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
If you want to be positive, it is very easy. And for that you should see, “Where is your attention?” Are you only seeing problems or are you seeing some fun in it? There are people who cannot make fun of anything. If it is a sunny day, they will cry, “Oh God, what a sunny day!” And if it is a day with clouds, they will say, “Oh, what a day!” Nothing can please them.
But to enjoy the positivity in every negativity is the capacity of a Sahaja yogi. The negativity does not exist. It is an ignorance. Also, it is not ignorance because ignorance also does not exist. If everything is the All-pervading Power, then how can there be ignorance? But supposing, in the folds of this power, if you hide, run away, you will say that there is negativity. It is like, you hide yourself in a cave, close it properly and say that there is no sun.
Shri Mataji, Galate, Italy, 6 August, 1989
This all-pervading power is the power of divine love. It thinks, it organises, it plans, it loves. It is the one which is the subtle of the ether, you can call it. It is the subtle of the matter. It is the subtle of your emotions. It is the subtle of your mental power. It is the subtle of your evolutionary power. But all integrated and coordinated in complete synchronisation. So efficient it is that you are amazed how it works.
Now you see these flowers, how beautiful they are. And they appear on the trees or on the shrubs where they are supposed to be… At the right time these flowers become the fruits. A mango tree will give you a mango; an apple tree gives you an apple. Who does this choice? Is this great power which is all-pervading.
But we have never felt its existence. We have taken it for granted that it exists and we don’t want to know about it. We don’t want to know why we have become human beings from amoeba. What is the purpose of this life? Why nature has taken so much trouble to make us human beings? There must be some purpose for it. We never think of the purpose and we lead a purposeless life. We are not here to just live like animals.
But we have to do something much more because why should we have this human body and this human awareness? This human awareness, when it reaches a state where it starts thinking why are we here, that time you become a seeker. But you have to know that you have to become the Spirit, which is a collective being within ourselves.
Shri Mataji, 11 June 1985, Founex, Switzerland
