“First you have to make an effort to be balanced. Then you ascend.
So one has to know that stage by stage it happens to you and you do not became a hypocrite. But you become real. And reality is shown by its own being.
That is how you become. So understand the reality within yourself, face it, solve it. Some such people could try to sit at the front or sort of try to show off. But that is not important.
What is important is how much you know yourself, it is Self-Realization. Once you develop that then you know others in a real way, and not artificially, and then the enjoyment is complete.
Like a bee will never go to an artificial flower ..
Human beings have to become a bee.”
(excerpt from Advises given in 1984, in UK to sahaja yogis by the founder of Sahaja Yoga – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)
“.. Be the gurus, so that through your own character and through your own personalities, the way you practice Sahaja Yoga in your own life and manifest the light, others will follow you.
You are the channels. Without the channels, this all-pervading power (Param Chaitanya) cannot work out, that’s the system.
If you see the Sun, its Light spreads through its Rays.
From your heart the blood flows through arteries; they become smaller and smaller. You are the arteries which are going to flow this blood of my Love to all the people. If the arteries are broken, it will not reach the people. That is why you are so important; very, very important. The bigger you become, the bigger artery you become, then you encompass more people.
By that also you are more responsible.
Guru must have the dignity, as I have told you last time. Guru means the weight, is the gravity. Gurutwa means gravity. You must have the gravity, by your weight. ‘Weight’ means the weight of your character, weight of your dignity, the weight of your behavior, the weight of your faiths, and your light.
You become the guru not through frivolousness and vanity, cheapness, vulgar language, cheap jokes, anger, temper: all must be avoided completely. With the weight of your sweetness, of your tongue, the dignity will attract people, just like the flowers when loaded with nectar attract the bees from all over;
in the same way you’ll be attracting people. But be proud of that; be very, very proud of that, and have sympathies for others and care for others. :-)”
(Excerpt from Shri Mataji’s Talk during Guru Puja 1980 – an international event)
