Sahajayoga meditation - Inward Journey

Sahajayoga Meditation - Is a unique process, very simple, easy to understand and implement. If one does it regularly on daily basis , his inner journey will bring about total transformation, worth experiencing and enjoying throught the life.


Meditation is a state of consciousness which is beyond the mind. We cannot do meditation, we have to be in meditation. It is a state of pure awareness, where we are alert and fully aware, but without any thought. It is normally difficult to have no thought in one's mind, but our Kundalini helps us a lot to achieve this state effortlessly, once it is awakened through Self Realization. Sahaja Yoga enables us to achieve precisely that.
In a lecture delivered in Sydney in March 1983, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, talks about man's seeking for this lost inner paradise of eternal happiness, and what is at the end of the journey.

The enjoyment of life is only possible if the world could get connected to the spirit… You become the Spirit as Christ has said in simple words that
you have to be born again
Divinity is not a fashion. It is the way of life. It is the need of your being.
You have to become that
"Now you all have realized by this time that within us lies the peace, the beauty, the glory of our being. There's an ocean of all that. We can not seek it outside. We have to go within - what they call "in the meditative state" [where] you seek it, you enjoy it. Like when you are thirsty, you go to a river, or you go to an ocean, and try to quench your thirst. But even the ocean cannot give you sweet water. So, how can anything that is spread outside give you that deep thing that is within you. You are trying to find it outside, where it does not lie. It is within us, absolutely within us. It is so simple because it is your own. It is within your reach. Just there. Whatever you have been doing - going out to find the joy, the so-called joy, so-called happiness, so-called glory of worldly powers and worldly possessions - you have to reverse it back, the whole thing. You have to project 'within yourself.' It was not wrong that you went out. You should not feel sorry for what you have done so far […]
It has worked in so many people, that you have entered into that subtler understanding. Some people are only at a mental level, maybe, doesn't matter. Maybe some are only at a physical level that they can feel it. Doesn't matter. But you are on the correct lines. You are moving correctly.
Try to meditate. Meditate more, so that you reach that inner being. And this inner being is the vast ocean of bliss which exists in every one of us. [It is] the vast flood of light, that floods everybody's inner beauty. So to approach it, you have to go "within" yourself - by denying things which are against it, against your movement.
Sometimes the wind can be very very strong for you to not understand that the glory of God is within - but turn back. Every movement remember, that your movement has to be inward. When you move inward, you forget the ideas of your outer glories […]
It is an individual journey towards God.
When you meditate and when you reach there, then you become collective. Before that it's an "absolute individual journey within". It's absolutely individual journey!
You should be able to see this; that in this journey nobody is your relation. Nobody is your friend. You are absolutely alone. 'Absolutely alone'. You have to move alone within yourself. Don't hate anyone. Don't be irresponsible, but in meditative mood you are alone. No one exists there. You alone. And once you enter into that ocean then the whole world becomes your whole family. The whole world is your own manifestation. All the children becomes your children. And you treat all people with equal understanding
The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside 'your' spirit and start seeing through eyes of the spirit. There's such calm, such peace, such bliss within you. You have to be ready for that journey. That journey is alone in your meditativeness. And the more you find something in your meditation, the more you want to go and distribute it to others. That has to be. If that does not come into you then it has not worked out; there is no purity; there is some sort of a bias. In that individual pursuit, whatever you find, you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of the person who has been really meditative. The one who has been meditative and has not been able to distribute what he has found is cheating himself and cheating others as well. Because that joy that you receive in your meditation has to be distributed. Has to be given. Has to be shown. It should flow in your being as the light radiates from every illumined lamp. You don't have to take a vow to say that this is an enlightened light. In the same way a saint should not have to be certified that he is a saint. The depth you achieve within yourself spreads all over. It is such an action and reaction. The deeper you become, the radiation is much more. [A] simple, very ordinary person, uneducated person, can be like that. We have you know, one gentleman called as Varick in Bombay. He is an old man, and is so deep. He radiates love. He's so meditative. You don't have to spend too much time on meditation. But whatever time you spend, whatever you gain, has to be visible outside - how you radiate and how you give it to others. […] Everyone of you has to decide for oneself."
