The first Deity that was created by the Adi Shakti was Shri Ganesh because it was necessary first to create the Deity of principles. The deity of principle in the sense that whatever is created, whatever is there as called ‘bhava’ – whatever has been so far created – up to human level. Everything had to be through the implanted mechanism of energy otherwise nothing could have been created. If you go into the matter, say sulphur dioxide, then sulphur and oxide — go on deep into it till you reach the state when it is a molecule — then you see these atoms of sulphur and oxygen, they oscillate. They oscillate with a frequency. There are three types of frequencies they use.
…..If there was no energy in the matter, how can you have all chemical compounds? Who pushes them? Say you have sodium chloride – sodium and chloride are attached to each other. But if the chloride has to go to some other atom then who does that? There has to be some energy which is absolutely inbuilt into matter…….You know water has energy, that’s how we have hydrostatics. Even coal, even stones, all of them have got energy within themselves. And it is all controlled by the principle of Shri Ganesh. So, though He’s such a small, little, tiny, little child, how great is His work and how much He has to work out. Now from matter, you move, say, to living plants, then to animals, then to human beings and everywhere His energy works. At the level of matter, they might call it ‘electromagnetic’ but potentially it is the energy of Shri Ganesh, which is electromagnetic at that point. Then it starts evolving, growing. That’s how we have different stratas of energies that we see in different growth of the evolution.
In the human being it exists, as you know, as auspiciousness, as purity, mainly the innocence. So the power of innocence is such a guiding factor. There’s a difference between ignorance and innocence. If you are innocent then, to you, nothing is important except for love. For an innocent person – who is not conditioned, who is not egoistical, who is not so-called matured – it is the love that it understands. It doesn’t care for any wealth, any power, anything but the love that it can feel, the pure love of a person……
