The author of this personal experience has had an old car for many, many years. Over this time, there have been many occasions when the inextricable happened. For example, on one occasion, the car continued to run for hundreds of kilometres, even though the fuel tank was close to empty. Now, unfortunately, the old vehicle has finally been put to rest.
In this story, the author describes another of these events.
It was time for registration of my car, and I had to find a new mechanic as I had moved. I knew I had to get the brake pads replaced because at the previous inspection for registration I had been told that they would definitely have to be replaced to pass the next inspection. I had also had a safety check that revealed the same thing. I was a bit concerned, as I had experienced dishonest mechanics in the past and it had cost me a lot of money. This time I went thoughtless, as I knew that this was the way to make the best decisions. I chose the closest mechanic.
I had to book the vehicle in for inspection on the same day that a film about Shri Mataji was being shown in Newcastle. The job would take about an hour and a half. I was a little bit worried that I might not make it to the cinema on time. So I said to myself, “Not this thought,” a few times, and the worries stopped. I settled down for the wait.
Only twenty minutes had passed when I saw my car appear from the workshop. I was sure that something major must have been wrong for it to re-appear so quickly. I waited for the bad news. The owner of the workshop called me over, and once again I could not believe my ears.
The owner told me, “We didn’t replace the brake pads because there is nothing wrong with them.” I blurted out the story of the two inspections. Again, I was stunned as she said, “I remember that you said that. So I got three mechanics to check the brakes and they all agreed there was nothing wrong with them.”
When I recovered from the incredible news, I replied, “Well, I don’t know what the biggest miracle is: the fact that somehow the brake pads have repaired themselves; or that you are honest enough to tell me. After all, you could have just done what I asked you to and I would be none the wiser!”
The owner smiled and told me that they were a family business and would never be dishonest. She asked if I wanted the inspection report needed for the registration, as the car was fine. Of course I agreed, as I still had plenty of time to get to the cinema for the film.
Obviously, I had picked the right mechanic. Once again, I was helped to make the right decision through Sahaja Yoga.

Peace is only possible if there is genuine divine love within you flowing; otherwise, a talk of peace is all useless. I have known people who have got a peace award. I don’t know why they got it. They have no peace within.
You must have the peace within, and that peace is only possible when you are transformed, and transformed into a new human being, a new personality, about which all the prophecies are there. All the scriptures have talked about it. All the incarnations and all the saints have talked about it. That transformation is at hand. If you want to have that transformation, it is not at all difficult, but you must know you are capable of getting that transformation very easily and retaining it.
Shri Mataji, 4 December,1997, New Delhi, India
When you become the ocean, then you are not bothered what shore you go to, where you travel. You are not bothered. You are only with the ocean, moving up and down. That is how it is a living ocean of love, and that is what we have to develop – without dominating others, without showing off.
It should be that the whole thing should be contained within yourself…. It should be all within yourself, and that is the most enjoyable thing…. This is something that if you have it within yourself, you are fully filled within your Self. So what is most important? What is so much needed? Nothing. You are completely filled with yourself, contented with yourself and then you want to share. This is the ideal way of dealing with the Sahasrara, and I am sure the day will come when this whole world’s Sahasrara has to be opened out….
It is very important to understand how valuable you are, how remarkably important you are, born at this time. You got your Realisation for what? To emancipate this world, to transform human beings, to take the whole of this world into the realm of God. That is what you are here for.
