I would advise you to become the flute, for then, the Lord will come to you, pick you up, put you to his lips and breath through you and out of hollowness of your heart, due to the utter absence of egoism that you have developed, he will create captivating music for all creation to enjoy. Be straight without any will of your own, merge your will in the will of God. That is divine life. You can lay claim to the name of a devotee only when you have placed yourself in His hands, fully, completely, with no trace of ego kept back to cater to your vanity.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
