….Now we have to understand that Sahaja Yoga* is a very different style of spiritual fulfilment. …. so far human beings have evolved either by physical process or by emotional process or by mental process. Now these are the work of the elements which are like the physical process when takes place uses the oxygen, or air element. And the emotional process also you use more of water element for that. And for your mental process you use the ether. So the human beings have grown on these three, four elements. And the light also, we have used quite a lot to see through our eyes and all that. Light we have used – like from the sun. All these elements we have used and we – actually even when we have not used they have manifested their blessings on us.
Now the last and the most important is the Mother Earth. She has to manifest Her own way to give a new dimension to our consciousness. So the consciousness of a human being has been of a certain level so far with the boons of these other elements but the Mother Earth. I mean to say whatever you have to take from the Mother Earth you have to put in an effort and extract it from Her. It is not that She spontaneously has put into you something in your consciousness. Means whatever we have tried to get from the Mother Earth has been a gross taking in of Her qualities, or taking in Her manifestations, but actually She Herself has not manifested upon us. She has not added to our consciousness. ….
When we are emotionally disturbed we breathe spontaneously. So one must understand that so far we have not been able to manifest the Mother Earth within us. So in this new consciousness the Mother Earth is going to manifest. Like a tree has grown outside with all these elements supporting it, but it has not gone to its source on which it is living. Now, the subtle side of Mother Earth is the Kundalini. She is expressed within us as Kundalini. …
