LOVING THOUGHTS


“My thoughts of others are God-centered thoughts of love and acceptance.”

I know that my thoughts help create my experiences. Thinking positive thoughts about myself helps me to do and be my best always.

The same is true of my relationships. If I am thinking the best about my family and friends, I bring the best to my relationships with them.

The very best thoughts I can think are God-centered thoughts of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. So I don’t think less of friends and loved ones than what is true about them : They are children of God who deserve to be thought of with true, honorable, just, and positive thoughts.

My loving, patient thoughts create loving, long-lasting relationships.

“Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable… think about these things.”
- Philippians 4:8

Faith


Sai Jewel - 72


VEDA 172






Worry and grief, there will always be, of one type or other, in the past, present and future; while waking, dreaming and sleeping. But, place faith in the Lord and do your tasks as dedicated to him and they both will vanish. More than food for stomach, man needs food for the spirit.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 10



Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 10


The guidance
Of God
Comes only to those
That treasure
The present moment.
Those who roam
In the past or
In the future
Lose the strength
Of faith
And instead
Find themselves trailing
In the heat of doubts.
Past is already gone.
What is to come
Is what you are NOW.
Know that
And give yourself
Completely
To the moment
That is there...
Right now...
And what is to come
Will be the reflection
Of your steadfastness
To that resolve...
"I am not what I was
Or what I am to be
I am what I am
To my Self
This very moment."
Face every moment
Without any fear!


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

GEM 173



Contemplation on God is the only means to keep the senses pure.

Power of God


This is a true story that happen to me about four years ago.

It was the first Sunday in December and we were in our Sunday School to learn about a family that had been referred from social services that was in real need of clothes and food.

Our director began to describe what he saw when he and the social worker had paid the family a visit earlier in the week. The mother was working two jobs trying to feed and clothe three children. He told how the mother said that she had tried all year to save money for Christmas presents but it was just not there. All her money was going to just buy food and she couldn't remember when she had bought clothes for her children last.

As he continued to describe what he saw, my mind began to remember all the Christmas's that I had as a child. I could still smell all the mixtures of different things drifting from the kitchen where my mom was cooking. The sight of a big Christmas tree with presents piled all around and the looks on each of the faces of my family as we opened Christmas presents. I just couldn't imagine what it would be like to have a Christmas that was being described to us. What -- no food, no presents, no family gatherings and no Christmas tree?

The director said he would like to take up an offering and anything that was received would be used to help make this the best Christmas ever. As the plate began to make its way around I opened my wallet only to find one dollar. I wanted to give more but I just didn't have it. I passed the plate on by without putting anything in. As I started to put my wallet back up, I suddenly remember that the week before Thanksgiving my wife and I had gone on a trip with some friends. When I go on trips I always try to hide some reserve money in my wallet, just in case we need something.

I opened my wallet and sure enough the money was still there. Folded behind a picture was one $100 bill. I thought for a second and then realized that they needed it far worse than I did. As we were going to our classes I stopped the director and put the money in the plate. He looked shocked and said are you sure you don't want any change? I told him that they need it more than I did and that he better take it before I changed my mind.

Well, as that Sunday went on I soon forgot what had happened that morning. At lunch that day my family and I had gone to the local restaurant to eat. My in-laws were already there and soon were finished eating before we were. As they were leaving, they stopped by our table to say hi and just chat.

Just then my mother-in-law turned, reached out her hand as to give me something and said "We had a yard sale yesterday and I sold some things that I realized belonged to you."

She then stuck some money in my hand. I thanked her and as she walked away I opened my hand.

Chills ran up and down my spine as I stared at exactly the same amount and exactly the same denomination bill that I had given earlier... one $100 bill!

How the power of God was so real, I will never forget that Christmas.

TREASURES OF THE HEART


“I remain ever one in spirit with God and with my loved ones.”

Some of my greatest treasures are keepsakes that remind me of my loved ones. Looking at photographs, letters, and cards stirs up memories of people who are dear to my heart.

The images of loved ones in photographs remain forever young, although the people I love and cherish may have aged and even passed away. The real truth about these people, about all people, cannot be captured by a camera.

We are all forever young in spirit! As spiritual beings, we do take on physical form. Although the physical form is changeable, spirit is eternal. We are eternally alive in spirit!

More than memories connect me with my loved ones. I remain forever one in spirit with God and with my loved ones.

“I am with you always.”
- Matthew 28:20

Hunger


VEDA 171






It is foolishness to brood over mishaps and mistakes once committed and punish yourself for them. What is good of ill-treating the body for the sake of correcting the mind.



(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

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.
