So far, in the movement of our consciousness, we have been trying to understand the God Almighty and all other five elements that we call as important… And also, the consciousness has been moving towards the understanding of all the other four elements but the Mother Earth. That had to be such, because unless and until the understanding of all these four other elements are brought to a certain degree, the Mother Earth cannot express itself. Like if all your chakras, four chakras, are caught up, you cannot raise the Kundalini, you cannot give Self Realisation. You cannot have a mass evolutionary process done. That’s why we had yagyas, all other methods of exciting the four elements. They worshipped the water and they worshipped air, the sky, the firmament – the light. And that’s how we came up to the time of Christ where light was worshipped.
But today when we are in this modern Sahaja Yoga*, we are actually at the level of the Mother Earth, because as they say, it’s the age of the Aquarius. And Aquarius is the same as the Kumbha, is the Mother Earth. So we are at the level of the Mother Earth. We can also see in the consciousness of human beings. I’m saying not only men, but women also and men. The consciousness is moving more towards the feminine expression of life. But as stupid as human beings are, the feminists also have been very stupid that they are fighting on the level of rationality, of economics, of politics, all useless things. Equality on all these things if they are to be sought, you become men, you become just like men. If you are argumentative, if you are rational, if you talk like a man, it’s a masculine development. But the mother’s development, the feminine development, is not equality in the way the men have been stupid. No use competing with men in their stupidity, the amount of stupidity has been created already for us quite sufficiently.
The whole world is today, is expressing that nonsense that they had – the competition, the aggression, the oppression. So the other side of the woman, which was called as the dominated-one, the dark side, the oppressed, and all that, has to express itself in a different way, the whole mode, the style, has to change………So the quality of a woman as a mother – Goddess is always as a mother and She is the power most important to ignite Sahaja Yoga………
