“The truth is that you are not this body, mind, these emotions, intellect, ego, superego, but you are the pure Spirit.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Speech from Shri Mataji

Why do we have ego and superego? 


That’s a very good question. He asks why universal consciousness, it is all deliberate, why it is kept sleeping in the human being?

Now in the growth of evolution, from a small amoeba, you come to a human stage. At the human stage, articulation takes place. Means like the shell of the egg is developed. For the egg to develop, the shell is developed. You are made limited. Through the growth of your ego and superego within yourself, your Brahmarandhra is closed down, your “talu” is closed down, and you are left to yourself.

I will tell you an analogy by which you will understand. For e.g., if I have to use this microphone, first of all it is developed somewhere, away from the mains, then again it is brought and put to the mains. In the same way human being is cut from the mains. He is given “I-ness” from him to develop his instrument, his awareness; in such a manner that when he receives the mains, he can communicate, he could understand, and for that development, articulation was done.

Just like an egg is made in a shell for protection and for its growth and then when the chick is ready in that shell, it is broken by the mother; here just like I break the Brahmarandhra, is the same, it’s that.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1976, New Delhi

“So we have only one choice left: is to be in the centre, to watch your ego and superego. For all the Sahaj yogis who are realised have to watch themselves, not others. You should not expect anything of others, just expect something of yourself for a change. With ego you do that: expect something of the others. In superego you do for others. But in Self-realisation you emit your Self as joy, love and beauty.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
