We should be born again September 25, 2016
Jesus Christ said that “we should be born again.” In our country we refer to this process as “Dwija” or born for the second time. The second birth of any human being is possible only by awakening of Kundalini power. So long as the Kundalini is not awakened, one will not acquire, the second birth, and so long as we do not have rebirth we will not be able to recognise God. You read the Bible after realization. You will be surprised to know that Jesus Christ has told nothing but the importance of Sahaja Yoga. Everything has been explained with minor details. Those who have no insight, misrepresent the matters.
Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, 27.09.1979
“But some of you are so much used to these mundane things and regular things that we personally all of us feel that if it is going to be God, he has to be just like us, there should be an organization, there should be a chairman, there should be a vice-chairman, there has to be a secretary, and all these organizations must be there, and there only if he go, then it is allright, we are safe, we are secure, because we are used to it.
But God’s laws and God’s domain is very different from what we understand. We have never felt his love, we have been always working, all organized things because we were unsecure about something. Every institution is for some kind of an insecurity.
Because we are insecured, we think something is going to fall upon us, something horrible is going to happen, that is how we form a thing. Otherwise our children may be spoilt or our old people may die, or something may happen, we form an organization. This is not believing in God.”

INCARNATIONS September 19, 2015
Different stages of human evolution took place when all these incarnations came on this earth.
Incarnations have to come. If you reason it out you will understand why an incarnation is needed to come on this earth. The unconscious can guide you through symbols which appear in your dreams. There are so many other ways by certain happenings the unconscious, the Divine can guide you; but It is all vague, extremely vague.
The conscious must have a mouth to explain itself. It must have proper body to be able to communicate what it has to say otherwise how are you going to have a rapport with unconscious.
You cannot have any rapport with the divine unless and until you know you are Atman, your Atma. Before that whatever you may try may create a depth in you, a cerenity in you, a character in you but still you cannot have a direct rapport.
You are to be connected. Now somebody has to do this job. That is why many incarnations came on this earth.

Mum? Do you believe in Mum? March 7, 2015
In the womb of a pregnant woman, two babies — a believer and an unbeliever — are having a conversation:
UNBELIEVER: Do you believe in life after birth?
BELIEVER: Yes, of course I do. It is obvious that there is life after birth. Our purpose of being here where we are now is to become strong enough and to get ready for that future life.
U: That’s nonsense! There can be no life after birth! Can you imagine what such life would be like?
B: Well, I don’t know all the details, but I believe that there will be more light and that we will perhaps be able to walk on our feet and to eat with our mouth.
U: Nonsense! It is impossible to walk on one’s feet and eat with one’s mouth! That’s ridiculous! We have a navel-string to feed us. This is what I want to tell you: there can be no life after birth, because our real life — the navel-string — is too short already.
B: Yet, I am sure that life after birth is quite possible. Everything will just be a little bit different. You can imagine this.
U: But, nobody has ever returned from there! Life simply ends with birth. Properly speaking, life is nothing but a long period of suffering in the dark.
B: Oh, no, of course not! I don’t know exactly what our life will be like after birth, but in any case we will meet Mum there, and she will take care of us.
U: Mum? Do you believe in Mum, then? And where do you think she is?
B: She is everywhere around us, we abide in her, we are able to move and live because of her; without her, we simply cannot exist.
U: Nonsense! I have never seen any Mum — thus, it is obvious that she does not exist!
U: No, I cannot agree with you. Sometimes, when everything around us is quiet, you can hear her singing and feel her stroking our world. I am convinced that our real life will only begin after birth. And you?
It is an individual journey towards God February 28, 2015
“It is an individual journey towards God when you meditate. And when you reach there, then you become collective. Before that it’s an absolute individual journey within. It’s absolutely individual journey!… You should be able to see this. In this journey nobody is your relation, nobody is your brother, nobody is your friend. You are absolutely alone; absolutely alone. You have to move alone within yourself. Don’t hate anyone.
Don’t be irresponsible. But in the meditative mood you are alone. No one exists there, you alone, and once you enter into that Ocean then the whole world becomes your family. The whole world is your own manifestation. All the children become your children. And you treat all people with equal understanding. The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside your Spirit, and start seeing through the eyes of the Spirit. There’s such Calm, such Peace, such Bliss within you!
You have to be ready for that journey. That journey is alone in your meditativeness and the more you find something in your meditation, the more you want to go and distribute it to others! That has to, if that does not come into you, then it has not worked out. There is no purity, there’s some sort of a bias.
In that individual pursuit, whatever you find, you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of a person who has been really meditating. The one who is meditative and has not been able to distribute what he has found, is cheating himself and cheating others as well. Because that joy that you receive in your meditation has to be distributed, has to be given, has to be shown! It should flow in your being as a light radiates from every illumined lamp.
We don’t have to take a vow to say this is an enlightened light, in the same way, a saint should not be certified that he is a saint. The depth you achieve within yourself spreads all over, it is such an action and reaction. The more deeper you become the radiation is much more. A simple person, very ordinary person, uneducated person, can be like that. We have, you know, one gentleman called Vardic (sounds like) in Bombay , he’s an old man, he’s so deep, he radiates. People depend on him, he radiates love, so meditative. You don’t have to spend too much time on meditation, but whatever you spend time, whatever you gain is has to be visible outside, how you radiate and how you give it to others.
That’s the quality of the saints you have to be. Unless and until you become deeper we cannot save other Sahaja Yogis and we cannot save those who are not Sahaja Yogis. You have to rise higher and higher to pull the whole curtain up. Those who try to rise higher pull the whole thing upward and they give a pull to everyone who ascend with them. So just try to keep your aim clear cut.” – Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, 21 March 1983
Speaking in tongues February 1, 2015
“We do not know when the disciples of Christ got their realization through the Holy Ghost. They got…. they felt the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost and they started talking in a different language. They didn’t speak in some language like Latin or Greek or anything. They spoke the language of the chakras and they started moving their hands so people thought they were mad…. But you will see now that all the Divine laws can be managed through your fingers if you get your realization, because your fingers become active and emit cool vibrations or cool breeze of the Holy Ghost…. So, there is nothing wrong in that. But those who were not realized people could not understand that and that’s why they called them mad….. That’s not the situation today. Now, please put your hand there on that center…”

Remember Him morning, evening, every time December 22, 2014
“Remember Him morning, evening, every time. Remembering Christ brings down your ego very much. He did everything that was possible that you should not develop your ego. Everything that was possible. He was born as an ordinary carpenter’s son. Lived in the most ordinary conditions. Kept Himself behind the whole scene. He could have been born as Roman Emperor.
He could have been anybody there. But no He was born Himself. You know that He took his birth in a place where even ordinary people do not take their births. But, there also the light was there. Wherever He was born there was light and joy. And this is the thing we have to know, that we have lost the joy because we have forgotten God Almighty.
When we forget Him, that He is love and He is joy, naturally joy is also forgotten. And then we see people are not at all happy. They have affluence, they have money, they have everything, but still they are not happy. All the time they are in such a mess that you don’t know how to talk to them. If you say this word they’ll be angry. If you say that word they’ll be angry.
They are not at all normal human beings. They are sick people. Sick with their ego. It’s a very simple thing is to ask for forgiveness. How many times do we do that? Not even once a day, not even once a month, not even once a year. Even on a Christmas day if we could say, ‘Forgive us Oh Lord for whatever we have done so far.’ It will work out.”
Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi – 18 December 1978, extract from public programme, Caxton Hall, London, UK.
