Spirit and Kundalini: The Reflection of the Primordial Father and Mother

"The Spirit resides in us in our heart. It's the reflection of God Almighty. In Sanskrit language: this aspect of God which is all-pervading and is the first and the last, is called as Sadashiva, is the Father, who does not incarnate. We say Yahova, you can say, or the God who does not incarnate. This great aspect which encompasses everything ultimately and also manifests everything, is reflected within our heart as the Spirit. This aspect is just the witness aspect. It witnesses the play of its power, the Primordial Power, the Holy Ghost, to see what is created by Her. He's the only enjoyer of the game. He sees the game, the leela, the fun. She organizes everything, it is She who gets divided into three powers, it is She who creates the whole universe, it is She who gives us this evolution, it is She who makes us human beings and it is She who has to make us the higher human being. That's the Holy Ghost, the Primordial Holy Ghost and the reflection of that is this Kundalini within us. These two have to meet. They are separated; the Spirit within you and the Holy Ghost within you have to meet. That is the Yoga, that's the union."

Nature versus Material Life

"Now, you notice in the nature it's so matching, you know. Nothing gross, nothing loud - it's so beautiful, this is red but it has green to match it. This Mother Earth knows everything, She understands everything, She does everything, but what do we do for Mother Earth? - Is to run after artificial things, machinery, this thing - and now a new thing has come, is computer. It's all right if you want to write letters to someone, but otherwise it's quite maddening, you know. And this computer will make our brain absolutely zero. We'll be paralyzed, we won't be able to think 2 + 2. So, anything that you want to use also, should have its maryadas, don't go beyond it.

If you take to swimming, you'll go on swimming till you get sick. If you are horse riding, you'll go on horse riding till you fall down. You see, this is also a kind of a life which has no maryadas - like greed has no maryadas, that's how also this kind of nonsense, 'I am only fond of this, I am only fond of this.' You are a human being, you should never say like that. On the contrary you should say 'I must learn this, I must know this, what is this all about?' It is very important, otherwise your personality will be a dwarf personality - and ultimately people end up in money. I don't understand, I can't even count 200 notes, can't even. I don't know about money, I should say, but I'm good at mathematics but I don't know whatever money you are giving goes direct to them and they do it what they like. Now, if somebody says, 'How much you got for this?' I don't know? 'How much for royalties?' I don't know, because I'm not interested. I'm not interested. What is there to be so much interested in money? But I get money, all right, no problem, never a problem."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - 4 October 1997, extract from evening before Navaratri talk, Cabella, Italy.

Sharing Self-Realization: Do we share it or will others get it from us?

Q (Lady): - Once we achieve Realization, do we go out to give it to others and do others come to us?

Shri Mataji: - No, no you should go all out. Imagine, at this age of mine - 70 years, I am traveling all over the world. You cannot enjoy it alone, so you want to give it others. And then only you enjoy. Giving Realization is the greatest joy.

Can Realization Be Lost? (Q&A)

No, one cannot. You see, actually it's like a connection. Now see, this instrument is connected to the mains. All right? If it is not connected, it has no identity, no meaning. Isn't it? But, supposing it's a loose connection, then it may drop out. So best thing is to make the connection perfect. And which is very easy.

The Significance of Human Birth

Now the last breakthrough is only possible for human beings. That breakthrough is the one you have to achieve. That's why you are a human being. Now you see here, they have shown the brain like that. But actually it is like a pyramid. Only human brain is like that. And because of that, all these things work out. So you have to reach a certain stage of your evolution, from where you have to jump onto that form where you become the spirit.

The Magnum Opus of Divine's Planning: Our Subtle System

We must say our Creator has been a greatest planner. If you see the periodic laws of chemistry, you will see how He has organized all the matter, how He has categorically divided and in the same way, He has planned within us a beautiful system by which we can become one with this all pervading power of divine love. Once you become that, then what they call, you become a saint. Means, you become yourself. So, what do you get? The first thing you get is the self-knowledge. You know about your own centers. You know about what's wrong with you and you don't want to have it. Because you don't like it. Overnight, people have dropped alcoholism, drugs, overnight. I never say "don't do anything" because I know half of you might go away. But it just works that way. Like a snake in your hand and you are in darkness. Supposing you are obstinate, somebody says "See, there is a snake in your hand, in your hand, please leave it." If you are obstinate, you will say "No it's a rope. What's wrong?" That's the mantras these days. Tell something to somebody, they say "What's wrong?" Till the snake bites the person, he will go on holding. And, when a little light comes in him, he will just drop it. That's exactly what happens to you when you become the Self. The light of your spirit shines in your attention. And you see the things in proper light.

Movement towards Materialism is Due to Corruption of Scripture, Routed via Atheism

Some people have tampered with the scriptures, I am sure about it. And I have tried to bring all nonsensical ideas to people, who, somehow give up all their intelligence, all their logic and believe it.

So when an intelligent man looks at all these things, he becomes an atheist. Even by becoming atheist, one has to know why are you here, what is the purpose of your life, why are you here. What is the goal of your life? Is it just to waste your time or to be here for a short time and finish off, to insure yourself and then die? The worst thing that has happened to human beings, I think is that materialism has taken over. By materialism, we have really become very gross, extremely superficial. And not bothered at all about spiritual life. Those people who did bother, whom I call as seekers, people of special category - were caught up by false gurus and lots of false things. Because, they realized there is a market of such people and such people must be somehow or other captured and used for their own purposes. Only purpose is making money - its marketing.
