If everything is dedicated to the Lord, there will be no room for worry or sorrow or even joy. If you rid yourself thus of attachment, santhi can never be disturbed. I, my, mine, my own, your, yours... when these ideals take hold of the mind, santhi suffers a setback. To get the attitude of sincerely offering all to Him, prema is essential, prema combined with faith in oneself. That is what is called bhakti. Cultivate it steadily every day and derive joy therefrom. Again, one should also have mind filled with samaras, a vision of equality, the conviction that fundamentally all are same. The spiritual life is not a matter of meaningless talk; it is really life lived in the atman; it is the experience of pure ananda; it is just another name for the full life.
