everything, 
what you lack is the confidence and you have inertia. 
I do not know how this inertia is going to get outSometimes, people who are that inert, 
they also have a use. They are put in the cannons and blasted in the circus, so they can show their feats. They are so inert, that nothing can disturb them.
But you are my children, I have made you after the image of Jesus Christ, of Shri Ganesh. All their powers are available to you. 
But this is one point, I fail sometimes, I don't know how to remove your inertia. 
Because you have not practiced Sahaja Yoga, you have not gone into any practice. You have got it very easily, cheaply, you do not understand its value and so you just want to have it as a side track. 
You have to discipline yourself. Unless and until you discipline yourself, I leave it to your freedom because I have always believed in the freedom of my children because I think that they are not 'that low type', that I should use the freedom on them as a bar, that they should not use their freedom.
You are absolutely free:
-If you want to go to Hell, I will give you a chariot to go there, direct!
-If you want to go to the Heavens, I will provide with you a Viman [aeroplane] to go there. 
So, it is for you people to become dynamic and to have confidence within you. You know every Chakra, you know the rising of Kundalini. You know everything, so you can take it upon yourself.

  • Guru Puja on Advent Sunday the 2nd Dec. 1979 

… But still I find people are busy with other things. They go back into the same circle. You should be busy -I don't say that you should not do something for your living, you have to do it! 
This is one thing very important for us to know, that we have to work it out. We have to allow it to grow within ourselves. But I mean if you say that, "Mother, we have all faith in You, that's all." That's not sufficient. 
What faith do you have? What do you mean by "faith"? It is such a vague term. What is faith after all? Have you ever analyzed the word "faith"?
Some people think that "we have all faith in Mother. If we sing Her praise, finished!
For that, one has to reach a certain stage, like Adi Shankaracharya had reached!
Have you got faith in yourself, is the point. 
Who is having faith in me - is the one who has no faith in oneself?
You have to have faith in yourself and in all your fellow beings, all these other Sahaja Yogis. I have already told you that Sahaja Yoga is not going to work out individually. 
Anybody who thinks that, "I am something greater than the others" is a gone case.
Nobody should work Sahaja Yoga for oneself in that way. You have to work collectively for every one of them. 
Any one of you who thinks that you have something higher than the others have, you are sadly mistaken. It's like one eye saying that, "I am higher than the other", or one nose saying, "I am higher than the eyes." 
Everything has its own place in the body of Virata, and everybody is so important, as well as, dispensable.

  • 1979-1015: How Realization Should ... Develop, Public Program, Caxton Hall, London 

The Guru's Cabin - Andorra, 1987
Now, the Guru within you, will be awakened if you are strict with yourself, That's one point is very important. Unless and until you are 'strict' with yourself the Guru will not be awakened within you. People who are lazy lumps, who can not sacrifice anything, who are very fond of comfort, can 'never' be Gurus. Take it from me! 
They can be good administrators, they can be anything, but never a Guru.
A Guru should be willing to live the way he has to live. He should be able to sleep on stones, he should be able to sleep under 'any' circumstances, -not that the disciples should force on him, but it should be his own 'nature,' that he can adjust himself. Comfort can not fall on a Guru. 

CLEARING : Become a guru by 1984!
... Now? those who want your Guru principle to he awakened, must know that you should not ask for comfort. 'Even for a thing like that -yesterday you saw the dancing- one has to do real tapasya. 'Intensive' tapasya you have to do. You can not learn even a thing like dancing without going into a 'penance' about it.
So clear all the chakras, all the pradeshas [areas ruled by the chakras] are to be established, and 
after the establishment of the pradeshas, 
you have to establish the 'rapport' with others on the collective level.
Then [comes] a state when you become a complete Spirit at Agnya Chakra. 
It's easiest in Sahaja Yoga, and I've told you the reason -because you are such fortunate people. The easiest of easiest is Sahaja Yoga. The essence of Sahaja, Yoga that is the easiest thing to do. And that is why you should take full advantage of that easiest method made easy, absolutely, for you. 
This is the blessing of Guru Puja for you, that you all should become Gurus by next year. 
Just you have to dedicate and say today in your heart, to promise me, in your heart that :
«- Mother, not only we'll try, but we will be, and thrice you should say-we will be, we will be !»

