If this Spirit of God is “the Spirit of the resurrectionï¿½ then we are possessed by a hope which sees unlimited potentialities ahead, because it looks towards God’s future. In his words, “The transcendent depths of the divine Spirit and the eschatological breadth of the Spirit of the resurrection mean that we cannot talk about our ï¿½rebirth’ or ï¿½regeneration’ as if it were a one-and-for-all experience, something finished and done with that is now behind us. We are still involved in the experience of renewal, and the becoming-new travels with us.ï¿½ In short, there is a growth in faith and a growth in the new life of the Spirit.
Rebirth and Mother Hood of Spirit
According to Moltmann, in rebirth, we are not experiencing the Spirit as a counterpart, but as a divine presence. He writes that, “If the new life is experienced and lived in the Spirit, then the Spirit is not itself the object of experience; it is the medium and space for experience.ï¿½ The speciality of this kind of experience of the Spirit is that the Spirit can appear to be so mysterious not because it is far away rather because it is so close. Moreover, life in the Spirit is a life in the “broad place where there is no crampingï¿½ (Job 36:16). So in the new life we experience the Spirit as a “broad placeï¿½ – as the free space for our freedom, as the living space for our lives, as the horizon inviting us to discover life. “The broad placeï¿½ is the most hidden and most silent presence of God’s Spirit in us and round about us. Moltmann writes, “We explore the depth of this space through the trust of the heart. We search out the length of this space through extravagant hope. We discover the breadth of this space through the torrents of love which we receive and give. God’s Spirit encompasses us from all sides and wherever we are (Ps 139). Christ’s Spirit is our immanent power to live – God’s Spirit is our transcendent space for living.ï¿½
“Motherhood of the Spirit and the rebirth is a significant theme in the theology of Moltmann… interprets the experience of rebirth and divine comfort as revealing the femininity of the Spirit. Moltmann writes that, “If believers are ‘born’ again from the Holy Spirit, then the Spirit is ‘The Mother’ of God’s children and can in this sense also be termed a ‘feminine’ Spirit. If the Holy Spirit is ‘the comforter’ (Paraclete), it comforts ‘as a mother comforts.’ In this sense, it is the Motherly comforter of believers.’”

good day, jagbir.
thank you all for posting extremely important words of Shri Mataji about the Redeemer, here in “1982-05-15, Puja in Brighton, You Must Understand Your Own Importance, Brighton, England”,
‘Tell them all about it. Give them the big message that the Redeemer has come now. Thereï¿½s no time to sit down. This is the One Who is here. Better get up now! Donï¿½t carry on with your old ideas and old things. [You] must know that this has happened.’
Btw, amruta.org gives it as Shri Lalita Puja, Understand your own importance
i will post that words of Her on the russian forum – to remember all of us to act

I believe we are missing the fact that the early, senior SYs and leaders were mandated with the task of being the very people that the Savior promised 2,000 years ago who will usher the salvation of humanity:
ï¿½Jesus solemnly assures the disciples that they will, in the future, perform even greater miracles than He. By this He means to say that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they will bring about the greatest miracle of all – the salvation of lost souls. He promises them that whatever they ask for, in connection with their ministry of bringing the miracle of salvation to lost men, will be granted them.ï¿½ (Stallings, Picirilli 1985, 205)
The Paraclete’s birthday and the Savior’s Easter is coming soon. It has been 2000 years since Jesus and 50 years since the Paraclete promised the above. Shri Mataji is dead and gone. And so is Sahaja Yoga. And the very Redeemers who were supposed to commence spreading that message are either dead or will be dying over the years.
But to call them Redeemers is an insult to the memory of Shri Mataji. They are the very opposite of that as they have done everything possible to keep humans from finding out about the Big Message that Shri Mataji was very serious about.
So almost fifty years later we are just beginning to get genuine Redeemers who write: “i will post that words of Her on the russian forum – to remember all of us to act.”
Actually, for the last couple of days, I have been negatively affected by finding out Shri Mataji’s early 1980s call to declare that She is the Redeemer. And Shri Mataji believed that the early SYs were going to be “the Redeemers, they are the ones who are going to manifest the salvation of this doomed humanity.”
There are no words to describe the hypocrisy, hype and bullsh*t that pervaded SYs and their organization. I am writing in the past as thankfully this organization had been destroyed from within ………………… and that the early ‘Redeemers’ are either dead, dying or soon will be.
Where would we be today had Shri Mataji better disciples? I doubt She would have fared much better. Even in 2018 we have very few Redeemers capable of following the Paraclete. And if we are to follow Jesus that figure would have to be further reduced.
