That we feel very responsible about Sahaja Yoga, pleases Shri Adi Shakti… that we feel we have to spread Sahaja Yoga everywhere… responsibility without feeling ‘in charge’ – we say ‘not I, but the Divine that is doing it’, or… ‘I am not doing anything’… then the ego does not come up, and we become humble (1996-0505)

I think people must take it more seriously about the whole thing… and should understand it… and learn it – we are Gurus. The main thing is that we do not take any money you see… so people think, you see… ‘that we are not bound… that we are absolutely free to come and go’… but this freedom sometimes makes a person a little superficial… or sometimes a little frivolous… but, this is so precious… so invaluable… that you cannot charge… any money for this knowledge (1982-1008)

You have to take up the responsibility… those who do not, are not the people who are yet matured… every type of responsibility that you can take… think of what responsibilities you can take up (1983-0821); Responsibility is a quality of the Vishuddhi (1983-1001)… that’s why most of us have bad Vishuddhis, because we do not take responsibility… and we have to be much much more responsible than even ordinary government servants are (1983-0821); This Vishuddhi centre can also catch, if we feel ‘too responsible’, and can result in tensions and headaches – the remedy is to witness, and realise that everything is done by the Divine (1989-0801); We should also be responsible in the Ashram, switching off electricity, not wasting food, being alert to the vibrations of the children etc. (1985-0421); Krishna… whose qualities include Collectivity, and Responsibility (1996-0929)

But you do not understand your responsibility. What you are doing… you are playing into the hands of satanics… by not paying attention to your cleaning. By not paying attention to your spiritual growth, you are not helping me at all… because these vibrations do not flow out – they have to flow through you… you are the channels. If you do not keep yourselves clean and humble and meek about it, it doesn’t work out (1980-0927)

Start seeing what are the bad things that are being accepted in your own country, which are very dangerous and detrimental, even destructive, that have trickled down into your own personality. If we all see that point very clearly within ourselves (try to note it down, and watch yourself… where is it lurking), I think you will do the greatest service to your own country, because whatever goes out of you, goes out of that country (1986-0705)

You have to do the work of God, you have to fight the anti-God elements, the satanic elements… now, the forces are gathering in such a way that the sorting out will start. You are not responsible for your families any more. Your responsibility is to yourself, to be the Spirit… your responsibility is to Sahaja Yoga, is to understand Mother better, is to understand this mechanism within you, how it works out everything, to understand how to become the Guru yourself, how to be a dignified and a glorified personality, to be a respectable person, and not a cheap personality. Everyone of you is worth the whole Universe – if you want to rise to that height, to that magnitude, it is within you to prosper – but those people who still want to live on a very low level cannot (1982-1219)

So now we have to be wise, and see what is destroying us… what is destroying our inner being. For Sahaja Yogis it is very important… because if they can hold it… with their wisdom, and firm faith in Sahaja Yoga… after some time the whole thing can subside… and this is what has to happen actually to the world… otherwise they can be blown off also – if they are not rightly placed… if they are not grounded. If they are not fixed to their own enlightened faith of Sahaja Yoga, they can be blown off with this wind, which is there to torture… to destroy the whole world. So the responsibility of Sahaja Yogis is very important… that their Ganesha principle is alright… if it is not alright then the whole Sahaja Yoga movement can collapse (1993-0721); For ladies and for men, I have to make a humble request, that they should try to put their Shri Ganesha in a respectable position in their lifestyle… that it should be the highest… the most important (1993-0721)

What is the knack, then of being a good Sahaja Yogi… in one word, that you can understand… one small thing… is to be responsible… if you are a responsible Sahaja Yogi… you will find your own way… if you are not, you will go to doom… because if you are responsible… then only God is going to give you more (1977-0126.1); You have to give Realisation… you have to take responsibility of Sahaja Yoga now… you have to become responsible for it, in your own way. You have to do it, because you are doing it for the greater good – the more you think of the greater good it is doing… the better it will be for you (.0011)

When you are responsible, you will be amazed… you will drop out most of your habits… automatically. Once you take the responsibility of Sahaja Yoga on your shoulders… immediately all the dimensions of your new life will open out… knowledge will pour into you… a new style of understanding will develop… the subtleties of life will open out before you… the joy will pour onto you… you will feel as if the Ganges is flowing over your Sahastrara… but you have to be responsible. Responsible also means that others should be given a chance… and when you start leading a responsible Sahaja Yogi life… thousands of evolved Souls will hang around you… you’ll have a different light on your face… you will be amazed… when you speak, you will be amazed at how you are speaking… how things are happening… how things are working out. You are very few people on the stage… behind the stage there are thousands. The sense of responsibility can only come through your freedom… this is the problem of Sahaja Yoga. Is it that human beings are not that evolved to be responsible – that they must be dominated by somebody… or driven… otherwise they cannot do something responsibly? So in Sahaja Yoga… we have to be responsible (1977-0126.1)
