Shri Mataji's GUIDELINES to ELECTIONS and what to vote for...

1999, March, 21 Birthday Puja, New Delhi
LOVE FOR OTHERS

If you can enjoy love, you won't enjoy anything else but love for other people, and not for yourself. 
On the contrary you will see that your body, your mind, your thoughts, everything are directed towards creating love for others, and not for yourself. The whole attitude changes. Like in the darkness you can't see anything, but even there's a small light, it spreads all over. Nobody tells the light that “You have to spread the light all over,” but it does. In the same way you all are enlightened people, you are all enlightened with love; and the light of this love spreads automatically, spontaneously, sahaj.
FORGETTING THEIR BRANDS
I was also very much enamored the way our Yuva Shakti was dancing and enjoying. I think it's a very great blessing, because these days our young children, our young people are getting astray. They are not so badly off as in other countries, but quite a big trend is going on to spoil them and to make them a, what you’d call a very Westernized, spoiled personality. 
But now I saw so many of these dancing together, forgetting their caste, creed, everything, and enjoying each other's company.
This is something which has to happen in this country, and in every country, that we should all feel oneness and enjoy the oneness with each other.

If we do not enjoy we are like a drop outside the ocean, which can be dried any time. But if you are a part and a parcel of that ocean, then what happens is that every movement of the ocean you carry with you, and you are part and parcel of that ocean absolutely, because you do not have separate identity.
All these things that make a separate identity in our society or in our culture or in our behavior, in personal lives, all should be completely curbed down. 
THEY DON'T KNOW
And this will settle many problems, from family life to national life, to international life. So we should curb down all such feelings of separatedness, that we should have a separate house, separate state, separate nation.
Gradually all nations will become one, I am sure of that; because great times are coming, and so many people at the helm of affairs will take to Sahaja Yoga. 
Once they take to Sahaja Yog, then things will be very much different. Today it is not with them, Sahaja Yoga is not with them. They have no knowledge of our great movement of love, so they want to have separate of everything. 
They don't know tomorrow they will be scorched away with the heat around, or maybe with the rain they’ll be washed away, or maybe that the Mother Earth might absorb them.

So we all should be together, whatever may be the differences. In different families we are born – after all, all cannot be born in one family. But now you belong to Sahaja Yoga family, and this Sahaja Yoga family is one, it doesn't believe in having separate existence or separate speciality. We're all one with each other, and we don't care what sort of differences are outside.

WHAT IS THEIR NEED
I was really very much touched, because now the new year is coming with a new challenge for all of us which we have to accept, that Kali Yuga is over and we have to establish the Satya Yuga; for which all of you from every country should have thinking, how you can do it in your country and in other country
What are the problems in another country? 
Nice, France, 2016 close to the Italian border.
Put your attention outside, -not inside: this way that you should say that I need this, I need that, I need that. We should know what other people need: what is their need, what the people in our society, in our nation, in our world require? 
Better write them down: what do they require? It's better, it will work,  might be! It might be corrected. 
It's very important for Sahaja yogis to sit down and write down what the world needs, and what is to be done.
It will be a nice idea for all of you to really aspire for that kind of homogeneous society that we have here today. And we’ll be -one day- you will be surprised that we will be the ones who will guide and lead the rest of the people with our love, attention and care.
So it's very important time, and at this time we should all think on those lines.
Thank you very much. May God bless you.

Freedom, Plans and Responsibility

Many sahajis say that there is a plan of God, and that, anyway, everything we wish is happening somehow.
Shri Mataji, yes, spoke about a Plan: this was to send Her, as an Avatar, to do one job: connecting Man through the Sahasrara, so that his Free Will could be divine and collective. 
This Task ended in 2011. «His plans are spontaneous»
Now, we are connected, and God, the Paramchaitanya, is anxious to see how to adapt... to OUR PLANS, the plans She asked us to make «systematic». As Shri Mataji constantly taught:
1979: free, responsible, facing  a Spontaneous God.
Navajos riding. Photos by Curtis, 19c
... the Great Father has planned the whole thing in such a beautiful manner and He is going to look after His own creation. No one can destroy it. He is Almighty. 
Only thing is that you may destroy yourself, because 
He has made you free
He has given you freedom. 
He has treated you as a friend. 
Because if you have to be enrolled, you have to be a free person, and you must know how to enjoy the glory of freedom.
In that freedom if you have chosen something wrong then you cannot blame God [for it]. 
Spontaneous... 
But even!- if it is just a mistake, then He will work it out, with thousandfold of His glories and mercies, to see that you are safe. He is going to use all His powers to see that you receive, that you get what is promised. 
That is what Sahaja Yoga is. 
Sahaja means spontaneous. Perhaps we do not understand the full meaning of spontaneous, because spontaneous itself is an abstract word [to be] precise. 
It is just His spontaneous power that works it out. 
He is spontaneity Himself. 
And His powers are spontaneous. 
His plans are spontaneous. 
You can see everywhere how nature spontaneously bring thousands of things which we cannot answer, neither can we understand it, nor can we appreciate it. Like a little flower becoming a frui, and we take it for granted. If there are flowers, all right, take it! They are there. If they are fruits, we eat them. 
In the same way, we have taken for granted everything, and we have taken for granted Sahaja Yoga also. 
It's going to work out, going to be within you, and all of you are going to get it.
1979-0616: HH Shri Mataji at Bala's House, Birmingham, UK
https://soundcloud.com/sahaja-library/1979-0616-talk-at-balas-house?in=sahaja-library/sets/1979-2

