Indigenous peoples of Panama show Kundalini July 13, 2016


After my visit to Panama I realized that native people of Panama show kundalini in their molas.

Looks like they have knowledge about this Primordial energy.

“And this pure desire is within you as Kundalini. She is the reflection of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the power ­- is the Primordial Mother – of God Almighty; is the pure desire of God Almighty, and this power is the Primordial Mother. In Greek they call her Athena, and in India she is called the Adi Shakti. So this power rises and connects you to the mains as well as it connects you to the Spirit. The Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty, and the Holy Ghost is the reflection of the Primordial Mother. So the Primordial Father is God Almighty and the Primordial Mother is the Holy Ghost. “

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…”

You cannot believe that it has any relationship with you September 25, 2013


“You can believe in God, you can believe in Holy Ghost, you can believe in Christ but you cannot believe that it has any relationship with you, that you could be that great, that you could get your realization. So just feel it and enjoy it. First of all, don’t think, that’s why I say, “Don’t think.” Because as soon as you start thinking, Mr. Thomas in you will get up and say that “Hello, this cannot be Self-realization.” Mr. Thomas was great, you see. Christ had all the disciples and I find all those types around, permutations and combinations and somehow Judas also, but they’re rarely to be found.

But there are, no doubt and some are Thomas’s, and these Thomas’ are described as murmuring souls by Christ Himself. He said, “These are murmuring souls,” and they murmur and one murmuring souls comes to you, another murmuring soul in you joins hands and you start all murmuring together, start thinking. Now at that time what have you to do on rational grounds is very simple. What have I done so far? I’ve done everything, did I get cool breeze?

Did I get my self realization? Did I feel my own powers? Have I been able to feel myself and others? Because you see, your still not fully realized, you may not be able to feel the vibrations of another person, neither you will be able to feel your own vibrations. But there are so many people here who are realized and they can feel yours, and they can verify.” – Shri Mataji,   Sydney ( Australia ), 29 March 1981

 

The Search For The Divine Mother (by Gwenaël Verez) May 26, 2011


Many traditions attach great importance to the feminine dimension of the Divine. It is She who is said to give liberation, spiritual rebirth, that is to say Union with the Self. The most significant example is the knowledge of the Kundalini in India.

 

Dharma December 27, 2010


“This is how I describe Dharma in short. Dharma is the sustenance of all things that are born or created. It is super nature that gives valences to atoms in an element. It is Dharma that is expressed as the quality of these elements. For instance, gold has a quality that it is untarnishable. The human beings are like perfected instruments, like computers. Of course, if their Dharma is in balance, they are the best receptors. You can understand that the divine awareness is like the main electrical current which starts the computer (Self-realization). If the Dharma in the instrument is lacking, self-realization does not give full results. It becomes like a second hand car. Dharma is the fulcrum and the one who is in Dharma never gets into imbalance. So the attention has to be on “ Dharma”, the point where the gravity of sin does not act.

The information of Dharma comes from the Unconscious but the movement from the fulcrum can take the human attention so much in one dimension or so much like a sea saw that ultimately the beam of life tilts towards one side, either towards hell or towards destruction. Because, if the extreme movements are like a sea saw, the delicate flower of human awareness becomes confused and people suffer from all kind of diseases.

So what must we do?

The human beings have to come to the state of Gautama who became the Buddha. He searched in all earnestness and honesty. He gave up first all fake worldly preoccupations. This is not required but when he gave up all hopes of searching, (the occupation of the mind), he accepted his defeat. He felt tired and fell at the feet of the Holy Ghost.

Buddha had dharma. His body was clean, his mind, the attention, did not find any joy in the worldly greed or desire. His cup was ready and it emptied when he was tired and surrendered and that was the moment: like torrential rain, the Shakti filled His cup and made him the Shakta, the Enlightened One. So, when you are talking of virtue, you are warning them to keep the cup intact and clean.

Sahaja yoga is the proof of all the scriptures that are challenged. But I had to come to explain, to give realization and to tell you the “know how”.”

The Powers of Adi Shakti and the Three Gunas December 19, 2010


Adi Shakti is the Power of Almighty God which is a single and integrated power. Although She exists as a complete and all-pervading power, She manifests through three separate powers. It is not possible however to completely separate the three powers of Adi Shakti from each other, because these powers belong to one personality, and are expressions of Her three moods (Gunas).

