Public Program, Vancouver (Canada), 17 June 1989.

We have to be the Spirit, we are not this body, we are not this channels either, we are not the subconscious and we are not the supraconscious. We are not this ego, or these conditioning and these habits because we say, ” I have got habits.” So who is this I? ” I have got children”, who is the I? “I have got two eyes”, who is this I? We never say “I am the eyes.” So in subtle ways we know that I is different. When the doctors also call it as the autonomic nervous system, they should ask one question: who is this auto? Auto means the one who drives the car, for example we call it automobile but there has to be a driver. So one has to realize that there is something missing still in a human awareness and that’s why all these problems of different types are a reason suddenly (startlingly?) we are facing them, like ecological problems, all kinds of imbalances in life have come.

The reason is that human awareness or the mental projections when they move, they move in a linear way and when they move in a linear way they recoil and trouble us. You went into science, all right, science, science, science, science, where atomic energy then the waste then all that repels you. These are all transitory things, there are so many transitory things we indulge into, so the essence of all the religions, if you go to the essence of it, not to the outside horrible nature of there that you see, but if you go to the basic essence of it is this. That you should seek the eternal and you should look after the transitory in a way as much as it is required in its own limitations and in it’s understanding. This is where we have failed the second part and we have run after the transitory things, just now I was driving through the park and I was, I’m so enamored always by cedar trees and there’s so few left now, in six years time so many have disappeared because we go all out, into one direction.

Now money making, money making should not be the aim of the life, because we have seen that people who have got money are not very happy or peaceful people. It doesn’t give you that piece that joy. People talk of peace and of having no wars but it’s so superficial, there’s something gone wrong with human being somewhere, and they need today is the transformation and this transformation is only possible if they get the enlightenment and in that light they see where we are wrong. For example somebody’s holding a snake in these darkness. You tell that person you’re holding a snake. He’ll say “No I’m holding a rope”. How do you argue with him, best to put the light and let him have a look. So the Spirit within you, Spirit within you when it enlightens you, you see for yourself what’s wrong with you, you become your own master, you become your own guide, you don’t need any guide and this happening has to take place in these modern times because we have reached a point where we are started thinking where have we gone wrong and that’s how seeking of the truth has started.

There are so many people all over the world who are seeking truth and falling into the traps, say traps of drugs, all kinds of these things like they use tarots, this that all sorts of things and all outward things, also they fall into the traps of false gurus and false gurus knew there is a market for befooling people, so they were here to make money out of you and to use you for their own purpose of making money. Now this is a living process within us, as we have become human beings in our evolutionary process, we have to become the higher personality, and to become the higher personality there has to be some way which has to be spontaneous, as we have become spontaneous human beings in the same way spontaneously it has to happen to us that we become the higher human being where our human awareness become something much more. As Yung has said very clearly, that we have to become collectively conscious, collectively conscious. Now this is not just I’m saying, that we are all friends, Canadians and all of us are friends and talking about we are brothers and sisters, this is all outward. When it comes to reality, we find we are not friends even in one family we find there’s no love. The reason is this collective consciousness is a part and parcel of your central nervous system, so it has to manifest on your central nervous system.

How it works out is that once you become a realize soul or you have your second birth as they call it. When the Kundalini pierces through your fontanel bone area and you get connected with this all-pervading power, then your Spirit manifest and the Spirit is the collective being within us. Then you start feeling on your fingertips clearly on our fingertips we start feeling the centers that are yours and the centers of others. If you can just decode it, if you could just decode it and know what these indications mean, for example now here the centers are shown on the hand that these are centers are five, six and seven centers, like we can say, five fingers, six and seven. The seven centers on the right hand side with the deal, they deal with your physical and your intelligence or your mental side. And the right hand deals with your future. On the left side also we have five, six and seven and these deal also with the seven centers within us. Now even a child if he is a realized soul, even if there are ten children who are realized souls. You just ask them to put hands towards somebody, close their eyes or you can tie up their eyes, and they will tell you the same thing. What’s wrong with this fellow, they’ll raise the fingers whatever is wrong with that person and immediately you can diagnose the person what’s the problem with that person is.

