All the knowledge is within you. If you only can get light there, you can see all that knowledge is within you. You don’t have to go anywhere for your knowledge. It’s all inside; everything is built in. You are built in so beautifully to become your Spirit that I don’t have to do much about. It just works out. Only thing is that one has to know what we should expect; to be the Spirit, what should be our expectations. And that also logically you must understand. It should be a logical conclusion. Not just because I say something, because you have become a member of some group, because you have paid money somewhere. It’s not that way. Reality is what it is. And logically it has to be reality…
In our evolution we are human beings, our awareness is that of human beings and this awareness of human beings is not the ultimate. If it was we would not have been seeking. It’s not the end of it. We have to reach at a point where something more has to happen to us. Now how do we approach the subject logically? In our evolution, what has happened to us? We were animals; from there we became human beings. What is so special about human beings compared to animals?…
We are made humans beings to feel that Divine Power, to manoeuvre that Divine Power and just enjoy the bliss of divinity. That Divine Power is the Collective Being, that gives us collective. The Spirit in our heart is the One, which is the Collective Being within us, which manifests that Divine Power to flow through, and that’s how, once we are connected with the mains, we start becoming what we are for. Like a machine, once it is put to the mains it gets its meaning; but this machine, though it is put to the mains, is not aware of the electricity, about My voice, anything. But a human being, when he gets connected with the mains, then he becomes aware, and this is what you must see.

• “You have to know your spirit … for without knowing your spirit you cannot know the truth.”
• “A star is shining within us and that is our spirit.”
• “Innately, within us resides the spirit which wants to enlighten you,to give you the peace, the bliss and the joy of our being.”
•”True and lasting solution to present ills can be found only by inner, collective transformation of human beings.”
• The truth which can be actualised after Self-Realisation is that you are not this body, this mind, this conditioning from the past, this ego, these emotions, but that you are the Pure Spirit.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – founder of Sahaja Yoga
A laugh of appreciation, a laugh of enjoyment – it is so pure and creates such a beautiful atmosphere. I think the whole ecological problem is in our brains…. It is not outside. It is inside us, which is reflected outside…. You are all grown-up children of mine, and I want you to know all the beauties that are within you that you have to enjoy. First of all, learn to laugh at yourself. That is the best way to enjoy yourself … we have so many other beautiful facets and such beautiful things within our personality that we have forgotten to enjoy. (Shri Mataji, 1997).
One of the basic things we should avoid is to criticise others. It is better to criticise yourself. Criticise yourself, criticise your brothers and sisters, criticise your country, criticise all the habits you have and laugh at yourself, is the best way. If you know how to laugh at yourself, then you will not object or will not stand in the way of any creativity of another person. (Shri Mataji, 1989)
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