Additionally, it is a very difficult task to explain the manifestation of Her power which is far above human comprehension. Human beings have very limited weapons of perception (Ayudha) to understand Her. This can be explained by the analogy of a flute where the air passing through the instrument is a single current only, yet is capable of forming seven notes. In the same way, the one power of Adi Shakti is manifested in three forms while Her fourth integrated form is the source of the three powers. The power of Adi Shakti, the integrated complete form, is Pranava (Ruh, Anahalk, Rukh, Omkara or Holy Ghost). From this one can understand how OM (Pranava) is comprised of three separate forms ‘Aa’, ‘Oo’ and ‘Ma’.

These powers are:

1)      The material power

2)      The existence power

3)      The sustenance power

 

The Waters of Life September 17, 2010


Jesus hints at the Holy Ghost’s gender when he refers to his `mother’ in heaven, and compares her in the Nag Hammadi gospels to his earthly mother, saying his earthly mother gave him death but his heavenly mother gave him life. He also mentions that his followers are to be born again of the Ruach or Anima, and he speaks of baptism as a ritual of rebirthing, where we are BORN again of the water.

Everyone knows there is no birth without a womb, without a mother. Jesus explains this so that the gender of the Ruach is not only incidental, but central and crucial to the mystery of baptism, and the one being baptised is reborn as a child of the Holy Ghost, he or she is born again of the Holy Ghost, a son of the Goddess.

I have presented all these facts to conclude that Jesus, and his rabbi John the Baptist, both of whom were Essenes, were beyond a shadow of a doubt teaching a form of Goddess spirituality and a Goddess mystery tradition WITHIN Judaism, and that the Ruach’s status as a Divine WOMAN was central to the true mystery and meaning of baptism.

 

The wind of the Holy Ghost January 19, 2010


 

Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, Paraclete, Advocate, Comforter July 17, 2008


The Old Testament
In the OT the spirit of the Lord (ruah yhwh; LXX, to pneuma kyriou)
is generally an expression for God’s power, the extension of himself
whereby he carries out many of his mighty deeds (e.g., 1 Kings 8:12;
Judg. 14:6ff; 1 Sam. 11:6). As such, “spirit” sometimes finds
expression in ways similar to other modes of God’s activity, such
as “the hand of God” (Ps. 19:1; 102:25); “the word of God” (Ps. 33:6;
147:15, 18); and the “wisdom of God” (Exod. 28:3; 1 Kings 3:28; Job
32:8). The origins of the word “spirit” in both Hebrew (ruah) and
Greek (pneuma) are similar, stemming from associations with “breath”
and “wind,” which were connected by ancient cultures to unseen
spiritual force, hence “spirit” (cf. John 3:8, note the association
with air in English; e.g., “pneumatic,” “respiration, ” etc.). The AV
uses the term “Holy Ghost” for “Holy Spirit” based on an obsolete
usage of the word “ghost” (from Middle English and Anglo-Saxon,
originally meaning “breath,” “spirit”, cf. the German Geist). Thus it
is understandable that God’s creative word (Gen. 1:3ff.) is closely
akin to God’s creative breath (Gen. 2:7). Both ideas are identified
elsewhere with God’s spirit. As an agent in creation, God’s spirit is
the life principle of both men and animals (Job 33:4; Gen. 6:17;
7:15).

The primary function of the spirit of God in the OT is as the spirit
of prophecy. God’s spirit is the motivating force in the inspiration
of the prophets, that power which moved sometimes to ecstasy but
always to the revelation of God’s message, expressed by the prophets
with “thus saith the Lord.” Prophets are sometimes referred to
as “men of God” (1 Sam. 2:27; 1 Kings 12:22; etc.); in Hos. 9:7 they
are “men of the Spirit.” The general implication in the OT is that
the prophets were inspired by the spirit of God (Num. 11:17; 1 Sam.
16:15; Mic. 3:8; Ezek. 2:2; etc.).

The phrase “Holy Spirit” appears in two contexts in the OT, but is
qualified both times as God’s holy Spirit (Ps. 51:11; Isa. 63:10-11,
14), such that it is clear that God himself is the referent, not the
Holy Spirit which is encountered in the NT. The OT does not contain
an idea of a semi-independent divine entity, the Holy Spirit. Rather,
we find special expressions of God’s activity with and through men.
God’s spirit is holy in the same way his word and his name are holy;
they are all forms of his revelation and, as such, are set in
antithesis to all things human or material. The OT, especially the
prophets, anticipates a time when God, who is holy (or “other
than/separate from” men; cf. Hos. 11:9) will pour out his spirit on
men (Joel 2:28ff.; Isa. 11:1ff.; Ezek. 36:14ff.). who will themselves
become holy. The Messiah/ Servant of God will be the one upon whom
the spirit rests (Isa. 11:1ff.; 42:1ff.; 63:1ff.), and will
inaugurate the time of salvation (Ezek. 36:14ff.; cf. Jer. 31:31ff.).