  • 24/03/83 -- Awakening The Guru Principle -- Lodge Hill -- England 

SALT… and Guru Principle:
...So first thing is 
as the sea spreads its wings and says:
«All right, let the sun take away my water, let me boil, let it become the clouds!»
in the same way, you people have to understand that:
«unless and until I allow the sun -that's the Spirit-, to evaporate this water from me -means to give to others- how will I develop this guru principle within myself?»
You cannot have -s a l t - in the seawater, unless and until you evaporate it. So you cannot become a guru unless and until you allow the evaporation of this water, of this wealth, the money that you have. 
But, if you are not matured enough, like the sea, then you will remain at a level that, like mad, [you will go on] collecting all the muck of the world, and ultimately end up in some lunatic asylum. Because all maryadas are lost, all dharma is lost.
Without guru principle, how you can have dharma? 
You do not think of anybody else, you do not even think of your father, mother or anyone, you don't think of your collective work, you don't think of the world. That's too much! 
So you become small, small, small, small, small. 
But when this Lakshmi tattwa starts, that's the first inkling of love, love for others. I know you all love me very much. But it's not complete reflection of your Mother. 
You have to love each other, and share everything with each other, with love
Then, this first light of love Lakshmi starts showing in you. 
In that light when you move, you become very deeply generous, enjoy your generosity.
1990-1020: Diwali Puja, Sotto, Italy 

2008:Talk after Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure, Italy, 20th July 
Some have grown in Sahaja Yoga, some have not. Some are still carrying on with old catches. 
But now I have to say that quite a lot of you can become gurus -means: teachers- and you should act as teachers. To act as teacher you should know Sahaja Yoga, the theory and the practice of it, thoroughly well, and then you can become a guru. It's a very responsibility, lot of understanding for a guru.
You should not have any ego, first. You should not have any of your chakras catching. You should be absolutely clear all the time, and there the vibrations should be flowing in both the hands. If they are moving in one hand and not in another, you cannot become guru. So you have to be a perfect Sahaja yogi, then, you can be a guru.
I won't be able to go all over, but you have to go to other countries and create new Sahaja yogis. You can do it. To begin with you can use my photograph, but later on you can only put the photograph there, but use your own powers, and give realization. You can do it, and that is how we can spread Sahaja Yoga all over the world.
That doesn't mean you cancel me - no, not at all! I am there with you, and every place you work, you put my photograph. But realization you have to give, and try to give mass realization
If that doesn't work out, then you should know you are not a guru. If you can give mass realization, then only you are a guru, otherwise you are not.
I said you can use my photograph, but you have to give realization to people. … Now you have mastered Sahaja Yoga, so you should know what is to be done…. Can you imagine all of you, if you become gurus, how many Sahaja yogis we'll have all over the world?
… Tell them how to meditate, how to improve. It's now a very big responsibility. 
Actually I have done this work, and you can do this work also. So you all have to become a guru.
This is the day of Guru Purnima, and I bless you that you all become gurus. …
So it's a very big responsibility now. You've got your realization, and so four or five of you should join to form a Sahaja Yoga group, giving realization to people. Try! 
Of course my photograph would be there, but still you must try. 
Try to understand that now: what is your responsibility. If a position is given, you have to always carry on with the responsibility of that position. In the same way, if you become a guru you have a certain amount of responsibility, that your own behavior should be very good to begin with.
On stage, talk after the Puja
First you may get two people, then three people; I started with five! So you can imagine how one can go with it. Try first of all with two, three, five and more. You can also advertise afterwards. If you have given realization to people, say about, you have given realization to ten people [=locally], you can start your own organization
[=locally], or whatever you may call, and can work it out.
Now you have the power. You have the right. 
But you must have a temperament also. In the beginning you have to be very patient and kind, very kind. ….
All of you, promise me that you'll try to become gurus.

