Sai Jewel - 51

VEDA 170

Worry and grief, there will always be, of one type or other, in the past, present and future; while waking, dreaming and sleeping. But, place faith in the Lord and do your tasks as dedicated to him and they both will vanish. More than food for stomach, man needs food for the spirit.

GEM 171

Bliss can only be got from God who is the embodiment of Bliss.

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

Giving Tree

I was a single parent of four small children, working at a minimum-wage job. Money was always tight, but we had a roof over our heads, food on the table, clothes on our backs and, if not a lot, always enough. My kids told me that in those days they didn't know we were poor. They just thought Mom was cheap. I've always been glad about that. 

It was Christmas time, and although there wasn't money for a lot of gifts, we planned to celebrate with church and family, parties and friends, drives downtown to see the Christmas lights, special dinners, and by decorating our home. 

But the big excitement for the kids was the fun of Christmas shopping at the mall. They talked and planned for weeks ahead of time, asking each other and their grandparents what they wanted for Christmas. I dreaded it. I had saved $120 for presents to be shared by all five of us. 
The big day arrived and we started out early. I gave each of the four kids a twenty dollar bill and reminded them to look for gifts about four dollars each. Then everyone scattered. We had two hours to shop; then we would meet back at the "Santa's workshop" display. 

Back in the car driving home, everyone was in high Christmas spirits, laughing and teasing each other with hints and clues about what they had bought. My younger daughter, Ginger, who was about eight years old, was unusually quiet. I noted she had only one small, flat bag with her after her shopping spree. I could see enough through the plastic bag to tell that she had bought candy bars - fifty-cent candy bars! I was so angry. What did you do with that twenty dollar bill I gave you? I wanted to yell at her, but I didn't say anything until we got home. I called her into my bedroom and closed the door, ready to be angry again when I asked her what she had done with the money. This is what she told me: 

"I was looking around, thinking of what to buy, and I stopped to read the little cards on one of the Salvation Army's 'Giving Trees.' One of the cards was for a little girl four years old, and all she wanted for Christmas was a doll with clothes and a hairbrush. So I took the card off the tree and bought the doll and the hairbrush for her and took it to the Salvation Army booth. 

"I only had enough money left to buy candy bars for us," Ginger continued. "But we have so much and she doesn't have anything." 

I never felt so rich as I did that day.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 8

I am not asking
For you to change.
On the contrary
I am asking you
To be your Self.
The only thing
You really
Need to change
Is the way
You see your Self.
And if you are
Able to see
As your "Self"
Then there is
Really nothing
To change.

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


“Children, you are safe and secure in God’s loving presence.”

I may feel anxious about my children when they are away from me, because I cannot see them or touch them to reassure myself that they are okay. But I can be assured that even when I cannot see them or be with them, God is.

We are all God’s children, and from the tiniest infant to the most mature adult, we are enfolded in God’s loving presence. Wherever we go and whatever we do, God’s loving presence is with us.

So I teach my children to have good judgment, but I also show them by example what it is to lead a prayerful, faith-filled life. I know this is true for me and my loved ones : God goes with us wherever we go, and in God’s presence, we are secure.

“You will have confidence, because there is hope;
you will be protected and take your rest in safety.”
- Job 11:18

愛LOVE愛 Speaks - 47

VEDA 169

Your duty is to keep calm, to pray for the happiness prosperity of all. Do not pray for your own exclusive happiness and say, “Let the rest of the world go to pieces.” You cannot be happy when the rest of the mankind is unhappy. You are an organic part of the human community. Share your prosperity with others; strive to alleviate the sufferings of others. That is your duty.

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

Small Serving


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.