Intertestamental Judaism
Within intertestamental Judaism several significant developments
shaped the idea of “Holy Spirit” as it was understood in NT times.
After the OT prophets had proclaimed the coming of the Spirit in the
messianic age of salvation, Judaism had developed the idea that the
spirit of prophecy had ceased within Israel with the last of the
biblical prophets (Syriac Bar. 85:3; 1 Macc. 4:46; 14:41; etc.; cf.
Ps. 74:9). Consequently, there arose from time to time a hope of the
dawning of the new age, especially within the apocalyptic movement,
which generally pointed to a supposed messiah and/or prophetic
reawakening of some kind (cf. Acts 5:34ff.). The Qumran community is
illustrative of this, since it understood itself to be involved in
the fulfillment of Israel’s messianic hope as the “preparers of the
way of the Lord” (Isa. 40:3; cf. 1QS 8. 14-16). The Qumran literature
also shows increased identification of the spirit of prophecy
with “God’s Holy Spirit” (1QS 8. 16; Zadokite Documents II. 12). The
phrase, “the Holy Spirit,” occasionally occurs in Judaism (IV Ezra
14:22; Ascension of Isa. 5:14; etc.), but, as in the rabbis, it
generally meant “God’s spirit of prophecy.” Thus, the messaianic
expectation of Judaism, which included the eschatological outpouring
of God’s spirit (e.g., 1 Enoch 49:3, citing Isa. 11:2; cf. Sybilline
Oracle III, 582, based on Joel 2:28ff.), was bound up with the
conviction that the Spirit had ceased in Israel with the last of the
prophets; the Holy Spirit was understood as God’s spirit of prophecy,
which would be given again in the new age to a purified Israel in
conjunction with the advent of a messiah.

The concept of the Holy Spirit was broadened through the Wisdom
Literature, especially in the personification of wisdom as that idea
came into contact with the idea of Spirit. As early as Prov. 8:22ff.
and Job 28:25ff. wisdom is presented as a more or less independent
aspect of God’s power (here as agent in creation), and wisdom is
credited with functions and characteristics that are attributed to
the Holy Spirit in the NT. Wisdom proceeded from the mouth of God and
covered the earth as a mist at creation (Sir. 24:3); she is the
breath of the power of God (Wisd. Solomon 7:25); and by means of his
wisdom God formed man (Wisd. Sol. 9:2). The Lord poured out wisdom
upon all his works, and she dwells with all flesh (Sir. 1:9-10).
Moreover, wisdom is full of spirit, and indeed is identified with the
Spirit (Wisd. Sol. 7:22; 9:1; cf. 1:5). Thus the Jews of NT times
were familiar with the background of these ideas as they are
variously expressed in the NT, ideas which use these background
concepts but move beyond them to some unexpected conclusions. Indeed,
Jesus taught that his messiahship and the corresponding outpouring of
the Spirit were firmly rooted in OT understanding (Luke 4:18ff.,
citing Isa. 61:1-2), and, similar to intertestamental Judaism,
understood the messianic Spirit of the Lord to be the Holy Spirit
(Matt. 12:32), the spirit which had foretold through the prophets
that the coming Messiah would inaugurate the age of salvation with
the pouring out of the Spirit on all flesh….

Advocate, (Gr. parakletos), one who pleads another’s cause, who helps
another by defending or comforting him. It is a name given by Christ
three times to the Holy Ghost (John 14:16; 15:26; 16:7, where the
Greek word is rendered “Comforter,” q.v.).

Comforter, the designation of the Holy Ghost (John 14:16, 26; 15:26;
16:7; R.V. marg., “or Advocate, or Helper; Gr. paracletos”) . The same
Greek word thus rendered is translated “Advocate” in 1 John 2:1 as
applicable to (the Comforter to be sent by) Christ. It means
properly “one who is summoned to the side of another” to help him in
a court of justice by defending him, “one who is summoned to plead a
cause.”

