VEDA 299

Life is a long journey and your desires are the luggage. “Less luggage more comfort make travel a pleasure.” The journey of life will become enjoyable only when you reduce the luggage of desires. The lesser the desires are, the happier you will be.

(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

GEM 301

Attachment can be used to fix your Heart on the Lord, be fascinated by overwhelming beauty of His form reflected in all the loveliness of Nature.

(From : Garland of 1008 Gems, Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba's Sayings)

Sai Darshan, Part 3 - 101

Laugh bravely at the eyes of suffering.
Feel not your pain, cry not your fears.
Use the name of the Lord, as your weapon to fight.
When His name is your strength,
You are untouched by pain.
When He becomes the power to your will,
All sufferings can be endured with His vigor -
Overcome and even forgotten.
When He shines the light of spiritual inspiration,
God slowly begins to take form,
And becomes more clear to you.
When His way becomes your path to travel,
Your journey awakens
From death to the life of the sweet Divine.
How sweet life is when He walks in!
And reveals a strength that lives within - Him!

From : 'Sai Darshan' - Part III
(Divine Messages received and recorded by Mrs Seema M Dewan)


God stirs up our comfortable nests, and pushes us over the edge of them,
and we are forced to use our wings...
Read your trials in this light, and see if your wings are being developed.
- Hannah Whitall Smith

God, You comfort me when I need love and understanding, and I want to be a messenger of peace and support to my friends and loved ones during their times of need.

God, Your love fills my heart and mind. I want the words of comfort I give to others to be Your message of love to the world. Just as You have done for me, I listen with patience to those whom I am comforting. Thank You for helping me share Your love with them.

One of the greatest comforts I can give to my loved ones is to listen and remind them that true peace of mind can only come from Your presence within. Through self-discovery, they, too, will recognize that You and You alone are the comfort that reaches down into their souls.

God gives me the comfort that reaches into my soul.

Angel Encounter

Life's a little thing! Robert Browning once wrote. But a little thing can mean a life. Even two lives. How well I remember. Two years ago in downtown Denver my friend, Scott, and I saw something tiny and insignificant change the world, but no one else even seemed to notice.
It was one of those beautiful Denver days. Crystal clear, no humidity, not a cloud in the sky. We decided to walk the ten blocks to an outdoor restaurant rather than take the shuttle bus that runs up and down the Sixteenth Street Mall. The restaurant, in the shape of a baseball diamond, was called The Blake Street Baseball Club. The tables were set appropriately on the grass infield. Many colorful pennants and flags hung limply overhead. As we sat outside, the sun continued to beat down on us, and it became increasingly hot. There wasn't a hint of a breeze, and heat radiated up from the tabletop. Nothing moved, except the waiters, of course. And they didn't move very fast, either.
After lunch Scott and I started to walk back up the mall. We both noticed a mother and her young daughter walking out of a card shop toward the street. She was holding her daughter by the hand while reading a greeting card. It was immediately apparent to us that she was so engrossed in the card that she did not notice a shuttle bus moving toward her at a good clip. She and her daughter were one step away from disaster when Scott started to yell.
He hadn't even gotten a word out when a breeze blew the card out of her hand and over her shoulder. She spun around and grabbed at the card, nearly knocking her daughter over. By the time she picked up the card from the ground and turned back around to cross the street, the shuttle bus had whizzed by her. She never even knew what almost happened. To this day two things continue to perplex me about this event. Where did that one spurt of wind come from to blow the card out of that young mother's hand? There had not been a whisper of wind at lunch or during our long walk back up the mall. Secondly, if Scott had been able to get his words out, the young mother might have looked up at us as they continued to walk into the bus. It was the wind that made her turn back to the card - in the one direction that saved her life and that of her daughter. The passing bus did not create the wind. On the contrary, the wind came from the opposite direction. I have no doubt it was a breath from God protecting them both. But the awesomeness of this miracle is that she never knew.
As we continued back to work, I wondered how God often acts in our lives without our being aware. The difference between life and death can very well be a little thing.
Miracles often blow unseen through our lives.

Easy Life

A clerk, coming out of his office, glanced at the Emperor palace with its shining domes and thought: “What a shame that I wasn’t born in the royal family. Life would have been so easy then”. The clerk went in the direction of the town centre, were the rhythmical banging of the hammers and loud shouts were heard.
The workers were building a new building right in the middle of the square. One of them saw the clerk with his papers and thought: “Why didn’t I go to study, like my father told me. Now I would be doing easy jobs, writing texts the whole day, and life would be so easy then.”
At that time the Emperor came to the giant window in his palace and glanced into the square. He saw the workers, clerks, salesmen, buyers, children and adults, and thought how it must be good to be in the fresh air all day, doing physical work, or working for someone, or just being a street vagrant, not thinking at all about politics and other difficult questions. “What a simple life these simple people must have” he whispered.

You Are Born

VEDA 298

First and foremost, man has to purify his speech. Only then will his life be safe and secure. If you slip and fall, the injury can be cured, but the injury caused by the slip of the tongue is incurable. It will make your life miserable. So, you should have control over your speech. Excessive talk will lead to untruth and unpleasantness. That is why the ancient Saints and Seers used to observe silence.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 52

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 52

Do not look for guidance
From outside sources
For you will be confused
Heartbroken and weak-minded.
Within the core
Of your own heart
Is always the answer
To your next step ahead -
Do not doubt that...
It shall always lead you
To truth -
It shall always give you the way
That is good for all -
It shall always draw you out
From selfish desires -
It shall make you do good... be good... see good -
It shall give you the gift
Of self-respect and self-confidence -
And while you do
What you must...
It will draw you
Into divine moments of complete bliss.

(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

GEM 300

Ascribe value to pure Heart and dedicated deeds, never indulge in talk that hurts others.

(From : Garland of 1008 Gems, Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba's Sayings)


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
