From Nirmala Yoga, March, 1981

Our Position in Sahaja Yoga

In speaking of the Kingdom of Heaven, Christ says in the Gospel: “The last will be first and the first last” - Matt 20.16

and also “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbled himself will be exalted”. Luke 14.11

Seen in the context of Sahaja Yoga this means that those who, according to their own “ego”, are the first are, in fact, outside the Kingdom of Heaven, in which there is no place for the “ego”, while those who are humble and willing to receive the Divine Grace (the Vibrations) shall have a place in the Kingdom; they shall be the first.

We know that there are “categories” if not an hierarchy in Sahaja Yoga. What does this mean? These categories or hierarchy can certainly not be appreciated by our minds. In other words, the “first” will not necessarily be those who first joined Sahaja Yoga, nor those who ‘think’ that they have done a lot for Sahaja Yoga, nor those who consider themselves to be better Sahaja Yogis than others because they have no problems. All these attitudes are generated by a very subtle and even pernicious “ego”.

No, our position in Sahaja Yoga depends on a completely different type of principle; that of our thoughtless awareness when, by the Grace of the Holy Spirit, the Heart, the Self, is truly awakened. Then there is no question of being superior or feeling that one is more advanced, etc… One does not occupy a ‘position’ in the human sense of the term, because the ego has vanished. It is replaced by a state of consciousness pervaded by purity, sweetness and a more authentic and profound understanding of a new Reality which is delivered from the constraints of the ego. This state sends forth the vibrations of love of Mataji, and one surrenders oneself to its support and its guidance. It will also act on our brain when it is time to engage in action. That is our ‘position’ in Sahaja Yoga, which will in effect be established by deepening this stage through an ever greater capacity to absorb Mataji’s Vibrations in order to send Them forth, and through the development of our Selves by our communion with the Collective Self made up by the other Sahaja Yogis.

  • Shri Mataji’s quotes

    You should not feel disgusted with yourself, nor dejected with yourself, nothing. But treat yourself as a separate entity. And Dedication is actually turning back to yourself and looking forward to the Divine personality in you. — Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
