So a woman is a woman and a man is a man, and if a man tries to be a woman and a woman tries to be a man, there is going to be a problem. But that does not mean that a woman should sit at home and look after the children. It doesn’t mean that at all. But the woman’s qualities are of nourishment, are of soothing, are of compassion. They’re such powerful qualities, you don’t know. Your compassion is so great that your children cannot go anywhere. Anything happens they must come to you. The husband cannot go anywhere. He has to come. Compassion is so pure and so great that the power of compassion you have never realized. This is the power of compassion of God, is His feminine, the Mother that is working it out. He is just the witness of the whole show. He is not bothered. If you people don’t behave, all right, he just switches off everything. The switch off is very anxious because He’s just a spectator. He is the lonely spectator of the whole spectacle and He can just switch off the whole spectacle if He does not like it.
So the mother has to play a very beautiful role, very carefully she has to nourish her children, she has to look after them, she has to bring them up, and should be then entering into the Kingdom of God. Then only you can enter into the Kingdom of God and that is a thing of great patience, love and tremendous power. If you don’t have power, say if this Mother Earth did not have power, she could not have borne us. With all the kinds of horrible things going on, the way we are digging her, the way we are torturing her, she would have collapsed long time back. But she has such a tremendous power of forgiveness, of compassion, love and nourishment that she is activated, and your Kundalini is the same Mother Earth, she is the representation of the same Mother Earth, the same Holy ghost, of the same kumbha – as you call it, the Aquarius. That’s the Aquarian Age they call it because this is the Age when you will get your nourishment. Your own Kundalini * is going to nourish you, she is going to soothe you, she is going to guide you properly. The Mother is the greatest guru…
