Let us answer to hate with our united love

William Blake was a poet, painter, printmaker and visionary in the 18th century. Throughout his life his poems and paintings express a notion of universal humanity, abhorring any form of racism or other -isms.

In the poem “The Little Black Boy” I found these lines especially meaningful:

“And thus I say to little English boy.
When I from black and he from white cloud free,
And round the tent of God like lambs we joy”

Let us all stand up together against any form of racism, let the anger we feel give us strength to building up something new, something better, let us all stand united against the forces which want to divide us and respond to any hate with our united love.
We are all one human family!
With love, Angi

The Little Black Boy by WILLIAM BLAKE

My mother bore me in the southern wild,
And I am black, but O! my soul is white;
White as an angel is the English child:
But I am black as if bereav’d of light.

My mother taught me underneath a tree
And sitting down before the heat of day,
She took me on her lap and kissed me,
And pointing to the east began to say.

Look on the rising sun: there God does live
And gives his light, and gives his heat away.
And flowers and trees and beasts and men receive
Comfort in morning joy in the noonday.

And we are put on earth a little space,
That we may learn to bear the beams of love,
And these black bodies and this sun-burnt face
Is but a cloud, and like a shady grove.

For when our souls have learn’d the heat to bear
The cloud will vanish we shall hear his voice.
Saying: come out from the grove my love & care,
And round my golden tent like lambs rejoice.

Thus did my mother say and kissed me,
And thus I say to little English boy.
When I from black and he from white cloud free,
And round the tent of God like lambs we joy:

Ill shade him from the heat till he can bear,
To lean in joy upon our fathers knee.
And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair,
And be like him and he will then love me.

One Human Family

Who can watch events unfolding in our country and remain unaffected? It is heartbreaking to see. We are One human family.

When we meditate, we connect with our Spirit, the pure and eternal essence of ourselves. The power of Spirit is collective, there is no exclusion or differentiation. The kundalini does not distinguish between races, colors, genders, ages – it is a universal force of love.

When the kundalini rises and the mind becomes still, we reach a state of awareness known as collective consciousness. In this state, all boundaries disappear.

Let’s meditate as ONE.

The More You Give The More You Receive

One of the things that you experience with Sahaja Yoga Meditation is that the more you give the more you receive. Now, what does this mean because, after all we do not give any money to purchase our spirituality?

If you have attended any of our meditations, in person or online, if you have felt a cool (or sometimes warm) breeze coming out of your head, then you can already give this gift to others by simply holding your hand over the head of the person until you feel a cool or warm breeze coming out of their head.
Clipboard01Often paintings of Saints and prophets were shown holding the hand over the head of a person. That is because regardless of what spiritual practice we follow we are all still built in the same way – we all have the same red blood, and we all have the same sacred energy in us which has to be awakened to take the next step towards our connection with the Divine where we stop believing and start knowing (you will find the reference in all scriptures, that you have to be born twice, once in the flesh, then in the spirit).
The gift of Shri Mataji to humankind was to make it available for all of us. No need anymore to retreat into a monastery or into the wilderness of the Himalayas. We can have it right here and now, in our own living room to make this very normal day-to-day life more and more spiritual and with it find our deeper meaning.
Daily meditation is the key to have deeper experiences. Sharing it is like putting the 7-miles-boots on – for those who do not know the story – with 1 step you can cover 7 miles.
Therefore you see us all so enthusiastically sharing it with everyone because apart from the joy to enrich other lives with such a tremendous knowledge and experience we also receive so much.
In the Divine realms things do work a little bit differently and that is one of them! Give and you will receive! The more you give away, the richer you will become – spiritually of course, but you will find that also all of your financial and worldly problems will suddenly be taken care of in miraculous ways.
If you do not feel yet so confident (and I get that totally because it took me some time to feel confident enough to share it) then you can share the below video which was recorded on the 5th May in celebration of 50 years of Sahaja Yoga Meditation where throughout the day there were guided meditations to awaken this inner energy. Show one of the 11 meditations in this video to others, then hold your hand over their head and see if you can feel their energy coming through. You will find a lot of joy doing it!

