Self-realisation with Shri Mataji

It’s beautiful. I mean these are the real seekers of what William Blake has described. So very happy. All right. So now we’ll have to have our Self-realization. First of all I have to tell you that all of you should have full confidence that you can get your Self-realization. Whatever may be your race, whatever may be your religion, whatever may, you might have done, whatever may be your age, anything, you all can get Self-realization. That is first confidence with it, it is very important. Not to doubt yourself. In no way please doubt yourself. You are all ready just to get your realization. But still there are, I must say, three conditions which are very simple if you understand.

The first one is that you are not to feel guilty at all. It’s a fashion to feel guilty sometimes, sometimes we feel guilty. This guilt business is of no use, I tell you. After all you are human beings, and human beings can only commit mistakes, you are not God. So what is there to feel guilty? Are you feeling guilty because you are a human being? But it’s very difficult for people not to feel guilty. It’s something so much built in; especially in the West I’ve seen people feel too much guilty. Not in India. I don’t think Indians know that style. There’s nothing to feel guilty, and those who tell you that you are a sinner, just think there is something wrong with them. Nobody has business to say that. At present you understand that none of you are guilty in the eyes of God. Take it from me. Believe me. So forget it and don’t feel guilty about anything whatsoever you have done. Let the kundalini decide. You don’t do it. But do you know that if you feel guilty then this center goes out of order? A very remarkable center this one is, on the left side. When it goes out of order what happens? You might get angina, you might get spondylitis, or your organs may become lethargic. Physically it has an effect. We always say in English language “pain in the neck”; see somebody must be knowing about it to say “pain in the neck”. You see this pain in the neck is nothing but feeling guilty. It’s all mental. Try to understand it’s all mental. So this is the first condition you have.

The second one is that you have to forgive everyone without even thinking about them, in general. This is another very difficult situation. But just see logically. Whether you forgive or don’t forgive what do you do, logically? Nothing. What do we do? We are just torturing ourselves. When we don’t forgive others we are just torturing ourselves. But the people who have troubled us are very happy, while we are playing into their hands and torturing ourselves. You’ll feel much lighter if you just in your heart you say, “I forgive everyone.” In general. Don’t think of them. Thinking itself is a headache.

Now the third one is also very simple as I’ve said. You should be very confident because you are a human being and on the whole you should be very pleasantly placed towards yourself. You shouldn’t condemn yourself. In no way you should try to say that how is it possible and everything will work out because it’s all built in. Now supposing you come in this hall and you have to put on the lights, you have to just switch on because it’s built in. But supposing outside only you start saying, it may not work, it will work, whatever. You just see if it works or not. Why not give it a full chance? So don’t doubt yourself. It is going to work out. This is very important, I must tell you, because we have learnt to doubt ourselves, doubt others. There’s nothing to doubt. You all have got this power within yourselves, and it will work, I am sure it will work. Continue Reading »
