Narendra has invited me to say a word about the Divine Mother this Navratri. No subject interests me more.
The relationship between the Holy Father Brahman and the Divine Mother Shakti forms the basis of all the most important relationships we have. (1)
We are, at this dimension of existence, spirits within a material body. The body, together with everything at all material, is made by the Mother Shakti. The spirit – as an individuated consciousness – is “made” by the Father Brahman. (2)
The relation between spirit and matter (mater, Mother) teaches us the relation between the Father and the Mother.
If we want an image to capture the relationship between the “two” of them I suggest the image of a person with a fan before her face who removes it to reveal … nothing.
Brahman is unknowable, invisible, silent, still. Shakti is knowable, visible, audible, and active. Only Shakti can reveal Brahman to us.
She is all we can know. Of herself she said on An Hour with an Angel:
Steve: How are you known, Mother?
Divine Mother: I am known as all. I am known as love. I am known as dynamic action, as movement, as constant change, as fulfillment. Sometimes you tend to think of me as the Holy Spirit, but there is more to me than that, and there is a shade of the Father within there as well.
But I am known by the movement within you and the movement within your Earth, within all things, within all universes.
I am a birther and a giver. … I am the rhythm. I am the flow. …
I am the beginning and I am … the end. … Does this answer your question, child? (3)
Indeed it did.
She raises up our consciousness in her school of matter to the point where we’re ready to “meet” the Father and then drops her fan to reveal him.
As Narendra pointed out, she is Aum/Amen, the universal creative vibration, though that is not her totality. (4) She is also the love that Aum works on to fashion its creations from. She is creator, creating, and creation; creation, preservation, and transformation. (5)
One has only to study fractals to see the care with which she designs things. Or look through a telescope one minute and a microscope the next. She designed the least and the greatest, in this universe and all others.
Now, Sri Ramakrishna says, can you see how grand she is?
Yet grand as she is, she deigns to speak to her devotees through channels in this era. I know many people who’ve spoken to the Divine Mother in the course of their lightworker duties. And I have myself during eight years of radio broadcasting.
This era is blessed beyond all others through its access to her and by being able to serve her so openly, freely, and deeply.
There’s no escaping her. There’s only ultimate surrender and freedom.
Jai Ma! Victory to the Mother! Her victory is inevitable. It’s our victory. It’s the victory of the One in all.
(1) If you said, under your breath, “and the Divine Child Atman,” that would be the Holy Trinity’s equivalent in Hinduism.
(2) The knot in consciousness or granthi creates the sense of separation and individuality, which disappears with the “final” enlightenment.
Its details no one knows. Like Sri Ramakrishna’s salt doll that went to measure the ocean and never returned, no one has returned from “final” enlightenment to describe it.

(5) Therefore she is Akar, Ukar, and Makar = rajas, sattwa, and thamas. She is also Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
