Excerpts from an interview with Sant Sai Maa: Is the New Age 2012 (which according to the Mayan calendar is a time when man will live in total harmony with himself, others and the environment), different from your vision of the Golden Age also known as Sat Yug? The shift that took place in 2012 didn’t mean the end of the world. It meant the end of the old system of thinking. And those who think nothing has changed, except the year, actually don’t know that the energies are moving. Our galaxy is shifting because energy given to this planet is shifting and transforming human consciousness. The fact is that the planet itself is being enlightened, moving from the third dimension to a higher dimension. Naturally all of us are moving with its consciousness. You may have noticed everybody is going through some issue or other right now. Did you ever think why? Just to bring us back to ourselves, read ourselves, know ourselves, stop that neediness of something outside of ourselves so that we can enter the era of illumination. 2012 was only the beginning of the new civilisation. A new civilisation that restores and activates our DNA with new strength; rewires brain functioning for total balance between the right and left brain; and brings about equilibrium between the feminine and masculine energy. It’s an era to achieve internal harmony. We experience ourselves as whole. We become conscious, more enlightened human beings. And the more conscious we are in this era, the easier it is for us to be part of that enlightened civilisation. What do you mean by enlightened being? Suddha Sattva! Being in a state of authenticity takes us to our enlightened self and clears the way for the Divine Self. We clearly recognise our divinity, our light, our multi-dimensional being. All of us were created to enjoy this planet as a playground, but because of the distortion caused by the ego, the universal mind was reduced to the human mind, causing aberrations. A human birth is the most sacred one in all creation. It is a very rare opportunity; it means a flesh and blood body merged with a deathless spirit: 100 per cent of both. The state of enlightenment is to be fully human and fully divine. Many people say, ‘Maa, you are God’, but it is half-true, because we all are God. The Divine is in all of us. We are here to divinise ourselves. This is the ultimate purpose of human birth. We are here to be authentic; to know our authentic self; and become conscious human beings. How will the Golden Age look like? How will we live in it? We will live in our Light body. We will not use a car, instead we will travel in highly evolved Light bodies. We will gain momentum and energy in the air, and travel beyond this planet as well. It is an age of truth, an age of authenticity, an age where there is no illusion, but only reality. The main ingredient will be love within the pure and absolute consciousness. How should we prepare ourselves for it? The first preparation is awareness – awareness of everything around – and then self-awareness. Why self-awareness? Because within us there is divinity and if we develop discernment and self-awareness, then we can realise this divinity which is a full expansion of yourself. Your consciousness rises to a higher level and awakens the pure divinity within you where peace, love and joy reside. Actually, life is a dance of expansion and contraction. When the contraction reaches its limit, it results in pain; we feel tense, tight, frozen. On the contrary, the more we expand, the freer we become. When our heart becomes free, we live fearlessly. We expand our thoughts and feelings; our brain become keval Brahma (very enlightened). Our endocrine system, nervous system, and the whole being get in alignment with super consciousness. What is the most practical way of doing this? Bring love, light and purity into your brain, endocrine, mind, chakras and being. Install the state of sat-chit-anand in them. How can self-transformation lead to the Golden Era? Everything is a form of energy. Quantum Physics proves this. Every object has energy and that energy can exist in many forms with its own quality of light, sound and vibration. Our physical body has a multi-layered system of energy – emotions, thoughts, and spirit. The energies of this anatomy are all connected, and move in and around us supporting our life. As we are all energy, each one of us has immense power to enhance or disturb the energy around us by raising or lowering it. It also means we can touch the energy of everything; we can raise our vibration, send out and receive new information and signals of higher frequency that are coherent and aligned with our higher selves. In this context if we transform, everything will transform, and thus we become responsible for the transformation of this era – the era of enlightenment. How do we know we are ready for the Golden Age? You cannot miss it. It’s a change of consciousness. It influences your style of life – the way you eat, speak, see and think. You love everybody with no condition. You stop judging. You don’t blame anyone. It’s a fantastic state. It’s a state of elevation all the time. Nothing triggers you, you don’t take anything personally, you don’t feel blamed, and you don’t accuse anybody. You don’t blame anybody for anything happening to you because it’s never about somebody else; it’s always oneself. Nobody does wrong to us…ever. You have fewer needs. Your relationship shifts with everybody and everything. There is a knowingness that starts to come out of your own self. Maa with her followers You promote the philosophy of love. Why is love so important? so which plant you choose to water and grow is completely a matter of choice. Love is the highest frequency in the whole creation because love is God, God is love, love is life, and life is love. A good example is a tiny baby. The baby doesn’t speak to you and yet you get attracted. Why? Because there is no mind developed yet, and the heart is nothing but love. The same love exists within you, but it is covered. A glimpse of this love will heal you, and set you on the path of transformation, where layers of distortion dissolve, and purity takes over. Love is the main ingredient of our existence. It invites you to honour yourself, respect yourself, and accept yourself with great love. As physical bodies, we are limited by time, space, gender, race, colour, and nation. Can love transcend these divisions? Some think the opposite of love is hatred or anger but the opposite of love is fear. On this planet there are only two energies – one is love that makes us feel free, liberal, light, full, joyful and expanded. And another is fear that binds and restricts us, causing doubt and resistance. Now suppose you are in love…how expanded you feel, you sense you have so much potential, you have the power to change the whole world, you can do anything, you can lift mountains, you can touch the sky; you feel you are a creator. Now go to the place where you felt fear… you feel contracted, restricted, vengeful, squeamish, fragile, and powerless. Becoming the one who loves is becoming more like God. Being in love is the closest state to the Divine. However, most people do not know how to maintain this state of being, and thus lose their eligibility to become a channel for Divine love. How to become a channel for Divine love? The answer is awareness. An awareness of what is your energy base. There is no good and bad; dark or light…for me there is only a spectrum of energy. In between, life exists. As humans we swing between fear and love. May be in one, two or three months you will become aware of your thoughts, feeling, and base; so when you experience negative or impure energy, you will transform the seeds of fear in the brain before the seeds have an opportunity to sprout. Awareness and enlightenment is the same thing; they’re just synonyms. The more you become aware of the “junk” or shadows, the more vulnerable you become, the more open you become, the more you can acknowledge, accept, welcome the darkness, the shadows. The more you shed your emotional psychic wounds, your energetic “baggage” and the stuff that you have accumulated in your journey through this lifetime and probably previous ones, the more these places within you get emptied, the more readily available you are for life, to live a vibrant existence, to simply exist. And huge transformation and healing at every level will occur. The concept of evolution, longevity
