The Divine has nothing to gain from you.
Truth has nothing to gain from you.
Truth stands on its own glory, in its dignity
It doeasn’t need anything from you, does it?
What can you do to adorn it? What can you put on that?
What can you give to that? How can you add to that?
It’s only you who is adorned. It is only you who gain it.
If you get the truth, it is you who has been enlightened.
It is not the truth that is going to receive anything from you, is it?
If that is your idea, then you are sadly mistaken.
You cannot pay fror truth. Truth is there.
It is there. Reality is there. How can you pay for it?
You must know that you are seekers. You have to get it and establish it within yourselves.
This is the truth: that you are made as an instrument of God’s power
and now you will be connected to the mains by His powers only, by His divine love
and the power will start flowing through you.
You will be manifesting that power through your spirit and you will see for yourself and enjoy that.
Shri Mataji, 1981

The first time I saw Shri Mataji was at a rare programme in Chicago in 1994 in a huge lovely hall at one of the hotels. It was just a few months after my Self Realisation.
We had driven for several hours and through the whole trip piles of questions filled my head, but the joy of reaching there and watching Shri Mataji walk in the hall in person swept all those questions away. She spoke persuasively as She always does. I wished with all my heart for my Self Realisation, as if it were for the first time. After the guests had received their Realisation, those few of us from the Mid West sang for Her as best we could. She looked at us and it was much easier to sing than ever before.
She asked to see us by city. My city’s collective, Cincinatti, pushed me to the front because I was the newest one. I felt so awkward and shy to kneel on the white cloth and come close to Shri Mataji. I was surprised by the textures of Her face which I could see so clearly in bright stage lights. I must have thought from the photographs that She was made of mist and stars. She took my hands on Her lap and looked into them and gazed a long time. I felt She was looking down, down into every speck of me, down and through to other times and places I could not know.
“Very good,” She said, and that was all…
What I learned that amazing evening was how much She cared for every one of us, but also that we have to ask for Her help. Many of the questions I had come with worked themselves out in time, but even the questions I hadn’t been able to ask myself were answered. When Shri Mataji looked at my hands I knew that She understood everything completely and I learned in that moment that I had finally come home.

Softly, gently, our Spirit guides us.
If we allow its holy intent,
We learn to surrender to the great Will
That may appear as a figment
Of the mind, a whisper of Joy to come.
Once we surrender, we learn to treasure
The knowledge that we are One
With the Great Essence, the Great Divine.
With pure hearts, we learn to shun
The earthly pleasures that lead astray.
Peace and joy and contentment are the prize
For those who allow their faith to grow.
Bliss and love eternal are the bounty
Of the Divine Communion
With those on Earth below.

More than 10 years ago in Poland we had a very troublesome person among politicians. He was trying to trouble all the political and economical issues in our country just to show his own potency. He somehow got coal miners on his side, and one day they threatened the whole country that coal miners would go on strike. They were even ready to stop distributing the coal already mined. It was a cold season; so without coal the whole country would really suffer.
Everyone was worrying because the threat was so real that they had even planned how to evacuate hospitals and other such facilities because it was said that the strike would not end until the government agreed with this man. The beginning of the general strike was marked for Thursday, and in Warsaw we have our Sahaj programs on Wednesdays.
So on Wednesday – the day before the strike – we celebrated a beautiful meditation upon Shri Adi Guru, thinking that as He is the Ocean, so He can spread His gentle and loving waves of peace all over Poland. And He did! We said mantras. We asked for sending peace all over. We really prayed for peace in the hearts and minds of Polish coal miners and all other people who were seeking the turmoil. And we meditated. And all this worked!
Next day the strike started two or three hours later than it was supposed to start and lasted only one hour. And then when the television interviewers spoke with some of the strikers they said they didn’t know why they had wanted to make this strike. It seemed they had lost interest in it. They not only didn’t want to strike, they also didn’t understand why they had wanted it, why they thought it was necessary. And nobody understood what had happened. This troublesome politician just lost his grip over these people. God’s peace entered into their hearts.
Needless to say, we were also a little bit surprised by the outcome of our humble meditation.
