It Is Me


VEDA 194






The mind clings to some thing or other; make it cling to God. The mind is like a mad monkey, while the body is like a water bubble which may burst at any moment. Therefore, you must follow only the conscience. You cannot realize your divinity as long as your mind is filled with evil thoughts.

Sai Gem - 22




GEM 195



God's love descends equally on all people.  A fragrant flower retain its fragrance whether you hold in the right hand or the left.


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

No Desire




Once there was a man who had desires larger than life. He tried everything to earn money and fulfill his desires but he didn’t succeed. One day, he attended a satsang and decided to follow the path of a saint. When he became saint, his longing for things weren’t there anymore. He was mentally satisfied and happy with practices of yoga and meditation..
Once he sat for a long time and dedicated a prayer to God. God was pleased by his dedication and came to him and asked him to demand anything he wanted from Him.
The saint replied, “When I used to wish for things, You never gave me... and now when I don’t wish for anything anymore, You want me to ask You for anything I want. Now, I don’t want anything.”
God said, “You have conquered your senses of desire and that's what pleased Me. Your desires were the only barrier between you and Me. Now the obstacle of desires is no more and your heart is pure. So, I want to give you something.”
The saint thought for while and said, “I want power to heal sick people by just a single touch and for dry trees to come back to life with my touch.”
God agreed and granted his wish.
The saint stopped for a second and said, “I want to make a little change in my wish. I want that I would be able to heal sick people and dry trees not by my touch but by the presence of only my shadow.
God inquired, “Is there any doubt about healing with touch?”
The saint replied, “No God... but I don’t want people to know that they can benefit from my touch. Because once a person feel that he has power, he can easily get back into this life circle and desires. Then this power you gave me will do more evil to me than good. I just want to help people in silence.”

Moral:

Too much desire is the cause of mental unhappiness. We should help others without thinking that we are doing a favour for them.

CORNER-STONE OF FAITH


“I am inspired by my faith in God!”

Faith in God is a cornerstone on which I build my life. Yet when I first come up against a challenge or when one seems to reach unmanageable proportions, I may be so focused on the challenge that I forget how faith-filled I am.

Right where I am – even in the middle of a crisis – all the positive prayers and thoughts and actions from the past are a lifeline in awareness to divine inner power. I discover that I am stronger and wiser than I ever before realized I could be.

It is true : God never gives up on me, even when I am ready to give up on myself. Faith rushes in when I leave the door to my heart and mind open even a tiny crack. Faith creates an atmosphere of hope that draws to me the right people, jobs, ideas, and whatever else I need.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
- Hebrews 11:1

Divine Thought - 76


The Strength


VEDA 193


[expr030.jpg]

Water as such or fire as such cannot move a train; they must both cooperate to produce the third thing, steam. The steam moves the engine forward. The curbing of the mind, it is, that takes you to the winning post. Petrol and air must both unite to form the mixture of gas, which ignites and produces energy to haul a car.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 10



Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 10


The guidance
Of God
Comes only to those
That treasure
The present moment.
Those who roam
In the past or
In the future
Lose the strength
Of faith
And instead
Find themselves trailing
In the heat of doubts.
Past is already gone.
What is to come
Is what you are NOW.
Know that
And give yourself
Completely
To the moment
That is there...
Right now...
And what is to come
Will be the reflection
Of your steadfastness
To that resolve...
"I am not what I was
Or what I am to be
I am what I am
To my Self
This very moment."
Face every moment
Without any fear!


(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.