'I must say you have done no justice to me or to yourself.'

Krishna River... 
I have a vision no doubt, and I've been talking about it quite a lot; but [if] it ends up with the puja, it's not a good thing. 
I know some countries are very difficult. Try to find out what is the problem, why it is so very difficult. Attention has to be paid to this, that, what other human beings are doing, to destroy themselves, as if it is the part and parcel of the same game which we call as the Last Judgment; but let us, through our compassion and love, save as many as possible.

This is the work of Adi Shakti, not the work of any saint or any incarnation. They're all there, no doubt, they're all with us all the time to help us. But you people have the power of Adi Shakti which is very great, which is very penetrating, which is miraculous, it's so effective. But unless and until you become aware of your own powers, how will you work it out? It would be like a dead machine that has everything, but nobody is there to work it out.
1947 India/Pakistan partition
All the time I had to go through very, very hazardous times, and sometimes I've felt that I may have to take another birth, the way things are so difficult for me. 
But now for you it has been very easy: as if the one who makes the road has to work very hard, but those who walk on that, they don't realize how easily they have got it. And if they realize this then they will realize also, "Let many walk on this road, which was created with such patience, understanding and love."
I have to really see you, you all Sahaja yogis, doing your level best to change this world - has to be changed. As it is, the humanity has to be saved through you and nobody else. No president, no prime minister, no minister - none of these people can change the world and save it! It is you are entitled, you have got this power. Do you realize your own status, your own being which has risen so high? It is not there. 
If that realization is there you would go all out to express your love and compassion to other people, to make them realized what they are.
Only with Sahaja Yoga you can save this world, there's no other way out. Whatever you may try, say, to help the poor, to help this and that is something very, very superficial. Best thing is to give realization to every person you see.

We have seen children, they're coming up. They'll be great Sahaja yogis also, I can see that. But before them you have to show your own merits of what you have done. 
It's not a static work. It's a big movement which has to be really explosive; and unless and until such a great step is taken, I don't know who will be blamed for the doomsday. 
You are the ones who have to build up the destiny of human beings! 
Don't consider as yourself as something nothing. You could never have got your realization, you would never have come to me. Among so many, you are the ones who came to me and who asked for Realization and got it. 
You know it cannot be forced; this realization cannot be forced, this awareness cannot be forced, and the growth of this awareness also cannot be forced.
(...) But instead of telling me about people who are sick, people who have failed, people who are still in a state that cannot be improved, attention should be changed:
If there's one person who has got cancer anywhere, immediately at least ten photographs will come to me, leader will write to me, the wife's leader will write to me, everybody will write to me that "Mother, this is such-and-such thing." 
Why? Is that my job? That person can be cured, we have hospitals; can be cured by photographs. But attention always goes now to the compassion part of it, to those people who are so-called suffering physically, mentally, emotionally, financially. Also in the marriages. 
That's not your job, neither mine. 
If they are sick they should take a photograph and work it out. 
If it doesn't work, that means that doesn't deserve.

(...) But what about Sahaja Yoga? If you have one sick person, hundred Sahaja yogis will get after them. What is the reason? 
Is it compassion? It's not. 
They want to prove that they can cure that person - is not compassion. 
shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's
Compassion today is to transform human beings into Sahajis, into good people. That is the love of Adi Shakti. Because those who are born have to die in any case. We should not be unkind, of course, but our attention should be how many people we are giving realization. Is a very common thing that people indulge more into so-called curing and improving and this - it's all right.
(...) First of all you are a spiritual worker, you are not a social worker. Of course, by the way you can do social work, it doesn't matter - by the way.
But the main thing for you is to transform human beings. With that the greatest diseases of meanness, of cruelty, of torturing others, anger: all these diseases can be cured which are internal, not external. That is today wanted.
Every country's fighting and is tortured and is in peril all the time of getting destroyed. The only way you can do it is to give them realization.

