Every Day with Shri Mataji

THERE IS NOT AN ELEPHANT


Once you start looking at your Spirit, your brain starts working. And the brain starts, like a machine it spins, goes on spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning ideas. And this spinning goes around and around you and you become like a spindle completely covered with the strings. So you have no way to grow. You just do not grow at all. Inside there is no growth. It is only outside growth. When people walk along, you find lots of plastic hanging around this side, a lot of tins jingling that side and lots of steel hanging that side. They are walking very proudly, but inside there is not an elephant. There might be just an ant carrying all these things. (8 1983)
