…..But we are different. We are the jewels of humanity, and we have to be like that, shining; cutting out all the wrong things within us as a diamond is cut to look something very, very great.My only desire, if I have any desire, is that ‘Try to follow the qualities of Shri Mahadeva’. How great he is, how detached he is, absolutely detached. He lives with bones and things like that. He is not bothered about where he is, what he lives with, what he has, nothing. So detached, and we should be detached like that.
At the same time, we should be very loving like him, extremely loving. How his heart is full of love for others, how he looks after others. I am warning you, because I know you all love me very much, but you should also love each other, you should have a loving heart, and have satisfaction in loving others. If you could develop that, your height will grow, your depth in Sahaja Yoga* will grow. It’s alright, the Goddess gives you the shraddha, alright, but the depth of shraddha, in Sanskrit, or in Hindi and Marathi I don’t know, but in Marathi they call it dyas (shraddha). Just deep in to that love, drenched in to that love, enjoying that love – then you don’t want anything. What do you want? You’ve got everything. So what do you want now? Just like the greatness of Shri Mahadeva. He’s so great that he’s detached. What does he want? I mean nothing is greater than him, nothing is more important than him. Then what does he want? He doesn’t want anything. That’s why he’s detached. This detachment you have to develop….
