IF I CAN STOP ONE HEART



IF I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

Sai Jewel - 86


PURE HEART

VEDA 374





One may be wealthy but wealth is useless if one lacks character. After death, are you able to carry your bank balance with you? No. It will remain in the bank only. You can not carry even a fistful of sand with you. So, character is most essential.


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

ST TERESA - THE LITTLE FLOWER


Think of St. Teresa, the little flower. She lived in a convent - a life of goodness and purity and service, and this aroused jealousy among the other sisters. Some took advantage of her goodness. This is a common complaint. People say to me, you speak of the spirit of forgiveness. But if we continue to forgive, people take undue advantage. Teresa did not mind. She went a step further. She rejoiced when some of the other inmates of the convent took advantage of her.

She went on being humiliated, laughed at, chaffed. Some misunderstood her innocence and characterized it as stupidity : she did not mind. She went her way : she called it the "little way". She realized that until she had become nothing, until she had completely emptied herself, she would not be acceptable to the Lord. She understood that the key - the only key - to the portal of 'being' is 'not-to-be.'

She wished to keep her cell clean and tidy. In her absence, some threw dirt and dust in the cell and made it unclean. She accepted it as God's Will : and never did a word of complaint leave her lips.

She was fond of a pretty little jug. Someone took it away. The pretty jug was replaced by a heavy, cracked one. "So much better," she said to herself, "I will be free from attachment to things."

One evening, she could not find her lamp and had to go without her reading. She sat in the dark and experienced the joy of having absolutely nothing.

When she did anything for anybody, she hated to be noticed. She willingly accepted the blame that was due to others. She never tried to explain to her superior that someone else was the culprit. When she was wrongly blamed for having broken a vase, she kissed the ground and promised to be more careful. She went out of her way to do things for a sister who was rude to her : Teresa persevered with tireless patience until the cross-gained sister became a devoted and gentle friend.

She forgave the hurts she did not deserve and, in her heart, there was nothing but love for those who regarded themselves as her enemies but whom she thought of as children of God. She walked the way of forgiveness and became a saint. Today, she shines as a radiant star in the firmament of the world's spiritual leaders.

GEM 376



Love is the fan which will make you glow with Divine effulgence.


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

Beloved 12


Beloved,

You were created in joy to be a blessing.  The beauty of your soul is a beacon of love, a beacon to others of the whole and holy beings you and they are!

You are a source of inspiration in the world!  As you grow and unfold more and more each day, you will be an example for others - an example of how to live from the beauty of spirit within.  My spirit is within you and within all people, and nothing is impossible for you individually or collectively with others.

Yes, you were created in joy - and joy is yours to express in abundance as you more fully realize the unlimited potential that lies within you.


"My spirit within me earnestly seeks you."
- Isaiah 26:9


(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry) 

Sai Darshan 1 (Universal) - Part 1 - 1


I have come to answer all your questions. 
All will be answered at the right time. 
When the time is right 
The event itself will be your answer. 
Look at this window. 
It shows day as day and night as night. 
If you pull this blind down 
You cannot make night day and day night. 
So pull up that blind. 
I have come to help you to do that. 
I will show you day as day and night as night 
And accept it. 
You work in the day time and sleep at night. 
You cannot sleep in the day time and work at night. 
Everything is done when the time is right.

Steady Faith



Through desire to judge or estimate or evaluate, you cannot discover the mystery of God. Through devotion and faith, you have to win His grace, which will reveal Him to your understanding and experience. Steady faith alone can earn victory.



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

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 82



Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 82


God makes you
Earn your goodness
Rather than
Simply giving it to you
For He knows
That the human mind
Cherishes not
What is given easily...
And returns the gift unused!



(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.
