Why seeking Enlightenment is for the fools?
Enlightenment, the great cosmic joke. Yes, you are already enlightened, and that is the absolute truth. So why seek enlightenment? And seeking enlightenment is for the fools, you know, it’s like a bird who is looking to fly and say, where is the air, where is the sky? Enlightenment is the same, beloved? Because you see, this is where the big confusion comes in… there is absolute truth. Absolute truth is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. And it’s eternal, and it’s immortal, its infinite like there are certain laws of the universe, like cause and effect and the law of attraction. So it is absolute truth, it is permanent; it will never change, it is omnipotent. So the absolute truth is, we all are in this very present moment, we are enlightened because we are true spirits; it’s our true nature to be enlightened.
Why do you may get confused on your Spiritual Journey ?
I remember all throughout my spiritual journey, my awakening (spiritual journey) was always the big confusion that I was seeing all the time. I even see it with my followers. And it’s always that confusion between absolute truth and relative truth. So, let’s explain relative truth. Relative truth is in direct correlation with another in a relationship. It’s related to the physical plane. So relative truth is like; most human beings are not enlightened per se unless they have self-realized. Though, let me rephrase that…what Devi Ma means is that people accumulate conditioning and a lot of baggage, and most people do. It is universal, and so that’s the nature of human beings with ego and mind to constantly be conditioned, brainwashed, and accumulated. You see, it’s in relation to something else. So, this is the relative truth that human beings have been conditioned to, either from a dysfunctional family, social media, government, or authority. Whatever there is in the physical realm, we live in a duality where we constantly deal with relative truth. So the relative truth is, one of them is most people grow up in a dysfunctional family. Therefore, they accumulate so much garbage, and the karmic structure is so loaded. And so that’s why ultimately, people live in suffering and misery, and some are in emotional pain because they haven’t gotten rid of all the garbage. Because that is the nature of the physical realm. There is duality, yet the absolute truth is that we all are interconnected by one web. It’s like a universal web, like a spider web, all interconnected by one source. There is no absolute separation between all of us. And to experience that deep down and that non-dualistic experience of oneness is rare for most people.
Even though if you look at the Maharishi, Ramana… I have a profound, beautiful reverence for this spiritual master who brought the path of self-inquiry. Self-inquiry directly channels to the Source is a very hard experience for most people because the nature of the physical realm is to live in relative truth. To live bombarded by all the karmic structure you’re carrying by your personality, Asmita, the ego identifications, by your mind; by all the samskara, the karmic impressions, the vasana, the tendency, the conditioning, the accumulation, all of that is a big load that you’re carrying. So it’s very hard for most people to be able to transcend, feel and experience their true nature at the moment. Self-inquiry is a beautiful path, but it’s difficult for most people. Aren’t you caught in your mind all or, most of the time, the jabbering of your mind? Most people get caught in what we call the mental body.
Why transcending the Mental Body is so crucial?
You must transcend the physical body, and the mental body, what we call in the yogic tradition the Mano Maya Kosha, and then the Pranic Maya Kosha, the energy body. So when you start transcending these sheaths, you can really tap into beyond the Vijnana Maya Kosha, the etheric body to really transcend into the bliss body, the Ananda Maya Kosha. Self-inquiry which is to go and tap into the Source, to go straight to the Cosmic Mind is very challenging because you have to transcend all those envelopes, what we call in the yogic tradition, the maya kosha, these sheaths. Devi Ma says that it is not impossible. It is certainly possible! But for most people it’s very difficult. You might get a glimpse of it and that’s so beautiful, but it’s very hard to maintain it.
Enlightenment doesn’t happen like a big bang. If you look beloved, for example at a seed, you plant a seed of a peach tree, right? And you’ve seen the sprout growing, and then there is a little plant growing with the right conditions, the right elements because everything has cause and effect, the perfect conditions have to be there for the sprout to grow, and for the right amount of protection, and as it grows the conditions have to change. Too much sunlight, too much rain, or not enough rain, or too much protection from the elements could hamper the plant. Then the plant starts growing, growing and growing, and with the right conditions, the right effects, and the right amount of sunlight; too much sunlight could completely burn out the young new plant, or too much rain will completely destroy it. So with the right conditions, you can pierce through these envelopes, especially transcending the mental body and go beyond your limitations and boundaries.
Why a journey on the Spiritual Path?
