On the subtle level, North America corresponds to the 5th chakra
of the subtle system (Vishuddhi) and also to the Virata (the
cosmic, primordial Being). It is no wonder that it is the melting
pot of so many nationalities, races and cultures, beautifully
combined to form the multicolored tapestry of our country. It
is the center of collectivity, global communication and responsibility.
That is why so many world organizations like the United Nations
are based in this country, and also that is why American culture,
from Hollywood to fastfoods, exists everywhere.
However, America has the power to spread good ideas or bad
ideas, spirituality or falsehood, purity or immorality, violent
images or beautiful ones, through its far-reaching media. It
plays a role of great responsibility in the subtle body of our
planet, as it is America's duty to spread the message of truth,
benevolence and brotherly love to all nations. Above all, in
a radio address to American listeners in California, 1983, Shri
Mataji concludes her talk by saying that it is America's role
to spread the ideal of freedom, not seen as abandonment to one's
desires, but the true freedom where there are no enslavements
or bad habits, just the complete freedom of our Spirit. It is
Self Realization, the awakening of our Spirit and our connection
to the all-pervading reality, that makes this true freedom possible,
enabling us to experience the subtle, divine knowledge on our
central nervous system.
