Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga meditation talk in which Shri Mataji describes how to become detached and to achieve the peace within. The talk was held at a public programme in Vienna, on the 19th July 1994.
So this detachment comes from within. It’s not to wear these dresses of renouncing or to shave your head, that’s not needed. It’s an inner happening. You don’t have to give up your families, you don’t have to give up your jobs, you have to be absolutely normal. But when you become thoughtlessly aware, the peace is established within. I have known many people who have got peace awards, this award, that award – they have no peace within, I don’t know how they got it. Actually most of them are very hot tempered. If you have to reach them you have to take a barge pole, somehow. You establish your peace within and then the whole world becomes like a drama. You get out of your problems and see them clearly. Like if you are standing in the water you are afraid of the waves, but if you get into the boat you can see the waves. But if you know how to swim you can jump in and save many others. This is how Sahaja Yoga works.
Your attention can go to any limit, you can find out about anyone dead or alive in any country. When we see television, we know about the ether. But I am talking about the subtle of the ether, which is so efficient, which is so fast, which is so active, and which is so loving. You find your life so blissful. People write to me about the miracles they have had. I asked somebody to compile them, and in one month he told me, “They have come up to my head like that, now what am I to do?” They said, “You better sort it out, Mother.” I said, “I have no time, all right, forget it.” Then you realize how glorified you are, what great thing you are.