As the baby plant grows, grows and grows, it’s like the spiritual unfoldment on your journey on the spiritual path. Then it unfolds, and it finds some obstacles, overcomes it and grows and grows, and then becomes a strong tree. See how long it takes. It’s a process, and then suddenly flowers come, and in a different season then you’ll start seeing little fruits starting to grow for it to finally bring that sweetness in the peach. I love peach, it’s such a delicious fruit, especially when they’re ripe. They’re so delicious! But it’s a long journey from seed to become a peach, and it’s the same for enlightenment, for this unfoldment. So, Devi Ma always says, in a way, yes enlightenment is the greatest joke, a cosmic joke, because ultimately within our own spirit, our own being, we all are enlightened. That’s our true nature. But when we come into the physical realm, we are facing relative truth; we are facing duality. Ah one important part….the duality we are experiencing in the physical world is how we are experiencing this world. How could you know from love to hatred, or good to bad? You see, beloved? So, if you look around, all around, we see duality all over in this realm. In fact, some countries like in India experiences extreme duality for instance. If you haven’t gone to India yet, I highly recommend that you go. It’s a phenomenal experience because you will see extreme duality there. And it’s necessary to change your perception.
The physical realm cannot be without the relative truth and without the duality of opposites, because that is what keeps the physical realm alive and manifesting. Without it, the physical realm would collapse. That is how phenomena come into existence in this plane. And yet, the absolute truth at the very core of who we are, our true essence of who we are, is there is nothing that needs to be done. Because the bird is out of the cage, can fly and is free. And it is our true nature to be free, infinite and abundant in a complete expansion of consciousness with no limitations, no duality, and no separation. Because ultimately this is the challenge human beings have here on Earth, is to come back to the present moment, and to experience their true nature. Because of the karmic structure that most people have, the bags they carry makes it almost impossible not on the path. It requires a lot of sadhana (spiritual yogic practices), a lot of Kriya yoga (pranayama), meditation and mindful practices, etc. These are powerful ways to transcend and experience to your true nature. And for other seekers who are a lot more evolved, and who don’t have so much of a karmic structure, it might be easier to transcend and experience your Divine presence. You see, Ramana Maharishi was already living, bathing in his own Divine presence, already fully enlightened, so without doing anything.
It was very easy for Ramana Maharishi, but try to sit there forever, for weeks and months on and on, and just to be in your Divine presence, to close your eyes and do nothing, be nothing. Your ego and your mind are not going to allow it for most people. But the point of this, beloved, is don’t seek enlightenment because ultimately you know it’s there. All you need to do is just get rid of garbage. That’s all. It’s like peeling an onion. This expression has been used, I believe, as an example in Buddhist language. It’s like layer after layer. This has been my experience that enlightenment is not a big bang. It is really a dissolution of ego identifications, and it’s a process. It varies from person to person, again depending on the conditions and their karmic structure.
Do not Seek Enlightenment
Do not chase enlightenment. Not every peach tree will grow the same way. Where they’re planted, how they were planted, in which climate they are in, what kind of soil, and what kind of sunlight and nutrients the tree receives. So, it depends on your karmic structure. It will also depend on the kind of sadhana you do. It could also depend on the kind of spirit you are and many conditions around you. The best thing is, don’t worry about any of this, just be in a state of abandonment and a state of wonderment like a child. Don’t seek enlightenment because when you realize it’s a joke, it’s the great cosmic joke, you just go back within yourself and just enjoy the ride. Just know that your heart is the gateway to God, is the gateway to the Divine within yourself. When you enshrine Divine love there, and you know this is the gateway, if you seek something, don’t seek enlightenment because it can become the biggest obstacle for you just chasing enlightenment. It’s elusive for most people. Just seek within your heart, the shrine of Divine love, and you are sure on the right way to experience your Divine presence, and your true nature.
So, how do you know that someone is enlightened? How can you tell? That’s a question also often asked. Well, my own experience, from my own realization, and I speak with a tremendous, profound experience of phenomenal spiritual, transcendental, mystical Kundalini ascension, and this was an unfoldment for so many lifetimes. And how could you tell? Well, first, you will notice everything change about you, even your physiology changes. The eyes… there’s such a Divine light, pure light coming from the eyes, not a light that you see in most people.
It’s challenging to put this into words. A pure light emanates from this being as a Divine presence, an energetically field. The way they speak with so much wisdom. Just something unusual about their presence, this presence is something that needs to be experienced. It’s something, just the glowing of the aura is different and ethereal. It’s a state of vairagya, of colorless. It’s a state of pure Divine light, consciousness and love. It’s vibrational field that you feel, ultimately is the true nature. So don’t seek enlightenment. It’s for the fools and just enjoy the ride. Go make your heart the shrine for the Divine, and there you will find Divine love, and you will experience a beautiful journey on your path. And don’t worry if you don’t have this glimpse of your true nature and presence yet, it’s an unfolment and just trust the process. It can be the most phenomenal soul journey!

