Material Life

A new post in the series - Satyam Shivam Sundaram
A series featuring inspiring words from various sources, words that speak of  timeless truths, words that remind me of the deeper and hidden truth behind surface events and phenomena, words that shine light when all seems dark, words that are just what I need - 
for this moment and for all times to come.

Last few days have seen me occupied taking care of many details about lots of material things. The following words, for me, are a good reminder for keeping the right attitude and deepening the inner view when working on such important matters of life...

The Divine is in things also and that is why they must be treated with care.

Not to take care of material things which one uses is a sign of inconscience and ignorance.
You have no right to use any material object whatsoever if you do not take care of it.
You must take care of it not because you are attached to it, but because it manifests something of the 
Divine Consciousness.

~ The Mother, Collected Works, Volume 14
