Eternal Present – Circle of Give & Take
“Now we must understand that… when you give me flowers… you are asking for flowers for your life. Supposing we give a flower to God, after all it is God’s own creation.. what are we “giving “?! When you give flowers, (your) Mooladhara gets enlightened.
These flowers when you give to me, they give you two things.. flowers are very important:
– if they are beautiful, then they give to (your) Swadhistana…
– if they are fragrant, they cure your Mooladhara
Now think of it… you are doing (offering) it .. to improve your chakras”.

Yes, sometimes simple gestures from the heart might have a serious impact and act as purifiers on our energy centers (chakras) when both the giver and the receiver are connected to the Source, when both become actually instruments for channeling this universal energy that is here to circulate and sustain the Existence itself.
When one is observing only a segment of this Perpetuum Mobile of energy and considers it as an individual and independent act, yes, then it might look like: ‘receiving’ or ‘giving’, that one takes and one gives.
Actually the Real explanation seems to be so beautifully exposed in the following excerpt:
“So you see when it comes to giving, give it with your full heart. You just feel that love of giving and you feel so happy, because you feel so big about yourself, like an ocean that’s giving so much of clouds and again it is receiving these rivers into it, and again making it into clouds, a sort of a circle of beautiful conversion into beauty after beauty starts, it’s so beautiful.
And that’s what we should try to become, a part of that Circle, which is so beautiful and which is so joy giving, to yourself also.” Lecture in Sydney, 1981 (Shri Mataji, the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation)
Maybe even when we’re offering an electronic flower,
sometimes with a pinch of humour, this small gesture IF is not empty but is genuinely meaningful, then it acts with a subtle power that is able to open a smile on “one”‘s face or even make “one”‘s heart jolly again.
Hopefully that “one” is you, right here and now…in this Present that we all share.
