Return


Eternal Sai - 213



Love should be free from feelings of expectation of any return or reward. Love which arises out of a desire for something in return is not true love. Utterly selfless and motiveless love should be developed. This is the bounden duty of man.

(SSS Vol XXII - Chap 34)

GEM 212



If you cannot get rid of thoughts, then cultivate good thoughts.  Turn your thoughts towards the Supreme Lord.


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

VEDA 210






One’s duty is to act, act well, act good; act within the bounds of morality; act in love, continue acting; the consequences will naturally follow as the fruit follows the flower. One need not worry or exult. Act enthusiastically, with faith – success is yours. Activity must result from the awareness of detachment. That is the secret of a happy life.



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

Sai Gem - 25


Lesson Learned



There was a boy who found a terrapin, more commonly known as a turtle.

He started to examine it but the turtle pulled in its head and closed its shell like a vice. The boy was upset and he picked up a stick to try to pry it open.

The boy's uncle saw all this and remarked, "No, that's not the way! In fact, you may kill the turtle but you'll not get it to open up with a stick."

The uncle took the terrapin into the house and set it near the fireplace. It wasn't but a few minutes until it began to get warm. Then the turtle pushed out its head, then stretched out its legs and began to crawl.

"Turtles are like that," said the uncle, "and people, too. You can't force them into anything. But if you first warm them up with some real kindness, more than likely, they will do what you want them to do."

GEM 211



If you are patient and calm, I shall grant you Joy without fail.  Do not yield to despair.  Even the infant lotus buds will bloom in their own good time.


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

LIFE OF CARING


“The care I give others is from the love of God within me.”

If I were to view my life as an unfolding story, what would I consider my most important accomplishments?

Would they be the things I have worked really hard for, or would they be the times I have put aside some important work to do something even more important, such as spending time with a child or an adult who needs someone to listen and to care?

The way I treat people may be the most important and inspiring part of my life story. Because I care for others, I love with a love that unites me with them. Because I care, I take extra notice of friends and strangers alike and appreciate that they are living examples of God's creative power and glory. Yes, I care, and because I do, a whole world of wonder opens to me.

"Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them;
for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs."
- Matthew 19:14

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

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.