Discovering Your Divine Light
Your life may feel out of control at times, but the trials and tribulations of everyday life can lead you toward an inner radiance that shines brighter than the darkest days. In fact, a strong spiritual practice can guide you toward your ultimate life path.
You are a powerful being capable of emanating radiant light and experiencing a profound spiritual transformation. Today in this insightful video of one of Shree Devi Mayi Ma ’s Divine satsang, we’ll share some of her wisdom that will allow you to deepen your spiritual inclination using yoga, meditation, inner guidance and carry you toward your Divine light.
Join us in this profound wisdom, insights and guidance at Devi’s Grace as Shree Devi Mayi Ma guides us on how to get in touch with our Divine light through “Drinking Bliss” – the best cocktail to have on a moment-to-moment basis!
Begin Your Morning By Feeling Divine Grace
Some people awake to a blaring alarm and a laundry list of responsibilities racing through their minds, while others lazily roll out of bed with the residue of forgotten dreams still hanging in the cool morning air.
However, Shree Devi Mayi Ma encourages us to begin each day with a fresh new perspective just as a child in a state of wonderment. When you get up in the morning, smile and express gratitude for another day on Earth. Allow yourself to become an instrument of Divine grace and make small steps towards discovering your Divine light with incantation, mantra and mindful practices.
Embrace each new day as a great opportunity to make yourself useful and serve all living beings, with what Shree Devi Mayi Ma calls, “Karma Yoga” by performing a compassion act with no expectation in return. Open your heart, love other beings and take compassionate loving actions with the most beautiful and pure volition to give and share yourself.
If life’s stressors are weighing you down, allow yourself to feel the lightness of being by living joyfully and mindfully in each moment. Simply take five mindful minutes to ground yourself through your conscious and mindful breathing. Shree Devi Mayi Ma calls this “inhaling God.” Expressing your incarnation aloud in the cosmos before hopping out of bed can change the course of your life.
Remember, you need to make the time to express profound gratitude for a new day and set your intentions for the day ahead. Use the power of incantations and yogic mantra. Shree Devi Mayi Ma goes in depth in her programs with this phenomenal subject on how to raise your energy into higher vibrational frequency.
What is it that you wish to accomplish or manifest? Would you like to become more compassionate? Would you like to become more patient? Would you like to be more fulfilled and happier? Would you like to feel more at ease, at peace and blissful? Give yourself this moment to yourself and transform your life one moment at a time – one day closer to rediscovering your Divine light.
You Have the Power to Master Your Destiny
As Shree Devi Mayi Ma was experiencing advanced stage 3 breast cancer which had metastasized into her body, she nearly passed away from a severe anaphylactic shock reaction induced by potent and harsh chemotherapy. During this intense, otherworldly experience, she felt the presence of Jesus Christ. In that instant of crossing over, a miracle happened to her. To learn more about her entire profound story, grab a copy of her major acclaimed book, Becoming The Light: Realized Your True Enlightened Nature.
After experiencing the agony of dying and being reborn, her life was never the same. During her cancer journey, she experienced a natural sense of Zen every morning as she observed the morning sunlight reflecting upon leaves dancing in the breeze. She still does, and that existential zen moment is eternal within her nature now. Just as Shree Devi Mayi Ma feels one with everything, you can too.
Although she experienced profound sickness within her body, Devi Ma (as many affectionately call her) maintained a high vibration in her mind while walking the spiritual path. Devi Ma was practicing spirituality for a decade at this point, but her connection to the Divine strengthened. Most people would consider a cancer diagnosis as a death sentence, but she found opportunity, grace and a blessing within her struggles and major crisis.
When doctors told Shree Devi Mayi Ma that they did not want her to undergo more chemotherapy treatments, she asked the ascended masters for Divine guidance regarding her life path. In a moment of profound inner knowing, she knew to chant the mantra of Mahavatar Shiv Babaji Gorakhnath over the chemotherapy and herself. Despite her doctor’s refusal to perform yet another round of chemotherapy, Shree Devi Mayi Ma knew that she was divinely guided and did not need to walk her path alone.
