When you get your Self-realisation, you become the Spirit. And your attention is enlightened by that spirit. You become a witness of the whole world like a drama. This enlightened attention is a very powerful means of spreading divine vibrations. You see eyes of such person becomes innocent, absolutely innocent. We have to know that there is one thing that is our innocence which never destroy. It is covered with clouds … but never destroyed. And you regain that back your innocent state within yourself. At the same time you are so dynamic but you become extremely compassionate. You don’t have fears, You don’t have any grudges, you are absolutely floating in the beautiful atmosphere of truth. … Then the greatest thing that happens to you is that you jump into the ocean of joy. Now joy … it is not like happiness or unhappiness. When your ego is pampered, you are happy; when it is punctured, you are unhappy. But the joy …. It is a state which is to be experienced. And you start using your vibrations and raising the Kundalini of others, because this power you get. From the first stage of thoughtless awareness, you jump into another state called as doubtless awareness. And a tremendous transformation takes place.
Shri Mataji, Basel, Switzerland, 1994
But the greatest thing is the piercing of the Agnya Chakra which is described in all spiritual treatise, or may be called as the scriptures, that that is the door which is golden, which is like a cover, and no one can pass through that, so constricted is this door of Agnya Chakra. But Christ did cross that. His crossing has helped us today to open your Agnya. Without opening the Agnya you cannot go to Sahasrara. And this was done so easily in your case, only because Christ could go through all that torture and all that brutality, and crossed over. How much we should be indebted to Him, I don’t know words that can express, because He is the One who took lead in telling people that “You seek. You seek and you’ll find.” And then He says that “You have to come and bang at the door.” This is exactly what has happened in your case, that you have risen up to Agnya and then you have crossed beyond Agnya. This crossing of Agnya was not at all difficult for you, though by your own ideas of thinking and of conditioning, of the futuristic planning and all that, it was a big, big crowd, I should say, of very black clouds were hovering on the Agnya. Your thoughts were overpowering you, and you could not have penetrated through this Agnya which was all covered. But you did, and you never even felt that you have crossed the Agnya Chakra so easily.
The first of all, we all should really be very thankful to Christ for opening the Agnya for you. For Him all the tortures and all the brutality were nothing, because His purpose of life, His purpose of His advent, His incarnation, was to break the Agnya Chakra. Today you will find that even though your Agnya is opened out and you have crossed through, still you’ll be amazed that people get involved in the Agnya Chakra.
Shri Mataji, Istanbul, Turkey 19 April 1998
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.
