GEM 513

Humility calls for actions free from egoism and self importance.

Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 43

A child asked his mother,
"O mother dear
If there is a God
So true to us
And perfect...
Then why is the world
Not perfect?"
The mother smiled
And embraced
Her sweet one and replied,
"If that were to be
Then how could I learn
That the love
That I have for you
Is nothing but
His love for me...
O sweet son
If things were always straight
Then how could I see
His glorious hands
Mend my ways...
And if all remained
The same...
Then time could not tell
The stories of the sweet Lord
That turned its hands
Always... toward Him
And then realize
My sweet pure one
God would remain silent
And His glory
Would never be known
In the midst
Of these imperfections
Is the perfect word of God
That we shall all find...
Speak... Reach...
And become the beacons
Of His light
Within which lies
His expansive truth and 
His Infinite Glory

(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)



" The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems,but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect."

A group of graduates, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the simple and cheap ones.

While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee.

In most cases, it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups... Then you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this:

- Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups.
- They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.
- Sometimes, by concentrating on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us. Enjoy your coffee!."

* The happiest people don't have the best of everything.
* They just make the best of everything."

1. Live simply.
2. Love generously.
3. Care deeply.
4. Speak kindly.
5. Leave the rest to God.

You are the miracle, my friend; Your life either shines a light OR casts a shadow! Shine a light & Enjoy the Coffee!!!

Beloved 35


In your times of prayer, you have come to Me for solutions to what is challenging you.  Yet, you may wonder how to know if a thought, an idea, or a plan is a divine solution.

The answer is quite simple.  You will know in the depths of your soul that the guidance you receive is perfect for you.  You will know because you receive confirmation from your heart and soul.

My love - divine love - dwells within you.  When I speak to you, your faith will answer with a resounding "Yes!"

Because you are first and foremost a spiritual being, you desire to be pure love and understanding.  Aware that My peace resides within you, you will never settle for anything less than the serenity that fills your soul.

"He touched their eyes and said, 'According to your faith, let it be done to you.'
And their eyes were opened."
- Matthew 9:29-30

However high a bird may soar, it has sooner or later to perch a tree top to enjoy quiet.

Joyful Celebration

When people attend my one-woman stand-up routine, they feel really good
after an hour of laughing.  And I get the greatest lift in the world.
- Phyllis Diller

Just thinking back to a time when I felt great joy brings a smile to my lips.  A sweet memory sparks a gladness of the soul, and emotional and physical response that lifts me up even when I am feeling down.
I am energized by the joy I feel when I think of the future, anticipating a time when a dream or goal might become a reality.  I am ready to move on when only a moment before I may have felt less than enthusiastic about anything.

And what about the joy in the present?  When I live the joy of God - the joy of my spiritual identity - my thoughts are whispers of gladness that keep me positive and focused on celebrating my own spiritual identity and the spirituality of all others.

The joy of God lives through me as a celebration of my spirituality.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 15

God alone
Shall provide
Your needs...
Be bold
And have determination
In your devotion.
God alone
Shall give you
The answers...
Be steadfast
In your quest
For the truth.
God alone
Can be your joy...
Forget your demands
And turn
Completely toward
Your faith in Him.
God alone knows...
What is best.
Pray that
You remember that...
And find
In His company.
You are never alone...
I am always with you!

(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)


Whatever your cross,

whatever your pain,

there will always be sunshine,

after the rain ....

Perhaps you may stumble,

perhaps even fall,

But God's always ready,

To answer your call ...

He knows every heartache,

sees every tear,

A word from His lips,

can calm every fear ...

Your sorrows may linger,

throughout the night,

But suddenly vanish,

in dawn's early light ...

The Savior is waiting,

somewhere above,

To give you His grace,

and send you His love...

Whatever your cross,

whatever your pain,

"God always sends rainbows ....

after the rain ... "

To get out of difficulty, one must usually go through it !

(From : Shared Text)


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.