Now what happens is to be seen very clearly, that when you give realization to someone and he values it and he grows into it, then you are protected, you are completely protected. Who protects you, you may say? The Adi Shakti, all right, but also there is a destructive power working in this world; not of negativity, but positive destructive power of Shiva. If He sees that if Adi Shakti's work is going on well, He's happy. 
But He's sitting there and watching each and every person, each and every work of Sahaja yogis, and if He finds something really very wrong I cannot control it - He destroys. I cannot go to that point. 
He destroys; not only destroys, but thousands He can destroy.
Anywhere there is a calamity, we can say, like an earthquake or some sort of a hurricane, all these things come through the working of Shri Mahadeva. I can't help you there. 
But if you really give realization to people, all these can be averted. Of course it is the whim, I should say, of Adi Shakti that She started this work of creating this world, of creating you and making you Sahaja yogis; but your responsibility is also very important.
You cannot be responsible. Maybe it was, I felt, my responsibility. But there's a difference:
I never felt it was 'my' responsibility, never felt this was 'my' job, never felt 'I have to do it' - I did it. That's the work. 
That's the kind of personality you should have. You have to do it in a very humble manner, in a very beautiful manner; and you'll be amazed to see how you are protected, how you are supported and how everything works out.
Abbot of a Zen-Rinzai Templ, (Japan Tour)

The greatest joy you will get when you will find you can give realization to people. You can change their lives. Never you would feel such joy even if you get, say, a big lottery maybe, a big job or a big name, or a very big award - no. The joy of creating Sahaja yogis is, knows no bounds, it's such a joy-giving thing. You develop such fraternity, such solidarity as they call it, such oneness; such enjoyment of love, enjoyment of compassion. It's a different level of enjoyment that's not like ordinary enjoyments.
(...) And that is what makes me sometimes little weak when I hear that Sahaja yogis now are getting involved in money, in cheating; I mean, all kinds of criminal activities they do. I can't understand, I can't believe it!
After getting the highest, why do you want to go so low as that? Because you have not yet felt what you have got, you have not realized what you have got, and you don't respect yourself. 
Still if you are on the same line and the same level, I must say
you have done no justice to me or to yourself.

1985, a year of revelations

Inauguration of "l'Avènement", June 29, 1985
On a Sahaj web-site, we were invited to dive into the Sahasrara-Day of 1985. Your Sawyamblogger remembered this puja, I was there. But I also remembered the whole year. 1985 was a "hard" year, indeed, full of hard revelations.
"The Advent" was ready, translated into French, nicely edited the publisher said, and was delivered for printing. But, meanwhile, the leadership in France was drowning into a crisis, and Shri Mataji asked me, in April, to move to Paris. 
I was a teacher in a High School in our National Education System, a huge state Administration managing as many people as the Soviet Red Army nicnamed "the Mammoth" . I was fully off-delay for any claim, but I made up a small file, and asked to leave my town Rouen (host of 1984 Sahasrara Day) to get a assignation in the capital. End of May, my Principal-Madam called me: «Totally incredible! You, really you do have relations! Indeed, you got it!»  Of course that was a suburban job, But, yes I was in Paris. (35 nationalities, thefts, fake bomb alerts, well, the Paramchaitanya did whatever It could, but It did work out!). 
End of June, the Book was "inaugurated" by Shri Mataji, and thanks to Gregoire, and to bookshop keepers, touched Seekers in many towns and also made all its way to Africa. Such a geographical boost never happened again insuch a manner and with such success.
But the "hard part" of 1985, the other memories are coming back  to me-including the cataclysm of Chamarande (July*), of course. One has therefore to dig into 1985's talks by Shri Mataji, and here are the results. Indeed, that was so direct!
- Creation of the "religion Vishwa Nirmala Dharma"
- You are the ones who are responsible. Prepare yourself!
- The people who are not in the Nirvikalpa state are not going to be saved
- This is my order!
- I will retire. ...- As I have told you, I am going back to India. 
-It's only the Sahaja Yogis who can blacken the Name of God Almighty.
What did happen, that Shri Mataji felt necessary to speak so directly?
IMO nowadays

