It’s better to develop your root system, enrich it so that you sustain your society much better and achieve the fruits of your creation.- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (19.03.1982)


……I know one thing that, in the West, the rationality has gone too far. People rationalise everything, which has killed all the joy of life. Everything they rationalise, which kills the joy of life. In the East people just do not rationalise, they do not think about it. That is also going too far. But there is a meeting point between the East and the West. And the greatest [thing] of all is that the West has discovered the science. Science is responsible, today, for Sahaja Yoga. Only through science we are going to spread Sahaja Yoga* – if people understand what is the meaning of Sahaja Yoga is. It’s a very dynamic thing no doubt. It’s working out tremendous things. But not in the places where people are very rationally judging everything.

Like a tree has got a shoot and a root. If it has got a shoot it has to have a root, otherwise shoot cannot hang in the air! It has to have a root. Now, in the West, we are the shoots. You see, everybody can see everything. You can see what we have achieved, “This is the achievement.” We have got big, huge affluent societies. People are working out all kinds of gadgets and this and that. But from where is the energy coming? Somebody must have worked the down way also, in the root, which you cannot see.

To understand the root you have to change your style. It’s alright, to become the shoot was different, but supposing you have to understand the root, you have to go down and you have to change your attitude. And that attitude is of trying to understand that we are not yet our Spirit.  All the prophets, all the great incarnations have said that, “You are to be born again,” that you have to become the Spirit. We are not. Let us very humbly accept that. If you accept that, that we are not yet realised souls – that’s all, we have to know – then it’s easier. But if we think, now people come to Sahaja Yoga’s system, I have seen, in the West, it’s very difficult to convince them. ……

……. But you must know that I am now talking about the roots and not about the shoot. Shoot you have got, you have got it, but you have to find the sustenance of it. If you do not find it, the whole thing will topple down.   As it is very important to have the shoot, it’s even more important sometimes to have a root, after some time, because if you are exhausted in your energy it’s better to develop your root system, enrich it so that you sustain your society much better and achieve the fruits of your creation……
