…….unless and until the human desire is very strong, the human will is very strong and is asking for the Reality, the Reality does not go into action. Other things, of course, as far as the creation is concerned, creating the animals and all the trees and the fruits and flowers, all these things are done. But the human evolution could not have matured earlier because there was not so much of seeking. So when the time came, when the necessity was so great, that the necessity itself brought forth Sahaja Yoga*.
And it happened that I really saw the Sahastrara. Of course, you know there’s a difference between your Sahastrara and Mine. And I saw the Sahastrara, which is the Great Sahastrara, opening out beautifully. And the petals were just like flames – rounded flames, not like flames but rounded ones, rounded beautifully coloured flames of different colours. That’s why I wore today a blouse of many colours and a sari of many colours. Because I saw so many permutations and combinations of these. It opened out so beautifully. And as if every petal was individually, absolutely complete and perfect, but so integrated at the base. And the way it opened out, and the movement was so rhythmic and so harmonious. There was no problem. Such a harmony was between them. No fluctuation anywhere, as if they were dancing to the tune you see, they opened out.
And the colours, all spread out their light around the aura. And in the centre I saw the Agya (…), or you can say the Sun colour, and all the chakras from there also emitting out, but the chakras were darker in shades and they were emitting. So dark that they were all looking blackish, you see, so dark, sort of condensed colour they had. And they were also emitting light all over. And the light, as soon as the whole thing opened out, the light absolutely spread out, and then I said “It’s done”, it can be done.So, first I had to open out My Sahastrara itself, then your Sahastraras could be opened out. And then I felt that, a tremendous flow of My grace, started flowing. So much grace even upon Me, my own face, like torrential rain, you see, on Me. Absolutely I was so drenched in that joy, really I was lost, absolutely lost. Sort of, I felt that the whole creation is now resounded with that Universal Consciousness, just like that. Everything was finished, only the joy was permeating. It was such a beautiful time. And then I started My work….
when the Sahastrara opened out, I knew that I will have to come out in My true colours. Of course, not yet, I have not yet come out because that would be terrible, you see. But as it is when the Sahastrara opened out I realised that the instrument is now operative.So this Instrument that is before you is the Instrument by which you are going to know the Truth, you can find out the Truth now, through this Instrument of mine. Because through this Instrument you will get your Kundalini awakened, you’ll get your realisation and through your vibrations you will be able to know the Truth….
