“Collectivity doesn’t mean that we all should be stuck together with some glue or something or we all become like Gibraltar, Rock of Gibraltar. No, it doesn’t mean that. It means wherever you are, you are connected. That is collectivity.
A collective doesn’t mean that you hate that person. No, your connection means you love that person, you’re concerned about that person. The connection, the connecting line is of love and not of hatred. So when you are connected with another person or persons, then you are in collectivity. But people will live together and everyday break each others heads. Some of them really give Me headaches sometimes, I tell you, because they are nowhere near the real growth of Sahaja Yoga.
So you may be in America, you may be in India, you may be anywhere – you are just connected and you are concerned. As soon as there’s a problem somewhere, into any part of the world, you are connected and you are effective; you can manage. But, if you are not connected and you are just glued together, it’s very inconvenient to live under such circumstances.
I think people don’t even understand the meaning of collectivity: “Where there’s not the other” – “Ananya” (Sanskrit no other), where there’s no other. There’s no other personality. … these personalities are separated from you because of [deviation to the] left or [deviation to the] right, or could be both. But you are yourself fully [collective] when you’re absolutely detached and your kundalini’s dancing; you’re alone and never alone.
This oneness with the whole gives you all the security that you want, all the joy you want, and that’s why kundalini awakening means collectivity. Unless and until you want pure collectivity in your being, kundalini won’t rise. When we become so detached that we don’t want anything with anyone, the detachment becomes really enjoyable, and in that detachment, we enjoy others. That means you enjoy the spirit of another person, through your spirit.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 11 08 1991
