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?

Rationally you cannot understand God September 14, 2014


“We take things for granted, everything for granted. That’s the only trouble with human beings, taking everything for granted. If we do not take for granted everything and just in all humility say that, ‘O Lord, we know very little about You, we’d like to know,’ He takes you up and makes you sit in His brain, so that you become aware of the powers of His brain, of His heart, from where He loves you; where He is the ocean of compassion, you become a drop in that ocean.

And you also with your waves, you jump up and down and enjoy that compassion of His, just a drop you are, but you are the ocean. This is what explains what Kabira says. You see, these great people have described him but it becomes absolutely ambiguous for you.

The human rationality cannot explain all these things. So your rationality has to improve onto vibratory awareness. You have to go through that level, minimum of minimum, to understand God. You cannot understand Him at this level. So don’t come out here with ideas that you are going to give something to God, no. You have to take, you cannot give anything to God, but in your humility, if you express yourself, He likes it.”

Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi – 11 September 1978, extract from public programme, Caxton Hall, London, UK.

 

Expectations June 1, 2014


Expectations

You believe that God is omnipresent, omnipotent and all-pervading. In fact, you believe that He is in every atom. As natural corollary of this belief you must also know that God knows what you want or what your need is. If the first proposition is true, then second proposition has to be true. It would follow, therefore, that those who know that God is omnipotent and all-pervading are bound to accept that God is all-knowledgeable and therefore is aware of all your problems.

In spite of this fact, we always go to God with certain expectations. Expectations can be of various types, but are basically self-centered or are pertaining to people or relations you are attached to, and then you pray to God that He should grant you a particular relief, or a job promotion, or some benefit to you or your near ones, etc.

When you go with this frame of mind, then most of the time you are disappointed. Hypothetically speaking, if your expectations are symbolized in A and what you get is, let us say, B; then A minus B is your disappointment. And then you have to attribute this disappointment to someone. The pessimists will attribute it to their bad luck and will always curse themselves for not being worthy of God’s favour.

The optimists will straight away blame God Himself, and they say that this God is not good and that we should shift to some other God. In this way you keep on shifting from God to God, but disappointment is always there. This may even make you anti-God and an atheist, ultimately. Now take a case where you do not go to God with any expectations. Therefore, the expectations are zero, and let us say that you get B as the reward. Therefore, B minus zero is B which is always surplus.

You should also distinguish between your expectations and desires and pure desires. Pure desire is always for the benefit of the other, and therefore you are entitled to carry pure desires to the Divinity. I once remember, I was travelling with Shri Mataji from Sydney to Canberra and it was very hot and the air conditioning of the car was thoroughly inadequate.

Shri Mataji was sweating and I was fanning Her with a newspaper, but I somehow felt that the heat was oppressive and that the weather should give some respite to Her. Reading my mind, She asked me a question as to what I was thinking, to which I told Her frankly that I was unable to see Her suffer because of heat. So She told me that I should make a pure desire and the weather would change.

So I closed my eyes and made a Pure desire that the weather should change. Within five minutes, dark clouds gathered from nowhere and it started raining, and the intensity of heat was thus reduced and Shri Mataji said, “See, if you make a pure desire then it will always be fulfilled.”

Coming back to expectations, I may mention here that once you are connected to your divinity through your Self Realization, you should feel assured that you have been admitted into the Kingdom of God, that you are His subject and therefore He is duty-bound to look after you, irrespective of what you expect of Him. So please do not expect when you are in Sahaja. Only pray to Shri Mataji that She should make you what She wants you to be.

With all my blessings,

No idea of sinning, no idea of hell, no idea of Christ August 23, 2013


“You go anywhere, you will be surprised, how the faithful, simple-hearted people are misused by these churches. They are used for voting, they are used for money, for everything to such an extent that money was made, artificially counterfeited in billions by the church itself.

Such autocracies, such control, such authority they had that whatever they did was, the pope is infallible, whatever he does is alright. No idea of sinning, no idea of hell, no idea of Christ. Which was nothing but purity and innocence.

Christ had taken a hunter and hit all the people who were selling in front of the temple, because God can not be sold. They were not selling God, they were selling only goods, but he said the respect of the temple, talked about the respect of the temple.” –  Shri Mataji, New Delhi, India

Christ came on this Earth to show that you have to become the Spirit August 13, 2013


“Christ has said very clearly that, “You are to be born again.” I mean the whole message of Christ’s life is realization because Judaism talked of the dharma, of the sustenance, of maintenance of the balance in the center. That also like the tree, that was very important. But then Christ came on this Earth to show that you have to become the Spirit. By His resurrection He showed that, and this is the message of Christ.

But Christianity, I don’t know how many people are seeking. They think that by going to church every morning … it’s finished. Or same with the Indians where it was said in every scripture, even about Vedas the first thing is said that, “Through this knowledge if you cannot seek your Spirit, it’s all useless.” – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Public Program, Hampstead Meeting House, London ( UK ), 23 October 1980.

Connect yourself with the Divine May 17, 2013


“Now, Sahaj Yoga means to connect yourself with the Divine. ‘Sah’ means ‘with you’ and ‘Ja’ means ‘born with you’. Yoga within you since birth. The right to get Yoga Sidhhi is Sahaj Yoga. ” – Shri Mataji, 26th Nov 1984
