What is Maya? What is Maya created by God versus Maya created by Human Beings?!
Shri Mataji: “So they say that this maya is created by God. No! Maya that God has created is this world, this whole universe and all that but this illusive life is created by human beings. Absolutely, through their projections of their brains and mental capacities, they have projected.. So this is one of the illusions that human beings have created is what you call is money maya and, in that, comes also the wealth, possessions, materialism. Everything is created by human beings and this creation of materialism then boils you down to a personality which is involved in all sinful act. Anything is all right because if money is all right, materialism is all right.
That Illusiveness is called Maya. And this illusiveness appeals to many people. Appeals — that’s the point I’m worried about. Something is illusive, then they go on running after that like a mirage and ultimately they are destroyed.” (Lecture on Mahamaya, Auckland, New Zealand, 1994)
Shri Mataji: “We should not get lost into the Maya. If you are a Witness you can see the Maya, how it works. Our Brain should become a Sakshi, should become a witness .. witness the (divine) play. You should not take anything as something extremely serious. When you look at things as something that you are watching a drama .. So to reach that state you have to become Thoughtlessly Aware. Because we think from our brain. And this brain goes on thinking, thinking, creating a Maya and playing into Maya.”
Shri Mataji: “Now here it is when you are a realized soul you should see through the Maya. So in your brain there should be no worry, there should be no stress. There should be no problem. Because you are just watching everything in Thoughtless Awareness. So when you are thoughtless awareness, means when your brain is just in the state of witness you understand everything that is Divine.”
The above 2 excerpts are from an amazing lecture offered by the founder of sahaja yoga meditation – Shri Mataji: Lecture on Elightened Brain in New York, Oct 1994.
