“It is impossible for one to exist even for a moment without action.  The impulse of nature compels man to act.  Do your duty, for action is superior to inaction”.  (III, 5)

“Action is higher than inaction, therefore, perform thy allotted task.  Even the life of the body cannot be sustained without action.”  (III, 8)

It is not possible to exist without breathing.  Breathing is an action.  You cannot help but act.  The heart cannot help but beat, the eyes cannot help but see, the ears cannot help but listen; the mind cannot help but chatter.  Nature compels man to feed and protect the body.  It is an inborn function.  It can be limited but not eliminated, for action is the mantra that makes the body tick.  Man’s body is an energy field; the energy releases and recycles in physical action.  Inaction causes lethargy and disease.  Therefore, in his own interest man has to perform action.  Nor can he go against the current of his nature.  The sun has no choice in the matter of the emanation of its rays.  Likewise, man has no choice but to act.

Action is his inherent nature; hence he should perform it to the best of his abilities.  One can never be inactive even for a moment.  Some thought, good or bad, emanates from the mind each second.  These thoughts propel action.  The chain of thought set unto action only ends when our inward consciousness comes clearly into sight.

The difference between a realized soul and an ordinary person is that the former (akacri) one works without being consciously aware that he is working whilst the latter tires himself out thinking he is working and responsible.

  • Shri Mataji’s quotes

    [...] Au contraire, Sahaja Yoga consiste à unir les gens au nom de Dieu. De les rendre UN au nom de Dieu. Supposons qu’une personne vive, disons en Afrique du Sud ou bien disons dans un endroit reculé comme le Bénin par exemple et, qu’il devienne un Sahaja Yogi. Il y en a des milliers qui sont devenus des Sahaja Yogis là-bas. Ils sont tous vos frères et soeurs. Ils sont des vôtres. Si vous allez là-bas ils vous traiteront simplement comme leurs propres enfants, comme leur proches. Ils ne penseront jamais à savoir de quelle religion vous venez ou de quelle secte vous venez, rien du tout. J’ai été surprise de voir comment ils ont cet amour. En fait, aimer est une qualité innée des êtres humains, C’est une qualité innée. Chaque être humain a reçu ce trésor d’amour, cette capacité d’aimer. [...] — Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
