A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Mother: "One has to keep God constantly in the mind and pray, 'Lord, grant me the purest ideas'. How many can make japa and meditate for ever? At first one does something. And then like Nalini one becomes puffed up. Next one loses peace thinking of all the worthless things like stones and trees.
"It is much better to work, than to make the mind lazy and let it loose. The mind creates trouble whenever it is loose. It is after noticing all these that my Naren introduced works without motives."
Alluding to Nalini-didi again, Mother said, "Just see how impure her mind has become through idleness. Of all things, her fear of impurity through touch is ever on the increase. Why has she so much unhappiness? Why has she not been able to see light even after so many knocks?"
