Shri Mataji: "Self-Realization will progressively lead to the creation of a new race for the new Age."

Ohiyesa (Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman), Santee Sioux
"Each soul must meet the morning sun, the new sweet earth, and the Great Silence alone! What is Silence? It is the Great Mystery! The Holy Silence is His voice!"

— Ohiyesa (Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman), Santee Sioux

"As you are probably aware, there have been many sages and teachers who have arisen and shared with us their eloquence, their own revelations and reflections about silence, the truth and the secret of life and living. This"many"unfortunately has taken thousands of years to accumulate. The reality is that there are very few fully illumined beings ever alive at one moment. Perhaps there is a reason for this, not the scope of this discussion though.

One of the most influential and treasured of all was a man named Ramana Maharshi, from India. It is my humble opinion that he presents the most clear, gentle and loving approach to human freedom in history. At the core of his teachings are profound references to silence. Ramana speaks about pure silence this way:

"What exists in truth is the Self alone. The self is that where there is absolutely no"I"thought. That is called Silence. The Self itself is the world; the Self itself is"I"; the Self itself is God.”

"The inner silence is self-surrender. And that is living without the sense of ego. Solitude is in the mind of humanity. Silence is ever speaking; it is the perennial flow of"language."It is interrupted by speaking; for words obstruct this mute language. Silence is permanent and benefits the whole of humanity... By silence, eloquence is meant. It is the best language. There is a state when words cease and silence prevails.”

"There is Consciousness along with quietness in the mind; this is exactly the state to be aimed at.”

"In samadhi* there is only the feeling"I am"And no thoughts. The experience"I am"Is being still. The Self is God."I am"Is God. All that is required to realize the Self is to be still.

*samadhi is a state of silent absorption in the Self, in God, in Nothingness of Mind itself, in Pure Silence

"Q: My approach is not so absolute, hence my question. Throughout the West people are in search of something real. They turn to science, which tells them a lot about matter, a little about the mind and nothing about the nature and purpose of consciousness. To them reality is objective, outside the observable and describable, directly or by inference; about the subjective aspect of reality they know nothing. It is extremely important to let them know that there is reality and it is to be found in the freedom of consciousness from matter and its limitations and distortions. Most of the people in the world just do not know that there is reality which can be found and experienced in consciousness. It seems very important that they should hear the good news from somebody who has actually experienced it. Such witnesses have always existed and their testimony is precious.

M: Of course. The gospel of self-realization, once heard, will never be forgotten. Like a seed left in the ground, it will wait for the right season and sprout and grow into a mighty tree.”

The year 2000 marks not only the beginning of a new century, but, according to those whose words are recorded in the following pages (of Revelation: Wisdom of the Ages by Paul Roland), it heralds the dawning of a New Age, an age which will witness an evolutionary leap in consciousness, culminating in a spiritual Renaissance for humanity. Such a change will not come for the asking. We may be forced to re- evaluate our attitude to organized religion, our obligation to humanity and certainly our perception of the Universe and our purpose in it, a revolution which has apparently already begun... that the most significant changes will come about within the lifetime of most of us, but there are conflicting views as to how the changes will transpire.

Some say it will be forced upon us through the catharsis of crisis and conflict in the manner of a biblical apocalypse. Others prophesy a gradual awakening of consciousness resulting from a crisis of conscience, with the conflict being waged between our self-interest and the"divine discontent"felt by our Higher Selves.

At the end of a century in which we set our sights on outer space, we may find that our future depends on our success in exploring the infinity of inner space.”

Paul Roland, Revelation: Wisdom of the Ages
Ulysses Press, 1995, p. 133.

"And now, in the last quarter of the century, there is a renewed interest in the esoteric, but this is of a more mature, spiritual nature than was shown by the sensational spiritualism of the earlier period. Esoteric thought, it seems, is not immune to a renewed surge of energy and looks like being stimulated into a re-evaluation of its beliefs, just at a time when the rest of humanity will have to question theirs.

Through Alice Bailey," The Tibetan"predicted that in the first quarter of the 21st century there will be a restoration of the Ancient Mysteries, which have been debased by Black Magic. These will now be expressed at a higher level. This is part of the"Great Plan" and will pave the way for an event described as"Externalization of the Hierarchy", when those on earth who are spiritually advanced will work consciously with the brotherhood to help humanity.

The effect of this surge in our spiritual evolution is predicted to be dramatic, especially for those who are unprepared. Such people will resist the changes, clinging all the more desparately to their materialictic values.

"The Mysteries will be restored in other ways also, for they contain much besides which the Masonic rites can reveal or that religious rituals and ceremonies can disclose ... The Mysteries will restore colour and music as they essentially are to the world ... in such a manner that the creative art of today will be to this new creative art what a child's building of wooden blocks is to a great cathedral such as Durham or Milan. The Mysteries, when restored, will make real — in a sense incomprehensible to you at present — the nature of religion, the purpose of science and the goal of education. These are not what you think today ...”

Beyond these sensational claims of a world-wide re-awakening to the Ageless Wisdom is the fundamental belief shared by many of the esoteric and religious traditions that man must first demonstrate the will to develop, before the benign forces — whether we imagine them to be"Hidden Masters," our own Higher Self or a Messiah — are allowed to intervene to help us.”

The Great Adi Shakti Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“Of course, this is also the age of science and technology in which human beings progressed beyond the stage of blind faith. And in this great happening of the Last Judgment and the Resurrection Time, one need not, and should not, believe blindfolded in whatever is said about ascent or salvation, but should treat it like a hypothesis, and observe the facts with an open mind like a scientist. Of course, if a hypothesis is proved, then any honest, scientifically minded modern person has to accept it. The pure Knowledge of the Divine, manifesting itself directly through Self-Realization, will progressively lead to the creation of a new race for the new Age. This Knowledge is not then for very few privileged individuals, as it was in the past, but for the benevolence of the whole world. In this way, the last breakthrough of our evolution will be achieved en masse. The entire human race can be renewed and transformed. Dharma, righteousness, will once again be universally respected, and human beings will live in Peace, harmoniously with themselves, with Nature, and with each other...

In My opinion every Westerner has, as a matter of urgency, to understand the vital role he has to play in this great Age of Transformation and of the Last Judgment.

The Western mind has to realize the enormous responsibility which has been placed upon the West, and the Western people need urgently to find out how to achieve the balance not in terms of money, but in the vision of their responsibility. This is very much required for the ascent of the whole humanity, otherwise on whom will the blame of destroying the innate human culture by the dynamism of modernism lie — the advanced or underdeveloped?

In these Modern Times, in the evolutionary process, we have reached the state of human awareness. This human awareness can work through its thinking, rationality or conditioning. Many modern poets have described them as the calls of Freedom of the Self. But what if one can rise to a higher dimension of awareness? Why not open our hearts and minds to the unique discovery that has been revealed for this vital ascent? The Kingdom of God that we were promised is at hand. This is not a phrase out of a sermon or a lecture, but it is the actualisation of the experience of the highest Truth which is Absolute, now manifesting itself in ordinary people at this present moment.”

The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

Robert Kysar, John

“They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation.”
R. Picirilli, The Randall House Bible Commentary

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament

“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi

“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there. Now, the Mother's character is that She is the one who is the Womb, She is the one who is the Mother Earth, and She is the one who nourishes you. She nourishes us. You know that. And this Feminine thing in every human being resides as this Kundalini.”

“She is your pure Mother. She is the Mother who is individually with you. Forget your concepts, and forget your identifications.

We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
