Student: I have a question about qualities like egoism, selfishness, pride, jealousy in an individual person. What is the connection between those qualities in me, or anybody and Mahamaya?
Swami: That’s Mahamaya in you to destroying. She’s not separated - she’s in you. That’s what I told. Fifty percent of your soul is with you, the negativity, giving lot of strange… That’s why I told, kindness, who has the kind heart… On the first point I told it, kind heart. Who has the kindness, there’s no way to get the jealousy, pride, ego. Who has the love, there’s no chance the ego and jealousy will come. You know what I’m saying?
For example, you love your wife so much, or you love your daughter so much. Your daughter has fallen in love with somebody. You can’t be jealous. You can’t get angry because the love is huge born there making you stop from all this stuff. So, number one, developing the love is so important. Developing love will come through only when you start forgiving, “Take it easy, so what, who cares - fine.” Give the explanation and forgive, forgive, forgive then the love seeds will develop hugely in you. The forgiving also is a huge art, a siddhi - you can gain it.
