Every Day with Shri Mataji


To say that we are all one, that we are brothers and sisters and one God has created us, it is good to give a lecture like that and many do that. It is just a big lecture. To feel that you are one something has to happen. Your heart has to be opened out – not rationally. Through your brain, if you think something, it will have its limitations. As rationality has its limitations, your heart has to open out. And what resides in that heart, in the lotus of that heart, is your Spirit, is your Atma. And the light of that Atma, the Spirit, enlightens you, enlightens your beauty and gives you collective consciousness – it gives you. It is an actualization. It is a happening that gives you actual personality which can perceive, can feel the collectivity that resides within us. (3 November 1980)
