Part 2 of “The Journey Within” 2019 Program dedicated to Navaratri Festival in Halton
” Only one technique I would prescribe for you .. is that you start with your Heart and end there only.It starts from your Heart, from your Atma (Spirit) and ends in your Atma.Just give up talking about it, just start feeling your Heart;just start feeling your Heart, opening it out — not your mouth so much as your Heart.”(Lecture of Shri Mataji in Lonavala, India, Jan 25, 1982)
On Friday, October 4, 2019 we offered a special event in Oakville – dedicated to Navaratri Festival. Of course, as always it included a profound meditation led by Shivangna from Youth & Art initiatives (Sahaja Yoga Meditation – Halton team). We learned to let our own motherly Kundalini energy work through us effortlessly while we were listening to Kush playing a Raga on Sitar, followed by Shivangna playing another Raga on flute.
We talked about how our Heart opens more when we are detached — how Meditation and the clearing of the Vishuddhi chakra (Throat energy centre) will enable the Yogi qualities to be awakened and Detachment will start manifesting.
ACHIEVE DETACHMENT THROUGH MEDITATION ON HEART
“The Detachment should evolve within.It cannot be forced, but through Meditation you can develop that Detachment within you,which will be Joy giving.If you are becoming the pure Spirit then you are detached, because you are just a reflection, the reflection of God Almighty.All these identifications drop out. Now one may say, ‘How? How to drop it out?’ First (through) Meditation.”
“You should discover about yourself, what’s wrong with you, which side is catching,is it right or left side (left channel or right energy channels are blocked) ?With meditation you can find out: Are you attached to money, business, family, country in a way which is not Sahaja *natural, spontaneous, detached* or to your culture, which is not Sahaja ?! Then try to get rid of this attachment by Meditation.
You know how to get rid of the right and the left (blockages of the lateral energy channels). This attachment will show on your finger tips and you have to see for yourself what *energy* centres you are catching, in which way are you in trouble. Then you can clarify it very simple by taking a very simple Sahaja treatment. Here we fail, that we get attached to something we don’t even think we are getting attached…”
Compassion is like The Sap in the TreeIt is Not Attached
“Compassion is very pure. It’s like the sap in the tree which rises and goes to various parts of the tree and then either it evaporatesor goes down into Mother Earth.It is not attached. If it gets attached to one flower or to one leaf or to one fruit, then the whole Tree will suffer and also the flower will disappear.In Sahaja Yoga people are very adaptable and understand what they should do, but the main thing is Meditation.
“In meditating on your heart on the Shiva Tattwa, on the principle of Shiva (the Spirit within), you can definitely detach andthen the Joy will be maximum.People have interest in say food or in clothes or in house, anything, you can have interest, you should have interest, butin that interest there should be Enlightenmentthat you cannot get attached to it. ”(Lecture of Shri Mataji – founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation during Shivaratri, Feb 26, 1995)
“A Realized Soul is a Detached Personality. He doesn’t say ‘my children, my house’. But he says ‘our children, our house’.He shares all the time.I would say like this, now supposing I have all the powers then I am a capitalist.But I cannot live without distributing it and sharing with you, so I’m a communist. 🙂So a person who is a Realized Soul is the one who lives collectively and only enjoys Collectivity. But at the same time he is detached.
Like a sap in the tree rises, goes to the various parts of the tree, gives sap to the leaves, flowers, fruits, everything and comes back.But if it gets attached to some flower thenthat flower will die in any case,because the tree will die.So, attachment is the death of love. The love you feel for somebody should be just giving love, not to expect anything out of that.You just enjoy giving.”