1996: You have to plan
On the whole, I was very happy with the other day's program, somehow. Despite, as usual, in New York, our inability to really do good advertising, unsystematic everything! Despite that, we had so many people, and I put the responsibility on them. 
Because that's the thing - it is Shri Krishna's responsibility. And that is what is your responsibility now. You are responsible for America and Canada, South America
You all are responsible, and you people should be such, that people who see you, listen to you, are with you, should know that these are the Gopa and Gopis of Shri Krishna. 
Unless and until that happens, this America is the most difficult place. Sometimes I feel it's not Gokul but Mathura.
(Gokul: Cowherd village of  shri Krishna's happy childhood; Mathura, the capital ruled by his evil Uncle.)
Bogota Ashram, 1994
So, now we have to understand that it's not only that we have vibrations, that we are all right, that you can cure some people
 is the last word - no! 
You have to spread it, you have to go in the public, you have to be collective on this point, and you have to spread Sahaja Yoga. 
With so many Sahaja yogis all over the world we have not progressed much. So now it is : you have to plan what you want to do, how you want to do it, and how you want to spread Sahaja Yoga. It's very important. 
Because you people are good at, say, talking about Sahaja Yoga, singing about Sahaja Yoga; all these things are useless, unless and until you have concrete proof of getting many more people in Sahaja Yoga.
1996-0929: You Must Be Collective and Introspective, Shri Krishna Puja, New Jersey

2002: humanity depends on you
My father himself gave up all his property, gave up his practice, with eleven children in the family! And we [who] were living in palaces, [we] started living in huts, for days together, for years together. But - for the gross freedom we'll do anything- but for the subtler freedom,  the Sahaja Yogis have to do everything that is possible.
So, the first thing is to realize, to be aware, to be in your conscious mind all the time,  that
Shuddy Camps, 1987
you are yogis
you are the ones who are very much higher than the rest of the humanity, that 
the salvation of the whole of humanity depends on you. 
The purpose of creation will be served by you. 
So, first of all, you have to be conscious, in your consciousness, that you are so important, and that's why you were given Realization. 
How can you be living with your conditionings and with your ego?.../… 
2002-0623: Shri Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella
Cabella, 2008.
2008: It's a very responsibility
... 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!

«If you people won't like to work it out,
then the responsibility of destruction
will be on your head…»
«But living things, which are spontaneous, which are sahaj, you cannot say time. In the same way this process of freedom; you have the maximum freedom, so one could not say what time this will happen, that people will be available to receive this subtle knowledge of divine Love. »


Swayamblogger selected some extracts for us to deepen in our sense of  freedom, 'free-will', and choices.

1979-1202: Guru Puja, Dollis Hill, London
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. And this is one point I fail sometimes: I don't know  how to remove your inertia. 
Because, you have not practiced Sahaj Yoga. You have not gone into any practice. You got it very easily cheaply. You do not understand its value. So you just want to have as a side track, you know? 
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 they are not that low type, that I should put freedom on them as a, sort-of, a bar, that they should not use their freedom. 
You're absolutely free. If you want to go to hell, I will give you a chariot, to go direct. But if you want to go to heaven, I'll give you a vimana - an aeroplane, to go there. So it is for you people, to become dynamic, and to have confidence within you. You know every Chakras; you know every rising of the Kundalini you know everything. 
Take it upon yourself! Then a person who takes it upon himself, you see I...... I can be very angry with all of you. Very simple! But no I have to get the job done.

