If you want, you will learn. When we think it is difficult, we create a barrier. So it is our own creation. There is nothing difficult or easy if we think it is that. If a woman is afraid of the dark, but suppose her child is sick, at midnight she walks to the doctor. Why? How? Because she has forgotten her fear. Isn't it? So when you forget your fear, there is nothing to be afraid of.Heart Speak 2004, vol. 2, p. 80 –Rev. Chariji

The main thing is not to want anything. We are always wanting something. We expect something from our friend, something from our beloved, something from society, and every time we expect, we will be disappointed - no happiness. So I gave an eleventh maxim: Don't expect and there won't be any disappointment.Heart Speak 2004, vol. 2, p. 78 –Rev. Chariji

Babuji always praised women. He said, "Woman only knows love, because she sends her children out to school, she sends her husband out to the office, and patiently waits until they come back, prayerfully perhaps, but patiently." Because prayer cannot supplant patience. Patience also shows faith that this will happen.Heart Speak 2004, vol. 2, p. 73-74 -Rev. Chariji
Impatience shows lack of faith. "No, no, I want it now." You will have it when you are to have it. When it is good for you to have it - even in spiritual values, even spiritual blessings. He knows, the Giver knows, when you are ready for it.Heart Speak 2004, vol. 2, p. 74 –Rev. Chariji
That is why Babuji said, "If you carry guilt with you, you are sinning much more than what made you guilty." Repentance means forgetting and determining not to do it again. No ritual can absolve you of your sins.Heart Speak 2004, vol. 2, p. 73 –Rev. Chariji
Secret things are not sacred; like the weaponry strength of powerful nations. These are secret things but they are hateful, devilish, demoniac things; they are not sacred. So secrecy hides devilry. Sacredness veils something which is divine, which is higher in value, which cannot be exposed to the profane gaze.
