... Wealth – when we talk about wealth, what do we think about? The bank, eh? It’s true, when we talk about Maha Lakshmi, we think about the bank and money, but is money everything? No, it’s not. We need it of course, without money we can’t do anything, but She also symbolises spiritual wealth. This wealth is what Christ talks about, saying “The wise ones put their money not in the bank in the world, because somebody can come and take it away, but in the bank, which is up or deep within.” She symbolises this spiritual wealth – that the more we surrender towards our path of knowing ourselves, the more we will be free. We’ll be full of spiritual knowledge. We’ll be full of the Grace of the Divine. Otherwise, we are never free. One day we want this, tomorrow we want that; then another day we want another thing. It’s endless. Can we ever be free from that? No, we never can. Maha Lakshmi helps to fulfill all your wishes, so that you can be ready to fulfill the wish of your soul also. We ask Maha Lakshmi to bestow Her Grace not only on all of us, but on everybody who needs Her help in whatever way. To bestow the wealth of health on people who are sick, to shine forth Her Light, so that our intellect becomes pure, and to help everybody who needs help.
We are not special, you know. When we think of ourselves being closer to the Divine than anyone else – this is wrong.