1985-0206: A New Era - Sacrifice- Freedom- Ascent, India tour, Bordi:
Now after that, we are here to get our freedom, to get the freedom for our spirit, to make our spirit free from our greed, lust, from your anger; from our conditionings, from our terrible ego, from the body being enslaved by comfort. I must say Gandhiji had a special charm. I don't know how he managed. He was like touch of Midas - touched anybody, he became transformed, you see. And he was an extremely strict man, very kind to me, to children, but he was an extremely strict man, he would not tolerate any nonsense at all.
Shri Nirmala Devi in her youth, times of 'Freedom Fighters"
Throughout, if you study the way all these people were brought up, not only for freedom of, or independence, but even before that for spiritual life, anywhere, there is one thing very common, is sacrifice. And the consciousness that you are doing something great, consciousness that you are part and parcel of the whole - such a big thing, such a big work, such a noble 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.

"An entire avenue of freedom"
1986-0823: Shri Krishna Puja, Schwarzsee, Switzerland:

So the so-called free will, I'm happy Rustam has told you about it, is nothing but your ego and superego, because you are not in the center. 
In the center you have nothing but freedom, that's all, nothing but freedom, nothing like free will, - freedom, complete freedom. There's nothing like will, or nothing like bhoots, nothing like bondage, it's entire avenue of freedom. Then, this freedom is the knowledge, this freedom is the love, this freedom is the discretion. Then, you say what gives you freedom and others freedom equally. Then, you act which doesn't bound you nor anybody else. Because it is knowledge, it is discretion. 
'Babamama', Shri Mataji's brothern charted accountant,
became 'Belos', a poet and musician
It does not matter what age you are. I've seen some also very old people singing beautifully and enjoying Sahaj Yoga and make me enjoy also. Life is for us to enjoy, nothing else. But, because we are not free people, we can not enjoy. There is no bondage of any evil thought which keeps you down. It is so subtle, but penetrating into every that is gross. 
Fra angelico

1993-0606: Shri Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella
So, angels have no freedom. 
Angels are made like that. They are fixed. They don’t know why they do it. Animals also don’t know why they do certain things. They just do it, because they are bound by nature. They are bound by God Almighty. 
They say Shiva is Pashupati, means he controls all the animals, He’s Pashupati. He controls all the animals, so all the desires from animals come in, but they don’t repent, they don’t have ego, they don’t think that this is wrong, or that is good. They have no karma problem because they have no ego, because they have no freedom.
... So when this Adam and Eve business started, She thought that they will be just like other animals or angels, what’s the use? They must know what they are doing, they must know why they are doing it. They must have the freedom to understand what is the knowledge. 
... /... But living things, which are spontaneous, which are sahaj, you cannot say time. In the same way this process of freedom; you have the maximum freedom, so one could not say what time this will happen, that people will be available to receive this subtle knowledge of divine Love. 
Mucukunda tricked by Shri Krishna (Ranchordas)
kills His ennemy (from the Mahabharata)
Knowledge also could be very dry. We had terrible people in India, who were busy with the reading and with the citation of mantras, this, that, and they became so dry, so dry, they’re just bone structures, they were, just bones left. And so hot-tempered that they looked at anybody, that person would become into ashes. I mean, is this the way you have come on this Earth, to do all the tapasyas, everything, just to make somebody into ashes? But that’s how they thought that they were very great because they looked at somebody, that person becomes, disappears or becomes ashes. Bhasmisat they call it. But there was no idea of benevolence in their heart. So, the first thing that is achieved through this divine Love is your benevolence. Now benevolence itself is also a kind of a very misguided word. Benevolence means whatever is good for your Spirit. Now, as you know the Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty, so when the Spirit in you starts reflecting itself in its full beauty then you become the giver, you are no more a person who has to take anything, you just become the giver. You are so fulfilled.
.../...But some of these things I don’t know that clearly because of one thing. The relationship between you and me is of course very intimate, that you should be in my body, but if you people are not meditating – is very mundane thing I must tell you – Dhyanagamya – if you are not meditating, then I have no relationship with you. You are not my relation. I … you have no right on me. You have no question to be asked, 'why this is happening, why that is happening'. So if you do not meditate – I always say meditate, meditate! – I have nothing to do with you : are no more there for me! It has no connection with me. 
Then you are like all other people. You may be Sahaja yogis, you might have got your Sahaja Yoga degree from your leaders, maybe, I don’t know, and maybe that you are regarded as something very great. But, if you do not do your meditation every day, evening, morning or evening, you will be really not anymore in the realm of Shri Mataji. Because the connection is only through Dhyana, through meditation. 
I have known people who do not do meditation. Then they suffer, their children suffer, then something happens; then they start coming and telling me. But I see clearly that the person is not meditating, I have no relationship with him. He has no right to ask me anything. 
Link
In the beginning of course, the meditation takes some time. But once you will know what is meditation is, how you enjoy my company, how you are one with me, how we can have a rapport with each other. There’s no need to have anything else in between, like writing letters or maybe some sort of a special connection, nothing of the kind!
Only thing that is needed is the meditation. In meditation you grow. In that spiritually you become higher. And when that happens, you start, in a way, I would say that when you reach a state of that, I should say, maturity in Sahaja Yoga, then you don’t want to give up your meditation. 
Because that time, you are absolutely one with me. That doesn’t mean for three hours, four hours you should do meditation but it is how much intensely you are with me is important; now it is not how much time you are with me. Then I’m responsible for you, for your children, for everyone. I am responsible for your ascent, for your protection, to save you from all your negativity.
So it’s not like a father who will directly punish you, it’s not that, but it’s just “All right, you are not my relation, I am out.” That’s the only thing that can happen. If you are not meditating, all right, I cannot force you, I have nothing to do with you. You may have other relationship, outside, outward. But this inner relationship, by which you get your benevolence, you cannot have without meditation. I’ve been telling all of you, please meditate, please meditate every day. But I think people are also not understanding the importance of what I am saying, because they tell me, “Mother, we don’t meditate.”
Freedom means freedom to ego, not to wisdom:
« ...in this time, you must take (=people) as much as you can. Otherwise, you will be thrown out of this evolutionary process
I told about it:  in 1979, that till 1979, this work has to be done, 
and by the year 1999.
That time is not far away,  
Satya Yuga (the era of truth) will get fully matured. 
Now, it depends on your wisdom, otherwise Kali Yuga will also flourish because of you only.
If you people won't like to work it out 
then the responsibility of destruction 
will be on your head…»