On December 31st, 1985, the mandate as Chairman given to Sir CP at the IMO was to end, after three 4-years terms as Secretary General. Now 65 years old, the husband of Shri Mataji was retiring - in India. Brompton Square House, Home of the Srivastavas in London, and refuge of so many early Sahajis, was being sold. 
Suddenly, the Swiss, the only collective able to finance such a project (on credit, though), involved themselves in building that vast Ashram in Givrins, reserving a suite so that Shri Mataji could stay in Europe if she would come back visiting Europe for some puja.  
In Shudy Camps
Then came 1986, and the talks by Shri Mataji became again, say, back to normal. 
And in August, we celebrated Bhoomi Devi Puja at the new Mansion in Shudy Camps
The reason was that Sir CP had been re-elected for a new term, until 1990 - when Cabella's Palazzio Doria would be eventually purchased. The emergency was over.
Investigations into this 1985 year would lead us to discover two revelations about Shri Mataji's real ways:
There's a river called Yangtze ...
After every five minutes the scene changes, all the beautiful mountains
take another form, and you have lots of waterfalls,
and it’s very interesting. That is the kundalini.
Tao is that river. But it’s said that you should not divert your attention
to these temptations which are outside. You should see them,
but move . (Buddha Puja, 1992).
- 1 - The "divine plan" is like the Tao, it is fluctuating, it adapts itself, as a ship captain does.
Thus, all the year through, the evolution of Sahaja yoga was suspended to the votes of the "honorable representatives"of some 150 States, and Shri Mataji had changed Her projects according to Sir Cp's carrier.
- 2 - Facing the emergency to leave Europe and the West, while Sahaja was still poorly established there, Shri Mataji had to reveal openly what she really expected from us.
This is: we are to take all the responsibilities, those of our evolution, as those to creating new Sahaja Yogis, and save the Planet. And the Divine will hold us accountable for the results.

1985-0112: Announcement of Universal Nirmala Religion, Nasik
Now to make it more particular, I thought that, if you say universal religion, then it may not be that particular, because like the Buddhist, then we have got people who are called after Christ as Christians and after other people according to the incarnations.
So this time the incarnation being Nirmala, I thought we can call it The Religion which is Universal, in the name of Nirmala. So, to make it short, I thought we can call it "Universal Nirmala Religion". What do you say to that? (Applause)

1985-0206: A New Era - Sacrifice- Freedom- Ascent, India tour, Bordi
Please try to come up, so that I should feel that I did not lack in My fatherly attitude towards you - that awe, that understanding of a father's expectations.
 This I am not saying to you because it is some present situation because of you people particularly, or for anything which is very, very sort of a present-day problem - none of these things. 
Bordi, Meditation after the Talk on Sacrifice
But is my announcement of this new dimension into which we have to rise. 
And as in the war we have to declare "Now forward on!" in the same way this is a declaration. In no way to degrade you, in no way to insult you or to say anything about any one of you, but to just infuse that inspiration which led thousands and thousands, and millions and billions of people to sacrifice for a greater cause.
... So now have respect for yourself. Raise your heads. You are the ones who are going to fight. You are the ones who are responsible. Prepare yourself, prepare your body, prepare your mind, be discreet. This is My, I would not say "request" again, this is my order.

1985-0504:  before Sahasrara Puja, Laxenburg, Austria
But it's a serious matter, I must tell you, that once I've established the Religion, I don't want to have any holes in it. I avoided it because I was not sure. Now I know for sure that there are many who could be called as Nirmalites. Because no more black spots on the beautiful sari of your Mother! It has to be absolutely highest quality. Gradually we used to drop out people, gradually worked out this but there's no time left now. 
As I have told you, I am going back to India..../... 
They are not going to be saved. They will be punished. May not be in the same way those who are not Realized souls, but they will not occupy the seats in the realm of God Almighty.
At least you must reach the state of Nirvikalpa. Do not blame any circumstance. Do not blame your father, mother, brother, atmosphere, this, that. There's no need to blame anyone. "Because somebody came, we were influenced." What is the matter with you? I am here, you are not influenced by me. How are you influenced by somebody who is so stupid, obviously, so dominating? That means - what is your level?

