We wish you all a happy Makar Sankranti for tomorrow!
Let us all pray on this holy day for our hearts to be completely opened and for all our conditionings and ego to disappear. Let us commit to dedicating ourselves to meditation and surrender ourselves to Sahaj Collectivity.

“So in the whole evolutionary process the Mother Earth has played a very big part through her axis. In the same way in human beings, the axis is the most important thing. That’s the main principle of life we have got, is our axis. We have to stand on our axis. Those who do not stand on their axis, stand more towards the left or towards the right, are capable of complete destruction; because either they will be destroyed by too much of right side or too much of left side. So our axis has to be properly dealt with. Now those people who do not have a proper axis can have problems of different chakras, of different kind of quality in a person.
“In Sahaja Yoga I don’t know you by your faces so much; I know you by your chakras, by your Sushumna, what sort of a Sushumna you have. If you have a deep Sushumna, I know you as a deep person. If you have a superficial Sushumna, I know you as a person with a very superficial type of a Sushumna. And even if you make up something by sort of being very nice or good, or talking about Sahaja Yoga or knowing too much about Sahaja Yog, and saying things which will baffle normally anyone as if you are masters of Sahaja Yoga, I know how deep you are. So the depth on the axis is more important than anything else. Your axis has to be very deep. Now you will say that “Mother, the axis is the same as it is, so how can it be deep?” So the, in the axis as you see is made in human beings, is like a three-and-a-half coiled paper-like thing, and the inside of it is the Brahma Nadi. The Brahma Nadi is a very, very small little, we can call a very, very hair-like thing where only a hair-like Kundalini can pass through. But when the person is deep this Brahma Nadi is bigger, and all the rest of them which are coiled into each other are smaller; while the people who are not deep, their outside what you call the foldings are bigger than the inside small thing. Now such people could be apparently very dynamic, may look very intelligent, may look very smart, may look to be very good-looking or whatever it may be outwardly, but inwardly they are not deep. Inwardly if they are deep, their whole attitude is beautiful. They are very joy-giving people, they are very joy-giving. And the more if you meet a person of another kind he may look joyous, he may try to give you joy, but the joy won’t be really that deep; it would be like a joy-killing.
So it is important for us to make our axis deeper, and that is where we lack the proper assiduity, the proper effort we have to put in. Now some people have automatically a very deep axis, and some people have very, very what you should say, a very constricted type of the axis. This axis has to be grown. Now when you come for My puja and all that I do expand it, I agree, but it is temporary thing. To retain it at that point one has to work at home, in the collective also. One has to work very much at home with meditation. But it should be done seriously. It should not be just a joke, to be frivolous, to be stupid – that’s not the way. It should be done very seriously, in the meaning that it is a devoted task you have taken, it’s a meditative thing; it’s a prayer to God we can call it, it’s a puja to God. Is to be done with that reverence, because reverence is the key of achievement. If you have no reverence about yourself and no reverence of others, then it cannot be done. But first you must have reverence for your own life. “What am I doing with my life? Where am I wasting it? Why should I waste it? Why shouldn’t I be deep? After all, there must be some purpose of my life. Am I serving my purpose, am I doing that?”

“So at this stage, I have to request you that you should really fully dedicate yourself to meditation and surrender yourself to collectivity and everyday you must think in the evening what have I done for Sahaja Yoga? What have I done for myself? Please try to understand that there is a very big jump that we have to take.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 14 January 1990, Sankranti Puja, Mumbai, India