After GREGOIRE, Legacy and Questions

When mourning the death of a man, we do not bury just what he was in the last moments, or his last years. 
We pay tribute to a life-time. 
The totality of a man.
Hurst Green house
Gregoire was supposed to become a great and successful diplomat, representing a country that plays an important role in international peace negotiations. Instead he travelled to Hurst Green to meet Shri Mataji, and, without him knowing, unwillingly, She change his destiny into becoming our "elder brother", that was in 1975.


Shri Mataji advised him to resign this career. Then after, he worked with the UN focusing on different issues, especially thise related to Water. This allowed him to travel all over the world, frre fo any  obligation towards a specific country or  government. His travels exposed him to representatives of Dictators, tropical diseases, permanent jetlag and many deserts. His job was a planet-dimensional one.  

But his travels also allowed him to meet, interact with and teach Sahaja Yogis in many different countries, thus becoming a real "big brother" for many of us, almost everywhere.

France, 1985.
'Inauguration of  l'Avènement'
Upon Shri Mataji's request, he was the first to fulfill Her wish, writing a book about Sahaja Yoga and Her incarnation. The Advent remains today the most read, the most precise and one of the most useful tools to spread and deepen Sahaj knowledge.

The French yogis in particular are deeply indebted to him for rewriting 'L'avènement'.  That story started after a Guru Puja evening programme in 1983, when he asked me about a potential French edition of the book. It was first published in 1985. Many seekers got their Self Realization from finding this book on the shelves of French bookshops. Seekers who read the book overnight, so many of them far from Sahaj centres, could start a new life. FRANCE has been specially cared for by Gregoire.  
Playing with a Yuva,
Colombia Ashram
One should not forget the impact of L'Avènement  in Africa, bringing in its first yogis (by mail - means: paper letters), in Ivory Coast or Congo. The same effect was produced by the Spanish translation in Colombia, to the Hispanic world. Of course other translations followed everywhere.
Hence, while speaking of Gregoire, we are speaking of a work, a presence, a life expanded to the whole planet.


No wonder then, if 150 Sahajis gathered at his funeral. Along with the Swiss community, some brothers came from Germany and Austria, of course, from Belgium, 3 from France, Italy, Netherlands, but some took a fast plane from USA, Montreal and even Moscow. Many tributes were read about his loving character, shared as much with the first ashramites in London, as with his own family, be it anywhere else, with white-haired sahaj  - pioneers of yore-, or with contemporary yuvas. All of them described the Love he was spreading, his constant care and attention to the spiritual growth of his fellow yogis and his own permanent quest for purity.

After the demise of our beloved Shri Mataji, and now the - as we say in France - 'disappearance' of Gregoire, we Sahajis have to face our heritage, and our destiny. What about our divine way of life?
What about our meditation, our depth?
What about our collectivity? 

Now that the memorial ceremony is over and that the flowers and incense have been offered, lets consider Gregoire's life as a whole, of whom we are the heirs, and ask  to ourselves: 
Are we able to take some inspiration from such a life, dedicated  to the Spirit, and to sharing the Self-realization with the whole wide world?

PUJAS: Yes, we can!

NO BORDERS...

