Only Selfless Service clarifies the Consciousness

Through activity, man attains purity of consciousness.  In fact, man has to welcome activity with this end in view.  And why strive for a pure consciousness?  Imagine a well with polluted and muddy water so that they bottom of the well cannot be seen.  Similarly, within man's heart, deep down in his consciousness, we have the atman.  But it can be cognised only when the consciousness is clarified.  Your imaginings, your inferences, your judgments and prejudices, your passions, emotions and egoistic desires, muddy the consciousness and make it opaque.  How then, can you become aware of the atman that is at the very base?  Through seva rendered without any desire to placate one's ego and with only the well-being of others in view is it possible to cleanse the consciousness and have the atman revealed.

- Baba -


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.
