Mother Meera on Experience

[Q: What attitude should I have to my spiritual “experiences”?]

Be grateful. Offer them to “Him,” but never think yourself special or chosen. That leads to pride, and a proud man is far from God: Whatever experience you have had, however extraordinary, remember that there are further and greater experiences. The Divine Life is endless; the being of God is infinite. Remember the aim of our yoga is not “experience,” ... but the transformation of the whole life, a continual experience of Him, an unbroken ecstasy [ego-transcendence]. And be careful always; there are so many ways in which the vital and mental can imitate and pervert the spiritual. In ordinary consciousness, in which most people are, it is hard to tell where an “experience” comes from. The best attitude is wariness and humility. Rest nowhere and become attached to nothing—even your own deepest knowledge.
