How Meditation Happens in Sahaja Yoga
Does This Happen?
In Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's own words, "Everyday we see seeds sprouting, flowers
blooming, fruits ripening, but we do not want to think how it happens. There is a
power that does this work, it is the all pervading power of Divine Love. Now the
time has come to feel this power through the instrument within us. This instrument
has no use unless it is connected to the mains. We do not know our potential,
our beauty, but once this connection with the mains is established,
we will be surprised at the dynamic results."
At the outset we have to understand that this connection is not mental.
Through religion this connection cannot be made because religion also is
mental. However, human awareness can be developed to a higher dimension
through Sahaja Yoga which is not a mental projection. It is a
becoming. This is the last step in our evolution. Whatever we have achieved
in our evolution has to manifest through our central nervous system.
When the foetus is about 2 to 3 months old in the mother's womb, columns of
rays of consciousness emitted through the all pervading power of Divine Love,
pass through the brain to enlighten it. The shape of the brain being prism-like,
the column of rays falling on it gets refracted into four diverse channels
corresponding to the four aspects of the nervous system. They are (see the
section on Chakras and Channels):
- Sympathetic nervous system - right side
- Sympathetic nervous system - left side
- Parasympathetic nervous system
- Central nervous system
The subtle energy enters through the centers in the brain and precipitates
on its way to six more centers called chakras. The residual energy
then settles down in three and a half coils in the triangular bone placed
at the end of the spinal cord (sacrum bone), known as Kundalini.
The fundamental of this living force is self-organization, self-regeneration
and ascent. Through self-organization it sustains and protects. Self-regeneration
is its innate ability to renew, heal, balance and recycle. Ascent is its
capacity to transcend the mind and myth and attain collective consciousness."
