Shri Mataji: “When they get any blessings of material wealth, it will happen ..again the same that garden of Eden is coming back to you and when it starts coming back to you again, you go back to the same stages.
Now you must understand, that you have to be supreme, so you must master all this. Nothing is important, nothing is important, only the Spirit is important. Then only you can get out of. This also can act as a Temptation for you, you see.
All the Blessings that are coming to you are Temptations. So you should be prepared.
Nothing more is important than the Spirit, you see. We are prepared for any kind of thing to achieve the spirit. We are not bothered as to what blessings we get and everything. But what we want is the Freedom of Spirit which is not hankering after anything – hankering after human things…
So you will be like a lamp, which is giving light, without getting involved into the lamp itself, whether it is of gold or silver or anything. It can burn the light even if it is made of clay ..
That’s what is to be achieved by Sahaja Yogis .. (what is) to be understood. Because this is a very precarious stage where I find people are again drifting down.
So now we have to humble down ourselves. To say: ‘I have not .. anything in my life so far. I have to know.’
Because, this is the Knowledge of the Root, which you do not know, this is a new knowledge for you. What can you question about?! You don’t know anything..
You have to know about the Knowledge of the Root, so humble down yourself and then only you will receive the Blessings of this New Growth. That is: the growth that is inward, inside the Antar-Yoga. Unless and until you humble down, it won’t work out. You have to humble down.
Because as soon as you start asking questions, it’s your Ego that is asking questions. So humble down..to grow further with the Knowledge of the Roots.” Shri Mataji (on 26/09/1982 – during the first visit to Viena, Austria – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation had a powerful meeting with the local sahaja yoga practitioners .. lots of subtle knowledge was shared)
