“A human being is part of a whole,
called by us the ‘Universe,’
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings,
as something separated from the rest –
a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires
and to affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circles of compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Einstein
“Magnanimity of mind is very pleasing and it attracts others. This magnanimity lies within human being and is awakened by Kundalini. But how can those people have this joy of spontaneity who are living in artificial atmosphere ? Although Kundalini has been awakened and She has pierced Brahmarandra (the centre of the crown chakra) yet Heart must be pierced. But some Sahaja Yogis have hearts like stones, absolutely devoid of love; they use sarcastic words while talking to others and want to show that they are great. On many occasions I have seen, people push others or shout at others even in my presence. Particularly, when you shout at the children, I feel pain in my heart. At least Sahaja Yogis should have deep love for each other.When you know that you are the children of the same (spiritual) Mother, why do you look down upon some people ? Are you perfect ? Are there no faults in you ? We only talk of universal love. If you have no love for each other amongst you, then in which mankind will it be seen ? All I want to tell you is to clean your minds of venomous thoughts that you have for other Sahaja Yogis. If a Sahaja Yogi visits your town, invite him, look after him, as if he is your brother. His happiness will purify your homes. I cannot understand how there can be groups among the Sahaja Yogis,
because every moment your condition is improving or going down. Know that making such groups is disastrous. Look at the good qualities of others and enjoy their love. Don’t worry about their bad qualities. Leave them for me. You will realize in Meditation that this is the only way of Opening the Fountains of Bliss.”Shri Mataji – the founder of sahaja yoga meditation
“The another oath we have to take today that we’ll respect every Sahaja Yogi from our heart, because they are made in the form of Shri Ganesha.
We’ll not make fun of them, we’ll not laugh at them. Do not put your ego on other people. Don’t think that you understand everything. Don’t think that you know everything. Respect each and every person, not for what he has read or for what he has learnt, but because he is a great soul.
I feel the whole West suffers from one, one simple disease, that is, they do not know how to respect anyone. Whatever doesn’t suit their mind they will never accept, nor will they respect. With their ego they want to judge everyone and condemn everyone. So, get out of it ! And tell yourself: ‘I don’t know anything. I was a stupid fool with my ego.” Humble down yourself in your heart, open your heart, and love each other.
Respect and Love (for each other) are the two things you have to promise to Shri Ganesha!
If you cannot do that, your ascent is going to be very difficult.” Shri Mataji
