Truth is one August 22, 2017
“Some people thought that Christianity would work out. Others thought that Islam might work out. Some thought it was Buddhism that is going to help us and some thought it is some other religion will help us, like Jainism or Zen. Now, if you really see all these human endeavors from a detached mind you will find that there is something missing in them. There are psychologists who said that it is the sex energy which is important and we should not be conditioned. So they used their Ego to express themselves without any conditioning. And the others who believed that it is the will power that is important and you must develop your will power.But one should know that truth cannot be two. It has to be absolute. And the point at which we are today, we are absolutely diversified. So, we developed a new, another system by which we say we should be tolerant of everyone. “We must tolerate everything; there should be coexistence of everyone”. But it is a very vicarious imbalance. Any day it may blow off. Every moment there’s a danger that the whole thing might blow off; this tolerance might just topple down from this side to that side.
India is the greatest democracy – I have seen the democracy part of it. I have seen all the democracies of the world because I had a chance to visit most of them. I have seen all – most of the totalitarian governments, also the communist regimes all over the world. And I feel all of them have missed the point. In none of these organizations, people are happy. We can see clearly that there is a kind of a dearth everyone feels. If somebody thinks that fire is too much to burn the body you jump in the frying pan – it’s just the same. So this so-called tolerance also has no basis. On the contrary, in this tolerance we might even tolerate horrible people who are demonic. So the modern times, as we see, are full of confusion. No one knows who is right, who is wrong. It is all a relative world we live in. Everyone thinks that they are the best, and at the most they can tolerate each other. If it is Truth, it is not to be tolerated; it is to be enjoyed.[…]
We cannot establish any religion out of fear. Religion is within ourselves. It is to be awakened; it is the sustenance within us. If it is awakened we do not do anything that is wrong. In darkness if we are – we may bang at each other; we may do anything. But in the Light we know relatively how we stand to each other and there is no need to have toleration. Only the blind have to talk of toleration because they have to save themselves and save others, because they are blind.”

Absolute Truth August 12, 2017
“We have become human beings, up to a stage and now, we have to enter into the Kingdom of God, where you know the Absolute Truth, everybody knows the same truth, if God is one then why should there be so many truths, somebody says “Capitalism is good”, somebody says “Socialism is good”, somebody says “Communism is good”, I mean all kinds of things, and they fight, on that point. But nobody knows the Absolute Truth. And once you know the Absolute Truth, then there is no discussion, no argument, no fights.”
Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, Public Program at National Institute of Health, Washington, D.C. (USA), 14 October 1993
“So the thinking process minimizes and you start witnessing.
The higher state than that of attention is that you jump into Nirvikalpa Samadhi, into the state of Doubtless Awareness. Now it is not doubtlessness because you’ve argued it out or anything.
But is a state where you’re doubtless about things! I mean the way you speak, the way you behave, the way your attention is, you can make it out that “I’m doubtlessly there.” The discrimination becomes so sharp that you can just say,
“This is so and so and so,” there’s no fanaticism about it. As I told you this morning that if a blind man cross over something and says, “Oh there’s a snake here,” and he believes it’s a snake, he believes that it’s a snake, that’s fanaticism. Because he has no eyes to see and he believes it’s a snake, he says, “Oh, there is a snake here, I BELIEVE!”
But a person who has eyes sees, “No it’s a rope, it’s just a rope.” And he says, “No, it’s not (a snake), it’s a rope.” But he has eyes and when he says with his eyes, which can see that, that it’s a rope, he means it, the truth – then he’s not a fanatic. But he’s standing on the Truth. This subtle difference people don’t understand. Fanaticism comes through blindness and the truth comes through Realization. And at any cost you’ll not give up the truth, any cost!”

Question: How do you become your Spirit? July 12, 2017
“Question: How do you become your Spirit?
Shri Mataji: That’s a very good question. That’s the question is – I’m saying it is a spontaneous happening and that within us is placed, if you see here in the triangular bone, is the power of Holy Ghost within us, which we call in Sanskit language as Kundalini. In Koran it is called as Assas. In every scripture it is described. And this Kundalini has to rise, this power which is the desire power, which is the pure desire power, because all other desires are not pure. If they were pure, then you would have been satisfied. But you’re not satisfied.
So this pure desire is the desire to become one with the Spirit. And this is within you, this force is within you dormantly placed in the triangular bone called as sacrum. That means the Greeks also knew the word sacrum means “sacred.” And this power has to rise within you, and there are subtle centers above it, six centers above and one center below through which it pierces and you feel the Holy Ghost, which is described by Christ and you feel the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost coming out of your fontanel bone area which is the real baptism. And as a result of that you start feeling your Spirit in your consciousness, means in your central nervous system. You, yourself, feel it.
That’s how you become the Spirit. That’s the only way it is sprouted. It’s a living process like if you want to sprout a seed, you have to embed it into this Mother Earth and spontaneously with the power what Mother Earth has, it sprouts. In the same way it happens, and that’s how I have to work it out. But later on when you get it and you become established, you can do it yourself to others. Like one enlightened light can enlighten another light. But the first light has to be enlightened.”

She is the Power, She is the Shakti. July 2, 2017
“You see, I’m so happy that in Italy people have so much respect for their mother and also for Madonna. It’s rather surprising why they did not describe about Christ’s Mother in the Bible. The last words spoken of Christ where He says: “Behold the Mother.” In all other scriptures of the world, this Primordial Mother is discussed, and everybody has talked about that that She is the Power, She is the Shakti.“

Sarvikalpa Samadhi June 11, 2017
“Worshipping any vigraha (murti), any statue of self-created vibrations of Mother Earth, people had big problems. They had to first of all do a meditation which was called as Sarvikalpa Samadhi, that means in that state you have to concentrate on such a statue, and then you go on looking at that statue, and try to raise your Kundalini.
And Kundalini used to come up to Agnya, but the jumping beyond the Sahasrara was an impossible task because one has to go from form to formless, and it was difficult to get out of form, to formless, and even to concentrate on abstract or formless was another impossible task, as Muslims did or many others tried to do.
Under these circumstances it was necessary that the formless had to take a form so that there were no more complications. As soon as you concentrated on the form, you became formless. (Like if you have ice before you, as soon as you start touching the ice, it melts away and you start feeling the cool, so the problem is very easily solved now.) “
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Le Raincy (France), 18 June 1983
