An Olive, neither of the East nor of the West
The Olive Tree
An Olive, neither of the East nor of the West,
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal,
Proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river,
Was there the Tree of Life,
Which bare twelve manner of fruit every month:
And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
A breath which comes from this world shakes the branches of the
Tree of Life,
Which spreads the fragrance of the future world in this world,
And brings the holy souls alive.
These souls come up waking each other ...
And the Tree of Life rejoices.

There is a tree, the root of Transmigration, the Asvattha Tree everlasting.
Its branches spread from earth to heaven, and the powers of nature give them
Its buds are the pleasures of the senses.
Far down below, its roots stretch into the world of men, binding a mortal
through selfish actions.
Men do not see the changing form of that tree, nor its beginning, nor its end,
nor where its roots are.
But let the wise see, and with the strong sword of dispassion let him cut this
strong-rooted tree, and seek that path wherefrom those who go never return.
Such a man can say: 'I go for the refuge of that Eternal Spirit from whom the
stream of creation came at the beginning.
Because the man of pure vision, without pride or delusion, in liberty from the
chains of attachments, with his soul ever in his inner Spirit, all selfish
desires gone, and free from the two contraries known as pleasure and pain, goes
to the abode of Eternity.
Bhagavad Gita 15:1-5
"Another important point which Krishna made is
that roots of the Tree of Human Awareness are in the brain. As such, if
awareness descends or grows downwards towards the lower energy centres
like Mooladhara, the persons get involved in too much sex. So
instead of evolution of awareness there is descent. So for the nourishing
the Tree of Human Awareness ... is only possible after Kundalini
awakening and piercing the anterior fontanel area. Only then
can take place."

[294th]: The Queen of the Universe consisting of fourteen Bhuvanas
or the Deity of the Mantra-bija.)
the 15th Chapter of the Bhagavad Gita there is a description of the
'Imperishable Tree' ... He who knows this Tree knows the truth. This
Tree is existing in the structure and function of the human body and
nervous system. One must know and climb this paradoxical Tree to arrive at
the truth ...
It cannot be understood intellectually, but only
through progressive spiritual awakening, for spiritual understanding
always dawns in a way which is paradoxical and irrational to the faculty
of the intellect. This same Tree is called the 'Tree of Life' in the
Kaballah and the 'Tree of Knowledge' in the Bible. Its understanding
forms the basis of both Christian and Judaic religious traditions, but
unfortunately it has been completely misunderstood by and large, for a
very long time."

Enlightened interpretation of note 3001
The Tree of Life
This Tree of Life (human subtle system) bears an Olive, the Fruit of Absolute
Truth and Supreme Knowledge in the form of His Spirit. Only those seeking the
Truth of Allah can taste this mystical Olive, for it neither belongs to the
Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism or Sikhism nor the Western ones of
Judaism, Christianity or Islam. Those who seek to find it in religious
institutions will never succeed as it does not exist in any of them, but is
within their own beings. (So what is the use of seeking it from the preachers of
organized religions who have absolutely no idea about it?)
The finest minds of Islam have for centuries swoon at the sheer
magnificence of this parable, and praised the olive and the properties of its
oil to high heaven. We must again read the cream of Islamic enlightenment
revered by the Ummah for 14 centuries:
mystic Olive is not localised. It is neither of the East nor the West. It
is universal, for such is Allah's Light. As applied to the olive, there
is also a more literal meaning, which can be allegorised in a different
way. An olive tree with an eastern aspect gets only the rays of the
morning sun; one with a western aspect, only the rays of the western sun.
In the northern hemisphere the south aspect will give the sun's rays a
greater part of the day, while a northern aspect will shut them out
altogether, and vice versa in the southern hemisphere. But a tree in the
open plain or on a hill will get perpetual sunshine by day: it will be
more mature, and the fruit and oil will be of superior quality. So Allah's
Light is not localised or immature: it is perfect and universal."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n
olive oil is beautiful in colour, consistency, and illuminating power. The
world has tried all kinds of illuminants, and for economic reasons or
convenience, one replaces another. But for coolness, comfort to the eyes,
and steadiness, vegetable oils are superior to electricity, mineral oils,
and animal oils. And among vegetable oils, olive oil takes a high place
and deserves its sacred associations. Its purity is almost like light
itself: you may suppose it to be almost light before it is lit. So with
spiritual Truth: it illuminates the mind and understanding imperceptibly,
almost before the human mind and heart have been consciously touched by
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n
And that's serious spiritual enlightenment for hundreds of
million followers! Ordinary Italian and Greek chefs know more about
olives than all Muslim scholars put together. Surely Allah had far higher
expectations after so many centuries of collective brainstorming by the
best minds Islam could produce. Is this enlightenment for the Muslim
Their religious rivals — Hindus, Christians,
Buddhists, Sikhs and Jews — are only marginally better. Except for a
minority of Hindus and Buddhists most of them are still seeking salvation
from external Idols where He does not live.