This week end, European Sahajis gathered, near Frankfurt for the celebration of our Mother's Diwali Puja, which was held on the sunday late afternoon, oct, 30th...
Located 120 km from the Basel/Mulhouse/Frankfurt Euro-airport (Uf!), the travel was close to a Pilgrimage. Though, crossing borders without barriers, without police, without soldiers, is a luxury that we, Europeans, wish all our brothers and sisters, in Ukraine and Russia, in India an Pakistan, and everywhere else, will enjoy some day in the nearest future! Sahajis have no religious nor national identification. To witness that in the real life is one of the rare blessings of modern times.

PROTOCOLS OF THE HEART

The protocol of the puja was established by  a group composed of the "pujaris" of the different hosting countries, France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany.  Actually, each country counts quite a number of knowledgeable Sahajis, and each part selected some representatives for the occasion.
Everything went on very well, smoothly. 
The curtain opened on the stage, were Mother's photograph was already installed, to which an  aarti and garland were offered, while we were singing the welcoming Bhadjan, Agatha swagatha... 
We listened to a long talk, and after the puja lasted for 3 hours. The vibrations were very strong and gentle. A real joy sprout in everyone's heart, and was so strong that during the dinner, after the fireworks, one could hear happy conversations and spontaneous laughters in the dining room.
One has to understand something that ritualistic people do not catch. The relation with Shri Mataji-Adi Shakti does not rely on the gestures, objects, and precision of the offerings. It relies mainly on the opening of the heart, and meditation state of the audience - I should say: of the Pilgrims.

1990-1020 Diwali Puja, Sotto, Italy, end of the talk:
«...Sahaja Yoga is progressing very fast and you people have to decide that now your Mahalakshmi tattwa has to give its fruits. Let's see! I was happy to see you so happy, joyous. I wish you could give this joy to each other. That gives me the greatest pleasure. 
Kamadhenu, First incarnation of MahaLakshmi, with Shri Dattatreya

Of course now there aren't much fights and nothing's going on but there are small, small things where I find people have funny feelings about each other. So forget about it!
You are Sahaja yogis. After all, what is going to happen? Everybody has to die, in any case. 
But at least you led a life of spirituality, of eternity. See, look at them(= the lights). They all know they have to die but, "Let's burn as much as we can!" 
Perseid shooting stars

We have the light. Everybody doesn't have the light. "Let's burn!" This is to be understood and, then, you'll enjoy. Even the shortest life, which is like a shooting star, is worth something, than a boring life of a dead person.
So for this, the protocol has to be understood. 
It's very important to understand protocol and the protocol is this: that you are not to question me. You are not to question me, you are not to doubt me. This is very important if you have to keep your Sahasrara open. If you have any doubts, then know that you are not yet there. Please keep your Sahasrara open!
Without your Sahasrara being open, you cannot do anything.
Surrender means nothing but keep your Sahasrara open. This is the way you are going to grow. 
What are you going to surrender to Me? I can create the whole world like I create worlds after worlds. What are you going to give me, but just surrender? 
You have to give nothing to Mother, you have to be one with Her, you have to be lost in Her, is to enjoy Her, to know Her
That is the day when there will be a perfect Diwali in this whole world. I'll see my children becoming great lights of knowledge, truth, peace and joy. 
That is the day I'm going to feel that we have done the job all right. And let's have that real Diwali! And I'm sure is going to be very soon. Why not compete with other countries in this like Russia, like Bulgaria instead of competing in nonsense. 
Let's compete. How many Sahaja Yogis we have got? What have we got to be given for Sahaja Yoga? All this will create such a beautiful personality of self-respect, because unless and until you have self knowledge, you cannot have respect for it. But now you have self knowledge so the whole thing is going to change. 
Today I wanted to speak to you more than the puja. Is a short puja, is not a very big puja for Lakshmi because is already within you.
But in this short puja I wanted to speak to you that now you must respect the Mahalakshmi tattwa.

"Whatever you want to do, will be done"... - ADVAITA

Swayamblogger says:
Most of the problems we have in Sahaj come from that conception that Mother -the Divine- wants something, that we -humans- have to discover. God would love ceremonies, services, praises, rites,but  would hate that committee or that trust, etc. 
'He' or 'She' would communicate through envelopes, through 'super -yogis' having 'perfect vibrations, (this boasting expression has been heard by many)
This is DUALISM
and this is all wrong.Here are the proofs.

ADVAITA: Thy Will be Done

1/ This is the breeze of the Holy Ghost. This is the Chaitanya Lahari described by Shankaryacharya. Shankaryacharya preached Advaita, means we are like small drops separated from the ocean. And when we go back to the ocean we become the ocean. The powers of the ocean come into us.
This is the advaita of Shankara. That means you become powerful as the ocean is.

