The thing is, true knowledge is a part and parcel of your being. It’s just within you. It is not some sort of a concrete stuff that you have read or you have understood, but it just has to become a light within you, and that light is there.
There’s no necessity for you to be very well-educated or to be very intelligent or to be very highly placed. It is not necessary. It is how your heart is clean. In the heart it resides. Imagine: all other knowledge resides in the brain, while the pure knowledge resides in the heart. It is very surprising.
But we do know also that our heart rules the head …. Unless and until your heart is clean, unless and until in your heart you have a beautiful image of a person who is very, very pure, you cannot – you cannot do anything mentally. From your heart, if you have to do, your heart has to be very clean and extremely wise. This is the point one has to jump into: that your heart, is it wise? For example, to get attached to someone too much, identified with someone too much, shows that your heart is not clean. It has so many bondages. Open your heart, fully.
And that’s why they say that the Goddess resides in the heart, in the centre heart. She resides in the centre heart because she is so balanced. She resides in the centre heart as Shakti [power], and she gives you all that you want.
Shri Mataji, Cabella, Italy, 27 September 1998
So when you are enlightened, the conscious mind is something like a tree into which the sap is now flowing. It may be that it is just like a leaf or it may be it is like a flower, or maybe it is like a fruit. So it changes its forms once he gets realization. If a person gets realization then the conscious mind moves on, getting more and more light. Say, for example, when the electricity comes, you can see this room, you can see another’s room, you can see another room, you can go round and see and again, again you will see it all the rooms; then you become aware of all the rooms. So you are conscious of all these. But in the beginning you are just conscious of the room where you are standing, isn’t it?
So the conscious mind’s definition cannot be given after realization. A person like Me, say for example, has a conscious mind that might envelop the whole world. Or a conscious mind of a person who is realized soul who is still not anywhere, just started, then he’s only conscious as to where is right, where is left, where is this. So before the realization the conscious mind sees things around you. Out of that also there are categories. Some people see, say, for artists can see something, and a scientist can see something, another poet will see something. So it depends on the conscious mind how it is, has got the trend. But still it won’t see something that is subtle behind it, and that only is possible after you get your realization.

We had a very successful Sahaja Yoga workshop at Wamuran, near Brisbane, on Sunday 29th June 2014. About 35 people attended, many for the first time.
The program started at 9.30am with ‘meet and greet’, refreshments and introductions. This was followed by a short introduction to Sahaja Yoga and then Self-realisation. Everyone then experienced footsoaking, clearing the subtle system and exchanging vibrations.
An in-depth demonstration followed of the various clearing techniques used in Sahaja Yoga. These treatments include candles, lemons and chillies, and onion treatment for the Agnya Chakra.
The hard-working kitchen team had cooked a beautiful lunch which was served outside in the sunshine.
After lunch, a meditation/workshop was held outside on the Mother Earth where exchanging vibrations and experiencing inner silence were only interrupted by the wind, the birds and the rustling of trees.
Shri Mataji’s video talk was followed by music from ‘Sahaj Sangeet’ bhajan group. The performance was very well received, with people joining in clapping. Finally, a silent meditation left everyone in Sahastrara.
