Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Nov 8, 1980
We have within us a being which I call ‘the Spirit’: the Spirit which is also the part and parcel of the totality that is love, totality that is God, totality that is joy, totality that is knowledge. And that Spirit within us is watching us. It is not watching like a guard or a police inspector.
That also we human beings cannot understand. If I say the Spirit is watching, people get a fright, “Oh God!”
The Spirit is the one that is love. Can you understand total love? Can you understand something that just gives and enjoys giving, and not asking for anything? Can you understand someone like that? Can you?
Loving for love’s sake; that’s what is your Spirit. It is watching you with that love, that total love. That totality of love is watching you to give you that what it is. Now here, I would say, you are the Spirit and you are this self, another one, which is this awareness, this human awareness which you have got. This human awareness has to be enlightened by that totality, that Spirit. When it enlightens that, then only, you know that you are a part and parcel of the totality and that you are beautiful; you are really beautiful. Sometimes one feels a little bashful to know how beautiful one is, and so fragrant, and so grand and so dignified.
That new dimension one has to achieve.
