The key to the absolute truth

Please enjoy the following video in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, explains how we can connect with our true Self. This public program talk is dubbed into German and was held on the 19th July 1994 in Vienna, Austria.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and it cannot compromise with you. It is, it has been, it will be the same. Whatever I have to tell you tonight you need not accept it blindfolded. We have had already very big problems with these blind faiths. You should have an open mind like a scientist and treat this talk as a hypothesis. But if it is proved then you have to accept as honest people. Because it is for your benevolence, it is for the benevolence of your country, it is for the benevolence of the whole world. The truth is that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, intelligence, ego or your conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit. We see beautiful flowers around us, it’s actually a miracle. But we take it for granted. If we ask a doctor, “Who runs our heart?” he will say, “The autonomous nervous system.” But who is this ‘auto’? This they cannot answer. And who does all this living work? Who brought forth our evolution? There is no answer.

Joy is the nectar of the Spirit

[display_podcast]

Spirit is the freedom, is the free being within us. It is detached. It cannot be killed. It cannot be thrown away. It cannot be burnt. It is eternal. Anant. It is eternal. That Spirit is joy. That Spirit is the source of joy. That emits joy. Joy is different from happiness and unhappiness.

Ego, when it feels pampered, it feels happy. “I” like it. This “I” business. Is ego pampering – that is no joy. Because you like to drink today and tomorrow you don’t like to have a headache. It has the double side of “I like” and “I don’t like”. You like something through your ego, dislike through your super ego. So it is a one coin and there are two faces, one is happiness and another is unhappiness. Joy is beyond that. Joy is a drama, seer, is a witness. You see a drama. You know it’s a drama going on. You just watch it as a drama. You’re not involved and you are seeing it and enjoying it. You are crying if you seeing something, you’re weeping but you know you are not that, it’s a drama. Seer, the witness. Your Spirit is the witness and when you become the Spirit you become the witness. You become the witness.

For example, you are seeing something through a window. There is something in the window, for example. Now, you enter inside the room and you see through the window. Your conditioning is like one wave arising in you as a thought, which comes from the past. It rises again and another thought comes up and goes in the past. First the past thought is there and then another future thought is there, it disappears. You see the thought rising but you can’t see the disappearing of the thought. In between that is the present. That’s the place is established, that present is established when your attention becomes enlightened by the Spirit. Either you think of the future or of the past. But I say now, at this moment, at the present, you cannot stand there because your Spirit is not enlightened. Because Spirit is the present. When you get your realization, you find that you are not thinking of the future or the past, you are just enjoying. Continue Reading »
