Der wichtigste Spruch über Vergebung – Verzeihen

Verzeihe jedem,

Verzeihen ist die größte Vergeltung,

welche du machen kannst.

Verschwende keine Zeit,

um eine Liste zu machen,

welchen Leuten du vergeben wirst,

vergib einfach jedem.

Das ist nicht nur die Botschaft für heute,

diese Botschaft ist für immer.

von Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Quotation about forgive, forgiveness

Forgive everyone, forgiveness is the biggest revenge you can take.
Do not waste time making a list of people you want to forgive, just forgive everyone.

This is not the message for today, this message is forever.

from H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Easter 2008

Doubtless awareness

From thoughtless awareness you jump into doubtless awareness.

Unless and until that happens to you, it is not My [state], but is a state in which the Kundalini will [only] rise whenever you raise your hands. Unless and until you’ve achieved that state, please try and work it out.

from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

About Kundalini and Sri Ramana Maharshi

Question: Will concentration on Chakras quieten the mind?

Sri Ramana Maharshi: Fixing their minds on psychic centres such as
the Sahasrara (the thousand petalled lotus Chakra), yogis remain any
lengths of time without awareness of their bodies. As long as this
state continues, they appear to be immersed in some kind of joy. But
when the mind, which has become tranquil emerges and becomes active
again it resumes its worldly thoughts. It is therefore necessary to
train it with the help of practices like Dhyana (meditation) whenever
it becomes externalised. It will then attain a state in which there
is neither subsistence nor emergence.

Question: It is said that the Sakti manifests itself in five phases,
ten phases, a hundred phases and a thousand phases. Which is true?

Sri Ramana Maharshi: Sakti has only one phase. If it is said to
manifest itself in several phases, it is only a way of speaking. The
Sakti is only one.

Question: How to churn up the Nadis (psychic nerves) so that the
Kundalini may go up the Sushumna?

Sri Ramana Maharshi: Though the Yogi may have his methods of breath
control for his object, the Jnani’s method is only that of enquiry.
When by this method the mind is merged in the Self, the Sakti or
Kundalini, which is not apart from the Self, rises automatically.

The Yogis attach the highest importance to sending the Kundalini up
to the Sahasrara, the brain centre or the thousand petalled lotus.
They point out the scriptural statement that the life current enters
the body through the fontanelle and argue that, Viyoga (separation)
having come about that way, yoga (union) must also be effected in the
reverse way. Therefore, they say, we must, by yoga practice, gather
up the Pranas (vital force) and enter the fontanelle for the
consummation of yoga. The Jnanis on the other hand point out that the
yogi assumes the existence of the body and its separateness from the
Self. Only if this standpoint of separateness is adopted can the yogi
advise effort for reunion by the practice of yoga.

In fact the body is in the mind which has the brain for its seat.
That the brain functions by light borrowed from another source is
admitted by the yogis themselves in their fontanelle theory. The
Jnani further argues: if the light is borrowed it must come from its
native source. Go to the source direct and do not depend on borrowed
sources. That source is the Heart, the Self.

The Self does not come from anywhere else and enter the body through
the crown of the head. It is as it is, ever sparkling, ever steady,
unmoving and unchanging. The individual confines himself to the
limits of the changeful body or of the mind which derives its
existence from the unchanging Self. All that is necessary is to give
up this mistaken identity, and that done, the ever shining Self will
be seen to be the single non-dual reality.

If one concentrates on the Sahasrara there is no doubt that the
ecstasy of Samadhi ensues. The Vasanas, that is the latent mental
tendencies, are not however destroyed. The yogi is therefore bound to
wake up from the Samadhi because release from bondage has not yet
been accomplished. He must still try to eradicate the Vasanas
inherent in him so that they cease to disturb the peace of his
Samadhi. So he passes down from the Sahasrara to the Heart through
what is called the Jivanadi, which is only a continuation of the
Sushumna. The Sushumna is thus a curve. It starts from the lowest
Chakra, rises through the spinal cord to the brain and from there
bends down and ends in the Heart. When the yogi has reached the
Heart, the Samadhi becomes permanent. Thus we see that the Heart is
the final centre.

[Note: Commentary by David Godman: Sri Ramana Maharshi never advised
his devotees to parctise Kundalini Yoga since he regarded it as being
both potentially dangerous and unnecessary. He accepted the existence
of the Kundalini power and the Chakras but he said that even if the
Kundalini reached the Sahsrara it would not result in realisation.
For final realisation, he said, the Kundalini must go beyond the
Sahasrara, down another Nadi (psychic nerve) he called Amritanadi
(also called the Paranadi or Jivanadi) and into the Heart-centre on
the right hand side of the chest. Since he maintained that self-
enquiry would automatically send the Kundalini to the Heart-centre,
he taught that separate yoga exercises were unnecessary.

The practitioners of Kundalini Yoga concentrate on psychic centres
(Chakras) in the body in order to generate a spiritual power they
call Kundalini. The aim of this practice is to force the Kundalini up
the psychic channel (the Sushumna) which runs from the base of the
spine to the brain. The Kundalini Yogi believes that when this power
reaches the Sahasrara (the highest Chakra located in the brain), Self-
realisation will result.

Sri Ramana Maharshi taught that the Self is reached by the search for
the origin of the ego and by diving into the Heart. This is the
direct method of Self-realisation. One who adopts it need not worry
about Nadis, the brain centre (Sahasrara), the Sushumna, the
Paranadi, the Kundalini, Pranayama or the six centres (Chakras).

Wo das denken aufhört…

Die Liebe beginnt da, wo das Denken aufhört. Wir brauchen aber die Liebe von Gott nicht zu erbitten, sondern wir müssen uns für sie nur bereithalten.

von Meister Eckhart

Liebe erzeugt das Herz

Denn unsere Herzen erzeugen nicht die Liebe, sondern die Liebe zeugt unsere Herzen.
