I insist on five points of discipline : (1) Silence. It promotes self-control. It lessens chances of anger, hate, malice, greed and pride. You can hear His footsteps only when there is silence. (2) Cleanliness. Inner and outer cleanliness are essential if you desire to install God in your heart. (3) Service. It broadens your vision; widens your awareness and deepens your compassion. (4) Love. Love is God, live in Love. Love does not calculate or weigh the reaction, result or reward. (5) Hatelessness. No being is to be looked down upon as secondary, inferior, unimportant or expendable. Each has its assigned role in the drama designed by the Almighty. He is in every being and so slighting any being becomes sacrilege.
