No hierarchy in Sahaja Yoga
"... You are there on your own position. You are there. You are in charge of yourself. So you don't worry. There's no jealousy. There's no fear. There's no kind of a temptation. You just ‹ you're there. You're not bothered. Sometimes I've seen the leaders are worried about their leadership sometime. Now leadership is just hocus-pocus, I must tell you. If somebody says, "Mother, you become the leader." I say, "No. [laughs] I know. I know that joke." So it's a joke. Leadership is a joke, you see, and if you know it's a joke, then only you'll work it out better. Because, you see it is this, there's nothing like hierarchy in Sahaja Yoga, as you know. We are all one, same. We cannot say that hands are better than feet and the feet is better than this. Nothing of the kind. In the same way, everything is very important and everything circulates like the blood cells. So we do not say that this blood cell is good and that blood cell is bad or this blood cell is higher, that blood cell is higher. In the same way, everybody is circulating. So one should not have any fear. Also fear of the leader should not be there. There's no need to fear the leader. If you are on your gravity, you keep to it. He will understand you. As long as leader is on the gravity, he'll be there. As soon as you go away, goes away from the gravity, he'll go away himself.
So you stand on your own gravity point and nobody can disturb you. You should have no fear, nothing, nothing to bother in Sahaj Yog. As it is, you are all saints. What is there to bother? The whole Ganas, all the angels, all this all-pervading power is looking after you. Yesterday we saw a kind of a light which we ‹ a miraculous light following us on both the sides of the car, especially on my side was there such a lot of light following. Just giving indication that it's all right, this is Ganesha's place and here things are going to work out. So you are placed so well, you have so many powers within yourself and which you can express very well. Fearlessly you can have it within yourself. Anybody who tries to trouble you will be looked after by this all-pervading power. You don't have to do anything about it."
