Anybody who comes to your house who is a Sahaja Yogi is owner of that house. That sort of a feeling should be developed. When the light you take out from one room to another room, it does not say ‘This is my room so I’ll give light, if I go to another room I will not give light.’ Now, light is absolutely detached. If you do not look after your light it will extinguish. You have to look after it till it takes its proper stand and once it takes a particular stand then you are a strong Sahaja Yogi. Then they see the light on your face and then you manifest light in their lives. This light, if you put finger on it, it will burn but the light of love never burns. It dissolves all that is bad, it rejects, it turns away from whatever that is wrong. It has patience and it expels the darkness. Darkness within and without.
…..But when you do not understand the real significance of Lakshmi then it brings darkness and Lakshmi disappears. For example, somebody gets lots of money. Immediately he will have first class bar in the house. Then he’ll have his friends to come and have drinks. He’ll drink with them and suddenly he’ll find that Lakshmi has disappeared. So wherever there is wine there is darkness and that darkness which comes to you with the Lakshmi makes Lakshmi just disappear. The whole of the universe, the whole cosmos, is so well-knit that if you try to do one thing wrong this side, everything goes off. It is so well connected, like one bulb fuses everything fuses off. In Sahaja Yoga also it happens like this, that a person who is enlightened and tries to be nasty, tries to create problem, can make others negative. …
But the main people, the people who are grown up and who are matured should keep their maturity and assert it. It’s in the form of light, again. Now if there are many lights like these are, and one of them goes out, doesn’t matter because its… there are so many others, like that. But if there is one light which is matured enough, even all of them go away, doesn’t matter. So the people who are half-Sahaja Yogis or quarter-Sahaja Yogis, ..have to understand that they play no important role in Sahaja Yoga*. Everybody has to become a full-fledged Sahaja Yogi. Then it matters a lot if any such Sahaja Yogi is sick or is in problem, all the angels would run to help him….
