“So you have to believe in yourself and enjoy the way gently you are sweeping into the current of your Mother’s Love. Just enjoy that. Like a flower that falls into the current and flows and enjoys all the beauties of that current. In the same way you should enjoy. When that enjoyment comes into you, you will start trusting. And trust your Mother.
I try many things to correct you ; but trust in one thing, that whatever I try for you or do anything, anything I may do for you it is just to cleanse you. That’s my job. Maybe sometimes you might feel I am publicly saying things for you. Maybe your images are being ruined by that, or whatever you may think. That’s not the way. It’s for your “hita” it’s for the well-being of your Spirit and that is the most difficult job.
With all this trust in your heart, first trust yourself, trust others, other Sahaja Yogis. ‘Love thy neighbour as thyself.’ Who is thy neighbour?! It’s a Sahaja Yogi. Stand by him.
And trust your Mother. As I have trusted you, you have to trust me and it will work out. Open your heart to this trust. You should not worry whether it would be absolutely respectable or not, because heart knows. Whatever your heart will do in its genuine form will be respectable because there resides your Spirit which manifests. That will look after it. By outward forms whatever you try it’s not going to work out. It is that trust in your loving heart that is going to do it.
It doesn’t matter. You see today she (a sahaja yogini) brought some flowers. There were some supposed to be weeds according to her. She went to the station and there she was taking some f lowers out and the station master and his wife were very sweet. They said, ‘Go ahead. They are only weeds. You can have them.’ And they are so fragrant! One of the most fragrant flowers I have ever seen. They are just weeds. They do not conform to any formal flowers or anything but just a few flowers attached to other flowers were most fragrant.
(the above is a short excerpt from a spontaneous lecture of Heart & Love addressed specifically to sahaja yoga meditation practitioners in UK, in 1981-08-02. Fyi: “Mataji” means “Revered Mother” so many of us that practise this form of meditation and connection we refer to Shri Mataji in an informal way as ‘Mother’ because the founder of sahaja yoga meditation is always so loving and compassionate and intimately close to her disciples .. even though Shri Mataji has received so much international praise as a “formally-officially” recognized and highly respected Saint and Yoga master, teacher and benefactor)