This Olive (Holy Spirit) is now available to those who
can go beyond the limitations of religion and mind; those who believe in
the One Allah, the One God Almighty, the One Universal Self, the One
Creator; those who accept all His Messengers; those who do not divide and
rule His Human Family; those who
seek His Dominion within, those who feel the Winds of Resurrection
blowing; and those who know that this is the Time of Qiyamah.
This Divine Fruit (Ruh of Allah) is beyond all
religions, beyond the rational mind, beyond all known knowledge — beyond everything. Only those
surrendering totally to Allah will meet His Ruh who then leads them ever
onwards towards Eternal Life. This total surrender is only possible in the
purest state of 'thoughtless awareness', where even thoughts are
surrendered to Khudda.
The awesome Reality and
of Allah's Spirit within totally enlightening humans into absolute Islam is
the state of supreme surrender — all other forms of surrender being
either forced by persecution or based on ignorance, fear, falsehood, delusion or just
plain pretension. As long as human mind has thoughts that judge, deceive, lust, scheme,
conjure and delude day and night, there is no surrender.
Surrender is an
absolute state — every minute, 24-hours a day, seven days a week and 365
days a year — where one knows for sure that the
Allah is witnessing every deed, hearing every word, and knowing every
thought. This awareness is so acute that every effort is made to hold the
tongue before it judges, shutter the ears to gossip and slander, direct
the eyes away from lust, and silence the mind to all that displeases Him. This is the Islam (surrender) of Allah and not what the mullahs and muftis
have conditioned the Muslims to believe.
The Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has revealed
the gaping flaws of religious regimes which subdue and imprison humans in a maze of dogmas, doctrines,
distortions, divisions, theologies,
taboos, falsehoods and fallacies. For example, Her direction to all Hindus
that they should not worship idols or be vegetarians is
profound proof of Her dedication to Truth, no matter what adverse
reactions are aroused by such sensitive matters. Neither are the egos of
Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, or Jains pampered — the plain
Truth is announced with any fear or favor. Thus the Ruh of Allah also
to neither the decaying religions of the East nor West.
Mataji Nirmala Devi has
announced that there will be no Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism,
Taoism, Shintoism, Baha'ism, Judaism, Christianity or Islam after the
year 2000 — all of them will begin to self-disintegrate against the
Truth of the Resurrection revealed by Her.
this Golden Age no religious regime
will be allowed to mislead and divide and rule the children of Allah
anymore. It has been prophesied that God "shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor
crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are
passed away" (Rev. 21:4.) This prophecy is being fulfilled as these
lines are read.
"You have to run in the way of the Roots, of the
Branches, of the Leaves, of the Flowers and of the Fruits. You have to be
the essence of the Tree that nourishes and not just the outside leaves
with wrong ideas about your Self ... Now it is Time to jump from the
little area to the vast area which has no bounds ... because you belong
to a Tree of Great Wisdom, Tree of Great Sustenance and Religion, and Tree
of Great Mastery, the Mastery that you can never know how great it is. You
belong to a Tree that has complete security for you, and you belong to a
very Great Tree which gives you complete witnessing of the Drama, and
which gives you understanding that the Whole is part and parcel of you,
and you are part and parcel of the Whole.
So you belong to the Great Ocean of Love and
Generosity. So this Great Tree of Life has everything integrated within
itself. This is the Tree of Life that has been described in the Bible —
the Tree of Fire they call it. Now, you have become One with it. You are
Blessed by it. You are Loved by it. You are gently Guided by it. It is so
gentle that you do not even feel the Guidance, like a leaf when it falls
to the ground it doesn't make any sound. Try to become identified with
the Power; that is what you are. Like the meaning of the word is
identified with the Word; like the moonlight is identified with the Moon;
sunlight is identified with the Sun. Let that identification be the
Oneness, that integration, so that you become the Light of God's Love,
that people know God through your depths and your fruits. It is the most
fulfilling job, highest paid in every way, the most satisfying, energy
giving, and dynamic. You don't have to give up anything. Just be
organized in the Light of your Spirit yourself."

