Every Day with Shri Mataji


People will ask, "What is the truth?" Without the light, how can we explain? Supposing you find a rope lying on the road or somewhere and you are frightened. How are you to be convinced that it is not a snake, but it is just a rope lying, unless and until you put some light on that and show for definite that this is just a rope and a myth? So your attention has to be enlightened, first thing. And to get rid of your ignorance, you have to find out the truth. And then you know that the Self, the Spirit emits joy – joy which is beyond the duality of sorrow and happiness. You have to go beyond that, beyond the duality, to be that. That is your destination. (21.11.1979)
