The Subtle Child

Think of mother who has to bear the child, has to give birth to a

child, has to look after the child, the needs of the child, protect

the child, to train the child.

…Now in the same way sahajayogi must know that the child within him

is born – the Spirit. Spirit is the child which has been born within

him, now he has to nourish it, through the Kundalini. He has to

water it, he has to look after it. It has to make it grow. Now where

is the time for other nonsensical things? You have a child in hand.

You are all mothers looking after the child – that's your Spirit. So

where do you have time for all these things? The attention should

be: "what can I do to make this child happy, to make this child grow

to make this child completely manifest my self. "The mother replaces

herself as soon as a child becomes a mature child. So now in you,

the motherhood must take over the fatherhood. Motherhood towards

yourself. The attitude should be like a mother towards the child,

how her attention is towards the child.
