“Today the time has come to seek God because we have got this svatantreya, the one that is in the awareness. Now we have to have the freedom of the Spirit, the svatantreya, we have to know the mechanics of this sva, that is yourself, your Spirit.
And this is what one has to take to and when there is a demand, people know, these negative forces also know, they come from everywhere and create all these false images and come to you. Somebody will come with a big hairdo, you see, and stand before you showing some diamonds coming down. Are you asking for diamonds?
Think about it, do you want diamonds? What is this? Somebody is giving you diamonds, for what, why to have diamonds? Just ask, do you want diamonds? Then you go to the market and buy the diamonds. God is not bothered about diamonds, what diamonds you have got, how many diamonds you need.
He’s bothered about one diamond which is your Spirit. You have to get to your Spirit, that’s what God knows. What is diamond for Him, is not even equal to the dust particle of His feet. Why should He give you something that is dust? He should give you something that is great, parama, supreme, and that’s what one should see.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 28 February 1983, extract from public programme, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