2/ One day he asked Me, Djamel, numerical, "To what extent it goes, to what dimension?" and when I told him, he said, "It is incalculable." I said, "It is infinite." You cannot calculate.
How can you understand with this brain? … It would be like a madman going to the seashore to have a nice bath, starts counting the small little pebbles and the grains of the sand. Get in, enjoy - you become that.
This is advaita - were you become one - all religions teach advaita.
Advaita means were there is not the other: Ananya, you become one with that.
With the whole ocean you become one. A drop becomes the ocean, the all of the powers of the ocean are there for the drop. …/…The myth has to be broken.

3/ A South Indian told Shri Mataji: "I don't believe in Shankara’s Advaita, I believe in Dvaita, I want to remain myself, I do not want to get united with God, I want to remain myself. Why should? -"
I said "Which part of you that doesn't want to become with God?”
He said "Not my ego,"
I said, "How are you sure?"
You see, this is the trick of the trade !That's how they are going to continue. That’s why they don't want to be one with God. Because if they have to be one with God, then these in-between religions will disappear, isn’t it? (laughter) The agency will be losing its powers!

4/ So now you understand from there that, on this Sahastrara day, you have to also demand. I want you to demand and ask, because I have no desire. And you, just go ahead! You have all the rights to demand from Me. And ask for the biggest and the highest and the most fantastic and the most dynamic that you want to do. Put up your minds and heads together, and ask for something big. This is a very great day today; go home, think about it. Collectively also you decide I’ll go now. So then you decide and put a demand and it could be done! Now, thy will be done, not Mine.

5/ …not worry too much about your money and your families and other mundane things, just don't worry about anything, you don't have to worry, just give it a bandhan. If it doesn't work out, doesn't work out, finished. What's that wrong? If it works out, well and good. 
Not that your desire is important, but, "Thy will be done". First you say, "Thy will be done" that it is so surprising that your wills change, your desires change and whatever you say, is done.
But when this also comes up, people develop an ego; so be careful. It's all done by the Shakti and not by you, by your Atma and not by you. You have to be the Atma and once you become the Atma, you become into Akarma where you don't know that you are doing it, it just works out. You don't feel, you are not aware.

6/ Respecting your thoughts, respecting your inspirations, your dreams, your aspirations, your visions, write them down. Whatever thought you get write it down. Whatever inspiration you get, write it down. Whatever visions you think you should have for yourself, write it down, all that you think that should be the future, write it down. 
And pray for it. 
The greatest quality on this one, is when you respect yourself, when you respect yourself, you are respected, by whom? By the Gods, by the divine force, by all the angels. And whatever you want to do, will be done, then it comes. Thy will be done! But that will has to come out of respect for yourself. If it is coming out of some other considerations.For example now in Bombay, they want to have an ashram. People have all funny ideas about ashram.


7/ A woman: Will we see a time when most of the world will have their Realization?
Shri Mataji: Hope so. Hope so. I would say that's My dream. I wish, I wish that happens.

I'm actually desireless. But your desires work. If you desire, is the other way round. It's not "Thy will be done," but it's "Thy will be done." If you desire, it will happen, it will happen.

Ray Harris: But You know, Mother, Jewish Rabbis decide that it's blasphemy today that you are trying to achieve union with God.
Shri Mataji: Who says blasphemy?
Ray Harris: Jewish, a Jewish rabbi, Mother.
Shri Mataji: Is it?
Ray Harris: And it said in the paper that we should only do His commandments, to become part of God is blasphemy.
Shri Mataji: Aah, this is...
Ray Harris: That's what he said, Mother. So we never aspire to achieve part of God that..
Shri Mataji: Because then his salary will go away.
Ray Harris: Because it's a silly eastern religion.
Shri Mataji: Actually this is what happened with somebody who had come there, he says that, "I don't believe in Shankara." He's a South Indian he said, "I don't believe in Shankara, because he believes in Advaita," - that is "Becoming one," you see. Advaita - ‘Dvaita’ is two, ‘Adwaita’ means "not two". "I don't believe in Shankara’s Advaita, I believe in Dvaita, I want to remain myself, I do not want to get united with God, I want to remain myself. Why should -" I said "Which part of you that doesn't want to become with God?”, He said "Not my ego," I said, "How are you sure?"
You see, this is the trick of the trade is. That's how they are going to continue. That’s why they don't want to be one with God. Because if they have to be one with God, then these in-between religions will disappear, isn’t it. (laughter) The agency will be losing its powers!

