Question: Could you mention how to lose body consciousness?

Q: Could you mention how to lose body consciousness?
SHRI MATAJI: Now all these words have absolutely has no meaning. Body consciousness this thing, that thing. You see it is said that you should not be conscious of your body. You should be conscious of your body as a human being, there’s nothing wrong. But once you get your realization, you become conscious of your subtle body, which is within you, so you can easily get it. But you don’t lose the consciousness of your body, that’s not so.

These are all funny things they are doing. I was telling you that you fly in the air and all that, it’s not. It’s absolutely simple that you become consciously aware within yourself of your own powers. And which you use, not for cruelties or for making money, but for love. I mean it is something it is something that happens to you, like I would say a flower. See it’s just a bud, maybe it’s not even a bud, but then it becomes a flower. And you see your fragrance and you are amazed at yourself.

So all these things that you have to give up your body consciousness, this consciousness, is not necessary at all. You don’t have to give up anything. Wherever you are, whatever you are, in that only you get the light, the enlightenment as they call it.

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.
