A devotee once asked the Mother, ” Mother what should be our mode of life ? “
Mother : You spend your life in the same way as you are doing now. Pray to Him earnestly. Think of Him always.
Spiritual fall,egotism and Divine will
Devotee: Mother, I am overtaken by fear on seeing how even high spiritual persons meet with fall.
Mother: If you are constantly in touch with objects of enjoyment, you are likely to succumb to their influence.
Devotee: Man cannot do anything by his individual effort. God is doing everything through him.
Mother : Yes, that is true. But is one conscious of this always ? Blinded by egotism, people think themselves to be independent agents in regard to action. They do not depend on God. He protects one who relies on Him.
