Every Day with Shri Mataji

WE ARE PROGRESSIVE


The main thing is that you have to feel God within you. You have to become something more, by which you can feel the Divine — not through your rationality, not through your rationality by any chance, neither through your faith. If the faith is blind, you cannot know God. You will become a fanatic. If people could just remain faithful and do not become fanatic, then there is no harm. Or else even if you deny God and you do not become egoistical, then there is no harm. But that is not possible. We are progressive. We cannot stand at a point. Once we start moving, we start moving in that direction. Either we have to be fanatics or we have to be absolutely egoistical and terrible. That is how we finish off ourselves. (12 1980)