1985-0613: Public Program, Geneva, Switzerland
Entrée de l'Ashram de Givrins
Question: Shri Mataji, they ask why your photo - he says that why people are using your photo to get Realization? Why are they not strong enough to get their Realization?
Shri Mataji: You are not. What can I do? I wish you were that strong. My photo gives Realization, curing, everything. What can I do about? That's a fact. I must accept. I'll be very happy if your photo can do that. I will retire. As I am a happily married woman, I got my children, my grandchildren, I don't need anything. If you can do it, I'll be very happy. Can you do it?

Guru 1985, Chamarande, end of the Puja
1985-0629: Guru Puja, Paris, Chamarande, France
First of all, one must understand that there's a combination of a Mother and a guru. Because guru is a very hard task master. He doesn't allow any liberties to be taken. And mother is very kindly. 
Well, you don't have feelings for the Mother, do you?Is it all a lip service, that you listen, goes into your head and you think you have become the surrendered Sahaja Yogis?

1985-1117: Diwali Puja, Tivoli, Rome, Italy
There are some, which can blacken the Face; they are lights no doubt, but can blacken the Face if there are impurities, blacken the Face of the Divine, blacken the Face of your Creator. And that is what, one has to be careful, that we are not blackening the Name of God by our misbehavior. 
Now listen to me very carefully.
Video capture

If there is no light out of the lamp, it does not blacken nor enlighten. But if there is a light it can blacken as well as enlighten. 
It's only the Sahaja Yogis who can blacken or enlighten the Name of God Almighty. Say, for example, if you have a fake man, he doesn't blacken the Name of God because he is himself black, so nobody's bothered about that. If there is a person who is teaching about God or talking about God, about religion and making money out of it, he blackens his own name. He does not blacken the Name of God Almighty. The Name of God, cannot be blackened, It's ever shining.
But it's only a Sahaja Yogi which can form that cloud to cover It. They can only finish the hope of this world. They can only bring the real destruction of this world. They will be held responsible. And they should be punished in time, so that the Name of God should not be ruined. 

For they have been given the right to enter into the Kingdom of God, others are outside. They are the only ones who can abuse the right. Those who are outside this building cannot spoil it. You have the special privilege to enter into this beautiful building. You have got this right because of the great things you have done in previous lives. And if you now want to spoil it, you'd better understand that you will be very severely punished. The light which can enlighten can also burn. But this light will burn all those who try to burn the Kingdom of God.
(*) The Guru puja 1985 remains in Sahaj History because the Sahajis  were attending a talk in the seminar, while only two persons were sent to welcome Shri Mataji at the airport. This offense was to lead Shri Mataji to refuse to accept the puja.

3rd Lesson: EASTER 1984- Forgiveness and shamelessness.

... Thy will be done
So the thought that starts moving in our mind all the time, which creates tensions, is not the thought of the Spirit. 
So, what you should say "Not this thought! Not this thought! - Ya neti, neti, wachaney nigama wachus. Not this thought, not this thought, not this thought!" and see how you relax. 
Now you are relaxing. "Not this thought, not this thought." Just go on refusing accepting any thought. So you go into nirvichara. In that state you feel the Spirit.
Christ has done the greatest work on this, I should say, but we do not understand, because His life was like a micro-thing you see, three years. So we have to open it out a little bit and see what He did. He has given us the greatest weapon, of forgiveness. 

