Wisdom is the balance between emotionality and rationality April 18, 2015


“There must be some reason for having rationality in us. Why God has given us rationality? He doesn’t believe in values like that. Rationality gives us the sense to understand that we cannot reach there through rationality because unless and until this thing happens to you, you are not going to believe.

You are not going to believe in it that this rationality on which we depend which is our support, which is we, we all the time think that our identification is complete with rationality and we are very rational, we are proud of it, the rationality also. So then you reach a point by, through rationality where you will understand that this is not the horse which will be useful any further.

This is the use of rationality; one way it takes you to that culminating point where you think it is to be decided or cannot be dependent upon, on the other side rationality gives you a view, a view which can be related later on, when you get realized.

You start understanding why rationality must be obtained, so it’s, it’s a teacher on a negative way, it’s a teacher on a negative way, but it’s a deception, because man was given freedom and he started using his freedom, he started using his rationality, when he reaches that point then he starts depending on his wisdom and wisdom is the balance between his emotionality and rationality, in the center, between his heart and his mind. ”

Why are we on this Earth?’ October 17, 2014


“So science cannot answer many questions and one of them is that ‘Why are we on this Earth? What is the purpose of our life? What is the goal of our life? What is our identity?’ This question is not asked and, if asked, they cannot answer. They cannot answer this simple question, ‘Why are we on this Earth?’ But one has to know that we are on this Earth to become the Spirit, to enter into the Kingdom of God. This is our purpose. That’s why we are here, and then to be the instruments of that Divine Power, which is all-pervading.”

Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi – 15 October 1993, extract from public programme, Philadelphia, USA.

 

Christ is Pranava, Aum, Logos October 9, 2014


“Christ came on this Earth with this big message that somebody has to pass through this special problem. Now let’s see why the problem was there. We have to understand the problem that faced human beings at that subtle level where they had to work out this special, a very extraordinary Incarnation. The problem was that human beings had raised their heads. By raising their heads their ego and superego grew up around their limbic area, making it a very hard shell, just like an egg. A man developed his I-ness and only way to transform him into a bird, like an egg breaks up into a bird, was to make the Kundalini rise. But how to make that compact stuff where it is crossing, crossable, which can be crossed over, which can be passed through.

So they had to create this special Incarnation, which is nothing but Pranava, the Aum, the Logos as you call it, the sound of the All Pervading Power. To be put at a place where nothing but the power itself can remain, because anybody else, all other Incarnations who came on this Earth had all the five elements within them. But He was just the power, the energy, the complete energy. He didn’t have, for example we all human beings are made of five elements on the right hand side as I told you, and when we die the part that is our body, means one of the five koshas, as they call the cocoons of the body which is the matter, falls off. Then the water cocoon also falls off and the soul remains with the Spirit on your head and the Kundalini also there. But He was the only One who had no earth element in it. And so it was a very special type of an energy engulfed, engulfed into a human being was placed.”

Kundalini is the Pure Desirе September 9, 2014


Today I told you about Kundalini, and that it is the Pure Desire within us that manifests or is awakened to give us our self-realization. The Pure Desire is only fulfilled when you get your self-realization. Otherwise, it is not manifested but is just dormant, still residual. Kundalini has created the whole universe, but until and unless you get your self-realization, until and unless you become one with your spirit, you have not achieved the manifestation of this power, which (state) will go on making you run and run and run, thinking that you have not yet achieved or not yet found out your meaning. It will be there all the time, ‘sleeping’, but giving you a feeling of vacuum. So this power must be made to manifest.

This power has got certain qualities. The first quality is that it goes against gravity. You see, a thing rises, it doesn’t go down. So a person has to be aspiring by nature. If a person is not of the aspiring type the Kundalini doesn’t rise, because, like you see when food presses down (from) the stomach it presses the sides of the intestines. By that, these movements of ‘going down’ take place. You see my point?…. So when the Kundalini starts pressing on the sides of the chakras, She creates a feeling of throwing it higher and higher so the chakra is bounced upward. All the heavy things all go downward, but the Kundalini rises higher and higher and higher because it is like a fire.

Fire never burns downwards, it always burns upwards. She also looks like fire and has the capacity of fire within Her to purify and burn off whatever can be burnt off. She purifies the things which cannot be burned and burns the things which are inflammable and can be…So when the Kundalini rises She burns off all useless things; all your useless desires, useless ideas of action, all sorts of useless accumulation of feelings and ego and every sort of nonsensical thing in between. Everything is burnt off fast because they can be burnt; they are not eternal by nature but are temporarily there. All that is temporary She burns down and that’s how She enlightens the Spirit, because the Spirit cannot be burnt by anything.

This burning is so beautiful in that it burns off all that is bad, stagnating, polluting, diseased and it cools down the system. It is very interesting to see how this power of fire becomes the cool breeze, but in science, also, you find that electricity can give you a hot breeze or cool breeze. You can transform from one to another. There is no ultimate for these things; they are always reversible. Supposing something becomes a magnetism; you can always convert it into electricity and electricity can always be converted into magnetism. But Kundalini’s such a thing that once she burns off everything that is there, that’s how you get the heat, because she is burning. But when she cools down, becomes cool, then she’s not reversible. That is why this is a “living process”. A living process is never reversible. All dead processes are reversible, they can be reversed…So the Kundalini expedites the living process, within, of our evolution.

So the power of Kundalini is to purify like fire. She doesn’t purify us like water, surprisingly. Now, what does water do? Water never burns off anything but it dissolves certain things. It can take something within itself; it can contain some dirt within itself. Supposing you put a color in the water, it assumes the color. But Kundalini does not assume the color. She burns out – Do you follow my point? – So, if you have anything wrong within you, she’ll burn it off, but she’ll not absorb it – she’s pure. She cannot absorb those things into her that will pollute her. She cannot be polluted…. This quality of fire, for example, if you put gold or silver into the fire you can purify it. The pure form comes in. That’s how you know. But if you put gold and silver in water nothing will happen. At most you can wash it from outside. But in[side] and out[side] you cannot do it. So, outwardly you can do it with other things, but with Kundalini you can do it in[side] and out[side]. The face also looks beautiful, as if some glazing has taken place on the face, a bright new face. It’s not sallow or horribly burning nor is it pale and ugly-looking, but becomes radiant. Radiance is what the Kundalini gives you. Have you seen molten iron? Supposing you take a pillar of iron and heat it to a point whereby it starts showing copper and all sorts of color – golden copperish and all that, like a furnace….But very silently, very silently it works out.

I see only your spirit July 5, 2014


“Kundalini is so great. She sucks in everything – your ego, your conditionings, your superego – everything She sucks in. And you become what you are. You are really beautiful. And you are the spirit. I see only your spirit. I don’t see you – to be very frank. I just see your Kundalini and see the problems on her, on her movement on the centers. But I don’t see what country you come from, what place you come from.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 3 July 1980, extract from public programme, Caxton Hall, London, UK.
