What happens after Shri Mataji leaves for the eternal, external Spirit World?

Just wondering what will happen with SY, self realization, the cool breeze and all the aspects, individually, of sahaja yoga after the physical Shri Mataji passes on to reside fully back in the kingdom of god within? Well the cool breezes stop? Will realization stop, change, or be different in anyway? Also on a side topic, what will happen to all the SY yogis who are so focused on praising her physical form?
Also, I read that if u don't listen to the cool breeze and start correcting certain things when they are brought up to you in vibratory form, i.e. things not approved by the spirit, then the connection to the divine, the cool breeze and the ability to attain thoughtless awareness ceases. Now, I wanted to know if it stops permanently or just until the seeker/yogi changes his ways and starts all over again from realization?
IF you could get back to me ASAP I would be grateful.
PS: how long do you think we have between the physical passing shri mataji and the end of the last judgment and its symptoms?

Subject: What happens after Shri Mataji leaves for the eternal, external Spirit World?
Thank you for asking these questions because Shri Mataji is now an octogenarian. Even though She is healthy in mind and body there is a limit to earthly existence. Thus the questions of how long She will stay and what will happen after that are on the minds of most SYs.
Yes, the majority of SYs have their attention fixated on the external, physical Adi Shakti for decades and have neglected one of the most important aspect of Self-realization i.e., attention on Her existence within in the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God). i have already explained the dependence of SYs on Her external image and related rituals. Few can cross this self-imposed handicap and truly rise to attain Brahman within. It has always been "Shri Mataji is in Cabella"; "She is going to India next month"; "Hope She comes to New York this year"; "Did She attend the musical program" ..... this external attention is pervasive.
In all my years in Sahaja Yoga i have never actually heard of any SY talking about Her presence in the Sahasrara, i.e., SYs expressing their faith and conviction that She actually resides within. That is why even ex-world leader Yogi Mahajan did not privately believe what he publicly professed in his book:
"Only those who go deep in the source discover the Golden Goddess that resides within. Her touch enlightens and enthralls the total being. It is indeed the miracle of miracles. This miracle resides in every being. The wise pursue it, the scriptures speak of it, and the saints glory in its praise." (Yogi Mahajan, The Ascent, Motilal Banarsidass Publishers, Delhi, 1997 p. 4.)
He regarded as blasphemy and the work of demonic possession when he came to know that my children were visiting the Golden Goddess daily in their Sahasraras. After successfully conspiring to get them removed from the school in Dharamsala, India, against Shri Mataji's explicit instructions not to, he worked to demonize them among SYs. This character assassination continued till he himself had to leave Sahaja Yoga a few years ago. i have to admit that he has been very successful among SYs, and some of them continue to perpetuate this negativity.
But the chickens will sooner or later come home to roost and your questions reflect their homecoming.
Q 1: So what will happen when Shri Mataji leaves?
Well, most SYs are going to feel sad and send each other emails expressing their condolences. A number of them, especially the women, are going to cry over and over again. Others will narrate stories of the glory days and blissful pujas of the past, choking off and on and try to hold back tears.
i will take a walk in the park or along the lake and enjoy the view, along with Her in my Sahasrara. A few ignorant SYs may call me cold- hearted and insensitive but why cry or feel sad when She has always been residing and guiding me from within over countless rebirths? Why should i ever cry or feel miserable when i know in heart, mind and soul that the Shakti within me has been doing everything that SYs think the physical Shri Mataji is doing, and will continue forever? i must repeat: The physical Shri Mataji does not do anything!
Q 2: Will the cool breezes stop?
Absolutely not. The cool breeze never ever came from the physical Shri Mataji. Even She has openly admitted that She does nothing. All the while it was the Adi Shakti within who was the source of all the cool breeze, healing, cures, guidance, witnessing and more. That is why the cool breeze will continue to flow long after Shri Mataji leaves this Earth.
Q 3: Will realization stop, change, or be different in anyway?
Again i have to say nothing will change because the physical Shri Mataji never did anything, though Her physical presence was necessary to enable humans to put their faith and attention on a visible entity. How many would have believed in the Great Event ordained for humanity if there was no physical manifestation of the Adi Shakti to explain in detail how to go about it?
Q 4: What will happen to all the SYs who are so focused on praising her physical form?
They will all eventually learn to focus their attention and faith on Her eternal spiritual presence within themselves. Perhaps then they will realize that they do not need any images or rituals to meditate or invoke Her blessings. Maybe at last they will begin learning in earnest the highest object of life - the attainment of Brahman in the Kingdom of God within!
Q 5: Also, I read that if u don't listen to the cool breeze and start correcting certain things when they are brought up to you in vibratory form, i.e. things not approved by the spirit, then the connection to the divine, the cool breeze and the ability to attain thoughtless awareness ceases. Now, I wanted to know if it stops permanently or just until the seeker/yogi changes his ways and starts all over again from realization?
Only if you continue to transgress over an extended period of time will the cool breeze and connection to the divine cease. The Divine is not trying to punish or force you to do good deeds. Right now i have total freedom to leave Sahaja Yoga and start enjoying my pre- Self-realization lifestyle. The Adi Shakti in the Sahasrara will never - and i mean never - stop me from exercising my freedom as a human being. The only difference is that the cool breeze and connection to the divine will slowly cease and end.
But leaving Sahaja Yoga does not mean the end. The very day you desire again, perhaps after months/years, to continue participating in the Great Event the cool breeze and connection to the Divine is again established. Kyyan, you must know in your heart that the Divine is not trying to punish or force you to do good deeds. You can take a break today from Sahaja Yoga and return a few years later to continue from where you left.
There is however one drawback in this option, and that is it will give you a shorter time frame for cleansing mind and body. Running a spiritual marathon requires excellent mental health, optimum earthly endurance and, perhaps of even more importance, an indefatigable will to remain righteous during this Kali Yuga. You will find it much harder to evolve and attain liberation if you opt for procrastinating the Last Judgment. Meditating twice a day for about 15-20 minutes does not even break you into a sweat. So why take a break in the first place?
But please do if a short period is needed to clear/accomplish important things. There is no harm is tying loose end, and may be even beneficial and advantageous. However, if it is going to take a longer period then it would not be a wise move. Anyway, these decisions should be yours only since you know your own situation and surroundings much better. The bottom line is that if you leave now it is not the end of your participation in the Great Event. You can always return to continue, even decide it is all a huge lie and leave forever.
Q 6: How long do you think we have between the physical passing Shri Mataji and the end of the last judgment and its symptoms?
All i can say is that members of this forum will probably not live long enough to see it. There are still tens of millions of very good souls on Earth who are also looking for the truth that will set them free. There is going to be no sudden and apocalyptic End when so many nations and peoples of many tongues are totally unaware of the Blossom Time. They have the right to know and decide for themselves. So let's work to make this world a better place to live by telling all about the Great Event ordained for humanity.
In the meantime enjoy the Blossom Time and learn to focus your attention on Shri Mataji within your Sahasrara. You will be more happier than many SYs when Shri Mataji finally leaves Earth.......... and more advanced as well.
be your own master,
