To Age Like Sea Glass

I wanted to share this because it fits so well with the practice of Sahaja Yoga.

I want to age like sea glass

by Bernadette Noll

I want to age like sea glass. Smoothed by tides, not broken. I want the currents of life to toss me around, shake me up and leave me feeling washed clean. I want my hard edges to soften as the years pass — made not weak, but supple. I want to ride the waves, go with the flow, feel the impact of the surging tides rolling in and out.

When I am thrown against the shore and caught between the rocks and a hard place, I want to rest there until I can find the strength to do what is next. Not stuck — just waiting, pondering, feeling what it feels like to pause. And when I am ready, I will catch a wave and let it carry me along to the next place that I am supposed to be.

I want to be picked up on occasion by an unsuspected soul and carried along — just for the connection, just for the sake of appreciation and wonder. And with each encounter, new possibilities of collaboration are presented, and new ideas are born.

I want to age like sea glass so that when people see the old woman I’ll become, they’ll embrace all that I am. They’ll marvel at my exquisite nature, hold me gently in their hands and be awed by my well-earned patina. Neither flashy nor dull, just the right luster. And they’ll wonder, if just for a second, what it is exactly I am made of and how I got to be in this very here and now. And we’ll both feel lucky to realize, once again, that we have landed in that perfectly right place at that profoundly right time.

I want to age like sea glass. I want to enjoy the journey and let my preciousness be, not in spite of the impacts of life, but because of them.

When we receive our Kundalini Awakening so many good things will come to us! One of them is that we feel a deeper connection with everything.

“Now, the significance of Mother Earth, we have never understood. Now, look at the Mother Earth! She is the one who produces all kinds of beautiful flowers, of different fragrance, of different nature, color, heights; the trees are different. Trees when they grow up, they grow in such a manner that every leaf of that tree gets the sun.
Look at the Collective Sense which is given to us by this Mother Earth.
We have never realized that this Mother Earth is giving us everything that we want and the sun helps the Mother Earth, co-operates, co-ordinates within you.” ∼ Shri Mataji, 1997

Let us light up the entire universe!

When the soft love of Sahaja Yoga is filled in the lamp of the heart, it is no longer restricted to oneself. When it starts burning with the light of the Spirit, it has the ability to light up the entire universe. ∼ Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1986-1101

The darkest times bring forth the strongest lights. Today we spontaneously came across the Festival of Lights in Newington, CT and found ourselves in the midst of people who offered lanterns with their wishes, prayers and thoughts to the water. It was so special that we wanted to share some impressions from there.

There is a deep connection of Sahaja Yoga with the Mother Earth because the Kundalini is the reflection of the Mother Earth in us which means that with the Kundalini Awakening also the Mother Earth is awakened in us.

“Now whatever you have got from the Mother Earth, you can give, because your Mother Earth is awakened within you now. So you return Her back everything that you got from Her and give it to others: generosity, the greatness of heart, nobility, forgiveness, love, affection, bearing, everything for love.”  ∼ Shri Mataji, 1983-08-21

Martin Luther King Day

From the book ‘Meta Modern Era’ by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

“A benevolent ruler, in the form of a philosopher king (as put forward by Socrates), is the ideal person to be the head of government. Such a person must be an extremely wise, detached personality, without any desire for lust, power and money. There have been such persons in the recent past, people like Mahatma Gandhi, Ataturk Kemal Pasa, Anwar al Sadat, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Ho Chi Minh, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Dag Hammerskjyld, Mujibur Rahman and many others.”

Since 1986, every third Monday of January is observed as Martin Luther King day in the United States. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Jan 15, 1929 – Apr 4, 1968) was an American activist and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement using nonviolent civil disobedience. He became a national icon in the history of American progressivism. On Oct 14, 1964, Dr. King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was directly influenced by Mahatma Gandhi’s testament to the revolutionary power of non-violence. Dr. King argued that the Gandhian philosophy was ‘‘the only morally and practically sound method open to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom’’. vibrations in hand)

You Have Everything Within You

“You have everything within you, that power, like you get lifted up. Like a lotus that rises out of the mire by its own force, you come up and your fragrance fills that mire, and you are amazed at it yourself. First you are identified with that mire, and you think that this is what it is – but it’s not so. When it comes up, that lotus, it spreads its beautiful petals, and the fragrance gives us that personality which spreads all over. And that’s what is going to happen to you. All of you are going to be that lotus which looks hidden, which is absolutely invisible within you, which is going to open out, and the fragrance of your divinity is going to spread.”

“Fragrance is something very innate, even this soil, which we should say has or does not have fragrance; the people have fragrance in their character, in their behaviour, in their understanding and there is peace which they are aspiring.” ~ Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
