…..If you are a real Sahaja Yogi, then nothing can happen to you. But you have been just under wrong impression. Whether you go to temple, or whether you go to wrong places and do all kinds of rituals – it has never helped anyone.
So first you have to empty yourself. If you are already filled with these ideas, these age old ideas, and you are still carrying on with them, how can the Divine be filled? If there’s a pot already full of water or anything – you cannot fill it. So you have to empty it completely. Empty yourself, empty your mind. It’s possible through Sahaja Yoga if you can take your Kundalini beyond Agnya chakra. By not reacting! Reaction is the worst thing, because reaction comes through your Agnya, as I told you the other day, and it is due to your conditioning or due to your ego. So some people react because of their conditioning, and some people react because of their ego. So why should you react to anything? Why don’t you enjoy – by not reacting. You just watch. See how beautifully they have made beautiful flowers – just enjoy it. What is the need – some will find some faults, somebody will say this should not have been there, how did they manage this, all kinds of nonsensical things. The joy of its creation is there. And you should be able to see it, feel it, enjoy it. Then you are a Sahaja Yogi. Otherwise you are not. If you are a reacting type, you cannot be a Sahaja Yogi.
This is a degree – Sahaja Yoga* is – I think there are so many various styles of Sahaja Yogis. Somebody is just minor, somebody a little plus, somebody’s like that. But the depth of the Sahaja Yogi is to be measured by the way he keeps joyous and happy. Goes on criticizing others, go on getting angry with others, all these things are going on, and he thinks he’s a Sahaja Yogi. In our Divine University we have no degrees, we don’t give you certificates, you are a Sahaja Yogi, if you have got your Realization. If the Kundalini has burst opened ( Shri Mataji keep her hand above Sahastrara) – it’s all right, you are a Sahaja Yogi.
But that Sahaja Yogi may not be a real Sahaja Yogi. It only depends when you are joyous and you are anxious to give Realizations to others. You want to share your Realization, you just don’t want to keep it to yourself. If that is not your condition, then you are still not a full Sahaja Yogi………..
