the only truth I know is my own experience

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi was a visionary February 25, 2011

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (21.03.1923 -23.02.2011)

She was a visionary willing to share her view of a better world that includes a place for each of us, side by side, as one. She was also the founder of Sahaja Yoga, a worldwide movement in over a hundred countries. The yoga is the practical application of her vision.

The problem with visionaries is that there is a fine line that separates their vision from everybody else’s dream. That line, as fine as it is, is an important one. People will ask the simple question “How do we get there? Unless there is a practical solution, what’s the use?” The gap between the vision and the reality will, for many people, always be unbridgeable.

This was not the case with Shri Mataji. Her experience was deep. From her days in the ashram of Mahatma Gandhi to her nation’s fight for freedom, she showed that she very much understood this world. She knew who we were and where we were going. She knew our culture better than we do, our souls and our dreams.

In short, the key to opening the door, the practical solution that she offered was something very simple. It is Self-realization.

Remember those dreams you had of the perfected society, the harmonious people, the contentment and tranquility? Remember those book you read – Siddhartha and The Prophet – the stories of enlightenment, rumours of the Buddha, inner knowledge and true peace. It is like that.

And why not?

Enlightenment and attainment and vision are not just the property of the distant past, nor the promise a remote future.

One day promises have to be fulfilled. We cannot always live in the realm of future hope.

As Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi would say: It can all happen now.

The dangers of Sahaja yoga meditation practice June 26, 2009

Recently many of my friends and acquaintances all of a sudden got a genuine interest in practicing Sahaja yoga meditation- apparently because they have been watching me since years and came to a conclusion it must be a good thing because it makes me so happy and my life so easy. Generally there seems to be a growing interest in Sahaja yoga meditation practice worldwide and I believe it is important to make the interested population aware of some dangers in connection with it.

Danger Nr.1

After some time of Sahaja yoga mediation practice you will find out that communication with many people will become difficult as you will not be able to keep up the favourite topic of all conversations – the moaning. That can become a real problem if you are not a skillful conversation leader – why should you keep up a totally boring and useless conversation at the time when you know what to do about the problems (interestingly some people seem not to be interested in solutions but only in moaning).

Danger Nr.2

After some time of Sahaja yoga meditation practice you will find out that your life will change and all the happenings, people and nature around will start bubbling with colours. The number of happy coincidences and amount of luck will grow. At the same time something else can start growing – namely the jealousy of people. Some people may start having serious difficulties with you becoming “too positive”.

Danger Nr 3

After some time of Sahaja yoga meditation practice you will find out that the true value of all things is the vibrational one.You will start enjoying only things that have been created with love, attention, with the quality of heart and soul. Immediately you will know which object, music, or information is valuable for you and will do you good – literary in seconds you will be able to percept and revise huge bites of information with the right solution and answer for every situation (compared to this the famous sixth sense wearable device is peanuts)

Danger Nr.4

After some time of Sahaja yoga meditation practice you will notice that more and more people feel attracted to you – some can mistake it for the physical attraction but the true reason for that is your increasing freshness and loveliness. Regular sahaja meditation has some interesting impact on a meditator as: glowing eyes, softer skin and beaming face. All that will be consciously or unconsciously recognised by the people you meet. The possible danger for you here: will you be able to deal with your increasing popularity? (more…)