But you when you are realized you start feeling cool from here. You'll be amazed. Even from the light you get the cool. You see, I put My hand here. There's no breeze over here. They have started moving. There's no breeze. Suddenly when I put My hand they start moving. You start feeling the breeze going through you. This is the breeze of the Holy Ghost. This is the Chaitanya Lahari described by Shankaryacharya. Shankaryacharya preached advaita, means we are like small drops separated from the ocean. And when we go back to the ocean we become the ocean. The powers of the ocean come into us. This is the advaita of Shankara. That means you become powerful as the ocean is.

And this is what happens that a small cell which is now acting according to the dictates of the brain, becomes aware of the brain and can communicate with the brain. Or we can say a small cell becomes aware of the whole. You become aware of the powers of Almighty. Not only aware but you know how to handle it, you know how to make it flow through you. You know that there are problems in your being but because of that is not flowing properly. You know how to correct it in yourself and you know how to correct it in other people. This is the Samadhi, is the enlightened awareness.
This is what should happen to you by which your powers start manifesting and giving light to others.

Then, what happens? Then we are ruled by our heart's indication than by our brain. How? Because the heart has the spirit, which emits vibrations, is not the brain. And you depend on your vibratory awareness after Realization. The more you depend on your vibratory awareness, the more you use your heart, your spirit, not your brain. The more you use your brain again you go down because it is taken over now by the spirit. For example after Realization when you start thinking about it, I mean people can think of anything I mean I can tell you I've had such experiences that they would say why Mataji is wearing a sari like this - even to this extent you see they can go. But if you can just leave your heart to work it out and don't think because you are in thoughtless awareness after Realization - if you try to maintain that state - pay attention to your heart and let your spirit emit itself. So that it clears out completely the confusion of the brain and everything. Then you'll be amazed that you cannot lose your vibrations. You cannot lose your Realization. The simplest way is, I mean we have found out this, that after Realization if you go for seven days' treatment with soaking feet before My photograph it works out. But immediately when I say "My photograph" finished - the ego comes up - "why Her photograph?" First thing comes up - "Who is She?" I may be nothing, all right I agree - I'm nothing - but I have raised your Kundalini. I have given you Realization. I must be something after all. So why worry? I'm not taking away anything from you. Then you start establishing your auspiciousness, the sense of auspiciousness. Once you have established it, then you do not lose it very easily. You don't like then inauspicious things - normally - if there is somebody inauspicious you say, "Mother, no, we can't do anything about this gentleman", all right. Afterwards when you become very strong you don't mind working on anyone whatsoever, but gradually you have to grow up to it - I understand that, but I can't understand people using their rationality to understand Sahaja Yoga. How can you understand this great power with your limited rationality? I can explain to an ant about your politics but I cannot tell you how this divine power works. One day he asked Me, Jamel numerical, "To what extent it goes, to what dimension?" and when I told him he said, "It is incalculable." I said, "It is infinite." You cannot calculate. If you put two mirrors facing each other and put some object in between, you cannot calculate how many reflections you'll get. Even that you see but you cannot calculate. But here I am talking about something that does that, which creates this. You cannot calculate all the molecules and the atoms of one element. But I am talking about Somebody who has created them and who in every molecule pulsates. How can you understand with this brain? You can only become one with it and enjoy yourself, why worry? Why do you want to count the molecules? Why this madness? It would be like a madman going to the seashore to have a nice bath, starts counting the small little pebbles and the grains of the sand. Get in, enjoy - you become that. This is advaita - were you become one - all religions teach advaita. Advaita means were there is not the other, Ananya, you become one with that. With the whole ocean you become one. A drop becomes the ocean, the all the powers of the ocean are there for the drop. That's what it is. But there are some people, who say, "We believe in dwaita, no, why we don't want to get lost." And you are not lost, you become the whole, but they want to keep their small limitations, you see. Now what is that small limitation they want to keep? It's called as Mr. E G O, which is a myth, which is a myth. It's such a big myth, this ego, because what do you do you human beings? Let's see now. What do you do? You make a chair, all right, see people are even proud if they can make a chair these days because nobody can use their hands these days you know that. Everything is done by machines. I don't know they cannot create human beings otherwise they may try that also. So what do you do? You create something dead out of dead. Everything is dead, whatever you have created is dead. Have you done any living work? So one lady got very angry with Me - she said, "Yes, we have created a tube baby." I said, "You have not created. It was all there - the life was there you have just brought it together and it worked out that way - it's nothing. It's just like egg being (what do you say that?) egg, they put it in the incubator. It is that, simple thing. You have done nothing you have put life into that. Have you? Let us confess it now. We cannot convert even one flower, transform one flower into a fruit. Let us admit it. What is this ego, then? I do this and I do this, I would like that and I would have this and I, I, I. Who is this Mr. I who cannot do one living thing? Just ask yourself - very simple question. So you reach a conclusion- it's a myth- you do not do anything. As many times I've told you that some people going by train put all their luggage on their heads, so they say, "Why are you carrying so much luggage on your head?" They said, "Because they want to reduce the weight of the train." "This will go on like that on your head." "I do it, I do it, I do it," but by brainwashing you I cannot reduce it, how? The myth has to be broken.