Find Divine Guidance Through Mantras Chanting, Incantation, Mindful and Yogic practices
Shree Devi Mayi Ma began chanting this powerful mantra of protection imparted to her by her first spiritual master. This mantra comes straight from the Siddha Nath lineage of Mahavatar Babaji, who is believed to be a reincarnation of Lord Shiva. For those who may not know, Mahavatar Babaji is widely known as an ascended master who blesses his devotees while spreading Kriya Yoga worldwide. Many believe that he has lived in the Himalayas for thousands of years, and is still around on another plane.
When Shree Devi Mayi Ma was undergoing intense chemotherapy, she often used mantra chants to maintain a high vibration. Chanting mantras regularly is one of many methods to train your mind to stay at a high vibration, still the agitated mind, and harness the strength of will to persist in the face of suffering. Mantras also help transform your energy into higher vibrations.
While there are many chants, meditations, and incantations to choose from, Devi Ma explains in-depth techniques and yogic practices that you can use to raise your vibration in her programs Becoming the Light, Inner Journey Mastery, and Radiating in Light. In fact, Devi Ma has used these chants and tools herself to maintain a high vibration while undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments and several surgeries.
For instance, in Devi Ma’s first chemotherapy session, she felt an intense burning sensation as the nurse injected her with the first AC medication, which her nurse said was the most dangerous form of chemotherapy. However, as Devi Ma awakened her inner guidance through dedicated chanting, meditation and intense sadhana, her fear subsided, and the pain dissipated. Even her ex-husband was astounded by the transformation in her response.
In Shree Devi Mayi Ma’s program at Devi’s Grace, Becoming the Light Inner Journey online mastery, you can learn more about her profound guidance, teachings, practical and timeless wisdom which has been inspired by the ancient yogic tradition and universal timeless wisdom beyond the age, class, or religion.
In this program, you will unearth insights directly from Shree Devi Mayi Ma and her energetic transmissions from ascended masters and her previous spiritual masters. With this spiritual knowledge, guidance and yogic practices you can transcend the human experience as well with the sheer effort of your own diligence, effort and perseverance. Devi Ma says, “Yoga is the science of self-realization and liberation. The beauty with this science is you can test it on yourself, and have a direct experience! You do not need any belief system. Inner beauty is realizing the oneness of existence, that is yoga!”
Tap Into Your Inner Guidance
Even in the worst situations, there is always the possibility for a higher vibration, expansion of consciousness, a wave of Divine love and profound healing. Rather than criticize her doctors or live in fear, Shree Devi Mayi Ma found strength, joy, bliss and inner peace through the guidance of ascended masters, such as Jesus Christ, Maha Avatar Bababji, Shiva, Gautama The Buddha, and many others. Although she is not religious, simply recalling these profound spiritual and mystical experiences brings profound tears of pure joy, bliss and gratitude for all life offers.
At that moment when she almost died of that severe anaphylactic shock reaction, Devi Ma realized that her pain was nothing compared to those who came before her. She felt in her soul, spirit, and heart that her pain was nothing compared to the pain that Jesus Christ experienced on the cross. Just as Devi Ma realized she had all the tools and inner power necessary to heal her sufferings and pain, you can, too, as you walk along the spiritual path.
Ancient Yogic Practices and the Spiritual Path
An essential tool to work with along your spiritual path is, your Divine garden, within your body temple (as Devi Ma calls it). While there are 114 chakras throughout your subtle body, the Anahata, also known as the Heart Chakra, must be opened because it connects the upper and lower realms. The Sanskrit word “Anahata” means “unstruck.” When this chakra opens it allows the energy to move upward in your subtle body. Then, you can start embracing every living being as God through your energy, and experience existence with a new sense of clarity.
Devi Ma says that your energy field is magical, and if you vibrate at a low frequency, your aura will not be able to emanate at the highest degree. Furthermore, when you’re vibrating at a low frequency, you may feel sluggish, moody, unbalanced, out-of-tune or even depressed about your inability to expand. She often speaks about the “magical wand” and how to use it in her programs.
If you’re struggling with the heavy feeling of a low vibration, Devi Ma can guide you toward the path to pure, expanded consciousness through yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Gradually, you will feel your heart begin to open so that you can spread the light from within to the world. With her loving guidance and energetic presence, you also can master the alchemy of well-being and achieve spiritual and life fulfillment.
In Radiating the Light, you will learn and be imparted into the Siddha Sat Chit Ananda Kriya meditation, a yogic kriya meditation practice that will teach you to control your life force energy, also known as prana. In addition, you will also experience the Yoga Nidra in the Womb of Creation Meditation. In this guided meditation, you will be able to enter an entirely new state of relaxation and rejuvenation that will gradually restore your life-force energy.
