Worldly Identity


When I turn my attention to the world, 
often times, it overwhelms me...
Then I know I have strayed beyond my path...

Come back to the heart where He resides,
and in silence, I will hear...
His gentle footsteps and loving guidance...

I and You are One

Be simple and sincere.  It is sheer waste of money to burden the pictures and idols in the shrines and altars of your homes with the weight of garlands and to parade costly utensils and vessels and offerings to show off your devotion.  This is deception; it demeans Divinity, imputing to it the desire for pomp and publicity.  I ask only for purity of heart to shower grace.  Do not posit distance between you and Me; do not interpose the formalities of Guru-sishya relationship or even the altitudinal distinctions of the God-devotee relationship between you and Me.  I am you; you are I; that is the truth.  There is no distinction.  That which appears is the delusion.  You are the waves; I am the ocean.  Know this and be free, be divine.

A Visitor

In the last century, a tourist from the States visited the famous Polish rabbi Hafez Hayyim.
He was astonished to see that the rabbi's home was only a simple room filled with books. The only furniture was a table and a bench. 

"Rabbi, where is your furniture?" asked the tourist. 

"Where is yours?" replied Hafez. 

"Mine? But I'm only a visitor here." 

"So am I," said the rabbi.

Sacred Space

The silence is a kind of stillness, a place of retreat into which we may enter and having entered, may know the Truth.
- Myrtle Fillmore

There is no better time than now, no better place than right where I am to immerse myself in God's presence in me and the holy presence all around me.

God is everywhere, so the very ground on which I stand is holy ground, a sacred space where God and I are one.  In this sacred space, I am free from any limitation, free from anything that would hold me back or keep me from expressing God's love.

As I become more in tune with God's presence everywhere, I also become more aware of God's presence within others.  The presence of God is a beacon of love that draws me to others and allows us to live together in peace.

In this sacred space, we are one with God and one with each other.

God is with me in this sacred space.

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

Do Not Lose This Rare Pearl

You have won this human body, this human life, as the reward of many lives spent in acquiring merit.  You have won this chance, this unique good fortune of being able to get darshan of Sai.  Plunging deep into the waters of this tumultuous ocean of Samsara, you have heroically emerged from its depths, with this rare pearl in your hands - the Grace of Sai.  Do not allow it to slip from your clasp and fall into the depths again.  Hold on firmly to it.  Pray that you may have it forever and be filled with the joy that it confers.  That is the way in which you can render this life fruitful.

My Army

Be Positive

To forget the mistakes of the past
and to press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times
and give a smile to every living creature that you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world
not in loud word but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side,
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Practice Forbearance

Even if you cannot love others, do not hate them, or feel envy towards them.  Do not misunderstand their motives and scandalise them; if only you know, their motives may be as noble as yours, or their action might be due to ignorance, rather than wickedness or mischief.  Pardon the other man's faults, but deal harshly with yours.

Sweet Temper


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.
