“It is an individual journey towards God when you meditate. And when you reach there, then you become collective. Before that it’s an absolute individual journey within. It’s absolutely individual journey!… You should be able to see this. In this journey nobody is your relation, nobody is your brother, nobody is your friend. You are absolutely alone; absolutely alone. You have to move alone within yourself. Don’t hate anyone.
Don’t be irresponsible. But in the meditative mood you are alone. No one exists there, you alone, and once you enter into that Ocean then the whole world becomes your family. The whole world is your own manifestation. All the children become your children. And you treat all people with equal understanding. The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside your Spirit, and start seeing through the eyes of the Spirit. There’s such Calm, such Peace, such Bliss within you!
You have to be ready for that journey. That journey is alone in your meditativeness and the more you find something in your meditation, the more you want to go and distribute it to others! That has to, if that does not come into you, then it has not worked out. There is no purity, there’s some sort of a bias.
In that individual pursuit, whatever you find, you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of a person who has been really meditating. The one who is meditative and has not been able to distribute what he has found, is cheating himself and cheating others as well. Because that joy that you receive in your meditation has to be distributed, has to be given, has to be shown! It should flow in your being as a light radiates from every illumined lamp.
We don’t have to take a vow to say this is an enlightened light, in the same way, a saint should not be certified that he is a saint. The depth you achieve within yourself spreads all over, it is such an action and reaction. The more deeper you become the radiation is much more. A simple person, very ordinary person, uneducated person, can be like that. We have, you know, one gentleman called Vardic (sounds like) in Bombay , he’s an old man, he’s so deep, he radiates. People depend on him, he radiates love, so meditative. You don’t have to spend too much time on meditation, but whatever you spend time, whatever you gain is has to be visible outside, how you radiate and how you give it to others.
That’s the quality of the saints you have to be. Unless and until you become deeper we cannot save other Sahaja Yogis and we cannot save those who are not Sahaja Yogis. You have to rise higher and higher to pull the whole curtain up. Those who try to rise higher pull the whole thing upward and they give a pull to everyone who ascend with them. So just try to keep your aim clear cut.” – Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, 21 March 1983
