Patience

Patience is the nature of Shri MatajiAs people start becoming collective, they do not bother others, they do not trouble others, but they give joy to others. They are not bothered about their going and coming, their eating and everything. They just don’t behave like mundane, usual type of people, but they are very patient – saburi, as they call it. They are in the patience.

Now this patience is most joy-giving. Patience gives you the greatest joy. When you are patient, you develop all your qualities. I think in patience you blossom the best. But patience is not just to be patient. Patience is also a kind of a state within us. With just this patience … you just watch and see. Wherever you are, you are.

Now some people are worried that they must get into the bus. Some people are worried they must reach back home. Some people are worried they must get their food in time. According to them this is discipline. This is not. This is conditioning. But what is the discipline is of patience in Sahaja Yoga, where you watch everything and you are patient. If you are in the bus, you are there. If you are standing on the road, you are there. If you are walking on the road, you are there. On the contrary, it is a good idea to walk…. It’s a very good idea. Leisurely you can walk … to feel that, “I have to walk. I have to go there.” Once you start thinking you get exhausted sitting here, even if you have not walked. So it is important that patience should be made the discipline of life….

Patience is my quality. It’s my nature which I enjoy most of all…. If I lost my way, I enjoy it because I am there to enjoy myself.

Totality of Love

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

(Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga)

We have within us a being which I call the spirit – the spirit, which is also part and parcel of the totality that is love, totality that is God, totality that is joy, totality that is knowledge. And that spirit within us is watching us. It is not watching like a guard or a police inspector. That also, we human beings cannot understand….

 The spirit is the one that is love. Can you understand total love? Can you understand something that just gives and enjoys giving and not asking for anything? Can you understand someone like that? Can you? Loving for love’s sake, that’s what is your spirit. It is watching you with that love, that total love.

That totality of love is watching you to give you that what it is. Now here, I would say you are the spirit and you are this Self. Another one, which is this awareness, is this human awareness which you have got. This human awareness has to be enlightened by that totality, that spirit. When it enlightens that, then only, you know that you are a part and parcel of the totality and that you are beautiful, you are really beautiful.

There’s some times one feels a little bashful to know how beautiful one is and so fragrant and so grand and so dignified. That new dimension one has to understand….

To understand the totality of love, total love, you have to know that these are all just flecks. The ocean, the oceans of oceans of love will wash off these specks in no time, but have faith in yourself, that’s all. Have faith in yourself. After all, you are human beings.

Shri Mataji, 1980

Buddha

Buddha

I do not know what comes first, but, of course, every mother wants her child to be good and the Holy Mother wants Her child to be a holy person. The first thing is the holiness. Now for that, how can you compel someone? The only thing that makes you understand is this: if you don’t become holy how will you get your ascent? We have to be holy. What discipline can one put for making a person holy? What can you force? What can you get angry for? The only method I use normally is to forgive. Maybe the forgiveness is the highest quality for teaching people. When they know that they have done wrong and they confess it, then you have to forgive.

In the life of Buddha, there was a man who was abusing Him without understanding and when he finished with his abuses and Buddha had left, people told him, “Do you know who you were abusing? It was Lord Buddha.” He got the fright of his life.

He said, “Where is He gone?”

“He has gone to another village.”

So he went to the other village and he said, “Sir, I am sorry for what I said. Please forgive me. It’s all wrong and I should not have done it. You can punish me the way you like.”

Lord Buddha said, “When did you do that?”

He said, “Yesterday.”

Buddha said, “I don’t know yesterday. I know only today.”

You see, when you tell these things, how great one feels, isn’t it? So your greatness, your nobility will definitely influence people. It’s not by fighting, by quarrelling, by saying harsh things that it is going to work out.

A New Awareness

Shri Mataji

You have to find out that absolute without which we are in confusion.

That absolute is within you. That’s why Sahaja Yoga is a spontaneous thing, is a living thing. “Saha” means with, “ja” means born. It is born with you, as in a seed.  All the maps of the seed that it is going to manifest are built-in. In the same way within you, your spirit and your kundalini are all already existing there and they are just waiting for a chance to give you your Self-realisation.

Before telling you about the benefits of Self-realisation, I have to tell you that you must keep your minds open as you would for any science lecture or any other lecture. There’s no jugglery or there is no shopping, guru shopping in Sahaja Yoga. It is a happening; it’s an actualisation. It is within you. It’s a living force, like a flower becomes a fruit or an egg becomes a chick; you get your realisation and you become a different personality.

A new dimension of awareness grows into you and this new dimension of awareness is an actualisation; it’s not just a mere words or any kind of a brainwash. It is an actualisation within you which happens by which you start feeling the collective consciousness. You are a part and parcel of the whole; so many have said it. We also believe in it that we are the part and parcel of the whole, but so far in our awareness, in our central nervous system, we have not felt that. So this is actually should happen to you. In this we have to accept, whatever is nourishing for our growth, after realisation. Gradually you start accepting …

Shri Mataji, 2 April 1981, Melbourne, Australia
