God is not going to fall at your feet June 15, 2014


“You don’t have to pay for it, you don’t have to exert for it, you don’t
have to do anything, but you have to desire. This is the point I am trying
to make, that if you do not desire from your heart, then God is not going
to fall at your feet, now please desire for Me, is He?

It’s a simple thing like that, and if you people understand that you have to really desire it,
because it’s such a vicious circle I must tell you, that this Kundalini is
not here the picture, the Kundalini is the pure desire within you.

Is the desire which is not yet manifested, it is not yet awakened in the sense
that it is acting, but it has not acted. So, if so, how much important it
is that you should have the desire to be one with the Divine, to be in
Yoga, to be one with your Spirit.”

*Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 6 June 1983, extract from public program,
Holborn Library, London, UK.*

 

Forgive yourself June 10, 2014


“Now as I told you that you have no business to judge yourself and make yourself miserable. You have to forgive yourself, because this Ocean of Love above all is the Ocean of Forgiveness. And you cannot commit any mistakes that cannot be dissolved in this ocean.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 10 June 1988, extract from public programme, Graz, Austria.

Expectations June 1, 2014


Expectations

You believe that God is omnipresent, omnipotent and all-pervading. In fact, you believe that He is in every atom. As natural corollary of this belief you must also know that God knows what you want or what your need is. If the first proposition is true, then second proposition has to be true. It would follow, therefore, that those who know that God is omnipotent and all-pervading are bound to accept that God is all-knowledgeable and therefore is aware of all your problems.

In spite of this fact, we always go to God with certain expectations. Expectations can be of various types, but are basically self-centered or are pertaining to people or relations you are attached to, and then you pray to God that He should grant you a particular relief, or a job promotion, or some benefit to you or your near ones, etc.

When you go with this frame of mind, then most of the time you are disappointed. Hypothetically speaking, if your expectations are symbolized in A and what you get is, let us say, B; then A minus B is your disappointment. And then you have to attribute this disappointment to someone. The pessimists will attribute it to their bad luck and will always curse themselves for not being worthy of God’s favour.

The optimists will straight away blame God Himself, and they say that this God is not good and that we should shift to some other God. In this way you keep on shifting from God to God, but disappointment is always there. This may even make you anti-God and an atheist, ultimately. Now take a case where you do not go to God with any expectations. Therefore, the expectations are zero, and let us say that you get B as the reward. Therefore, B minus zero is B which is always surplus.

You should also distinguish between your expectations and desires and pure desires. Pure desire is always for the benefit of the other, and therefore you are entitled to carry pure desires to the Divinity. I once remember, I was travelling with Shri Mataji from Sydney to Canberra and it was very hot and the air conditioning of the car was thoroughly inadequate.

Shri Mataji was sweating and I was fanning Her with a newspaper, but I somehow felt that the heat was oppressive and that the weather should give some respite to Her. Reading my mind, She asked me a question as to what I was thinking, to which I told Her frankly that I was unable to see Her suffer because of heat. So She told me that I should make a pure desire and the weather would change.

So I closed my eyes and made a Pure desire that the weather should change. Within five minutes, dark clouds gathered from nowhere and it started raining, and the intensity of heat was thus reduced and Shri Mataji said, “See, if you make a pure desire then it will always be fulfilled.”

Coming back to expectations, I may mention here that once you are connected to your divinity through your Self Realization, you should feel assured that you have been admitted into the Kingdom of God, that you are His subject and therefore He is duty-bound to look after you, irrespective of what you expect of Him. So please do not expect when you are in Sahaja. Only pray to Shri Mataji that She should make you what She wants you to be.

With all my blessings,

You have to respect yourself May 24, 2014


“It is all within you and you have to just reach there somehow. You have to
respect yourself. And you have to know that there is a meaning to your
life, which is not for just wasting it like everybody else does.

Life isnot just for collecting money, making insurances and then dying.

All theirlives they cry and when they die others cry for them. So what’s the use,
this kind of a crying society, while God Almighty has created this
beautiful universe and has created human beings at the epitome of
evolution?

And He wants you to enter into the Kingdom of God to enjoy the
blessings. This is what it is you have to get through your
Self-Realization.”

*Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 21 May 1989, extract from public program,
Barcelona, Spain.*

 

Feel God within you May 18, 2014


“The main thing is that you have to feel God within you. You have to become something more by which you can feel the Divine, not through your rationality, not through your rationality by any chance, neither through your faith. If the faith is blind, you cannot know God. You’ll become a fanatic.

If people could just remain faithful and do not become fanatic, then there is no harm. Or else even if you deny God and you do not become egoistical, then there is no harm. But that’s not possible. Weare progressive. We cannot stand at a point. Once we start moving, we start moving in that directions. Either we have to be fanatics or we have to be absolutely egoistical and terrible. That’s how we finish off ourselves.”  *Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 12 May 1980, extract from public program, Caxton Hall, London, UK.*

 

 

 

Biggest weapon you have got – is to forgive May 12, 2014


“Just make that anger into forgiveness and you will see the person, instead of you getting into problems, he will get into problems. Anger will upset you, but forgiveness will upset him, automatically. It’s the biggest weapon you have got – is to forgive. And this is shown in Buddha’s character throughout.” - Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 4 August 1991,
