Advice given by H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi:
"The reflection of Adi Shakti within you is the Kundalini. Whatever is created on this Universe and in many Universes is the work of the Adi Shakti. Now many people believe that there is one God—it’s true, there’s one God—God Almighty. But He has His own powers which he can embody into someone and can get His own manifestation expressed. So first of all He created the power of Adi Shakti. When it was created, then there was a sound, the sound that we call as OM—logos or anything you call it; the primordial sound—and these three powers came out of that sound, as aa, oo and ma [a, u, m]— om [aum]. The Adi Shakti is the one who embodies the desire of God Almighty. The desire of God Almighty comes out of His compassion and for His own expression, for His own manifestation, for His own reflection. I would say that He must be tired of loneliness so He must have thought of creating a partner who will manifest His desires.
Thus, the power of God Almighty separated from Him and formed an embodiment of His compassion, His desire to create. They say in Sanskrit Chitvilas, the enjoyment of the Adi Shakti. Chit is attention. The attention has its own joy and to manifest that joy of our attention; She created all the universes, She created this Mother Earth, She created all this nature, She created all the animals, She created all the human beings and She created all the Sahaja Yogis. This is how the whole creation has worked out.
At this juncture, one may ask that “Why did She not straight forward create human beings?” That was the idea of God Almighty, just to create human beings. But Adi Shakti, being the Mother, She had Her own way of expression. She thought She must create the mirrors for God Almighty to see His face, to see His image, to see His character and that’s how this long range of evolution took place. This evolution had to work out this way because they had to know from where they come. We must know that we come from nature. Even nature should know it comes from the Mother Earth, and Mother Earth herself has her own Kundalini—and she too is not just a dead earth, but she knows, she thinks, she understands and she regulates."
