One has to know that there is a divine power. You may like it or not. All this living work that is done – millions and millions of flowers which are becoming fruits, a seed becoming a tree, a particular seed becomes a particular tree, all the choices that are made, the whole organised way the chemical acts, the way the chemistry is made of periodic laws, everything you see in this world is all so well organised – there has to be somebody doing it….
Unless and until human beings are evolved, none of the problems of the world are going to be solved, none of the problems – take it from me… Whatever they have done by their thinking – say they have created democracy, they have created communism, this, that – all this nonsense has no meaning at all in reality… The detachment takes place because you become one with the spirit, which is not attached, which gives you that light, that detachment from where you can see the whole thing just as a drama going on. And you work it out very well. You become so dynamic that you are amazed at your own dynamism. Apart from that, one has to realise if there is a power which is an all-pervading power, that power itself thinks, organises and looks after you.
Shri Mataji, Brighton UK, 20 May 1982
When we try to play games with ourselves, we miss the point because it is the Self which is going to emit. It is the Self that is going to give you your glory. It is the Self which is going to bestow all the blessings of divine love and all the securities and all the help that are deserved by you …. So we have to put our life fixed for something that is noble, enlightening and higher. Hypocrisy will keep you always out of it.
So I have to request you to face yourself, love yourself, respect yourself, understand yourself and stand on your self-respect and see for yourself that you are the king of kings, that you are the one who is to be worshipped. You are the one who is the emblem of God’s love. Such a beautiful thing it is.
… With humility, with surrender of your ego, you are worshipping your Self. You are not degrading it, you are not analysing it, but you are absorbing the beautiful power and the light of your Atma into your attention.
Shri Mataji, 21 March 1988
Self is nothing but joy. A joyous person is definitely a person who has got his Self expressing through his joy. Such a person is so joy-giving, so humorous and never degrading to anyone. In every small thing, it sees a beauty. And the nature of every creation is so beautiful….
If you have the problem of unhappiness, just be on the watch-out and see why. Why have you developed this kind of a funny attitude towards everything? Why can’t you enjoy everything? You go on watching this person, that person. You never enjoy. While if you watch the children, it is very interesting….
There was a joke about a child. They had a guest in their house and he was eating. So this child saw that man eating. He said, “Mama, he doesn’t eat like a horse. You said he eats like a horse.”
So that is what they are – very simple, very simple-hearted- and that is how they correct people.
