The Rock of Innocence – Connection to Root Chakra (Mooladhara) & Lord Ganesha & Highest Thing
“It’s all on a shifty sand we are standing, all the time, and your mother is another one who tries all kinds of tricks. 🙂 The reason is, I want you to Stand on Rocks. And this Rock is emitting Love, is emitting that Divine Love. And the Joy of that Love is really so Beautiful.”
says Shri Mataji – greatgrandmother and founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation
“If you cannot love children, you cannot love anything. I have not come across anyone so far who says that they don’t love children—luckily! But maybe some might say: ‘We love flowers.’ Why? Why do you love flowers? Because they are innocent. Because that beauty of innocence is within them.”
“ You love Nature—why?! Because it is Innocent. But the greatest Innocence is seen among human beings who are Sahaja Yogis!
It is easy to be cunning, very easy to be cunning. It’s very easy to be clever. But to be wise, one should understand the beauty of being innocent. Possibly one may say: “Mother, one can get exploited if you are innocent.” No-one can exploit an innocent person. They may believe that they have done this, they have been very aggressive and all that, but they cannot. It is like a rock. It is like a rock that is not prevailed by any ocean of anger or any kind of revenge. It’s the rock that is being looked after and nourished by Shri Ganesha. I’ve told you before also, that the innocence within us never gets destroyed. Very surprising. You may be a sinner, you may be a very cruel person, you might be anything: but it does not get, it cannot get it. After innocence. It is a very, very secret thing that is put in us by the Divine. We play with our innocence very much. We think that by behaving any way we like, “It’s alright, after all it’s my own desire, my wish.” And we’ll go on, we go on all the time reducing our power, or we can say the hiding, or covering our power of innocence. And we think that we have done a great job, that we have be-fooled all the people by our tricky nature. This tricky nature cannot give you any satisfaction. It is not self-sufficient.”
“When you try to trick someone, this trick works on you, it is repelled on you, and destroys your faith in Innocence—which is the greatest faith, the greatest help or, we should say, the greatest power on this Earth.”
Amazing Meditation Experience & Recognition Captured in Stone @ First Burlington Class
“Those people who do not respect their Innocence because they think it makes you weak, have not seen the power of innocence—how it works, how it acts. But, so far, I think the human beings are not conscious of the power, power of innocence. But it is the highest thing to be innocent. And it acts as if the whole understanding, whole working-out of the being is so beautifully achieved.”

Are We Building on the Rock of the Spirit? Why Should We?!
“But the beauty within you is that you are absolutely independent of anybody else. You depend only upon yourself, upon the source of your Spirit, the joy of your Spirit. You don’t expect others to give you joy.
Supposing somebody tomorrow comes and abuses me. I’ll say, ‘All right. It doesn’t matter, never touches me because I am with myself. He is saying these things. He will suffer or not suffer. That’s not my department.’ 🙂 When you start depending only upon yourself, just imagine a house which is standing on rocks. Like that, you are. Try to feel it. Feel the rock within you. Try to understand. You are not going to behave like other people. It’s all right, people who have built their houses on sands have to worry. Not we. We have built on rocks. So we have to be very courageous. You have to be very bold. At the same time, extremely humble.”(Diwali Talk, 1991, 10 November,Cabella, Italy)
Standing on Rocks of Enlightened Faith & Sahaj Miracles – Jesus Christ as Ideal Model
“So now, you see in Sahaja Yoga, many people who are very steady, who are upright, who are very valuable, they are like the people who know they are standing on the rocks. But those who are not yet so steady are the people, they think they are still dwindling on some sort of a funny waters of this life. The rocks are big there, standing on the rocks and also that has come out of faith, that nothing can disturb us, that faith, (that) nothing can trouble us. As far as Christ is concerned, naturally, I mean, He knew everything, so He was sure about it. He never bothered. He never dwindled. He never doubted. He knew that, that He is the son of God. That was the fact that He knew very well and He never challenged it, He never doubted it, nothing. It is so and that’s why He, I say, was standing on the rocks. This faith is to be understood. This is an enlightened faith. Supposing I have someone on whom I have faith. Naturally I will give him all the work. I will trust everything. I’ll keep the keys with him, or the money with him, never doubt such a person. In the same way, if you have faith, faith in yourself, faith in Sahaja Yoga where you are established. You will be surprised how things will work out, how life will improve and you will be standing on the rocks. You’ll feel that way. You’ll have no doubts. You’ll have no problems, no diseases. So, this is such a state, only with faith. But now, this faith, how do you get? The problem is how to get to this faith. There’s no course about it. There’s no literature about it. There’s no lecture about it, but there is an Awakening within you which will ask this ‘What am I,’ this awakening, ‘What am I? What have I achieved?’ See, this will question, ‘What is it that I have achieved? What have I got out of Sahaja Yoga?’ All these questions will come to you. But if you have faith, not the blind, but the enlightened, which is established by many miracles in life, many things in life. Small, small things you’ll find, there have been miracles — small, small things. There have been Miracles even in big things, in so many things where you never expected this will happen.”
(excerpt from a Talk on Easter – Rome, Italy, 1993 with Miracle Photo – See the Orbit of Light at the level of the Third Eye chakra – this appeared during a Collective Footsoak in lake Ontario, in Oakville after the Experience India Public Program – sahaja Yogis were standing under the beautiful cooling moonlight, reciting Mantras & Meditating)
“You are the foundation stones of this work, who should be solid, dedicated people, otherwise the whole building will remain unstable. When you slip over in petty things, how will your Pettiness bring you Greatness?! If you will try with your pettiness to become great it will be like a frog trying to become a bull. If you do not have the strength of great heart, then what work can I do? You must enter into this ocean of joy in everything. In every city, at every time, at every function, the waves of joy will be continuously rising through you because you have become submerged into the Ocean of Joy.”
** hope you’ve enjoyed the connections and the symbolical reference to Rocks and Stones. Today is a Tuesday – the week day associated to the Root chakra, that is connected to Mother Earth, plus, particularly this year at our meditation classes & seminars in Halton and Huron area, we started to feel the magnetism coming from such tiny parts of Mother Earth and this article was born from the (re)-discovered Love for the energy and beauty emanated by Rocks & Stones. Please, drop a comment if you feel to “talk”/share/answer to this article. All above represent excerpts from various talks of Shri Mataji that was a motherly teacher and The Rock of Love & Spiritual Support all her lifetime for so many around the world..