The myth breaks when Kundalini rises. Then how you talk is a very different language, it is not coming, it is not going, it is it. It becomes a third person. Then your power which is flowing through your hands, you see that going through your hands, which you are maneuvering, you don't say, "I am giving you Realization", you don't say. You just say it is going, it is rising, it is not coming, even if it is your son you'll say, "I cannot give", now what to do? Like a lady came with Me to America once and she was very anxious that I must give Realization to her son and all that. So I told her, "Look at this. Now you have come all the way, I know, for this purpose but now if the Kundalini doesn't rise, should you want Me to say that he is realized?" "No, no, no, Mataji, I know it doesn't rise." Then I said, "You give him a Realization" "I cannot give him." "All right, you try then." "But it doesn't rise." Then I said, "What to do? If the Kundalini is not coming up, what can we do about it?" So, the Kundalini has to come spontaneously, it's a living process but after Realization you start doing living things. You can raise the Kundalini

And really it happened, that I could just open out the Sahastrara, I said "That’s it!" you see. You see, because as you must’ve heard that Goddess has no, She’s nishprayojana, She’s purposeless, She has no purpose at all. But if the purpose comes in Her way then She may do something. But She doesn’t have Her own purpose, She’s absolutely purposeless, useless! Without any desire. Imagine! Without any attributes also. What a thing and a half you see, whatever it is! Such a personality when It is faced with a demand like that, comes up with it’s form.

So now you understand from there that, on this Sahastrara day, you have to also demand. I want you to demand and ask, because I have no desire. And you just go ahead! You have all the rights to demand from Me. And ask for the biggest and the highest and the most fantastic and the most dynamic that you want to do. Put up your minds and heads together, and ask for something big. This is a very great day today; go home, think about it. Collectively also you decide I’ll go now. So then you decide and put a demand and it could be done! Now, thy will be done, not Mine.

But to a wise man, he discreetly uses it for a proper purpose. So, one has to understand, Sahaja Yoga is known by the discretion person has.

Now, what happens actually that you get stuck with one thing, that is your Atma and the whole your being floats like a [Patangas ?] does, or ah a kite that floats, goes all over the places, everything, but you are stuck to only one thing, that is your Spirit. And, if you could really do it, genuinely and honestly, not worry too much about your money and your families and other mundane things, just don't worry about anything, you don't have to worry, just give it a bandhan. If it doesn't work out, doesn't work out, finished. What's that wrong? If it works out, well and good. Not that your desire is important, but, "Thy will be done". First you say, "Thy will be done" that it is so surprising that your wills change, your desires change and whatever you say, is done. But when this also comes up, people develop an ego; so be careful. It's all done by the Shakti and not by you, by your Atma and not by you. You have to be the Atma and once you become the Atma, you become into Akarma where you don't know that you are doing it, it just works out. You don't feel, you are not aware.

I wish, after all these lectures, most of your Chakras must have been opened. But this is all My work. You have to also do some homework. And, you have to also work and see for yourself. Be alert. Try to face yourself in the mirror and see for yourself how far honest you have become.

Immediately if you read a book it comes on to the point and you see oh! It is not good but is this what truth is? Immediately you start studying the books you know which is the truth and which is not the truth because you don't read nonsense. Because you know its all falsehood all story telling you do not want to read something nonsensical. So you just understand the sense and the nonsense of it. So it works out. And that's how when you start respecting yourself. Respecting your thoughts, respecting your inspirations, your dreams, your aspirations, your visions. Write them down. Whatever thought you get write it down. Whatever inspiration you get, write it down. Whatever visions you think you should have for yourself, write it down, all that you think that should be the future, write it down. And pray for it. The greatest quality on this one is when you respect yourself when you respect yourself, you are respected, by whom? By the Gods, by the divine force, by all the angels. And whatever you want to do will be done, then it comes. Thy will be done! But that will has to come out of respect for yourself. If it is coming out of some other considerations.

... Is there any other question? Now let's see.
Yogi: One in the back.
Woman: Will we see a time when most of the world will have their Realization?
Shri Mataji: Hope so. Hope so. I would say that's My dream. I wish, I wish that happens.
I'm actually desireless. But your desires work. If you desire, is the other way round. It's not "Thy will be done," but it's "Thy will be done." If you desire, it will happen, it will happen.
