The Founder does not give great importance to miracles but there is surely a stage when the miracles do the eye-opening work for many people who are really of an atheistic mentality, but who courteously and not honestly assent to the beliefs about the existence of the other world, or life after death, or invisible spirits, deities and God. Their assent is only mostly out of fear of being thrown out from society of God-believers and for so many other reasons.
Saints do not count upon miracles to enlarge their influence, but these are casual happenings managed by the Deities themselves to enhance the value of their devotees so that, they be heard with love, faith and sanctity, respect and obedience.
The Founder (Saint Mai Swarup Mai Markand) very humorously says, “How do miracles help you and me, if you do not make a point of being of the deserving plane in the matter of your devotion, love, service and surrender? I would show you actual Mai Herself, but you are the same person that you were before the Vision. You would be telling Mother, “We, I and my wife, are going to cinema. Please rock the cradle of this child and keep meals ready, when we return.” ” Where is the joyfulness, the ecstasy, the madness, the feeling of having been blessed? Where is even the readiness to lose only an atom of your selfishness and worldliness?
You would be simply exploiting Mother, and that too most discontentedly and ungratefully. ” Mother do this and Mother do that“, yourself doing nothing for Mother except babbling some few words of praise, a little trouble of twisting your tongue to cheat the world, yourself and the Guru hypocritically. Mother is afraid of you all. The height of ungratefulness is that you do not even talk about your gratitude or even of the experience to your husband, wife, children, friends or neighbors; not even to a sparrow, nor permit even walls to hear you. You bury the experience and gratitude, both, then and there.
She prefers being neglected and ignored rather than be exploited and expedited and expelled after your need is served.”
