“The Force” Is My Ally

Throughout all cultures and religions we felt that there is something more to life than just the day-to-day business, that there is something beyond our understanding and that it is worth to reach out to it. We have tried many different ways to connect to it, and given various names to it: life, nature, God, Allah, all-pervading power, the Divine, Buddha, Shiva, fate, good luck, the force…

Some had the ability to touch this unknown area, various masters in all cultures and ages and they tried to explain about it and how things would become easier for us – even to the extent that “miracles” can happen – by simply connecting to this power and let it allow to work. I would like to share with you (for me personally a very beautiful and poetic) description of this one power – out of the movie Star Wars. Yoda, a Jedi Master, explains to Luke, his disciple, about “the force”. As the accent may be little bit difficult to understand there is the transcript below.

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me at my size, do you? And where you should not, for my ally is the force – and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the force around you, here between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes, and even between the land and the ship.”

But what is the key to feel this “force” around us, to connect to it? Do we have to be magical beings to be able to feel something that others don´t? Well, not really. As it is we are already magical beings. Just look at it from where we came from, how – out of nothingness – everything was created, how out of dead matter life started to evolve. So when we feel that there must be something more to us and to life than we are aware of, then we are totally right.

It all begins with the awakening of our inner energy. It is the moment where we receive a new awareness, a wind in the hands and over the head, a deeper intuition that guides us in new and fresh directions. We may find new places within full of hidden treasures, and we may suddenly know things without knowing why we know. It is the beginning of a new journey, a journey to ourselves where we find everything else.

A Simple 10-Minutes-Meditation

  1. Awaken your Inner Energy:
    Here is a guided meditation (approx. 10 Min.) to awaken your Inner Energy by the founder of Sahaja Meditation, Shri Mataji.  If you went through it already skip step 1). When your Inner Energy is activated it will stay so, there is no need to repeat the affirmations (although you can do so if you like).

     
  2. At the beginning and the end of each meditation we do what we call “raising the energy” and give ourselves “a shield of protection”.
    Here is a nice animation how to do it: charlie.swf
    You can also find a detailed description in our Meditation Tips on page 4 and 5: Meditation Tips
  3. The following guided meditation is about 10 minutes long – please keep your eyes open (at least for the first time) as the instructions are in written form.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment. For me the greatest reward is to see people grow in their spiritual awareness – to become aware how unique and precious each and everyone is, how much more potential we carry in us without even knowing it or being able to connect to it. If this blog can be of any help to find a way to these hidden treasures inside I will feel truly rewarded… but the real award has to be given to Shri Mataji who worked relentlessly for her vision of an enlightened society. Whatever is written on this blog originated from her knowledge that she gave freely to everyone…

    • It was a wonderful reminder for me, too 🙂 It just describes it so beautifully – this life force that is aware and acting and creating… and it is real, not only a fiction! That is the greatest part of it!

    • Thank you for your kind comment – it is so enjoyable to share all my experiences, but it is even more joy-giving when people appreciate it… I do believe the more people come to know themselves and their inner beauty, the better our world will become. If we enjoy ourselves, we also start to enjoy everyone else, and be more patient with those who have not found their inner balance, yet
