Why Be Angry


Goodness


You must realize that greatness related to power, position of wealth is transient.  It is lost when power and position go.  But goodness is respected always.  Therefore, dedicate your lives to goodness.  What is goodness?  It is living according to Dharma (the code of right conduct) and justice, to love all and cherish faith in God.  To help the needy and raise the lowly - all these constitute goodness.


(Sanathana Sarathi, August 1997, pg 209)

Man's Life Span


On the first day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give you back the other ten." 
So God agreed. 

On the second day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks and make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?"
And God agreed. 

On the third day God created the cow. "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves, and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty." 
And God agreed again. 

On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years."
Man said, "What? Only twenty years? Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back, and the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?" 

Okay," said God, "You've got a deal." 

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. 

Life has now been explained to you......

Leave Behind


Rise into the sky
upon wings of light,
this is how the birds
launch themselves into forever.

Leap into the ocean
in joyous abandon,
this is how the fishes
disappear into eternity.

Vanish into love’s hand
and leave your self behind,
this is how lovers
find the One they love.

 - Abdur Rahman -

Gratitude


Intelligence without gratitude is valueless.  Every man should be grateful to those who have helped him.


(Sanathana Sarathi, September 1997, pg 238)

God's Loving Touch


It is not of so much consequence what you say, as how you say it.
- Alexandra Smith


Closer than the air I breathe, God is with me.  And whenever I seek reassurance or comfort, I know that God is there to listen.
"Hello God, it's me, and I need You.  My heart is yearning for You, for only You can give me the peace I desire.  I know You will help me, God, by filling me with Your love.  Through Your loving touch, I experience the peace that will help me carry on.

"Today, I need strength for myself and also added strength to help others.  When my own human efforts are not enough, Your love and peace will lift me above my own limitations to a place where I cannot fail.

"I believe in You, God, and I need Your help right now, so that I can also believe in myself and in the endless possibilities for me.  Right here - enfolded in Your love, sustained by Your strength, and soothed by Your peace - I do believe."


The peace of God soothes me.

Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 71


 Are you selling your character
For you to receive
A few cheap worldly gains?
Are you bending your principles
In order to maintain
Useless and frivolous relationships?
Are you saying no to your
Conscience
So you can please those
That have little contact
With their conscience?
Realize that if you have to give up
All friends and comforts
In order to find the gate to heaven
It is, my child, worth it!



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

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.
