Just surrender, or Divine can’t use you…
The Great War
We have to know that a great war is taking place between the satanic forces and the Divine Forces, and all these satanic forces, symbolized by the word ‘evil’, in Sanskrit ‘rakshasas, asuras’, have taken birth to destroy the Kingdom of God. Imagine what an ambition! They want to ruin your hearts. The Kingdom exists, It will exist and It is eternal. It has created universes and universes, created the Human being out of the amoeba, to lead you to your today’s position. It brought you here to get what is your ultimate goal. This is what has been done. And at this critical moment we are living,at this precious moment where you are about to enter the Kingdom of God, all these forces are organized in order to make you fall. It belongs to your intelligence to understand that these forces are very subtle, full of tricks, and that they are above your comprehension. Even after the realization you have been noticing how they manage to make you fall. If we want to establish fully in the Kingdom of God we have to fight all the forces that are holding us back. Sahaja Yoga is not for the weak, for the useless people neither for those who are running after money or material things. The foundations of Sahaja Yoga have to be of great calibre, they have to manifest the deep desire for the human emancipation. They are those who will save mankind; they are the redeemers, those who will achieve the salvation of this ruined mankind. We don’t need to be many, very few are enough to save the world, but they have to be strong and they must absolutely establish in their own comprehension the powers of the Spirit, the Powers of their Father who is God Almighty.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Public Program, Caxton Hall, 30 June 1980.
“…You have already heard about the importance of today in the life of the Goddess. And that today Ravana demon was killed and that’s how there were celebrations. As you know very well that all the satanic forces which one had to face one at the time are all back on the stage and they are to be defeated. The greatest problem of modern times is that these satanic forces have taken a very subtle form and they enter into your psyches and into your egos. And you are the Saints, you are the Bhaktas, you are the devotees of the Goddess. It’s a very delicate situation. When the confusion is there, when the saints are attacked, the aggressor can be removed, but the saint becomes mixed up or confused with negative forces, which is very difficult to make him see the light. And you have seen this situation very well. And the subtler you grow, the subtler they became. And they start giving you ideas which are so negative, but you cannot see them. So the problem today is very delicate. There are no absolute saints and there are no absolute bad people.
Such a mixture, a confusion. That is what Kali Yuga is. Is modern times. Only way to get rid of them is to surrender. That is the only way. There is no other way around. Because when you surrender, the spirits, the negativities, the satanic forces just disappear. Because they are defective. They have no business to be there. They have no interest in a person who is surrendered to God. They cannot surrender. If they surrender they’ll also become saints. All the time to think, “What are my catches? What are my negativities?” Is not going to help you. Just surrender all these ideas that are coming to you and you’ll find that all absurd ideas will run away. This is the easiest way to get rid of your problems. Is just to surrender. After all, all these horrible people, all the horrible deities, enemies, who came forward to fight the Goddess, are there as long as you nurture them. As soon as you surrender yourself, they will find you of no use for themselves and they go to other half-baked people. The growth will only come, when the surrender is complete. One has to know that the powers are tremendous. You cannot conceive it as it is said by Markandeya. You cannot conceive it; it is beyond your conception. Outwardly you cannot understand, you just cannot understand. Under such circumstances the best thing is to surrender yourself. Now surrendering, what do you surrender? What do you surrender is your ego and your super-ego and it is completely cleansed and drenched in the blessing. Because you cannot give anything. You have to receive the blessings. And to receive the blessings you have to just surrender. It is so simple. The easiest way. To solve all your problems is to surrender.
Just say, “I surrender”. For realized souls it should be their mantra. And you will be amazed how all your problems will vanish. Because not only that the powers are tremendous, but as you are realized souls all the Divine Forces, all the Divine Deities, all the Eternal Beings; Chiranjivas, all the angels and the ganas, all of them are looking after you. But they know one thing, those who are surrendered and those who are not surrendered. You just surrender the problem, and you will be surprised that the answer will come in such a miraculous way. Just surrender. Do not take any responsibility upon yourself. Just surrender. Because how far you can go into the solution? Up to your rationality. Beyond that you have your Spirit, and the Spirit is connected to the Divine. So best is to surrender and the whole thing will show such light and such beauty and such meaning. In the modern times now the work is not the same way as it was when it is described. In the Raudrarupa or that the Chandrarupa you see there, was there at the back. It’s a mind work, it’s a Mother, it’s a simple thing. Loving, compassionate, for your protection. This rupa is there, but you do not see it. You are completely protected. Be sure of it.”

“Without breaking the Sahasrara we could not have achieved the ascent en masse. To keep Sahasrara open should be very easy if the western brains could understand and be aware of your Mother. When your Mother is the Deity of Sahasrara the only way to be able to keep the Sahasrara open has to be complete surrendering. For that many ask Me, “How do we do it?” It’s a very funny question. It is irrelevant. If your Sahasrara has been opened by someone, and luckily that is the Deity before you, it should be the easiest thing to surrender.
But it is not… What is surrendering? What do you have to surrender? A drop has to dissolve in the Ocean to become the Ocean, and a drop cannot be greater than the Ocean – can it be? So what is the surrendering? Surrendering of our conditionings, of our ego, and the artificial barriers we have built around us…
But one should know this is the greatest of greatest opportunity for you, not for the Divine. If you are not available the Divine can find Its Own way of fulfilling Its Last Culmination of Expression. Even to understand how immense the task is you need a surrendering heart.
The area of the Sahasrara is the Realm of God. When the Brahmarandhra opens fully then the heavens open within yourself. The Kundalini, which has risen up and given you Realization, creates the opening by which the Divine starts pouring all Its subtleties inside your brain…
All of us can achieve that state of Nirvikalpa… After Nirvikalpa you cannot come down.”