Enlightened interpretation of note 3002
Immediately following the Baptism of Allah (Self-Realization), the believer
begins physically, emotionally and spiritually experiencing Allah's
presence within. Upon Kundalini awakening the Divine Vibrations
(the luminous oil) of His Ruh (the Olive) begins to flow and permeate the
seeker, and begins the spiritual cleansing from within. These
humans begin to radiate an aura of Light visible only to those with gifted
Hardly has the Fire (the Kundalini) coursed through the
Tree of Life (the subtle system) and touched this Oil in the Olive, the
Divine Vibrations (Paramchaitanya) are increasingly felt on the
hands and head, spreading through the entire body which begins to glows
with a spiritual health welling from within. The body is cleansed,
heart healed, eyes purified and mind enlightened. Allah absolutely assures
that He is indeed closer than the vein of the neck, and that His
Light shines forth, and that He lives within! For the first time
ever God Almighty is felt living within oneself! Surrender is
total. This is Allah's Islam.
The Wind of Resurrection are felt daily and the True
Believers (Al-Mu'minun) physically experience Al Qiyamah.
The evidence of the existence of His Ruh within manifests, from an
instant to a few months, depending on the purity of both heart and mind.
Slowly the Cool Breeze increases in intensity, firmly establishing the
seeker in Truth. These enlightened soul emit stronger and stronger
vibrations which are picked up by other Self-realized souls. There are
many ordinary humans who emit good vibrations but only their ignorance
shroud their extremely beautiful inner selves.
There are many stages of enlightenment and states of
mind, with the Kundalini slowly guiding the seeker to the Divine World of
Reality (Lahut). They are all inter-related in very complex ways,
beyond the scope of human faculties to comprehend, and the Parable of the
Light is just a simple explanation to the unfathomable inner Reality. As
the Light in the mind begins to increase in luminosity they begin to see
further and further into the distance, slowly expanding their
consciousness to encompass the infinite Universe, Eternity and the Great
Circle of Life. These are the people who are "born of the
"As human awareness is united to the Divine, we
move into the subtlest level of communication into Collective
Consciousness. In becoming vessels of that Universal Power we become One
with all the other vessels. We learn to appreciate the real depth and
beauty of another person in vibrations. The beauty of art and Nature now
manifests itself as vibrations. We no longer judge on opinions, but on
vibrations. Just ask the question and a positive answer comes as a flow of
cool vibrations. Sit as for meditation and ask the vibrations. It is
conversation at its most sublime."
Shri Chintamani-Grhantastha Shri Nirmala Devi
"The Koran mentions the Cool Breeze in connection to
the Resurrection: "It is Allah Who sends the winds... . As such
(will be) the Resurrection." ("The Noble Quran" 35.9, Hilal
Publishing House, Istanbul, 1994, p.700.)
At the time of Kiyama (Resurrection Time) "we shall seal up their
mouths and their hands will speak to us, and their
legs will bear witness to what they used to earn" ("The Noble
Quran" 36.65, Hilal Publishing House, Istanbul, 1994, p.713.) This is
precisely what happens in Sahaja Yoga, when our entire inner system can be
felt on our fingertips. Everything that we do which goes against our
Spirit manifests on our chakras, and can be felt on our palms after we get
our Self-Realization. The Koran (ibid. for instance: 2.87; 42.52 etc.)
also makes many references to the Ruh (or Ruah), the Breath of God,
which is the same as the All-Pervading Power in Hinduism and the Holy
Spirit in Christianity. Its reflection in the human being is the Kundalini."
"On first awakening Kundalini ascends Sushumna Nadi up to the Agnya
Chakra. It covers the lower
plate of the main, then descends like melting clouds on the Ida and Pingala
Nadis to the Void. It fills this area and then the
three combined Powers of Mahakali, Mahasaraswati, and Mahalakshmi re-ascend
the Sushumna to open the Lotus Petals of the Sahasrara. The
Spirit, residing in the heart, has its seat at the top of the head in the
centre. All the Chakras (energy centres) have their seats in
the Sahasrara. This is the fontanel area that is pierced by
the Kundalini, the point of Yoga at which the attention
is united to the Spirit — the Brahmarandhra, the hole into the Brahman."