Spirit, Breath
Ruah: “breath; air; strength; wind; breeze; spirit; courage; temper;
Spirit.” This noun has cognates in Ugaritic, Aramaic, and Arabic. The
word occurs about 378 times and in all periods of biblical Hebrew…

Ruah frequently represents the element of life in a man, his
natural “spirit”: “And all flesh died that moved upon the earth,…
All in whose nostrils was the breath of life …” (Gen. 7:21-22). In
these verses the animals have a “spirit” (cf. Ps. 104:29). On the
other hand, in Prov. 16:2 the word appears to mean more than just the
element of life; it seems to mean “soul”: “All the ways of a man are
clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits
[NASB, “motives”].” Thus, Isaiah can put nepes, “soul,” and ruah in
synonymous parallelism: “With my soul have I desired thee in the
night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early …”
(26:9). It is the “spirit” of a man that returns to God (Eccl. 12:7).

… the Bible often speaks of God’s “Spirit,” the third person of the
Trinity. This is the use of the word in its first biblical
occurrence: “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness
was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the
face of the waters” (Gen. 1:2). Isa. 63:10-11 and Ps. 51:12
specifically speak of the “holy or free Spirit.” “

“If we follow Him (Jesus) then we cannot be conditioned by anything
because He talked of Spirit only. Spirit cannot be conditioned,
conditioned by anything. . . . I am here to tell you all these things
which Christ could not tell, and to fulfil what He wanted to say. All
those things I am saying to you.”

“The Kundalini rises through a very thin line of Brahmanadi. In the
beginning only a hair like thing rises, it pierces through; in some
people ,of course, in a big way it rises also. And then it pierces
this fontanel bone area which is a real baptism, real. Today only
people felt the cool breeze coming out of their heads. Can you do
that by jumping, or by paying money? They felt the cool breeze in the
hand. It’s written in the Bible, even in the Bible very clearly, that
it’s the cool breeze, cool breeze is the sign of the Holy Ghost. You
start feeling the cool breeze in your hands and you start feeling the
cool breeze on your head. This is the actualization.

Of course, you people don’t read other books which are very good,
like Adi Shankaracharya, People don’t even like the mention of his
name who has really and clearly said that it is the cool breeze; the
chaitanya is to be felt like cool breeze in the hands. They do not
want that you should know the truth. And this is the truth that when
you get your realization, you have to feel the cool breeze in your
hands yourself. You have to judge yourself. I’m not going to tell
you. It is you who has to see, it is you who has to feel, and then
you have to grow and you have to know all and everything; all the
secrets of Divine Science. You become the master then, you are the
guru.

You are the Spirit, and you should get it. It’s your own which is
given to you. I have nothing to do about it. I’m just a catalyst.”

RUAH- Divine breath March 10, 2008


descentpneuma.jpg

The many meanings of the Hebrew term ruah, used in the Bible to designate the Spirit, seem to give rise to some confusion. Indeed. in a given text, it is often not possible to determine the exact meaning of the word. One might waver between wind and breath, between breath and spirit, or between created spirit and the divine Spirit.
This multiplicity however has a certain wealth, for it establishes a fruitful communication between so many realities. In this regard it is better to give up in part the pretences of neat reasoning in order to embrace broader perspectives. When we think of the Holy Spirit, it is useful to remember that his biblica1 name means “breath”, and that it is related to the powerful blowing of the wind and to our own intimate breathing
Rather than clinging to an over-intellectual and arid concept, we will find it helpful to take in this wealth of images and facts. Translations unfortunately are unable to convey them to us completely, for they are often obliged to choose other terms. To render the Hebrew word ruah, the Greek translation of the Septuagint uses twenty-four different terms and so does not permit one to see all the connections between the texts of the Hebrew Bible.
To end this terminological analysis of the Old Testament texts concerning ruah, we can say that the breath of God appears in them as the power that gives life to creatures. It appears as a profound reality of God which works deep within man. It appears as a manifestation of God’s dynamism which is communicated to creatures
 
Please find below clarification from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“The Self is the Spirit. This Spirit resides in the heart of every human being and is in a witness-like state. The Spirit is the projection of God Almighty, while the Kundalini is the projection of the power of God, of His desire which is the Primordial Mother, or you can call it Adi Shakti, Holy Ghost or Athena.
So the Kundalini is the projection of the Holy Ghost, while the Spirit is the projection of God Almighty. The All-pervading Power of love is the power of the Primordial Mother, which creates and evolves, and does all the living work.”
