On Childcare - The Beauty of sharing

On Childcare - The Beauty of sharing



And when they give something to others, you must always praise. Teach them to give. That's one thing in Indian character, you see. Supposing our children give away anything to anyone, anything, you praise that child. Even say a diamond is given to another person, to any other child, you praise the child. But the mother will return the diamond, is different. But we'll praise the child: "All right, very good thing you have done, given." Giving is a very big quality. That's not in the West. I mean you are rich people, but this style of live is very different to ours. We are poor people, but we are better than you in this way. I mean, we are: rich in heart I think, isn't it? That's the thing is. Sharing, giving. See toys, now for example. The children who just give away all the toys are better children in India, and those who don't give away their toys, keep to their own toys, are not good children.

"Stand on your axis"

"Stand on your axis", your central channel. Destruction (illness, etc.) comes from too much left or right. It is important to keep the head held properly, not down or thrown back. Domination/submission needs to be eliminated among all the world’s people. (Left == Moon/Desire, Right == Sun/Action)



The axis senses what is to be done. Thinking too much is desire without action. Desire without action can be destructive. "A balance needs to be struck." We must desire and act.



Shri Mataji knows how deep you are by your axis. You cannot fool Her by talking big about Sahaja Yoga without the depth."

True Love

Love "Now what is there to be afraid of ? A man who is weak cannot
love. Only a strong person can love. If you talk of love, first of all
see whether you are strong enough to love or not. Loving is not an
easy thing, even carnal love, even loving your beloved in the ordinary
sense is not an easy thing. You have to have a very strong moral
concept. Otherwise every third minute people start changing their
loves. That kind of a love has no meaning.You have to have very firm
ideas. Not only ideas in your brain but built within you. Very few
people can have a love as Romeo had, I can tell you this. It's easy to
think that you are a Romeo. It's different. You can think you are the
King of England, it's alright, but you don't become that way. So to be
Romeo itself you have to have a tremendous character, a tremendous
sense of sacrifice and love and understanding of what you want.You
want to love thats all, nothing beyond or before. I mean a man, when
he falls in love, he falls in love for ever and ever and ever. If he
falls in love many times it can not be love. So that experience also
is a sort of a forbidden fruit for most of you.
So to love God is even more difficult without seeing Him, without
knowing Him, with-out knowing His bounties. Without getting
realisation it is very difficult."
