A beautiful woman born in India in 1923 named Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi arrived here on Earth in a fully realized state and lived in the ashram of Mahatma Gandhi, who often consulted her on spiritual questions. She’s spent her life working for peace, and dis covered a simple method through which all people can receive their self-realization. She teaches Sahaja Yoga, and has never charged for this instruction. She emphasízes the following points, which are a perfect summary on this chapter on connectíng to intentíon:
- You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the power that created you.
- You are not this body, you are not this mind, you are the Spirit . . . this is the greatest truth.
- You have to know your Spirit … for without knowing your Spirit, you cannot know the truth.
- Meditation is the only way you can grow. There is no other way out. Because when you meditate, you are in silence. You are in thoughtless awareness. Then the growth of awareness takes place.
Connect to the power that created you, know that you are that power, commune with that power íntimately, and meditate to allow that growth of awareness to take place. A great summary indeed, from a fully realized being, no less.
