Blessings 140

Chant The Divine Name

Embodiments of Love!  Purify your minds.  Shed jealousy and hatred.  Chanting God's name will confer bliss on you.  You are unable to understand the inner feelings of joy that the chanting of the Divine name will yield.  You should identify yourself with the Divine vibrations which are like electric waves creating boundless energy.

(Sanathana Sarathi, April 1994, pg 99)

Love Is My Instrument

I am the embodiment of love : love is My instrument.  There is no creature without love; the lowest love itself, at least, and its "Self is God".  So, there are no atheists, though some might dislike Him or refuse Him, as malarial patients dislike sweets or diabetic patients refuse to have anything to do with sweet.  Those who preen themselves as atheists will, one day, when their illness is gone, relish God and revere Him.

(Sanathana Sarathi, August 1994, back cover)

The Bigger Picture

Trusting that larger forces than yourself are at work in your life, you will give up the demand
for the outcome you think you want and learn to appreciate whatever it is you get.
This is true freedom.
- Carol Orsborn

I may feel, at times, that no matter how hard I try, I just cannot make things work out the way they should.  Then I know it is time to let go.  I let go and let God work through me to bring order to my activities.
From time to time, I face challenges that leave me feeling inadequate or frustrated because I know how things should be.  Letting go gets me past these feelings and helps me see the bigger picture, one in which God's order is very present.

So I make letting go a moment-by-moment, situation-by-situation practice.  Beginning with small, everyday occurrences and including everything that comes my way, I let go and let God help me out.  With God's help, nothing is impossible for me.

As I let go and place everything in God's care, I begin to see the bigger picture.

True Devotion

Men are wasting their precious lives in the pursuit of fleeting and petty pleasures.  Make the best use of the opportunity you have now got.  That is true devotion.  You alone are responsible for your condition because of the way your mind works.  Do your duty, recognize the truth of your being, and you will be able to experience your divinity.  You have to purify your heart to experience the Divine.  You may have desires, aspirations and yearning for happiness.  By there is nothing equal to the bliss of experiencing the Divine and you will secure this bliss, wherever God may be.

(Sanathana Sarathi, April 1994, pg 91)

Giving Love and Receiving No Pain

Giving Love and Receiving No Pain

Criticism is an expression of silent inner aggression.

You can only fear criticism when you have a desire for recognition and praise.

Those that criticize you do so only because they have feared the glimpse of strength that they have seen within you.

Always keep within a positive state of being....... Place the trust in your heart...... There is no one that can dare to pose negativity before you then. 

You are always in the constant observation of others...... And you must always be in the constant observation of your true Self.

You feel pain when others criticize you because you begin to believe in their observation of you.

Know that no one can know you other than yourself...... believe in that...... stand by it........ and keep your peace.

Yes! Sometimes those that are closest to you shall criticize you...... They shall misunderstand your love for them...... But that is no time for you to cry and seek self pity!  That is the time you have to be clear in your thoughts........ That is the time you have to be far from the waves of emotion...... That is the time you have to dive deep into your heart and say boldly,"I love you.... and I shall not stain it with your fears and misunderstanding....... I am there for you now...... I was there for you then."

Think of God endlessly...... Praise Him for His love and kindness...... Thank Him for His unconditional friendship toward you....... Recognize Him as your strength........ Cherish His Hand that holds yours........ Realize all that comes to you as His grace........ Be fearless in His love...... Be confident in your faith...... That is all that you need....... That is the pillar you shall lean on to handle the fears of your own mind and to face the fears of others.

There is no friend...... there is no enemy...... You create both with the desires you foster and the fears you sustain.  The positive and the negative are both the reflections of what you think.... you understand...... you feel...... you experience as mind and body....... Both the friend and the enemy shall vanish when the mind shall perish and the heart shall rule!

You must do all that you do with a pure attitude....... If your heart is clean, no one else's misunderstanding of you shall bother you....... You are bothered by criticism only because somewhere deep within there is a slight truth to it....... But if your love has been true, then at that moment when you are being criticized, it will continue to remain true.........  Not only will you not be touched by the negativity, you shall with your pure love turn his misunderstanding to a realization of God's strength that is within you...... and also within him!

Devotion To God

Any human being who has compassion for others, who adheres to Truth and who dedicates his body to the good of others will experience no serious trouble.  The primary reason is one's devotion to God.

(Sanathana Sarathi, September 1994, pg 225)

Beyond Appearances

Forgiveness does not deny anger but faces it head-on.
- Alice Miller

I may hear of or see people performing great feats of physical strength and be amazed at what the human body is capable of doing.  But I, too, can perform amazing feats through spiritual power - regardless of my body build or strength.
One way I can exercise spiritual power is through forgiveness.  With God as my source and inspiration, I can forgive, which frees me of any hurt feelings or anger.

And if I feel the situation is so overwhelming that I will never be able to forgive, I remember Jesus' example of pure love and forgiveness.  He said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

With divine vision, I see beyond appearances to the truth of God's wisdom and power in me.

I look beyond appearances to the truth of God's presence.

In Love With Truth

I have fallen in love with truth
I only want to be with her
I can not stand to be apart
I would gladly go to the ends of the earth
or I would never again move from this spot
just to be sure to inhale her fragrant perfume
with my dying breath
I have fallen in love with truth
her every wish my command
I simply must obey
for she has captured my soul
and taken complete control
of even my innermost thoughts
freeing me to find repose
in her unadorned splendor
I have fallen in love with truth
with exquisite tenderness she shows me
the perfection in my every flaw
no need for pretense
for she knows everything about me
and yet takes me in her arms
with complete abandon
until only she remains

- Nirmala -


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.
