Public Lectures (Australia ’92)

Question: Can you please tell us a little more about what we mean by the Spirit and how that is related to our consciousness, and how the two things are linked by Self-realization?

Shri Mataji: It’s a good question. Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty within us. It’s said that, He has made human beings in His Own Image. Now we should not get confused with the word image. Image means the reflection. So we reflect God Almighty. We are not God but we reflect. Image is different from the actual thing. So now, when you are, as a human being, then the Spirit is just a witness in the heart watching you, and the seat of the God Almighty is here, and He is reflecting in human heart. He’s just watching, He’s a witness, He doesn’t come into your attention, He’s watching you.

But when Realization takes place when Kundalini pierces through this, then it starts flowing into our attention, the light of the Spirit. Attention that we have is the consciousness. We have general consciousness a human consciousness you can say, which is, expressed through our central nervous system. The conscious mind is enlightened, it becomes a dynamic force, and gradually your beauty your glory starts opening and recording what you are on your conscious mind which is an enlightened one. It’s a very good question, but it requires more time, but as it is I would say first you get your Realization and gradually you will know how your conscious mind has become so alert.

Question: How do you communicate with people who are bound by their dogma and are rigid in their beliefs?

Shri Mataji: See love can melt anything isn’t it? And there is a way. First you have to, logically talk to them. Divine logic is very convincing, but if somebody’s a stone, there is no need to break your head with the stone, but logically you can explain, and if they have dogmas they will melt, because you can ask them a simple question: ‘What did you get out of it? What powers did you get out of it? A simple question should be asked, and that’s how the dogmas will fall. But mostly it happens like this I’ve seen, if there are, many friends and, or family everybody gets to Sahaja Yoga and they see the way they are, then automatically they come. Mostly dogmas are fashions, so it’s a fashion, and these people who have dogmas are, people who do not seek truth. But once they see also, sometimes they come. But we cannot guarantee that everybody will be there. According to John, He just said hundred and forty-four thousand, we have already crossed that limit, so I don’t how many will be there. It’s a question of one’s own seeking and also, they have to deserve it, they should be worthy of it.

Question: I have this friend with allergy problems, is there anything that you can base the chakras on?

Shri Mataji: Yes it is curable. This is due to liver, it’s a liver problem, allergies are due to liver. But also it’s triggering from the left side and so it can be cured, we have cured that. It can be cured, all right? Some people take more time, and some people take less time, but I’ve seen most of them get cured, most of them. You may write to Me if you have any…

Question: At what age is it good for a child to get Self-realization?

Shri Mataji: Any age. There’s nothing, no limits on age at all, any age. Even when the mother is pregnant they get Realization. There’s not age limit or anything.
