One need not fly away from hearth and home to cultivate affection towards supreme. If the seed is planted far away from the parent tree, does it become any different? Boil it and then of course, it will not grow again and burden the world. Similarly, boil your instincts and impulses and scorch the sensory cravings that enslave you. That brings you nearer to God, wherever you may be.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
