Every Day with Shri Mataji

LET YOUR SPIRIT RULE


My idea of bringing some of the Sahaja Yogis from the West to India in the villages of India was to make them understand that comfort is not the goal of life because we have villagers who are realized souls, who do not have any comforts which are so important to the western people, but are very happy, satisfied and peaceful people and are extremely good yogis. But that does not mean that you give up your comforts and you become godly. It is all a mental behaviour if you think by negation. It is not the way. But when you come to India, you understand that this habit of seeking comfort must be given up. If you have any, it is all right, but let not the comfort sit on your head. Let your spirit rule and not the idea that you should be comfortable or affluent. That idea should not rule you. (10 1982)
