The Inner Pluto


In recent days, humanity has managed to gain unprecedented access to Pluto and her neighborhood. This achievement of human seeking endeavor reflects our inner evolution.

Our inner subtle system of chakras and channels maps to other sysetms in the universe, including our Sun’s planetary system. Mars corresponds to the first chakra, moon to the left channel, sun to the right channel and 6th chakra. Pluto corresponds to the crown chakra.

The crown chakra was a mystery, much like Pluto. This mysterious region of our subtle system was demystified with the revolutionary work of Shri Mataji, that resulted in the en masse opening of the crown chakra, the Sahasrara. This phase of our inner evolution began with Shri Mataji’s opening of the collective crown chakra in 1970, and as all external achievements follow inner achievements, human’s destiny to reach this heavenly body was on course.

Let us celebrate the external achievement that acknowledges what humanity has truly achieved in recent times: unfettered, unrestricted access to the 7th heaven within – the Sahasrara Chakra.

Earth Day Every Day

“If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves,” says Shri Mataji. “Mother Earth teaches us balance. If she was not in a balance, we would have been all finished. She teaches us gravity… Without any expectations she gives us; whether we respect her not, whether we’ll treat her not, we give her.”

“It is the Mother Earth which provides the flowers and the fruits and other bounties… She creates beautiful flowers, beautiful trees, everything for us with out any grudge. And moreover that She nourishes us despite the fact we are doing so many sins against Her.”


On this Earth Day let’s make sure we don’t upset the delicate balance of Mother Nature.

Enjoy the beauty of our amazing Mother Earth with the blissful meditation music.

The Water Element in Us: Qualities and Powers

  1. October 15, 2011 7:10:17 AM EDT
  2. Imagine still water. It will soon stagnate and become a candidate for landfill. Now imagine flowing water, any flowing water. It has dynamism, it nourishes, it glistens in the sun and it satisfies the thirst of others. That is the difference between having a quality and developing a power.

    So what are the powers granted to us through meditation? This article focusses on the powers granted to us at the third spiritual center, the Nabhi Chakra. The expression of this subtle chakra is the solar plexus in our nervous system. The primary element associated with this center is water.
  3. Power #1: Be the Cool

  4. November 12, 2011 7:45:54 PM EST
  5. Water element allows us to cool others. It helps to soothe others, and bring them to a cooler state. Are you able to calm down the anxiousand the angry? Then you’ve really got the power of cool.

    Power #2: Nourish
  6. February 15, 2011 11:25:22 AM EST
  7. Water has the innate ability to quench the thirst, supply the necessary support for growing food and ultimately satisfying our hunger. At the spiritual level, a person with an enlightened water element quenches the spiritual thirst in others. If your water element is flowing, others who seek the spirit should feel satiated in your words or just by your presence.
  8. Power #3: Purify

  9. August 22, 2011 4:42:05 PM EDT
  10. Water purifies. It makes our presence wash over others and make them forget about the illusions of their burdens.
  11. Power #4: Permeate

  12. November 4, 2011 12:41:04 PM EDT
  13. Think: Water on soil. It quickly gets to the roots. A person with their water element enlightened can quickly and easily get to the root of any given problem.
  14. Power #5: Reflecting

  15. November 12, 2011 10:46:15 AM EST
  16. This is one quality that can be a bit tricky. The water element within you makes you a mirror that reflects the truth around you. So a person who gets to know you starts seeing their own reflection within you. This is a double edged sword: if the person is innately good, they will love you with all their hearts. If they have darkness within them….
  17. The rest…
  18. November 26, 2010 5:27:26 PM EST
  19. The above were the top five qualities which become powers when they act upon others. There are certainly more. When you think of powers at the solar plexus, think water. What are some other powers of water that you see within others? Please reflect and respond in the comments area.

Take Care of Your Garden and It Will Take Care of You

For the gardener, spring is a time of cultivating and sowing… preparing the earth… planting the seeds of new life.

Each year, I begin by clearing away the debris that winter has cast off and tilling the soil to prepare it for receiving new life. This task always seems daunting at first. I gaze out over the landscape, pondering, planning, designing… Where should I start? What should I do with this barren patch by the fence that has been usurped by dandelions and pokeweed? Can I shape it into something beautiful and meaningful?

And then I remember that gardening is not supposed to be a competition. It’s not about driving yourself to a constant state of agitation because something needs tending, mending, nurturing, or pruning. It’s about looking for ways to enhance the raw beauty that Nature has given me to work with. It’s about simply enjoying and appreciating the beauty of my own creation.

Sometimes I just sit in the loose, freshly-tilled soil of the petunia bed or in the freshly mown grass bordering the hosta gardens, letting Mother Earth cast out my own debris, clear out problems within me. It is in those moments that I understand that gardening becomes a way of growing into a new life.

Nurturing young plants to maturity requires vigilance. But Nature is patient and compassionate with me, sending out small warnings when I neglect my responsibilities as steward… stalks droop, leaves wilt and turn brown, petals fall to the ground. You’re not holding up your end of the bargain! they warn.

If you take care of your garden, it will take care of you.

The Positive Greenhouse Effect

Spring is a time of intentions. New beginnings. Fresh starts. For Mother Earth — and the humans who behold and nurture it — it is a time of awakening and emergence. For the nature-lover who gardens under glass during the cold winter months, it’s time to return to the earth what was borrowed from it the autumn before.

I have always been drawn to glass gardens. The very sight of a greenhouse has always sparked curiosity about what might be growing inside… seedlings for next year’s garden…colorful perennials newly rooted from cuttings…a family’s treasured collection of heirloom orchids.

Seven years ago, I finally built my own greenhouse. My original goal was simply protection: winter shelter for temperature-sensitive annuals that could then be returned to the gardens when spring arrived. But the rewards far exceeded my expectations — the splendor of perpetual blooms and foliage from my studio window on gray, wintry days…the luxury of eating fresh, homegrown fruits, vegetables and herbs year-round. Conventional gardening seasons no longer existed.

There’s something comforting and restorative about working in the greenhouse. It becomes a private sanctum that buffers you from the everyday stresses of the outside world, not to mention inclement weather. Outside, the north wind may be howling, cold rain may be pounding the roof. But inside my greenhouse, it’s warm and dry and ever-green, and I instantly slip into the natural rhythm of nurturing new life while — consciously or not — contemplating my own.

In this protective world of my own making, my results depend entirely on my own skill. My hands move through most soil in staging beds and seed trays, small microcosms of Mother Earth, who absorbs all my negative thoughts and feelings and suffuses me with the feeling of “this is what life is all about.”

There’s nothing more gratifying than watching your seeds and cuttings grow and thrive throughout the winter, storing nutrients for a brilliant emergence in the spring. Because I can control every aspect of my greenhouse environment, there’s virtually no plant beyond my reach and no end to my personal gardening growth.

Planting, fertilizing, watering, harvesting, or contemplating… whatever I’m doing out there, I’m always at peace.
