Counter Hatred and Malice with Selfless Love


This is the bedrock on which you can build the mansion of happiness, this recognition of the Divine, that motivates you from within.  You claim to be devotees, with hearts full of love and devotion; you roll rosaries over your fingers and roll the Name over your tongues; you indulge in breathing exercises or contortional feats, but, unless you revere all and worship in the abandon of selfless love, you only insult the unique tradition of this land.  Passion, agitation, anxiety - these degrade human nature.  They are born out of hatred, malice or envy, which love alone can counteract.  When you have here the very Embodiment of Love as your dearest treasure, why welcome into your hearts the waves of hatred, faction, fear and doubt?  Why turn them into volcanoes of cruelty and wickedness when they can smile as green valleys of fragrant flowers?

POSSIBILITY


"As a creation of God, I am enriched with potential and possibility."


Perhaps I feel that in some relationship, job, or situation, I am capable of giving more and being more.

I accept this feeling as something positive - an inner urging to claim and experience the great untapped potential that is within me. I can do more and be more. I do not have to settle for less, for as a creation of God, I am always in the process of becoming more.

Each day I am moving forward to become something greater than I have ever been in the past. No matter what my age, I am never finished growing. Me development is real and ongoing - moment to moment, day to day, year to year.

I am a creation of God, and God has created me as one who is enriched with potential and possibility.


"My Father is still working, and I also am working."
- John 5:17

Mutual Love and Brotherliness only can Save the World


At the present time, when we see all over the country, confusion, fear and anxiety, each one must contribute his share of cool, calm love to suppress the anger and fury.  No governmental authority can suppress it as effectively and as quickly as you can by love and brotherliness.  The world can be saved only by the power of the Atma inherent in everyone; this has to be tapped by individual sadhana, and by the grace of God which can be won only through love, purity and service.  If these two are absent, pralaya is certain; it is inevitable.

Where A Forest Has Grown


I was giving myself a bad time of it the other day. It was one of those moments when you question your life. I kept wondering if I had done enough to learn, to grow, to help others, and to make this world a better place. I was being a tough judge on myself too. It was then, however, that God in His infinite wisdom gave me peace by awakening in my mind an old story that I had read many years before. 

The story begins when a young man taking a lone hiking trip loses his way and finds himself stranded without water in a desolate treeless valley. He is saved, though, when a widowed shepherd finds him and leads him to a spring. The man learns that the shepherd after losing his wife had decided to restore the ruined landscape by single-handedly planting a forest, tree by tree, with only a curling pole and acorns that he had collected from many miles away. 

Many years later the man returns and finds a growing forest in the valley and the shepherd, now a bee keeper still at work cultivating and nurturing the woodland. The man continues to visit the valley each year and watches as over four decades the tree planter turns the valley into a Garden of Eden. In the end the man helps his friend to get the government to protect the forest and many people move there. He also visits him one last time as the now very old tree planter peacefully passes away. 

Thinking of that story made me realize that each of us is a tree planter too. We plant trees of goodness with every loving thought we think, every kind word we share, and every caring act we do. We plant these trees each and everyday of our lives. We should waste no time judging ourselves then while there are more trees to plant. And at the end of our lives when we face our Heavenly Father, we can smile and see where a forest has grown.

Awareness of the Divine Origin of Live brought Peace and Happiness


India is the land, where the dichotomy of 'that' and 'this', of 'creator' and 'creation', of 'energy' and 'matter', was resolved in one grand unity, by both theory and practice, in philosophical schools and in hermitages.  The tree of life, with its countless branches profilerating into thoughts, words and deeds, attitudes, tendencies and impulses, is known by the sages of India to have its roots in heaven!  So, every rule and ritual was made sacred and holy, suffused with purity, humility and love.

PRAY FOR OTHERS


"In prayer, I affirm that my loved ones are being blessed."

Loved ones can seem to have such serious needs that I may wonder if their needs can be resolved. How then do I pray? I pray with them and for them, affirming that they are being blessed:

"God, I pray for my loved ones and affirm that they are being blessed. I do not know what is best for them, but I know that You do. You are everywhere present. Therefore, Your healing, guiding, prospering presence is with my loved ones."

"You are with and within my loved ones right now. Your life sets into motion healing of mind, body, and emotions. You guide and prosper them in ways far and above the very best I can imagine. I give thanks that You are healing and guiding my loved ones right now."


"If two of you agree on earth about anything you ask,
it will be done for you by my Father in heaven."
- Matthew 18:19

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.
