God's Skillful Mastery

When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they'll remember and be kind to someone else.
And it'll become like a wildfire.
- Whoopi Goldberg

Each key on a piano plays a single note.  But in the skillful hands of a pianist, these individual keys work in harmony with each other to create beautiful music.

Similarly, I am an individual with my own notes to sound.  With God as the master musician, I blend with others in beautiful harmony.  Infused with love and understanding, compassion and forgiveness, I work with others to create beautiful chords of harmony.

In tune with God's love, I am fulfilling my destiny of spiritual oneness.  And I am helping create a peaceful, love-filled world for all those who will follow in my footsteps.

I am in harmony with God's peace and love.

(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry)  

Human Heart

At the time of birth, human heart is pure, selfless and steady. But with the passage of time, man loses his purity on account of his association with various individuals.

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

Culture must be evident in every aspect of life while studying, eating, sleeping, playing games, etc. ; culture expresses itself as discipline.

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


One night a group of nomads were preparing to retire for the evening, when suddenly they were surrounded by a great light.

They knew they were in the presence of a celestial being. 

With great anticipation, they awaited a heavenly message of great importance that they knew must be especially for them. 

Finally, the voice spoke. "Gather as many pebbles as you can. Put them in your saddle bags. Travel a day's journey. Tomorrow night you will be both glad and sad."
Afterwards, the nomads shared their disappointment and anger with each other.
They had expected the revelation of a great universal truth that would enable them to create wealth, health and purpose for the world. But instead they were given a menial task that made no sense to them at all. However, the memory of the brilliance of their visitor caused each one to pick up a few pebbles and deposit them in their saddle bags while voicing their displeasure. 

They traveled a day's journey. That night, while making camp, they reached into their saddle bags and discovered that the pebbles they had gathered the night before had turned into beautiful and brilliant diamonds!
Indeed, they were both glad and sad, just as the voice had promised. They were glad they now had beautiful and valuable diamonds. They were sad they had not gathered more pebbles when they had the opportunity. 

The moral
If you spend time picking up the pebbles now -- learning all you can and working hard to apply it -- your future will then transform all that effort into great rewards.

Visualize Healing

Your body cannot heal without play.  Your mind cannot heal without laughter.
Your soul cannot heal without joy.
- Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

God has given me a body that is spontaneously able to heal itself.  So I cooperate with my body's own natural healing ability by praying for an keeping positive thoughts about it.  Healing accelerates in the sacred environment of prayer.
And if I am going through some kind of treatment - from vitamins to medication - I allow whatever I take into my body to do its best work when I cooperate with it and do not resist it.

So I visualize the treatment as something that is helping me - a strengthening, healing energy that is moving throughout my body and restoring me.  I see - ahead of the actual results - the wholeness that I am becoming more and more each day.

I use spiritual vision to cooperate with the healing that is taking place now.

(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry) 

GEM 468

Culture means giving up one's bad conduct, bad behaviour, bad deeds and cultivating good thinking.

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


I asked God to take away my pain.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said . . . Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

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.
