Buddha's message is, of course, is not to develop ego. But how do you do that? First of all, whatever you are doing you have to say, "I am not doing it. It's Mother who is doing it" or "God who is doing it, I am not doing anything."
But if you feel that you are doing something for Sahaja Yoga, it's better you stop doing it. But you should say, "No, it came my way. I just ... I didn't do anything. I was just there. That's all." Then you have achieved a great deal. And the second thing is of desire, even desire of anything, of smallest thing or the biggest thing or even loving your children, loving you wife, this "my, mine" all those things; all these desires, if they are not fulfilled you feel frustrated, then you must know that there's something wrong with you. But, if you understand the sense of collectivity, then you can ascend very fast. ..."
