Every Day with Shri Mataji


When this I-ness goes away, the Self rises. What is there to feel hurt? What is there to feel bad? What is there to hurt others? Yes, all right, you are cheated, very good –at least you have not cheated anyone. Be happy about it. But once you are without ego means you have surrendered yourself. No one can cheat you. Can you understand that? No one can cheat you because there is some higher force, which is looking after you. This is the way we should understand Buddha. We should know our Buddha qualities. This is how our ego can be dissolved. When you say, "Mother, we surrender to You," that just means that you give that horrible ego a complete holiday. It means that. That is how this ego disappears.... You just enjoy everything. (4.08.1991)