Wishing you deep meditations! Angelika

5th May – A PIVOTAL MOMENT

Excerpts/ by ShriMataji.org

On the 5th of May, 1970, in the seaside town of Nargol on the West coast of India near Mumbai, a singularly important event took place –
the opening of the Sahasrara, the energy centre of the limbic area.

Shri Mataji’s discovery was and is unique. The opening of the Sahasrara is a moment of pure transformation, and it provides a method for human beings to reach beyond their limitations and to connect with something greater. The event and the awareness it provided was what she had been waiting for.

“I was seeking the ways and methods,” she explained, “working it out inside myself through my own style of meditation in the sense that I would work out all the permutations and combinations. When I met one person, I would see what problems that person had and how they could overcome them. I would try to study that person internally.”

Shri Mataji knew that the key to understanding the human dilemma lay in the ancient knowledge of the subtle body. This body beyond the physical is real, composed of channels, energy centres and a primal energy source known as Kundalini. The functions and structure mirror the physical system known to science, but on a subtler level.

“I could see all the things that were going on,” she remembered. “That was the day, somehow or other, I said I must open the last chakra.”

This chakra or energy centre is known in Sanskrit as Sahasrara, with its seat in the limbic area of the brain. The opening of this energy centre was the trigger that would set everything in motion, a gateway to truth.

“I was all alone and I felt very good. There was no one around to say a word. And then, in meditation, I felt that the time had arrived when the Sahasrara must be opened. At the moment I desired for the opening of the Sahasrara, what I noticed was that the Kundalini rose like a telescope within me, opening one after the other, traveling upwards. It was like the colour of molten, red-hot iron.

“Then I saw the external structure of the Kundalini that kept rising up, creating sounds at each chakra. The Kundalini rose up to pierce the Brahmarandra.”

The Brahmarandra is the fontanel bone area at the top of the head. The experience Shri Mataji described was that of self-realization, the blossoming of knowledge and awareness that so many desire. She was talking about a destiny that so many seek, the prize usually associated with years of dedication and labour.

“I felt at that moment whatever energy was there above suddenly entered within me like a cool breeze from every direction. I saw the whole thing open and a big torrential rain of breeze started flowing through my head all over. I felt I was lost now, I was no more. It is only the grace that was there. I saw it completely happening to me.”

Shri Mataji knew that this experience of self-realization, this higher knowledge, had to be shared with the world.

“It was then I realized that there was no harm in starting the work. The confusion was over. At last the time had come. There was nothing to fear. This ultimately had to be done. I had come to this world for this purpose only, to awaken the collective consciousness in human beings. I thought, until people receive their self-realization or understand their own Self, this task will be impossible. Whatever else one would have tried to do in this world would be of no use at all.”

Shri Mataji described how her spiritual work began. “I worked it out on an old lady who knew me well. When she received her realization I was then satisfied. I felt many others could also get their realization. It was easy to give realization to one person. It was very easy to make one person aware, but to work it out on a collective level on the masses, some more work was needed.
Everyone had to receive the benefit with a single realization, but it is true these types of workings had never been done before on a collective level. I had achieved all this through meditation.”

Her work continued quietly for many years at a grassroots level.

“No one ever knew about the powers that I had within. No one knew me nor had any idea about me.”

Nor were most people prepared for what she was saying. Her message, both revolutionary and daring, was also a fundamental challenge to most humans’ understanding of themselves.

“But when the Kundalini was awakened in that lady,” Shri Mataji recalled, “I felt that some kind of a subtle power had entered into her. Then twelve more got their realization. They were astonished as their eyes started shining. They started realizing and seeing everything clearly by the power of a unique sensitivity that entered into them, by which they could feel everything.”

Through self-realization, people became their true Self. They realized what they had not known before. They began to see themselves in each other. And with that, true integration began.

“I realized one thing for certain, that these twelve people had twelve different natures and somehow by sitting with them, they should be told how the power of light that the spirit possesses should be integrated,” she said. “It is like when we thread flowers into a single garland with the help of a needle… When they received their realization, then I noticed that within them, within everyone, it was getting integrated into a single string one after the other.

“I started with one lady. Then gradually, many others started getting realization. Gradually the work improved and people found that this is the way we can transform ourselves. It was established that Sahaja Yoga is something very important.”

“… so that is what it is. Sahaja Yoga is something one has to experience.”
