Ego and Superego
"The super-ego and ego represent your past and future. A thought rises and falls off and another thought rises and falls off. One is a past, one is a future. Our mind jumps on the cusp of these thoughts. We have to be in the center of these two thoughts, which is the present, we have to be. But just by giving lectures and saying, “Now you be in the center”, you just don’t become. By giving lectures or giving badges or starting organizations or having some sort of a postcard with you attached on your head, you don’t become that. All honest seekers must know that this is all outside, it has nothing to do with inside . If you are true seekers and know that all these things are ego-pampering, and is very misleading. It is to be understood in its right perspective, in the proper wisdom of a human being."

Too much ego takes you away from that Spirit
You have to ask for forgiveness if you have too much of ego. It is very important because if you have too much of ego means what? That you have pampered it too much. That means you have used it too much. You have dominated people and that’s why you have such a lot of ego. If you have such a lot of ego you must all the time try to humble down in your heart. Now in the heart resides the spirit. The ego, too much of ego in a person always takes you away from that spirit.
Now the time has come
Now the time has come; the blossom time has come for many people to get Realization. They have to get it. This is predicted, the time has come that you all have to get Realization. This is actually the last judgment. But the last judgment is not going to start by the way people think it to be – like we will be put into these weighing pans and weighed. It is not that way. It is going to be through some sort of a happening within us and that happening is this Kundalini awakening. When the Kundalini awakening takes place, we start judging ourselves, leave alone others. We start judging ourselves, we start knowing ourselves. Where are we? What are we catching? What is the problem? Where, what is the centre catching? And you start correcting yourself.

Accept life as it is
Accept life as it is. As it is, whatever life is there, accept it. Don’t retaliate, don’t get angry, don’t get upset, just accept and you’ll enjoy the same life which was irritating you. You will see the enjoying part of that and it will be so beautiful the way you will see that you’ll get over all your problems. You’ll get over all your enemies and a kind of a very fresh beautiful existence you’ll have.

Speaking in a sweet manner
Speaking in the sweet manner is very important. Some people think it is smart to speak in a rude manner or is very intelligent to shout on people, but no one likes this kind of a personality. You may be intelligent, you may be very sharp or smart, maybe on a television people may like to see you, but not as companions, as friends. To speak in a very sweet manner is a sign of good breeding, good culture and fear of God. Those who fear God will never speak rudely to another person, because in another person also the same spirit is shining and why should we be sharp or angry with another person who is created by God Almighty as we are created.

How to know God
"First of all, to know God you have to know your Spirit. Without knowing your Spirit you cannot know God. When you say that “Yes I know,” what is your I? Who is this I? Which part of you is this I which knows? This I is not your Spirit. It could be your conditioning or could be your ego. Could be anything but it is not your Spirit. When you know through Spirit, you know it as an actualization. Within you lies this power, the dormant power, which is responsible for giving you your second birth. Is the germinating power within you. Like you have a connection for every instrument. In the same way you have got this germinating power within you, which has to rise to connect you with that all pervading subtle power of God through your Spirit. Once you feel that power within you, you can actually feel it in your central nervous system flowing from your fingers, from your hand, from your feet, from your being. In the beginning you just feel it flowing from your hand."
Desire for God
"Kundalini is the desire of God. "Is not desire for God" - "is the desire of God itself." So it can be only awakened by that desire. It is the desire of God within you that is being blessed and the desire of God is the shakti.
And the desire of God is that He loves you. His desire is to give you all His powers and all his loving capacity. This is His desire. It is placed within you and is dormant. So when it rises, His desire is fulfilled. And that is how you get your fulfillment.
Unless and until you are God, you cannot command desire of God. But after realization He gives you, bestows His power that you can manoeuvre His desire. You can raise the kundalini in the people which is the desire of God. And you can make Him desire. That is the greatest one can achieve."
"You should not get stuck into anything. If you are detached, then everything works out very well. But if you are attached, you just get worries and problems, thinking too much about it. Your life becomes miserable. But if you are detached, then the nature takes over ... and you feel extremely relaxed, then absolutely relaxed. But when you are thinking, "we have to do this, we have to do that, we have to achieve this" and you start worrying, two things can happen. One is you will get confused. You will not achieve any results, one thing, and you will go on thinking, thinking, thinking. And the second thing that will happen is you will exhaust yourself completely. But if you are detached, then as Sahaja Yogis, you will be amazed how things work out.After getting your Realization, you should try to detach yourself by getting into thoughtless awareness. Just detach. "
H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Be in balance
"Supposing the Mother Earth was very hot like the sun, there would have been no growth, or it was cold like moon, there would have been no growth. It had to come to the centre where it had both the things in proper proportions to grow. In the same way a human being has to work out that you keep a moderation and a balance"
"UNDERSTAND NOT TO GO TO EXTREMES OF ANYTHING"

What should we ask for?
WHAT SHOULD WE ASK FOR?
" Complete satisfaction in my heart, joy in my heart, bliss in my heart; so that the whole world becomes blissful." " Give me Love, Love, that I could love the whole world and that the whole world becomes one in Love." "Give salvation to the entire humanity, which is suffering." "Take me to Your Feet" And.. "Cleanse me with Thy Love".
Jai Shree Mataji
What is Atma?
"Atma (Spirit/Self) is the reflection of Paramatma (Self/God Almighty) in our heart.
This reflection is like the sun in water. Although reflection of the sun is in the water, he is away in the sky and not in the water. Similarly,
Atma is as much as it is seen, it is beyond all that and not limited by it.”
"The Atma (Spirit) resides inside this heart and after Sahaja Yoga its light spreads within us in seven layers.”
Jai shree Mataji
Importance of Meditation
"To say you must meditate, people think it’s a kind of a ritual or maybe a kind of a style of Sahaja Yoga. No – meditation is for you to go deep down into yourself, to achieve all that your Sahasrara wants to give you. To achieve that height of detachment, of understanding is only through meditation. So what happens in meditation is that your awareness crosses over the Agnya, goes above and is now stationed in the Sahasrara, in thoughtless awareness. Then the reality of the Sahasrara, the beauty of the Sahasrara starts pouring in your own chracter, in your own temperament.Unless and until you meditate – not meditate just to get well or just to feel that “I must meditate” – but meditation is very important for all of you, that you develop your Sahasrara in such a manner that you imbibe the beauty of your Sahasrara.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation
The word 'Sahaja' in Sanskrit has two components: 'Saha' is 'with' and 'ja' is 'born'.A Dictionary of Buddhism gives the literal translation of Sahaja as "innate" and defines it as "denoting the natural presence of enlightenment (bodhi) or purity."and Yoga means union with the divine and refers to a spiritual path or a state of spiritual absorption. According to a book published by Sahaja Yogis, Sahaja Yoga means spontaneous and born with you meaning that the kundalini is born within us and can be awakened spontaneously, without effort.
