“Absorption is the only way you grow. How does a tree grow? By absorption. What is the mouth of absorption? Is Nirvichara. What is Nirvichara? Where you do not think about it.
Now when I say you are not to think, at a lower stage, people will say, “Oh, you know, She’s very dominating, She’s very dominating, I must say!” This is the idea will come. But absorption is only possible when you have the faith, and the whole thing goes into you, you just go on sucking it like a child.
The whole thing goes into you just like a lake which is without any ripple. It reflects the complete, entire creation in it, complete. If there are any ripples, then there’s diffusion, there’s confusion. So this is the stage of faith which starts from the second to go to the third.”
Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, Old Alresford Place , Winchester ( England ), 18 May 1980
