Shakti is not the possession of a male deity, as She is the consort of none, but the energy of all.
"SHAKTI: power, energy; the absolute power of the universe, identical with rather than an attribute of the Goddess. Shakti as a name of the Goddess represents the supreme cosmic energy, creating, maintaining, and ultimately destroying the universe, only to recreate worlds anew. In the Devi Gita, Shakti is not the possession of a male deity, as She is the consort of none, but the energy of all."

Shri Mataji, On Whom Do You Meditate?
Kash was now daily meditating with all the Heavenly Hosts, including those Messengers who came to Earth and gave rise to the great religions of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism — Shri Jesus, Radha, Krishna, Sita, Rama, Muhammad, Buddha, and Nanak. It had already been absolutely ascertained that this Divine Unity was meditating daily on the Great Adi Shakti Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in the Kingdom of the Spirit. The absolute reverence of these Divine Messengers of God Almighty to His Spirit Shri Samanadhika-Varjita Shri Nirmala Devi was self-evident by these observations:
- She was the only One who sat on the Supreme Throne while the rest always sat on the soft clouds;
- She was the only One who always gave orders to start and end meditation and all other matters;
- She was the only One who wore a crown on special occasions;
- She was the only One who always had the Light above Her. This Light was never seen elsewhere;
- She was the only One to whom all mantras were attributed;
- She was the only One on whom all inhabitants in the Kingdom of God were meditating.
All Sahaja Yogis on Earth were meditating on Her in their Sahasraras. But on whom was Shri Maha Avatar Shri Nirmala Devi meditating? Since She was also meditating, just like the Sahaja Yogis and the Divine Unity, it became obvious that She may be meditating on a superior power.
Kash's father was far from God-Realization and his mind busy trying to fill the wide gaps and discrepancies between the dogmas of religious institutions and the absoluteness of the Ultimate Reality of the Spiritual Realm. Likewise, his conditioned mind could not accept doubtlessly the concept of a Feminine Power. God had to be a masculine force. Therefore, the Great Adi Shakti had to be meditating on God.
Kash was told to verify the Truth from the Great Adi Shakti. He meditated and reached Her in his Sahasrara, and posed this priceless question: "Shri Mataji, on whom do You meditate?"
The Great Primordial One answered:
"I meditate on all those who meditate on Me."
Shri Dhyana-Dhyatr-Dhyeya-Rupa Shri Nirmala Devi
Montreal, Canada — June 27, 1994
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi replied that She meditates with all those who meditate with Her, which includes the entire Divine Unity. This absolutely confirmed that there is no Higher Power, that the Universal Self is One — the Holy Spirit and the Universal Soul are One; the Ruh and Allah are One; the Adi Shakti and Sadashiva are One; The Mother and the Father are One. It is the Feminine Power that is the All-Pervading Power. This is abundantly reflected in all Nature, which creates, nourishes and sustains all. The feminine Holy Spirit is the Power of God that creates, nourishes and sustains all. That is why Shri Jesus exclaimed, just before being crucified: "Behold the Mother!"That is why all the Messengers of God meditate on Her.

Samanadhika-Varjita (198th): None to equal or excel Her. She remains Supreme.
Dhyana-Dhyatr-Dhyeya-Rupa (254th): Of the form of meditation, meditator and meditated, i.e., Triputi.
The followers of the Vedas, the Bible and the Koran, standing at Your Door, meditate on You.
Uncounted are those who fall at Your Door.
Brahma meditates on You, as does Indra on his throne.
Shiva and Vishnu, and their incarnations chant the Lord's Praise with their mouths,
As do the Pirs, the spiritual teachers, the prophets and the Shaykhs, the silent sages and the seers.
Adi Granth (verse 2, p. 518.)
Panca-Brahmasana-sthita (58th): She is seated above the Panca Brahmas, who are Brahma, Visnu, Rudra, Isana and Sadasiva. This shows Her Ultimate status as Reality, being the Highest 'Sadevasaumyedam agra asit.' It also alludes to Her position in our body. The Brahma Granthi is above the two Chakras — Muladhara and Svadhisthana. The Vishnu-Granthi is above Manipura and Anahata. The Rudra-Granthi is above the Visuddha and Ajna. From Ajna to the centre of the skull is the Isvarasthana. Above that is the Dvadasanta the abode of Sadashiva. Above that is seated Sri-Lalita as Chitkala. She is thus seated above all the five Brahmas.
