…..Matter can never give us joy, take it from Me. It is also an economic science that the material things can not give you satisfaction in general. They can give you a particular thing then you buy now you buy this, alright then you want to buy that, then you want to buy something else. But in general they are not satiable, that means “matter can not give joy”. … I do not say that you can not use the matter. You can use the matter for your purpose also when you know how to give it to others. That the joy of matter is in giving. Perhaps we have missed the point, but after Sahaja Yoga* you will know that the joy of matter is only felt when you see the beauty of matter and when you see what it is to give to others. To give to others. It’s not for yourself that you can’t ever enjoy but only by giving it to others, you enjoy the matter………….
It’s better to give it to somebody else and seen on other people than to have your own. If you own it, it’s a headache to you but if you give it to others it’s nice. You enjoy it alright, you enjoy this hall very well without owning it, if you have to own it, it would have been a headache for you to go up there and look after everything, isn’t ? It’s better not to own it, let others have the headache, and let’s have the enjoyment. That’s what is the policy in Sahaja Yoga which you may try to adopt…………
