Now there are some people who never smile, who never laugh. So then you are allowed to tickle them. It's absurd. It's said that 'you have to be like children'; you have to be like children. You play with something, finished; then you play with another, finished. You don't get involved into anything. You don't get attached to anything. Unless and until you have that child-like heart you cannot enjoy Sahaja Yoga. It's useless. You will be here for years together; you will be useless, absolutely. Specially if you are coming from false gurus, it's very difficult. Because what I have known of false gurus, they never laugh, never smile. They are very serious. Only take your money, keep on the backside. So it is important that we should be in a very joyous mood, alert, aware, enjoying every bit of it. That's one of the Lakshmi's principles is."
