All Holy Scriptures uphold the Self as Spirit, for Self is God

“All the Holy Scriptures - Torah, Bible, Qur'n, Upanishads, Vedas, Puranas, Granth Sahib - uphold the Self as Spirit, the essence and presence of the Divine in humans. That is why Jesus answered them in the temple,” Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?.” Self-realization is a slow process of confirming the same divinity i.e., realizing the Divine within humans. No external images, rituals or human contacts whatsoever are needed for this inner journey to realize and meditate in the Kingdom of God within. The Self also overcomes the deep divisions and sheer ignorance that ail all religious and spiritual organizations, including Sahaja Yoga, for Self is God. And when you maintain Silence on your Self you are always in meditation, prayer and contact with God Almighty!"

Dear devotees of the Adi Shakti,

Namaste - i bow to the Self that resides in you!

So what can we make out of Jesus' claim that"Ye are gods"? What has it got to do with second birth (Kundalini awakening)? What is their relationship with Shri Mataji's Self-realization? What is the Self actually, and how is it realized? To answer these questions i have quoted Brian Hodgkinson:

The Self as Spirit

Vedanta accepts this logical introduction to the enquiry into the self. Self as subject should never be confused with any object. Anything that the self observes cannot be self. Can anything positive then be said of it? The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad has a great deal to say about the self. For example:

The Essence of Vedanta by Brain Hodgkinson
“This Self is nearer than all else, dearer than son, dearer than wealth, dearer than anything. If a man call anything dearer than Self, say that he will lose what is dear, of certainty he will lose it; for Self is God. Therefore one should worship Self as Love. Who worships Self his love shall never perish ... This Self is the Lord of all beings; as spokes are knit together in the hub, all things, all gods, all men, all lives, are bodies, are knit together in that Self.” (pp. 121, 135)

“He wanted every form, for He wanted to show Himself; as a magician He appears in many forms, He masters hundreds of thousands of powers. He is those powers; those millions of powers. He is Spirit; without antecedent, without precedent, without inside, without outside; omnipresent, omniscient. Self is Spirit. That is revelation.' (p. 136)

The connection between these two passages lies in the assertion that self is spirit. Self is dear, self is to be worshipped, self is love, because it is spirit. What can be observed is material. Things in space, including human bodies, are material, made of gross elements; things in the mind are subtle, made of finer material and observable as imagined objects or thoughts, feelings and emotions; but the witness of them all, of all materiality, is of a different order. It is spirit. To know that spirit is revelation. To know that spirit is not to know an object; it is to realize that one is spirit.

The Self also overcomes the deep divisions and sheer ignorance that ail all religious and spiritual organizations, including Sahaja Yoga, for Self is God. And when you maintain Silence on your Self you are always in meditation, prayer and contact with God Almighty!

i quote Shri Mataji (23 June 1980):

“But do you have your self-esteem? If you have then where should be your attention? It should be on your Self. Where is your Self now? It is God Almighty; it's part of that Great Primordial Being. Your attention should be on that.

After realization your attention should be in your heart, on your spirit which is the part of God Almighty. If your attention is on your spirit you will be amazed how your attention will act.”

“When you are resurrected, and you become realised souls, one has to understand that now your movement is inward. You are moving towards your roots, and not outside. So, whatever was the endeavour before realisation has to be changed. The direction has to be changed and that point, mostly, we miss.”
