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
In small, small things we destroy our security…. The complete security within yourself is that you are the Self and these things are not important. If you are a secured man, your children will also find that out, that their security lies in finding their own security. They themselves will say, “Now don’t try to help us, to spoil us. Do not give us things by which we feel more insecure.” And such children will be really brave children like Shivaji was. His mother gave him all the protection, no doubt, but she made a Shivaji out of him….
Feel your own security and then the joy of that security will take you to your depth. Why are you insecure in life? Money? The person who has got, who has got now the blessings of the Divine, what more does he want? Because your God is almighty, nobody’s might is greater than that of your Father. Nobody can touch you on any point. But your faith is lacking and that’s why you should start with your faith in yourself. Make the faith sit in your Heart chakra and that faith is going to give you the joy of security. Faith is the answer for all the insecurities of the world…. The essence of the Heart chakra is to feel your own security, your own Self. Feel your own security within yourself. Only the realised can feel their security because they know they have their atma, their spirit.
Shri Mataji, 1979
The reason for dreams is that when you are sleeping your attention moves either to the supra-conscious side or to the subconscious side. Your attention starts moving and then you start seeing things which are connected with your subconscious or your collective subconscious…. You may go into your supra-conscious side where you see your future and all these things.
Bu the reason why you get your dreams actually is that the unconscious pushes within you, or we can say the Kundalini or your Atma is trying to guide you to the right path. And how does it guide you to the right path, is through dreams.
But these are misunderstood. How are you guided by these dreams? Understand these dreams, because you are so confused.
First you go deep into yourself and you touch the unconscious, sushupti. But from there, you come out. And then when you are coming out, you touch your subconscious or maybe the supra-conscious. So whatever anabhuti [feeling] you had or whatever experience you had of the depth of the sushupti gets confused. And you don’t know what you dreamt and you don’t understand and you forget it.
But those who are realised souls, go to their sushupti and see exactly what they have to know. Like many people in Bombay when I came, they didn’t know I was coming, but they were at the airport because they got the dream.
So at the sushupti level, at the deep level, you get the communication with God if you know how to go in and come out fully aware. But if you get confused with supra-conscious or subconscious areas … your chitta [attention] is not so clearcut. Then there can be a big confusion.