When you forgive a person, what do you do? You accept the situation, to begin with, and secondly you forgive what you think has been done wrong to you. 
But because nothing wrong, nothing can be done wrong to your Spirit, you just forgive because you are the Spirit
And when you forgive, you have found that your tension goes away. So even to your thoughts if you say, "All right, forgive this thought, forgive this thought", because thought is also not to be punished. "Forgive this thought, forgive this thought!"  Forgive everything! Not forget - forgive! because then you will even forget that you are the Spirit! But "Forgive all the thoughts that are coming to me." 
Hand writing by Shri Mataji
Just go on saying this, it is a mantra. What is a mantra? Is that power of the word that expresses Spirit.

So this is a very important thing Christ has given us: the weapon of forgiveness. Everybody has that weapon, everyone can use that weapon. You don't have to put in any effort for it. You don't have to pay for it, it's just you have to say "I forgive." You'll be amazed, your nerves will soothe down, this tension, this pressure of these modern things will be reduced if you go on saying, "I forgive, I forgive them."
Cell phones, obsolete.
For example, you go and see some sort of a...I mean if you happen suddenly to see something very filthy according to the Spirit -maybe it is very exciting according to normal human beings,  but we are 'abnormal' people, and for us, if we find it rather ugly then, the best thing is, to get over, is to say: "I forgive, because they are ignorant, they are blind, they are not yet there where I am. I am the one who is at the source of enjoyment, at the source of peace and while these are not. So I forgive." And you'll be amazed that this forgiveness that Christ gives you works out vichara shaithilya, is the relaxation of the thought.
Now, this opposite movement that you have to move, first of all should start at this point, today, from forgiving others. 
Now what happens when you forgive someone? That means you do not react. 
The power to react to somebody's injuries, insults, is finished, and when that power is finished, you become a powerful person, because nobody can now overpower you, because nobody can kill you, nobody can hurt you, nobody can do anything to you.

But it is not, again I will say, shamelessness. 
You see, people can think that it is shamelessness. So if somebody says to you something harsh and something that is wrong, you do not accept it
But supposing I shout at someone, the bhoots run away. You have seen that many a times I have to shout at people, so bhoots run away because they react, and they just run away, but the Spirit shines through.
So in Sahaja Yoga one has to understand that it is just the central path, is just the balancing thing which is important, is not an extreme of anything. 
2001, Loutraki, Greece
Like when we go to say that "You must forgive everyone" - is not going to that extreme where you have done some wrong, and somebody says to you, you don't take that part of it - it doesn't mean that. [= someone scolds you, you forgive him,  but do not listen to what is said]
Again discretion is the engine of your movement. So you have to see that, if they have said it, something like that:
"Is it? Have I gone against the Spirit?"
Otherwise if I say to you something, you will say: "All right, forgive Mother!
You see the point? "Forgive Her for saying so." No, you cannot say that to me! So then, that is the point you start thinking, "Why Mother said so? What have I done?" Now think on those lines - so you start moving again.