Shri Maha-padmatavi-samstha Shri Nirmala Devi
In order to understand the parable of the Niche of
Light better the Quranic verse on the Baptism of Allah will be examined as
both verses lead to the same Truth. Both surahs reveal the actual
beginning of the spiritual transformation of humans.
The Baptism of Allah;
And who can baptise better than
And it is He whom we worship.
surah 2:138 Al Baqarah (The Heifer)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, 1989.)
of Allah for Muslims is the same 'second
birth' for Christians; the same 'dwija or twice born' for Hindus;
the same 'opening of the Dsam Duar' for Sikhs; the same
Self-Realization, Satori, gnosticism, and fana of advanced spiritual
seekers. They seemingly different paths are all one and the same, with no
difference whatsoever as far as the pursuit of the Spirit is concerned. It
is just that the human race has been divided and fragmented by the
religious Idols, too brainwashed and conditioned to confirm the same Truth
in other Holy Books.
Due to the endless layers of subtle spiritual Knowledge
leading to the Ultimate Reality (Al-Haqqah), it cannot be explained
or conceptualized with any amount of words. The entire Shri Adi Shakti:
The Kingdom of God just wakes humans from their spiritual slumber.
Only individual experience, introspection, meditation, and the sustained
state of thoughtless awareness will peel off the conditioning and
misconceptions of the religiously mummified human.
Each and every individual will have to take his or her own journey,
getting rid of all earthly impurities like hate, lust, anger,
covetousness, greed, falsehoods and the like along the way. This
thoughtless state to destroy even impure thoughts is a inner cleansing like no other
as "thoughtless awareness is the first beautiful state you have to achieve
that will give you peace and a witness state to enjoy the drama of life,
to enjoy the different varieties of people, while you will be growing within
yourself. For a Sahaja Yogi, it is important not to see the faults
of others, but your own faults and correct them." The human soul has to be
pure to attain eternal Afterlife and live in the Kingdom of Allah, for the
spirit is devoid of all such earthly scum.
This subtle Knowledge of the Spirit may only be
understood in progressive stages, and then linked together to bring forth
illumination. There are no crash courses or human instructors. Every human
will learn from their own Self, their own Spirit, their own Kundalini,
their own Inner Guide. They have to become their own masters, never again
to be dominated by any external force. You will know the Truth and the
Truth will set you free. This is the essence of His Grace to all His
children during the Resurrection. The Age of Aquarius compels humans to
free themselves from all religious delusion by becoming their own gurus: The
only way is by seeking Divine Guidance from within their own being,
from the Spirit: "Thus, you understand there are two things that
have happened, that first, your Mother, your Kundalini which is in
you, which is your own Mother, which has been with you throughout, has
given you this birth and then it has taken to that Power, which Power you
can use yourself. You're empowered by that. You'll be amazed how this
All these subtle spiritual awareness will only be known
through Self-experience, for no amount of verbal explanation will clarify
this subtle Truth. Humans understand the meaning of grief, joy, hate,
happiness and other feelings for they have experienced them constantly all
their lives. But how to explain so rare an experience as Self-realization, a genuine actualization possible only since
the Sahasrara chakra was opened on May 5, 1970.
Self-Realization is an actual evolutionary process that
manifests from within, and has to be felt physically. By
physically we mean exactly what the scriptures say about this
phenomenon, that is this Divine Wind from within has to be experienced. And we don't mean a
flash-in-the-pan type of experience. It has to last a lifetime! Yes, for
the rest of earthly life!
Sprinkling some water or being born in a brahmin family
does not confer born again status, as many Christians and Hindus are led
to believe. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has stressed that the Christian
baptism is just an empty ritual with absolutely no benefit at all. It is
as real as Santa Claus that children believe and later realize to be a
collective commercial lie. So will it be in this century
when they become adults and realize baptism to be a collective religious lie.
"When Kundalini reaches Sahasrara,
the Lotus Petals open and enlightenment takes place. You may feel a
powerful pulsation in the crown of the head, followed by a melting
sensation and a flow of cool vibrations from the fontanel area.
This is the baptism by which you know you are truly born again."
