Every Day with Shri Mataji


The problem with human beings is that they do not recognize. They do not know.... They cannot fathom where they are, where are they drifting. As long as there is nothing that is troubling them, they go on moving onto dreamland. Of course, in the modern times, despite all this, there is a big seeking going on. People are born with seeking. Children are born with seeking. From childhood, they find that there is something wrong. They find sometimes, even in their family, as if their parents, their relations are extremely narrow-minded. These people who are born like that are of a different calibre, of a different temperament, of a very different quality. But they also gradually lose their quality when they get into the mundane life. (9 1980)