It's a very thin road on which you have to walk. One side is the huge big Gibraltar, rock of Gibraltar of your ego, the another side is a superego. In between is a small discretion path going, on which you have to see both the sides. Whether you are hitting yourself with the rock of Gibraltar, or falling into the valley of superego, you should see that you are using your discretion. 
So, the another thing one has to remember, that whatever you were doing before Realization is to go to extremes. 
Hard rock festival.
For example now, you start some sort of a movement. Say, you say "We'll have classical things." All right, then you go so classical that it becomes mechanical
Now you'll say, "Give up, we'll start anti-culture." So you'll go to another side that you become primitive. Till you have reached the end of it, and learnt a lesson of your life, you do not return.
But in Sahaja Yoga it's a very slippery road on which we are walking, and there you have to see that it's not your ego and it is not your superego. 
So discretion has to be used very much, and the balance, in this movement- which we need not use otherwise, till we are absolutely destroyed we can go ahead with it - before Realization! 
But in Sahaja Yoga as soon as you leave your discretion, you fall this side or that side. Now, those people who are of high quality Sahaja Yogis take to discretion first. How far to go. Now, for that, Mother doesn't have to say, because you are the Spirit. You yourself, you are the Spirit. 
First of all assume your position as the Spirit, and then move with it, that you say discreetly how far to go, how far not to go.
Now that is one of the things, that you have to become thoughtless, by becoming a forgiving person. Most of the thoughts will drop out once you become forgiving. But you cannot forgive some people, like you cannot forgive God, you cannot forgive Mother. Certain things you cannot do, so the maryadas must be seen. Now, in these boundaries if you walk properly, you can go ahead. This is the thing which brings you vichara shaithilya or you can call the mind becomes relaxed.
Nerves, vessels
Then you have to have vishaya shaithilya, means your organs, sense organs always react to things because you are human beings, you see, you are born like that. So whatever happens, you react. For example, you see a beautiful flower, you react to it, some sort of a thought rises with it. Now you must practice to see something without allowing any thought to rise. Then you start sucking through your Spirit the beauty, the glory, the fragrance of a flower.
Coyote trap, USA.
Every flower is a poetry, but when you start thinking about it, then it becomes a dead thing. But you just try to enjoy. Now you are the people who are on this earth to enjoy yourself, not to worry about anything, just enjoy. But if you are still used to "I must do this thing special, I am something special Sahaja Yogi, I am a very highly evolved Sahaja Yogi," then you are finished.
Say we are all going in a boat, enjoy the boat, and also the waves. But somebody says, "I'm a very special one, I'll try to jump down" , then you are back again into the same position. So one has to have an attitude of looking at things. Try to develop this habit of looking at things without thinking about it. Try to develop your mind on those lines, that you do not react.

Now that excitement business, or all this sensationalization that is today's craze, comes from the same, that your sense organs require a kind of sensation because they react. While we must have our sense organs which do not react, because they must only react to the Spirit. So we have to develop a new type of sense organs or a new quality of sense organs, who do not react to outside excitement.
Now if you want Sahaja Yoga to be excitement, how can you do it? I mean just, it is just the opposite of it. So what you have to do is to see that your sense organs - say for example your eyes. They see something, then they react. Your ears, they hear something, they react. Somebody wants to talk, and see the reaction! There are expectations. 

But because Spirit is active itself, it acts itself, you have seen: vibrations don't speak, they act. It has the power to act; you need not react.
If you can reduce the power of reaction, you rise much higher. This is a thing which one has to know when now we are celebrating His resurrection, because it is tapah, it is the penance of Christ. Christ came on this earth for penance. You know in the Gayatri mantra there are seven things they have said it, and at the point of Christ it is tapah, is the penance. So you have to have so-called penance to achieve the joy.
The penance is to pull back your sense organs inside yourself. As Krishna has said that you have to pull back all your limbs of sense organs like a tortoise does. So the excitement that you require for your sense organs is no more needed, because your sense organs now are themselves the source of excitement, in the sense that they neutralize all the excitements.
You go to that point from where it starts. A river starts with a very small little drop, and then it expands, expands, expands, expands. You go to the source, absolutely to the central point. There you'll find hardly even a drop falling out. 
Circle "Bi", old China.
Another good example would be: a wheel has the central point, and the wheel moves all the time but the central point has to be fixed, otherwise the wheel, with the wheel that central point also moves, then the cart cannot move, cart will also start rolling down. So the central point has to be fixed, otherwise the wheel cannot move. So you go to that central point, and the movement is on the central point, where there is no movement, in a way, because there's only ascent. There's no revolution, it doesn't revolve any more, there's just ascent on the central point.

I hope you try to understand, that all the movements come out of ignorance. All the outer movements come because we are not yet on the central point. But that achievement is not difficult because you have jumped on it, onto it, but you again come out onto the periphery, onto the wheel. So how to keep there, and to ascend in that line? Say, for example, there are wheels like this, wheels after wheels, but central point is fixed. Now every time you jump out, now how do you go back to the central point? Is by detachment, by tapah, by penance. Penance is to deny. It doesn't mean asceticism of outside, but asceticism of within.
