Thanksgiving Stories with Bhagavad Geeta & Dreams & Shri Mataji & Friendship
I hope your long weekend has been fun and relaxing.
I wanted to tell you a little about my weekend.
I am trying hard not to duel on what is happening at work.
I feel like I am thinking so much it is almost becoming an obsession.
I am still reading Geeta (Geeta Enlightened) and it is helping me so much! It is almost like it took me this long to read it because it is now that I need to hear and read what this book is trying to tell me.
All weekend when I started to think about work, I would stop and say/think ‘I am not these thoughts or feelings‘.
I read something in the Geeta book about how there are many levels of meditation and on reaching the last comes the ultimate.
“When you obtain that depth you become fragrant“
I kept reading this line over and over.
Every time I had obsessive thoughts I would stop and tell myself not to think, to get above this mind and these thoughts and reach the ultimate. I went to bed and as I was falling asleep, again I started obsessing. I asked Mother (Kundalini as a motherly energy or goddess) to help me stop thinking and obsessing, and I fell asleep.
I dreamt….I was still obsessing…… and then the most incredible thing happened!
I smelled the most intoxicating smell. It is indescribable. It was like new born babies, and fresh rain and I don’t know…..
I felt so comforted! I know it was Shri Mataji!
I woke up in the morning and felt so good. I could remember the smell so vividly in the morning and know I have never smelled anything so heavenly!
I feel like I was visited and comforted in the night.
Just thinking about it makes me want to cry.
Thank you so much for lending me this book!
I hope to have it finished soon and hope the next reader gets as much from this book as I have.
.. especially thank you for being my friend!

– see below an excerpt from the book praised by Liz and see how this excerpt is totally tuned to her fresh experience – truly Sahaj!
“In whatever form of devotion a man of faith worships I strengthen that devotion.” (VII, 21)
“Filled with such faith, he worships that God and obtains his desires. In fact, they are granted by none but myself.” (VII, 22) – Shri Krishna saying in Bhagavad Geeta
Here, Lord Krishna is not talking of blind faith but faith after the experience of the spirit. Then all doubts vanish and the devoted develops absolute faith in the spirit. It is not blind faith. The grace of God is only on the one connected with Him.
Those who claim that they got the direct help of God as a result of their worship or sacrifices live under a myth, because they are not in direct contact with God. Without the union (yoga) whatever one gives in the name of God goes only into the pockets of the priest and their partners. Likewise, their prayer only reach the ears of the self appointed representative of God.
God loves those who desire connection with Him through enlightenments. Shri Mataji says, “After doing the complete manifestation of the human being, the pure desire remains residual and unless it is awakened one cannot feel satisfied because all other desires are impure.”
A milkmaid use to supply milk to a priest living on the other side of a river. Owing to the irregularities of the boat service, she could not supply him the milk punctually. Once, being rebuked for her constant delay, the poor woman replied, “What can I do? I start early from my house, but the boatman is so irregular”. The priest chided, “Woman, they cross the ocean of life by uttering the name of God, and you cannot cross this little river?”
The simple maid followed his advice and, thereafter, the milk supply was never late. One day the same priest enquired of her, “How is it that now you are never late?” The maid promptly answered, “I followed your advice, I cross the river by uttering the Lord’s name and the river gives way”. The priest was taken aback and said, “Can you show me how you cross the river?”
The next day the priest accompanied the maid. The maid began crossing the river by saying the Lord’s name. The priest tried the same but began to drown. The maid turned around and questioned him, “How is it, Sir, that while you utter the Lord’s name with your lips yet your hands are trying to keep you tunic untouched by the water? It seems that you do not fully rely on Him.” The maid was obviously a realized soul and hence the Lord answered her prayers.
Faith is a strange paradox. If you are a realized person and believe in a deity (=divine principle that governs a chakra) then it answers your prayers. How does this happen? When sincerity arises from the innermost core of your being then it touches the deity that resides within and evokes its power. At the physical level, the vibrations of your spirit go into the object of worship and communicate.
If a realized soul puts vibrations in any object be it a carved image of a deity then that object becomes vibrant – it becomes awakened. The dormant becomes dynamic, it becomes a transmitter of cosmic vibrations which transmits to its receptor and thus reinforces it. Healing works through this frequency to catch its vibrations. The lever for tuning in is your own vibrations and its efficiency depends on the purity of your faith. Some ancient temples have such vibrations and you can feel it through you sensitivity.
People who plugged into its circuit have experienced the miracle of wishes coming true. Vibrations can create a circuit; first you give vibrations to an object, then it becomes vibrated and subsequently it emits vibrations.
However, the power of its revibrational intensity depends on the power of the vibrations of the individual who initially transmitted them, because the deities understand the spirit’s language.