So now the whole system is working out towards our destruction in a way because we care so much for transitory things, now transitory things are transitory because in built within them is the power to destroy, otherwise they would have been permanent. So once we run after the transitory things at a point it reaches and collapses on us, and the destruction of the society starts, destruction of all that is beautiful within us destroys and gradually we become like robots or I don’t know what to say because the human beings loose their beauty of their love, of their understanding, of their oneness that they are part of parcel of the whole. The microcosm has to become the macrocosm. All these things are achieved only by this connection of the Kundalini with the all-pervading power. For example now I’m speaking on this instrument is a simple thing, but unless and until it is connected to the mains it has no meaning. In the same, unless and until we are connected to the mains our life has no meaning, we cannot understand absolute truth, we live in a relative world for some people this is very good, for some people this is very good, some people say this is ideal but it is not. How are we to decide that this is absolute, absolute can be decided only when you have reached that point of absolute truth.

The Spirit is the one, which is the source of absolute truth, absolute love we can call it, a complete pure love and it is pure knowledge. This Spirit is within us in our heart, only thing it has to now manifest into our attention and when it manifest in our attention even our attention becomes very powerful. Even with your attention you can do many things, of course all benevolent, nothing harmful or destructive. You can pay attention to somebody and it works so wonderfully, all these things are within us like a computer we are. We are already a computer in a way because we don’t have to program ourselves to see what is the color of this and that, but this computer is a Divine computer and a new race comes up out of this which is enlightened, which has collective consciousness, which has the power. So such a person become extremely dynamic very powerful at the same time extremely compassionate and loving and patient. He becomes very peaceful. This is the personality advantage but he gets powers to raise the Kundalini. He can raise the Kundalini of others, like one light which is enlightened can enlighten another light, in the same way, you can have the power to raise the Kundalini and give realization to others. That’s how Sahaja Yoga spreads and it has worked wonders in so many countries now we have Sahaja Yoga working in 35 countries.

In Turkey I went and I was amazed in a Muslim country everybody warned me, Mother you are going to a Muslim country, theirs turned out to be the best Sahaja Yogis, such wonderful people there were, because they’re fed up with fundamentalism, they’re are fed up all kinds of nonsensical things ideas that are coming from the west also from the east and they’re just there, that is the best country I found in the whole of Europe which has worked out Sahaja Yoga. So we have to now understand that we have not yet solved our problems, and if we have to solve our problems we have to become the Spirit. For this you can not pay, what can we pay for a living process, supposing you have to sprout a seed, what do we pay for the Mother earth, she doesn’t understand money. First thing you must know you can not pay for it and if anybody says that you have to pay then you know it’s all falsehood, it’s some sorts of a black magic that they put some sort of a Spirit in you and you feel some sort of a feeling and that passes out and it doesn’t give you any powers. It has to give you the power of raising the Kundalini of others and giving them realization, but talking about the knowledge, is like talking about the electricity, the history of electricity, instead of just switching on, because after all it’s all built in within you, so better is to get your realization and then better talk about it, and know about it and get all the knowledge.

In that light you will understand much better than without it. Now here I’ve told you that it’s in your own, is your own power this Kundalini is your own power which is there in three and a half coils and coils means Kundalini in Sanskrit language. That’s why it was called as Kundalini. Now this knowledge developed more in India and in other countries also, I was surprised the other day my sun in law who is doing some comparative studies. He told me that in South Africa they have made the picture of Kundalini and chakras long time back and it is very surprising in so many countries which were very old like Greece and all that they knew about the Kundalini. It is amazing that they knew all about it but the whole thing vanished into thin air the knowledge and became a very secretive knowledge.

Now the time has come to talk about it and tell everything about it because the Divine I would say is anxious to save this creation, which is so important. So you are the epitome of evolution, just you have to break through, there is a little journey which is very simple, which is not at all disturbing and it works out but to keep this connection all right to make this connection permanent you have to little bit spend some time to understand it, That’s all. You don’t have to pay for it but you have to give little time, after all why are we having watches around us, we’re having watches to save some time to save ourselves and this is a little time you have to give, not much but little time and you can within one months time, you can become masters, if you really want to.

May God bless you all.
