Question: Shri Mataji, with all the traveling do you miss your family?

Q: With all the traveling do you miss your family?
Shri Mataji: No. [Shri Mataji laughs] My family is very sensible. And I travel, they also travel with me. My family, all of them, are here now in America. But my family is very sensible and they realize, they have realized that this is such a great work I’m doing. So they support me, they help me in every way. They are very supportive. And they like it and they enjoy it, enjoy all the people who have got realization. There’s a family, has the same ideas, or we can say the same feeling, for the world and they are very happy about it.

Question: … spread the word of God using our thoughts and our actions.

Question: Someone once said to spread the word of God using our thoughts and our actions. I just want to know what is thought about that statement.
Shri Mataji: First you should get connected to God. If you are not connected to God, whatever you are doing in the name of God may not be. First point is we should be connected. Supposing this instrument [pointing to microphone] is here, and if it is not connected it has no meaning. In the same way our God’s work has no meaning because we are not yet connected. First get connected to His power.

Question: Have any of your grandchildren or children had the same insight or born with the same insight as you?

Q: Have any of your grandchildren or children had the same insight or born with the same insight as you?
SHRI MATAJI: Yes, you see, I have also great-grandchildren. And I’m surprised that they are all born realized. They are born realized, that’s very surprising. And the family is so united, so helpful. And my great-grandchildren also have the vibrations, they understand. I mean its remarkable how the Divine has been kind to me, to give such a family. I have never neglected my family, never, but they understand that my work is very important and they also enjoy my work very much. They also feel the vibrations, they also have got realization.

Q: .. what is the connection, if any, of Sahaja Yoga and Reiki…?

Q: Excuse me, what is the connection, if any, of Sahaja Yoga and Reiki or are they parallel with one another?
Shri Mataji: I don’t want to criticize anything, only thing you should see, all these things, what have you gained? First question, what have you gained by doing anything? Have you got Self-Realization? Have you got the knowledge of the Divine? Have you felt the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost? Just like that. As a Mother, I would say what did you get out of it? There are so many in the market, so many. I would ask you this question. Child, what did you get? There’s no end to such things.

Question: Individually, is the purpose of the soul to be separate or collective?

Question: Individually, is the purpose of the soul to be separate or collective?
Shri Mataji: Collective is the purpose of your soul. You have to become collective, but it’s not the collective, artificial one, but like your hands are collective with the whole body. If there’s a pain here the whole body will feel it. But who is the other? You can feel everyone within yourself. And that is what happens to you. So the purpose is that you become the whole, and completely engulf into the whole. All right?
